What I Wore: Print Perfection

26th November, 2019

Printed dresses are always a guaranteed winner in the style stakes especially when it comes in the form of this Isabel Marant number. The motif is a little bit abstract which makes it interesting—I like unexpected details as they can really lift an outfit. If you want a universally flattering fit I highly recommend getting on board with ruching. I love the overall ruched effect of the dress which is quite whimsical and romantic but the structured shoulders help offset this by giving it a touch of dramatic edge. Also take note: any wrap style neckline works well with virtually any figure and shape.

When it comes to prints it’s always worth considering how far you want to push your accessories — I think it’s great to either take a step back and keep it quite simple or go up a notch with pieces that have statement finishes. These Jimmy Choo heels and the bag fall into the latter camp, and whilst they’re standout pieces on their own, I think they still work well with a printed dress. Anything in black will work well with almost any piece you match with it, whilst the crystal embellishments provide a glam touch but aren’t competing for attention with the dress. Also, they’re the kind of accoutrements that are perfect for any party look so take note this festive season!

What I Wore: Mellow Yellow

19th November, 2019

For days spent enjoying the sunshine there’s nothing better than a bright, vibrant yellow shade. There’s something about wearing this most uplifting of colours to really embrace a beautiful spring day, and I couldn’t think of a better way to do it than via this Kate Sylvester dress. I’m a fan of flowy, maxi dresses and I love the style of this particular frock, with its subtle pussy bow and flattering waist tie.

There’s no question that when wearing such a bold colour that it should definitely be the focal point of an ensemble so I opted to keep my accessories simple. I decided on pairing it with one of my current faves—a pair of black minimalist Giuseppe Zanotti heels. It’s always nice to carry a bag with a fun, modern feel and this tortoiseshell Valet Studio bag definitely fit the brief. I love its structured, boxy style and the dainty handle, which gives it a ladylike, feminine vibe but with an edgy touch.

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.

https://www.instagram.com/p/B2MPi_TI5nc/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link

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.

https://www.instagram.com/p/B1WoF5Hh9j-/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link

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.

https://www.instagram.com/p/B2n9m39H9Nu/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link

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.

https://www.instagram.com/p/B4Nr37FlQgb/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link

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.

https://www.instagram.com/p/B2pKdwXobH5/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link

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.

What I Wore: 2019 Derby Day

2nd November, 2019

Derby Day is always one of the chicest race days on the spring racing calendar because of its monochrome colour palette. Working with black and white is always guaranteed to look stylish and it’s one of my favourite events to dress for. This year I centred everything around this knitted Christopher Kane dress. What initially drew me to it was its interesting shape. I loved its fitted style and the tiered hem, and the high neckline with long neck tie feature at the back gives the dress focal points from the front and the back. And I can’t go past glam embellishments such as the oversized crystal buttons.

I wanted to add some statement pieces to this look as I find a black dress is given a little extra depth when paired with accessories that pop. In keeping with the glamorous feel, I worked the look back with a black and diamante custom headpiece by Viktoria Novak. Headbands are such a huge trend right now and such an easy option when you want headwear that’s simple yet stylish. Also I opted for a Jimmy Choo clutch with a similar feel, the statement bow edged with diamantes to help tie the look together. And Giuseppe Zanotti embellished heels were the perfect finishing touch to this look.

A polished look that plays with volumes. A roomy blouse paired with tailored pants with a cinched waist is a flattering silhouette.

A classic trench is perfect for taking you through trans-seasonal weather but take note of the 90s inspired accessories. A small shoulder bag and open-toe sandals are both musts this season.

When it comes to dresses, the long sleeved variety is the ideal thing to take you through changing temperatures. Choose one in a striking print and you’ll have an outfit that pretty much carries itself.

Experiment with different lengths when it comes to denim shorts this season. A pair of mid length shorts makes for a refreshing change to the shorter styles we’ve been seeing season after season.

I was certain the algorithm was ruining my chance at reaching my audience I had already worked so hard to connect with. I was paralyzed and panicked. Slowly, I started to heal my soul- and give myself the self-care I needed. And eventually I had some breakthrough aha moments that lead me to roll out a content strategy that CHANGED THE GAME FOR ME. Would you believe me if I told you these simple shifts helped me grow my account 100k in over one year? Would you believe me if I told you I feel more proud of my art and the network/community I’ve built than ever before? // I WANT THIS FOR YOU TOO!!!!! // That’s why I wrote this FREE workshop for you!

An all white ensemble is a fashion no-brainer—sleek, stylish and goes well against a golden (faux) tan so it’s made for this time of year. Work different necklines such as a one shoulder or off the shoulder style for a fresh look and team it back with pants.

Want a way to revamp a few of your existing blazers? Belt it! You’ll instantly change the silhouette and make it look on trend, whilst giving yourself an ultra flattering waistline.

Double denim for the win. Work similar washes against each other and it brings cohesion to the entire look. A cropped jacket works well against a high waisted pant.

