I told you I’m all about the suit at the moment. And with it being the last day of Fashion Week for me I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to wear this beautiful Alexander McQueen blazer. The cut, the fit and what a colour! These Maggie Marilyn pants have a slightly sporty vibe about them and made the ideal contrast piece to the structured, polished feel of the blazer.
When wearing such a bold, vibrant colour I think it’s a good idea to keep accessories quite pared back. I kept to a simple black quilted mini top handle bag by Dior to carry all my essentials and Christian Louboutin bow heels to give me some additional height (this is also a must when wearing wide leg pants). Small frame Poppy Lissiman sunglasses rounded out my look and helped marry the sleek and fashion forward look I was going for.

I wore something quite classic yesterday but today I wanted to mix it up a little. My look today is a little edgier and all about playing with different textures. Usually my outfits start with a single piece and in this instance it was all about the cropped Prada denim jacket. The feathered collar really upped the glam factor and seemed so fitting for the occasion. I also loved mixing relaxed denim with the dramatic nature of the feathers for a truly striking centrepiece to my look.
With such a statement piece already in place, I thought I could take it up a notch even more by opting for a black polyurethane Georgia Alice skirt. I thought it provided the perfect contrast piece to the softer and more playful nature of the jacket.
As far as shoes go I decided on simple black heels to temper the dramatic nature of the rest of my outfit. But I think you can always afford to have a little fun with your accessories! With the current trend towards sunglasses with smaller frames I gravitated towards these Poppy Lissiman sunglasses. Sharp with a slightly futuristic vibe I thought they went perfectly with the rest of my ensemble. My trusty Gucci Dionysius bag can always be called upon to add a fun feature to any look and in this instance it was the perfect fashion full stop.
A white shirt is an enduring wardrobe classic simply because it’s so versatile and looks great without having to do much at all. It always looks polished and classy. So it stands to reason that a white shirt dress would fall into the same category. There’s something about the structured style of a shirt dress that makes it look elegant but there’s also scope to have a bit more fun. This Rebecca Vallance shirt dress is one such style. Whilst it still maintains the button down, collared silhouette of a traditional shirt, it also features beautiful ruched, bell sleeves that give it a more fashion forward feel.
While a shirt dress can easily be quite casual or dressy, I chose to go down the slightly more dressed up route with this particular ensemble. Against crisp white, black and bold pops of colour work equally as well so I decided to go for both! In this instance I opted to wear my favourite, go-to Alaïa studded heels and a bright and fun, Poppy Lissiman clutch. The red metallic and the eye print really adds some energy to my overall look and is a definite talking point. Simple cat eye sunglasses with a vintage feel help round out my ensemble and give it a touch of glam.
