Cold Spring EF Layers

Inspired by Angie's EF post, I layered some EF chocolate brown pieces. The brown are all thrifted or EBay and the bittersweet orange sweater is from a Rack sale. I would like your thoughts. Are these looks overpowering me? I usually wear the brown silk pants rolled up a bit in summer as the length is not the best. Should I have them shortened for wide crops? Is the cardigan too short. Is the orange sweater too long for me? Is the orange too high contrast for the dark brown?

    I think you look fine. Elegant as always. The looks are not overpowering you. To me, the pants look a little too long, but OK. :-)

    Shorten pants to wide crops. Wear #1 as the combination. Red tunic is too long for wide bottoms. Layered necklaces look SUPER CUTE. Sorted.

    Thank you, The Cat and Angie. Shortening the pants will be a great summer solution. I have a couple of sleeveless print tops that should work well with chocolate crops anyway.

    These looks are NOT overpowering.
    I think they look fantastic. All the gold is very nice on you.

    I have to laugh as I didn't see ANY of the things Angie saw initially, but she is so right about the pant and tunic lengths.

    Yes, to shortening the pants. I think the colours look good on you. And I love love love how you have layered those necklaces. Fabulous with the clutch.

    The trousers will look awesome cropped! Another 'yay!' For the layered necklaces.

    Angie wrote (with more concision and clarity) exactly what I was thinking.

    As always i love your outfits (chocolate brown, layering necklaces, shoe and clutch combo). I like the proportions better in your outfit than in the EF original inspiration.

    Love your necklaces. So glad that Angie has given advice on the perfect pant length.

    Thank you, dear stylish women, for your comments and guidance. I had thought I might wear these silk pants in cold weather with silk long johns underneath, but I never did. Cropping then to a shorter length will make them more useful. The necklaces..well I was inspired to create the large jewelery usually shown with EF coutfits. Confession: The longest "necklace" is actually a chain belt which is not in style right now.. I need to invest in some proper jewellery.

    While the tunic is too long for wide pants, I do think it would be perfect with slimmer pants.  It's gorgeous.

    Agree to crop the pants. 

    Nicely done!  You are so great at taking Angie's inspirations and working with them.
