Back to black

17 Dec

All hail the most versatile and flattering of colours.

As a follower of fashion you’ll have seen tons of black in the glossies and on the catwalks this season.  We’re wearing it layered, gothic and with a bit of statement leather/pleather.

I love how wearing black can bring out the Italian glamour in you, a cool vibe in leather and sexy in lace.  It simply never goes out of fashion and suits every skin tone and dress size.  It’s probably safe to say you’ll have some staple pieces in black which are your go-to items when all else lets you down, however the little black dress and the little black jacket, courtesy of Karl Lagerfeld, shows that versatility still has a place in iconic high-fashion.

For the party-season I’m all for understated elegance and a softening of the season’s grunge factor.  A bit of sparkle and a slick of blazing red or passionate purple on the lips and you’ll be turning heads.  Just watch your star shaped deely boppers on low doorways.

For some inspiration see a selection of looks from the latest designer offerings (via and our own pre-loved Betula collection.

Mine’s a sambuca!
