Layers & horns

Tall girl's fashion // Layers and horns

I think it is a lot harder to dress creatively for winter than summer, as at this time of year you need so many layers to stay warm. Trousers all need to be long, skirts can only be worn with ridiculously thick tights (which only come in black) and my warmest layering pieces are long sleeved t-shirts, which are not too classy. To top that, most winter clothing comes in safe and neutral colours like grey, black and navy. While I have acquired some brightly coloured wool coats through the years, I need to work on brightening my shirt and sweater selection for the colder month, so I can bring some colour into these cold and dark days. Luckily, this girl thrives on a good challenge, especially when it involves shopping.

In today’s outfit I decided to live a bit on the edge and go with cropped trousers — gasp! — as I was working from home and could crank up the heating. Being a tall woman, cropped trousers — intentionally so or not — are my best friend, and I miss wearing them in the winter months. I went with some good ol’ layering up on top, with a light wool top over my silk blouse, and luckily the ensemble managed to keep me warm. The only issue was with my trousers.

Strangely enough, they seem to have shrunk a size while they have been resting in my closet since December… I’m hard at work making them fit again, though, and only yesterday , I went for a run. Someone in the sports world should warn you that running with crampons in the loose snow is exhausting. Absolutely fire-in-your-chest exhausting. I was the direct opposite of the image that the people on the crampon box portray, all happy and bouncy… More tired and near-death, really.
