Who'd have thought it? One of the most random films of the 1980s produced a character so strange that everyone wants to dress like them for 2013... Odd. Say hello to the Beetlejuicers. That doesn't even sound nice does it? But it looks pretty good!

Stripes are bl**dy hard to wear, I'll be steering clear of the trousers as unless you have really slim legs you'll resemble a zebra crossing - but some of the blazers are awesome... Blair from Atlantic Pacific's skirt is a nice slightly-more-ladylike way of doing it too... I haven't bought anything yet, but think I'll give a jacket a go - will be putting it with black or very plain things otherwise I'd risk looking like a bus conductor / Chicago trader... (only Marc Jacobs seems to have managed to make it at all feminine) Here are my finds (and how much does the 20 quid H&M dress look like the £350 Marc Jacobs one?) ...
Jeans Rag and Bone, £99 / Dress H&M, £19.99 / Dress Marc Jacobs, £349 / T Shirt H&M, £7.99 / Long Sleeve Tee Oasis, £38 / Long Sleeve All Over Stripe Tee Mango, £22 / Warehouse Ponte Jacket, £75 /
Zara also have some beauties, like this jacket here from their newest collection. I thought the Rag and Bone jeans were a nice alternative to block stripes and are a lot more flattering - the black at the sides is a positive illusion! Coming around to this look...
