E’s lookbook ‘Yellow lace’

Lookbook:

Cardigan unknown

Top: Luxzuz

Jeans: Primark

Belt: Primark

Trainers: Primark

A lacy, pale yellow top worn with pale green cardigan, paper bag waist pale bluedenim, tan belt and trainers.

It felt better than it looks.

Another take on pastels. Plain colours but all with different textures. Knitt, lace and denim. Hugely comfortable, vastly wearable and casual. I have swapped the belt for another one that picks up on the colour of the trainers

E’s lookbook ‘Old navy classic’

Lookbook:

Cardigan: Monsoon

Bomber: Stella

Trousers: H&M

Brogues: Primark

Bag: Rowallan

A pale pink, floral bomber jacket worn with a waterfall navy blue cardigan, pink brogues and navy blue jeans and a bag.

The picture does not do it a justice.

The bomber jacket barely visible in this picture has a floral print with a pale gold metallic thread and pale pink background and it’s stunning. Combined with a much plainer cardigan, skinny jeans and pale pink brogues makes the outfit wearable and cool. want more colour keep the cardigan open, want it less wrap the cardigan up. the colour combination is neutral with a bit of a pop of metallic. overall a croud pleaser.

E’s lookbook ‘More latex and velour’

Lookbook:

Cardigan: River Island

Dress: Stradivarius

Leggings: Edge Street

Bag unknown

Boots: Linzi

A long, burgundy cardigan worn with dusky pink, velour dress, burgundy, latex leggings, burgundy. boots and a neutral colour clutch bag.

More ideas for latex leggings.

It is difficult to not to wear thick tights in autumn/ winter when temperatures start getting uncomfortable. The only problem is that tights look a bit aged. I think I have found a solution to this problem- latex leggings. Not only do they do the same job of protecting our skin, but also look modern and being very slippery they do eliminate wardrobe malfunctions. Again just like in the other outfit I have opted for mixing textures. Shiny latex, less shiny velour dress and matt knit in the cardigan. Colour palette is also rather monochromatic- shades of burgundy and dusky pink.


E’s lookbook ‘New favourite combination’

Lookbook:

Jumper: Next

Blouse- vintage

Long shorts: Primark

Boots: Dune

A navy blue bobble cardigan worn with warm brown buttoned-up blouse, navy blue long shorts, brown long boots and a vintage belt.

Altering clothes does pay off.

Altering clothes does pay off. As I have mentioned before the pair of the long shorts used to be just a pair of ill-fitted trousers. But after some crafty alterations, it became shorts that I actually look forward to wearing. They are in my favourite colour- navy blue. Personally I think blondes look better in that colour as supposed to ever-existing black. The cardigan is also navy blue. Navy blue with shades of brown creates a very classical combination that I intend to reuse over and over again. I hope the addition of the vintage belt makes it more ornated.

E’s lookbook ‘Rosegold sequins’

Lookbook:

Jacket handmade

Cardigan: Qued

Vest unknown

Trousers: Stradivarius

Flats: Primark

Bak: Kaemingk

Well, when you just can’t wait until next summer. I have just got this rose gold sequined top for absolute pennies and decided that today I’m going to wear it no matter what. To start with the weather is rather cold, so I need to layer. Typically I seem to have a polo neck in most colours , but not in beige. On the other hand, I do have a cardigan in such colour so it had to do. If it is a bit odd to wear a vest over a cardigan, let me tell you it’s only clothes that you take off at the end of the day. To make everything colour coordinated I went with beige trousers and a pale pink tailored jacket, pink shoes and a beige bag. And it didn’t rain today.

E’s lookbook ‘Nautical preppy’

Lookbook:

Earrings: Primark

Vest: H&M

Cardigan: Primark

Skirt: M&S

Sandals: Select

Bag: Rowallan

I am very pleased with this look. I have bought this cardigan at the beginning of the year because it looked very preppy to me. I prefer navy blue to black and I have a lot of things in this colour. As I was rummaging through my things I have come across the skirt that I got in a charity shop a long time ago and it all clicked, the colours are spot on. I have chosen green, stripy vest to make it more modern and give it some interest and also because I’m obsessed with green at the moment. The pale gold earrings match the hardware in the cardigan.

E’s lookbook ‘Vibrant pink, wide-leg trousers’

Lookbook:

Cardigan: Primark

Trousers: Primark

Trainers: Primark

Earrings: Primark

Suits in vibrant colours are very much in at the moment but do not let the fashion dictate what you need to wear. As much as I like a bit of strong colour on my bottom half, the jacket to go with it would be a bit much for me, also the colour isn’t the most flattering for my complexion. So I have stuck to my guts and only got the trousers, which will go with a lot of things that I already possess.

E’s lookbook ‘Fuchsia cardigan’

Lookbook:

Cardigan: Phase Eight

Vest: Primark

Bracelet unknown

Denim: Dele

Trainers: Primark

Bag: Rowallan

Another relict dug out from my wardrobe. A fabulous angora cardigan in a rich fuchsia colour that actually suits my complexion now that I have some colour. I have paired it with my fav navy blue and some white accents including white trainers in which I live this summer.

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.

E’s lookbook ‘Navy blue and white’

Lookbook:

Coat: Primark

Polo-neck: Primark

Cardigan: Next

Jeans: Dele

Trainers: Primark

Bag: Rowallan

Not raining for once so let’s make the most of it and wear the white coat I got last year. I have also got this navy blue cardigan from a charity shop. I love the texture on it, it looks like fish scales. The state of the cardigan was quite appalling, but from experience, I knew that if I trim all of the ‘scales’ slightly, which took about a day while watching some TV, the cardigan will look brand new. I wanted it to be all navy blue and white and comfortable and warm, hence the perennial polo-neck, denim and trainers.
