In print - in real life

The trench, ankle skinny black pants and ballet flats is one of my regular basic in between seasons outfit. I often rely on this combination when out of ideas (and time) for work and it's become over time one of my uniform.  

Instead of going for my usual black or striped top which I usually wear with this look, I decided to add a little twist and chose my new printed peplum top to shake things up a bit but kept the rest simple and neutral.

I really liked how the top lifted up this look, bringing a renewed interest to this basic - formed out of boredom- ensemble.



I was wearing / je portais:
Trench: Zara Basic - Top: Nash Prints It x Pimkie - pants/pantalon: Uniqlo - ballet flats/ballerines: Lanvin - sac/ bag: Céline

  1. Lovely top! I used to be a bit sceptical of those peplum tops but they can be quite flattering.

    1. Thanks Jessica!
      I shared your doubts on that cut as well, the flounce at the bottom seemed completely irrelevant. It's actually my first foray into peplum tops and must say it's growing on me.

  2. I recently discovered that I will wear prints frequently - if they are in blue and white. I always find that I tire of a print but blue-and-white ones seem to settle comfortably in my closet for the long term. I like how you've very seamlessly integrated that top into a very "city" outfit. I hate it when prints make me look like I'm on holiday, and I'm not.

    1. White and blue is such a beautiful timeless combination. I think that prints work best when their base color matches with clothes you already have. Otherwise it's often a case of wannabe artsy failure for me and I've learned my lesson so I stick with a certain palette I know will do well with my classic wardrobe.

  3. You look great! I think the top works beautifully with the more classic pieces.

    1. Thanks Eizhowa! That's why I chose to pick it, the cut and print don't conjure "exotic holidays dressing 101"! Haha!
