$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

BREAKING THROUGH YOUR INTERVIEW (PART 2)

Loading Likes...

Part of developing a good aesthetic is also maintaining a strong budget. It isn’t always about the money. What you have in your pocket today isn’t the only driver when considering your corporate wardrobe.

It’s unreasonable to be expected to shell out hundreds of dollars on a corporate wardrobe, especially if your vibe is styling on trend items. We have three main tips to think about when looking at how you budget for a corporate wardrobe:

LOOKS UNDER $100

If you’re looking to spend under $100, invest in quality basics like a black pencil skirt from retailers such as Uniqlo or Target. H&M is a great option for blouses or trend items, and also stocks a variety of blazers throughout the year. For bags, look out for stores such as Colette and Strandbags. Online retailers such as ASOS are ideal for shoes, and it doesn’t hurt to venture into factory outlets either. Remember, style doesn’t mean the latest season or the highest brand.

LOOKS UNDER $300

If you’re looking to spend a little more, invest in garments that you can dress up or down depending on the garment. Buying a quality tailored dress from Review with belt loops or an asymetric neckline in a classic cut is ideal. Changing up the belt you thread through, or adding a pop of colour with a fresh coat of lipstick will immediately enhance your look.

Stores such as Portmans, Forcast and Jacqui-E are reliable for everything corporate. Zara will provide trendier items, and stores like Oxford and Brooks Brothers will always supply quality shirts, blazers and jackets. As for shoes and accessories, look or brands such as JAG, Cellini, Nine West and Wittner for quality leather goods that won’t break the bank.

LOOKS UNDER $500

For a larger budget, our advice is to invest in accessories rather than clothes. Do your research and find a quality, high end bag or pair of shoes that will carry you through numerous seasons. Brands we gravitate toward are Fendi, Escada, Prada, Fossil and Gucci.

However, if your heart is set on a high end corporate wardrobe, designers from Cue, David Lawrence or boutique Australian made designers will always provide unique, quality garments.

OTHER THINGS TO CONSIDER:

TIP 1: research

There are always sales, either online or in-store. Do your research and know your market so you aren’t beat out when the time comes to purchase new items for your corporate closet.

TIP 2: teeth and skin

A clean smile and fresh breath are another accessory to consider. Invest in a quality lip balm, which will prevent cracking and add a little shine to your lips. Even if makeup isn’t your thing, there’s no time like the present to learn how to maintain a neat base. Work with concealer and a setting powder to ensure your skin is even, fresh and glowy. Using a settling powder will also protect against any nervous sweat appearing on your t-zone or upper lip.

TIP 3: posture

You could wear a $1,000 ensemble but still fail to look put together. Standing straight and emulating confidence is key. People notice everything, so ensure your walk, talk and handshake are firm and confident. Engage in good conversation and don’t forget to smile and stand proud. Getting an interview is a huge success!

OUTFIT INSPIRATION

This week’s ensemble is a challenge to create a look under $100. We didn’t quite manage to incorporate a bag, but adding it all up, our look cost $84 all together!

BREAK THROUGH YOUR INTERVIEW (PART ONE)

Loading Likes...

Your resumé and references are stellar. You know you’re a shoe-in for the new role. But what about your ensemble? Nailing an interview is about possessing true confidence, both inside and out. You want to stand out both on paper, and in person.

This week’s post is a guide to inspire how you can take your interview ensembles to the next level.

Showing personality in your clothing speaks volumes at a job interview. It is an excellent way to demonstrate your creativity, and single you out from the rest of the applicants. Having a different sense of style in the interview room or assessment centre is a great conversation starter, and will ensure you are remembered!

COLOUR:

Business Insider provides a detailed explanation of the characteristics of different colours and their impact on a colleague. For example, black conveys leadership, whilst blue creates a sense of calm or trust.

BLACK

Black screams power player. When wearing black, mix and match a black skirt, or black blazer with other colours. If you are wearing a black dress, wear one that features unique detailing at the neckline or flaunts a different hemline. Add some unique jewellery, a pop of colour or a contrasting bag to brighten your look. There’s no harm in owning a black power suit. Play it up with textures, tones and your blouse underneath to really make a statement!

BLUE

True to the hue, blue ignites trust and loyalty. Blue is one of the safest colours to wear to an interview. Navy blue is both classic and chic, and has been voted the preferred colour to impress at an interview. Navy blue works on any garment or accessory!

Grey denotes independence and control over logic and analytics. Pants and blazers in grey are perfect when paired with olive, teal or dark purple blouses. Our advice would be to go toward a steel or charcoal grey, to ensure your ensemble does not get washed out under fluorescent lighting.

WHITE

White indicates softness. It’s hard to truly radiate self confidence in a white ensemble, and you do not want to strike your future employers as someone who lacks creativity or passion. White detailing is acceptable, but try and steer away from the white shirt, black bottom combination.

BROWN

Brown is an interesting corporate colour. Brown invokes dependability in the eyes of an onlooker. The most flattering way to feature brown is through accessories like shoes, bags or your watch strap. A darker brown, in a more patent finish definitely screams classy.

RED

Red makes all the stops. It’s hard not to feel sexy, powerful and unstoppable in red. For interviews however, maybe steer clear of the Hilary Clinton-esque show stopper and save that ensemble for when you truly own the boardroom. Crimson and maroon blouses are great additions to a pant suit, to add femininity. Wearing red in accessories such as a thin belt to compliment a black dress, or your earrings are a great way to feature the colour as well.

REST OF THE RAINBOW

COLours like orange, yellow, purple and green convey creativity and vivacity. These colours have a bad rap, with most women arguing they should only be worn to interviews in creative fields such as media. However, as firm believers of styling correctly, the first thing to consider is where you are interviewing, and who you will be speaking with. Read up on the company’s dress code. If formal business attire is the way to go, maybe save the yellow dress and instead, flaunt gold in artfully dainty jewellery, or on your bag’s hardware.

Whilst orange on black is very on trend for autumn/winter 2018, the contrast is too stark. Giving your interviewers a shock may not be the best way to go. Avoid neon and exceptionally bright colours, and opt for deeper, more sober tones of colours such as burnt ombre instead of orange, violet instead of lavender or forest green instead of turquoise.

BALANCING COLOUR:

tip one: swap your white blouse for another colour.

tip two: ensure your bag is both functional and aesthetic. A contrast bag will brighten any ensemble (but ensure the colour choice is still appropriate for the workplace. A neon yellow bag won’t do so well at a professional services firm, no matter how charming you are).

tip three: belts don’t just have to be for ensuring your pants stay up. Belts are great finishing elements to any look.

tip four: Black leather pumps are a safe bet for an interview. If you can, try find a variation on the black stiletto pump. Having a small detail on your shoe adds some excitement, whilst still keeping your look modest and professional.

tip five: depending on the company, wearing a lip colour will add glow to your face. If in doubt though, a dark nude that works to your skin tone is fool proof.
