This past weekend the temperatures went down again. Which made me grab a bit more layers than the usual. On Saturday I spent the whole day home, only going for walks with Poppy, so my outfit consisted in a comfy, casual sweatpants-sweatshirt combo. On Sunday, I went for a quick brunch with my husband and played it up a bit. Even though it was a bit warmer, I still brought all the layers I could think of. And tried to get the focus on my frilled blouse.
One of the top five trends seen all over fashion month was the detailed, ruffled and frilled blouses. I’ve never been too much of a detailed blouse myself, but was sold by this one immediately. The only question was, how to wear it without looking like a victorian piece?
I rarely go for over-feminine outfits and that’s a trait I’ve established early on.
This frilled blouse is way too feminine for me, so the only way I knew I wanted to wear it was with sneakers. The ultimate cool-girl call. Then came the mom jeans. Which give it even a more relaxed feel. Then I thought, I might be getting too relaxed, so over the frilled blouse, I wore a green jacket that might be associated with our grannies. Which I utterly love! Because it was cold, I had to top if off with my favorite camel coat.
It’s a game of proportions and layering. Like I said before, the trick is finding a balance between the pieces and allowing each and every one to breath and speak for itself. That’s what makes this, the ultimate fall outfit.
