Tonal Merge

IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A WAY TO INJECT SOME NEWNESS INTO YOUR WARDROBE IN A SUBTLE WAY - YOU CAN USE A STYLING TECHNIQUE WITH ITEMS YOU MAY ALREADY OWN + A HINT OF NEW = SOMETHING RATHER FABULOUS.

- Merge your colours together! Neutrals work really well together. Either as a colour block of the same shade or by mixing similar tones together.

- Add something pink! Pink is showing up as a must wear colour, but not in the traditional ‘girly’ sense. Wear it back with neutrals such as tobacco, camel or chocolate.

- Tonal accessories and footwear are key, including the lust worthy mock croc!

- If you want to take a safer approach, wearing white back with neutrals is always chic and classic.

The Heat Is On

In the southern hemisphere, summer feels like it has just started. here is a guide to some of my favourite items.

- My favourite brand at the moment is Loewe (pronounced LOH-eh-vay). Stunning, simple, classic yet so so cool. From the oversized sunglasses, classic beautiful leather handbags to the must own summer bag….the ‘up market’ market basket.

- I can’t live without my vintage Levis slouchy denim shorts. It is difficult to find the perfect vintage pair, but once you do they are wardrobe changing. Alternatively you can buy re worked Levis online. Washed out blue and slouchy boyfriend fit (not super short or tight) look great with a white t-shirt or a dressy top.

- Asymmetric one piece swimsuits are great as can be worn to the beach or as a body suit back with a skirt or denim short.

- Dresses are so easy to wear when it hot and can be worn to the beach or dressed up. Animal print, soft florals, neutrals and white.

- A simple sandal in nude and black is your essential shoe.

- An oversized straw hat is essential.

Summer Shoes

As it starts to warm up, and holidays are just around the corner - here is some inspiration to make your feet LOOK fine!

- Key colours are tan or camel tones and black as staples. But there is a lot of newness in white, cream and chocolate.

- Sneakers are not going anywhere and look great worn back with summery dresses.

- The slide is still important but now its a lot more chunky. Buckle details, studding and wider straps.

- Suede sandals and slides are big, studded details and you will also see lots of shell embellishment.

- Wedge styles, animal prints and rope details are still here.

- There is still lots of logo pool slides around…they are really easy to wear to embrace it!

Just Casual

Casual dressing some people find the hardest to get right. if you have the right elements, you can be comfortable and styling!

- Suiting doesn’t need to be just for the office. Style back with a white tank and sneakers and you have the perfect chic version of wearing a suit. Also wear as separates - the pants with a hoodie or slouchy knit or the blazer back with denim and a boot.

- A trench is the perfect layering piece. You can wear with denim, tailored pants or even a casual pant. You will look chic without even trying.

- Stripes look so fresh and just work. You can even mix stripes with spots or animal print.

- A hoodie is not just for wearing to the gym, style with tailored pants or skirts as well.

- Dresses are perfect for casual style - but pick styles that can we worn in different way to dress up or down.

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 - The Classics

INSPIRATION WHEN CREATING YOUR 'WORK UNIFORM'.

BLACK AND WHITE always works. it looks classic, chic and very sophisticated.

 

1. Buying black and white is an easy solution to work wear. You can also mix the elements easily.

2. Adding white pieces always looks crisp and classic. 

3. Use textures and monocromatic prints to add a contrast  

4. Wearing head to toe black just works - even if you get sick of 'always wearing black', there is no doubting how chic it looks.
