You know the feeling when you find something that feels fun.
I had the feeling when I have found this jumper. It looks like taken straight out of the 80-ties. The colours, the colour blocking even the golden buttons with no purpose other than just a decoration. Can’t say that it is going to be the most versatile item in my wardrobe, but it is a jumper and it is reasonably warm. I have paired it with navy blue denim, a white coat and gold earrings- not much of a brainer. Not sure how many more styling ideas that jumper can give but wearing it that day was fun!
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.
That is exactly what I thought when I saw them in the shop. Lined, washable with actually not bad pearl accent buttons, well cut and flattering, I am immensely impressed especially that they came from Primark.
For a while, I was also on a hunt for a cropped white jumper. Most jumpers nowadays seem to be oversized or end mid-hip, the worst possible place which makes you look short and boxy. But eventually, I have found one that will go with everything high waisted that I possed.
The boots are old but unusual. Loosely woven and almost summery. The earring and the bracelets have obviously pearls theme to match the buttons.
That was my Christmas outfit since Christmas was cancelled and we were just staying home.
I was gifted the above trousers. Let’s be honest it’s not the style I do gravitate towards, but there is nothing wrong with experimenting with clothes. I wanted to wear them with a street style top and also something cropped so the top doesn’t blend into the trousers to create one big shapeless blob. And then I remembered a cropped jumper from a charity shop. While purchasing the top the shop assistant suggested I would also buy a pink necklace to go with it. Wanting to please the woman as she obviously was given a task to push more jewellery I have bought the necklace too. Never actually wanting to wear them together. But today I have changed my mind. If you want to wear something whether it goes together or not, just damn wear it. Everyone’s style is different and that’s the beauty of fashion.
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.
Need to find ways to wear these boots all the time. This time I’m wearing them with a sequined grey jumper and cargo pants. I have also rediscovered a bag that I had to take as an exchange, as a shop I purchased something did not have any refund policy. I was drawn to the bag but I had nothing to pair it with, and suddenly I have realised that the boots and the bag are almost the same colour. Which proofs my point that no matter what I will always pick similar colours as I find them the most esthetically pleasing.
Making the most of the coat and warm weather. This shade of brown goes beautifully with pale green, minty colour. I have added a white shirt to make it crisper. And with broderie angles picking out around the collar adding an extra detail making this rather basic outfit more elevated. Black sparkly, trousers and a black shopper tying it all together.
This time of the year again. Getting colder, but still too warm to jump to winter coats. A coat, just a cover-up, a bit smarter than a cardigan, but doing its job is the best answer. This one imitates suede but is much softer. A cream jumper as a homage to the gone summer. Army green trousers and brogues, navy blue bag and a stripy, homemade scarf that brings all of the colours together.
When you need something fresh but neutral also, this combination seems perfect. I have added some silver because it wouldn’t be otherwise. But it’s always good to have something beige and pale grey in your summer wardrobe. Also, I have never worn these earrings since I have bought them. Every time I have put them on, something was ‘off’ about them, until I have figured out that they were too long for my face, so a bit of scissors action and now they fit just fine.
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.
