Hey boys and girls, finally some new material!! Let’s not waste anytime and just get straight to it. With the whether being dull over the past few weeks here is something to brighten up your day quite literally. So as I’m sure you all know it is officially Spring. When we think of Spring the first thing that comes to mind is the beginning of warmer days and along with that the blossoming plant life bringing vibrant colours back into our lives. We often associate the colour green with growth and good health so there’s no better way to begin Spring than with this outfit.
You can never wear to much green, well in my eyes anyway. I live for anything green! I also love a good co-ord so when I saw this it was an “ignore the price, you’re buying it anyway” kind of situation and boy I have not regretted it one single bit. I don’t usually buy tracksuits and here is where I sound like a total snob, I just find them so chavy but for this one I made an exception. It differs from a typical tracksuit as it has more of a tailored, premium feel with the trousers being a cropped straight leg. Track bottoms are usually baggier and have no shape but these joggers have just the right amount. To top it off the top half of the co-ord comes in jacket form. If it was a hoodie it might have been a different story, one in which I wouldn’t have spent my money. With such a bold colour, having the jacket creates a perfect balance and enables the colours to be seperated making the green a little more subtle. A little. So to keep this outfit crisp I paired the co-ord with a black roll neck creating a lovely contrast against the green and still keeping the overall look premium. With my hair I decided to slick it back with a middle parting into a bun to not only highlight the detail of the roll neck but to also enhance the idea of this clean look. Oh, and can we just look at that jawline! It’s all in the details.
Did you see the ribbon detail? If the green is not enough, throw in a side stripe and call it a party. I’m all about making things more fun. The stripe just adds that finish touch to the set. To make things even more exciting I accessorized with this gorgeous industrial belt by OffWhite. I couldn’t help myself. The yellow sits so well with the green and they just compliment each other so beautifully. With that said I tie in other elements such as my Dr. Marten BEX shoe, the newest addition to my shoe collection, with yellow stitching. I also matched my white socks with the white panel in the co-ord to brighten up the outfit a smidge. As the weather is still a bit chilly I layered up with this Lux wool blend coat adding more freshness with it’s length. This coat and my amazing sunglasses I look like I should I be stepping out of The Matrix. It’s a look. Last of all, to carry all of my many essentials I used my premium leather cross body bag whereas for my problems I just have the ones under my eyes. What do you think?
