Me Made May 2018: Week 3 – Silhouettes

Leave a comment

I’ve been concentrating on using various different silhouettes this week. The recommendation is to pair a voluminous top with skinny jeans or a fitted top with wide-leg trousers. Certainly, compared to the last two weeks, choosing different lengths and patterns, this particular focus has been much easier for me to apply to my wardrobe. I suspect that I already team my tops and bottoms with this in mind. So, here are my combinations:

Day 14: Purple-patterned Sorbetto top, Grey Vogue trousers

Day 15: Drape drape top, Dark blue Wolfie jeans, Petrol Jenna Cardigan

Day 16: Drape drape top, Dark blue Wolfie jeans, Petrol Jenna Cardigan

Day 17: Brown boho top, Beige Wolfie trousers

Day 18: Dark blue Wolfie jeans, Helicopter Jacket

Day 19: Gothic skirt, Helicopter Jacket

Day 20: Balloon top, Helicopter Jacket

On Day 19 I finally plucked up courage and managed to wear a striped top with a floral skirt. It felt like an odd combination for me, but actually in the photo it doesn’t look completely wacky – it even looks intentional!

Favourite Outfit:

My favourite is a combination I found last year. I love the Drape drape top teamed with the dark blue jeans! I even think the dark red is cool with the petrol Jenna cardigan. Here’s a better photo of that outfit (minus the cardigan), taken last year:

Early Takeaways:

  • I don’t want to speak too soon, but this year we’ve been having fantastic weather. Of course, I’ve been struck by how little summery clothing I have. I’m usually quite cautious about adding summer clothes to my wardrobe; some years in the UK I don’t get to wear these clothes and only wear then when I’m abroad on holiday. Plus, unusually I have had to think about packing for my holiday at the end of the month and making sure that all those summery clothes are not in the laundry.
