WORKING YOUR WINTER WARDROBE

Loading Likes...

Looking chic in winter is tricky. How can we stay warm whilst juggling multiple layers of clothing, the rain and the temptation of just staying at home?

This week’s post is a handy little guide to keep in your arsenal, for when the winter blues hit, and your wardrobe needs a pick-me-up!

TIP ONE: THE BOYS

Menswear is not only on trend right now, but is the perfect inspiration guide for those chilly days. A tailored pant suit with smaller elements such as a necklace under the collars or sleek stiletto boots will keep you warm and stylish from nine to five. Your partner or brother’s wardrobe has never been of more use!

our tip: play around with combination suits this winter, and play on shades of grey or navy when creating a pant suit look. Also, don’t be afraid to foray into your partner’s cufflink collection. Cufflinks are an excellent way to accessorise any shirt and pant combination!

TIP TWO: RARING RUFFLE

Winter might make us feel as if we need to hide inside and sacrifice style to the elements. But why should we? Swap out a simple white shirt or black pencil skirt, for one with additional detailing to add fun and flirty elements to your ensemble. After all, inside an office building, the layers come off, so use the boardroom as your catwalk to showcase a feminine yet edgy look!

 MORGAN                                                                       Y.A.S

our tip: tailoring is key. Even the simplest white shirt can be elevated by adding ruffles, buttons or hardware. Seek out accessories that are office appropriate for your corporate code, and let your ensembles speak for themselves!

TIP THREE: FLIRTING WITH FLORAL

Whilst floral may be a typically spring fling, taking floral prints in moody Burgundy or purple tones can help add colour to a dreary winters day. Play around with the length of floral dresses or skirts, and have fun mixing up floral prints with other textures such as satin or velvet – especially if your dress code is casual business.

PORTMANS                                                            PORTMANS

our tip: florals in winter are always about balance. darker tones will add depth to any look, even if the floral is understated or subtle.

TIP FOUR: BOXED BLOUSES

As the wind chill picks up, swap out crepe or silk blouses for cashmere knits flaunting a mock or turtle neck as a fun addition underneath a blazer. A striking maroon turtleneck under a simple yet well tailored pant suit might make all the difference to your look and feel for the day.

our tip: whilst you don’t need to spend exorbitant amounts of money on knitwear, ensure you invest in pieces that do not reveal threads or catch pills easily. Maintaining a crisp appearance by being well groomed is equally about your hair and makeup, as it is about the state of your clothing.

TIP FIVE: ACCENT WITH ACCESSORIES

Scarves and big, bold bags are the way to go in winter. A chic scarf adds warmth to any look and is a great way to add colour and other textures to otherwise simpler ensembles. Also carrying a more structured tote that fits a lot more will add an air of no-nonsense boss lady as you confidently strut to your building, even in the coldest of temperatures.

our tip: as with clothing, spend time and invest carefully in accessories such as bags and scarves. These items should carry you throughout multiple seasons.

STREET APPEAL

Loading Likes...

With Fashion Week done and dusted for another season, it’s time to talk what’s new, exciting and on trend. Namely, we wanted to focus on the plethora of street style inspirations our instagram was flooded with.

Street style is everywhere. It’s cool, relaxed and a true celebration of tailoring, material and combination. Edge, unexpectedly high levels of sass and a sleek nonchalance are to be expected.

But what exactly is street style?

Street style, as the name suggests, has always been there. But it rose to prominence post World War II. An acceptance of different style and flaunting femininity or masculinity through androgynous tailoring is what we associate with street style. It’s a true celebration of quality materials and textures, and allows any style icon to be comfortable all day. Sneakers, asymmetry and unique tailored cuts are essential elements of street style.

So what went down at fashion week? 

Mercedes Benz Fashion Week was a true celebration of how Sydney, as a fashion conglomerate in its own right, displays street style reminiscent of what Sydney is – young, fresh and laidback. The vibe is moody, carefree and promotes true comfort whilst breaking fashion barriers. Wider framed aviator frames, the juxtaposition of leather and pale florals, bold and monotoned atheleisure and a celebration of tailoring that took frame and size to the limit were all on show this year:

Outfit inspiration:

This week’s outfit draws on our favourite aspects of street style – mixing textures and size. We stayed true to our femininity by flaunting the sharpest aspects of the body. The look is clean, sharp and excessively cool in that effortless way. We amalgamated power suiting and street style to create a mixed look with cuffed trousers, an oversized vintage velvet blazer (sans top of course) to take control of the top, and finished the look with a biting pair of slingbacks.

$HOW ME THE MONEY!

There’s one colour that never fails to make you look expensive.

Contrary to popular belief, it isn’t black and it’s ability to add allure and slim you down; or red, which adds classic appeal.

