I’ve loved this dress from the moment I got it more than two years ago. The sleeves maketh the frock and without them it would be very simple. But that’s why I never tire of wearing it. It’s low-maintenance and forgiving; qualities I admire in humans and clothing alike. I’ve worn it in every season on countless different occasions. This particular look, I feel, is perfect for the transition from winter to spring.
My jungle green leather ankle boots are a gift from Van Dal. I adore the contrast between the leather and the suede. They’re supremely comfortable and very well made. They’re infinitely more interesting than black and versatile enough to wear with jeans and with dresses of all lengths. The subtle studded detail around the heel and the understated buckle add elegant style touches without imposing.
The Perfect Pair
What is the perfect eyewear for a green outfit? A muted shade of green such as this, behaves rather well as a neutral and therefore, most other colours work with it. In this instance though, I’m putting the theory of the colour-wheel into practice. As a reminder, complementary colours are those which are directly opposite one another on the colour wheel. Shades are colours with black added. Human eyes notice the contrast between complementary colours more than any other combinations; it creates the most vivid contrast, for example, violet and yellow. This Stepper frame, (SI-30094 colour F310I, is a shade of red-orange, (which means it sits between red and orange on the colour wheel and has had black added to it to make it more muted). Therefore, it complements the blue-green shade of my dress which is equally muted.
This frame has got subtle style detail on the temple; the gold adds a touch understated glamour which makes it ideal for both daytime and evening looks. It is versatile too. It works as well as an ophthalmic frame as it does as a sunglass. And as I have come to expect with STEPPER eyewear, the comfort is exceptional.
