MARNI at H&M - Try on Session


When H&M said it was ok after me asking, I think I was in the changing room before they even finished their sentence.

Look 1...
I added a detachable collar with self tie which works over anything right now e.g. Tee shirt and old jeans. Comes in black too.


Look 2:  The short sleeved silk top has a matching pant but I wore it with a patterned coat and crop pant set instead.  I liked the coat lining.   These work together but also separately.



Normally I'm in ankle boots but I turned up in flats which worked better with the clothes. Shoes from ShoeMint.

  

The pants would be killer with red, black, magenta or white pointy heels.


Look 3:  The cobalt crop jacket has a structured feel to it and the colour is punchy but wearable.  I see it layered over a long floaty skirt or dress too.


If you're thinking about mixing prints and colours, there's enough here to pick something(s) that work together or with things you probably have right now.


Lou and I stopped in between taking pictures of the collection to take shots together. He's wearing the mens collection in this blog post  Note. Shoes/hats/glasses are our own.

I walk into the showroom last week and spot mens fashion blogger Dapper Lou.  He was with photographer friend Hannan trying on the mens Marni for H&M.  See the mens looks he styled here.

So I took one look at the womens clothes that I was shooting and thought ok what the heck.  It's a chance to see how the clothes are on.  I'm in.

I'm a sucker for playing with mixing patterns.  As long as you make it your own, you can have fun with anything that's out there.

Huge thank you to H&M!

ps. For those asking my shoes are from ShoeMint
