Monochromatic look: classy ft. sporty

Fall outfit inspiration
Mixing classy and sporty

I would have never imagined the fact that classy and sporty could work so well together! I had always thought that both of these styles should never be mixed and that wearing them together in one outfit could be a big mistake! But as I do like to experiment with my style and as I have been seeing this combination quite a lot lately ( starting from fashion blogs, etc. to street style), I did decided to play with different outfit elements and try to make my point of view on this mix of two styles!

I received this black & white plaid coat from Lovelywholesale approximately a week and a half ago, but I have managed to wear it at least five times (!) already! I do love the coat and I have received tremendously great feedback from others about it as well, which I think just proves how great it is! The blouse I am wearing in this look is also from Lovelywholesale, whereas the necklace is from Dresslink. The classy side of this outfit is the coat, the blouse and the necklace, whereas the sporty side are the sneakers and the bag – both from H&M! The sneakers are still available and I strongly recommend them ( very comfortable & qualitative), but I think that the bag is gone as  I bought in the start of the summer on sale!
Nekad nebiju iedomājusies, ka sportiskais stils tik labi ies kopā ar klasisko stilu! Vienmēr biju domājusi, ka šie abi stili ir diametrāli pretēji un, ka kopā tos sasaistīt būtu diezgan liela kļūda. Bet tā kā man vienmēr patīk eksperimentēt ar savu stilu un tā kā dažādās interneta vietnēs ( blogos, modes ziņu portālos, lookbook,nu), kā arī uz ielām aizvien vairāk un vairāk pamanīju to cik šī kombinācija kļūst populāra, es arī nolēmu nedaudz “paspēlēties”!
Mugurā uzvilktais melnbaltais mētelītis neilgā laika posmā ir kļuvis ļoti mīļš un to no Interneta veikala Lovelywholesale saņēmu vien pusotru nedēļu atpakaļ! Šajā laika posmā mēteli esmu uzvilkusi jau reizes piecas ( vismaz!) un saņēmusi patiešām daudz atzinīgus komentārus un komplimentus! Blūzīte arī ir no šī paša interneta veikala, savukārt, kaklarotu un auskarus saņēmu sadarbībā ar Dresslink. Klasiskais manā tērpā ir šis mētelis, blūzīte un kaklarotiņa, savukārt sportiskais ir šīs melnbaltās sporta kurpes, kā arī šī lielā masīvā soma – abi divi no H&M! Kurpes vēl ir pieejamas ( un tās noteikti rekomendēju, jo tās ir ĻOTI ērtas kā arī kvalitatīvas), savukārt soma vairāk nav pieejama – to pirku vasaras sākumā uz atlaidēm!

      Thank you! At first I was a bit hesitant to add the sneakers to this look, but then I thought that I should just go for it & see how it looks! I am glad you think that they are a good match with this outfit!

      I am so happy you like this combo as I wasn't sure at first whether it would turn out the way I'd like it to turn out! I appreciate your comment!

    Loving this mix of styles. Your sneakers go so well with your coat and top – beautiful! Such an amazing styling job. I love experimenting with my style too 🙂

    • October 13, 2015 / 19:00

      It is a lot of fun, isn't it? 🙂
      Thank you Kat, I always love reading your thoughts on my outfits!

    • October 13, 2015 / 19:01

      Aww that is such a sweet compliment! Thank you very much!

    • October 13, 2015 / 19:01

      I am so glad you like the combo! Thank you Rupa! 🙂

    • October 14, 2015 / 18:42

      Thank you Rebecca very much! I have been wearing this coat all the time! Hehe 🙂

    • October 14, 2015 / 18:44

      Oh, that is a truly big compliment because, honestly, sportswear is VERY out of comfort zone, therefore, I am very happy to hear that I look natural in this style!
      Thank you for your comment!

      Hi Lilli!
      I know what you mean as I feel 100% the same way about this combination! Never expected to like it that much! 🙂
      Hugs to you back! :*

    Isn't amazing Maddie how well sneakers go with more polished looks. Who would have thought so. A few years ago you would have made my head hurt trying to convince me of this!


    • October 14, 2015 / 18:47

      Spot on! I would have never imagined that!
      Thank you for your time & stopping by this article, Sonia! 🙂

    I completely agree! I was so shocked when I discovered people mixing classic, classy/sporty looks together. It's tricky but works well if you get it right (which you did so effortlessly!) I love that coat, probably would have worn it as much, too! I love that the outfit works so well with those sneakers but I could totally see you wearing it with a pair of black or nude pointed toe heels! x

    • October 19, 2015 / 19:01

      I so agree with everything you said! 🙂 Great things come out if only you are brave enough, right? 🙂
      Thank you very much for so, so many kind words – you made me blush!!

    • October 19, 2015 / 19:02

      Thank you Elle! I surely need to thank my photographer of the day for them! 🙂

    I loooove this outfit! No wonder it reminded me of Korean street syle, since two of the items are from Asia, haha! I also like the sneakers, but I am still suspicious of H&M's shoe quality, I will probably check Geox though for something similar. And your make-up matches the look really well, too 🙂
