outfit

two and two

Wearing: Sessun green coat, Elm stripe knit, Vanishing Elephant dress, Topshop lipstick tights, Minimarket ankle boots, Gorjana bird necklace and Keepsake clutch bag. {Photos: Rowena}

To me, stripes and polka dots are classic, must have patterns every girl should own in their wardrobe. They seem to never really go out of fashion and are a failsafe and easy way to experiment with patterns, without having to dive into the unknown realms of crazy geometrics or kaleidoscope prints. I’ve never really thought of wearing the two together as I often like to clash my stripes with florals. However the other day I just felt like being simple without being too simple, so I decided to put the two together and really, I don’t know why I didn’t sooner. I love how it’s got a preppy feel about it but also how it has a clean and crisp appearance. And with my stripes and polka dots on clothing as comfortable as this knit and dress combo, I could really wear these together forever.

    Stunning look! I love how you pair stripes and polka dots together – they DO make a crisp and preppy look :) Love your coat as well – the color is so different than your usual neutral coat!

      thank you kesly, funnily enough i don’t believe i own any neutral coloured coats just yet. for some reason i always like mine with a pop of colour given how dreary it is in melbourne every winter :-)
