A couple of weeks ago I bought these red capri pants from Lindy Bop, as part of my ongoing bid to own all the capri pants in all the land.
Now, I WAS going to do a “three ways to wear” post with them, but then I thought, why stop there? Why, there must be 50 ways to wear your red capri pants, right? No, wait: that’s leaving your lover I’m thinking of, isn’t it? OK, well, I can’t promise you fifty ways to wear red pants (although I expect there ARE probably that many), but here are just a few to be getting on with…
Shirt c/o Unique Vintage (similar); Head Over Heels shoes
01. Pin-Up 101
So, this is your basic ‘casual pin-up’ look, brought to you by my continuing love of white shirts, plus a cheeky bit of midriff, which I didn’t actually realise was quite so cheeky until I looked back at the photos and was all, “Oh yeah, there’s my belly.”. C’est la vie!
02. Blazer n’ Breton
My fallback uniform: there are days when I actually don’t think I’d be able to dress myself without the help of one of my (many) trusty Breton tops…
03. The trusty trench
Three more items for the”couldn’t live without it” files: the H&M sweater I now own three versions off, because it’s just so soft and comfortable I can’t stop wearing it; the trusty trench, because obviously, and the red patent flats that I wear so often I’m amazed they haven’t fallen apart yet. And when they do, I WILL cry.
04. The beatnik beret
I have a new-found love of berets, which I totally blame CiCi Marie for. I also have a complete inability to pose normally in them, which I have no one to blame but myself for, so sorry about that.
H&M jacket; Dorothy Perkins tee; Marc by Marc Jacobs handbag
05. The casual red pants
I seem to have inadvertently made this post a homage to all of the things I wear most often, because this denim jacket is another one of those pieces that’s in constant rotation. What can I say, I like my classics…
H&M sweater and boots; Dorothy Perkins scarf (similar)
06. The cold weather option
Well, I figured I should probably include at least one option I could actually wear right now, huh?
And there you have it: 6 ways to wear red capri pants! I’m sure there are many more, too, but I’m just going to be honest with you – by the time I took the last set of photos, it was dinner time. And I. Was. Starving. Well, it’s hungry work standing around wearing clothes all day, dontchya know…
