While spring/summer 2014 fashions are appearing in my inbox almost daily now, the weather forecasts indicate that we’ll still have to put up with the chill of winter for a bit longer.
One of the things I love about winter is layering knitwear. That means woolen short sleeve tops, jumpers and cardigans – and not to mention accessories like scarves! So how to layer without looking (and feeling!) like the Michelin man? The key, I think, is to make sure that the overall silhouette is still chic.
Capes and kimonos
Capes and kimonos are wonderful because they create a stylish shape, regardless of how many layers you are wearing or may be carrying!
I’m wearing a Thurley cardigan (similar by Thurley is now on sale and pinned here) | mustard yellow cardigan from Again Recycle | tshirt by Iris & Ink | necklace I assembled using a chain from the old Lovisa and rhinestone watch from a flea market in Berlin | belt from Ted Baker | skirt from Vivienne Westwood | clutch is Longchamp | stockings from my local supermarket and trusty ankle boots from Ziera.
What I think I look like when I leave the house
Do you have an image in mind when you get dressed? Say a look that you are trying to achieve… or a celebrity you are emulating?
Whenever I wear a cape or kimono, I like to think that I look like this Garance Dore illustration...!
