Come in please your time is now!
Having completed the colour me beautiful styling questionnaire I discovered to my relief that I was a ‘mish-mash’ of style personalities. Why to my relief?? Well, I am, by nature a little non-conformist and having lived with myself for many, many years I know that I am never the same two days running. I skip between wanting to wear 1940 ‘spy style’ classics to desiring intricate lace detailing and then jumping full length into a coquettish pixie/tomboy look. Phew, it is hard shopping for me, but exciting nevertheless. Any way, to get to the point, I have to say I was bowled over by Chloe Spring/Summer 2013 range. It seemed to tick all my boxes whilst being slanted heavily towards modern day romance. See what you think……
I think these cropped trousers are feminine and romantic but without restriction; they inspire a natural, free moving femininity. Take away the heels and you can create an easy going ‘pixie’ look.
This is a truly ‘girlie’ skirt but the elegant edge is counteracted by the white shorts underneath. Need to sprint quickly (for some reason)? Whip off the heels and away you go. I absolutely love it!
On a more somber note, you could head into work in either of these outfits. Pleated, cropped trousers and little red patent flat shoes – so comfortable.
Romantic – yes. But so relaxed and easy to wear. Fluffy but casual.
On a more down to earth note – are you thinking “Oh no! I need to be 20 something to do this!”
I agree that maybe I would not wear the little flower skirt ( I may just hang it in the wardrobe and look at it!) but certainly every other piece is infinitely wearable, the pleated cropped trousers, good for a variety of body shapes whether worn with heels or flats; the loose, elegant striped blouse, good for gentle round shapes, the raglan sleeves working a treat for inverted triangles; and the loose sheer flower blouse gives body to lean columns when worn over a pretty camisole..
