Winter is coming here in Oz (not that the weather is co-operating – will it ever be cool again?), and I am hanging out for it to arrive. To tide me over these scorching days, I created this polyvore to remind me that winter and moody gothic clothing is just around the corner.
Start with the ruffled sleeveless blouse that was a trend from spring/summer as ruffles continue to be a theme for this coming autumn/winter. Pair with wide leg, dark rinse trouser jeans, a chunky heel, a stack of metal bangles and a sparkly clutch, and you are ready for date night or a night out with the girls.
Add in a dark velvet blazer, a structured tote, chunky silver ring, and a pair of oxfords and you are going to be the best dressed mum at the parent teacher night.
Swap out the jeans for a pair of black or charcoal leggings and the heels for a cute pair of ballet flats; throw on a knee length sweater coat with an open neckline that shows off the ruffles of the blouse; add in a sweet pair of silver studs, and grab a slouchy but roomy tote, and you are stylish but comfortable for the school run.
