After seeing Oscar De La Renta‘s great Resort 2009 collection, I was so inspired by all the great colors he used that I’ve created a look on my own based on the colors mustard and tangerine which were heavily present in De La Renta‘s collection.
British songstress Sophie Ellis-Bextor made quite an appearance at the Dom Perignon Party in London yesterday. She was wearing a beautiful white round neck satin blouse, a black skirt and a pair of gorgeous must-have double-trimmed nude pumps. We really loved her elegant monochrome ensemble, so here’s our budget-friendly take on Sophie’s look. Like it?
From left to right:
Some say monochrome is one of the hottest trends for 2008, but I say: monochrome is hot EVERY season and it will never ever go out of style. Sure, it might not be the most daring trend, but it’s a classic for a reason.
To all the hardcore fashionistas out there, add white ruffle socks and a black satin top hat to give the look the icing on the cake. But remember: You gotta be brave and confident to rock these accessoires.
