Today’s outfit was worn on Day 1 of Moteuka (Oslo Fashion Week). The day started out quite cold, so I added a blazer to stay warm. This worked until I got on the bus, where I was about to have a heat stroke. The blazer came off and added a nice shot of colour hanging over my handbag for the remainder of the day. Without this punch of colour, I think the outfit would have been quite bland.
I’ve worn these white cropper trousers on the blog before, last worn at my friend’s birthday party with a white top and black wedges and previously with a black emboidered top and denim jacket. The pleated detailing at the waist and the thick scuba-like fabric quickly made them one of my favourite pairs. Add the fact that they were extremely affordable and white trousers go with everything, and Gina Tricot had a new loyal customer. I used to think that Gina Tricot‘s fast fashion was too cheap to be any good and that they only catered to teenageers, but I’m happy to admit I was wrong!
Since the pleating makes the trousers quite baggy, I chose a short, slightly tight top and a tailored jacket. I’d have loved to add heels as well, but it was just not practical for all the walking that I was doing. Sometimes practicality has to win, right?
Yesterday, I did a raid and shot all the outfits I’ve worn in the past week or so, so now you’ve got lots to look forward to. I know that outfit posts are your favourites and I aim to please! After all, we’ve had plenty of fashion shows and designer talks on the blog lately, so it’s time to get back to basics. The weather is just gorgeous here in Oslo at the moment, so it’s all summery outfits with cropped trousers, dresses and shorts. I wish summer would last forever!
If you have a specific (tall or short girl) style questions or would like ideas on how to style a specific garment, I’d love to help! No matter how obscure the garment, chances are that I actually own something similar in my huge wardrobe. I’ve already been asked for more ways to style flared jeans for autumn and outfits will be posted once the weather has cooled down.
Have a great Friday!
