A black dress is a blank canvas – for absolutely any colour bag or any style of shoe. Everyone should own at least one black dress in their lifetime due to its ability to take you absolutely anywhere. From a loose casual day at the beach or mall to that ultra modern new bar in the evening, you can dress a black dress up or down!

Black, livened up with metallic heels & a pop of pink… instant chic. Modern, feminine, individual, this is one clash you can get away with!


There’s something magical about monochrome accessories.  What they lack in flavourful colour they make up for in polished, film noir sophistication that makes you feel like you’ve stepped into one of those black and white movies and met your screen icon role model.  


Max up on the metallics – gold, silver, rose gold – for instant nighttime glitz that oozes sophistication.


Want a more bohemian, garden party vibe that doesn’t compromise on style? Good news, you can still rock a pair of gorgeous platforms like these Steve Madden beauties. Look for lace or ruffles for a relaxed take on the LBD and accessories that lean towards earthy tones, monogram and florals are fine as long as they’re not too OTT!


Break tradition with a rocky, rebellious twist on this look. Try layering a white tee underneath a black strappy dress or invest in this pre-layered R13 number. Accessory wise, think block heels, platforms, studs, snakeskin and chains.

Bardot dresses, cork style heels and patent tote bags are big news, with spring approaching these are sure to take you through to the summer days & nights. There are a lot of possibilities with these looks. You could even add a biker jacket, denim or blazer for added edge and warmth, should the summer nights still have a chill in the air.

Brighten up Spring’s top trends with big blocks of bold colour. Clashing is all very well as long as the hues complement each other or match small details in your ensemble.

Accentuating one or two colours works, for example a red dress with some white accessories to compliment the subtle white patterning in the dress.


Gingham is a timeless summer trend that’s instantly awakened with a pop of bright colour and a classic accessory.  Coral shades are a modern alternative to red.  If you want to keep the look a bit quieter, gingham and tan also make a good pairing for spring and summer.
