OOTD: Playing It Straight

Hey peeps! What have you been doing to keep busy in my absence? Hehe. I have not put up an outfit in AGES. I apologise. As for me, I’ve been tidying up my closet. And by tidying I mean, reshuffling. You heard that right. I’m having one of style epiphanies where you feel like you want to experiment more with your style choices and take fashion risks. And it’s really exciting!  I can’t elaborate on this now because I want to surprise everyone (myself included).

Nevertheless, at the moment, I’m loving the new trend this 2013 which so far has been dominated mainly by monochrome, stripes and two-tone. Read my post on Must-Have Skirts this season. I couldn’t wait to wear my H&M stripe blouse and mauve pencil skirt. I paired them with my Zara seriously-stylish heels which I have been so impatient to wear. These babies are to die for! This year seems to be about straight lines, black & white and graphic prints. I must say the few collections I’ve had a glimpse of are looking very good! Stella McCartney, Dior, Zara, Mango, H&M, J.C Penney and more are all playing straight. I hope it’s here to stay. Let us know what your favourite collection this season is.

    Stipes are a big item on the runway this season and I am elated as I love to play with prints, colors and patterns. I am Loving the blue too, that’s one color you will find in abundance in my wardrobe too. Love the ensemble.
