Look of the day

Samantha Harris, David Jones spring/summer 2012/13 collection launch, August 2012

It is generally not considered good form to wear too many 'on trend' pieces at once. It can often give the impression that one is, well, a fashion victim. Yet when you are supermodel or merely innately stylish and able to put your own stamp on said trends, well the 'rules' are thrown out the window. Besides, as has been discussed many times in this spot before, really, you can wear whatever you fancy. Samantha Harris is one of those people who could wear any of the following: a garbage bag, a Canadian tuxedo, drop crotch harem pants (remember those?) and still look amazing. At the David Jones new season launch she was one of the star models on the catwalk, and off the runway she wore two of summer's key trends at once - the peplum and the cropped printed trousers. The look is bold, fashion forward and works with the nude heels. The less brave/Samantha Harris of us might choose to just wear one of the pieces at once. Whatever the case, both are pieces that require confidence and for that, the reward is handsome.
