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.
The core of the outfit is the same as in the previous entry but I have changed the scarf and the coat and it has a completely different feel to it. Charity shops are good for picking up inexpensive little accessories like silk scarfs to zhuzh up outfits. Also, the boots were in the sale for about £7, they are not typically winter boots and I can wear them for the next 10 months whenever there is cold rainy weather. Also, I’m still amazed by the colour of the coat going with most of the colours in my wordrobe.
Winter is dreary and we tend to wear the same boring colour and save the fun colours for summer. That’s why it’s good sometimes especially when the sun is out to spice it up a bit. The camera washes out the intensity of the colour of the army green trousers and the cardigan hence the colourfull scarf really stands out. But in real life, all of the colours really went well together. I mean it’s not a real winter if you can get away with a deep v and some bare skin showing.
