The Advertiser - SA Weekend - - UPFRONT - WORDS KATE BOW­DEN

This au­tumn, the look is large and loose with lots of spots and stripes.

If we’re talk­ing the­matic cloth­ing, both polka dots and stripes are noth­ing new, my friend. Both have been around longer than the democ­racy sausage, and add far more flavour to your life than the afore­men­tioned meaty treat.

And this sea­son we’re not dis­crim­i­nat­ing, ei­ther. Take them big or small, spots and stripes should be added when­ever and wher­ever you can. The one im­por­tant part, though, is in the styling.

Make sure your piece is lay­er­able. This win­ter sea­son sees ex­ag­ger­ated lay­ers the thing. Baggy leg pant with loose knit over top or loose flow­ing dress, again with a roomy knit lay­ered over the top. Take for in­stance, this over­sized Kow­tow scarf that we adore – in the per­fect au­tumn pal­ette, it looks best fin­ish­ing off a pair of re­laxed pants and a gi­ant knit that could fit a friend in with you too, if need be. Slouchy spots and stripes, that’s what we’re talk­ing about.
