ITSO . . . In the Style of . . . Carolina Herrera

My favourite Carolina Herrera look is a pencil skirt with a white shirt. Actually it is the white shirt that is her trademark.

I love the look of the slightly upturned collar and the 3/4 length sleeve. Whether comfortable casual at leisure or business casual and covered with a jacket, the white shirt works and it is so, in the style of Carolina Herrera. 

On Herrera offers Rules for Perfectly Simple Style" and rule #2 is that the white shirt is a "vital" item. She advises that with trousers, a man style fit is acceptable, but with a pencil skirt, it should be fitted. She also claims that for her the white shirt is like a "security blanket". Rule #5 is that "accessories make the outfit" and so it has to be if you are wearing a lot of white shirts and black bottoms. 

Elegance isn't solely defined by what you wear. It's how you carry yourself, how you speak, what you read.

Her Spring 2017 collection is predominantly black and white, with a few florals and metallics to break things up a bit and of course, she comes out to take a bow at the end in a white shirt and black skirt. Predictable yes, but always elegant and dependable. 

Fashion has always been a repetition of ideas, but what makes it new is the way you put it together. 
- Carolina Herrera

She has said many things in respect to clothing and fashion that I truly believe and so I shall respectfully leave the last words to her . . . Thank-you Carolina Herrera, we need to hear those words.

Always choose style over fashion: wear something that makes you look beautiful. 
Attention to detail is of utmost importance when you want to look good. 
It's important to find what really suits who you are, because style isn't only what you wear, it's what you project.
