Kiss band tee: ZARA | Khaki beanie hat: ASOS | Skinny leather trousers & chunky boyfriend watch: RIVER ISLAND | Shoes: CONVERSE via AMAZON

Oh hi awesome new top.  My mum got me this for Christmas and today is my first time wearing it.  I mentioned in one of my recent posts that I can't put my style into a particular category, but this year I do want to experiment more with cool, grungy looks - so what better way to start than with a band tee?  I'm gonna throw my hands up and say I'm not one of these people who throws a hissy fit when someone is wearing a band tee without actually listening to the band, what I do know is they're stupidly rock'n'roll and Gene Simmons seems like a pretty awesome guy, so that's all I need.  I do promise to listen to some of their stuff as some point though as I like to give everyone a try.  I mean, they might make songs which suit my music taste and I don't even know it.  I've recently been trying to get into The Rolling Stones because I love their new song/video - but I don't seem to like any of their old stuff.  No one tell my brother, though, he might get a little defensive.
There was no doubt in my mind about what I'd wear it with first, my hands went straight for the leather pants.  All I need now is some black and white paint on my face and I'm practically as rock'n'roll as they are... Right?  I debated adding some red lipstick but decided to go with the khaki hat instead, maybe I could have done both but I wasn't sure so I left it.  I think the beanie gives the look a bit more of the grunge which I was looking for and also adds a nice contrast of colour to the outfit.  It makes a nice change from wearing my go-to pompom hats, too.
I really like this outfit and think it's a great way to start the new year.  I hope to invest in more band tops in the future.  I hope you all had a great night last night, I probably don't need to tell you about mine as I put some pictures up of it at about half four this morning, but after looking at my Twitter today apparently I'm one of the few people who aren't hungover.
My average bed time at the moment is six o' clock (yes, in the morning) which isn't great, so I don't know how I'm going to do it but I am determined to wake up early tomorrow so I can film a video.  Like I've mentioned before I really want to start a Youtube channel and sooner rather than later, so I'll have to see how that goes.
Hope you're having a nice day!
