According to trinny and susannah, black should only be worn with white or grey. Ever since I heard this I do tend to think that black and bright and colour is not such a good combination... But surely there are exceptions? What do you think?
I was thinking more of casual black trousers (which used to be one of my wardrobe basics). Now I just don't think they go with a red or bright blue top... I just wear them with a white t-shirt and a black jumper... Aren't I boring and easily infuenced?!! What do you girls think is the perfect casual top for black trousers then?
if its casual black trousers the a top that extends below the wait down to the hips imo, otherwise the black line is very definitive and cuts the body. so a lovely wrap top out of monsoon or m & s with some balck in the print could look fab. doesnt have to even that expensive primark probably have lovely tunic tops for the sprin that would work or a short sleeve top over a long white sleeve would look crisp,
Hmmm long is good. Even though I'm back to my pre pregnancy weight and size clothes don't fit me like they used to anymore . T-shirts and jeans or polo neck jumpers and jeans used to be my basics and always looked good, but now it just doesn't work. I feel like my ribcage is still bigger (or more open), if this is possible 15 months on... and that bloody muffin top... All tops are short now and I have a tiny upper body....
