12 Insta-outfit ideas to steal

4th March, 2020

Hello, autumn! The start of a brand new season is a great time to take stock of your wardrobe to see what pieces you need, and also how to refresh your look. The transition to cooler temperatures is the perfect opportunity to embrace textural pieces, layering and also working interesting accessories and punch colours into the mix. Let these looks inspire you…

Love this great mix of tailoring with something soft and feminine. Team a printed skirt with a great jacket or button down shirt and instantly change its look and feel.

Head to toe black doesn’t have to be boring. Incorporate texture such as leather and incorporate finishing interesting finishing touches such as a tie-up detail.

Navy and white is a great go-to colour combination for chic yet comfy lounge wear. Also they’re both pieces that can be incorporated within other looks making them so versatile.

We’re heading into coat season so why not invest in one that is the a vibrant shade to help elevate any winter look? It’s one of my favourite ways to really pull an outfit together and offset any moody colours, which often need a little lift.

I’m a huge fan of gorgeous (faux) fur coats during winter, because not only are they ridiculously warm, they’re also so easy to work back with pieces in my wardrobe. This is one way to do a casual, off duty ensemble while still incorporating the glam element of a gorgeous coat.

This a a great take on man style tailoring. Cinching in the ankles (a micro trend I’ve been seeing at the overseas shows) is such a great way to change up the silhouette of a pair of pants, and worn with a classic blouse and standout accessories, you have yourself a winning autumn/winter look.

Simplicity is always a great way to go when it comes to transseasonal dressing. Pair your favourite black jeans with punchy accessories in vibrant shades and pieces with a sleek, pared back silhouette and you’re guaranteed to have a winning outfit every time.

Neutrals are without a doubt the workhorse of any wardrobe. Not only can they be worked back with myriad pieces but they’re also such a strong look when layered together. Case in point: this blouson sleeved shirt and trousers. So elegant and classic.

If you’ve not got a trench coat in your wardobe, you need to remedy that this season. Not only is a trench a forever staple, it is also one of the most wearable things you can own. Pop it on over any outfit and you will look polished and put together every time.

This outfit is a great lesson in mixing up textures to create a really strong look—and they’re all pieces that most people will have on hand. Denim teamed with textural pieces such as wool and suede will give a richness and depth to an outfit.

You can’t beat the elegance of an all white ensemble, especially when it comes to an off duty look. A chunky sweater and jeans, is the ideal look to cosy up in, while looking chic at the same time.

There are so many elements of this look to love. The colour-on-colour layering, the patterned jacket in a striking hue, the gorgeous heels… it makes for a great look for a night out or special event.


12 Insta-outfit ideas to steal

4th February, 2020

As we head into the official last month of summer, it’s the perfect time to start considering pieces for autumn. And while the weather is definitely still warm enough to keep our summery pieces out for a little longer, it’s a good idea to start thinking of outfits in preparation for when the weather cools down. Keep scrolling for inspo for now, while bookmarking a few looks for later…

Casual dressing takes on an edgy feel with relaxed pieces worked back with a statement piece. A touch of animal print lifts this look while a tee and sandals make for the ideal low-key pairing.

A long sleeved maxi dress is the ideal transseasonal piece making it a great piece to wear now and wear later. Pop on a cardi or jacket when the weather cools down while still staying cool during the day.

Play with volume this season as an easy way to change the look and feel of existing outfits in your wardrobe. A top with a great statement sleeve is one way to rework an ensemble.

If your jeans are feeling a bit tired consider experimenting with the silhouettes that you pair with it. In this instance a top with a power shoulder instantly reinvigorates the look and feel of skinny denim.

Speaking of jeans, don’t forget about how chic a wide legged style can be. What you can pair with it is endless—a cute jumper, a simple tee or button down shirt can all be worn with this cut. Pop on some great accessories and you’re set.

Don’t forget that blazers are a forever wardrobe staple. If however your current collection is in need of a revamp, consider a more cutting edge style like the one above. The two tone colour palette and strong shoulder give it a distinctly modern feel.

Don’t be afraid to layer textures and prints. Leather worn back with tweed and silk make for a truly luxe ensemble. Adding a pop of colour via animal print heels is just perfection.

Jeans and a striped tee should be a go-to in any woman’s wardrobe because of its sheer simplicity and oh-so chic feel. Whether you wear it with a punchy coloured blazer or a classic trench, this is one combination that will never fail you.

Sometimes keeping it simple is really the only way to make an impact. This pared back dress with elegant finishes touches is the kind of style that can be worn in so many different ways. Accessories in rich tones complete the whole look.

Extend the wear of long sleeved dressed into autumn (and even winter) by pairing with boots. In the meantime, enjoy wearing it with beautiful sandals or heels.

If you’re scared of being swamped by a tailored wide legged pant, this is a prime example of how you can still elongate your frame and create a cinched in waist. A knotted shirt is subtly sexy but maintains its classic feel. If you don’t want to bare skin, simply pop on a white singlet underneath.

Tailored pieces in earthy tones look modern and classic at the same time. You could switch the turtleneck for a cami or tee now and go for a long sleeved option later.


