the winter stripe

Almost Couture Manchester Fashion Blog

A label I’m currently loving is The Fifth, and this striped longline tee is possibly one of the comfiest things I own. Made from that thick, substantial stretchy jersey fabric which feels utterly expensive and is instantly flattering, it’s the perfect way to inject summertime stripes into a winter wardrobe.


t-shirt: the fifth | skirt: missguided | boots: boohoo | sleeveless duster: boohoo | fur snood: hobbs | camel coat: primark | bag: aspinal of london c/o mybag


I actually think this longline tee is supposedly a dress, but as this was a sample size small, it looks so much better as a t-shirt. I paired it with a khaki pleated midi skirt from Missguided and a sleeveless duster jacket from Boohoo – both of these were in the sale for under a tenner. I am such a bargain hunter…




My fur snood is one of my favourite winter accessories – I’m a sucker for anything fluffy. I love how statement it looks against this mid-length camel coat (even if it was from Primark. Shh – don’t tell anyone!)



These boots are so horribly uncomfortable, but I resolutely wear them in the hopes they’ll break in – plus they look pretty sassy on. Supposedly over-the-knee boots (whose calves are that short? Honestly), these come to my knees and look great with jeans, or with midi skirts like this one.


Let’s all take a moment and bask in the glory of the Aspinal of London Marylebone Tote that I’m holding here – it’s so utterly beautiful, it just had to be included in this outfit post.
