When it comes to layering for spring, it’s not cheating to have your layers in-built into a single piece; in fact, that’s part of the trend. Many a designer has ventured into pieces that include shorter layers under longer ones, opaque layers under sheer ones. A maxi-skirt cutaway to reveal a mini layer is the perfect example. This mint ASOS one spotted on Jess at Tuula is very much like a silk Acne version that’s hiding somewhere in my own wardrobe (though mine is blue). They’re day-to-night pieces that dress up, down, and everywhere in between as long as the weather is right.
Jess also makes a fine point about soft mint as a colour: being tall and blonde, pastel pinks and yellows can make you “look like a barbie”, so mint is her alternative of choice. Wise words from the leggy and stylish.
