I always look forward to seeing the latest trends every new season so I was excited to attend the recent Myer Spring ’17 show in Sydney. Given it took place at a beautiful property by the water I wanted to wear something light and airy but still appropriate for the cooler temperatures in Sydney so I finally settled on this long-sleeved shirt dress by Anna Quan. A crisp white dress is always guaranteed to make a statement but this frock is taken to the next-level by its balloon sleeves and exaggerated cuffs and the Victorian-style high neck collar which give it a dramatic flair. I love to add a pop of colour whenever I’m wearing white so I opted for my gold Gucci sandals which also added a luxe touch. I wanted to keep the rest of my ensemble quite pared back so I paired it with a mini Loewe bag in a neutral shade and a simple, classic black sunglasses.
As we move into the cooler autumn weather and into winter you’ll soon find that the blazer will be an all important style staple to get you through the next few months. A great black blazer is a constant in my wardrobe and easily pulls together a look. Plus the hue is versatile and timeless so it’s easy to get plenty of wear out of it and also have it for seasons to come.
A great relaxed fit blazer like the one above by Chloe is the ideal cut to take you from work to the weekend. Team it with a structured bag a la the Givenchy Antigona and statement accessories like the above Karen Walker sunglasses and you’ve got yourself an eternally chic look. A single breasted jacket is always a safe bet, however if you’re after something slightly different try a double breasted option or look for interesting finishing touches such as gold buttons or a flared sleeve.
While I’m all about classic, neutral tones sometimes it’s feminine and fun to be able to incorporate pink hues and pretty blush colours into an outfit. If you’re not usually one to wear pink in your wardrobe these style and steal items will soon have you changing your mind.
For a splurge I can’t go past these investment items (clockwise from left):
These Roland Mouret broderie anglaise shorts are a pretty and polished with just the right amount of intricate detailing to make them stand out from the crowd.
The Chloe shoulder bag is the perfect size to fit all the essentials. The soft leather and rounded shape is sleek and polished and can easily be worn day and night which makes it the kind of splurge item that will give you bang for your fashion buck.
Is there anything more classic than a pair of pearl earrings? These gold pearl earrings are versatile to fit both an off-duty and elegant look.
The Rupert Sanderson heels are the perfect statement shoe for everything from a wedding to a cocktail party. The soft hue will mean they will work season after season plus they are handcrafted to last.
Bringing pink into your life doesn’t need to be expensive. These picks will brighten up your life, without the big price tag! (clockwise from left)
I love stylish old school pieces and this pink leather card holder is just that!
Let your accessories do the talking by opting for a pop of pink. The above Rebecca Minkoff satchel is a great way to bring colour into any outfit.
Why hide your lingerie when it’s as pretty as this soft lace bralette by Pleasure State? Super comfortable yet oh-so sexy.
What’s better than a great designer find? When it’s on sale! It would just be rude not to snap up these pastel pink Dolce and Gabbana sunglasses from The Outnet.
I have a collection of Christian Paul watches which work well with myriad outfits. The marble face on this is eye-catching and the pink band gives it a point of difference.
Long lunches in the sun are synonymous with an Australian summer. I love this time of year when I can catch up with my girlfriends and enjoy a cocktail or two over a delicious lunch. Sometimes it’s also the perfect time to get a little dressed up. Here’s an outfit I’m definitely planning to add to my wardrobe this summer…
Stacked rings show no sign of going away anytime soon, this set from Samantha Wills is great for working back with a multitude of different looks, but gold works especially well with a crisp white outfit.
I don’t think there’s anything Zimmermann have released of late that I haven’t immediately wanted to put on my shopping list. A white summer dress is the perfect go-to lunch outfit and the broderie anglaise detail on this particular style just takes it to the next level.
Spring has sprung and pretty pastels are back. Try sherbet hues from head-to-toe or have fun with colours by mixing and matching contrasting soft tones. Here are some of my favourite pieces this season.
You have the green light this season! Whether it is head-to-toe or a statement piece, shades of green dominated the international Resort 2014 collections. Try block colour for a bold statement (as seen by Chloe) or have fun with it and mix various shades of emerald for a unique touch (as seen by Burberry Prorsum).
