When you find your colour you know about it. It could be a totally subtle slight shift from all black everything to a slightly cooler navy, but everyone reacts to you as though you’ve just come back from a fortnight on a Caribbean beach.
I feel like this about khaki – whether it’s a classic army jacket or a sludgy green knit, it makes me feel as though my skin looks good and that I look pulled together – even if I’m feeling far from it.
This autumn it’s everywhere.
Now, these trousers. You might not even have noticed them in store, but they are AMAZING! They’re comfortable, flattering and easy to wear – meaning you could dress them down like I have with trainers just as easily as you could by wearing with heels. There’s also a fabulous double breasted jacket to match – if you fancied doing the whole velvet revolution thing for party season.
I’m also wearing their mix-shapes earrings, which I haven’t stopped wearing since I got them. They’re so cool, adding a bit of edge to a simple outfit. And at less than ten pounds, they’re worth the investment.
I’ve teamed with a matching khaki v-neck from Iris Fashion and a pop of colour with this bag from Boden.
Head to toe shades work really well if you mix different textures – plus this is such a comfortable outfit!
