Our friend, Michelle W., creator of the fun Something to Wear blog, recently wrote about how she’s been lovin’ lumo lately, especially paired with crisp white and silver. She gave a few of Anna’s lumo pieces from the current collection a whirl. Here’s what she has to say about how they work for her.
I started my color therapy by leading off with a super new trench coat from my favorite posh plus size designer, Anna Scholz. This frill-trimmed, leopard lined confection is in an ever so slightly greenish glowing light yellow called Lumo, that is truly luminous. With a slight empire waist, flared sleeves and flared skirt, the fit is divine, and the details make this the most charming coat I have ever owned. I wear it with work clothes, denim, you name it. I am so in love with this darned coat that I will be sad to see the rainy days go, and kind of miss living in my hometown in rainy Oregon…well, almost.
Now I am a big fan of color generally, and I am always trying to incorporate more of it into my wardrobe in the chicest way possible, so Anna and I are a match made in heaven. Along with the amazing coat, I nabbed her clever, long “drawstring” cardigan in a bold, saturated chartreusey lime. This cardi is great because of its amazing versatility – you can draw up the strings ala Roman shades to make it varying lengths to suit your figure and outfit. And, yes, a bold hue like chartreuse can be versatile! Depending on what you pair it with, this piece looks dressy, it looks casual; it is, in a word, sensational. The first sunny day we had I wore it with white jeans, a white tee, and some white sandals with kicky colored tassels. …The cardi also cheered up another neutral palette when paired with chocolate brown trousers and a pair of awesome snakeskin platform sandals. LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!
