No, this is not a surf-related post. When I see Elle and Vogue run “surfer-inspired” or “scuba-inspired” looks, I want to barf. There is just no way you will con me into sporting anything that looks like diving gear in real life. And scene. The inspiration for this post instead stems from lovely chinoiserie and ginger jars, which seem to be cropping up all over the place on Pinterest.
I would pair it with these stunning denim platforms (Rupert Sanderson, $590, Ssense):
Finish with a boxy white purse (Milly, $395, PiperLime):
The perfect little accessory? This fun little chinoiserie iPhone cover ($39, Zazzle):
I might finish with this ultra-covetable YSL ring (available through e-consignment shop Style Sequel, which one of my lovely readers owns! — bid now before it escapes!)
For something in a brighter color palette, consider this amazing turquoise dress ($295, Built By Wendy):
At the risk of being a little matchy-matchy, consider this roomy tote ($825, Boyy):
I might finish with some of these chunky bangles by Flutter NYC ($185 and $190, Flutter NYC):
I’d finish with a funky pair of printed flats ($135, J. Crew)
Kind of amazing with these chinoiserie-inspired tootsies ($885, Net-A-Porter):
For just a pop, consider this carry-all from DVF ($98, Cusp) — perfect for the gym or beach — or these unbelievable Prada tootsies ($445, Bluefly). I’m not normally one for kitten heels, but how darling would these look with some skinnies and an oversized white blouse?
Or, the contrary — go whole hog with this darling shift ($98, Dalaga)!
