    Retro Vibes


    I racked my brain for other ways to wear the pants from this striped set because seriously striped cigarette pants are REALLY hard to style, as I had just discovered with these particular striped ones! I can honestly say I have more flattering pants than them in my wardrobe (on me, that is) but I tend to wear what I want to wear anywayjust as everyone should, purely for our own satisfaction (and self-loving and confidence and all that good stuff!).
    The morning of this day, I remembered that I bought this burnt orange bomber jacket last year, with zipper at both sides, but also had no idea what to match it with. Coincidentally it matches the stripe in my pants so I consider "Round 1: Match Striped Cigarette Pants With Something Other Than Matching Top" done and dusted! Looking at these photos gives me retro vibes, for some reason... 
    Care to share ideas on how to style these pants for Round 2, guys? Because I need help with this one! (And for the jacket, toomuch appreciated!)

            3. This is a cool look Liyana!
              I would love to see the set together??? :o)
              As for round two..... more stripes? Thin ones, horizontal ones, bold ones.
              Or florals? Huge and bold.
              Or ruffles?
              Or Giant dots? Or teeny ones?
              Or leopard.......in fact I can't wait to see what you come up with.
              I need to did my stripes out SOON!!!

              1. Over the weekend I tried to see what I could match it with but without success =( but hopefully some brilliant idea will come to mind soon! I like the idea of stripes + florals, though, definitely.

                PS: Glad the link worked out for you!
