There are times when an outfit of mine comes together based on a particular print or colour. In this instance the graduating pink tones of my Rebecca de Ravenel drop earrings had me wanting to wear the hue from top to toe. I find that playing with colour is often a great way to create a look that’s vibrant and impactful. Taking inspiration from the ombre effect of my earrings I wanted to incorporate light to dark shades in my ensemble, starting with the pastel pink shade of this Steele dress which provided the perfect canvas to build the rest of my look. I opted for blush toned bag and shoes to add a slightly deeper colour whilst my candy pink embellished Gucci sunglasses added a a fun touch while still keeping within the palette I was going for. The overall gradient effect is a playful way to wear this ultra feminine tone and is a styling trick that can be done with so many other colours, so it’s able to be carried out across my entire wardrobe. But there’s just something about pink that I’m really loving at the moment…
The first show of Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Australia was Dion Lee, and as a huge fan of his designs I wanted to show my support so opted for a sweater and pleated skirt from his label. I went for a full navy look but worked in different textures in order to break the outfit up and avoid the colour looking too overwhelming. Also the weather was quite cool so it was great to be in a knit to keep warm as the show took place outdoors on the Opera House forecourt. I wanted to wear statement jewellery to add some punch to my outfit so opted for rose gold earrings and a smattering of cocktail rings. My Bulgari bag was also in navy so was in keeping with the colour palette of the day, whilst the Mimco bag/wallet added a touch of colour. And of course one of my favourite Alaïa heels had to cap off the look and my round frame Miu Miu sunglasses added a touch of fun to my ensemble. Bring on the rest of the week!
What I love most about this By Johnny dress is the cute bell sleeve detail and the grey marle fabric which gives it an interesting finishing touch. The neoprene fabric is also ideal for accommodating a bump but I love the fact it’s still quite structured and makes for a great silhouette. To give the look a playful touch I teamed it with my circle glasses from Miu Miuand dressed up the look with my favourite nudeGianvito Rossi heels. I kept the rest of my accessories quite simple with myChristian Paulwatch and a sweet candy pink clutch byThe Daily Edited.
