Home and Away: Borussia Dortmund

Home and Away: Borussia Dortumund
Hi ladies! Today we're continuing our Home and Away segment and wandering on over into the Bundesliga. We realised the other day that we unforgivably haven't featured a single German team yet, so to start us off we're bringing you two outfits for last season's champions, Borussia Dortmund. We've definitely used the recently warm weather as the inspiration for both looks!

We're starting off with the inspiration for the third kit. As the third kit is completely white, we've incorporated some of the home colours to avoid becoming a walking advert for stain removers. Crisp, clean lines and angles are what this outfit is all about. We've put cutout black wedges and a cutout black top together with simple white shorts to give a twist to an otherwise simple (and quite frankly boring) ensemble.

Although this outfit is mainly black and white, we've accessorised with slight hints of yellow in the earrings and messenger bag while continuing on the theme of angles and lines with an octagonal spin on the traditional Russian wedding band and black and white striped bangles.

Wedges, H&M, £30;
Bag, Phillip Lim, £473;
Top, Hervé Léger, £403;
Ring, Boticca, £166;
Earrings, I Found a Secret, £270;
Shorts, Delia's, £22;
Bangles, Dorthy Perkins, £3

For our home (and away) kit inspiration, we've chosen a yellow romper as the centrepiece of this look. Yes, skorts totally give off the essence of a primary schoolgirl circa 1995, but in the words of Tim Gunn, the cut of this romper "make(s) it work." It's a flawless transition from dress in the front and romper in the back, and it won't pose much of an issue unless someone can see you from both angles at once. We believe the blazer is the second most important piece of the set, as it helps fade the line between sophisticated and fun, a necessary task with the accessories we've chosen to pair with this outfit.

Black booties may give off a trashy feel when paired with the wrong clothes, but we find they're a perfect fit in this scenario. With sunny earrings, a classy gold woven bracelet, and a crisp, sophisticated tote, this look is a fun one to wear to a casual lunch or out for a day in the shops, searching for the next perfect edition to your wardrobe.

Earrings, Kate Spade, £62;
Blazer, John Lewis , £199;
Booties, Filthy Magic, £90;
Romper, Dolce Vita, £70;
Bracelet, Mango, £20;
