Style Update: Stripes and oversized polka dots

Boden Stripes and Polkadots styling

Here’s the thing about stripes – I firmly believe you can never have too many in one outfit. Striped dress, striped coat, striped shoes and striped scarf – throw them all into one and I’m a happy stylist. Truly, there’s nothing more classic than a stripe. Ok, well maybe a bit of polka dot is just as iconic. So how about we throw in a mix of the two? That’s exactly what I’m doing here, for a truly casual run-for-the-papers ensemble, backpack included. Here’s the main style lesson – try mixing your stripes this season, ladies. Don’t be afraid to colour clash, just keep it horizontal and funky!

What I’m wearing:

Boden Rainyday Mac £119, Uniqlo Striped Top £12.99, Old Navy Rockstar Jeans $30

Boden Striped Flats £69, Boden Backpack £139
