Striping It Out: OOTD

I think I’ve mentioned this before, but let me say it again, I think stripes fall in the category of neutrals! I mean with so much of pattern-mixing in the fashion-world, stripes are the safest pattern to mix with anotherpatter/print…say polka-dots!

Personally, I love sporting stripes- be it a casual tee, a formal shirt or a sweater. Like the one I wore to work yesterday. Now, to be honest this sweater is my little sister’s, but you know how much I love wearing her clothes! I mean the best way to add new stuff to your wardrobe is to just borrow some from your sister/Mum and never return it back (hope they are not reading this)! Haha!

So coming on to the outfit- I wore this striped sweater with my trusted black trousers for work. I layered this outfit with a little sweater and a black tee, and added a chunky berry coloured scarf to the mix. The scarf has a super-soft texture and is dotted with little white specks and a lace border. Going with the pop of berry, I wore my berry pumps, which I think nicely pulled the look together. The brown of the bag added richness to the look. Overall, I was happy with this outfit! J
