Earlier in the week, General Pants had an unbelievable "TOP IT OFF, TAKE UP TO $100 OFF" sale where many trans-seasonal items were AND STILL ARE heavily discounted. (Check it out here if you want to grab a bargain!) Top brands included in the sale are The Cassette Society, Don't Ask Amanda and Alice In The Eve. I myself jumped at the opportunity and bought a few lightweight knits to aid me in this "one-day-spring,next-day-winter" debacle us Sydney-siders have been experiencing. One of the items I picked up is this mottle knit from Subtitled featuring a line of buttons running down the centre on the back. I was immediately lured to it, not only because of it's mottle texture but because of the unusual positioning of the buttons and how it instantly added that "edgy factor". Here I have styled it with a delicate lace skirt, sharp preppy collar, dainty necklace and my chunky Dr. Martens. I have never been a girly girl. Feminine, yes! Tom-boy?....More so. So one thing I like to do is to combine the two different looks and create one that is "unexpected and more inventive". With my style icons being Alexa Chung and Chloë Sevigny, I like to play around, experiment and step outside the box. Quirky and eclectic, I like to mish-mash different textures and even surprise myself in the process.
What are your thoughts? Who are your style icons?....Do you like to change things up and create a look you wouldn't normally wear? Or do you stick to a fixed style?
Wearing: Mottle Knit (Subtitled via General Pants Co), shirt (Supre), lace skirt (vintage), assorted jewellery, backpack (vintage) and Dr. Martens
