Today : Playing a lil bit on the Wild Side in a Monochromatic Palette.
Playlist : Gorgon City - Here for You
Wearing : Oversize White Shirt, Leather Shorts, Lace-up Mules and Faux Zebra Skin Clutch.
Let me start of by saying, the peak of the "Love of Leather" movement has far from reached it's climax and I, Tneale, whole-heartedly motion yes on the #leathershort order. If shorts are versatile and comfortable fashion staple , then them in #luxe Leather is what I would call a High Fashion staple. Shorts come prepared to pair, with sophisticated wear and quirky statement pieces. Get on the train Friends.
And if you're feeling adventurous, try #zebraprint on for size, and by size I mean accessorise.
Everyone has their own theory on the constant and inevitable comeback of #animalprint, season after season - they're neutral, they're seasonless, they ooze #edgy, true but bla bla bla. It's time to expand our repertoire and include the neglected exotic prints. Fashion insiders have voiced that fashion is going on Safari this year, vogue.com has gone and called it City Safari, Animal Print is the solution to bringing colour into our lives and I'm all like wait a minute - even the Animal's are dressed in #blackandwhite, hello , why fix what's not broken ?
So say hello to my favourite #monochromatic creature, ze Zebra. And because I'm such an advocate for #minimalism, I don't do the whole "Print swallowing you whole' thing, so I kept the almost digital treated, faux Zebra skin to be that quirky statement piece I spoke about earlier. In essence what I did was pair minimalistic and colour-blocked (because black and white are colours in my book) pieces achieving a clean modernity , no ?
Think Basic's (white shirt and shorts ) made edgy ( Oversized and Leather ) with a graze of frivolous animal print.
