My Amsterdam Fashion Week outfit

My Amsterdam Fashion Week outfit







Do you notice anything different about me? Nope, I did not change my hair, drop 5 kilos or get a nosejob. I’m wearing glasses for the first time in my life! To be honest I’m cheating a little bit, my vision is ace, so I’m wearing non-prescription glasses. I sometimes wish I needed a pair though, as they can really add something to your outfit.

The pair I’m wearing in today’s post come from Specsavers, who asked me to show how to match one of the spring/summer trends for glasses (Crazy Colours, Luxury Feeling and Transparant) with an outfit. This trend has my name written all over it, as you all know I love a pop of colour! What I love about a coloured pair of glasses is that they can make an otherwise very serious outfit a bit more playful.

In my case I’m wearing this very gorgeous, but quite formal suit by Spijkers & Spijkers, which was my Amsterdam Fashion Week outfit to wear to their show. Funny side note: I actually instagrammed this suit when I visited last years’ show, so you can imagine my excitement when I was to be given the opportunity to wear it myself! I added a few colour accents to this outfit, including this purple pair of Specsavers glasses, et voilá: a funmal (= when fun meets formal, duh) look is born.

What do you think of this trend?
