This outfit was a total accident. I’d planned on wearing the shirt and skirt together, but the mustard roll neck? That was totally unplanned. Truth is, when I picked up my ASOS parcel and threw on the outfit to check if it looked how I imaged it would, I was too lazy to take off the mustard top first…
So, a very happy accident. Mustard and burgundy are not two colours I’d put together, really. Yes, they look great together in this Autumn outfit, but that’s within a striped pattern. I love how it looks peeking out from under this gorgeous snake-print shirt from New Look.
The burgundy faux leather skirt is my favourite piece from this outfit, though. I’ve already worn it three times and I haven’t even had it for a week yet! It’s from Bershka, which has quickly become one of my favourite brands. It is a Spanish brand, but thankfully it is available on ASOS. While I was in Barcelona over the summer I bought far too many new pieces of clothing from there. they’ll definitely be making an appearance on here soon as I just love them!
Anyway, back to the skirt. I always see faux leather A-line skirts that I love but because of my body shape, they never seem to fit right. I normally have to go up a size for my hips but then they are too loose around my waist and the front slips around to the side while I’m walking. Not a good look at all. This one, however, is perfect. It is just cut perfectly for my shape. It is also such a beautiful Autumn colour, too. They have it in black too, which I definitely think I need. Black would be a basic, right? Perfect with ankle boots and a cosy jumper, or dressed up with heels and a sparkly top for a Christmas party.
Hopefully, I’ll come up with more accidental outfits! Have you ever come up with unintentional outfit combinations that just work really well?
