There are so many contrasts in a city in so many different ways: whether it is environment wise like buildings versus parks, glass & steel versus trees & flowers, old classic architecture versus modern minimalism or social, with rich versus poor people, native inhabitants versus tourists and old versus young people.
Contrasts, as long as they stay within a normal margin of course, bring a city to life. Give almost litteraly colour to the urban life. So many different foods, entertainment possibilities and lifestyles make a city visitor wonder and wander
I also like to make a contrast with my outfit. A bright blue coloured look for a rainy summer day, surrounded by grey metal, glass and stone buildings as high as the sky or a full white look in the middle of a cold winter.
I really like the concept of jumpsuits in general. They are easy to wear and you can make them as fashionable or comfortable you want. This blue ensemble is definitely a fashionable one, with it’s single shoulder cut, fitted taille and close-fitting trousers with zippers. I chose to wear a belt with metal details from Nikkie Plessen and it gives a nice contrast with the reflective glass of the buildings around me. It is striking how often I use my cobalt blue lace-up sandals from Gianvito Rossi, because when I bought them, I really thought that I only would wear them to fashion week or other fashion events, because they are so extravagant… (but still I couldn’t resist to buy them because they looked so beautiful in the boutique). So with this in your mind maybe you will buy those glitter shoes of your dreams next time haha
