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! )

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.

OUTFIT INSPIRATION

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.

Orange and black? This colour combination is synonymous with halloween. Think bats, pumpkins and your trusty dracula ensemble. But what if we showed you how you can make orange and black work for you? When done right, as the runways in Australia have shown, orange and black makes for a chic and bright ensemble. This colour combination will never fail to brighten up even the gloomiest of autumn days, and is both bold and sophisticated.

ALTUZARRA                                                       PINGPONG                                   CUE

 

ACCESSORIES:

Accessories are the best way to dip your toe into a new trend. A pair of statement earrings, a bag accented with orange, or adorned with an orange silk scarf; bright orange pumps to finish off your powersuit; and even adding are great, and understated ways to work this trend.

TOPS AND BOTTOMS

Orange and black can feature as more than just the colour of clothing. Why not pair orange and black in prints and patterns? This is a great way to integrate both hues into your wardrobe, especially if you’re experimenting with the combination or are less keen on wearing orange and black together.

Consider your skin type when you’re choosing the type of orange to wear. Moreover, keep in mind which aspects of your body carry more emphasis. If you are more curvier on your lower half, avoid wearing bright orange pants or skirts that mould to your silhouette. Orange is a great colour for ensuring the attention remains on the area of the body the garment is on. Why not add some dimension to your ensemble by wearing a well tailored orange blazer?

I’M ISOLA MARRAS

On the other hand, women with straighter figures, if daring enough, can easily work a tighter orange pair or pants or skirt. The key is pairing such garments with a fitted, polished black top and a fool proof pair of black pumps to tie the look together.

 

ASOS                                                              MISSGUIDED

And as for the women who have a fuller waistline and broader shoulders, select orange skirts with a flirty and flounced silhouette, or trousers in a smart cut and neat ankle cuffs. A longline statement blazer is also a great choice.

OUTFIT INSPIRATION

As a cool toned woman, I didn’t want to dabble in bright oranges, simply because the seasons are changing in Sydney, and Autumn is upon us. Instead, I played the orange on black trend to my favour by pairing blood orange with black. It still counts right?

I paired a gorgeous blood orange dress with leather pumps and a black trench coat. I cinched in my waist with a thin black belt and kept my hair sleek and professional. This combination ensured both colours stood out and showed their own personalities, without clashing messily.

AUTUMN 2018

Loading Likes...

Red. Plaid. Moody florals.

Autumn is finally here, so today, we bring to you a look book featuring the hottest Autumn trends, straight from the runways of Paris and New York. Our special twist, however, is that these ensembles don’t require you to purchase an entirely new wardrobe.

BEHIND THE LENS:

As a budding photographer I (Simran) wanted to highlight Sydney’s raw urban vibe. Sydney doesn’t possess the same constant motion like New York or London do. Our street vibe is more relaxed. There is a real air of stylishly owning the boardwalk or footpath, strutting down George Street with a long black in your hand. It’s urban chic blanketed by romanticised relaxation. Even on a Monday morning, Sydney city pulses with an aura that encourages us to groove to work, rather than push and shove as we run to catch a train or bus.

With this in mind, I wanted to capture organic photos in the heart of Sydney. Two different locations were selected for this lookbook – Martin Place and Barangaroo. Being the old town heart of Sydney, Martin Place is a walk through history, with stunning sandstone buildings and architectural marvels. In complete antithesis, Barangaroo is minimalist, effortless and cool. The organic fusion between modern simplicity, metal and nature makes Barangaroo unique. Beyond the modern glass structures, we still find solace in the harbour, lapping at the shores of our business district.

This lookbook is an amalgamation of what Salonee and I stand for – being independent, power woman making our marks in the history books. These looks are feminine, sassy, eye-catching and most importantly, wearable. I couldn’t have chosen better locations to curate such an enigmatic collection with my sister.

This collection was styled by Salonee Goyal and curated by Simran Goyal

GETTING DOWN AND DOTTY

Incorporated trends: Polka Dots | Sheer | Belt | Embellished Shoes

This look embodies casual, chic style. It’s perfect for casual Fridays in a corporate environment or for any day event. Polka dots are elevated by the sheer material, taking this conventionally girly print to a classier, mature level.

