We’re into the second half of this capsule wardrobe series, and if you’re new to this outfit extravaganza, you might want to visit this post before going any further. But in short, for the last six days I have been showcasing an outfit a day that comprises of clothing items previously selected for my 10-piece Winter Capsule Wardrobe. I have put together 10 outfits for 10 days exclusively using those 10 chosen items. Hopefully you’ll be inspired to try something like this; it’s super rewarding and makes you reevaluate your style, possessions and purchasing habits completely! Anyway, let’s get down outfit number 6:
It’s a cold and overcast Tuesday here in Joburg so a warm jersey and a pair of exaggerated culottes are all a girl really needs. Paired with some steezy sneakers for extra street cred and the most eccentric earrings, you could feel like a Superbalist kween and might even be inclined to say things like ”kween”. Cringe worthy jokes aside, I love this outfit and feel super on trend in it. I feel like the large shopper bag really added a subtle elegance to the look, and suited the other baggy clothing pieces. Some days you really just want to be comfortable and not worry about tucking things in or moving things around, and this is definitely an outfit for that!
ITEM #6 | THE PANTS
My favourite pants on planet Earth, these wide legged culotte-esque slacks are so casual and stylish at the same time, every time I wear them I feel like I can be myself and not give a single fuck about what anyone thinks. I think that’s tied into the fact that these pants will look how they look, no matter what I do. This sounds too philosophical for a Tuesday but seriously, if you put on a tight pair of jeans, there is a lot of admin that comes with it. Does my arse look good? Is it sucking in my love-handles? Is my zipper down? Do I need a belt? I should have washed them last night so they weren’t so damn loose! Et cetera. No. Not with these lovelies. What you see is what you get but thank goodness they look damn beautiful and fit like a dream! From their latest AW18 collection, these pants were made by Cape Town based brand, Merwe S.A.L.T.
