As you may have gathered, I’m rather partial to paisley. Now I know technically speaking it was AW12′s “it” print but given the fact this motif has been been beloved by Western culture since they pinched it from Persia in the 18th century I don’t think carrying it over from one winter to the next could exactly be considered a crime.These bad boys entered my wardrobe as one half of a Topshop trouser suit I simply couldn’t resist last Autumn. I gave the look its first outing during London Fashion Week SS13 where it proved one of the most street style snapped ensembles I wore all month! I was then presented with the problem of how to ever donning the pieces again without it being ridiculously obvious that I was re-wearing. After all, a paisley trouser suit isn’t exactly shy and retiring now is it? I’m proud (I think?) to tell you that I’ve managed to give both components a couple more outings since then. The jacket, I whipped out in the midst of blizzard nemo during New York Fashion Week in February. I teamed it with ankle boots, a burgundy corduroy skirt, denim shirt and black bow neck detail (click here for a reminder). This whole denim shirt/paisley print thing obviously struck a chord because when I decided to unearth the suit’s bottom half some nine months later, I turned to my trust Whistles number yet again. Paired with pointy metallic shoes (this season’s “party flats” dontcha know), camel coat, statement necklace and patchwork satchel I thought it all looked pretty snazzy. Admittedly my feet where very cold but I never bloody learn, do I?
