A Black & White Affair

The black and white striped knit is one of those classic pieces of fashion history that can be worn to/with almost anything. The Black and white cardi is one of my all time favourite pieces of clothing, one that's everywhere, but I still can't seem to find the perfect one. I guess I'll be searching forever...But in the meantime it's just nice to look at others, like this dazzling Dior from his A/W 05 collection (left). The length of this particular loose knit makes it a perfect choice for a fun and sexy night out, hanging with friends, or trying to impress someone special.

Here Cameron Diaz demonstartes perfectly the way to wear this piece dressed up: with black opaque tights and black pumps. The chunky bracelet is a nice addition too.

Want to spend your money on something worthwhile? Then head down to your nearest shopping centre, check out the knitwear, and get your hands on the best thing since sliced bread: a black and white striped cardi!

p.s. I've been seeing lots of high waisted jeans being sported by the likes of Kate Moss and Mischa Barton...2 of Hollywood's most stylish inhabitants. How could they have gone so wrong? These girls have always been ahead of the trends, so if them wearing high-waisted jeans means that they're making their way back into the fashion scene, then I am devastated. High-waisted jeans are a trend that lived in the 80s and died in the 90s. This does not mean they can be re-created. Not yet anyway. I will not be promoting this style at any point, sorry.
