Avoid a boring look by using mixed structures
Who says boring is a bad thing? When it comes to fashion I like boring, I like plain and I like simplistic. I’m not always in the mood for bright colors and bold prints and lately I’ve been wearing lots of black. With different structures you can change the atmosphere a little. This outfit is about plain items, combined together to uplift each other. Besides lots of black I’ve also got this preppy vibe going on lately.
There is something I love about dressing up like a nerd. But.. always in my style, with a little casual twist. I absolutely love the color of this biker jacket! It’s grey faux leather with a little texture in it. The zippers and the stepped areas make the jacket a lot more casual. The skirt is a black denim which turned optically grey because of the washing and goes perfectly with this look. To add some freshness to the look I’m wearing a white cotton blouse, with frill across the topside.
Finally you get to see my new glasses from Polette. Did you read my previous blog about my hunt for a new pair of glasses? I’m so happy with these, do you like them on me? Have worn them almost every day so far. A little extra touch to nerd-ness. Funny how such a detail can change your appearance. It’s only since I’m back to wearing my glasses regularly that I’ve realised how much I’ve missed the extra help.
The Elvi jacket is a size EU48 and can be worn like a fall jacket since it’s lined, though I just wear it as a jacket. The skirt and boots are from primark. The skirt is a UK20 and has a zipper closure at the front only. This handbag you’ve seen before on my other outfits, still not regretting buying this one! The blouse has no sleeves, this way I can shop at the regular H&M collection. It’s a size 46 and I’m wearing it tucked in.
