Relaxed White Summer Suit

knit-mesh tee: COS
jacket: COS
shorts: COS
platform loafers: COS
bag: COS – paper store bag

The shorts and jacket are intentionally a couple of sizes too big. The jacket becomes a bit more boxy, bomber-like and the shorts a bit more boyish and relaxed. That is exactly the thing that I like so much about COS; their pieces always leave so much room for the personality and interpretation of the wearer. I’ve seen 75 year old ladies try on the same stuff as teenage girls and on both it looked like a completely different garment. It is probably the single high street store that approaches design from a more timeless classic point of view as opposed to blindly following loud trends. Instead of seasonal prints; cuts, fits, unexpected fabrics and details rule the racks.
Are their store-bags not the perfect pale lunch bags? I cut off the straps, rolled it up and added a metal clip. My-COS project via Fashiolista

    Arghh this is so gorgeous!!

    I want to buy this whole outfit immediately, that mesh tee is perfect.

    You and COS are a match made πŸ™‚

  16. Maria says:

    I totally agree with you. In the newest COS magazine, there is a photoshoot showing that also older women can wear their clothes and look perfect. That’s why I love COS.
    And oh, I also think that this shopping bag needs to be reused in an other way! It’s so good looking as a lunchbag!
    Beautiful minimal look.

    Perfection as always! (you can do no wrong, Ivania) xx.

    The most perfect summer outfit.

  19. Alleen jij kan een papieren Cos tas tot een fashionable accessoire omtoveren! Heel leuk gedaan.

    Kleren opzettelijk een paar maten te groot kopen voor de gewenste feel is een truc die ik ook vaak toepas…

    awesome outfit!

  21. Camilla says:

    I am SO doing that with my next COS bag, which might be very soon since that suit is just so brilliant!

    Gorgeous! For some reason I am seeing Gatsby in the last image – it must be those platform loafers. In combination with the menswear inspiration, your look has a touch of that classic American 20’s bourgeois style. Normally I’m not a fan of that style, but with the Ivania twist, I love it!

  23. You look great, amazing outfit.
    Its also a great point what you said about how your clothing can look in different sizes!

  24. I’ve said several times (in previous post-comments) but I will keep saying it you got a unique style that would not go that well on anyone. You take my breath away with every outfit post.

    Super-inspirational look, as usual! I’m craving for summer white, just need the thermometer to go up a bit…

    I love the size of the shorts. I really despise too tight, too short shorts. These looks really timeless, like you said anyone of any age could wear them. Classic.

  44. I completely believe the fact with you. In the latest COS journal, there is a photoshoot displaying that also mature females can use their outfits and look ideal. That’s why I really like COS.
    And oh, I also think that this purchasing bag needs to be recycled in an other way! It’s so excellent looking as a lunchbag!
    Beautiful little look.