These culottes are a great go-to look for the summer—polished, sleek and with a modern sensibility. This is also a great example of challenging how we wear leather— it can often go beyond just the old faithful option of a leather jacket.

If you’re worried wide leg pants will swamp your frame try them in a cropped length. They look beautiful paired with a blouse and heels, and don’t be afraid to add a bright pop of colour.

Ending fashion week in my favourite @_aje_ mini

A post shared by Izi Simundic (@izisimundic) on

It’s all about playing with proportions this season. If you want to dip your toe into the trend, try a voluminous sleeve.

A crisp white shirt is a forever staple but this season why not accentuate it with a few punchy accessories? A bold headband or daring footwear works beautifully to offset its classic feel.

The cardigan but make it sexy. That’s right this staple has had a bit of a glow up simply by buttoning it up and exposing a little shoulder. Genius.

What I Wore: Pretty in Pink

1st October, 2019

Is there anything more fun than wearing anything in a bubble gum pink? I’m a huge fan of the colour for its playful and feminine vibe so I was immediately sold on this midi dress by Steele. Not only is a midi length frock the right balance of classic and polished, the rest of the design with its rolled cuffs, cinched waist and oversized pockets is right on trend and gives it a slightly more edgy feel.

With a dress such as this I think it’s only fitting to let the colour do the talking. Whilst I wanted accessories that still popped, I didn’t want it to compete too much with the main attraction so I kept to a similar colour palette with a metallic pink Bvlgari bag. A pair of classic Tods loafers added a dressy touch, with the shoes also offering a nice contrast the feminine vibe of my ensemble.

When it comes to playing with colour I think vibrant shades are always a great way to lift an outfit and make a statement. And how can you go wrong when such a fun hue is involved?

What I Wore: A night out with Chaumet

28th September, 2019

I’ve been lucky enough to work with French jewellery house Chaumet during spring racing season (and will be doing so again this year) so I’m familiar with the brand’s timeless and luxe aesthetic. During a recent dinner hosted by brand, I knew I wanted to wear something sophisticated and sleek when it came to my look.

I couldn’t look past a modern take on an LBD in the form of the below Toni Maticevski cocktail dress. The high fluted and ruffled neckline perfectly lifts the simple silhouette of the midi dress striking the right balance between drama and understated elegance. What I particularly loved is the gold lamé cascading ruffle feature which just gave it a theatrical touch.

When it came to my jewellery I opted for a pair of gold drop earrings by Chaumet and the gorgeous pairing of a gold bangle and a diamond bracelet worked back with two simple rings. It’s always such a thrill when I am able to wear beautiful jewellery such as the pieces I wore on the night. It’s such a great way to be able to experience first hand a brand with such an impressive, and notable legacy.

What I Wore: Elevated Casual

24th September, 2019

What I love about fashion at the moment is that there are so many different iterations of casual. Case in point: this white two-piece set by Hansen and Gretel. Whilst visions of an off duty look usually involve denim of some sort, I love the fact that this skirt and top combination is equally as comfortable but is just that little more polished. As an added bonus both can also be worn as separates with other pieces in my wardrobe which extends the wear of this set.

Who else loves the fact that sneakers are the go-to shoe for myriad occasions? Whilst the Chanel pair I’m wearing below are a little dressier than other sneakers I have in my closet, there’s no doubt that they are equally as comfortable. Plus I love the pink shades which soften the overall silhouette of the shoe.

For an on-the-go outfit, I like to incorporate a bag that allows me to go hands-free so I decided on my Prada bag with crossbody strap to pair with this particular look. I finished it off with white Emma Mulholland frames and layered statement necklaces—adding a stylish touch that’s understated and works for a relaxed look.

My week on Instagram

22nd September, 2019

I’m well and truly in the midst of spring racing now which means I’ve got a packed calendar of events over the next few weeks. This weekend I attended the Colgate Optic White Stakes Day at Sydney’s Royal Randwick whose ‘splash of red’ dress code allowed me to embrace a classic look with some vibrant touches including a red hat and a bold lip.

It’s also been the week for some fun fashion! I went from a baby blue floral pants and blouse set one minute to earthy tones whilst shooting for Lexus at the dreamy Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley the next.

Looking forward to another style-filled week!

What I Wore: Into the Blue

17th September, 2019

Long sleeved dresses are a chic staple that I think every woman should have in her wardrobe. The below Colovos dress is a great new addition to my closet and it’s proven itself to be ultra wearable, and so versatile too. I love the cosy feel of a rib dress, which ticks the a major box as I’m all about comfort dressing, but it also looks polished which makes it perfect for wearing to a variety of different occasions. What I do love about it however is the colour blocking pattern. The blue tones work great against each other and really add a striking touch. Whilst the handkerchief hem gives it an interesting silhouette.

I wanted to add some refined accessories to this outfit so opted for pieces that were sleek and simple. The top handle bag by The Daily Edited is big enough to house my essentials but small enough to look ultra polished and I love the fact that its shape is really modern. Whilst simple strappy shoes by Gianvito Rossi help finish off this ensemble, adding an elegant element that’s also right on trend.
