Textures and Stripes with Mossman

Styling formal pieces for daytime.


I can safely say that this is one of my favourite outfits, ever. Melbourne label Mossman have absolutely blown me away with their latest campaign, featuring their usual feminine silhouettes with just a hint of edginess (just the way I like it!). The midi trend seems to be taking over my spring wardrobe over the last few months, so I couldn't help but drool over this dramatically textured skirt (metaphorically speaking, of course); so much so that I've worn it a few times already (see here).

The casual striped crop top tones down the more formal attitude of the flared skirt without losing its luxe quality, which makes just that little more daytime appropriate. This is definitely a great example of mixing dressy and casual pieces, which allows formalwear to become smart daywear. Who says you can't wear a cocktail dress during the day anyway? I styled the outfit with two of my rekindled loves; statement gold accents and a bold lip, which add a little oomph to any ensemble.

Is this an outfit you'd wear during the day? Or would you prefer to see it after dusk?
