Stripe Series: Outerwear

Looking through my last few posts, I realised I had unintentionally worn stripes in each post so I thought I may as well make a 'Stripe Series'  where I'll choose to wear one striped item for each post (trousers, outerwear, top, shorts etc.) and this post, the stripes are on an outerwear piece. Patterned outerwear pieces in general may seem a bit hard to style, but the key is to keep everything else a block colour to avoid too much clashing (though sometimes it's good to break the farshun rules).

Today is the first day of Spring here in Australia and after too many months of wearing a multitude of layers I'm glad to be able to wear some more lightweight fabrics. Since Melbourne has a tendency to have sudden cool changes, it's not quite sleeveless weather yet so this anorak is the perfect option.

Stripe Series: Shorts

Before this whole culotte/boy-short trend, I recall the only shorts that I wore in the warmer months were my denim cutoffs in various washes and cuts and.. well that was about it, which meant full leg exposure most of the time. These culottes/shorts (call them whichever you like) by Toi et Moi are super comfortable, yet your legs still get to breathe and see some much needed sun after coming out of Winter hibernation. This tank also has this awesome angular bottom edge, but I decided to tuck it in to give a little shape to my body since I'm wear such a flowy coat.

Black Coat & Stripes

Top: Backroom, Skirt: Honey & BeauCoat: Zara (similar here),  Sunglasses: Karen Walker
Bag: Proenza Schouler, Bracelet: The Peach Box Shoes: ASOS (similar)

It's a bit late into Winter to finally find the perfect black coat, but better late than never! It's not too short or too long nor too casual or too formal-the coat is in a classic shape, which makes matching different outfits super easy. I've paired it with a striped top with a bit of mesh here and there from the online store Backroom to keep things from being too boring.

Crops Over Tops

Outer Top: BKRM cropT-Shirt: Bonds TeePants: Asos Wide Legged Trousers , Shoes: Country Road MulesBag: Proenza Schouler PS11 Bangle & Ring: The Peach Box

Wearing crops alone when it's far from crop top weather is not the smartest decision, but if you want to rock the look without catching a cold (or feel like trying something different), try layering it over basics T-shirts and button-up shirts for a more polished look. Not only can you wear that crop top you bought for your friend's party to more casual outings (I'm wearing one from the online store Backroom), but you can also mix and match it with what you already have in your wardrobe.

If you decide to try this look, be sure to leave a link in the comments!

Fluted Skirts

Sunglasses: Karen Walker Number One Shoes: Boohoo 

Since the last few posts have contained skirts, I felt I may as well go with the flow. I said once that I would never wear the peplum trend, but in my own defence this skirt is 'fluted' (well at least that's what I think it's called). When choosing clothes, I more often than not gravitate towards loose fitted items i.e. boyfriend jeans and loose T-shirts, but I guess structure is good once in a while; it keeps things interesting.
