Woolen Shorts, Army Coat

DSC01598edited

When living in London I got exposed to the notion of wearing shorts in the wintertime within a multi-layered outfit scenario. Once upon a nostalgic afternoon in New York City, I decided to bring my woolen winter shorts down from the shelves and back to existence. It was happening. They make their way, accompanied with a color-blocked sweater worn over a silky printed grey blouse. The ensemble combo encompassed a rich, playful wintery color pallet with elements of color blocking and prints. The silk blouse projected a structure sharp collar, which I really appreciated. I completed the look with a dab of purple lipstick and my trademark purple scarf.

On the very same day I came across a cute little vintage store on 9th street by the name of “Glasgow Vintage Co” where I encountered a beautifully structured Scottish Male military Jacket in a size small. Legendary. The olive structured affiliate enhanced the look and created the precise finishing touch – an attire resembling a vintage school boy uniform.

Combining complimentary separates in different textures and fabrics can help you create a striking custom-made evening look that you wont find on the rack. Experimentalism is the key to creating a high-impact look, as this darkly glamorous look illustrates.

Collar necklaces are an easy way to instantly transform the mood and tone of any outfit. This yellow and black baroque print top is given a Victorian-esque feel and an additional element of interest and with the detachable black and white lace collar accessory.

This theatrical maxi-length skirt is embellished with rhinestones and provides a goth contrast to the girlie top. The dark tulle functions as the focal point of this outfit, injecting additional drama into this ensemble.

A strong look such as this calls for minimal accessories as to not overpower the theme or make it seem contrived. The small black clutch and pointy black pumps are the perfect choices to top off this girlie-goth look; their colour ties in with the look’s dark undertones, and the clutch’s velvet material keeps things texturally interesting. Additionally, the dark lipstick is a great example of how you can include your makeup look in your sartorial endeavours.