12 Insta-outfit ideas to steal

13th January, 2020

There’s nothing like a bit of a style refresh at the start of a new year (and decade) which means there’s plenty of time for outfit inspo aplenty. If you’ve looked into your wardrobe of late and are getting that ‘blah’ feeling then look no further, because once again Instagram is delivering plenty of style ideas and outfits to ensure that your look is on point in 2020.

When you need to liven up an outfit a statement shoe is always a great place to start. Killer shoes are like the full stop to any outfit: the perfect finish.

A slip dress is a summer staple but this goes to show that you can easily dress it up or down (and even take it into the cooler months with you). Adopt one in a striking print and it makes the perfect starting point to any look.

This is a prime example of how less is more when it comes to nailing stylish and polished dressing. An understated colour palette, pared back separates and a relaxed, elegant silhouette make this a blueprint for any time you want an elevated look.

Want to know the shortcut to a chic casual look? Channel your inner Parisian with a combination of stripes and denim. It’s a no-brainer and guaranteed to work every single time.

Sometimes it pays to dial up the drama, particularly if you’re having one of those days where you just need a quick fashion pick-me-up. A punchy red, a patterned shoe and edgy leather ensures you tell the world you mean business.

Denim shorts lovers will love the fact that you can take your summer go-to and instantly dress it up with the right accompanying pieces. Throw on your fave tee, top with a blazer and you’ve got an edgy look that’s still achingly cool.

Colour, colour, colour is always a great style mantra to have at this time of year as it’s the perfect opportunity to embrace bold, bright dressing. A delightful pink that pops worked back with simple pieces will ensure that you’re anything but a wallflower.

Sequins shouldn’t just be relegated for night time outings and party attire. You can definitely rock a sequinned piece during the day — just pair with classic staples such as a button down shirt and polished heels and you’re set.

There’s something quite special about unexpected detailing. Don’t forget that sometimes the best way to make a statement is when you’ve got your back turned! This oversized bow is oh-so sweet and just perfect paired with denim.

This custom suit deserves a moment all to herself

A post shared by Hannah Baxter (@hannahbaxward) on

Suiting is alive and well and showing no signs of waning in popularity. The best thing about it by far is that you can do a suit any way you look. If the traditional silhouette isn’t your thing, look to rework it — in this instance culottes and a cropped jacket take the place of the classic long pant and jacket combination.

Repeat after me: neutrals aren’t boring. In fact, they can make for a striking look without having to do much at all. Wide leg pants, a cropped top and a hat with a metallic accent piece ensure this ensemble holds its own.

There’s something so gorgeous about cornflower blue, and in this instance working the hue in slightly different shades makes for a look that has cohesion but instantly feels elevated. Pair with crisp white and you’ve got yourself an eternally stylish combination.

Summer and all white ensembles are a match made in heaven. A gorgeous white dress is made all the better when paired with on point accessories such as the square toe mules and mini bag. Worked back with a golden glow, it just works beautifully for this time of year.

Want to know a simple way to update a look? Just change your sunglasses. New frames can instantly make anything feel fresh and new, and the bolder it is, the more it can really lift an outfit.

Bookmark a co-ord set for a super easy look for a party, lunch or other festive occasion. These pleated wide leg pants are so classic but worn with a crop top, it feels modern.

Wear a single hue from head to toe for an impactful look. This neutraloatmeal shade is just the thing for the summer, and it’s made even more relaxed with the off the shoulder top.

Metallics and party dressing are a match made in heaven. Whether it’s a dress or a top, adding a touch of extra sparkle will instantly make anything feel perfect for an occasion.

Add a small 90s style shoulder bag to a look, whether it be something casual or a dressy dinner. The good thing is this style, unlike the super mini bags of late can actually fit all your essentials quite easily.

Working a colour palette of tones in the same colour family looks sharp. All these earthy shades work together for a sophisticated outfit that’s made for stealing the show at work then making your way to after work drinks.

A simple t-shirt dress is one of the greatest loungewear options around because it is so unbelievably comfortable. It’s also a blank canvas so you can easily change up its look and feel with the right accessories.

It’s always great when you can see a closet staple being reworked so easily, but it resulting in a look that feels fresh and new. So this summer, grab your fave denim jacket and belt it. It’s such an easy way to instantly turned tired, well worn pieces into something more.

My family and I have escaped the craziness in the lead up to Christmas this week and have had such a fun time in the US. We took the girls to Disneyland for the first time and they had an absolute ball. They dressed up in their favourite princess looks and got to meet their favourite Disney characters, not to mention check out all the rides (the teacup ride was a fave!). We also headed over to Aspen for a spot of skiing. It was great to introduce Grace to the sport for the first time. She was a natural on skis and was zipping around in no time! It was also a particularly beautiful spot to spend my birthday. I always love a destination birthday

This week I also shared my top tips for buying Christmas presents for the little ones in your life. If you’re still on the look out for the ideal gifts for the kids on your Christmas list, then definitely check this post out — hopefully it’ll help you tick off a few more names!

Not long to Christmas now… I hope you’re all enjoying the most wonderful time of the year.

