Busty St Clair

Jacket: David Lawrence

Top: Glassons

Skirt: Eliza Parker

Pantyhose: Target

Shoes: RMK

Necklace: City Chic

 

This outfit was directly inspired by a sudden flush of girls on my Tumblr feed who were wearing their black and white striped tops with high-waisted black skirts.

It had never occurred to me to wear this top as anything but a layering piece beforehand, because I thought that the bold horizontal stripes might accentuate my already somewhat prolific frontage, but I really should have known better.

Actually, teaming it with my high-waisted Eliza Parker skirt gives a lovely curvy silhouette, and I don’t look overbalanced or particularly top-heavy at all!

I added a pale pink bow necklace, then threw my favourite hot pink coat over the top of it to add a bit of warmth and a lot of colour.

Wearing the skirt this high actually showcases my cute pantyhose as well – the scalloped edge the peeks out from under the hem is very finely detailed – it gives an impression of a cross between capri-length leggings, and a lacy petticoat. Odd, but successful I think.

  1. That is one amazing coat! The color is just perfect. I love this outfit, Lilli. The pantyhose is cute and sexy! I have never in my life seen anything this cute in the pantyhose department of Target. Did you get these while you were in the States? And you’re right, this top looks gorgeous with this high waisted skirt!

  2. You’ve inspired me to try a stripe top with a high waisted skirt I have that sits in my wardrobe because I can never quite find the right top to wear with it. Loving that David Lawrence coat.
