Spring sunshine and milder temperatures… what a joy to have some sunny weather at last! This weekend marked the first day this year of being able to go out without a thick coat, scarf and three pairs of socks tucked inside boots (well it seemed that way at least). I may not have embraced spring colours – choosing a whole load of black and white with olive green instead – but it was great to bare just a bit of skin and soak up the sun.
We defied the rules of photographing outfits and took these in the direct sun – my olive green trousers seemed so much lighter and brighter out of the shade. Although the white of the two-tone sweater was somewhat blasted with light, it was just about saved by the thick ribbing which added a little detail to its brightness. Sometimes you gotta break the rules with photography (a bit like style I guess) to make it work for you.
One other trick I tried: the necklace hair tuck. After fooling quite a few of you (unintentionally!) the other week with my faux bob/sweater hair tuck, I simply left my hair inside my bobble necklace. I rather liked the slight hair mess it made, and it added a touch of femininity to an other masculine chic outfit.
Do you have any tricks to add a touch of femininity to a masculine outfit? Are you a fan of masculine chic like me? Do share in the comments!
