Trust my favourite NZ designer to take the ruffle and its undeniably garish overtones and transform 
it into this perfectly minimal, classic piece you see before you. 

Perfectly voluminous yet clean and subtle, the ruffle is now thankfully less Little House on the Prairie 
and more get in my shopping cart, stat! than ever before thanks to the likes of Georgia Alice, ELLERY
Rachel Comey and A.W.A.K.E. to name just a few. The key to shopping the look? Stick to muted or 
monochromatic tones with minimal finishes and clean lines - unfussy, soft and sleek is the name of 
the game.

A change of season always pushes me to experiment with my standard style, and right now I am all 
about a fresh take on accessories. 

Moving away from solely black bags and shoes and into a chic new world of muted tones is the name 
of the game, with beautifully soft tans, khakis, creams, burgundies and even pastels (if you are more 
daring than I..) working to really freshen and elevate an otherwise all black or monochromatic wardrobe. 
I've paired these Gray Matters pumps and MM6 Maison Margiela tote accordingly with some standard 
and purposefully old (sorry they don't exist anymore) black and white pieces to really bring home the
 point, as the real test of a new accessory purchase is whether it can bring new life to those time-honoured 
staples and help take them seamlessly into the new season. 

So shop smart, get into this new take on accessories and lighten up that trans-seasonal wardrobe with 
a bold, anything-but-black attitude. Like me, you might be surprised at just how much you love it.

Leave it to Balenciaga to breathe new life into one of the oldest suiting finishes around. 
Never would I have thought I'd be back on the houndstooth print outside of some ironic ode 
to my schooling days, but give me an exaggerated hourglass cut mixed with a man-style 
tailored finish and you can consider me schooled in the basic necessity of such a piece..
