What to Wear: CROSSWALK

CROSSWALK, the new sister event of DONT WALK is one of the newest events to hit St Andrews. With a new event it can be difficult to know what to wear so below is some inspiration to help you put together your own look.
CW 1 - prints


Usually when it comes to prints, I’d be suggesting that you stick to one statement patterned piece and tone down the rest of your outfit. However, this season, and especially looking at street style from London fashion week, clashing prints is the way to go. It can be daunting when you have two very different prints and you’re unsure of how to put them together but I would suggest choosing similar colour schemes to help the outfit flow better. Team with basic accessories and some confidence and this look is a winner.

CW 2 - textures


Using textures is a great way to add something different to your outfit without going as full out as clashing prints. Think metallic, velvet, snakeskin, embellished. Less isn’t always more with this, and especially at this event, don’t be afraid to be creative and put together an outfit you’ve always wanted to try but have never been brave enough to wear. CROSSWALK is about being expressive and confident and a great way to do this is through textures.

CW 3 - layering


CROSSWALK has been described as more casual than its sister event DONT WALK and with an emphasis on the casual, this look suggests a way to dress down some of your fancier pieces. Layering dresses over other tops such as t shirts or blouses is one of my favourite ways to do this. Wearing your favourite LBD over a plain-ish top, like the one above, lets you find a perfect balance between fancy and casual.

CW 4 - brights


Although summer is drawing to a close, it’s definitely not too late to still enjoy brights. The bright skirt and shirt in this outfit clash in a complimentary way, and the plain grey high-necked top lets you show off a statement necklace. I’m a really big fan of the polo or roll neck, they’re back this season and paired with a mini skirt can make for a really sophisticated look.
