Ways To Wear: Bold Stripes - Look 3


Look Three : Lace and Stripes

Where did you get it from?

This is the final look in my style challenge set by VoucherCodes and I chose to purchase a striped oversized lace t-shirt because it's something different. It's another sales item and cost £8.00! The material is lace which means the garment is a little see-through. I've layered up by wearing this collar vest top underneath, I've actually got three of these vests and wear it with almost everything. Although the t-shirt fabric is lace, it is still quite a versatile piece that can be dressed up or dressed down. I love oversized tops for their comfort. This pretty lace one will come in handy for those days when you feel a bit lazy but want to trick people in thinking you've made an effort! The hat saved the day as I was having a bad hair day! Couldn't be bothered to wash it today, thought I would just hide it under the hat! I was going to wear it with my shiny leggings but opted for my thick wooly thermal tights (Primark) and Topshop skater skirt as the weather turned cold again. I would also wear it with some skinny jeans and a blazer too. 

So, to summarise the How To Wear Bold Stripes style challenge; I was given an £80.00 budget by VoucherCodes to spend on clothes within an S/S 13 trend. I could style these with clothes I already had. I spent the total of £76.00 and got four items. If you missed the others, you can view Look One and Look Two here! Would love to know what you think and which one is your favourite!

  7. I love the way you styled this shirt - and I think it/you look gorgeous :) I have the same collar vest - it is one of the best purchases I've ever made and I'll definitely be buying more. I wear it for work, it's so much easier to pop a jumper over a sleeveless vest than an actual shirt! xx
