Today’s Wear it Two Ways is all about an item that I had been looking for for quite a while before I found it, and this post illustrates why – because I knew it would have so much versatility.
The skirt is from Whistles – first spotted in the SS13 preview at The Savoy that I attended at London Fashion Week last September. I picked it up in the recent sale and there are still some around if you like it. I love the contrast darker blue waistband, sporty style and pockets. Who doesn’t love a pocket?
The first time I wore it was almost as soon as I bought it – We headed across to see my sister in law and niece to celebrate their birthdays. I wnated to dress up and look nice but with young kids around needed to be a little bit practical too, so opted for a striped tee (GAP) and flats. This was a few weeks back too when the weather was super-cold, so tights were obligatory as was my trusty parka. A chunky necklace upped the ‘party’ factor.
More recently I was out for dinner and tried it with another top from Whistles, with cut out lace inserts across the shoulders. It didn’t look quite right left out even though it’s a structured T-shirt style, so I tucked it in and went for a more streamlined look with animal print courts and my favourite sparkling box clutch.
The shoulder detail would have competed with a necklace so I went for chunky drop earrings and neon bright nails to finish it off.
