Who said black is the new black?
When all else fails, never forget – monochrome is still the coolest colour combo that never seems to fade from the fashion subconscious. An elegant way of opting out of Marmite trends you just can't muster, going all out black (or indeed, white) can have maximum impact. Using dominant silhouettes as your guide, get more bang for your buck with timeless designs that you'll love for a lifetime.
Filling your fashion coffers with elegant classics that'll see you through the seasons helps to avoid the mid-season no man's land between trend heavy hitters. Channel your inner Wintor with no-brainer minimal style combos that always exude a refined air.
A daytime go-to for the gal with one foot in tomorrow, keep it classic this season and embrace lean, clean, monochrome fashion style sensibilities with this back to black vertical ode to the classic stripe.
A 'steal her style' ensemble recreated from the front row hall of fame, this straight talking striped outfit adds a subversive twist to casual chic looks. Showcasing high-luxe essentials, the VAUGHAN silk Hepburn shirt takes centre stage, proving that basics are anything but boring! Oozing with a refined air of off-tempo European class, this light and bright VAUGHAN classic in Lion in Winter white adds an air of spring time irreverence to a sophisticated ensemble. Worn tucked into these striped wide leg pants, this stark balance of opposites invokes a classic regatta sport styling, blending old-school charm with new season showmanship.
Snapped at PFW, multi-line mash ups work in stark contrast to retro-inspired go faster stripes, re-instilling ladylike dressing to its rightful place. Worn with hot off the catwalk virgin white bags and perspex inlay pointed heels, striking white designs in flattering silk and tonal cotton prove that she who dares, wins!
Using this simple colour clash to elevate tailored designs to near-editorial elegance, geometric accessories created with surgical precision add a touch of urban appeal to a Riviera-ready ensemble. Perfect for work or play, tonal bedfellows like see-through acetate and bold detailed bags seen on runways from Lanvin to Loewe add a futuristic glamour to virgin whites. Take a quick course in micro-trends and master class your way into fashion's good books with these peek-a-boo pointed toe pumps, structured bow clutch bag and neo-noir sunglasses.
Keep it chic and contemporary, always opting for the finest colour fast styles; play with texture, materials and contrasting silhouettes as you connect the fashion dots this season.
