As my last outfit post showed I'm in the mood for all things colour at the moment and where better to seek inspiration than Burberry's SS14 collection? Their runway show was ablaze with all things spring, and gave everyone an idea on how to work with "head to toe" colour look with a mix of dresses and two pieces. What I loved most was that it also showed how to use both halves of a set with other things to give you maximum use out of a spontaneous trend purchase.
Topshop Lace Top, £38 / Topshop Lace Pencil Skirt, £60 / Victoria Beckham White Shirt, £650 / Paige Boyfriend Jeans, £255
I've spotted tonnes of girls out and about in Topshop's take on the look without having to spending in excess of £1000 (if you do have those kind of funds, click here and feel free to share)... Their lace pencil skirt and lace top combination looks fab together, but also work as really cool separates - paired up with the pieces you already own. Total win.
The skirt would look great with your denim shirts (particularly this one) but also with plain white fitted ones like the Victoria Beckham one I added in above. For the shirt, I'd put it with my ever faithful boyfriend jeans - my Paige ones are a favourite at the moment. All in all, I think it's a trend worth going for - you can wear the two together for a formal event and then separately for work and play! What do you think?
