Fashion should be fun. And the colour is not reserved only for summer. When I saw this jumpsuit in a charity shop it screamed to me: summer, but to make the most of your wardrobe it’s good to try to make summer clothes work in different seasons to. This is my attempt to make it work in early spring. The jewel colours are perfect for this time of year. And since I already have plenty of colour why not to throw a bit of sparkle too, for good measures, it’s good not to play it safe sometimes, after all, it’s only clothes.
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.
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 seen this combination of pink and emerald green somewhere and decided to wear it in an outfit. I knew I had a jumper in emerald but nothing else and then I have remembered the peacock earrings that haven’t been out since early 2000, I’m still surprised that they have not disintegrated and they definetely make a statement.
I wanted to wear black trousers with white trainers, so to tie up the whole outfit I have replicated the same colours on the top with a black hooded jumper and a white polo-neck. I have also added a vintage brooch and a black shopper.
Nothing beats a good trainer when you need to do errands all-day. Going with the theme- a sporty top and a polo-neck because it is still cold and a leather jacket because it’s windy and a big shopper to fit everything in. Sorted.
Have you ever build a whole outfit around a bag just because you can’t be asked to move your stuff to another one, I just did. The bag is red so I needed another red thing and there it is an old favourite, an Adidas top with a very unusual cut that is fitted and flattering. White polo-neck to match the stipes and army green bottom. Oatmeal coat to make it feel lighter.
