Fly The Flag For Kate & Wills.....



...and celebrate this day in style! I know, this patriotic stuff can sometimes be a little over the top and kitschy, but to rise to the occasion, I think once in a while it's ok. At least these tops have a cute cut and a sweet motif. The bags have a vintage and worn print and look. Nice! All items available at TOPSHOP.

Is it a bermuda? Is it a skirt? No, it’s a culotte! The divided skirt, or „Hosenrock“ as it is called in German. Not easy to pull off you are thinking? Then think no further. Actually they are quite easy to wear, and flattering if your thighs are not stick thin. Just make sure they are knee length. Wear them with wedgy Espadrilles in summer to add some height and tuck in a nice top if they are high waisted like at Sonia Rykiel. You will receive instant quirky style points from your fashion loving friends. Plus, they are easy going on a bike!!!

Collars are a microtrend and are currently popping up all over the fashion world. Peeping out from underneath a sweater it's a super cute and edgy style updater, with a vintage feel to it. If you don’t like the bulk underneath your sweater, than pop on just the collar, as seen at ASOS.com, in leather, crochet and lace. I think they've got the best selection. Or make one yourself out of an old t-shirt or mens shirt with a stiff collar. It's an instant style revitalizer to old plain t-shirts and sweaters.

I love Breton striped tops, my cupboard is bursting with them. Though I do think, they have been a bit overexposed lately. So, how about wearing them on your bottom half, as a skirt for a change. I think these stripy knee length stretchy ones from TOPSHOP.com are super! Choose the pink and navy punky one or the nautical striped one in classic navy and white. Team with a plain t-shirt or go all nuts with stripes on top, too, as seen at Prada!
