The last few days are very fickly, and I find myself missing the sunshine. On days like this, it’s good to throw in pop of strong color – personally for me, it adds a summery feeling and improves the mood – and that’s why I choose this orange leather jacket.
I combined the jacket with a dark-blue maxi skirt. Usually, I’m not the biggest fan on long skirts, but this one gets a special treatment – thanks to the plisse fabric, and the generous slits, it’s airy and sexy despite the length, and creates a floating feeling when you walk.
A skirt like this and sneakers are the ultimate match, casual and fit for the everyday. The shoes are by Jeremy Scott for Adidas, and they were love at first sight for me – the orange balances the jacket and the wings add whimsy and amplify that floating effect. Another element to contradict the skirt’s lightness – a massive leather belt. The dark brown, thankfully, doesn’t stand out too much – there’s enough color as it is.
And finally, a white slick button-up shirt brings in a masculine twist against the skirt’s femininity. I matched this strong color palette with my favorite brown Chanel bag, sunglasses – and here I am, ready for our summery winter once more.
