Like most women I probably have way too many black skirts, but then I think, who cares? Has the black skirt ever gone out of style? Nope. It’s such a versatile piece for year round wear, and as Sydney’s been boasting hot afternoons in spite of winter’s lingering mornings, versatile pieces are a must. I also love pieces that I can pair back with basics and still look styled. The quilted texture and studded details of this VIPARO mini achieves exactly this, it’s easy wearing all year round.

Oversized shapes can be difficult to wear, you need to balance them or you’ll look like you’re being eaten by your outfit. The cropped tee is great for this, especially when paired with culottes as it breaks up the pieces by showing a little skin – and a little skin can go a long way when done tastefully.
