When it comes to my wardrobe I generally tend to favour lots of neutrals and muted tones. I gravitate towards shades that can easily be worked back with the rest of my wardrobe seamlessly but every so often I’ll want to wear a vibrant hue. This navy jumpsuit has a classic feel from the silhouette to the colour, but for a day look it was calling out to be paired with a bold pop of colour to give it a more casual feel. A simple tote is one of my go-tos when I’m out and about and in a bright red it gave my ensemble a fun touch. When working with such a intense colour, I wanted to let it take centre stage so I chose simple accessories. My favourite white Gucci sneakers and black sunglasses seemed the right fit whilst the addition of a pair of drop earrings help to lift the entire ensemble. When it comes to days where I’m out and about, I always like to make a point to turn a casual off duty outfit into something with a little polish without sacrificing comfort and in this instance, a little colour really went a long way.
Now that it’s officially the time of year in Australia where everyone’s in the mood to go out and enjoy a few cocktails and make the most of balmy summer nights I’m once again drawn to this Rebecca Vallance jumpsuit. I took it with me to Paris during my last holiday and loved that it felt so right for evenings out, making the most of the gorgeous weather. I’d usually associate gold lamé with more of a party look but the style of the jumpsuit, with its culotte style leg, square neckline and sweet waist tie keep it looking polished without losing any of its glam factor. The colour is so gorgeous that to continue the gilded theme I opted for my gold Gucci heels and favourite Eddie Borgo choker. To punctuate the head-to-toe metallic I went with a little black Dior bag with chain strap to carry all my essentials and leave my hands-free should I wish to enjoy a drink or two!
There’s something about a black jumpsuit that makes a strong sartorial statement—it’s the type of piece that screams sleek and modern. Bec & Bridge’s take on the style with its strapless neckline and cropped wide leg pants has a contemporary, polished silhouette but is given a slightly more relaxed feel in the ultra on trend fabric that is linen. It’s the kind of piece that I can see becoming a versatile go-to in my wardrobe during the warmer months. I can’t resist teaming black with gold so I opted for my favourite gilded Gucci heels and and choker for a metallic touch. I kept my bag quite neutral in shade to really allow the gold accessories to shine but wanted to have a bit of fun with my choice of sunglasses so I settled on a pair of clear, round framed sunglasses by Chloe. I found they added some attitude to the look without being over the top. When the weather gets warmer I can guarantee this particular Bec & Bridge jumpsuit will be on high rotation.
When it comes to easy outfit options I can’t go past a simple dress. This Maison du Maillotdress with its distinctive print and billowy sleeves can easily work with a pair of sneakers or sandals for day and a pair of heels by night. With such a busy pattern, I opted to keep my accessories to a minimum to allow the dress to take centre stage. On busy days, having a go-to outfit that I can easily throw on to get out the door fast is my little sartorial shortcut.
