Monochrome Tailoring

Two of my favourite things! Have you seen my Instagram account? Yes, I have a fear of colour, but this isn’t a bad thing when styling a tailored Monday-Friday look. When it comes down to signature structures, some of the strongest designers opt for this colour palette such as Acne Studios, Celine and Jenni Kayne. Today I bring you the wide legged pant. It’s been a feature in my wardrobe for the last 2 winter’s, the only difference being the massiveness.  I swear trousers are just getting bigger! It must be a mix between the wide legged trend and the flare combined! Being only 5 ft 3, this look could have gone one of two ways:

  1. Swamped under a big ball of tailoring
  2. Fitted in all the right places with a structure and weightlessness.

I’d like to think the latter was the case! Usually this style is way too long, and the problem with internet shopping is you don’t quite know what’s going to arrive on your doorstep. Thankfully Rare London are smart thinkers and thoughtful towards us more petite ladies and made this style high waisted with an impressive leg that isn’t designed for supermodels. I don’t think you can get much wider with this, hence the lightweight cotton turtle neck tucked in and tight fitting. 

One rule: keep the top figure hugging with a baggy pant. 

For layering, I styled with this vest that has a gorgeous texture contracting fabrics. Business at front and party at the back with the sheer design. I’m a huge fan of a vest, whether it be long or mid length like this beauty. Plus, it adds that extra tailored touch without suiting up with a blazer. It’s a little less formal, but on trend at the same time. I shot this look with good friend Alisha, and we couldn’t believe how gorgeous the light and shadows were! Plus how nice is the backdrop to compliment the look? Not as amazing at the cinnamon roll I divulged in prior to this! Yum (totally off subject I know!)

It’s Friday, which means it’s nearly the weekend! I’ll be selling at Bondi markets this Sunday so if you are in the area come and say hi!
