COS white T-shirts selection

A white t-shirt is what they call a “must have”, always. I reckon one ought to have at least 3, in one’s wardrobe, at any time, perhaps more during summer.  So, if you are missing any, here is a great selection from COS:

You absolutely must look at the details on them, their cut and their fabric. Or not, otherwise you will order them all!!

A white t-shirt will tone down a trousers suit:

a skirt look, a little more casual:

Will make your old jeans very chic:

your chinos cool and more elegant:

and your wide leg trousers even chicer:


Purple and yellow

I don’t like purple. I don’t like yellow either. I never thought I would say this, but I think purple and yellow together are rather cool. In small doses. Not too often. You also need to tread very carefully, one small mistake and you look terrible rather than chic!

This is the pic which made me change my mind:

I am not sure about the camisole, it looks a little too sexy for my liking. Here’s at random some clothes and accessories in the two colours:

And here are a few ideas of how to put them together:

I would wear purple for the top, just because yellow near your face is way too difficult. This way, it doesn’t matter whether your blond or dark haired and whether you have a sun tan (which, btw, if it’s too dark, isn’t nice either with yellow). Another matter is naturally dark skin, which tends to look fabulous whenever. Having said that, I’d still put purple at the top).


Spring is coming…

I never thought I would fancy a pair of light coloured shoes but, having seen these cute Zara Derby cream ones, I think I am going to have them!!


The price is right, I can just wear them for a season or two, without feeling guilty. They have such a short season, maybe a couple of months and they will be too heavy to wear, not much point in spending a lot.

I can already see them with this classic pleated navy skirt by Arket:

And you? What have you got your eyes on for the Spring?
