Berry Tones – Closet London -The Dark Romance Collection

 

A new love label featured here this week. I often browse the Closet London brand. Sophisticated, smart, on-trend and a little more high end is how I would describe it. The Berry and green tones that are so popular this autumn-winter is available in abundance on the site and this outfit (gifted) that I’m sharing is from the new Dark Romance collection.

 

 

 

I love a lot about this outfit, a colourful one for me. I love a long pleated skirt and I will dress down with a berry pink  or this years “moss green” jumper for a more casual look.

The green jacket is tailored very well and there are matching trousers too if you’re looking for a suit. Great for work and dress up with a more formal top for the evening. I can’t resist a good pleated skirt, even though I wear a lot of trousers!

 

 

The jacket has a hot pink lining and the sleeves have a slit at the wrists. I decided to turn them back for a colourful finish (and my short arms) and I think it brings out the berry pink colour in the pleated skirt. A detachable necktie that I’ve left hanging loose is a nice little extra too. The panelled tailoring adds a nice waistline curve.

 

 

 

I paired the skirt and jacket with a berry-hued plain long-sleeved T-shirt and just look at that gorgeous berry-toned leafy backdrop. I’m enjoying discovering new places to take my outfit photos in Essex.

 

 

The grown-on waistband of the pleated skirt has a contrasting hot pink elasticated waistband. It’s paired with a black top on-line and looks stunning on the model but unfortunately black just doesn’t suit me.

 

 

The pleated skirt is gorgeous. Really floaty and light. It won’t be long until thick tights are worn underneath! It will look great for a night out with heels and a slinky top though. I guess all the Christmas parties will start soon?

 

 

Browsing the Closet London site I noticed a 50% off sale Definitely worth looking at for some lovely items. There are some beautiful dresses added there. Go grab a bargain. Most sizes are currently available so be quick! I’ve got my eye on this gorgeous dress. Sizing I would say is true to size from the brand and the quality is very good. It’s also nice to find something a little different.

 

 

Accessories to finish the look are the Black bag that I won in a competition. I still can’t believe my luck! And I treated myself to some new black knee-length boots that I fell in love with. I won’t be spending any more money for a while though! But the leather is so soft and I just love them. I couldn’t resist!

 

 

And here comes another downpour! Any of my blogger friends finding it hard to take photos at the moment! Even with a weather Ap, I get caught out!

I’m interested in hearing what you would choose from the Closet London brand? Let me know, please. Its the perfect place to find something special and I might add a little different from the same old, same old on the high street.

    Love this outfit Laurie – the colour combination of berry and green is gorgeous on you – I really like the way you have turned the cuff to show a flash of pink. plus, you found the perfect backdrop. I’ve had a peep on the ‘Closet’ website and loved some of their dresses and skirts. I tried my best not to be tempted!
    Before I go – those boots are stunning. The leather does indeed look so soft.

    Laurie, I am completely in love with this outfit! That skirt is simply magnificent. And I love how you pulled the berry and green tones in with your top and jacket. I would totally Goth it up with lots of black, but that’s just me. I absolutely adore the way you have styled this for you! Thanks so much for linking up with me.

      Thanks so much Mary. And there’s nothing wrong with taking time out from all the trimmings. I do it often and it feels so much nicer when I do make the effort. I’m actually very similar for so many days too xx

    The colours and print are striking on you, Laurie!! I love that sweet tartan pleated skirt and the way the whole outfit plays so well together!! Your backdrops are gorgeous and you just need to send your rain south to us here!! I would definitely go for that skirt and the dress you’ve looked at is pretty nice too!! Thank you for sharing!

    I know exactly why you love this outfit Laurie, because you look gorgeous in it, that’s why. Love the pleated skirt that falls right above the ankles showing off a perfect shoe. The colours are great, both green and pink are strong colours but they don’t clash rather compliment each other.
