When I got the trousers I was determined to wear them a lot, as the skinny jeans are getting a bit boring now, not that I don’t love them. That would be my typical way to wear them – with something more voluminous on top. This blouse has served me well for a few years now and I still find it current. I wanted the accessories to be all brown and if I can’t find something I will make it as I did the earrings. Heeled boots to give me hight, as the trousers need it, and a vintage bucket bag to complete it all.
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.
So I have dug up that old relic coat of mine that is very warm (wool+cashmere) slightly old fashioned cut but it’s way too good to get rid off and tried to keep everything in the same tone. The top is from Zara and looks very, Chanel-like plus grey trousers plus brogues, all in my books very relaxed and modern.
What do you wear with a lacy black blouse? Blacktop? – Boring. Whitetop?- Classic. Glitter?- Fabulous! I already have a dress in exactly the same glittery fabric, so when I saw this top in a charity shop for £3 I had to have it. The glitter is going nowhere any time soon. Winter Fashion 2020 is still full of it and I intend to wear it too. I have combined it with also glittery trousers and a black coat. The outfit may be mostly black but thanks to all different textures seem more vibrant.
I have worn these dungarees a few times and every time I’m trying to give them a different feel. I have done sporty and casual this time is sexier. I have found this top in a charity shop and got it as it is a good basic but it has a very deep decolletage so I have turned it back to front to make it more season-appropriate. Long silver earrings to match the hardware in the dungarees and a blazer to elevate it slightly which I later swapped for a jacket as it got chillier.
Have you ever build a whole outfit around a bag just because you can’t be asked to move your stuff to another one, I just did. The bag is red so I needed another red thing and there it is an old favourite, an Adidas top with a very unusual cut that is fitted and flattering. White polo-neck to match the stipes and army green bottom. Oatmeal coat to make it feel lighter.
This look happens when you open your wardrobe, see something that you haven’t worn for a while and decide to build the whole outfit around it. My inspiration was the teal cardigan that you barely can see. I love the colour and then I thought about what would go with it. Decided that navy blue will be the dominant colour and then started pulling out things that have not seen the daylight for a while. The puffer jacket is the seasonal necessity so is the scarf, but once I have added a bit of brown, had to wear brown boots. Frills and fringe- why not?
It is balmy warm for this time of the year so I’m starting to wear spring clothes in winter. The colour scheme is based on the colours of the blouse I had for years. Pink and mint together look very fresh.
So apparently polka dots are back in fashion, but when were they not in. This navy blouse is embellished with silver dots and a nice classic to have for dressing down like shown above or for more formal occasions.
