Back in Black

Posted in There's {a} Way

back in blackHello strangers! Apologies for the long absence! Moving and work and life seemed to overtake us for a bit. I have been so inspired of late by Carrie Mulligan’s simple and chic red carpet looks as she promotes The Great Gatsby. Hence my interpretation for a day of brunch and a stroll through Hampstead Heath on a lovely bank holiday.  When wearing a monochrome outfit an easy way to add a little visual interest is to play with textures and shapes. Pairing a harem trouser and a voluminous top with a structured jacket creates a  balanced contrast that pulls the look together. Cheers!back in black back in black
