Part two of my collaboration with ASOS for my take on spring race-wearmonochrome-
style. Embracing my love of a little midriff this time around with a flash of skin, 
balanced out as usual with my token man-style jacket draped across the shoulders. 
I tweaked few things here and there to make the pieces more acceptably 'me', such as 
flipping the bandeau top upside-down to get a cleaner neckline, and anchoring the 
pearl headband to the back of my head in an ode to that headpiece from Balenciaga 
Spring 2013  that started it all. The idea is to take traditional racing style and turn it 
on its head, creating something that suits your own personal style. You do you, as 
they say - you'll look (and feel) far better for it.

Teaming up with ASOS this week for my take on Spring Racing style because, well, 
'tis the season down here. The theme? How to work tailored, monochromatic minimalism 
trackside. No fascinators required.

This first look was somewhat inspired by Chanel's Spring 2013 Ready-to-Wear collection
mixed in with accessories from this year's 2014 collection. Being into pared-back minimalism 
as I am, I love accessories that add a luxe element while also providing function, and these 
sunglasses and neat little chain bag do just that. This super-sleek jumpsuit and duster 
jacketmeanwhile, add that much-needed tailored element that often gets overlooked on 
race day, with dresses usually being the go-to for most. Top this off with a clean two-strap 
heel and I for one am feeling pretty track-ready.

Monday translates to "minimal effort" in my world, meaning loose layers, casually-slung 
bags and a good dose of bed hair. Currently into odd layering situations such as this one, 
bringing simple shirt-dresses into trans-seasonal territory with clean pencil skirts peeking 
out from underneath. This looks equally as good with a half-tuck in front, but most days 
just let it all hang out.
