We always miss what we don’t have. And now, when it looks like winter is saying goodbye until next year, I’m already starting to miss it. So a moment before we’ll start talking about vacations, swimsuits and the beach, I want to make good use of the last grey days for a look that soon will turn nostalgic.
The combination here is based on my favorite contrasts permissible by the transitional season and the cooler weather. The essence of the look is the contrast of the thick, fuzzy top and the skinny, almost bare legs. It doesn’t matter if you choose a big cardigan like I did, a turtleneck or half a turtleneck, the most important factor is the wooly fabric – perfect for a cuddle
What you choose to wear under the sweater is less important, as long as it’s mini! Shorts with a t-shirt or a mini skirt, or even a gentle dress. In this look, the star is the volume of the knit. I already mentioned here how much I like black tights with winter items, and these here, with a distinct pattern, add a dimension thanks to their feminine allure. Combined with an evening dress they would be dramatic and overtly sexy, but the cardigan cools things off and balances the look. And to inject some interest, I chose these studded Valentino boots, but slightly less decorated booties would work too.
The jewelry is an inseparable part of this look, and these urban beauties by Michal Ben Ami work well here. The mix of black leather with gold, and the strong geometry of the earrings give an interesting contrast to the softness of the sweater and the pattern on the tights, and we haven’t event mentioned the wink to the studs on the boots
It’s all about balance in life, isn’t it?
