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!

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.

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.

NIGHT LIGHTS

Loading Likes...

Today’s post is a celebration of the glitz and glamour. But not in the traditional way. I want to show you how to combine asymmetry with delicacy, for the perfect night out look. This look is versatile, chic and doesn’t compromise either style or comfort. In my mind, those are the key elements to ensuring you have a fabulous night out.

So let’s get started:

The details:

This ensemble celebrates a statement top. My ideal night out involves a lot of dancing, and I never want to compromise my comfort whilst I’m breaking out a killer dance sequence with my ladies. There are three key elements to this top that make it such a great piece in your wardrobe. The first is the asymmetrical hemline, providing a sassy and edgy cut to an otherwise feminine silhouette. The second element is the diamond neckline and complementing spaghetti straps. The combination of neckline style and strap width reveal just the right amount of skin whilst remaining classy. The final element is the shiny beading on the embroidered flowers, adding a touch of pizazz.

To accentuate the asymmetry, I’ve matched the top’s black underlay and beading, with a pair of black high waisted skinny jeans. My jeans are a denim blend, making them more stretchy, and more comfortable to dance the night away.

I couldn’t resist breaking out one of the most glamourous shoes in my collection. The muted silver sequins draw attention to the grey tones in the top, and further enhance the impact of the beading, especially from an onlooker’s perspective.

To create balance, my accessories are subtle. I chose a simple pair of black pearl studs with a silver embellishment, and a bright, silver bracelet with deep purple stones. This accessory combination gives the outfit a small pop of colour without stealing the attention from the top and shoes.

While I haven’t shown you a picture of me wearing the ensemble, I would frame this look with loose, messy waves to exude the excitement of a great night out. And while we’re at it, why not also play with bold makeup colours? I would go for a vampy lip and full lashes, or even a silver toned smokey eye. A pop of deep purple would be the perfect addition to this look.

If heels aren’t your shoe of choice, don’t sweat it. A sparkly pair of sandals would also work perfectly with this look. These are some of my top picks:
