Josh Goot, wielder of crisp, clean lines, the occasional boxy silhouette and his trademark minimalist aesthetic, proved his staying power in the recent 2015 resort collection. The Australian designer chose not to stray far from his spartan approach, producing look after look of coveted basics in a range of silhouettes. Sleek, form-fitting pencil skirts, structured blazers and boxy crop tops were all in the mix. Goot displayed his mastery of color blocking in a range of black-on-black and white-on-white separates, resulting in the collection’s refined, modern vibe. Each piece was a minimalist’s dream—structurally flawless, with the occasional digitally printed pattern and largely black and white with a hint of silver. All in all, the collection couldn’t have been more chic.
Inspiration was easy, seeing as I’ve been dying to debut an all-black outfit for a while, and Goot gave me the right push to do so. Piecing through my wardrobe, I opted for a halter crop top—modern and perfectly structured, and high-waisted shorts to keep the look summery instead of severe. The beaded shorts are chic and eye-catching, reminding me of the checkered patterns that popped up on multiple items throughout Goot’s collection. Keeping with the all-black theme, I strapped into a pair of knee-high gladiator sandals to embolden the look a little bit. Last but not least, I added in my go-to aviator sunglasses, piled my hair into a top knot and bore minimal makeup for a chic, summertime look.
