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.
I always do the same colour combination every Autumn. There is something so classic about navy blue/ blue and tan that I can not resist. Something new: the coat, something vintage: the belt and mostly old: the rest. Very happy with the outcome.
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.
Of course, when you buy something you intend to wear it a lot, but I have to say I did not think this grey jacket that I’m wearing will be worn all through the winter but as the temperature remain mild I reach for it more. The length is good for my figure and the colour is neutral. This time I’m wearing it with a jumper I have bought in the kid’s section because I have wanted it to stop in my waist and new but bought in the sale flared jeans. This is called half-flare and this might be the style to go for as they seem very wearable to me. And to match a pale grey scarf and grey, heeled boots.
