If there's one thing I find irrevocably sexy, it's the juxtaposition of a manly structure on a female body. Boyfriend shirts and blazers are my all time favourite garments to stock up in. Thankfully, Isabel Marant, largely known for her baggy/oversized outerwear and more has yet to disappoint us, as her recent H&M collaboration had a lot to offer in that department. For maximum effect I love to match such items with sexy mini skirts/shorts or skinny jeans, cause a boyfriend look is never complete without a hint of curve or bare legs! ;)

I'm not gonna lie, I love pants in all of their versions: skinny, high-waist, bootcut, flared, coloured - you name it - most of them very pretty and a little uncomfortable. Looking for something laid-back to wear on a weekend I discovered I only had about a handful of choices. So, I came to realise that in fashion comfort is severely underrated, and thought of ways to put together a relaxed, yet modern, and stylish look, which could possibly keep me going from day to night, without making me feel the need to change.
Said look, comprised of a pair of Sugarfree Shops leather jogger pants and cropped cable knit sweater did the trick. PVC accessories and details all over added consistency and a bit of glam ;)

I've always considered H&M designer collaborations to be a brilliant idea, and ever since I got acquainted with the concept I've made sure to get my hands on a at least a couple of collectible items from each (how quickly they sell out is uncanny and definitely adds to the frenzy). However, there's collaborations and there's Marant. I had the pleasure of reviewing the entire capsule collection at a pre-launch event and I can confidently say this is one of my favourites. Loved the oversized outerwear, baggy printed pants, lace tops, flagship Isabel Marant fringe boots to name a few. In other words, heads up, this is the first from a series of posts dedicated to this collaboration!
Here I'm wearing the oversized boyfriend coat from the collection with a modern back to school look composed of a graphic Hip and Bone tee, leather pleated skirt and Zara grungy mid calf block heel boots.
P.S. You can still find most of Isabel Marant pour H&M on ebay.

Even though a fan of monochromatic looks in winter, I can never entirely give up colour or lock away anything with a cheerful pattern for a good few months at a time. Thankfully winters in Athens are mild and allow for bare legs and mini skirts for a good chunk of time! Browsing a little on Mombasa Rose I found a few dresses which could be worn on a full year basis, with the appropriate outerwear and accessories -et voila!

I keep bumping into hidden treasures every single time I pass by my local Zara store. This leather crop happens to be one of my latest "treasured" acquisitions, along a bunch of other crops, which are definitely flooding my wardrobe by now! I wore it with a pair of low rise Current Elliott jeans and black Givenchy accessories, for a borderline badass look. What do you think?