RED HOT

Incorporated trends: Red | Blue on Black

Every boss lady needs an outfit that works for both corporate and evening occasions. Red is the perfect colour to accomplish this. By combining a bold, sophisticated, red blouse with a blue pencil skirt, and tying the look together with a black waist belt, you’ll be on point all day at any occasion. And of course, there’s nothing like a classic pair of black stilettos to add drama and highlight the true feminine power of a boss lady.

WINTER BLOOMING

Incorporated trends: Winter Florals | Midi Skirts | Belts | Mixed prints

For those cooler autumn days, why not incorporate dark, moody florals into your look? This look is perfect for casual, corporate settings and day events. It’s a timeless look because of the structured midi skirt – a perfect addition to any wardrobe. Finish the look with a textured statement belt that works on the same colour scheme as your bag and shoes. This will  really add glamour to an otherwise comfortable and timeless Autumn look.

NATURE’S CALLING

Incorporated trends: Neutral Tones (camel, sheepskin) | Midi Skirts | Belts

Neutral tones. Is there anything more elegant for a corporate setting? Capitalise on how in demand neutrals are this season by layering them together in one look. Taking neutrals in different shades and accompanying them with garments of varying textures is one of the simplest ways to throw together a sleek ensemble.

MATCH MAKER

incorporate trends: power suit | plastic/PVC| Nlue on black | red | fringes

All boss ladies NEED a power suit this season. Designers featured bold, monochromatic ensembles, particularly in red and navy blue. But to make power suits wearable for everyday whilst still incorporating trends like fringing and red, feature the bolder elements as your accessories. This look is commanding, with the striped white blazer, contrasting black trousers and PVC white pumps. The red tote elevates the look even further, with a charming little fringe detail to add a flirty bit of fun to a strong, no-nonsense ensemble.

CITY CHICA

incorporated trends: Baker boy caps | plaid | neutrals | belts

Here’s an ensemble that takes a fun spin on the whole corporate, power woman aura the runways gave us this season. This look is comfortable, chic and effortlessly conveys androgyny. Plaid doesn’t always have to be in a jacket or dress. Instead of going out and buying new trend pieces, borrow the plaid belt from your chic summer dress, and use it as a waist belt for your trousers instead. Furthermore, tie in a baker boy cap to give your look some street style dimension.

SALAMANCA SOIREE

incorporated trends: pink |transitional summer dresses | neutrals | belts

Who says the onset of Autumn means we need to pack away our beloved summer florals? Take your summer dress into autumn by adding a statement belt to your dress, and finishing the look with a pair of autumn appropriate boots. The combination of pink with floral prints and pops of natural tones will smoothly transition you from summer to autumn, and of course, ensure you stand out!

GRIDED GIRL ABOUT TOWN#

incorporated trends: plaid | masculine tailoring | laced up boots

Day and night events don’t always need to be sober or chic in that feminine, traditional sense. Play on masculine traits by wearing well tailored blazers, especially if they have shoulder pads. Tie in grey and green, with a classic pair of skinny jeans, and create contrast by selecting a fitted, knit.

FOLK FLAIR

incorporated trends: folk/paisley prints | plaid | midi | fringing | circle bag

This look is an interesting fusion of sober textures, neutral tones and bold prints. Folk prints aren’t every woman’s niche, so the challenge in this look involved making such a different print wearable. With fashion, it is all about balance. To mute the boldness of the pattern on the dress, I have paired the garment with a long line cardigan. Embellishing your bag with a paisley silk scarf is perfect to heighten any ensemble, whether it is for corporate or evening events.

GALACTIC GODDESS

incorporated trends: galactic print | embellished shoes | metallics

No lookbook can be complete without an evening ensemble. This look goes beyond most comfort zones. It’s fun and different, and plays an interesting perspective on the galactic vibe Chanel featured on their runway. Galactic print doesn’t have to be literal stars and planets… it is an opportunity to dive a little deeper. The top, is actually a dress with an asymmetric hem tucked into a pair of split leg culottes. To add even more drama and brighten the look, I selected a pair of studded, metallic stilettos and shiny jewellery. My hair has been styled into a sleek top knot up-do with tight dutch braid detail at the back of the head to make it even more futuristic.
