Sequins and Stripes

H&M top (similar here), Asos sequin skirt, Lancel Premier Flirt Bag, Deichmann shoes, Forever 21 necklace, H&M bracelets, Dorothy Perkins ring, Essie Cute as a Button nail polish

For the past few weeks, I´ve gone a little bit crazy while shopping for striped t-shirts. The last time I checked, there were at least ten in my closet, in all the cuts and colors possible (from classic Breton stripe, through red and hot pink to yellow). To me, stripes are the most versatile pattern (as well as the easiest one to pull off). There are countless ways you can incorporate them in your daily outfits, whether you´re going for comfy or for chic.
As for me, I´m pretty much obsessed with sequins & stripes combo. It looks equal parts fabulous and classic, and it´s easier to pull off than it seems. The secret is to keep the proportions and silhouette simple: a pencil skirt and a classic long sleeved tee leave the spotlight to the fabrics and patterns without being overwhelming. Throw on a pair of classic pumps, a statement bag and a bunch of bracelets and you´re good to go! (of course, if you live in Austria, and there´s snow everywhere, you better take your coat with you!).
