How do you spend Mother’s Day? Is there a traditional outing or do you mix it up? Perhaps you take the time for yourself or have the whole circus come through your home. Whatever your plans, we think Black Pepper has a look for every occasion. From casual, sporty to chic, their range never compromises style or comfort – two things close to our heart! We styled Vivienne in four looks for four very different occasions and love them all like our kids – equally : )
EXTENDED FAMILY – First up, a relaxing lunch at one of the kids’ houses with a mix of relatives. You want to be totally at ease but still, feel “nice”. Wear your favourite basics – comfortable pants and a simple tee – then bring it to life with a large statement scarf. We just love the autumnal tones in this scarf, it’s sheer and has a light, linen feel to it so it’s a good in-between weather option – just layer it up if it’s really cold. Below we’ve picked up on the burgundy tones with a matching clutch and the orange sits against the navy perfectly as they’re opposite sides of the colour wheel and compliment one another.
CHARITY WALK – Hands up if you enjoy an active Mothers Day? Large, organised Mothers Day walks increase with popularity every year and there is no stopping these fund-raising pavement pounders! It’s a fabulous tradition that many have been taking part in for over ten years now and we can’t think of a more positive way to spend your morning. With the weather being unpredictable at this time of year, layers are your best friend. We’ve chosen a practical yet stylish combination of a navy vest and a pretty aqua anorak as the outer layer. Also, note these pants! They’re kinda famous among Black Pepper regulars and women return to buy them in every tone. They’re all the comfort of a track pant but with elevated fabrications, details and cuts to make you look a bit more put together.
SLOW SUNDAYS – The world can be divided into two types of people – those who wear whatever is comfy to bed and those who obsess over their pyjamas. Whether you’re a sleepwear devotee or just looking for comfy and easy-wash options, then this special edition of Black Pepper sleepwear has got you sorted. We chose to style the set below as they’re 100% cotton and have a thickness and warmth to them without the stuffiness of flannel. So if you’re staying in or enjoying a slow start to your morning, treat yourself to a new set of PJ’s or put them on your wish list.
HEADING OUT – Lunch anyone? We styled two of our favourite Black Pepper pieces for this look – The ‘Rigby’ pants and the ‘Coatigan’. As you may have seen in our Pants Guide, this Rigby style suits everyone – and the ladies in that feature will attest to their out-of-this-world comfort. This olive tone instantly caught our eye too! It’s perfect for autumn/winter styling as it sits so well against navy, much better than black. And a drumroll please for the Coatigan! Is it a coat, is it a cardigan? Why choose! It’s so smart yet just as cosy and your favourite cardy – this one is going into high rotation in our wardrobe. Throw in a preppy stripe and some fun metallic ankle boots and we think you’ve got a stylish Mothers Day ahead.
