It’s a red letter day here at Style Sprite. For the first time since I launched this little endeavor (slightly less than two months ago), I am wearing pants (trousers, to any Brits reading this). To date, I’ve featured a few skirts and a copious number of dresses (yes, I know, as some of you have pointed out, I have a little bit of a problem when it comes to dresses; I appreciate your concern and will let you know if an intervention is needed!) It may seem crazy that someone this interested in style should neglect such a standard piece of clothing but my proclivity towards skirted garments is driven by the fact that they typically fit my feminine and flirty aesthetic perfectly. That said, when I picked up this lace coat at Zara last week, I felt that the delicate detailing was calling out to be contrasted with the hard, clean lines of a pair of black jeans. It’s certainly a departure for me. What do you think? Do you want to see more masculine influences or is the sight of my legs separately encased completely unnerving?!
