What I Wore: All lined up

19th September, 2017

Experimenting with layering is one tried and tested way that I end up discovering new looks in my wardrobe. I’ll often start with one statement item (in this case it was the ruffled asymmetric hem skirt by Veronika Maine) and pair it with something unexpected to build up an outfit. It takes a few tries but eventually I’ll stumble open a combination that works. In this instance I wanted to provide a contrast to the feminine vibe of the skirt so I paired it with a pinstripe man-style button down shirt. The silhouette looked a little too voluminous so I added a corset belt to cinch in the shirt and add a little shape and provide some structure to the overall look. Plus I liked the effect of clashing stripes on stripes to add another layer of interest to the ensemble. I wanted some colour contrast to the blue tones of the shirt and skirt so I opted for my beige Loewe Barcelona bag but stuck to my black Alaia heels to allow that one accessory to be the focal point. I loved the total effect of this outfit—it’s like a corporate inspired look that’s been deconstructed and given a little edge.

What I Wore: The cold shoulder dress

12th September, 2017

If you’re looking for a new season wardrobe update that will take you through the next few months then make it of the cold shoulder dress variety. I was after a casual sundress that could be an easy go-to for off duty style and this Veronika Maine dress certainly fit the brief. The striped pattern elevates the dress into something that looks smart yet remains easy and effortless making it ideal for weekends. The appeal of this particular silhouette is that it accentuates one of the most flattering parts of the body—the shoulder—making it a great style for most women. A pair of round 60s style sunglasses makes for a dramatic finishing touch and adds a statement-making feature to the whole ensemble. I finished off the look with metallic star sandals for a fun pop of colour and my neutral Helen Kaminski clutch makes the ideal understated accompaniment for a printed dress with effortless appeal.

What I Wore: Walk the Line

31st August, 2017

For no-fuss dressing I always turn to a great dress. It’s the one thing in my wardrobe which makes it a cinch to pull together an outfit as I don’t have to worry about having to style multiple pieces—I throw it on and I’m pretty much done. It’s one of the reasons this Veronika Maine striped shirt dress is currently one of my go-tos. The bold lines instantly make it look smart whilst the corset style belt gives it a very on-trend, modern feel. I love the fact the dropped waist and ruffled hem give it a relaxed vibe while still being very much work or event appropriate. I wanted to give the outfit a pop of colour so opted for a pair of gold heels which give the whole ensemble a luxe touch whilst a classic navy top handle bag complements the blue belt while still allowing the dress to take centre stage. I always like to add a statement piece to my outfits and in this instance I couldn’t resist pairing it with a pair of fun, cat eye sunglasses.
