A few days ago you may have read/seen a post featuring a full look from Jacques Vert’s fresh summer collection named Style Edit. The cream layered top, long pleated skirt and gold bag all creating a beautiful spring/summer look, one that could be styled as occasions wear or sport luxe.
I wanted to refer back to my new Jacques Vert pieces and just make a bloggy note of the usefullness and versatility of buying matching sets. There are endless possibilities when it comes to outfits. Something which may be considered going-out or posh garb can be translated in to casual or day wear, and vice versa.
A outfit that when put altogether creates a girly, elegant or etheral look, can be pulled about and used in conjunction with other pieces to create an edgy, tomboy or rock n roll look.
Case in point: This Jacques Vert layered top teamed with my faux leather trousers from Missguided.
The toughness of the leather trousers makes you perceive this top in a completely different way.You young things reading this blog may not instantly think of Jacques Vert when you plan your shopping trips, but as you can see this is the perfect top to team with skinny jeans and trousers, and ideal for creating this clean but edgy look. Monochrome is always a fantastic theme too, and allows your hair and make up to do the talking.
What you can’t see from these images is the lovely back detail of this top. It is separated into two so that you have wing style draping that billows in the wind. It’s really stunning. I think combining this top with simple items means the stunning cut, flattering layering, and feature back are even more showstopping.
One thing I’ve learned after decades of shopping is how important it is to have versatile pieces in your wardrobe. You want block colour tops that can be teamed with skirts or trousers, with the ability to take your from day to night. This one ticks all the boxes, with that added wow factor thanks to the back.
Being experimental with your fashion doesn’t have to always been trying wacky trends, combining clashing prints or going crazy with colour and cut. Sometimes it’s simply looking at what you have and using it in a new way.
