Today I’m Wearing: Vivienne Westwood Gold Label AW10 shirt, Anglomania Kung Fu trousers, Tartan Meg Gillie Shoes from AW11, Worlds End John Bull hat, lips choker.

This looks takes the basis from the last Vivienne Westwood Inspirations post ‘Like Superman’ and tailors it right back up. In general ‘fashion rules’ the idea is to balance one oversized, baggy piece against something more fitted. A voluminous blouse with tight pencil skirt say, or a cocoon coat with sharp stilettos. Westwood however doesn’t do rules. For the SS03 collection the look was full on flounce, lots and lots of volume. Her trick to stopping the models looking overwhelmed by layers and layers of fabric was to keep the blouses off the shoulders reveling the slender decolletage and ankles.

Continuing from AW11 I kept the yellow tights clashing against the tartan shoes, added the grey baggy trousers and buttoned up the shirt but kept it off the shoulders.