WhoWhatWear reports that camel is one colour that looks good on every skin tone, and adds true luxe to any look. But let’s break down exactly how YOU should wear camel this season:

SKIN TONE

Camel items generally come in three tones: pink, brown and yellow. Choosing the right tone for your skin has a huge impact on your overall complexion. To enhance your natural highlight, warmer skinned individuals should choose camel garments with a yellow tone, whilst cooler toned women should choose a camel garment or accessory with a pink or quartz tone.

STYLING CAMEL

Styling camel is easy. almost any garment and accessory features camel. This week’s post heroes camel in three different looks – corporate, cocktail and casual (but by now, you should know that our casual looks still pack a huge punch! )

styled by Salonee Goyal, curated by Simran Goyal 

CORPORATE

styling tip: wearing a gorgeous silk, camel scarf, draped elegantly across your frame accents your most delicate aspects – your décolletage. This adds timelessness to a corporate look

THE (TOTE)AL PACKAGE

Loading Likes...

When any lady goes out, there are at least five things she will always have on hand. For us, it’s having our phones, wallets, a snack, our lipstick of choice and a glasses case.

With this in mind, today’s post is a guide to selecting the right kind of bag, depending on the place you’re going. We hope you gain some inspiration for updates to your autumn/winter wardrobe as well! But do keep in mind, that bags, like almost any accessory are all year round, depending on how you style them!

CORPORATE

FLORSHEIM                     COLETTE                     KATE SPADE                    CLARE V

It’s a no brainer really. At work, our purses need to fit not only our essentials, but document wallets, a laptop or tablet as well. Monotoned structured totes, in deeper colours like black or brown, or off-white are the safest options because these bags will go with all your ensembles. To change it up a little, finishing your corporate ensemble with a beautiful red or blue work purse is a great idea as well!

DAY TIME CASUAL

COLETTE                           CHLOE                          COLETTE                            ZARA

The key to good skin is hydration right? When out, having a bottle of water is another addition to the list of essentials. Carrying a bag that can not only fit essentials but bits of shopping as well is important. Gravitate towards chic bucket bags or mini backpacks that  are functional, stylish and comfortable to use all day.

EVENINGS

GUESS               CHARLES AND KEITH             CHLOE                             ZARA

Stress free is the policy when going out at night. Light, secure and chic bags are key. Having a zipper and attachable cross body strap are essential. One thing to look for is a bag that has a hidden, secure pocket to store money in. This saves having to carry a wallet as well. Another great option would be to invest in a phone case that has a wallet or card holder feature so all your essential cards (ID, credit card etc) are on you at all times.

A VINTAGE VETERAN: VELVET

Loading Likes...

Materials.

They are the underrated gems that play such an important role on our runways. This season, velvet has made a huge comeback. But given its past dalliances in the 70s and 80s, society has rendered the material unwearable.

So how can a boss lady make such a luxe fabric work for her?

Here’s how:

ACCESSORIES:

boots.png

SHOELLAB

Shoes are the easiest way to incorporate velvet, because the material gets hidden. It’s like having your own little secret in our ensemble. Floral boots are huge right now, especially in a velvet finish. Pair your boots with cropped jeans and a tailored blazer; or let the boots do the talking by wearing a simple monochromatic dress.

necklace.png

ASOS

Elevate your looks with velvet necklaces in colours like Burgundy or navy blue. And to wear velvet for a more casual ensemble, choose necklaces with metals or beading entwined with velvet. Such necklaces compliment Sabrina, off-shoulder or boat necklines!

turban.jpg

NAMJOSH

Try something new to enhance your casual links and give an ensemble personality with a velvet turban.

COUNTRY ROAD

Velvet scarves add texture and shine, perfect for a corporate outfit when paired with a trench coat and pencil dress. For a casual outing, a scarf will always compliment a fail proof jeans, boots and sweater combination.

bag.jpg

SOLE SOCIETY

Bags make a statement on their own. For a corporate setting, finish off your power suit with a structured velvet bag. For the evening, deeper toned velvet evening bags in Burgundy, crimson or purple will add a chic and unique vibe to your look.

CLOTHING:

TOPSHOP                                                                    H&M

Velvet is a soft, cozy yet luxe material flaunting elegance and fluidity. Straighter figures should opt for tops that are flown and smooth over the waist. Curvier figures should select a more fitted top but ensure the top is not too tight and always make sure to tuck it in! Looser velvet tops can be belted to flaunt your curves.

pants.jpg

OLD NAVY

On the bottom, cropped trousers are the most flattering silhouette, especially to take your look from day to night. Pair your trousers with a smart shirt and some pumps, for the perfect corporate look. To take this look to your evening events, simply change up your makeup and swap out your work tote for a detailed clutch.

