Most people enjoy a challenge. When it involves clothes and the opportunity to represent your home country, I guess it's a whole other ballgame in itself. The team behind UK leader fashion retailer Next have invited Your Only Black Swan to take part in their current styling challenge, where 10 Aussie bloggers battle it out with 10 UK bloggers by styling a piece from their SS12 Collection.
Amongst the shortlist of Spring/Summer pieces, I decided to choose the floral "Ditsy Print Capri Trousers" - a fancy pants number I immediately thought would be fun to style with, yet still a challenge in proving capri pants can be just as fashionable as they were back in the 90s. Most floral pieces are instinctively included in summer dressing, though here I wanted to show just how versatile this pants are when it comes to transeasonal dressing.
