Gingham print isn't something that I would usually go for - in fact, I would normally shy away from it - just because it's so different and, well, out there. However, on my lunch break from work I was wondering through a couple of shops until I saw it. The moment when I finally caved to the fashion trend, and it was this beautifully fitted two-piece from Ark Clothing. If you haven't already heard of Ark, then you should! Originated from Leeds (my hometown!) Ark is gradually expanding their retail chain and becoming more and more popular. They've probably been right up there with my favourite high-street stores for years, and I love how they stock such versatile and stylish clothing - but hate how they're so underrated! Fellow fashion bloggers and readers, go check out my worst kept secret! You can see Ark's website here. As I was saying - Gingham? It's definitely got a '60s vibe to it, and I always wanted to find the perfect two piece that wasn't as smart-looking as my Topshop co-ords, which you can read all about here. This gorgeous set, however, stood out from all the others that I've looked at - simply because of how it fits, (and looks!) and for £40 it's well worth the money. I can see myself wearing it with wooly black tights and my leather jacket during the colder months in the UK, so it serves pretty much all seasons....
My trusty chunky platform lace-up boots (phew, that was a mouthful!) are from H&M, (around £29.99-£35.99) but are sadly no longer available on the website but still seem to be in-stores!
I just think it looks super cool and flattering, normally I hate having my legs out, but this two-piece has given me a completely different mindset! After all, Summer is the time to show your pins!
What do you think to this Gingham two-piece set?
Would you wear it?
As always, let me know!
Lots of love,
