London-style…shortalls

As per ushe, I was perusing through my English friend Mark’s Facebook albums and came across this photo. Like I mentioned in my last post, I have become fixated on shortalls and have found myself fantasizing about them, and all the different ways they could be worn. Shown here, this hip Londoner has chosen to opt for a more bohemian look for summer, however I would like to think these could also be paired with tights to be worn during the colder months. I love how she is casual with her look—not trying too hard—but is still put together and makes it her own. If you too, are loving this look, but are not quite sure which fit to buy or how to make sure you don’t end up looking like Donna Martin on 90210 circa 1990, I would suggest a loose fit. It is also important that they are not too long in the leg creating a strange capri pant look but also not too short or tight around the thigh so that they become bootie shorts. Check out this link: Yoox denim shortalls

For options regarding the differing seasons, try these two on for size:

For…

Summer pairings: White or black tank, one or two necklaces/thin chains, gladiator sandals, or cute woven caramel-colored flats.

And, for…

Winter pairings: Black tights, black puffy-sleeved top or more casual black V-neck short sleeve top,  a braided caramel leather belt, one long necklace/thin chain, booties, tan or brown lace-up oxfords, or if it is still relatively warmish out, say like a Fall temp, then switch it up and slip on the same woven flats mentioned above.

I must say, I love the look of black against caramel. It creates such a stimulating contrast.
