Summer black

How do you wear black in summer ?
While some of you are going crazy over orange being the new black, for black has always been the new black and the only black… sorry to burst your bubble.  It almost seems strange to choose a black number on a hot summer day but guess what …sometimes you want to defy the normals.

image

Yes black is rather solid for summer “they say”… thats until you add some accessories and texture to break it up and prove them wrong

image

So from the head … a bob or cropped hair style means you need not worry about your hair getting in the way.

Keep your dressing simple and chic. This off the shoulder boat neck leotard is great for a Lil shoulder sexynessssss. … A must have for the summer plus it totally softens this look..

High waisted jeans go a long way in giving an instant and painless tummy tuck.

image

My tassle bag adds some much needed texture to this outfit.   Suddenly this all black ensemble has movement. Great for my festival fanatics.n

image

Finally  some killer heels. I have all the height I could ever require but the battle to be content continues.
I opted for cut out Sandals as no one likes sweaty feet in the summer. No doubt we stay on trend as caged shoes are a wardrobe essential this season.

image

Would you be seen in all black in summer.?  How do you make “all black” less grungy and more gorgeous.

Co-ordinate your wardrobe with “co-ords’

Have you ever put an outfit together and thought you were too matchy…. too coordinated. That perfect green dress paired with the green shoes and of course a green handbag topped with green accessories and you have created a monster outfit.🐉:D:D.

Well not anymore. This is the time to put your co-ordination skills to the test by giving the matching sets trend a go.
I think I pulled it off pretty well. Will be great to see you comments below👍.

image

Yes… in case you were wondering this is a set. A peplum top teamed with the matching pencil skirt.

I have to give credit where credit is due. This peplum top is cut to perfection and it fits almost pefectly on my tall build. Believe me I know a thing or two about how clothing should fit with almost ten years fit modelling experience. From the sleeve head to the neck line and the waist line seam is well positioned ( although moving it a few Cm south would be perfect👌).

image

image

Is it me or do I have a slimmer and longer silhouette in this outfit? Can not complain though, plus its Scuba fabric 👐👐👐

image

Am having a midi obsession and love that this shirt is just over the knee and for a non Tall item it’s a pretty good length.

Be sure to let me know your thoughts on my matching set.

From Skinnies to Wide leg

There are no two ways about it I live in my skinny jeans. But from time to time it’s important to move away from your comfort zone.

I am very glad that wide leg trousers have not totally died and I strongly believe they are making a comeback. I refused to threw out my wide leg trouser and jeans and I don’t think you should either… (advise from a hoarder).

I felt really ‘hippie’ in this paisley print palazzo trousers.  To top things off I rocked out in my tassel bag.

image
You can probably tell that I am NOT a visual merchandiser but I am quietly pleased with my improvisation skill here. Byebye studio light… hello fancy clothing rack.

Prints are taking over this summer 2015. The trick is to mix your printed items with bold colours as I have done here. Stay tuned for my take on prints. You will be amazed at the variety.

I said YES to a bit of fringe and some tassel on the top; in an attempt to bring back the 70s shake to this 21st century world.

I love the back slit on this maxi duster … it gives a cheeky peek of my palazzo trousers with every step.   It also give added movement to this cover up. All for extra fabulousness;).
The duster jackets are very similar to trench coats but made with much lighter fabrics so they are prefer for the spring and summer. The perfect ‘threw on’ to keep my skin covered and cool in the 45 degrees middle east sun.

Navy envy

I know am not alone in my love for navy.  I can’t quite explain it but something about this colour looks so royal… and ….rich;).

This is why most ladies would melt at the sight of a man in a navy suit 😍.

I was oozing navy in my all navy attire.
This midi slit dipped hem shift dress works wonders for am effortless chic look. Although not a tall garment the length is just right.

Delight in White

Without a doubt you too have noticed the white wipe-out trend.  It’s all well and good if you are a size 8(hiss) but when we have heard “White makes you look bigger” for years, this is not a trend that many will feel confident enough to follow.

In all honestly, while some colours can be more flattering than others, nothing makes you slimmer than to be Confident. And that means wearing and experimenting with colours and trends in a way which makes you feel comfortable.  That’s exactly what I did by adding some neutral shades to the mix.  Do not worry, I will be braving the total White Wipe-out trend very very soon.  Until then, delight in some white ;-D

I find that adding different gradients of white helps to break up the look.!

floral focal print

This spring, don’t just blend seamlessly into the background.

Be The Focal Point in a Floral Print.

Take a fashion stand with bold floral, petal prints.  With the different shades in this one dress, picking the perfect matching accessories was easy….  Actually I was spoilt for choice.

To go Gold

Can you tell I had fun shooting this look? Confidence is definitely amplified when you feel good

Not sure if ASOS know but the thin back heel on this shoe makes it special!

The side pockets on this dress is total handy. you can keep your phone with you at all times to capture those moments and of-course one or twenty selfies. ;-)

I am in love with the print, colour and general shaping of this dress.  It is flattering and #fashionedaroundmycurves. However, the cool 100% cotton fabric makes this dress slightly on the snug side.  On the brighter side you can be snugged yet cool???

This is the problem with being a woman … too much choice. Which combination do you prefer? Comments in the box below.
