Inspired by the current trend for geometric and artistic prints, as seen at Chanel, Celine, Giorgio Armani and others, I decided to pull out my favourite Miu Miu skirt from 10+ years ago (see style.com’s inspiration photos of the pop art trend here). If you choose one of the louder and more colourful prints in this trend, your look can become very eye-catching, in particular if you go for a dress, coat or long skirt. If you prefer a more quiet and classic look, choose a top that peeks out under a cardigan, a scarf tied around your neck or a mini skirt like me.
I don’t have many artistic prints in my closet, but I wouldn’t mind owning a couple of the more classic pieces that can easily be matched with my current wardrobe while also be appropriate to wear for the next few seasons. I’m leaning towards a graphic white and black top from Celine (here), or possibly the Zara copycat print in a skirt, seen here.
For now, my Miu Miu skirt will do. This skirt is a good length for us tall girls – it covers my bum by a good margin while still showing off what I consider to be my best asset, my legs.
Since the skirt hits me on the hips and doesn’t automatically create a waistline, I added a belt on top of my cardigan to give me more shape.
To brave the outdoors, I added my much loved Reiss coat and Ray-Ban sunglasses. Yes, we had sunshine yesterday, but today it’s back to rain, rain and more rain for the forseeable future, so I’m going to be all bundled up for five degrees celsius in my next few outfit posts.
