Back to Basics.

With so much talk of raising and lowering heels and hemlines, print on print, feathers, fringe, jumpsuits, kimonos and the bag of the season, it's easy to get lost in trends.

This week I'm going back to basics and taking inspiration from some savvy style icons for the most necessary of wardrobe mainstays - the classic and uncomplicated palette of black and white. The yin and yang out of the rainbow colour spectrum, these two hues are basic staples that everyone should have in their closet.

While trends come and go, these contrasting options offer a seamless transition into each season and serve as a canvas for you to experiment and accessorize with other trends accordingly.

One thing I can say with certainty, while black and white may be basic, they are anything but ordinary.
