Part two of my collaboration with ASOS for my take on spring race-wearmonochrome-
style. Embracing my love of a little midriff this time around with a flash of skin, 
balanced out as usual with my token man-style jacket draped across the shoulders. 
I tweaked few things here and there to make the pieces more acceptably 'me', such as 
flipping the bandeau top upside-down to get a cleaner neckline, and anchoring the 
pearl headband to the back of my head in an ode to that headpiece from Balenciaga 
Spring 2013  that started it all. The idea is to take traditional racing style and turn it 
on its head, creating something that suits your own personal style. You do you, as 
they say - you'll look (and feel) far better for it.

Teaming up with ASOS this week for my take on Spring Racing style because, well, 
'tis the season down here. The theme? How to work tailored, monochromatic minimalism 
trackside. No fascinators required.

This first look was somewhat inspired by Chanel's Spring 2013 Ready-to-Wear collection
mixed in with accessories from this year's 2014 collection. Being into pared-back minimalism 
as I am, I love accessories that add a luxe element while also providing function, and these 
sunglasses and neat little chain bag do just that. This super-sleek jumpsuit and duster 
jacketmeanwhile, add that much-needed tailored element that often gets overlooked on 
race day, with dresses usually being the go-to for most. Top this off with a clean two-strap 
heel and I for one am feeling pretty track-ready.

Monday translates to "minimal effort" in my world, meaning loose layers, casually-slung 
bags and a good dose of bed hair. Currently into odd layering situations such as this one, 
bringing simple shirt-dresses into trans-seasonal territory with clean pencil skirts peeking 
out from underneath. This looks equally as good with a half-tuck in front, but most days 
just let it all hang out.

A prime example of on-duty wear for me: loose button-down shirt, leather leggings
comfortable flats, a handy hold-all and a classic blazer for draping, in case I need to 
look a little more polished at some point in the day. A kind of "undone togetherness", 
as I like to think of it. Works every time.

Bringing together my favourite basics to form a somewhat-put-together trans-seasonal 
outfit for everyday duties. There is just something about a barely-there slip dress 
paired with a heavy wool coat that just works - a neat juxtaposition, all anchored by 
solid loaferDefinitely my kind of garb.

MODERN SUITING: WHITE ON WHITE

Part two in my series on modern suiting: the white-on-white pantsuit. Of course, my version 
is a little left of centre, and unapologetically slouchy. For me, the all-white suit has often 
been difficult territory to navigate, with many combinations seeming too formal for everyday 
wear or way too Miami Vice. My solution? Throw some unexpected pieces into the mix, like 
clean muscle tank and super-drop-crotch pant, or indeed anything slightly (or totally) 
offbeat to make the look your own. Add a sleek modern heel to the mix and any unwanted 
Don Johnson vibes will quickly be rendered null and void.

There is something about the classic pantsuit that makes it feel simultaneously retro and yet modern all 
at the same time. Perhaps because it never ceases to exist as a key item in every wardrobe, male or female, 
whatever may or may not be "in fashion" at any particular point in time. This sense of timelessness, of 
transcending trends, is surely what makes the humble suit so inherently appealing and indeed evocative in 
its representation of strength and endurance when you put one on, you immediately feel like you could take 
on the world. There is no doubt the pantsuit is one of my all-time favourite wardrobe staples, and I have thus 
decided to celebrate my love for this piece with a little series on different ways I like to wear it day-to-day. 
First things first - the classic black suit. Boyfriend-cut blazer, wide-leg pants, a classic camistructured 
tote and luxe slides - this is how I wear by all-black suiting for a day of running around like a mad woman 
(which, on this day, I actually really was. Quite mad). There is nothing more perfect for a day of craziness 
than a pantsuit, in my opinion, with its ability to keep you looking (and hopefully feeling, but no promises
wholly put-together however busy you may be. Cut through the crazy with a classic pantsuit - let's call that 
my quote for the day.
