Classic match

I know I shouldn’t be looking at winter clothes yet but I love them so much more than the summer ones….

So, here’s a “match made in heaven”, cashmere cardigan, jeans and loafers, mid-heel loafers!!

Cashmere cardigan + jeans light blue + thin necklace + mid-heel loafers

The cardigan is Massimo Dutti (here). They have a new cashmere collection out with the usual suspects. I am sure you are bound to have a pair of jeans and a necklace similar the ones in the picture. Now, the shoes. I would just about kill to have those Gucci gorgeous loafers, but I can’t… either kill or have them!

Here are a few alternatives:

I really quite like the “The seller” leather pair…

Cold shoulder

Just the one. This off the shoulders trend isn’t going away, might as well embrace it! I am obviously joking, do it only if you like it. I am a firm believer a girl shouldn’t follow all trends, just the ones one fancies or can actually wear (due to personal shape).

I do think this one is cute, not worth investing too much, but cute nevertheless. I also think it needs to be done with a reasonable amount of taste, otherwise one risks falling into “trash” territory….

The icon for this kind of top is of course Brigitte Bardot,original but I have never been a fan of “girly girls”, I tend much more for androgynous….I don’t mind a little femininity though here and there. You know those women who, even if wearing something sexy or frilly don’t look overwhelmingly feminine ? (or “tarty” some of the time, again, due to body shape too).

 

I find this TOPSHOP blouse quite flamboyant yet tasteful. Perfect match with jeans but also great with a pair of soft tailored trousers or a midi skirt, I would certainly wear this top:

I would lose the ’80’s haircut though!!
