With the cold creeping in and the leaves ready to fall we thought it time to bring you some outfit inspiration for the coming months. With the aim of creating sustainable style and season-less pieces to be treasured, here at Mayamiko we’re quite the experts at reinventing our looks. So for this feature we’re bringing you some, hopefully new, ways to wear your organic cotton, luxury linen and silk pieces that will take you all the way through to 2021. Paired with neutral basics you likely already own - with a joyful Mayamiko touch - these flattering looks, we hope, will be super easy to recreate. Let us know what you think!
The workwear casual look that won't be forgotten. Pair a patterned jacket in a smart but relaxed style like our Jamila Dustcoat with quality black basics. You can fit a chunky knit under a light jacket so opt for a ribbed thick knit with a flattering high neck. Add some above-the-waist tapered trousers and finish with bold natural material earring like these YEWO Fumu beauties. These Huma Blanco 'Harlow Marigold' statement boots are handmade in Peru by the artisans of Fortress of Inca.
Nothing beats the ease of a flattering jumpsuit like our 'Hope' linen number but they can often be a hard and impractical item to wear come winter layers. We think we have the solution. Add over the top of a long sleeve jersey or mesh top from your wardrobe - stripes are a bonus! They choose a heavy weight Komono style wrap jacket which will look great open or closed. This Komodo jacket is made from 100% recycled PET. Finish with some soft bamboo socks and neutral sneakers.
Casual trousers are the only way now we're spending more time indoors and this is the perfect outfit for lounging. These luxe linen pants are tapered for comfortable fit. Try wearing them with our printed Atupele Cami over a semi-fitted white shirt, and why not a zebra mask to match! Finish this cosy get up with some pale brogues and an oversized grey cardigan - the bigger the better.
Here is another easy way to make a bold print into an easy outfit. Take out Kuwala Tulip dress. Tie the waist or keep it lose depending on you style. Slip under a long-sleeved light black knit, a jersey top or even a blouse, pair with the ubiquitous black skinny jeans and a pair of black ankle boot like this lovely ethically made pair. Keep jewellery paired back and metallic like these brass 'Mbale' studs from YEWO.
