Who said that wearing head-to-toe black is boring? Or that we can’t wear light shades during fall? In this Playful Complements photo shoot, we combined knits with lightweight textures – tight fits with loose cuts. We set out to prove that piecing together controversial garments is cool.
The first outfits worn by Betty and Adam exemplify how to spice up a tight-loose combination of clothing. It’s worth playing with the textures – the close-fitting black sheer top on Betty accentuates her feminine figure while the skin-tight black turtleneck top on Adam perfectly complements the elegance of his high-waisted trousers.
As we demonstrated in our End of September lookbook, light colours look great on both men and women. The loose white linen shirt and the high-waisted dark beige trousers Adam wears make a light-hearted switch with Betty’s snow-white trousers and the off-white knitted sweater. These outfits remind us of those idyllic bohemian moments, sitting on the terrace on a silent day with a newspaper and coffee in hand.
