It’s time to get in line fillies! Every fashionista worth their Insta feed seems to be in the know that if you want your OOTD game to go faster – you need to earn your stripes. And the best way to do it? By nabbing yourself the freshest sport luxe offerings that will have you racing to first place in the style Olympics. And the best part? It needn’t cost the earth! It’s time to get to the starting line and click this way for some serious OOTD inspo…
Stripes…stripes…stripes! Whether it’s running down the leg of a tailored trew or dashed up the sleeve of a jumper – it’s clear to see that stripes are having their style moment. Scroll through your fave bloggers OOTD feed and you will see the straightest and sharpest lines cutting across their clothing. So I thought heck, it’s time to jump in line! And my first port of call to get my fix? It just had to be my perma-fave Lasula Boutique.
Lasula just has this natty way of delivering on trend in the most purse friendly way. What’s even better is that there always seems to be some kind of discount code offer on, so you can get the latest trends for even cheaper! So when I decided it was time to earn my stripes, I knew heading to Lasula was going to save me some serious cash.
To put my spin on the look, I decided to NOT go the uber easy route and opt for a tracksuit to get my stripe fix, but instead went a little more luxe. This woollen Red Stripe Detail Cropped Jumper nails not only the trend but also can be styled both casually and super smart. It would look super comfy paired with stripe joggers and Converse for a weekend jaunt, but just as good dressed up with a PVC leather skirt and over the knee boots for a night out. And I’m putting it out there…you could totally wear this for work! Simply style it with a longline black boyfriend coat, skinny black jeans and some ankle boots and the boss will be sure to give you fashion snaps.
For this particular OOTD, I was going shopping and then for drinks, so needed to create an outfit that blurred lines of OOTD genres. Yup, I had to deliver that impossibly hard holy grail of any fashionista’s forte – the smart casual look! I paired the jumper with my fave faux fur bobble hat, threw on my super shiny PVC ankle boots and lined up these Lasula Boutique Black Side Stripe Joggers to finish the look. Warm, snuggly yet cool enough for the hip Manchester bars in the Northern Quarter, this outfit has been my go to outfit for the past month, topped off with an oversized aviator jacket and slick of red lippie.
What I love about these joggers are that they have a flatteringly high waist, so look great with cropped jumpers and they don’t tend to sag around the old booty…or deliver obscene camel toe! There’s a good amount of stretch and they come up true to size (I opted for a size M). What’s fabulous is that they are a smooth, tighter fit, so they aren’t baggy like traditional joggers, so they can be both tucked into boots, yet are long enough in the leg to be worn with trainers. They are a great style multi-tasker!
So if you are wanting to earn your stripes, Lasula Boutique is where you need to make a straight line towards!
