Colette Wardrobe Architect Experimentation: Silhouettes with Pants/Leggings (aka Fun with Polyvore)

Continuing with my Colette Wardrobe Architect experimentation, here are my other Polyvore creations, this time, with pants.  Or leggings, because I do sometimes wear those with a tunic or long shirt.  All of these silhouettes are for the fall or winter season, which is 9 months out of the year where I live, so represents the bulk of my wardrobe needs.


I don't have a red blazer, but I do have a white button-down, black pants and black wedge boots like that.  And I have several blazers to choose from, but all more muted colors, like grey...and grey houndstooth.  Okay, I have several shades of grey.  Not 50 though, ha!

So I feel like this is a real, workable silhouette, and the addition of a red blazer is a good idea to brighten up my wardrobe.  I have to work on ironing my shirt more often too.  Knits are so nice for that reason...

OK, and another pants variation:


This time with a loose top paired with a cardigan.  I'm diggin' the waterfall style cardigans in various prints.  Again, I don't have one.  I have several loose cardigans like that, but plain-colored, but not with a print design.  I think I tend to reserve my prints for my shirts, so I keep the other pieces more neutral.  But I'd like to change that up a little.

And finally, with straight-legged or wide-legged pants à la Hepburn:

This is another attainable silhouette.  I have very similar shoes and jackets.  I could make one more pair of pants, more fall/winter appropriate than my current wide-legs.  And I could sew (and then iron) another button-down.  This is a very classic, safe silhouette for when I need to dress more conservatively, but it still represents my tastes.  I can always funk it up with the accessories.

This exercise just may help me organize my sewing after all...wanna place bets?

  1. Ooh, I really like those spots of colour. A Red blazer sounds like a perfect combination piece. Love the shoes, too!
