Embrace the ultimate high-low mix and team a blazer with a vintage tee for a look that taps into the season’s statement t-shirt trend. Pair this combination with a pair of black pants and heels and you’ve got yourself a winning look.

When it comes to accessories try out all things studded for a look that’s edgy and of the moment.

In this tricky trans-seasonal period make like blogger Brooke Testoni and layer a dress with a turtleneck for a look that’s spot on for battling unpredictable weather. The bonus? Your summer dresses don’t have to go into hibernation just yet.

The sock boot is a key shoe to add to your wardrobe this season. It’s slimline silhouette is the ideal pairing with a voluminous pant for a look that’s very of the moment.

Be adventurous and mix and match different textures. Plisse pants and a lurex top are a bold pairing – unlikely but one that looks fresh and will make your outfit stand out in the crowd.

If you’re going to buy a pair of jeans this season make it a pair with a raw hem. It’s the ideal way to update your denim wardrobe as this particular finish will be everywhere.

A pair of knee high boots worn back with a slip dress make this look not only weather-appropriate but so sexy and stylish. Elevate this ensemble even more by topping it with a gorgeous faux fur coat.

Leather is always a key wardrobe staple during the cooler months but why not venture further afield than trusty black and embrace a touch of colour. A burgundy leather jacket looks sleek and sophisticated.

Knots, draping, and origami style folds will be making its way in-store this season and is just the finishing detail to take a standard shirt or dress and elevate it into something more.

Did you live in cropped flared jeans during summer? You don’t have to bid them adieu quite just yet by swapping your open toed sandals for ankle boots instead.

For the ultimate laid back casual weekend look pair your trusty denim with a trench coat. It’s an easy go-to outfit for everything from brunch to a day running errands.

Tap into your ultra feminine side and embrace shades of lolly pink. It’s surprisingly easy to wear too – whether its a blouse or a dress and even wide legged pants, this hue is ultra flattering.


10 stylish Aussie women to inspire your look on Australia Day

26th January, 2017

What better day than Australia Day to shine a spotlight on some of our own homegrown fashion talent. If there’s one thing we do well Down Under it’s style that’s relaxed and understated yet still distinctly fashion forward. These women have managed to cultivate an aesthetic that works perfectly to complement our laidback lifestyle but still inject it with their own trendsetting spin. The next time you’re stuck for a little fashion inspiration look no further than home soil…

Nicole Warne

Gary Pepper Girl’s founder Nicole Warne is the very definition of stylish. Appearing in campaigns for some of the world’s biggest fashion brands, she’s always immaculately put together and is the epitome of feminine styling with a modern spin.

Sara Donaldson

I’ve known Sara for awhile and her style mantra of wearing a colour palette of only black, white and grey has always been her signature look and why not when it works this well? She’s a great example of knowing what works for you and really owning it.

Amanda Shadforth

A talented photographer and one of our biggest fashion bloggers, Oracle Fox’s Amanda Shadforth manages to work man-style tailoring with just the right injection of feminine touches. Her looks always have a distinct contemporary vibe which she manages to mix beautifully with the simple aesthetic of Australian style.

Lara Worthington

The quintessential beach girl, Lara Worthington’s style has certainly evolved from her bikini model days to a wardrobe that’s highlighted by designers such as Dior, Gucci and Celine. Her looks are always fashion forward and have a distinctly edgy vibe in a nod to the aesthetic of New York, where Worthington now resides.

Jesinta Franklin

The newly married Jesinta Franklin is the perfect canvas for showing off some seriously envy-inducing looks (being a David Jones ambassador certainly helps!). Her looks are always quite demure, often wearing dresses or skirts that go to the knee or are midi length however she always flashes just a glimmer of skin to inject a touch of sexiness. She’s definitely one to watch.

Jessica Stein

The jetsetting blogger behind the website Tuula Vintage is the perfect go-to muse when it comes to women who love looks that are relaxed and echo the kind of covetable global lifestyle that Stein has. She favours floaty fabrics, denim and feminine prints with all her outfits having a laidback elegance.

Nadia Fairfax

I’ve been friends with Nadia for ages and she has always had a great sense of style. Her looks are always sleek but have a sense of playfulness to it whether it’s a great pair of statement earrings or a bold, unexpected print or colour.

Christine Centenera

She’s Vogue Australia’s fashion director and no wonder – she has a look that’s distinctly her own and is always one to set the trends. Her looks are always peppered with designer pieces and the one constant is her ability to pull off a myriad of tricky trends – everything from stirrup leggings as she wore at Fashion Week this year to a fluffy coat – and make it look oh-so stylish.

The newly appointed editor-in-chief of US InStyle has a quirky sense of style that is often punctuated by the latest designer pieces. She favours bright colours, bold prints and logo t-shirts but manages to work it together for a distinctly unique aesthetic.

Who I follow on Instagram

22nd June, 2015

Lena Perminova

Like most people I’m always on Instagram. It’s a great source of fashion inspiration and I love being able to check out what my fave fashion icons are up to. I follow quite a few people but these people are at the top of my list:



Miroslava Duma is one of my style icons. I love seeing what she’s up to whether she’s travelling the world or attending an amazing party but I also love seeing what she’s wearing because it inspires me. She always has the most beautiful outfits and she’s definitely one of my favourites.


Lena is a Russian fashionista who’s also a mum of three. She’s always going to amazing parties and runway shows and she’s always dressed to perfection. She’s a great source of outfit inspiration and I love seeing the exciting things she gets up to.



I love following the girls from Fashion Bloggers. Nadia has got a really fun personality and I love how it shines through on Instagram. Not only is she always really well dressed but she’s always at the best bars and restaurants and latest parties and her Instagram is a great way to get an insight into her world.



Zanita’s always dressed in a really unique way and I love her original take on fashion. Often I’ll see something on the runway but wouldn’t think of putting it together the way Zanita does. She’s got a really great eye. She’s also a really amazing photographer and I really just love seeing what she does with her photographs and she really excels at capturing the moment and creating a beautiful image.



Sara Donaldson from Harper and Harley is a big source of fashion inspiration. I really love the way she works her wardrobe with a minimalist colour palette of black, grey and white. She always gives some great tips and tricks on how to dress.



Mandy from Oracle Fox is the ultimate in really beautiful style and travel. I feel I’m on an endless journey with Oracle Fox and just travelling across the world to Paris and to amazing beautiful beachside resorts. She’s also an amazing photographer and I love seeing the images she captures.
