Hopefully by now you have seen my part 1 and part 2 of how to wear stripes. I showed you how to wear striped jacket and striped top and today I want to show you how to wear striped skirt. This is a final part of this series, but to be honest I wear stripes so much you will alway see me wearing them.
As I mentioned before it’s a very easy pattern to style and it looks very chic. Just always stick to the same colour palette if it’s something very colourful already. With a simple Breton top you can add another colour but with this skirt I chose same colours for the rest of my look. I actually wore this skirt already here and chose to bring out the Burgundy out of it, here I highlighted the pink.
This skirt is so versatile despite its many colours and can be styled many ways. I love wearing it and now I’m looking at these pictures it’s making me want to put it on again soon so maybe I’ll wear it tomorrow. It’s an easy A-line shape as well which I think suits most body shapes.
I hope that with my 3 different looks I’ve inspired you to wear more stripes. Unlike some other patterns they never go out of fashion and they are a fun print. Just keep the rest of the look simple. Choose any of the colours that are featured in the print for the rest of your look (in this case you can go for white, yellow, pale blue, rust, pink, Burgundy..) and you can’t go wrong. You might think this skirt is too colourful it would be difficult to style but it’s actually very easy.
Do you like stripes?
Have a stylish day.

The last few days in London have been amazing. It’s actually felt like summer and I’ve tried my best to spend time as much time outdoors as possible because who knows how long it will last. I love Indian summer and to be honest we’ve been very spoilt this year with the weather. But as lovely as it’s been it’s a bit tricky time to dress for.
Even though in the afternoon it feels like summer and you can get away with not wearing much, in the morning and evening it does get chilly. That’s why I tend to bring a sweater or a jacket which can be easily taken off. Transitional dressing can be fun but needs more thinking about.
We’re not at a stage any more when you can just throw on a dress and leave the house and I definitely rely on layering this time of the year. Some lighter pieces still work, like this skirt, that I bought at the end of the summer and feels quite summery, but can be also worn with boots and knitwear. I also love the colour palette that’s so fitting for this time of the year. But it’s time to start incorporating fall colours into your wardrobe (like rust and Burgundy) and also booties and heavier fabrics and items.
I have been stocking up on jumpers and have been layering them with other skirts and printed trousers. I love the combination of skirts and pants in lighter fabrics with a chunkier knitted piece. It works really well. In this case I put summery top underneath and just enjoyed afternoon in the sun. I wish all autumn could be like these past few days.
I’ve just had a week off work where I really wanted to concentrate on blogging (I know I’ve been slacking lately) but I managed to shoot a lot of content and I have a lot of autumn looks coming up. Autumn is very pretty and can be really fun to dress for and I’ve discovered a couple of new favourite colour combinations that I can’t wait to show you.
I will be also starting new series trying to show you more ways to wear one trend or a piece of clothing. I’m starting with 3 ways to wear stripes which is coming up next week. As you can see I love stripes and it’s such a fun print to wear and it’s one suitable for all year round. You may know that I don’t really follow trends and I prefer sticking to things I like and work and are more timeless. It’s better for our purses and the environment to wear clothes more than once and if you play with accessories and combine your outfits well you can have loads of fun with fashion and dressing. And that’s what’s it all about. Fashion is not serious and it’s there to be enjoyed.
This is my lost post for September (where has the time gone?). I am back to posting more regularly again and you can expect a fashion post on Mondays and Wednesdays and a beauty post on Fridays from next week on. I hope you will like what I have in store for you and I wish you a wonderful October.
What are your tips for transitional dressing?
Have a stylish day.
