Spring has Sprung

Spring has SprungSpring has finally sprung in Berlin….at least that’s what it looks like right now. You can never trust the weather in Germany; especially not in April. But hey, diverse weather makes for a diverse wardrobe, right? Although it was still quite chilly when I went home for Easter, the sun was shining like there was no tomorrow, and so I had no choice but to switch on my happy spring mood.

Spring has SprungSpring has Sprung“Why is she wearing black then?”, you might be wondering. I hear you, and it makes sense to question my choice of colour. But as long as the sun isn’t strong enough to break me out in sweats (although that threshold has indeed been reached for the first time this morning on my way to the supermarket), I’ll be embracing the beauty of black.

Spring has SprungI don’t know about you, but I can hardly contain my excitement about discovering all the sartorial gems shops will be offering in the next few months. One firm favourite of mine, that will definitely celebrate a seasonal comeback, is wide-legged pants in any form and colour. I honestly can’t wait to amp up my culottes game and combine them in new, exciting ways. Maybe I’ll go for more feminine or maritime ensembles this spring and summer? Stay tuned 🙂

What trend are you looking forward to the most this season?

    oh my god yessss! i’m thanking every god out there for bringing the wide leg trend back. those are my favorite kinds and it has been impossibly hard finding an affordable pair these last few years. i’m trying to keep myself on a spending ban but im nervous the style will sell out and never come back again haha. I’m just WAITING for zara to have a sale so i can scoop up every single one of their culottes 🙂

      Haha…I know what you mean. Fashion trends are so fleeting aren’t they? I remember how culottes used to be super trendy in the 90s…and they only came back last year. Better get your hands on every single pair of culottes you can possible find before they’re gone again 😀 xx

    What about navy blue in April? I’m wearing it right now (25 degrees in Milan… 🙂


    • http://whatdefinesus.com/ Jasmin

      25°C in Milan? I’m in the wrong city 😀 Anyways…Thank you so much for your lovely words. I was actually thinking of navy blue and white too…once the temperatures pick up 😉 xx

    Well i still try to wear my dark clothes too while i can, as soon as the weather starts warming up the total black is not for me!

    Yeay, I’m early today! You got me excited to see the many ways you will be sporting the culottes and I have to say that your almost all-black outfit is never boring – I like the way waterfall coat drapes over the front, the slither of one bare knee, your sporty shoes and the elegant gold watch all mesh into this sophisticated yet casual getup. I drool! :3 <3 xoxo

      I’m so so happy to hear that Shanaz! There’s always the risk of looking boring in all black, but I’m glad I’m not 😉 xx

  • Ivana Džidić

    I’m also really looking forward to the wide leg trend…I think they’re always so fabulous. I love flares, but wide legs are even more chic…and they offer so many possibilities because they are one of the few pieces that can be worn both in a very formal and casual way.

    this all black look is so cute…wonderful photos sweetie!


    • http://whatdefinesus.com/ Jasmin

      I totall agree! Wide-legged pants can not only be worn in a formal as well as casual way, but they’re also so much more comfortable than skinny jeans 😉 xx

      • Ivana Džidić

        Much more indeed…I only ever had one pair of skinny jeans and I gave them to my mother…my wide pants, however, I am keeping all to myself.

          I don’t blame you 😉 xx
