After my Parisian trip, I started researching imagery of European style. I used Pinterest as my main source, as my home feed always throws up loads of cool imagery based on what I’ve liked before and boards I’ve followed in the past. From the street style shots from couture shows, I came across an image which I loved so much I have used it as inspiration to create this look for today’s post.
Normally I take inspiration from different outfits people have posted to create a whole new look of my own, but when I saw this particular look of a tank top and paper bag jeans I just thought I must own most of these pieces and I can easily recreate a similar look from my wardrobe. I have put some images at the bottom of this post and you will see how effortless and with ease Julie Pelipas glides down the street towards another couture show. Also, I’m not alone in loving this look, the Man Repeller even wrote a whole article on how this is the summer look!
So I decided to raid my wardrobe to see what outfit I could come up with, starting with the bottoms. I remembered before my holiday in a ‘spare of the moment’ purchase I bought these cream paper bag waist trousers in the sale from Zara. At the time the weather was far too hot here, let alone in France where the weather hit 35c but as the weather has cooled slightly I am able to wear them for this look. For the tank top I opted for this H&M ribbed vest top that I bought a true to size (size 10) but honestly, I could have gone down a size, as there is plenty of room in the body. The two-tone creams look great against each other but after looking at the original image that inspired this look, I know now I will be on the hunt for a camel coloured high neck top. The sandals are a pair I’ve worn non-stop for the last two months and the bag was a lovely gifted piece from John Lewis.
This is a loose take on the Julie Pelipas ‘perfect outfit of the summer’ look. Let me know if you like this look or have your own source of inspiration for summer looks.
