Stripes On Stripes

Fedora - Primark || Coat - c/o Missguided || Dress - Topshop || Boots - River Island via ASOS || Bag - Primark

It's seriously cold now in the UK and I'm so happy this fluffy coat is in my life! When I thought about how I'd style this coat I was thinking about keeping everything really simple because it's such a statement piece, it's a huge monochrome ball of fluff so I didn't want to go crazy by adding colours and more prints. With that said though, I spotted this dress in my wardrobe and thought I'd give stripes on stripes a go and I like it!

I really like how it looks; I don't think it's a pattern overkill as both prints are technically the same, apart from the width of the stripes but I think that's fairly easy to overcome. My friend who took these photos said I look very "Made in Chelsea" in this outfit haha, I think it's the fedora.. the only times that's mentioned is when I wear one, so must be a hat thing. I think I'm going to get a lot of wear out of this coat, but more so when I'm in London - I feel that everything is acceptable in London. I took these photos at university and it isn't the first time that someone stops what they're doing to watch me whilst I get my photos taken and it's so embarrassing! I feel like Londoners are more used to it and just ignore you as they walk past, not here.

What do you think of pairing similar prints in one outfit?
