Have you ever tried to pair tartan with stripes? You will be amazed at how well they work together, especially if the colours are complementary. Today in Melbourne it was 16 degrees, so it was the perfect excuse for me to wear my stripes and tartan combo, since they are both made from wool. My skirt is getting a tad too big for me now, as it is meant to be worn higher on the hips, but I love it just the same. The sad thing is that the Swedish designer no longer makes skirts. Instead she has opted to specialise in outerwear!! Shame because I wouldn't mind another one in a different colour spectrum!!
Have fun mixing your patterns! I'd love to hear about your special pattern combinations.
I'm wearing: wool tartan skirt by Swedish designer Maria Westerlind, navy & cream striped cashmere sweater by Australian label Bezoar, black leather buckle boots by Paul Green, Austria.
