Fashion, What I Wore

What I Wore: Brighten Up

12th October, 2019

It was another day of reporting duties for 7 Racing today and it called for another vibrant look. I tend to incorporate a little colour into my outfit whenever I’m on camera so this Rachel Gilbert dress fit the brief perfectly. I love the unexpected contrast of pink and orange in the houndstooth pattern on this mini dress. And let’s not forget the sequins! I’m all about a long sleeved dress right now as I think it looks elegant and modern and the style helps to make sequins a little more day time appropriate.

It can be tricky to find the right colours to work back with such a distinct colour palette so I played it safe with neutral pieces. A white headpiece by Nerida Winter and small structured Bulgari bag were able to work back with the dress without being overwhelming. I find anything in white can be complementary whilst still being able to hold its own. I wanted to wear heels with a unique design and these Scanlan Theodore pointed slides were the ideal option—the perforated effect gave them a point of difference and an edgy feel.
