Wardrobe Diaries: Khaki Florals























When I dabbled in graphics design a few years ago, the first and most important lesson I learnt was to always design in black and white. The reason was simple, most companies print in black and white ink so your logo must first work in black and white before it can work in colour. I think the same rule of thumb applies to fashion. For me, it's all about the silhouette. A good silhouette is the foundation for other embellishments. The right proportions is to fashion what black and white is to graphics.

One of my favourite designers is Alexander McQueen. I love the attention to detail each outfit is given, I love the juxtaposition of hard vs soft elements but most of all, I love McQueen's silhouettes. If you stripped each design back to it's original muslin mould I bet you'd still be able to wear it out and look fabulous, though you may get some strange stares. This outfit is inspired by the McQueen silhouette. What do you think?

What a gorgeous outfit - I have a similar skirt from Topshop and you have inspired me to wear it again!!

I agree about the foundation of a good silhouette (or black and white in terms of graphics) is the key to a beautiful outfit

Hope you are well Lovely

Lolita in the Mix said...

Amazing! Love it! You won't believe it but I had that asos skirt in my basket, at the end I had to choose and threw it out since I already got so many florals! What a pitty, because seeing it on you makes me wanna have it too! Love the entire outfit and how you've styled it! Ps. about the chopped off heads, that is a compromise with my BF since he doesn't like me posting pictures of myself, hopefully it's temporarely.. But untill then, just to respect his choice, I'll keep chopping it off, haha!
