What I wore this week

25th November, 2021

With pockets of sunshine between the rainy days this week, I was able to wear a few new pieces that are probably a bit more into summer territory, but also had to revert back to slightly more cool weather pieces. Such is life with transseasonal weather, am I right? That said, I was excited to be able to embrace some fresh looks, ranging from summer frocks to a two piece knit set I’m all about right now. Here’s what I wore this week.

I adore this new set by the label Significant Other. I love the oatmeal hue as it’s so easily worked back with multiple things and also the ribbed texture which gives it an element of interest. I like the tie feature on the top as it gives it a bit more of a statement feel and allows it to hold its own when worked back with other things such as jeans or tailored pants. I don’t think you can ever really go wrong with a set, because it’s such an easy shortcut to a stylish look.

You can’t go wrong with jeans and a white top, so I often embrace this look but just switch out the pieces. In this instance I wore a white sleeveless tee with padded shoulder detail by Good American and paired them with a pair of high waisted jeans. I wore this top when out and about running errands as it’s comfy yet polished.

I love having a collection of dresses on hand as I can always rely on them on days when I need to get out the door fast. This sleeveless, military inspired dress by Acler is the perfect elevated casual look I love because it can work for myriad occasions. I can wear this dress to go shopping, to hang out with the girls, go out to lunch or head out to a meeting. All it requires is to change up the accessories which is always the sign of a great wardrobe piece.

Bold brights are always my fave thing about summery pieces and this dress, by one of my go-to labels Steele is a new piece I have introduced into my weekly outfit rotation. It’s so comfy, and so fun with its floral print and vibrant pink hues. The gathered neckline and the puff sleeves also give it a feminine touch. I wore simple Chanel slingbacks on this day as I wanted to dress it up a bit, but it easily works with a great pair of sandals. I added a pair of peach Le Specs sunnies to finish off the look.

What I Wore: Purple Reign

12th April, 2021

I was hosting a launch for Wanderluxe sleepwear at Sydney’s Chiswick so I wanted to wear something that was bold, bright and fun. So when this colour block look by Acler entered the picture I couldn’t pass it up as it fit all the criteria I was looking for. The colours really make this look. The lavender one shoulder top added a gem-like element to this outfit, while the rust coloured trousers help offset the ultra glam vibe of the top, striking just the right balance. I think this is one of my favourite outfit formulas, a pair of tailored trousers worked back with a dressy top really is a match made in heaven.

When you’re wanting colour to shine, I think accoutrements have to be complementary but not over the top. At the same time, I think events always require a little extra effort in the accessories department. So these looped Manning Cartell earrings added a little statement element to my look but they weren’t too busy so they didn’t overwhelm the rest of my outfit. The black Bottega heels added a fashion forward touch, but they didn’t take away from the look and feel of this ensemble, which was all about embracing the striking effect of colour blocking.

What I Wore: Summer Daze

29th December, 2020

While it’s not quite the same sunny weather in Sydney as when I did this shoot a few weeks back, I’m still very much enjoying peak summer dress season. There are so many great silhouettes around right now, one of which is a really great voluminous sleeve. Puff sleeve details are very much front and centre for many brands, and they’ve become a firm favourite of mine because they can create such drama and impact but are still really feminine and fun.

This Acler dress is the kind of style that I know I’ll have on high rotation over the next few months. The silhouette is playful and made for summer days, while the finishing touches such as the sculptural buttons, the bodice-style waist and of course, the puff sleeves truly makes it a dress that you want to wear all the time. Plus, who can go past a crisp white for the perfect lightweight summer dress option?

I finished this look with some simple but interesting accessories. I went for classic gold Ray Ban frames and gold oversized statement earrings to add a dramatic touch and to pick up on the gold buttons on the dress. While white Bottega Veneta flats featuring the brand’s signature woven pattern add a textural element while still being high on comfort levels.

What I Wore: Frill Seeker

21st November, 2017

Sleek, simple dresses are a staple in my wardrobe but every so often I just want to embrace an ultra embellished style. This Acler dress, with its frill detail, cold shoulder neckline and asymmetric hem has a feminine silhouette that’s high on impact. With such a bold frock I knew I needed to tone it down with my accessories and opt for simplicity so as not to overwhelm with my overall look. My favourite Alaia heels (which have so been worth the investment from the number of wears I’ve had from them) are just the right understated heel to pair with such a dramatic dress whilst my Bvlgari top handle bag adds a classic touch to the ensemble. For a bit of fun, and to add a little edge to my ensemble I added a pair of mirrored sunglasses for the ideal finishing touch.

What I Wore: Denim Daze

20th December, 2016

 

I love the relaxed look of a summer dress paired with denim. This striped Acler dress looks quite dressy on its own but when teamed with a frayed jacket it gives it a little bit more of a fun, quirky vibe. I can’t get enough of the the above Steele statement jacket with its hand embroidered finish – the floral detail and slogan gives it a point of difference and looks quite fresh when teamed with crisp white. I wanted to add some interesting accessories to elevate the look and couldn’t go past Gucci. The embellished Dionysus canvas bag and gold heels with a pearl detailing perfectly offset the pared back, simplicity of the rest of the outfit.

What I Wore: Walk the Line

28th April, 2016

Myer Acler 1

A matching top and skirt set is often a great way to get numerous wears out of just two pieces. Not only do they work together as separates, as a set, it almost doubles as a dress and both can be worked back with other items in my wardrobe such as a pants or a cami. I love the bold striped print and the the draped asymmetrical cut of this skirt from Acler’s latest range. Matched with statement Proenza Schouler mules this outfit can easily go from day to night by switching up a few key accessories, such as adding a clutch for the evening and adding bold jewellery to dial up the glamour. In saying that I could easily swap to a pair of sneakers or sandals and go for something a little more casual. Strategising your wardrobe purchases to ensure you get multiple uses out of them means your fashion dollar definitely goes further.

What I Wore: New Navy

26th April, 2016

Acler 2 Myer 2

Black has always been a go-to colour of mine but more and more I’m gravitating towards navy as a failsafe neutral. It’s as wearable as black and is a great alternative when I’m not in the mood for a slightly more sombre hue. This Acler dress is a new favourite of mine as it’s as fitting in a meeting as it is for after work drinks or a day of shopping (when teamed with flats). I also like that it has taken the traditional wrap dress and given it a slightly more modern, fashion-forward look. I went for an unexpected touch by pairing it with my white Adidas Superstar sneakers which gives it an interesting high-low mix.
