Denim A-line Skirt & Stripes | Classic Style

Denim A-line Skirt, embroidered shoes & Breton Stripes | Fake Fabulous

Denim and stripes are two 'trends' that aren't really trends at all!
They reappear season after season, year after year.

Yes, there are often slight tweaks to make them seem fresh and new each year.
But, we all know that it's the same basics that come back again and again.
You can't really go far wrong with a classic denim/striped top combination.

Whether you choose jeans or a skirt, denim and stripes go hand in hand!

Today's classic look is simple, pared back and almost minimalistic.
{Well, as minimalistic as I can manage!}
A classic a-line denim skirt... see it styled HERE, when I was trying to decide if it was frumpy or not.
Paired with an old (and I mean at least 20 years!!) slim striped top.
This top has been worn countless times and I pull it out year after year.
I just love feel and the cut.

A quirky necklace adds my personal touch, but any jewellery you love would work perfectly.
Flat embroidered pumps finished my outfit off with a nod to the current trends.
Simple really.
Classics are seldom complicated.

  1. Looking super cute in this outfit. I agree that stripes and denim are a couple you can't go wrong with!!!! Think my favourite is a slightly thicker stripe but I truly love your outfit on you.

    1. Thank you Judy! Yes, it's very 70's isn't it? .... even more than the maxi and heels. I'm trying to enjoy styling it more since I recently had it altered to fit! XXX
