We were thrilled to have the opportunity to style the new Black Pepper ranges and are excited to be sharing the looks we’ve styled with you this evening. In case you weren’t aware, Black Pepper has recently had a shake-up of their design direction. The range is now split into 3 categories – Classic, Style and Platinum. As the name suggests, the Classic range covers your basics and remains the truest to the original Black Pepper aesthetic with polos, tees, vests and basic pants. The Style range is where you will find a beautiful selection of patterns, elevated cuts in blouses and modern jackets and all in on-trend colours. The Platinum range is for special occasions, mostly evening pieces that will have you looking fab at your next event- but rest assured you’re wearing clothing that is designed to be comfortable and flattering too. It’s clear that a great deal of attention has been paid to these new ranges. If you’re a current customer you’re still catered for and if you’re new to Black Pepper, we strongly suggest a visit.
We are also excited to be able to give away all of the Black Pepper pieces you see here for one lucky follower!

Without further ado, here are our personal picks of the current styles available in Black Pepper now. We had so much fun styling this one and hope you enjoy the looks also!
First up, this fuschia jacket caught our eye and captured our hearts immediately. Pair casually for the weekend or add a little funk to your metallic silver dress on a special occasion. Pink not your thing? No worries, this jacket is also available in an ever-versatile navy too!
It’s worth showing this look without the jacket to demonstrate the thoughtful cuts throughout the Black Pepper range. The sleeves on this tee give a little kick, making them flattering on the arm. We also think this scarf is worth celebrating! Oh, the ways we will wear this throughout every season.
This is, quite simply, the top of our Spring dreams. Blue suits everyone, the design is detailed enough to be dressy and the cut is flattering on the arms but still wearable – not too frilly like some tops! We love, love, love this one.
Green + paisley, so fresh! We love pairing green and orange, you feel immediately transported to scenes of warm sunsets over bottle-green oceans. Anyone else picturing this top on the next beachside holiday too? It’s 100% cotton so suited perfectly.
Whiteout! You know our fallback style tip… when in doubt, go tonal! Top-to-toe matching is easy but what makes this look work is the details. Always look out for textures to create interest in a tonal outfit – we love the pintuck stitch detail on this lightweight, flowy shirt.
Worth seeing without the scarf and with a changeup in accessories…
Own a jacket like this and you’re set for so many functions in life! Wear as a top, as an outer layer to elongate your frame or even in between your winter coat and top to add interest. We love how versatile this top/jacket is! It’s lightweight and a kind of crushable fabric, we’re thinking it would be a fantastic travel item.
A classic button-up is great but when you’re after that little something extra, look for stitch detail and a chambray fabric to instantly lift your look. Pair with sharp accessories and you’ve got yourself one hell of a smart outfit.
Denim jackets can often add too much bulk. The key is to look for straight cuts and collarless as they’re a much sleeker finish. Scrunch up those sleeves if the denim will allow and you’re looking photo-ready!
Stepping out tonight? You can’t go past these pants. The waistband is wide, flat and stretchy – 3 of our favourite pant features! Plus we love some evening navy over black. Paired with rich purples and more blues you need only add some sparkle and go. Note: this top already has some metallic stitching in the print, bonus!
This is that dress that you can throw on in a rush and know that it’s flattering and appropriate for any occasion. Elasticised under the bust, thick hem cuffs on the arm and quality fabric give this frock a sense of luxe all wrapped up in a smart casual pattern and colour.
Does anyone else love navy and brown leather together as much as we do?
