The Tricks To Transition

Loading Likes...

Winter’s arrival doesn’t mean parting ways with our favourite spring and summer pieces. As boss ladies, we enjoy having access to all our pieces year round. The key to looking season appropriate is layering. It’s a well known fashion concept, and this week’s post dives into the considerations you need to make when it comes to layering under dresses.

COLOUR COMBINATIONS:

Getting your colour combination right is a tiered approach. The first tier is your dress colour. Is it bold, or is it subtle? Bolder coloured dresses are best paired with basic tops. Neutral toned dresses have more flexibility. Gain an understanding of the colours that work well with your dress colour. Referring to guides like this will help clear any confusions you may have.

DRESS NECKLINE:

The best dresses to layer under are dresses with a high (turtleneck or mockneck) or plunge neckline. Under a high neckline, any layering piece will go, as only the layering piece’s arms will be on display. Under a plunge neckline, layering pieces with a tight fit look the most appropriate. A personal favourite is layering a tight mockneck under a dress featuring a v neck plunge.

Two other types of dresses to consider are overall dresses and slip dresses. These dresses allow for more experimentation because of their cut and fit.

A final consideration to note:

Whilst material and detailing is a personal choice, remember to strike balance with the pieces you’re layering. Bold, brightly embellished layering pieces are fine so long as the dress is simple.

OUTFIT INSPIRATION:

This Zara dress is a summer staple. It is a multi-faceted dress, appropriate for both corporate and cocktail. The dress’ plunge neckline is shown off by layering a cashmere turtleneck in black, for cohesion. To highlight the gromit detailing on the dress, the accessories and boots are simple, classic and understated. A well tailored charcoal grey coat with strong button detailing is the final layering element to pull the look together.

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.

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!

styled by Salonee Goyal, curated by Simran Goyal 

THE DETAILS

top: Uniqlo | skirt: Tokito | bag: Charles & Keith | shoes: Nine West | watch: Omega | earrings: Lovisa | lipstick: Revlon

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.

COCKTAIL

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.

How to make snake print work for you.

Every girl has that one statement piece in their wardrobe that they adore, but never know what to pair it with. Are you currently  facing this dilemma?

My statement piece is a gorgeous pair of snake print pumps. And for three years, they have been sitting in my wardrobe, neatly packed away because I haven’t found a way to style it to my satisfaction.

Inspiration to style these statement pumps struck me while I was choosing outfits for the work week ahead. I set myself the challenge to make these gorgeous heels corporate appropriate.

styled by Salonee Goyal, curated by Simran Goyal 

the details:

Fashion is all about balance. When you have a statement piece like a snake print shoe, it is important to ensure the remainder of the outfit doesn’t draw attention.

This is why I combined a crisp black blazer with black skinny work pants and a lace top. Androgynous style is not only on trend right now, but has inspired many of my power suit ensembles. On one hand, I have a feminine pair of shoes, so why not balance it out by venturing towards tailored business pieces?

6A70B64A-B7A7-4487-9313-96EF7A3D2E72

My favourite part about this look is the fact that I encompassed a crop top in it. Crop tops are taboo in corporate ensembles. My style tip to wear a crop top at work is to pair it with a high-waisted bottom, such as the skinny pants I’m wearing. A pencil skirt would also look exceptionally flattering. The key is to ensure your crop top is neatly tucked in.

hair:

To keep the look sleek and professional given how bold it is, I put my hair into a neat top-knot.

makeup:

Power suits possess a more masculine edge. This is why I decided to keep my makeup neutral. Neutral makeup is corporate appropriate and does not draw attention away from the delicacy of the lace, or the boldness of the snake print.

accessories:

It is essential to ensure your accessories compliment each other. I decided to choose natural materials and monochromatic colours to accentuate the snake print detail and the contrast of black lace on a green underlay in my crop top. For my bag, I went with a black, leather tote to make my power suit pop. I paired simple black studs with a silver detailing that matched that of the lace crop top. And to finish my look, I went with a vintage Omega watch, with a black leather strap.

As I’ve shown below, this ensemble can also be paired with a bold bag to give it a more dramatic edge. I used a green cross body bag, but removed shoulder strap to make the look more feminine.
