It’s clear that Margot Robbie knows how to wear the combination of black and white in the most flattering of ways - usually sourcing her clothes from Chanel. It’s a color pairing that never goes out of style and can be worn during any season.
Of course, the Wolf Of Wall Street actress appreciates that it’s the use of other design elements that creates the most impact. Details such as the texture of the materials has taken her monocrome outfits to the next level.
The glossy finish of leather gives it a luxe feel, and the Birds Of Prey actress knows how to use it to her advantage. She looked fierce in a pair of black leather shorts with a ruffle waist and buckle in the shape of the monogram of the Chanel brand.
The rock chic look is contrasted with the upper part of her ensemble - a white poplin shirt with a high neck and long sleeves that is more reminiscent of the classic and formal style of Karl Lagerfeld.
The Self-Portrait label employs a similar look in their Fall 2019 collection, which adds an asymmetric off-the-shoulder top to the combination. Margot wore a similar style of top - by Chanel of course - which includes pleated ruffles completed with a pair of simple straight-leg black sateen pants, a silhouette so universal that a version of it has already been sent down the runway at New Zealand Fashion Week.
With the arrival of colder temperatures, it’s common to see a preference for warmer fabrics, such as thicker tartan, gingham, houndstooth and others that are mostly made of wool.
In addition to incorporating them into contemporary design pieces, one way to have fun with these classic check patterns is to combine them with each other to create a contrasting-geometric effect.
Chanel combined different check patterns for its Haute Couture Fall 2019 collection. The Australian actress, who is the face of their perfume Gabrielle, attended the show wearing a combination of different check patterns in separate pieces.
