I love this casual summer ensemble that our friend Theo over in London recently put together. The pleated, high-waisted, brown linen trousers are probably something every style blogger will tell you to avoid, but when well tailored and well fitting, I think they can look great. The cardigan by itself, worn like a jacket, is something I’ve found difficult to pull off, but Theo here makes it look pretty good. Maybe he just has the right proportions for it.
You can’t see it in this photo, but if you were able to zoom in, you’d also notice that Theo’s shirt is slightly patterned (there are small dots running along like stripes). Again, I think it’s always good to have a little pattern or texture somewhere, just so that three or four solid colors don’t end up looking too boring.
