One of the highlights of my trip to Melbourne for the launch of the Lexus LC 500 was the beautiful dinner we had at Doot Doot Doot restaurant at the Jackalope Hotel. The dress code was cocktail and I wanted to go for something a bit different, so instead of a dress I opted for a black long sleeved turtleneck and a floral maxi skirt. I thought it was just the right level of dressy for a formal dinner and was also incredibly comfortable so it ticked all the right boxes. My minimalist studded Alaia heels were the perfect shoes to complement the outfit and when paired with the black top it really allowed the bold print of the skirt to take centre stage.
Everything about this ensemble by Fendi is bold and vibrant which is perfect for another busy day at Fashion Week. As soon as I saw the balloon sleeves of this blouse I knew I wanted to continue the voluminous silhouette by pairing it with culottes. The waved pattern on the pants and the waved detailing on the blouse help give the outfit continuity along with the hints of blue in both. When it comes to volume it was important to have the nipped in waist of the pants in order to avoid the outfit from overwhelming my frame and the streamlined heels to act as a counterpoint to the billowy nature of the rest of my look. I also decided upon a forest green Camilla and Marc coat to complement the blue tones in my pants and blouse and kept accessories to a minimum-just a pair of Celine sunglasses and a simple Jerome Dreyfuss clutch.
