Seasonal Styling

I love playing with the world of fashion and as part of this playfulness,  I like to set style projects for myself – much like a kid with a school project, I create fashion/style projects, except unlike a kid at school, this is actually fun and I am choosing to do it!

The most recent project I set for myself was to style one gorgeous item for the four different seasons, challenging the ability to match one item with other looks appropriate for the weather. I like the idea of maintaining a sense of style and self throughout the seasons combined with a willingness to try new things, be it a colour, pattern or line. And combining this with an unlimited wardrobe added to the joy of the project.

Seasonal Styling

I decided I wanted to style a skirt as I don’t really wear skirts that often, making the project more interesting, but also because has a skirt has the most versatility when it comes to the changing seasons.

After a bit of a hunt around on a few of my favourite websites (Net-A-Porter, Lyst, The Outnet, Farfetch to name but a few) I chose this GORGEOUS Erdem Ez pleated georgette skirt. I love the way the black is the main colour which is perfect for an Autumn/Winter skirt but I also love the prettiness of the flowers to bring a bit of colour into a Spring/Summer look. The pleats give it a luxe element while the high waist enhances the femininity – a look I am particularly loving after my first Mad Men series.

Continuing with the femininity, for the Summer and Autumn looks, I chose pieces that had a lace feature and for Autumn a blouse that was soft and floaty. Although the Winter look is predominantly black, the cinched belted waist of this stunning Burberry Prorsum coat ensures the look has a girly feel.

I adore playing with fashion, be it through styling, exploring, trying on or imagining and having a access to the wardrobes of the world adds such a delicious element to this playtime.
