I hope you're doing well. I'm back with another thrifted look. I think it's become my new favorite hobby. I go there at least once a week now. It's important to know that not all second-hand stores (friperies in French) are well organized. When that's the case, enter the store with a an open mind and be patient.
For this shoot, I wanted to create an effortless monochromatic look. I opted for a suit because it's super easy-to-style and you can mix and match the pieces as you want.
I bought this black oversized blazer two months ago for 5 euros. It's one of those pieces that will never go out of style. It can be worn with a pallazo pants for the office, as a belted blazer dress for a date night look or with a pair of jeans for a lunch friends. I've already styled it not that long ago right here.
I've been looking for a black tailored pants for the longest time. Women's pantsuits are usually too fitted to my liking so I decided to go to a small vintage shop that only sell clothes for men. After digging through piles of clothes for approximately 10 minutes, I finally found this classic ankle-length pantsuit. I couldn't try it on because the dressing room was closed (Covid-19 safety measure) so I didn't think about it too much and bought it (5 euros). It's a little big around the waist but it's ok. To add a little touch of femininity to this androgynous look, I decided to pair the blazer with a simple crop top from Boohoo (7 euros).
This spring/summer, I've been wearing barely-there sandals almost everyday because they go with absolutely everything! I bought them from Shein last May (14 euros). To brighten up this tonal look, I added my favorite summer accessory which is this turquoise clutch from Amazon. I'm also wearing a handmade shell bracelet and silver midi rings from H&M (set of 10 rings for 7 euros).
You can easily adapt the power suit trend to your own style. If you live in a hot country, you can always replace the ankle-length pants by bermuda shorts. Keep scrolling to see how I styled this monochromatic outfit.
