The new denim skirt

27th October, 2023

Hemlines have moved a lot in the last few months and while the mini will always be a mainstay, the current silhouette is one that has a bit more fabric! Maxi skirts are definitely having a moment whether it’s in a formal sense at the races or as a floaty resortwear staple it’s all about a more demure silhouette. One way to dip your toe into this trend is via the denim skirt.

A denim skirt has always been one of those staples that can be found in most women’s closets as it’s always such an easy piece to wear. I know I’ve got a few iterations of it and I always get plenty of wear out of each of them. However if you want to give the trusty denim skirt a refresh this summer, consider a denim skirt in a midi or maxi length. It looks a little more polished, and gives a more elegant feel compared to the more casual, playful vibe of a mini. A word of warning to my fellow petite women out there about length: often a midi is a slightly easier silhouette to wear on a smaller/shorter frame rather than a maxi. A maxi can look like a lot of fabric on a petite person so if you’re not sure, it’s best to try on in store rather than just purchasing online. There are some longer silhouettes that can work, but not all so you want to give it a roadtest before committing.

You can dress a denim skirt up or down (see below for examples) so it’s a good one to have on hand if you want to add an on trend piece to your current summer wardrobe. With all that length to contend with, it’s a good idea to keep things quite streamlined at the top. Think a tank or tee and then you can layer pieces on top such as a blazer. Alternatively I’ve also seen it worn in a more dressy way with a button down shirt. As far as footwear goes, a pointy flat slingback is a great match or a chunky sandal or thong a la The Row Ginza shoe. Equally as good is a sneaker like the Adidas Samba or a delicate, minimalist heel like this.

The new denim skirt is one way to take your skirt game in a different direction this season. It’s such an easy way to refresh a look and so easy to mix and match with the rest of your wardrobe. Why not give it a try?

This simple staple is a fashion must-have

3rd March, 2023

White t-shirts, take a bow. We often focus on the shiny, attention-stealing aspects of our wardrobes that we often forget about the unsung heroes that can make most outfits work. One of them being the humble white t-shirt. For me, it’s the kind of basic staple that I rely upon constantly as I can wear it in myriad ways and it works for so many different occasions. I could wear a white tee under a blazer to a meeting, or pop it on over a pair of jeans and wear it to do the school run. It’s that versatile. I think everyone needs a good selection of white tees because…

It works for different dress codes

As I said, a white tee can be worn for most occasions and dress codes. Wear it to a formal setting with a nice pair of slacks and heels, or pop it on over a pair of shorts for a more casual off duty outfit. Either way, there’s really only a handful of instances where a white tee wouldn’t work.

It layers well

The appeal in a white tee is that it’s a neutral that works well layered with a variety of different pieces. I wear them throughout the year, whether it’s during summer with a pair of linen pants, or layered under a jumper or jacket during winter.

It looks polished

My general style is underpinned by the fact I like to look polished wherever I go. Believe it or not the white tee definitely helps me achieve this. Even though a t-shirt would be categorised as a casual staple, I think the crispness of a white tee elevates it from your average t-shirt and makes it look infinitely more put together.

How to choose a white t-shirt

It’s important to remember though that not all white t-shirts are of course created equal. You could spend hundreds of dollars on a t-shirt from a major designer or go the cheap and cheerful route from your local chain store. Either way, the main thing is to focus on the fit, quality and style. I am usually a mid-range person when it comes to tees, where I don’t want to spend a fortune, but I also want something with a bit more durability so I’m not averse to spending a bit more.

I have a few boxes that I like to tick such as the cotton is nice and sturdy (I’m not a huge fan of a flimsy fabric as I find it leans more towards a casual look, so takes away from the versatility a bit more) and that it can be worn tucked in or out and I usually opt for a crew neck neckline. I’m equally on board with both a sleeveless option and one with sleeves as it works with my wardrobe but obviously go with what works back with everything in your closet. I also like to make sure it’s not overly skin tight, but a bit more on the relaxed fit side as I think it works with my shape better.

So, while it doesn’t quite equate to traditional investment dressing, in that you spend a bit more on higher quality building blocks of your wardrobe, I do think white t-shirts fall into that category of pieces that help you build outfits, and are high in wearability. If they’re not already, definitely add them to your shopping list this year.

What I Wore: In Bloom

15th August, 2017

Spring is almost upon us and if there’s one thing I’m definitely planning to add to my wardrobe it’s a gorgeous floral dress. It’s virtually a must with the warmer weather to come and the natural shift to a lighter, breezier look that comes with it. I love this particular dress by Zimmermann because it ticks all the right boxes—the print is subtle yet striking whilst the gorgeous ruffle detail throughout elevates it by giving it an interesting silhouette and the tasseled tie detail adds a bohemian feel. I can see myself wearing this with flats for a casual event and by switching up the footwear to a pair of heels, it can work perfectly for a work event or a special occasion such as a wedding. It’s a versatile piece that I know will definitely have plenty of outings over the next few months.

What I Wore: The New Trench

26th July, 2016

FullSizeRender 6

Trying to find pre- and post-pregnancy pieces can sometimes be tricky which is why I particularly love this TOME sleeveless trench coat which I can wear open now and wear buttoned up as a dress after the baby arrives. It’s quite a statement piece so I usually opt to keep everything else quite pared back.

My leather leggings (similar: ASOS) are my winter go-to and is the ideal piece for layering underneath more relaxed tops during pregnancy but will definitely be able to live on in my wardrobe even after I’ve given birth. As well as this ASOS maternity singlet, which has been an amazing staple. (For more of my tips on the building blocks of a great maternity wardrobe click HERE.)

I’ve topped this look with my Louis Vuitton scarf for extra warmth and paired it with my cut-out Givenchy ankle boots to help ground the look and give it some edge. I love anything that can be multi-purpose and my Jerome Dreyfuss bag works well for day but can easily transition into evening wear with its metallic hardware.

What I Wore: Pretty in pink

26th May, 2016

Kate Waterhouse Stylesnooperdan Pink 1

 There are times when I’m in the mood to for a really feminine look and this dusty pink Bec and Bridge dress was the perfect option to satisfy that whim. The colour was just too pretty to pass up. It’s important to have harmony in an outfit so I particularly liked how the midi length hemline helped to balance the deep V-neck of the dress. I’ve loved being able to experiment with different looks throughout this pregnancy and have discovered a lot of great silhouettes. I particularly love the pairing of the loose fit of the dress and matching sash — it’s a great look for keeping up with my growing bump! I wanted to keep my shoes quite simple so opted for these neutral Gianvito Rossi heels to let the dress do the talking and topped it with my favourite TRIWA sunglasses.
