Summing my whole remix-challenge up in one post seemed like a good idea. Last week’s remix was kind of a double-remix, or perhaps even double-trouble, as I decided to use the same shorts with different capes. The shorts, which are from Gina Tricot, are probably the item I’ve featured most often on my blog, as I just think they go with everything. That’s also the main reason why I wanted to use them in this remix! Each of the looks are quite unique: from the classic white to a whimsical one in colors ; comfortable in over-sized knits to a kind of new-age chic in black. It was a challenge, indeed; but I think these kind of challenges are important to keep me creative.
Freezing in style
This first one is kind of the “pretty one”, if I can say that. It’s simple and classic, with a little bit of an edge to it. I belted it to make it more interesting, and give it a little extra umpf. Because it’s white, I think it’s easy to push over the edge to “super-romantic” – and I didn’t want to do that: so I kept it classic with the combination of black, white and brown.
Same shorts, different cape
My second version was the complete opposite from the first one. It’s a very whimsical look, I think; and though I’m not the most colorful person out there in general – I’m always up for a challenge when it comes to clothes! I do love experimenting, and this cape is perfect for that! It’s a very unique and strong piece which just fits perfectly over my shoulders. I think it deserves all the attention it can get, so I combined it with black and gray. I chose to add a belt to this one as well, mostly because I’m a fan of chunky clothing.
Get your knit on!
My third version of the “same shorts, different cape”-remix is more my color-palette, or what I believe is my color-palette. I can’t seem to figure that thing out. I’ve always loved wearing black and grays, and though many people feel uncreative wearing a monotone palette like this, I find it very inspiring! I love knits as well; so it’s perfect for me. It’s is a comfortable and “safe” look, with thigh-high stockings and a cozy sweater underneath.
The fourth and final outfit is kind of “super-chic”, if you know what I mean – without sounding too arrogant: and I entitled it “I’m batman” for the obvious reasons. I absolutely adore this faux-leather-patched cape from Monki, especially since it was a gift from my mother. I kept the whole look quite monotone; well, except from the evident hair – which was very temporary by the way. I went for sky-high platforms because they are my favorite shoes at the moment and knits because it’s cold outside.

I really like how different they turned out! Which did you like the most? I’m really curious. I can’t choose! I’m such a moody blogger, but I guess that’s a good thing. I like the diversity.
