I hope you are all having a fabulous 2016 so far. Today's outfit embraces Fall colours in the midst of Summer. As I am an Australian, obviously during Summer many of the other countries I find wardrobe inspiration from are in Winter. I often find it fun to play with Winter colours in Summer to break up the pastels and bold coloured prints.
I have paired a striped cross over top from Dotti with a faux leather pleated skirt from Valley Girl, and sandals from London Rebel. When styling this outfit I tried to create a look of effortless chic and simplicity. One of the keys to a simple look is multiple textures and simple patterns. The addition of leather to the outfit helps to add interest to the outfit whilst creating contrast in both the texture of the fabric and colour. A simple look should be chic and never boring, nor bland.
Have a lovely day beautifuls!
