One Skirt ~ Two Shirts
Today we are highlighting one of my favorite European cashmere designers. O.Ballou by Simon, which is based out of London…. with the cashmere coming from the finest cashmere factories in the world. Simon’s designs are very simplistic…. but classic and timeless are the words that come to my mind when I think about O.Ballou. Originally a men’s only line… O.Ballou quickly became uni-sex when European women discovered the amazing cut and fit of these sweaters. We took two sweaters out of the Fall/ Winter 2016 collection and paired them with one skirt to see how these timeless designs can be dressed in very different directions. We started with a O.Ballou black wool sweater with chest pocket, added in a Burberry straight off the runway sequin stretch wool skirt. The vertical stripes running through the skirt help balance out the thickness of the wool and help elongate the body. Then our Louis Vuitton eggplant colored belt helps pull in the waist to narrow. Then add in our bold, bold statement necklace by Sachin and Babi which enhances the outfit without dominating. We ended this outfit with a pair of black suede pumps by YSL and topped it off with a pair of crazy superhero sunglasses by Linda Farrow for Walter Van Beirendonck.
We started off our second outfit with a nautical stripe O.Ballou wool chest pocket sweater…. and by adding on the Nikes and a white Fendi belt… we have casual-ed out what could have been a more dressed up look.
Like we said…. One Skirt…. Two Shirts
Lots of Love,
