What I Wore: Moments in Monochrome

18th October, 2019

Monochrome looks are always a no-brainer. It’s always a sleek, sophisticated colour palette that’s a shortcut to a polished look. If I want a failsafe look that’s guaranteed to look on point it would have to feature black or white. I love playing with both shades, mixing and matching or wearing one hue from head to toe. It’s impactful and chic all at the same time.

I recently worked with Witchery on a few must-have spring looks from their new October Limited Edition collection and found some gorgeous pieces that will certainly fit the bill…

Look 1:

I love jumpsuits. They’re a great shortcut to a chic look and worked back with simple black accessories, it’s perfect for any dressy event at this time of year. A wide brimmed black straw hat and a structured top handle bag complement the look whilst still holding their own. Also it’s a great idea to go for comfortable shoes at any event where you know you’ll be milling around on your feet the entire time and I love the fact the black shoes feature a block heel.

Jumpsuit: Winks Knit Jumpsuit, Witchery

Hat: Verona Woven Sunhat, Witchery

Bag: Fleur Box Bag, Witchery

Shoes: Riley Heel, Witchery

Look 2:

A pair of wide leg pants looks chic and this pair with its silver polka dots is both playful and stylish. I always love a print that pops. Teamed with a black tank, it allows the pants to take centre stage. Paired with a sweet straw hat with bow detail and a structured top handle bag, these separates work beautifully together but can be worn apart allowing you to get multiple uses from just two garments.

Top: Rosa Square Neck Knit Tank, Witchery

Pants: Whinney Pant, Witchery

Hat: Florence Woven Sunhat, Witchery

Bag: Fleur Box Bag, Witchery

Shoes: Riley Heel, Witchery

Look 3:

Suiting is a huge trend right now and this particular set with its patterned shorts and blazer is a fun option. In this instance I wanted to work a few black pieces into the mix to provide some contrast and the black headband is right on trend. Paired with a classic bag and heels, it’s a look that’s sophisticated and a little bit different. For a light and airy spring look that’s also polished, this is a great go-to to keep in mind.

The 12 spring buys that will instantly make your look on trend

14th September, 2018

The one thing I love about welcoming spring? It’s time to ease my wardrobe away from jumpers and coats to lighter pieces, punchier shades and feminine prints and accoutrements. I think there’s something great about the feeling of slipping on a dressafter months of being rugged up and experiencing that first warm breeze that indicates the changing of the seasons. I’ve been mentally shopping for my spring looks for months now and I’m so glad the time has come to start snapping up a few key additions. Here are 12 pieces that will update your look, instantly making it spring-appropriate.

Gucci Ace low top leather sneakers

Want to liven up your trusty white sneakers? The classic Gucci Ace has had a starry makeover and it’s the ideal shoe option for the warmer days to come.

Balenciaga knife checked BB mules

The sharpest mules I ever did see! This classic Balenciaga style looks fun and fresh in a colourful check.

Gucci embroidered textured leather belt

I can stand by the versatility of the classic black Gucci belt but sometimes you just want to take it up a notch. The embroidery really makes this a fun, feminine addition to any outfit.

Katerina Makriyianni crystal earrings

The vibrant shades incorporated into these earrings make them the perfect go-to when you want to lift your look.

Staud Bissett bag

Staud is one of the it bag brands to know right now. Think playful designs and colours that are anything but ordinary.

Balenciaga BB Reporter XS mini bag

A bold accent accessory can instantly brighten up any ensemble, especially in such a vibrant marigold.

Attico floral tapestry brocade mini dress

The texture and detail on this dress is insane. Love the statement ties on the sleeves and its nod to the traditional suit silhouette.

Philosophy Di Lorenzo Serafini pleated skirt

A pleated skirt is one of my favourite style staples at the moment. The floral print on black is a sophisticated pairing that makes this piece an easy go-to for when you want to look polished.

Lemaire peplum-hem ribbed-knit wool sweater

We’ll encounter a few trans-seasonal days in the weeks to come so a neutral sweater will come in handy. Team this with high waisted pieces for a chic and flattering look.

Attico asymmetric hem floral print velvet peplum top

There’s something about velvet that’s immediately luxe, especially when it’s paired with an adorable peplum and asymmetrical neckline.

Grlfrnd frayed straight-leg jeans

Straight leg jeans are still very much on trend and this cut is flattering on most body shapes.

Staud Sweeny tulle top

The soft pink and the tulle make this ultra feminine top the perfect piece to pair with slightly edgier pieces. Pop it on with a pair of jeans for a dream combination.
