They do remind me of my youth and the 80-ties style is very much up my stream. The colour is perfect, pale blue, so all other pastels harmonize with it as shown in this example. The blouse highly elasticated can be worn in many ways, but the most comfortable is just pulled above the shoulders. Let me also draw attention to the bag, highly inspired by Chanel is surprisingly roomy and despite clinking of the chains comfortable to wear. I have finished off with some pearly jewellery for an even more feminine touch to offset the masculine trousers.
This is an example how things not always go to plan.
This was supposed to be Chanel inspired look. The Chanel inspired earrings-check, the coat-check, the bag-check, the casual vibe-check. And still, somehow it is a big flop. The look is wearable, but either the picture is not the best or the rest of the elements bring it down, Will soon attempt something Chanel inspired, hopefully, next time will be more successful.
Flares always make a statement in any outfit. I do need to be in a mood to wear them as they always draw the attention of passers-by. Living in the era of skinny jeans any other cut will be noticed especially the opposite one. But this time I think I have cracked it. I do not look like taken out of the 70-ties. Whether it is the baseball top or the oversized blazer or the hair pulled back. I do like the look.
this might be, but practical it is not. Winter white is very in vogue. It looks exceptionally fresh and one does stand out in a crowd of sensibly dressed in all black people. But only if you like drama. The drama of avoiding all puddles especially near the roads, all friendly dogs and basically not being able to risk sitting on any surface in case of transferring the dirt onto yourself. Jokes aside I do fancy this look. Casual but different, comfortable but elevated. Colours do all the work, or rather lack of them? And it’s not boring as all garments have different textures.
Not all trends should be followed, but sometimes sheer luck allows you to dip your toes into unknown territories. During the summer sales purely by chance, I have come across those latex leggings in my size for £3. If they were the full price I probably would have omitted them entirely. I do like the colour and they fit well although they are not very stretchy and when walking they make a specific noise. I have seen lots of latex on runways for winter 20/21 so wearing it during a day is not a new concept. They do make a bit of a statement so I have paired them with something more earthy in form of the woven, geish-beige cardigan and a woven bag. Both of them add different texture so not everything is shiny and reflective. Confession time: the boots are new but from sales too.
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.
As you can see, I’m still not over metallics. In the middle of winter, I have found these trousers in a charity shop and thought of a sunny, spring day when I’m going to wear them. The most comfortable trousers they are not, but I love the two-tone metallic finish. I have paired them with a jumper I have bought last year and some pink statement earrings and pink trainers. The bag is rose-gold so in other words kind of pink too.
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.
Another look with the red coat. Despite being a bright colour, the coat seems to be very versatile. This time paired with a dress that I had for ages, the red in the flowers goes with the red coat and the rest of the accessories is brown. I have even dug out a necklace, in the shape of an elephant, that I used to wear when I was a teenager and that was a long time ago.
