How to Wear It - Irish Examiner - Oct 22nd

Step back in time with a one-of-a-kind vintage find.... Annmarie O’Connor shows you how.

Look 1
It’s not often you discover a gem like this original military jacket. A maxi skirt and t-shirt provide an uncluttered backdrop; while the bullet necklace adds some armoury.
Army jacket, 9 Crow Street Clothing €60
V-neck tee, American Apparel €24
Necklace, Forever 21 €7.90
Skirt, Annmarie’s own
Kurt Geiger boots, Brown Thomas €195

Look 2
This `60s brocade skirt was a total find! I love the sweetness of the textured mohair sweater and the ballet flats make it oh-so-wearable.
COS mohair sweater, BT2 €69.95
1960s brocade maxi skirt, Shotsy Vintage €18
Kurt Geiger ‘Lilian’ ballerina flats, Brown Thomas €155

Look 3
I had my alterations centre convert this tweed coat into a gilet by removing the sleeves. It makes for an ideal layering piece with an Aran cardi and sweater dress.
Tweed gilet, Oxfam Vintage €30
Aran cardigan, Penneys €16
Boots, Topshop €103
Dress, Annmarie’s own
