Say it with stripes

Layers, stripes and other fashion staples

Every time I go shopping, I try to buy something colorful or patterned, but I just can’t! It looks silly on me and it’s just not me! But I found a compromise – a monochrome striped blouse.   

Print, colors or stripes – let’s be honest stripes are basically the most neutrals at this point. That’s why I included the trend in my winter staples. Whether they are going up, down, horizontal or diagonal – they are one of those basic trends that go with everything.

The weather seems to be undecided like me. One day I feel like I want winter and the other I dream of warm sunny spring weather. So I have to admit that like the temperature and weather differences. Today it’s getting very mild again.

But what to wear on a sunny winter day with spring temperatures, when you sweat in a coat but freeze in your cardigan?

Mild weather is all about layers! It took me a while to realize that, because I was afraid to layer my clothes for fear of looking bigger. Not true! Good thing I had overcome my insecurity and prejudice.

My idea: Same but different! Same color but different shades and materials.

My outfit of the day: Leather pants from Selected Femme, a monochrome blouse from H&M, a light black sweater from Free People and a Zara leather jacket.

Suited for the rock chic I added some 70’s influenced accessories. Urban Outfitters retro glasses, a fringe bag from Steve Madden and a black hat from H&M complete the minimalized winter look.
