Last Friday we went to a philharmonic concert. I promise to review that later but today I will tell you about my outfit for the concert.
It is important to assess the audience beforehand as you don’t want to find yourselves completely overdressed in a crowd of pretty casual people. This is exactly what awaits you here. Nevertheless, you still want to have that flare of going out. A cocktail dress being out of question, I decided to go for some fresh colors and pulled my favorite pair of Joop! pants out of the closet. What followed felt like a brainstorm.
First, I found a suitable pair of shoes with 13 cm heels (those pants are LONG!). Then I chose a viscose top with a colorful flower pattern by tally_zhiv. Finally, I decided to finish the look with my silk coat. A couple of thoughts later, I turned to a jacket that disappeared in the depth of my closet almost three years ago right after its premiere. I thought that such bright color as fuchsia needed something white to support the vigor of the shade. Thus, I remembered that I sew a nice jacket that was designed by Karl Lagerfeld for Burda several years ago. A very intricate design performed in white seemed to be a wonderful companion to the simplistic cut of the colorful pants.
Let’s have a look at the details. The fabric is cotton waffle piqué. This fabric is ideally suited for the boule silhouette as it is hard enough to keep the slightly round form. Raglan sleeves are “attached” via little buttons to the shoulders.
The upper pocket is designed in the manner of classic tailored jackets.
The lower bound pockets are sewn into the prolongations of the front halves of the jacket that are folded upwards and sewn into the raglan seams.
