Black Is The New Black

My obsession for black tailoring has yet to diminish, and it’s not going anywhere for a while. Leaving the UK at the end of a gloomy winter meant I was able to buy into this trend just at the right time. And knowing that it is set to stay over these next few months makes me one happy lady! Here in Sydney, we’re going into Autumn so it is the perfect temperature to bare a bit of belly and add some layers.

Today’s shoot was with my partner is crime, Alisha ( She has been eager to show me The Grounds of Alexandria ever since we discussed it at Fashion Week. Thankfully, we were graced with the sunshine and enjoyed a tasteful Aussie brekkie to set us up for the day ahead. I love picture taking with this lady as we both hate one thing.....Greenery. It looks beautiful to the eye but is our little pet hate in photos. So we took a walk around the grounds and found a backstreet alley to add edge to our structured looks.

The lines of each black piece really complimented each other and choosing this cropped look meant that you could clearly see the cut of each item. I love the shape of these harem shaped trousers and especially like the draping from the waistband. My tailored style was inspired by one of my favourite designers, Alexander Wang. His SS14 collection consisted of low slung loose fitting trousers, bralets, and open split shirts. Well toned midriffs were owning the runway. A tasteful street twist styled on a sexy masculine trend. It’ll be interesting to see how Australian style hungry females style this trend in the coming months. I definitely think layering will make this look really powerful and can’t wait to wear more looks like this one.