This week had its ups and downs. We farewelled my beloved grandfather who played such an important role in my life growing up, but also in my kids’ lives. We miss him greatly but we’re comforted by all the wonderful memories we have of him.

I had the opportunity to work with some really great brands this week. I hosted a breakfast for Vida Glow, and got behind the Shop Small campaign that aims to promote local small businesses. I popped into gorgeous Sydney florist Poho Flowers, a favourite haunt of mine as they always have the most insanely beautiful range of blooms.

The one thing I was looking forward to this entire week was heading off on holiday. We’re off to LA, with our first stop most definitely Disneyland. The girls have been counting down the days! I’m looking forward to the breatk and having a lot of fun as a family.

I hope the rest of your week is great — the countdown to Christmas is on!

I love having full weeks where I’m able to enjoy doing work related events and also spending time with my family. This week was just like that and whilst it was hectic, I had a great time.

I was invited to host the launch of Witchery’s Summer ’19 collection aboard Seadeck which was a fabulous way to enjoy the Sydney sunshine. It’s always great to be able to catch up with people at events and it was lovely to see model Laura Dundovic and stylish Donny Galella at this particular event.

I support various charities, and this week I attended The Ladies Luncheon 2019 to raise fund for the Royal Hospital for Women Foundation. The event helped raise an incredible $340,000 which will go towards helping the hospital care for premature babies.

But without a doubt the highlight of my week was spending quality time with the girls. It was excitement all round as we visited Santa at Sydney’s QVB. The girls were particularly excited to tell him what they wanted for Christmas. Then we headed off to the spend the night at the Wildlife Retreat at Taronga Zoo where needless to say, Sophia and Grace had an incredible time — so did Luke and I for that matter!

Here’s to another great week ahead.

12 Insta-outfit ideas to steal

11th November, 2019

A little outfit inspo never goes astray especially as we emerge from spring and head into summer and party season. And this month, it’s all about casual looks that have loads of polish and look effortless. From tailored shirts to high waisted trousers and classic basics, it’s about unfussy outfits that still look next-level. Prepare to have your wardrobe sorted for the coming weeks.

A skort is a great hybrid of the key summer staples of a skirt and shorts. You can elevate this casual item by adding a tailored shirt and pairing it with a pair of dressy slides.

The formula for a great look involves keeping things simple but having a few interesting additions to keep your outfit from looking pedestrian. It’s time to give the humble white tee a workout and pair it with your fave summer skirt, a ladylike bag and the ever reliable white sneaker.

Commit this outfit combination to memory: singlet, printed skirt and slides. Work this look in a number of ways by switching up colours and prints but ultimately it’s an outfit that’s guaranteed to work any time.

Tailored pieces which look a little dressy can be extended in smart casual wear by pairing with a simple white tank and sleek accessories. This is one way to work neutrals in a striking way.

Invest in a bright and billowy maxi dress and live in it all summer. This dress style can work for the beach to brunch so you’re guaranteed to get plenty of use out of it.

The simple lines of this dress make it a style chameleon. Worn dressed up with heels or dressed down with sandals, it can easily transition according to the occasion.

Statement tops are the best way to dress up your fave jeans. Choose a fun print and instantly watch your go-to denim come to life.

Don’t be afraid to contrast pieces. This pleated skirt and cropped jacket and tank balances a masculine/feminine aesthetic to great effect and makes traditionally classic pieces look a little more edgy.

Find a pair of high waisted khakis this summer and you’ll live in them non-stop in the coming months. Pop on a blazer and pair it with sneakers and a tank for a look that can easily go from work to play quite seamlessly.

Adopt the bermuda short into your wardrobe this summer to instantly update your look. They’re also great option for those who want a little more coverage when it comes to shorts.

Yes you can wear sequins during the day! This sequinned jacket looks daytime appropriate when paired with shorts and boots but can easily give any evening ensemble some va va va voom.

It’s always a great week when I get to play with some fun looks. This week I was able to attend the most gorgeous event hosted by Dior at Swifts, a beautiful mansion located in Sydney’s Darling Point. We were transported to Marrakech, with the grounds making us feel as if we were in Morocco, a world away from Sydney. It was also the perfect opportunity to wear another Maticevski beauty, this time around a monochrome dress with an architectural feature that truly elevated it from just any event look.

A total departure from that particular look, I opted for a vibrant red Rachel Zoe suit to wear whilst on hosting duties for 7 Racing at the Caulfield Cup. I’m usual a neutrals girl but never pass up the opportunity to go bold and bright. And if there’s one thing I’m loving at the moment it’s striking suiting that’s designed to stand out in a crowd.

Here’s to a stylish week ahead!

After an exciting start to the week with a Roosters grand final win it was all about fashion this week with some beautiful looks from some of my favourite Aussie designers. The stunning Maticevski dress I wore on a recent shoot for Lexus was an feat of sartorial architecture with some truly gorgeous finishes and a whole lot of drama. Whilst on reporting duties for 7 Racing yesterday, I went for a whole lot of glamour with a colourful sequinned Rachel Gilbert dress. And this week I opened up my closet doors and took you through a few of my favourite pieces and some of my key tips for organising a wardrobe.
