Shopping Online – has to be one of the most popular places for online shopping. Many a fashionista has spent her hard-earned paycheck on fabulous finds from ASOS, myself included. Well, not the whole paycheck but I have been known to get the credit card out when I find something interesting.

You may remember my graphic floral skirt purchased earlier in the year from ASOS. I wasn’t sure about it in the beginning and worried that it might be too form-fitting but I have fallen in love with that skirt. So when shopping for a peplum top, I found it hard to resist a new skirt too. Naturally, all of them were on sale. I say all of them, because I ended up with two peplum tops and a new skirt.

I love the “dark romance” trend of the skirt. It’s going to be a good match for my oxblood silk shirt. I’m also thinking my hot pink wedges and handbag can keep the look from getting too dark. Of course the pale pink peplum top works nicely too. I bought the black and white graphic print top to wear with something else but I think it makes for a great pattern clashing look with the skirt.

The “Dark Romance” Trend

Dark Romance Trend: I can’t wait to wear this skirt. The pink and oxblood colours with the black lace print makes it very moody but the white background keeps it from becoming too dark, which means it will work for spring, summer and autumn. I can think of about 5 ways to rock this skirt with pieces already in my wardrobe so be prepared to see a lot of it over the next 6 months.

Print Clashing Trend: I hadn’t expected these two items to go together but when I took them out of the packaging and put everything together to take a picture they looked right on trend with print clashing. My brain still is amazed that this would work together but it does. The geometric of the top is so different from the floral and lace of the skirt but the black and white ties it all together. Black heels would look great with this. I’m also wondering about coloured stockings and ankle boots in the autumn. Is it too weird to be planning autumn looks when we are barely in spring?

Over all I think my recent shopping online with has gone very well.

What do you think? Would you wear the geometric shirt and floral skirt together? How would you accessorize this “dark romance” skirt?
