The Minimilist

Last seen on the feet of Sarah Jessica Parker the minimalist heel has made a colossal comeback. The first time I saw these babies reappear was in the 10ft Gucci Spring 2013 advertisement campaign in Rome airport in July of 2012. Image

Despite running late for my flight I stopped to admire the vivacious yellow masterpiece standing down at me. As I am and always will be a wedges lover (the shoes not the potato chips people) I was reluctant at first, but as Australia enters into the Spring season I absolutely cannot get enough of the minimalist heel. After many hours spent hunting the shops of the city to analyse the vast degree of minimalist heels available I came across a few standouts that I’m sure you will looooove.

A simple black heel is so chic it hurts! The great thing about a black minimalist heel is their amazing versatility, they can be worn throughout the day, around the office and are perfect to be seen flitting around the town in by night. An extra benefit of these babies is they’re extremely lightweight and thin, meaning they are perfect for business trips and weekenders with your girlfriends.

I can never bypass a splash of colour.. There is nothing that I don’t like about a bright, statement piece of colour whether it be a clutch, necklace or blazer. What better way to add a classy dash of subtle colour through a neon minimalist heel!

And of course I can’t miss this golden opportunity to show off my new addition to the family (and my watch, which is the absolute love of my life) Ladies, I think I’m obsessed!

Let me know what you think! Do you have a pair of minimalist heels? What do you like to wear them with?

Lone Rangers

Today I went to see the new Johnny Depp movie ‘The Lone Ranger‘ it was brilliant to say the least! But yet again I found myself sitting in another movie ogling the costumes. Although the old Wild West style costumes were great I was perplexed with Johnny Depp’s costume which represented an outcast Indian tribal member.

(Just a quick Johnny photo for all you fans out there hehe)

For those of you who are thinking I must be talking about the bird.. Think again! I’m talking about the tribal vibe of the entire costume. This got me thinking about all things tribal and its appearance throughout both current day and early day fashion. Tribal is so much more than just animal prints, it’s about embellishment (omgomgomg), vivid colours, statement stones, detailing, aztec prints, feathers, tassels and SO much more!

Tribal has to be one of my all time favourite trends because there are major amounts of vivacious colour, detailing, embroidery and most importantly embellishment! I would have to say that tribal jewellery is my favourite type of tribal trend, seriously how can you not drool over these?

Tribal jewellery is amazing as it can be paired with such a wide range of outfits to make a statement without being too ‘in-your-face’ as a full tribal outfit can occasionally be. Still unsure how to add a little tribal into your everyday outfit? Simply pair it with your ‘never fail’ little black dress if you’re going out or with a coloured blazer and shirt for work (or even a black blazer cause so often the tribal colours speak for themselves!)

I will be posting some sneaky tribal influences from my week onto the instagram page so be sure to check it out (INSTAGRAM: chloesworldoffashion) Let me know your thoughts on tribal.

I would LOVE to receive some feedback from all of you, especially if anybody is attempting something tribal this week!
