Do you ever make fashion combos that you know are just perfect? I do. Of course there are the basic, straight forward pairings of jeans and a t-shirt or a sweater, but the fun part about fashion is those more out there combos that you can make. I certainly like to have some fun with my clothes and sometimes that means I look wacky, but at other times I create outfits that are keepers. These are 5 of my favorites.
1.) Pastel neons
I wore this first outfit in one of my first ever lookbooks. So if you would like to see this on, you can see that here. I can’t remember how this outfit came about because all the pieces were bought at separate times. I just threw it one some day and it has been a staple in my wardrobe. The peach neon sweater is H&M, as is the mint green sleeveless blouse. The shoes are Underground creepers which I got from Urban Outfitters. The pastel tie dye, almost galaxy feel leggings are from River Island.
2.) Casual stripes
A jeans & t-shirt combo is a classic, but I love to always think it through a little bit more. I don’t always, but if I want to create an outfit that looks like I am not trying too hard, I will wear this black jeans and baggy stripy top combo. Paired with black converse that are completely battered, adds to the casualness of the look. But to still add a bit of color and sophistication back in, I usually wear this with a faux red coral necklace. Jeans are Topshop Jamie jeans. The top is from H&M a few years ago. I got the necklace from a friend.
3.) Fall time prep
In general, I like wearing preppy looks. I like a closely buttoned up shirt, tucked into a skirt, combined with a pair of manly brogues. It is the perfect blend of masculine and feminine pieces that just works for me. It also makes for a nice retro vibe. Sheer pale yellow blouse and forest green flared out skirt are both from Asos. The brogues are from Ebay.
4.) Tough in burgundy
Another outfit that I wore before in a blog, is this burgundy dress/ beige & faux leather blazer combo. I wore it with a different pair of shoes, though. And that is one reason why I like this look: just by changing up the shoes, you can create a slightly different look. Yet, with this combo, I always like to opt for a tough looking shoe. Be it biker boots or studded brogues, this look calls for a bit of an edge. Dress & blazer: H&M. The studded brogues are from Zara.
5.) Dressed up reds
Red is one of my favorite colors to wear. My favorite fashion item to wear in this gorgeous color? A dress of course! This dress is a sturdy material skater dress with seams along the bodice that flare out into pleats around your waistline. It is super flattering and I like pairing it with a chunky necklace, cut out boots and a fluffy black cardigan. Of course you can also wear this with a pair of heels to keep things more classy. Dress & cardigan are both from H&M. The necklace is from Primark, the boots are from New Look.
