I’m actually quite a dress lover and own more than a few gorgeous pieces of fabric, but I can’t seem to wear enough of them. When doing so I easily feel over dressed, even if a more “casual” outfit technically takes more time and energy to compose.
This dress in particular is very easy to wear though. The colour and cuts makes it perfect for any day, like yesterday for example. I woke up, had no energy nor inspiration (I mean, it was like 5:45 in the morning?) and it just hung there in the wardrobe like a mirage. The dress is from GinaTricot, a Scandinavian fashion chain (you can find their website here), where I bought it earlier this fall. I wear it to school now and then but would really like to wear it more often, as with my other dresses… Well, one can’t be born into everything, some things has to be thought. Are you wearing dresses often?
Very often when I’m standing in front of my closet I tend to choose pretty basic colours. There is nothing wrong with that. It’s easy and always turns out stylish. But since it can get a little dull I like to spice these outfits up using my makeup, sometimes with eyeshadow but most often with a bright, bold lip. I recall writing this in my last post and I do apologise for being repetitive but it’s just such an easy and fun way to add a little twist to your outfit!
Aside from the red lip, I’ve also mixed a lot of different materials to make something happen in this particular outfit. I have leather (both shiny and none-shiny ;)), wool, som kind of sheer blouse material (?) and jean. In addition my patterned scarf obviously makes it all a whole lot more interesting… My point is however that it’s not necessarily hard to take an outfit to the next level. It’s all in the details. Sometimes, a tiny bracelet is enough to get that on fleek look. Don’t you think? 🙂

Some days are simply not ment for creativity. At least not when it comes to putting together the perfect outfit. I find that these days occur more often during fall and winter. Luckily, I have found the perfect formula of garments for these days:
Knitted Sweater + Leather Pants + Bold Lip
Mark my words: This combination can not go wrong. It’s the perfect mix of casual and chic which can’t end in anything but a fashionable outfit! It’s like made for dull and lazy mornings! Take a look for yourself. This outfit took me about three minutes to compose and only consists of three vital components: A knitted sweater, a pair of leather pants and a bold lip. Easy peasy!
