Fashion Day: It’s All About The Long-Lines…

Fashion Day: It’s All About The Long-Lines…

Are you feeling the cold yet?  I know I am!  I’ve been layering up and wearing my thick, over-sized jumpers, cardigans, and my latest buys; the long-line cardigan and vest.

I’ve noticed that this season, there seems to be quite a lot of stores serving up anything and everything longer and looser.  And for me, that’s a win-win!  Hides my ever-growing rump I say.  Plus I think the softer lines help make the silhouette seem a lot softer and more feminine too.

What were my latest buys?

All About The Long-Lines

Long Line Vest

Great for that gorgeous layered look, the ^long line vest is perfect for autumn and even later when the weather gets a lot colder.  I bought this vest when Boohoo had their 30% off sale and because I’ve signed up as a student, I received another 10% off.  Not a bad lot of savings I say!  So, if you’re a student, make sure you sign up for their student discount.  And one thing I’ve learned is to apply whatever discount code they might be running on their site AND THEN enter your 10% student discount code.

I’ve worn this with a long sleeved knit and black skinny pants to give it that nice, slim silhouette, which balances out the chunkiness of this warm vest.  Add a patterned or colourful scarf for a little bit of contrast and I am ready to go!  I could also add a belt cinched at the waist for more definition.

This vest would also look great worn over the Popbasic black long sleeved dress, cinched at the waist with a wide waist belt and a pair of boots. I’ve folded the collar line to create some sort of an illusion of a lapel on the front.  It also creates a nice v-shape near the neckline.

Long Line Cardigan

Another favourite is this long line cardigan I bought from Temt.  Aztec print is pretty big right this moment as that monochrome trend that never seems to go anywhere, any season!

This cardigan went well with a chambray shirt, black jeggings and a pair of boots, which was what I wore on our date night to Geppetto‘s, a few weeks ago.  I just love understated simplicity!

Are you a fan of these long line styles too?  What have you got that has this lovely silhouette?
