The Model Me: Boho Bird autumn-winter 2017

The Model and Me: Boho Bird autumn-winter 2017

Nikki Parkinson Fashion, The Model and Me 25 Comments

Stylers, we’re officially in a new fashion season. Autumn-winter 2017 may not be here weather-wise but it’s on our radar when it comes to fashion and what’s in store now.

The tricky part is … how do we transition from summer to autumn without feeling like a Sunday roast in a pressure cooker?

The key, my fashion-loving friends, is loose and light layers. And incorporating a nod to a new-season colour.

This week’s Model and Me feature outfit from Boho Bird autumn-winter 2017 at Birdsnest does all that. 

Boho Bird is a label that offers plenty for those of us who love to channel a little bit of bohemian into our wardrobe style.

Let’s break this outfit down, shall we? Starting with the stunning lightweight viscose-cotton kimono or throw. The lace detail and three-quarter sleeves make it an easy add to a tee, cami or tank. Too warm for long pants? Wear with shorts or a skirt.

The tee is a statement in itself and you could definitely wear this on its own and still make an impact with this outfit. Simply add a long necklace. The front sleeves and back panel are bamboo viscose; the back body, polyester.

This blossom/blush colour is one of the key colours of the season. It’s a transitional colour that works just as well with white as it does with grey and black as we head into winter.

Finishing with the white leggings. Comfort plus style has long been my thing. These cotton/elastane pants fit that bill. They have a mid-rise, elasticated waistband with back pockets and stitching on the knee. There is a good amount of stretch, so consider going down a size.

    I agree with Jane. Looks awesome on you Nikki. I’m 163cm tall. Would that gorgeous top be too long on me. Ooohh and size 14 on the bottom so order a 12?

    • Kelly

      Jo, I am 162cm and have that top in another colour and I think its fine.

      • Jo

        Thanks Kelly. And the wonderful thing about Birdsnest is the amazingly easy return policy if it doesn’t suit!

        • Kelly

          Very true! The change room too has been a game changer!

    • I’m only 3cm taller than you. Yes try the 12 in the bottoms!

      • Jo

        Great. Thanks so much !!

  • jane

    thanks Nikki, I think the outfit looks much nicer on you than the model. I have been a big fan of Birdnest over the years and living in the country makes online shopping easy with great delivery, prices and amazing customer service. Not sure about the Boho look as long floaty tops tend to swamp me but I do like the pants.

    • Great to hear that Birdsnest helps with your online shopping needs! Floaty tops can be tricky – I like this one because it’s short at the front.

  • Elesha Burkart

    Oooh I’m loving the blush!

  • Lisa Mckenzie

    Gorgeous Nikki I am loving blush and pale pinks I think they suit most people Xx
