    I've been experimenting with colour and layering recently. I've put together two new outfits and I think they look satisfactory, but there's a niggling doubt in the back of my mind that they may be too 'wacky' for stuffy law lectures.

    Outfit 1: Patchwork dress layared ontop of poloneck, jeans and tan boots:



    Outfit 2: Wine pinafore dress layered ontop of teal puff-cuffed poloneck, teal tights and tan mary janes:



    Which do you like best?

    Honest opinions please people. I won't neg.

    If you have any suggestions for tweeks and improvements, those would be welcome.

    Also, what other outfits would go with these sexy tan shoes:

    I loove your hair! How do you do that?
    I think both outfits look fine, but I prefer the first one. Not a massive fan of the shoes in the second picture, just not the sort of thing I'd wear.

    Back-comb and spray, spray, spray. But I don't do it too often as it can ruin your hair if done frequently.

    I like the first outfit (you could also wear it with a brown cardigan over the top of the dress instead of the roll neck, the same colour as the roll neck wouldlook best-try zara)

    The second outfit isn't quite as nice. The sleeves and high neck make it look too bulky and there are too many colours. I'd wear a black high neck (not roll neck) skinny fit jumper (or zara's skiiny high neck cable knit jumper), black opaque tights and these beads http://www.lauraashley.com/Necklaces...creamp&bklist=

    First one nice, bit of an effort though. Not really sure on the second!

    Love the first, not too wacky at all, but don't like the second. Sorry.

    What do you like about it?

    The second outfit is my retro sassy side speaking :p:
    I guess I like the contrasting colours in blocks, I always think they look better than patterns, especially small patterns. And I covet the shoes :p:

    I like #1 the most, although they are both definitely suitable for a lecture. Very nice. You look lovely :yep:

    adore outfit number 1 - you look gorgeous (that is you right? lol)

    Number 2 is very nice but would you not be a bit warm?? I'd be sweating buckets haha.

    Don't worry about being wacky - or wanting to tone down wacky-ness just be yourself

    I don't like either to be honest, and number 1 is better than number two.

    The first one is okay, it's pretty generic for round here tbh. Second is horrible (sorry!); the sleeves are too much with the dress, I'd imagine that top would look better with a simple skirt/trousers, and the different colours don't really work together

    Both.

    2nd one is nice as i like the shoes.

    But to be honest you look hot regardless of what you wear.

    The first one is great and the second one is completely the opposite in my opinion. Maybe try the second one without tights and/or shorten/cut off the sleeves of the poloneck.

    With the second outfit, if you get your face painted blue, you could be a smurf! :p:

    Tan and black. Interesting combo. I never thought of that.

    I like the idea of those tan shoes with black opaque tights. But the colour of dress that usually flatters my complexion is brown, green or blue.

    I heart this dress: :love:



    But sadly it's too cold for the winter :sad:

    Yes I do too. Turns out its quite an acquired taste :p:

    I like dresses though I'm not a fan of top/bottom splits. They do nothing for my 5ft height.

    Hey Tufts, first outfit looks amazing. Second one I'm not such a great fan off, I like the contrast in the colours, but the dress isn't very flattering, or isn't when combined with the sleeves. It seems to add weight to you, weight which I can tell from the first pics that you don't have!
