It’s often fun to experiment with different textures and prints. And sometimes both amalgamate in perfect fashion such as this sheer top and skirt by Veronika Maine. This skirt is a definite statement piece—tulle, polka dots and pleating all work together to create just the right amount of drama to make it the focal point of any look.
I’m a big fan of matching pieces and this top in the same sheer fabric seemed an irresistible pairing. I love the sequinned collar (which can be detached should you want a different vibe to the top) which adds a bit of glam to the overall look. It’s also quite versatile in that I can layer it over a number of different tops which would then change its overall feel.
I was in the mood for a bold contrasting effect so I decided to wear a Veronika Maine white slip dress underneath. This helped the sheer black fabric from looking too flat and really helped lift the overall ensemble. As an added bonus I can also wear the slip dress on its own, which is a tick in the cost per wear box.
This makes for an ideal look for autumn as it adopts the darker hues of the cooler months; is the perfect opportunity to work with layers (a plus for for trans-seasonal weather) and has the kind of polished look that I associate with this time of year.
