Style Dilemma: What to wear with a multi-colour skirt
Published 04/03/2013 | 15:14
I'm after some ideas for a fun and cute top to wear with a tweed skirt that is mostly black but has small specks of white, pink and grey. I'd like to wear it casually.

Few fabrics have enjoyed the same evolution of function and style that tweed has experienced over the decades, proving its timeless appeal. The past couple of seasons have seen tweed featured on everything from biker jackets to skater skirts and shorts.
With that in mind, you can afford to be a bit irreverent with your styling for a cool, edgy look. Channel some boyish charm and team your skirt with River Island's grey, cropped-sleeve jumper (1 €43) or H&M's oversized prism sweatshirt (2 €39.95).
Inject a touch of this season's sporty aesthetic with a must-have bomber jacket. River Island's black and cream mesh one ticks several trend boxes in one (3 €60).
Alternatively, clash your colours with Alwear's digital-print lips jumper (4 €35) and Penneys' slouchy yellow sports jacket (5 €15) for a seriously cool, casual look.
