Good morning, fashionistas!
Today I’m going heaven for leather (sorry, couldn’t resist) in this black leather jacket and angelic, little white dress.
Besides the obvious monochrome contrast, I love the interplay of the textures – from the slick leather to the light, perforated cotton, which is just breezy enough to keep me cool in today’s heat.
Acknowledging the sportswear influence that has been seen awash the catwalks in recent seasons, perforation is a certified micro-trend for Spring Summer 2014. Dior, for instance, was one of a handful of brands that incorporated the micro-trend into their spring collection, adding an almost casual element to their couture designs.
Continuing the monochrome theme, I paired black pop socks with my black ankle boots and finished the look with a black fedora – because every outfit needs a little drama!
Quick tip: for a little pop of colour with your all-black-everything, try a bright lip stain like this one from NARS!
What do you think of my look and how are you keeping cool in the sun? Let me know in the comments below!
