Sporty stripes and lace

In my last post, I showed you how I made my new sweater. Now it is time to show you how it looks on!

Since the sweater is very sporty – which also happens to be a major trend for SS 2014, so hurrah for the perfect timing of this DIY! – I decided to play down the sportyness by wearing it with a white lace skirt and gold jewelry. I love how well the sweater and the lace look together – in fashion, opposites are normally the perfect match!

The gold jewlery adds some elegance, while it also plays up to the nautical trend, where gold buttons and brass fixtures are prevalent. Comfy white Converse adds further sportyness, while the cognac handbag brings a touch of a warm colour to the outfit. All in all, I’m pretty happy with this slightly glammed up nautical look!

Ship o’hoi!

  • Really like this outfit!

    • Thanks! I didn’t get to wear this sweater much before I had to pack it away for the move, but I’ll have to make up for it in the spring. Now it’s just too cold!
