barbroandersen 's Thoughts:

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.

I’m batman!
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.

1. I’m wearing a gifted poncho from Lindex, Gina Tricot shorts, Forever21 top, Lindex tights, vintage belt, H&M hat and Benelli boots.
2. I’m wearing a gifted cape from Vila, Gina Tricot shorts, Cubus stockings and belt, H&M hat, B.young sweater and wedges via Nelly.com.
3. I’m wearing Cubus cape, Gina Tricot shorts, Cubus stockings, random sweater and boots via Nelly.com.
4. I’m wearing Monki cape, Gina Tricot shorts, JSFN knits, H&M hat, random tights and Asos shoes.

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.
