Pick Of The Week ❤ - LFW Pringle



Love this piece by Pringle. A clever twist on their traditional diamond print, in matt and shine. 
Key for the season, a pencil skirt worn with a deep-V mohair jumper and a long scarf, complimented by a very simple collar-less, knee length jacket. 
Wear long socks and sandals - Snug fitting ankle boots, would give the same overall look. 
Deep dark tones of aubergine, nocturnal hues - could this be the new black for AW15?
