Style Ingredient: Styling inspiration from Sass & Bide

Sass & Bide is a label that is going from strength to strength at the moment. The brand has nailed both the neon and print trends, and seems to keep on getting better. Looking at their past two lookbooks, there are a lot of style ideas to try to recreate:
1. Pair a fancy, bright dress, with casual, gold sneakers. I love the deep red with the gold, and the contrast between the luxurious silk and the casual sneakers is great!
2. Mixing different textures in black looks even better when contrasted with a neon accessory.
3. A flash of gold looks great with panels of bright prints.
4. Wear a bright colour under a white lace dress for a cool colour pop. I love this one! I have been wearing my lace pieces with nude underlayers, but I am definitely going to replace these for bright colours!
5. Update a simple jacket with interesting sleeves. This is also one of my favourites, it adds something extra to a jacket whilst still keeping it simple, so you can wear it casually.
6. Break up a monochrome outfit with printed trousers. I still love monochrome, but it also looks really great as a way of styling print.
7. Use colour - at the back of your outfit. The back of clothing has been given lots of attention recently, but it is usually in the form of cut-outs etc. I like this idea of keeping the back exactly the same as the front - just a completely different colour. It almost looks like she's wearing the top back to front, but I love it!

  48. I really love what Sass and Bide put out but I can never fit into their clothes, even their smallest sizes look like maternity clothes on me! I'm not really keen on getting $600 dresses altered for another $150!

Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to leave a comment!
I love checking out your blogs as well, so if you leave a comment I will come visit your blog sometime soon :)
However, I firmly believe that you should follow a blog because you feel inspired, not as part of a follow-for-follow deal. I will NEVER respond to "want to follow each other" requests.
I look forward to hearing your thoughts!
