The beautiful winter weather we have been experiencing over the last couple of days has basically been screaming at me to don a twin set.
While I love a matching set as much as the rest of the fashion conscous population I have been finding it hard to track one down that is of the right proportions for my body shape and the right style for who I am. Often, most of the twin sets available are paired with a short skirt or hot pants (Both which I wouldn’t be caught dead in) and a crop that is so incredibly short you may aswell have left the house in a bralet (also something I would never be caught dead in).
Last week I popped into Shona JOy HQ and chose a few of my fave pieces to shoot for the blog. While I was in there I stumbled upon the twin set I had been tirelessly searching for. A striped pencil skirt (below the knee, thankfully) and a triangle striped crop. I probably wouldnt ever wear the two together just on their own as I dont like to show midriff or cleavage, its just not me and completely a personal choice, but that is the beauty of fashion, it is so subjective and you can style it however you like. I decided to throw a white T-shirt on underneath the set and whaked on some cons and I was all set for a sunday out in the sun.
