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.

Got a glamorous event to attend? A faux fur feature on your jacket will add a decadence to any ensemble!

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.

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.

This week’s ensemble plays with texture and tone through the contrast elements in the poncho’s softness, the dress’ sheen and the masculinity emulated by the boots and accessories.

CLASSIC COMFORT: THE CULOTTE

Loading Likes...

Let’s face it, culottes have been the colossal comeback fashion was waiting for. From colour to stripes, and even floral, brands have found countless ways to innovate with this versatile garment.

We all love culottes for their comfort. The best part is, that they can be worn in various ways to suit a plethora of occasions; just by changing your top, shoes or accessories.

This week, I have prepared three different looks that celebrate culottes – corporate, casual and cocktail.

CORPORATE

Minimalist fashion is on trend this season, and what better way to incorporate two trends whilst still being work appropriate?

I paired my culottes with a white, scoop-neck t-shirt (tucked in tightly) and a cropped three-quarter sleeve, textured white blazer. To draw attention upward, I added a black, leather belt; and completed the look with a pair of black, leather, stiletto pumps.

For women with less curvier figures (rectangular, inverted triangle or apple), my advice is to forego the belt and tuck the t-shirt in a more relaxed manner, so that the crease sits neatly at the pant’s waist line. Alternatively, you could wear a white cropped t-shirt to achieve the same effect. Wearing a longer blazer will aid in drawing attention to your lower half.

I accessorised with a vintage Omega watch, dainty white and gold statement earrings; and a soft makeup look featuring a pink lip. You can never go wrong with a structured black bag to tie together a corporate ensemble.

CASUAL

This ensemble is chic and edgy – perfect for a day out with friends.

A black camisole with scalloped detailing on the bust has been neatly tucked into the camel culottes. Black heeled leather sock boots give this look drama, whist maintaining feminine flair. I have draped a leather jacket over the shoulders – the ultimate edge icon.

Laced up leather boots are another great shoe alternative, if that’s more your style.

A black crop top of similar style would also look exceptional with this outfit. But if this is not your style, and your body falls under the rectangular, apple or inverted triangle categories, then opt for a camisole that is loose and hangs neatly over the pant’s waist line.

I’ve added a link to a Wonder Woman inspired look created by Kayley Melissa, which I recreated to increase the look’s drama.

 

COCKTAIL

To take these culottes out for the night, I have selected a black top with a Sabrina neck-line that has been neatly tucked in. I chose to add a white marble texture as my third detail, and this features on my sandals, my earrings and my ring. My hair is lightly waved and pinned back into a half up-do.

I’ve added another link to a hair tutorial by Missy Sue, which inspired my own up-do:
