Sports luxe has now been around for the last decade in full force. Embellishment has also upped its ante this last year in all forms of embroidery, brocade, twinkling crystals and iridescent pearls. The Spring-Summer runways of 2018 were also decked in regal meets sports at Louis Vuitton. Any thoughts on sporty eveningwear ala Stella McCartney? Anyhoo, what a dream that this came together in the form of this little black pearly hoodie for me.
The Return of the Culotte
I couldn’t resist making a return of that lounge-friendly, wool jagged hemmed, culotte that lost its way in the black abyss of my wardrobe. A certain someone said that fashion always comes full circle, good news for fashion hoarders (myself included much to the horror of Mr Nomad).
Designers have made the habit of waiting for a few decades before rehashing the same silhouettes and trends so hang on to those mid-calf skimming babies. They are to me, a half-way skirt for tomboys with a care-free attitude. Think Lauren Hutton in New York.
For a more polished look pair them with a strappy-heel. Though effortless does it too with laid-back loafers or some furry slippers for Saturday Brunch with the girls.
If you follow me on Instagram you’ve probably seen me style this Jadior clutch to death. It is, truly such a versatile piece and my favourite bag of the moment (see it styled differently Here and Here). Finally, Finishing off the look with a little bit of rebellion was chunky skull ring By Alexander Mcqueen.
