Lately, I haven’t paid much attention to seasonal trends. In times past I would’ve had at least three posts about 2018 spring trends by now. Which colors are in or out. What fabrics are current. What to stop wearing. Which designers are on the cutting edge, etc… Instead I’ve been more focused on getting back to my own “happy place” of style. This means wearing what I want and trying new combinations. Today’s combo features a cropped copper jacket and striped track pants.
I’ve had this jacket for years. It sits in the back of my closet and rarely sees the light of day. Which is odd considering my love for all things metallic or sequined. If I’m being honest I just plain forget about the darn thing. It’s not until I’m cleaning out my closet that I stumble upon this jacket and think, “Oh yeah! I should wear this”. Now that it’s back in my sights I’ll definitely keep it in rotation. Maybe throw it over a cocktail dress for date night, or wear it with denim. I’ll be sure to post future ensembles.
Although I haven’t been to H&M in months (thanks to that whole ‘monkey in the jungle’ fiasco) I saw these striped track pants on my last visit. As soon as I saw the wide leg and high waist I squealed. Not to mention the hint of pastel purple and copper in the stripe itself. Sure you can barely see it, but against the jacket it works! It was the glittery fabric that sealed the deal for me; it adds the right amount of extra. So after years of collecting dust in my closet this jacket finally sees the sun. I paused for a moment before shooting this look thinking: Would this be more appropriate for evening wear? Maybe. But who cares?!
