Hi Guys, welcome back ! Whoever said pinstripes are only for the work place? Even though this pattern leans toward a formal or business look I have managed to work it in the opposite direction. Fashion is all about having fun with how you look. The crop has diffused the serious look of the pinstripped pants and showing some ankle by rolling up the hem of my pants suggests that I’m certainly not about to delve into a work day. You would also notice that I have sort of clashed horizontal with vertical stripes… that’s the ‘fun’ in fashion I was speaking about. Always feel free to play about with patterns, related or unrelated, you don’t have to limit yourself.
It goes without saying that coats/jackets are the new scarves. You willl not find me walking the streets without one of these. They are today’s ultimate accessories. Drape it on whether you need it or not…lol! The reason I say this is because it sort of has a way of bringing out the class in whatever outfit you have on, it keeps you warm and cozy and it affords you the option to turn a casual look into a formal or respectable look in less than half a second. Now with all these benefits why would you want to go anywhere without them. Without my coat on this outfit I could easily pass for someone going for a casual meal or a movie with friends etc, but with the jacket on I could comfortably switch from the simple casual look to a look suitable for just about any event formal or not.
I’ll stop with my rambling already and let you get on to the outfit. Thanks a lot for stopping by and hope you do come back…. X
