We are jumping for joy at Daily Style HQ, black and white block colouring is making its way back this winter. At the start of every season, mainly Autumn and Winter all the designers and fashion magazines tell us all about the new colours that we must be wearing this season, trying to push black and white to the back of our wardobes. This season it started with grey, all fifty shades of it, then mulberry, next came along camel hues. Now you will start seeing block black and white hitting the shelves again.
These two colours are not only the base of our wardrobes, but basically 90% of our clothing is either black or white, if not black and white striped (we love stripes). Black and white is the most true and tried colour combination, it is simple, crisp, polished and very chic.
What do you think of this classic colour combo? Check out these great peices from Witchery and more style inspro below.

The camel trench is an all time signature statement piece, it comes back every Autumn and Winter. That’s because the colour camel is actually a classic neutral. Like Black, Camel can be worn with basically any shade and If you are looking to warm up all that black in your wardrobe, camel is a great shade to add.
It’s a classic, neutral colour that adds a bit of luxe sophistication to any outfit. It brings your casual outfit to a whole new chic level. It’s rich looking, a perfect shade for autumn and a very versatile neutral for any working wardrobe no matter what your style is.
Just like Grey, Khaki and Navy – Camel is the new colour to get into your wardrobe this season!
If your like me, you spend the majority of your time in office work clothes. Yes we wish we could dress like Olivia from Scandal or the models that grace our magazine in office attire, but in reality….with kids to organise, lunches to be made and morning routines to follow, we most probably aren’t looking like we want to. But we can! Dress to impress should be a daily motto. If you wanted to be taken seriously dress the part. If you want to rise through the ranks, take notice to what the female management are wearing and follow suit.
Dress smart, some perfect pieces for the office is tailored black pants, black heels, silk shirt. It doesn’t all have to be black and white. Throw some colour in by adding accessories, perhaps a statement necklace or coloured blazer. Just make sure you avoid anything item that shows off “too” much of anything and leave the six inch stiletto’s for the weekend.

I love the boyfriend jean. I only have 2 pairs of jeans the super skinny and the boyfriend. The days I’m feeling flat, bloated and blah the boyfriend comes out to play. They are baggier, slouchy and comfy. But they do not have to be boring – they are to be worn well. Endless options on styling them up and making them look a little glam instead of bum. And we all know jeans are tran seasonal and are most properly the one item in your wardrobe that gets worn weekly, some of us daily – we best style them well.
The boyfriend can be worn on short girls and girls with hips! If you’re shorter and curvier, the boyfriend jeans look best with a heel. It’s also important to find a pair that fits a little snug so they’re not too baggy, as jeans do tend to stretch these days. Also worth noting is the height of the cuff, it shouldn’t sit to high, I prefer just above the ankle, not up the calf. I also prefer jeans with not too many pre rips in them, otherwise they won’t last as long and they look terrible.
Wear them with a pointed flat and top for a weekend lunch with the girls, with a sandal and tank for a warm day out & with a killer heel for a night out. Wear them with boots and cardigan in winter, options are endless just head to Pinterest for more inspiration. Because they are quite a masculine jean, you need to pretty / girly them up with good shoes (points or strappy), and accessories to add the feminie touch, its about keeping a balance.
We just got back from our annual week of glamping at the perfect spot of Port Elliot on the Fleurieu Peninsula. The weather in this neck of the woods is always hit & miss, this year definitely a miss. The day we left it was 40 degrees, but by nightfall that had all changed, hence the list of our clothing “must haves” was created, to make sure all basis were and are covered for future glamping trips.
We have the summer tee dress – this can be worn around on a warm day and is just an easy piece. Rolled up takes up no room at all which is a bonus.
Kaftan – to wear down on the beach over the bathers, especially if your not one confident enough to flaunt it. I live in one of these over the summer on the beach with the kids. I feel comfortable as it is still covering me up but still letting me feel like I’m beach worthy.
Jeans – these should be the first item thrown in the bag. Wear with a tee and thongs or a jumper and sneakers if its colder. What really needs to be said, they speak for themselves.
Shorts – another item which you can’t not take, can’t live without them.
Chambray Shirt – wear it over the dress or with the shorts when it starts to get cooler, wear it under the cardigan that you will also be packing for when the cold spell hits. This is a layering item and will become required at some stage of your trip, so just pack it!
Off course your bag also consists of the cardigan, track pants, bathers, t-shirts, sneakers, thongs and your pyjamas. Making sure all items are within the same colour palette helps mixing & matching. I like to take either black, white & grey palette or a Navy, white & grey palette, then throwing on a bright scarf or necklace for a pop of colour. Is there anything else you think we may have missed or that you like to take?
