This Sunday I’m borrowing my look straight from the Autumn/Winter 2017/18 runway. From Vicotria Beckham, to be exact. Experimenting and styling a simple striped sweater and a midi skirt in an entirely different way for me. In a way that I always thought of a fashion faux fax. So what changed my mind to try this trend now?
I always thought to wear a sweater over a skirt was unflattering. Especially when wearing that thick knighted sweater over the A-style midi skirt. In fact, I would never wear this two together in a first place. I would give it a go to a nice thin pullover, preferably with a turtleneck, and a skirt. But not to any other long knitwear. Perhaps, because my grandmother likes to wear her skirts this way. And to put it short, this outfit looks hideous on her.
However, after seeing this style on late Beckham’s fashion show, I decided to try this trend. After all, it’s better to experiment with and adopt this style before it becomes the “it trend” of the season. And this is my weekend style I write about. So here I’m walking around Ljubljana and eating a cake wearing my striped sweater tucked into my wide midi black skirt. My feelings about this look? Honestly, I think I will give it a go the next season. Only with a straight midi skirt. When pleated, even better.
BRUNCH DATE OUTFIT
This outfit that I’m wearing today is more or less appropriate only for a brunch date. Not that I didn’t have any today. In fact, I spend most of my Sunday brunching. Again. And I said I will take it easy on brunching for a next few weeks after that four hours long brunch I had last Sunday in Paris. By the way, in case you have missed what I wore to my Parisian brunch, check here.
MY WEEKEND STYLE
Back to the present and this brunch date outfit that I’m wearing today. As you can see, I went for a black and white outfit with a nice pop of fashionable pink. In fact, I brought to life so many fashion trends in this outfit.
Starting with the stripes, of course. You could see me wearing this striped sweater many times before on Instagram. Nevertheless, I feel there are so many different ways left for me to style this striped black and white piece of clothing.
I wore this striped sweater over the A-stye black midi skirt. As said, a straight midi would be a better choice. Next time then.
I finish my outfit with the white shoes and a white mini bag. You know, it’s all about the white accessories this season. White shoes and white bags, in particularly. Best when worn together. Seems like we know what we are spending the money from our next paycheck on, right?
Finally, I put on some bright pink gloves and ivory coat.
