Last week I was pondering my next blog to write and thought I would put together an outfit. When I typically do this I try to think of basing it around 2-3 colours maximum. This gives the look a continuity and a streamlined effect. The eye of the beholder doesn’t have to focus on ten different things when they glance your way.
I featured this gorgeous black and white wrap around, gingham top from Hello Parry, an Australian clothing brand really making their mark on the fashion industry. This top is called the ‘Anoushka’ top (so flattered!) and it’s a great piece to add to your wardrobe this Autumn and Winter. For the bottom half I choose a simple black denim mini skirt, opaque black tights and knee-hi boots.
For the accessories (and this is where I think the outfit pulls together) I chose a simple black velvet and pearl choker from Colette by Colette Hayman, along with the John Taylor Watches Bells design timepiece. A few carefully chosen black pieces keep this outfit interesting yet not overboard. For my handbag I went with this classic tote design from Colette by Colette Hayman. I simply adore the lock feature at the front. I think it gives this piece a very high-end look without a high-end price tag.
Essentially I am not a girl who spends an exorbitant amount of time putting an outfit together but I truly believe with a few keys pieces you can look extremely put together and ready for any occasion.
