I really like mannish elements balanced with a little femininity. This is a variation of my Winter outfit here, here and for Spring here. This year I wanted to add colours and pattern to the mix. I would never have thought I’d be wearing purple, green, turquoise, red and purple together with a purple jumper bought years ago. Zara Girl bomber jacket and lilac cotton jumer, Hermès Grande Tenue shawl, Kelly and belt, Opening Ceremony brogues and new Zara black pants from here. I’m not terribly happy with how the pants fit partly because of the waistline misbehaving and wondering if it will be best to keep for Spring to wear with lighter tops and footwear? They just look like workwear pants – you know the functional uniform type, nothing to do with anything vaguely flattering.My vintage Jaeger camel coat makes things better but I always have to be careful not to overdose on the classics – they age me by at least a decade in an instant.Thanks for reading!
