Pretty much my favourite style combo – in my home and wardrobe – is black and white. It’s timeless, versatile and perfect for travel. And oh yeah, it’s slimming too. I’ve built my wardrobe on basic pieces such as a tailored black blazer, a pair of black culottes, a black pencil skirt (ok, about a dozen black skirts and trousers) and a black leather jacket. Here are a few of my favourite Summer 2016 looks:

My classic black leather jacket is perfect over this Donna Karan dress. Edgy Aquazzura heels and a metallic Roger Vivier clutch finish the party vibe.
A tunic dress is a forever piece but it's the flared sleeves of this Derek Lam piece that grabbed my attention. I'm wearing it with Gianvitto Rossi pumps now, and then boots & tights in fall.
I'm not much of a blouse lover but this Pink Tartan design has a poetic appeal. Perfect with my Theory culottes and Aquazzura heels
Interesting accessories such as a leather flower Marni necklace and Celine espadrilles dress up a knit Eileen Fisher topper and simple basics.
So pretty - the soft drape of this Jason Wu top is perfect for work or evening.
