Today’s look is a transitional basics outfit including a green striped top.

Striped tops are great basics to have in your wardrobe especially at this time of year as you can wear them on their own or layered under knitwear and coats. I am collaborating today with Tulchan where this top is from. They have just launched the new AW17 collection and have a great range of tops and knitwear. I really love this striped top. It’s such great quality and is double layer fabric which is ideal for the cooler weather and gives a luxurious feel.

I paired the striped top with my dark wash jeans and my burgundy ankle boots. I added a pearl wrap bracelet and to finish off the look, I added a green necklace and a burgundy scarf to my bag. This makes it all look a little more put together and stylish!

I hope you like the look and let me know your thoughts in the comments section below.

    I adore stripes, but I find them very hard to get right. I am probably very picky, but I don´t want them to be too narrow, not too wide. I prefer red over black, dislike blue on myself… You get the problem.

    This is why I only had one top and it has ripped this summer.
