E’s lookbook ‘Shorts a’la Chanel’

Lookbook:

Earrings: Primark

Jumper: H&M

Bracelets unknown

Shorts: Primark

Boots: Primark

A'la Chanel shorts with pearl buttons worn with a white high neck, cropped jumper, pearl earrings and pearl bracelets

Perfect a’la Chanel shorts.

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.

Coat: Primark

Blazer: Primark

T-shirt: Brookhaven

Trousers: Primark

Trainers: Topshop

A white, puffer coat worn with an intense pink trouser suit, monochromatic sneak print trainers and monochromatic T-shirt.

Styling pink trouser suit.

I have already done this colour combination in the past. But since I want to get as much wear as possible from my favourite clothes I want to give those trousers another spin. While purchasing the pants I could get a matching blazer. But the cut and the quality were questionable so I have opted out. And imagine that, about a month later I have found in a charity shop a blazer in a matching colour in a more flattering cut. Now I have a trouser suit. To give it casual feel I have paired it with trainers. Not plain but monochromatic sneak print. And to replicate the monochromatic feel I have chosen black and white, street vibe, basketball T-shirt.

Lookbook:

Jacket: Primark

Skirt: Primark

Boots: Aldo

A white, pleated faux leather skirt worn with a short, black faux leather jacket and black over the knee, faux leather boots.

Wearing a white skirt on a rainy day is asking for trouble unless it is a faux leather pleated skirt, that any dirty water can be just wiped off it. I have paired it obviously with another faux leather garment- short, black jacket and of course faux leather black boots. A monochromatic look for a rainy day.

This is becoming repetitive but I like white trousers in spring. In summer it’s generally too hot to wear trousers but in spring, especially after months of rain, it’s like like fresh air not having to wear dark colours. I have worn the top recently, but this time with a statement necklace unknown origins.

Lookbook:

Coat unknown

Polo-neck unknown

Top: Zara

Trousers: Monsoon

Brogues: Deichmann

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.

I have got this jacket when it was still hot outside. It looks cute, but warm it is not. Fortunately, the weather is not too cold. All grey outfit with a mustard-yellow bag because why not!

Tempted to wear white despite all the rain that we are getting. A polo-neck is transforming this summer blouse into a more weather-appropriate outfit while trainers with a thicker sole insulate feet from the cold ground.
