E’s lookbook ‘Monochromatic for the rain’

Lookbook:

Jacket: Primark

Skirt: Primark

Boots: Aldo

A white, pleated faux leather skirt worn with a short, black faux leather jacket and black over the knee, faux leather boots.

Wearing a white skirt on a rainy day is asking for trouble unless it is a faux leather pleated skirt, that any dirty water can be just wiped off it. I have paired it obviously with another faux leather garment- short, black jacket and of course faux leather black boots. A monochromatic look for a rainy day.

Trousers: Primark

Bag: DKNY

Boots: Primark

A brown coat worn with a minty jumper, white shirt with broderie anglaise, black, sparkly trousers, brown boots and a black shopper.

The logic behind the picture

Making the most of the coat and warm weather. This shade of brown goes beautifully with pale green, minty colour. I have added a white shirt to make it crisper. And with broderie angles picking out around the collar adding an extra detail making this rather basic outfit more elevated. Black sparkly, trousers and a black shopper tying it all together.

Dear God, how long did I toy with buying these boots? Must be over a year now. I just couldn’t justify the purchase. They are obviously not very neutral in neither the colour nor in the embellishment, but I still wanted them. Now that I have them I will better make the most of them. The first outfit is going to be rather obvious, gather everything in a similar colour and put it together, which I think I have succeeded in. Also leather and metallics seem to go together well.

Shirt: Tu

Trousers: H&M

Sandals: Primark

Bag: DKNY

As you can see the trousers are staying with me. Now I need to try to style them differently every time. So this time a little bit 50ties style with a white linen shirt tied at the waist, big, black shopper and flat, white sandals.

Lookbook:

Kaftan: Primark

Vest: H! by Henry Holland

Trousers: Matalan

Trainers: Primark

I wanted to wear these white denim trousers, but at the same time I have felt like a squeezed up sausage, so the best way to disguise it is to wear something floaty over it. It covers your problem areas and adds a lot more interest to otherwise rather boring outfit.

Top: Zara

Necklace unknown

Trousers: Topshop

Trainers: Primark

Wristlet: Julien McDonald

This is becoming repetitive but I like white trousers in spring. In summer it’s generally too hot to wear trousers but in spring, especially after months of rain, it’s like like fresh air not having to wear dark colours. I have worn the top recently, but this time with a statement necklace unknown origins.

Lookbook:

Earrings: Primark

Blouse: Monsoon

Trousers unknown

Bag vintage

Boots: Primark

I have to make more use out of these trousers. I got them in a tiny shop selling uninteresting clothes apart from these, they have really stood out. The fabric is not the easiest to keep wrinkle-free and the length of them requires wearing heals, but they do look lush especially with a decadent looking white blouse. the colour scheme is quite classic, with black accents.

Bag vintage

Well, just like everybody else I’m stuck inside. Not much of a birthday either. But if I was going out I might have possibly had worn this outfit. The jacket is from a charity shop a ‘no-name’ it looks tailor-made and a very good quality bought from sale for very little money. The dress is from a charity shop too. The bag is vintage.

Fashion should be fun. And the colour is not reserved only for summer. When I saw this jumpsuit in a charity shop it screamed to me: summer, but to make the most of your wardrobe it’s good to try to make summer clothes work in different seasons to. This is my attempt to make it work in early spring. The jewel colours are perfect for this time of year. And since I already have plenty of colour why not to throw a bit of sparkle too, for good measures, it’s good not to play it safe sometimes, after all, it’s only clothes.

E’s lookbook ‘Camouflage trousers’

Lookbook:

Earrings: Primark

Waistcoat: H&M

Cardigan: Primark

Trousers unknown

Boots: Primark

So who would believe, but charity shops have sales too. Let’s be honest, how much use will I get out of cropped, camouflage trousers? Not that much, but for a £1 I will take the chance. On the other hand, the waistcoat should become staple in my wardrobe and for only £3 that is a bargain. I have done everything in army green and black colours.
