Alexa Chung in monochrome

Black and white is something of a Chanel staple, reinvented time and again into combinations both classic and on-trend. At Chanel’s fall 2011 Haute Couture show Alexa Chung donned one such black and white ensemble. Utterly feminine with its white flounces, black ribbons, and black lace trim, she kept it simple and monochrome with black shoes and a classic black quilted handbag; and while some pops of colour could also work, keeping it black and white is by far the most fool-proof way to wear a dress like this one.

Some people's wardrobes are about a small selection of pieces that all fit within one aesthetic - Tania Braukamper isn't such a person. With a wardrobe that spans three different rooms, her approach to fashion is a mixture of current-season key pieces mixed with vintage finds she's sourced on innumerous shopping trips around the world's more cultured capitals. Despite a disparate approach to shopping, Tania is adamant that the key to mixing vintage with new season is to stick to key looks and colours that work for oneself. And it's a theory that she works into her writing for, where she serves as the publication's Editor.
