However you describe it there is plenty of it this season so why not give it ago. I personally love it, it adds a rich textured look to any outfit. Team a plaid skirt with a plain wool jumper and you a classic but interesting outfit.
If you are going to wear a dress make sure you wear it with edgy ankle boots to stop the outfit looking too twee. Looking young for your age is always good but looking like a five year old isn’t quite so cool.
A shirt with jeans is always a good way to wear the look but be careful not to channel a lumberjack so team with skinnies and ankle boots.
This Red Valentino dress was the piece that sparked my interest this morning, I think it is gorgeous but it needs a pair of serious ankle boots to keep it edgy.
