Black & White Stripes

by Claire Chanelle


As I am sure you have all noticed, black and white stripes are dominating the high street at the moment. I love black and white stripes! Here is a look at me today wearing the trend. I was rushing around finding loads of beautiful items for my clients at Chelsea Styling. The weather is so horrible and rainy in London. I even had my hair up, which is extremely rare for me. I have been wearing my new Jimmy Choo biker boots so much in this bad weather and they are so comfortable. They are by far one of the best things I have bought this year. As soon as they’re worn out I will be buying a new pair. They are the perfect pair of biker boots.

I wore my new Versace belt to break up the black and white.

I moved into my new home six months ago and the first thing I did was decorate my bathroom with black and white stripes. I decided to feature this design in the bathroom because I was worried I would get bored of it anywhere else. I have elements of stripes all over my house.

When I walked into Zara the other day I loved all the stripes and if I am honest had a little moment of “I’ve been doing this trend for ages in my house! ;)” I had an agreement with Paris I was not going to buy anything else this week. This MAY be due to the fact I bought three pairs of  Christian Louboutin shoes in one week. Plus another pair of Loubs the week before plus a pair of Stella McCartney shoes!! OUCH so I was banned from the shops.

I still have not had a chance to wear the Stellas yet. They are so unusual and nothing like anything I have, so I had to get them.

Because he knows how much I love black and white stripes I was allowed to pick one item. I went for the silk wrap top. Do you like it?

Has anyone bought anything from this trend yet?

Here are some photos of a few stripy things I have in my home.

Did you watch the final episode of Gossip Girl? What did you think? Blair’s Elle Saab wedding dress was my dream one! Serena’s however was a disappointment, I wasn’t keen.

Keep posted as I will show you the new Loubs later on in the week.

I am wearing: Fleece jacket from Singapore, Versace belt, Zara jeans, Jimmy Choo biker boots, Harrods hair bow with Céline Phantom bag.
