Girl On The Go.

While still looking feminine, there is the new vibe of sophisticated pieces styled back with edgy cool day wear.

- New colours to consider are apple green, mustard & paprika. Style back with denim or neutrals….even adding a hint go red looks great.

- Feminine shapes and details such as puffy sleeves, corset details, wide belts and the key to this is contrasting button details.

- The ‘onsie’ is back and although you might be thinking…. “what the”, it is a very chic style to wear with sneakers, slides or even a heel.

In Love With Animal

A neutraL, a classic & really adds edge to an outfit - animal print also works on everyone!

- Animal print works so well when worn with denim and a white shirt. The print becomes the statement.

- Don’t be afraid to mix animal prints with stripes or florals - when done right can look very cool.

- The new animal prints are more futuristic and bold. Although these are more “fashion” if you are looking for a new take on this print, this is your answer.

- Printed footwear and handbags never goes out of style. Even a hint of animal print works every time.

Nine to Five - Blue Business

Inspiration when creating your 'work uniform'.

the key is 1. core, 2. SEPARATES, 3. invest 

 

Embracing the uniform elements of work wear while still having some fashion and personality thrown in - 'Blue Business'  allows you to be corporate yet cool while being able to style different elements of your wardrobe. 

1. Navy is very classic however has a freshness if you find yourself always wearing black. 

2. Try different tones and textures of 'blues' and mix them together.

3. Add a pop of colour with accessories - yellow works really well with navy and blue tones. 

4. Your work wear can also be worn on the weekend by styling back with denim.

Feminine Cool

There are always ways to update your style with touches of femininity. However you can also be edgy and cool when dressing 'pretty'. 

- Stripes can be pretty too - think about shirting with a twist and dresses with fullness. 

- Gingham in more structured styles, like suiting styled back with a pop of red or lace trim shirting, adds some edge to femininity. 

- White is key to classic feminine dressing. And don't forget about white accessories like eyewear and baskets. 

- Denim with a pretty top is the ultimate feminine cool. With slicked back hair and a red lip - effortless.

Island Dreaming

THIS LOOK IS ONE OF MY ALL TIME FAVOURITES. MAINLY BECAUSE IT NEVER GOES OUT OF STYLE AND SUITS EVERYONE. 

1. Even if you are sick of wearing stripes, there is no denying they really do look great. Look to update your stripes in new shapes and colours. 

2. Add spot into this look and style back with stripes. 

3. Embrace the basket! Not only is it convenient, you can now buy really fun versions of the humble basket. 

4. The key to this trans-seasonal nautical look is classic styles while adding some fun in. Bold earrings, layers of necklaces and strapy shoes are a must.

Cold Here, Warm There

EVEN THOUGH IT'S FREEZING IN AUSTRALIA, WARMER WEATHER IS JUST AROUND THE CORNER.

A few things to remember when adding new season colours to your wardrobe.

1. Try something new! I adore the new 'greens' - worn with navy, white and denim look so fresh.

2. Wear 'tone on tone' or 'shade matching'. Think tobacco with rust or camel with peach tones. 

3. Rose gold or gold accessories still a must on glowing skin.
