Bringing it back: Madras

Weve seen the madras come back every now and then in spots over the last few decades. Now, fifty  years since its wide use in prep-surf culture of the early sixties, we see madras all over.

We are hoping that we are moving away from the Nordic weather and into warmer days, but until then, we are still all about layers.

 Browsing through street shots taken for Milan Fashion week, I fell IN LOVE with this girls outfit! Thank you Mr. Newton AND Stockholm Streetstyle for capturing this. The proportion, texture, and color is very well played. The slouchy tunic sweater paired with the blazer and fun trouser are amazing. The favorite part of the outfit is the straight skinny leg pant which is a relief from (although we love them) the slouchy drape pants we see everywhere. That being said, this look was difficult to shop for! Where does a lady find a beautiful stick straight slim trouser? We found some options below and if you add the other elements, and most importantly, top it off with a fedora, you'll be stylin' too. Shop the look below.
