I think we can all agree that I have been delivering darker outfits for a while now, so it’s been about time that I deliver something brighter! I truly love this outfit, because it’s a mix of formal and sporty style. If you look at the top, we can agree that it has a sporty vibe. The skirt isn’t necessarily formal, either. Sure … It’s innocent and girly, but you can wear it to a family gathering just as you can wear it outside for a walk. The coat and the shoes have the ultimate formal vibe. High heels aren’t practical for a long walk, that’s a fact, but the colour lowers the formality a bit. Instead it makes it more fun and less serious. Also … These are a work of a French designer! Da-yum! My favorite thing is the fact that the top and the shoes match colour-wise. Given the fact that this outfit is a match of only two colours, this could easily get over-matchy, but I find beauty in not exaggerating with the colours.
What do you think of this outfit? Let me know in the comments! If you’d like to wear it and you find it too pricey, I advise you to find similiar items in the store for more affordable prices. You can also always ask your sewer to do something similiar, as a last resort.
Let’s start at the beginning! My favorite thing about this set is the elegance and softness behind it. I’ve taken a bit from that vibe by adding a backpack, that I know, but I felt it still fits with the outfit, because it isn’t as edgy/rough as some backpack are.
The coat is great! The shape can be a bit tricky, because it ususally takes away from the curves of a woman, but I feel like the skirt will highlight the curves enough, so at the end of the day, this just isn’t a shapeless outfit. The top is really beautiful! I love how the colour of the top and the colour of the high heels match, I think that’s a very nice detail. I also like the detail of the skirt (the shoe is hiding it a bit, but I think you can still see it clear enough). It’s just a small detail, but the small ones are always the ones that mean a lot in a simple outfit.

Hey guys! You know what we haven’t done in a while? A “Playing for styling” kind of a post! I miss messing around with a clothing that I like and styling it differently countless of times … I think that’s the true magic of fashion. Every little detail matters! And every little detail can bring you to a different kind of a style.
I’m still not sure whether you guys prefer the softer or the edgier side of me (I don’t know which one do I prefer, either, by the way), but let’s start with a softer version! I’ve instantly fallen in love with this top. I know it’s quite simple, but the zipper is an epic detail that brings a lot of edginess to the top. A small detail … that means a lot. Like I always say. The skirt is very simple. You have to take something away, so you can give something else … That’s why I went all in with the blouse and the high heels. These two items are incredibly important in this set, because they dictated the style of the outfit. They’re both very feminine. Sure, the skirt is quite feminine too, because it brings shape to the body, but it can be quite neutral when it comes to style, since it isn’t anything special. Anyway … The shoes and the blouse! I didn’t want to match the colours together, I think that would be too typical and boring, but they do have similiar shades, so they still fit together. All in all, I think this truly is quite soft.
Now on to my edgier side … Does this scream rock, or what?! When I picked the top and decided to style it, my original idea was to use the red skirt, but you won’t believe it … The set on the top was the first one that I created. I suppresed the original idea when I used the blouse and the shoes. But … I couldn’t just leave the top there. That’s why I created this as the second option. I love the fact that three colours are working together to create something stylish. Red and black are very edgy and more known as “sharp”, whereas the white brings in the innocence. I love the fact that the skirt has a split, I loooove the bag that connects everything together, I love the jacket and the shoes. I think I actually prefer this version … Man, it’s badass.
Which version do you prefer and why? Also, do you prefer “Playing with styling” kind of posts or “OOTD” ones? Let me know!
This is one of those outfits when I have went fully in. I truly experimented with the colours, but I can say I’m very satisfied with the result! The skirt and the top are not oh-so-colourful, but they give certain elegance to this creation. Because the top is so flowy, we have to be careful with adding coats. This particular one is constructed with a straight silhouette, so there’s always fear that the top won’t shine as much with it. But hey! When it gets a bit hotter, you can get rid of the coat and show off the top! I do love the colour of this coat, by the way. It’s colourful, but it’s still … Elegant. Gentle. The heels and the bag are the PEAK of the outfit, though. For me, at least. Here I’ve went all in with some bolder colours and I’ve taken away a bit from the elegance vibe. These two items lets you know it’s PARTY TIME!
I’ll admit I could have worked harder on this outfit and added more details, but on the other hand – the clothing is so special and cool on itself that I didn’t want to push it too hard. This top is probably one of my favorites, ever! I love the sporty vibe that it has, but there’s also an element of rock. I love the red details, the lines and the CHAOS! The red lines also connect beautifuly with the skirt’s little heart detail. I love the split on the skirt, as well, although you have to be careful with those. You can either pull them off or you can’t, it all depends. And in the end, I couldn’t have added any other heels than red. The outfit comes together for all of those little details and the colour. I truly like it!
The reason I ESPECIALLY love this outfit is the fact that the skirt and the top match together so beautifully. They’re both from Net-A-Porter, but I don’t think they were made from the same designer. The shape of the top isn’t my favorite, because I know it wouldn’t look particulary flattering to me personally, but I do love the lines and the colour that it contains. The skirt is probably my favorite item, for what reason? The fact that it looks sporty, yet formal. It’s a crazy combination that many don’t have the courage of using, so I truly appreciate this. I loooove the zipper! It’s such a small detail that doesn’t mean much, yet it’s cool and special. I love the little blue that is underneath the zipper, it’s another cool detail. And it’s also the reason I picked blue high heels. I thought that final decision would make the outfit looks good as a whole.
