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!

 MORGAN                                                                       Y.A.S

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.

PORTMANS                                                            PORTMANS

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.

OUTFIT INSPIRATION

STREET APPEAL

Loading Likes...

With Fashion Week done and dusted for another season, it’s time to talk what’s new, exciting and on trend. Namely, we wanted to focus on the plethora of street style inspirations our instagram was flooded with.

Street style is everywhere. It’s cool, relaxed and a true celebration of tailoring, material and combination. Edge, unexpectedly high levels of sass and a sleek nonchalance are to be expected.

But what exactly is street style?

Street style, as the name suggests, has always been there. But it rose to prominence post World War II. An acceptance of different style and flaunting femininity or masculinity through androgynous tailoring is what we associate with street style. It’s a true celebration of quality materials and textures, and allows any style icon to be comfortable all day. Sneakers, asymmetry and unique tailored cuts are essential elements of street style.

So what went down at fashion week? 

Mercedes Benz Fashion Week was a true celebration of how Sydney, as a fashion conglomerate in its own right, displays street style reminiscent of what Sydney is – young, fresh and laidback. The vibe is moody, carefree and promotes true comfort whilst breaking fashion barriers. Wider framed aviator frames, the juxtaposition of leather and pale florals, bold and monotoned atheleisure and a celebration of tailoring that took frame and size to the limit were all on show this year:

This week’s outfit draws on our favourite aspects of street style – mixing textures and size. We stayed true to our femininity by flaunting the sharpest aspects of the body. The look is clean, sharp and excessively cool in that effortless way. We amalgamated power suiting and street style to create a mixed look with cuffed trousers, an oversized vintage velvet blazer (sans top of course) to take control of the top, and finished the look with a biting pair of slingbacks.

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! )

A VINTAGE VETERAN: VELVET

Loading Likes...

Materials.

They are the underrated gems that play such an important role on our runways. This season, velvet has made a huge comeback. But given its past dalliances in the 70s and 80s, society has rendered the material unwearable.

So how can a boss lady make such a luxe fabric work for her?

Here’s how:

ACCESSORIES:

SHOELLAB

Shoes are the easiest way to incorporate velvet, because the material gets hidden. It’s like having your own little secret in our ensemble. Floral boots are huge right now, especially in a velvet finish. Pair your boots with cropped jeans and a tailored blazer; or let the boots do the talking by wearing a simple monochromatic dress.

ASOS

Elevate your looks with velvet necklaces in colours like Burgundy or navy blue. And to wear velvet for a more casual ensemble, choose necklaces with metals or beading entwined with velvet. Such necklaces compliment Sabrina, off-shoulder or boat necklines!

NAMJOSH

Try something new to enhance your casual links and give an ensemble personality with a velvet turban.

COUNTRY ROAD

Velvet scarves add texture and shine, perfect for a corporate outfit when paired with a trench coat and pencil dress. For a casual outing, a scarf will always compliment a fail proof jeans, boots and sweater combination.

bag.jpg

SOLE SOCIETY

Bags make a statement on their own. For a corporate setting, finish off your power suit with a structured velvet bag. For the evening, deeper toned velvet evening bags in Burgundy, crimson or purple will add a chic and unique vibe to your look.

CLOTHING:

TOPSHOP                                                                    H&M

Velvet is a soft, cozy yet luxe material flaunting elegance and fluidity. Straighter figures should opt for tops that are flown and smooth over the waist. Curvier figures should select a more fitted top but ensure the top is not too tight and always make sure to tuck it in! Looser velvet tops can be belted to flaunt your curves.

OLD NAVY

On the bottom, cropped trousers are the most flattering silhouette, especially to take your look from day to night. Pair your trousers with a smart shirt and some pumps, for the perfect corporate look. To take this look to your evening events, simply change up your makeup and swap out your work tote for a detailed clutch.

As for the curvier ladies, while velvet wide leg trousers may be taboo, velvet is a forgiving material and looks fabulous in a slim cut. Choose a length that passes slightly over your ankle to elongate your legs. Tuck in your top and tie your look together with a belt.

skirts.png

ASOS

As for skirts, velvet is a great transitional material, both seasonally and for occasions. Pair a midi velvet skirt with a ruffled top and classic pumps for a daytime corporate look, and simply add a bold lip and lazy curls for the evening. Velvet’s smoothing texture makes it the perfect fabric for curvier women, especially in midi, pencil or A-Line silhouettes. Women flaunting thinner legs can opt for mini skirts or tighter midi skirts. But remember, the elegance of the material should reflect in the cut of the piece as well!

BARDOT

Velvet dresses are uncommon, so they’re best to be showcased at events where the dress can do all the talking. All you need with a gorgeous velvet dress are simple accessories in matching metallic tones and a fierce attitude!

H&M

Velvet jackets and blazers are funky and feminine. They can be paired with a classic corporate skirt and skirt combination, or a tailored jumpsuit for the evening. Structured velvet jackets with tailoring at the waist flatter curvier women best. As for straighter figured women, opting for a masculine silhouette with an oversized blazer hitting the tops of your thighs will accentuate your high points.

OUTFIT INSPIRATION

This week’s ensemble lets a velvet bag do ALL the talking! this look can be taken from day to night easily. The trends featured are navy on black, blazer dresses and sock boots.

THE DETAILS

blazer dress: Oxford | top: H&M | boots: Diana Ferrari | bag: Escada | watch: IWC | earrings: Lovisa | lipstick: Kat Von D
