Monochrome is in !

Cardigans, colour blocked dresses, patterns and prints, basic little black garments – This Trend is absolutely rocking it – It’s everywhere.

So where do you go from here ?

First of all you bring back the beautiful plain pieces in your wardrobe – yes like that basic tee and every legging you always wear..

and second of all you read this and be a little inspired for your next outfit.

Lucky for you I’ve included a variety of pieces and even linked them in this post.

So if you like.. you buy = ]

Let’s start off with a few dresses.

image

Piper Lane Colour blocked Dress

Colour Blocked Black and White dresses are so hot Right now !

There are a number of body con styles and two-in-one styles too.

Contrast darker side panels and/or a darker bottom to slim down the figure.

image

If you want to go for something with a print you can just keep in mind body proportions and print scale.

If you are more fuller on the top go for something with a small scale print.

If you don’t have much of a top you can pull off larger scaled prints.

or you could even take out the little black dress again – it always saves the day… or should I say night ?

image

If you are more of a 2 piece person the beauty of this minimalist trend is that you can wear the most “plainest” garments and you will still be perfectly on trend.

image

Wear a plain top like this one from Zara for a sleek day to night time look or add this crisp white waistcoat to sophisticate your everyday casual look.

image

Black and white printed pants are really popular this season too so it makes it that much easier to find.

image

Harem pants are always comfy – I’m sure everyone has a pair or even a pair of plain leggings.

image

High-waist shorts are a great addition to any look as you can wear them with plain black or patterned stockings or if the weather isn’t too cold –just by itself.

image

There are also a number of skirts in different cuts and prints.

image

Nookie – Slim fit mini skirt with a black and white sequin animal print.

image

Stripes are also very on-trend. This pencil skirt is from Portman’s. It has a very bold striped print and black contrast side front panels.

The plain black tee

image

To add some excitement to your basic black tee go for something a little edgy or different.

The above style has turned up cuffs and an asymmetrical hem – perfect when paired with some contrast wet-look or printed leggings.

image

something a bit more extreme… ?

image

If you follow more the grunge, urban style of fashion perhaps some white leather ?

One Teaspoon’s Bowie Leather Jacket is a great essential for the wardrobe.

image

Classic Biker style with a asymmetrical zip detailing and zip pockets.

V-shaped croc leather detail on the back – makes you Fall in love ❤

Label Three of Something have also nailed it with these two lovely pieces.

Both very wearable for a casual day or night time look.

Battalion Bomber Jacket from label Three Of Something ( above)

Samurai kimono also by Three Of Something(below)

and lastly as I always say… There is a Trench for every trend and this is it…

image

Traditional trench style with a striped lining twist.

The great thing about this jacket is that it is not only completely relevant to the season and the trend but you can definitely mix it up with your primary blues and greens for later on.

Such a beautiful wearable piece – A Must-Have !

 

For Jewellery Coco Liberace always have it spot on with their Chunky Gold and silver necklaces and wrist wear.

Bumping into Alannah Hill

Meeting Alannah Hill

The New Semester has begun with Men’s and Womenswear being our main focus and project before our major and final semester !

What better way to explore different designers collections and tastes this season by hitting up none other than Sydney’s Westfield.

The day began with ZARA, just casually hanging around in front waiting for the class to arrive.

In the distance this Sparkling Tall Lady Approaching, her hair and makeup magnificently done with a lovely floral printed skirt that swept the floor – It looked like her ? Could it be ? Really ? OMG it actually was ALANNAH HILL !

Following her around in Zara wondering whether we should approach her like annoying paparazzi clogging up space to ask for a photograph. An excited Bunch we were !

Finally I decided that I just couldn’t possibly leave the store without approaching her so I did.

She was one of the nicest designers I’d ever Met ! When we were told by Zara’s staff we couldn’t take photographs inside their store she even offered to drop her shopping and for us to come outside and take photographs before commencement ! How lovely was that !
