As much as I’d like it to be summer right now, it’s quite near impossible to move along seasons and although it’s getting warm in London, it’s not hot enough yet (in Greek temperature standards!) for cut-offs and breezy camisoles! So, in a summery mode, I’ve opted for silky, sea-blue slacks from Zara, turned up roughly twice or three times for an effortless feel. The exposed ankle elongates the leg. This cotton chunky knit sweater from Cos is (as always) oversized, soft and falls loosely, the sleeves fingertip-length. Love how easy it is to pair with anything. My cut-out boots from Office are essential to complete the look. A lot of people think navy and blue or black and blue don’t complement each other. I actually love the combination of navy blue and black – I think it’s super chic. (See my latest Instagram pic here.) A deeper, royal blue looks great with anything, too, from black to cream and even deep red. A swipe of red lipstick (as I’ve done) will do the trick but don’t be afraid to mix primary colours – those opposite each other on the colour wheel complement each other to perfection.
I have bought these slacks in five different colours (from vivid red to pastel pink and inky black); I think, worn with soft knits or loose blouses, it makes the perfect outfit for comfort. Ballet flats make the look more sweet while chunky boots give it an edge. They will also look great in summer, paired with embellished sandals. I have been overloaded with work and photoshoots lately so this is definitely a quick and easy look that you can all recreate for those super busy weeks when there isn’t enough time for extraordinary creativity and skimpy skirts!
It wasn’t sunny at all but I wore sunnies anyway. Ah, wishful thinking.
