Back in Black for the BAFTAs babes and LFW luvvies

1 Posted by - February 17, 2014 - All, Fashion

To somewhat paraphrase a much overused social media favourite, “we’ll stop wearing black when they invent a darker colour”. This season, it would appear the who’s who from the lands of fashion and film have been taking such a suggestion directly to heart, as the colour of the night finds it’s way into many a LFW outfit or red carpet look. Olivia Palermo upped her wardrobe ante post-NYFW with a smattering of killer black threads, our favourite of which must undeniably be the look she hit the Pringle FROW with. Ange rocked black on the BAFTAs red carpet like only a former wild child can, all androgyny and undeniable sex appeal. Finally, this morning’s schedule saw Christopher Kane send it bombing straight down the catwalk, an emphatic focus on texture and unexpected materials which were raring to hit the new season ground running. Whatever occasion you’re dressing for this season, opt for black and ensure your style savvy maintains an enviable reputation. Texture and silhouette bring a new lease of life to old styles and ensure you’ll be back in black for many months to come.
