The Art Of Simplicity

The perfect piece

to update your wardrobe with this season.


When it comes to my own personal style, simplicity is definitely key. I always look for pieces that will stand the test of time, work back in with the rest of my closet and are both comfortable and stylish. This stripe rib dress ticks all the boxes for Spring Summer.

Two of my muses in both fashion and life, Joan Didion and Jane Birkin, are perfect examples of simplicity done well. Their effortless style is proof of the impact that one garment can have when worn with relaxed nonchalance and just a few simple accessories.
All you need are a few pieces of fine jewellery (I opted for layered rings) and a simple heel or mule to make a sophisticated look which is perfect for both the office or an evening out. Add a delicate gold necklace or a pair of oversized sunglasses to channel Jane and Joan respectively.

As well as being chic and easy to wear, (not to mention great to travel with) this dress also meets my new season colour brief. In an effort to wear a little less black, I’m mixing more navy and grey into my wardrobe. The modern, tonal stripes keep things interesting while still being versatile and wearable.

New season sorted.
