Pharmacist Patricia Pastor (46), who lives in Bristol and is originally from Bilbao, documents her outfits on Instagram. She is a neutrals gal at heart who loves belts, animal prints and layering. Patricia’s style is predominantly polished with a little rock ‘n’ roll. She remixes touches of tomboy with hard edge, British countryside and Western style.
“If I look back, I don’t think my style has changed much over the last few years. I like following the current trends, but adapting them to my style, to which I am always loyal. I would define my style as something between classic and casual. I like wearing versatile and comfortable clothes, mainly in neutral colours, something you can wear on a daily basis and that you can combine to create multiple outfits.”
This is a marvelous example of the browns and black rendition (4) in Angie’s Browns with Punch outfit formula. Patrica has created a column of black by tucking a black top into black skinny trousers with black belt. The trousers are tucked into rugged knee-high boots that fit the cosy casual vibe of the look perfectly. Her mid-thigh jacquard-pattern cardigan in various tones of brown and cream complement the boots, and adds softness to the column of black. The studs on our blogger’s small bag add subtle texture and shine. Finally, gold-toned jewellery and gold-trimmed sunnies bring warm polish to the look.
Patricia is a neutrals gal at heart and happily switches between light and dark neutrals. Here she’s rocking the light tones with a chic polished casual look incorporating a column of cream. Our blogger has paired a cream turtleneck with dressy full-length straight-legged trousers. This elongates the body by emphasizing the vertical and eliminating horizontal lines across the middle of the body. Adding pointy-toe white booties that are low contrast against the pants has the same effect. The camel trench is a Modern Classic that looks beautiful with the creams and with Patricia’s brown hair. Her unique satchel with patterned centre panel and handles adds visual interest and extra polish.
What a delightful nod back to the ‘80s this is! Patricia is wearing baggy light-wash jeans with an on-trend high waist. Tucking the sleeveless high-necked top lengthens the leg line. The brown belt with turquoise detail emphasizes our blogger’s waist and adds visual interest. The fitted top and belt combo also reins in the volume of the jeans. White converse bookend the top and play up the Sporty Spice tomboy vibe of the look. Patricia’s white clutch and watch, and bright red nails add casual polish.
Patricia adores animal patterned items and built this dressy outfit around an elegant snakeskin-print skirt. Tucking a fitted black turtleneck into the skirt and adding a black belt streamlines the look. Our blogger then adds tall black suede boots with a pointy toe and refined heel. The boots are a narrow fit on the calves which works well with the flouncy flare of the midi skirt. Adding a black leather moto jacket is trademark Patricia. It dresses down the look while playing into the hard-edged rock ‘n’ roll that she loves. Her black leather satchel also fits this aesthetic. Large hoop earrings, oversized sunnies, big pendant, bright red lippie and Patricia’s wavy locks juxtapose the hard-edged part of the look.
Occasionally Patricia likes to wear bright colours, and this red trench is just so fun. Pairing the tailored trench with a black turtleneck makes the cheerful red pop even more. Combining the black top with skinny light-wash jeans also lightens up the look. Rolling the jeans shows off her black sneakers that bookend both the top and Patricia’s dark hair. The white soles, together with the subtle white detailing on her structured bag, her silver earrings and the ornate silver detailing on our blogger’s black belt bring more lightness to the outfit. To finish off the look, Patricia wears a silver necklace over her turtleneck top — a combination reminiscent of the ‘60s that feels completely fresh again.
A neutral look in shades of camel and cream with lots of visual and textural interest. Patricia’s camel sweater with avant-garde shoulder detail and eye-catching horizontal cable-knit pattern is the star of the show here. She’s paired it with high-waisted, relaxed fit cream jeans, and faux tucked the sweater which lengthens the leg line. The other eye-catching element in this outfit are her light brown snakeskin booties that add maximal visual interest and a touch of Western style. The studs on Patricia’s suede clutch in a complementary darker brown add texture. Once again, our blogger is wearing a necklace over her sweater (it’s signature Patricia). This time it’s a thick gold-toned chain necklace that works well with the rest of her jewellery and sunnies. Finally, wearing her hair up lets the design of the sweater shine.