As for the curvier ladies, while velvet wide leg trousers may be taboo, velvet is a forgiving material and looks fabulous in a slim cut. Choose a length that passes slightly over your ankle to elongate your legs. Tuck in your top and tie your look together with a belt.

skirts.png

ASOS

As for skirts, velvet is a great transitional material, both seasonally and for occasions. Pair a midi velvet skirt with a ruffled top and classic pumps for a daytime corporate look, and simply add a bold lip and lazy curls for the evening. Velvet’s smoothing texture makes it the perfect fabric for curvier women, especially in midi, pencil or A-Line silhouettes. Women flaunting thinner legs can opt for mini skirts or tighter midi skirts. But remember, the elegance of the material should reflect in the cut of the piece as well!

dress.png

BARDOT

Velvet dresses are uncommon, so they’re best to be showcased at events where the dress can do all the talking. All you need with a gorgeous velvet dress are simple accessories in matching metallic tones and a fierce attitude!

hmprod.jpeg

H&M

Velvet jackets and blazers are funky and feminine. They can be paired with a classic corporate skirt and skirt combination, or a tailored jumpsuit for the evening. Structured velvet jackets with tailoring at the waist flatter curvier women best. As for straighter figured women, opting for a masculine silhouette with an oversized blazer hitting the tops of your thighs will accentuate your high points.

OUTFIT INSPIRATION

This week’s ensemble lets a velvet bag do ALL the talking! this look can be taken from day to night easily. The trends featured are navy on black, blazer dresses and sock boots.

SPEECHLESS FOR THE SLEEVELESS

Loading Likes...

Raise your hand if you own a sleeveless jacket, maybe in shearling, maybe with a faux fur detail. That’s right. Every woman has owned a sleeveless jacket at some stage. These jackets are the quintessential autumn layering piece. They are versatile, perfect as a cool statement, and make for great overthrows for when it really cools down.

Today’s post is going to show how to take one sleeveless jacket (below) and style it for work, casual outings and formal occasions. This versatile piece is structured and classy. It features a faux fur collar with leather detailing at the shoulders and a leather belt at the waist.

THE DETAILS

jacket: Seed Heritage

CORPORATE

Faux fur is a glamorous, but a more casual addition to an outfit ensemble. It is not generally associated with an office environment. However, investing in a sleeveless jacket with a detachable fur feature is a bonus. A stricter work dress code is easily adhered to by removing the fur lining and dressing your jacket with a cashmere scarf instead.

And when you leave work for team drinks, simply swap the scarf and fur detail and you’re ready to go!

OUTFIT INSPIRATION

The sleeveless jacket has been styled to accentuate the clean, military feel of the garment – there is no doubt everybody will know the boss lady has arrived!

CASUAL

Ladies, you can never go wrong when pairing a sleeveless jacket with some tailored pants, a snug sweater or boots. It is the ultimate partner for achieving comfort chic style, whether it be with or without the fur. Play around with how you zip up the jacket and accessorise. If fur isn’t your taste, there’s always an alternate option.

OUTFIT INSPIRATION:

Autumn is a season of transition. It is all about layering so bring out those summer pieces and be creative with your looks. When Learing a sleeveless jacket, it’s not only about the colours that I combined. Play around with textures as well, such as, knits, cashmere, fur and microsuede.

OUTFIT INSPIRATION

Why not play on the faux feature of the jacket by introducing a faux leather pant as well? Use elements of your jacket in new ways. A waist belt is not restricted to the jacket, but can be included as an embellishment on the pants instead.

PERUVIAN TO PASHMINA: THE PONCHO

Loading Likes...

Ponchos are a cult classic. With Autumn truly upon us, brands have ventured far and wide to create ponchos in a variety of materials, prints and colours.

This versatile garment suits every woman. And while they are a wardrobe essential, there are a few considerations to keep in mind when choosing the best poncho for you:

PONCHO STYLE

Thinner frames and smaller busts suit ponchos with more structure. Conversely, women with fuller figures or larger busts suit ponchos flaunting a kaftan vibe, so the material can flow over your body.

MATERIAL THICKNESS

Athletic frames suit thicker materials to add volume and curves to your figure. Curvier ramen suit any thickness because ponchos regardless of material will ensure your frame is properly displayed. One thing to note however, is that curvier women should gravitate toward materials that maintain fluidity so the poncho drapes over the figure. And as for women with a fuller stomach, a more stiff material will flatter your frame.

NECKLINE

Necklines frame both the face and the upper body. understanding the necklines that work for you are important to ensure your poncho sits well on your body. Choosing the right neckline involves considering shoulder breadth and bust size.

broadnarrow

ACCESSORISING PONCHOS

To balance a broader shoulder and heavier bust, add an accessory that drapes down your torso, such as a long necklace. Ponchos can also feature vertical button detailing at the front. To tie in another trend from this season, opt for a statement belt to enhance your curves even more.

