Do you have a favourite or a go-to look? An outfit you keep going back to?
My favourite look is dresses over pants. I have a passion for the 70s so of course I love this look. Every few seasons this look resurfaces with different cuts and lengths but the feeling is always the same for me.
I have several combinations of this look and I’m drawn to it for a couple of reasons. Comfort – the pants underneath the dress make this outfit very comfortable without all the trappings of hosiery. Unexpected – the pants worn with the dress make it very unique and I like being an original.
This look popped up in a couple of collections for SS2016. Chanel layered wide leg trousers over wide skirts and flowing dresses. Marni showed matching tunics and pants.
I bought this red, print tunic at Ross Dress for Less for $8 and I love wearing it over jeans with boots or wedges. For me it has a laid-back 70s vibe. For going out I have this black and white Banana Republic dress that I pair with narrow black trousers.
Here she is in a print-on-print combo of jeans and an off the shoulder dress. I love the neutral colours of this paper with the jeans. It reminds me of my red tunic and jeans. The paper is from Italy and wrapped a hand-made sketch book from Venice that I use when I’m writing or sketching for modacarta.
What’s your favourite or go-to look? As always I love to hear from you.
