Its all feeling a bit nautical today! I’ve teamed a vintage striped top with M&S sailor style wide legged trousers and navy boat shoes for a fresh summery look.
Tucking a top into fitted trousers accentuates any curves (and my tummy definitely curves!) but today I’m embracing that! Yes my tummy is on show but the buttons on the hips draws the eye to the edge of your silhouette rather than the centre and the wide trouser leg balance it out. Also – thank God for M&S’s short lengths – I didnt have to alter these trousers for once!
I have added two button brooches I bought from eBay to the vintage top make it even more unique. This 80’s tee is a great jersey piece with panels of stripes rather than a continuous block which is more flattering.
Navy leather flats from Matalan finish the look. A pair of navy shoes is definitely worth having as works great with jeans too.
When I go out later all I’ll need to do is throw on a denim jacket and I’m good to go. Smart, fun, easy to wear and perfect for a Friday casual day if you dont want to wear jeans.
