A windy afternoon on Dubai’s Palm Jumeirah was where I shot this monochrome number for today’s style post.
Black and white was a huge trend this summer, stripes thick and thin dotting the streets – and it’s a theme that has also nudged its way into the winter wardrobe, with houndstooth designs found in every store. Earlier this summer, I shot a similar piece myself that you can see right here in the heart of Milano. Along the charming Italian streets – it made a real statement. And I craved a similar effect in today’s shoot.
The black and white outfit stood out boldly on the blue horizon as the waves crashed onto the rocks. We have incredible weather in Dubai right now, so it was wonderful just sitting watching boats sail by. I chose to pair it the monochrome with hints of gold, also found on the envelope shaped Zara clutch.
What I love most about this simple outfit is that with a pair of flats and a tote, it’s an ideal look for the day, while matching it with some edgy heels gives that perfect twist to your otherwise dark evening wear. What do you guys think?
