Broken Rules

Rules are made to be broken, right? At least or particularly in fashion. I often discuss what to wear according to your body type. The common wisdom is to avoid oversized or maxi clothes if you are petite. Miroslava Duma (known for being very petite) still looks fabulous even in the longest coat. Thus, I am encouraged to experiment with leather pants which, according to the rule again, better suit fabulously long-legged model types. Indeed, there are outfits that make you look more attractive (especially to guys), eg. an ultra-mini-close-to-body vs. a maxi-long-sleeve-no-cleavage dress. But we modern active girls would rather reserve these gowns for parties and Sundays. With gray is the new black, I tucked in a gray tee and a gray oversized H&M coat.

Wearing: H&M coat / Zara top / La Redoute leather pants / 3.1 Phillip Lim bag / Converse shoes / Avinas Jewelry bracelet & rings / Thomas Sabo necklaces

    Love the contrast of the leather pants and the wool coat…and the shoes make a great statement. This outfit is perfect! The photos are divine. What I especially love about this outfit is that it could be worn in Canada.

    Two thumbs up, eh?
