What To Wear #58: Another Summer Day In Hamburg…

…means layers and longer sleeves once again.

The weather report was fairly optimistic, but a glance out the window proves that nature might not have made up its mind just yet. Sticking my head out sends me scurrying back to find a scarf, because the cool breeze that is no stranger to these parts has made itself known.

This dress arrived in my closet during an acute phase of wanting to try out new prints and cuts, and I have not been disappointed with my choice. If I’m completely honest, the dress does look a bit better if one has been exercising more regularly a few weeks before, but then it’s made from a nice, stretchy jersey, so why beat yourself up? The splotchy, graphic print is eye-catching, while the black and white makes the dress both acceptable for a dresscode-free workplace and good for a multitude of combinations in terms of accessories and other colors.

It also makes me fantasize about working in an art gallery or heading an event management agency. There she goes, visible artsy streak with a touch of flamboyance, but decidedly German as soon as she opens her appointment book (she’s got a hankering for retro as well, no smartphone calendars here)…I’m sorry, am I talking about myself too much? Of course I am!

My one rule if including a scarf is to pick either one without a pattern or a very subtle one. Today’s choice is one of my favourite scarves and also a go-to combination with darker colors, as the brightness of the scarf both stands out winningly against the darker color and tempers its possible severity. The shoes have been featured here before – once again the comfort of a thicker heel is confirmed, and this is another shoe color that goes well with a lot of combinations.

Ready to go.