AW INTRO YTG

Although we look similar, our body types, fashion favourites and go-to pieces for each season are completely different. This post seeks to inspire you, so you can organise your wardrobes to be season ready before the first chilly breeze hits!

Please note that this guide is for Sydney winters. We don’t have freezing winters here. There’s no snow. The coldest it gets is 8 degrees (celsius). So please keep that in mind!

Simran’s MINIMALIST guide to autumn dressing:

I’ve always gravitated towards a minimalist fashion style. I like simple pieces with interesting cuts or designs. I like to be comfortable when I’m out and about, and layering is an essential facet to my wardrobe. My wardrobe is stocked with basics, monotoned garments and pieces that flaunt simpler patterns.

What elevates my wardrobe is firstly, my love for accessorising. Tthere’s nothing quite like jazzing up a white tee and blue jeans combination with some funky statement jewellery. Secondly I have an eye for smaller details on my clothes. I love a boxy white tee, or having little logos and embellishments on my tops. Grommets, buckles, zips and stitched on detailing, especially when they’re asymmetrically placed are some of my favourite accent elements.

My style is comfort, all day every day. And as an inverted triangle figure, I’ve curated a guide for the clothing items I cannot live without during Autumn and Winter.

Salonee’s CLASSIC guide to autumn/winter dressing:

To put it in a nutshell, my style is classic. I love investing in pieces that can carry me through a variety of seasons. I gravitate towards well-tailored garments such as pencil skirts, fitted blouses and structured blazers. But style reflects personality right? When I style myself, it isn’t just about the clothes. It’s about portraying my emotions through hair, accessories and my ensemble.

My wardrobe is multifunctional. I can take my garments from corporate to cocktail by simply switching out my shoes or changing my hair. I love playing with all colours, patterns and textures, and enjoy experimenting with new and exciting elements.

My style embodies looking and feeling great in whatever I wear. And as a woman with a curvier figure, I’ve curated an essential Autumn/Winter style guide perfect to flaunt my curves, even during the coldest of Winter days.

WHERE’S WALLY?

Loading Likes...

Stripes. Who doesn’t love a good striped garment? Stripes take us from day to night, they’re chic, wearable and make us look put together whether we’re running to the grocery store or running a meeting.

The beauty about wearing stripes is that there is no formula. There are considerations, yes, but stripes are so versatile that they flatter any figure. The two main considerations are stripe thickness and colour combination, to ensure you look flattering from all angles.

ON TOP:

Length and fitting:

For the curvier ladies, choose a top with a tighter fit and a shorter length. We’re talking cropped tops or jumpers, or longer tops that tuck in neatly into skirts, pants or jeans.

THE PEOPLE                                                                   PIPER

On the flip side, ladies with broader shoulders or fuller upper bodies should consider looser, longer tops that elongate the upper body.

top3.png

JACQUI-E

Neckline:

Necklines are a personal preference. However, here’s a great guide that summarises the types of necklines that exist. Shop around and see what flatters your figure best!

ON THE BOTTOM:

Pants:

Horizontal stripes on pants are pretty rare. Vertical stripes are definitely the more fitting of the two when it comes to styling pants. Fitting is essential to making stripes work for you down below:

If you do have a heavier bottom half or fuller thighs, go for trouser styled pants with a tailored finish. Culottes or straight trousers featuring a prominent dark stripe will create balance, especially if you have a narrower upper body.

 JACQUI-E                                                               TOPSHOP

If you flaunt thin, long legs, enhance the athletic shape with trousers where the more prominent strip is a lighter colour. Go for slim fit trousers or printed Ponte pants.

pant3.png

MISSGUIDED

Skirts:

Stripes on skirts can be vertical, horizontal, oblique or a mix of the three. With different cuts and styles, you can really get away with wearing stripes regardless of your figure. The main thing to consider is stripe direction, and skirt fitting:

Ladies with curvier bottom halves should gravitate for vertical or oblique stripes, to ensure they don’t overaccentuate the lovely curves they possess. If you have a narrow bottom half or a fuller stomach, you’re in luck because stripes in any direction will flatter your form!

As for fitting, curvier ladies should choose a skirt that doesn’t stick too much to their figure. Pencil skirts, a-line skirts or skirts following a mermaid silhouette are excellent choices. A tighter skirt should generally be paired with a thick dark stripes to ensure the attention is kept up top. This is easily attainable by wearing a belt.

ASOS

On the other hand, women with straighter figures can wear any skirt. A striped skirt is perfect for bringing attention down below and making your figure look more balanced! For our gorgeous boss mums who might have a fuller stomach but shapely legs, definitely consider a skirt with a more flounced silhouette and avoid anything that is too snug on the stomach. After all, comfort is key!
