Style and Fashion, over 40.

Styling a Camisole over a T-shirt | Orange, Grey & Navy

Fake Fabulous | Orange camisole, Navy undertop, grey waistcoat, skinny light denim jeans and silver shoes.

Every few years the trend for wearing spaghetti straps (or vest tops) over a tee shirt comes back around.
A great nostalgic throwback to the 90's.

Even though I remember the 90's trend first hand, I still like the look.
And, of course, in Scotland, the practical side of layering is always a bonus!

I think that spaghetti strapped dresses (and tops) look great over fitted short sleeved (and long sleeved) fine gauge t-shirts.
I especially like the look over a delicate roll neck.
(I need to save that one for the autumn though)

Today's casual outfit was all about layering, and mixing cool and warm tones together.
I wanted to wear my orange camisole again (last spotted here) and layer this slightly sparkly blue tee-shirt underneath.
Super soft skinny jeans were the perfect partner for a comfortable look.

I really wanted to wear these silver sandals again too (see them here with a tartan tee).
They are made of the softest leather with a leather sole and a quality finish.
Silver in colour, with a slightly holographic sheen.
They really caught my eye.

I bought these shoes while I was in London and they were just meant to be mine.
They were the last pair in the shop (which was closing down).
It was fate!
Reduced from £120 to £14.
Yep, the princely sum of £14.
Buying a couple of coffees (and cakes) was more expensive in the city.

Silver shoes can jar with warmer tones (like orange) so I popped on my little grey waistcoat to help pull them together.

Adding a chunky silver and gold necklace helped make the colour clash look intentional, not like I just grabbed the first cardi in my cupboard!

Gold studs and orange nails, finished my look off perfectly.

    1. Thank you Judy. It is a rare day indeed (in Scotland) where layers are not required! :oP
      Although, we did have a hot one the other day....I actually took my cardigan off!! XXX

  8. I haven't worn spaghetti straps over a tee since the 90's and actually had forgotten about this trend. But I definitely am going to try it out again. I hate spaghetti straps because I cannot stand when my bra straps stick out. And sometimes a cardigan ruins the shape of the outfit. So layering underneath is the way to go! This is an adorable look. I love the color blocking and I am absolutely swooning over those sandals! Do come link it up with me On the Edge of the Week!

    1. It is a bit of a throwback, isn't it? Hahaha. I was such a numpty, not showing the straps over the top (as Jodie said). I must do something similar soon and get my straps out! XXX

    2. It's a great look, though! Thanks so much for linking up with me! I do hope to see you again this Friday!

  9. Another super great combination. I love metal finishes, but like you prefer that the combinations look purposeful. Great ideas. I think I missed the 90s since I don't recall this trend.at.all.
