TREND: Brilliant Black

While black can be boring and basic, this Fashionista managed to make it beaming and brilliant. As the most versatile color, fit, quality and style are vital in making a normal outfit into a chic outfit. Since the palette is stark, I suggest following in the trendsetter's footsteps and use details as a punctuation.

Every season there’s a piece that drives fashion fanatics into a shopping frenzy. Right now, the must-have item is the terribly chic schoolboy blazer. It can be paired with just about anything and is worn all thru the seasons. This is a trend worth the investment for there’s something incredibly sharp about menswear-inspired clothing. While many try to shy away from the horizontal stripes, I personally think this piece looks great on any body. Her black and white striped top is casual, easy to wear and very versatile. The unique detail on her shoulders adds a touch of glam and flair. It takes the basic top up a notch.

Her bag also takes the entire outfit up another notch, for join the fabulous fringe festival. While figuring out how to incorporate it in your wardrobe without looking costumey can be quite a daunting task, take a cue from this Fashionista. Embrace this look on a boot, necklace or bag. It adds a boho chic feel and movement to any outfit.
