Spring – Around The Corner
As the weather here tends to always be warmer than cooler, we took the opportunity to start early with our spring looks for the year. We paired up with “Scarlet Beirut“, a fairly new concept store that is nestled in the streets of Achrafieh (Abdel Wahab street). They have pieces from around the world, and have an amazing hairdresser whose specialty is in braids.
We did a series of looks and this our first one:
As young urban girls, we love to try out different outfits that include statement pieces. Here we are both wearing the same oversized jacket, which could also be worn as a dress (but you would need to slim it around the waist with a belt).
I opted to wear the brown knee-length jacket with a pair of dark jeans (Topshop) and a printed tee. I added a pair of black ankle boots (Jonak) to keep the look casual and chic. The color is really easy to match, and it is a great piece to have in your closet. A new essential item!
I created a corporate/modern look by wearing the green oversized jacket with a tight striped knee-high skirt along with a see-through white shirt tucked under the skirt. I added a nice pair of black leather low heels (Topshop) to give my silhouette a grungy twist.
Both of us accessorized our outfits with a Scarlet-Vanina headpiece (that will be a whole other post soon on the blog).
All items can be found at Scarlet Beirut unless stated otherwise.
