dkmtl 's Thoughts:

It’s funny where the inspiration comes from to pull an outfit together. Sometimes it is a glimpse of colour mixes, other time it could be a particular silhouette. As fas as inspiration goes, Burberry is an ever ending source. Ever since the arrival of Christopher Bailey in 2001, Burberry has reached soaring heights. He has turned an outdated English gentry label into a contemporary fashion leader. Beyond the ubiquitous Nova check, which now figures mainly as an embellishment, Bailey tends to work in monochromatic neutrals instead – black, brown, and gray for fall; white and khaki for spring—but adds unexpected flourishes such as tiers of feathers or ruched chiffon.

Fashion critics have deemed Bailey’s image overhaul of Burberry brand a success. Style.com’s Sarah Mower writes that turning “the frumpy old country lady’s Burberry into a fashionable thing” is “something of a cause for national pride in Britain.” The public agrees: Burberry’s profits have skyrocketed since Bailey’s arrival.

I am particularly fond of the last Burberry Prorsum Fall collection (which inspired this outfit). Imbued with skillful cuts, it is a play on volume and texture: brown and black striped pencil skirts, paisley tulip skirts, African prints and a touch of military chic.
