While we may all be spending a lot more time at home these days, I’m still trying to inject a little fun into my wardrobe everyday in whatever way I can. Fashion’s always been such a huge part of my life and wearing a beautiful piece (even if I’m just going to staying inside) is one thing that helps me maintain a little normality in my routine.
I had this coat bookmarked for many an outing throughout autumn/winter, from meetings to events to the races and while those events may be put on hold right now, I’m still trying to work it into my wardrobe as best as I can. This checked coat by Viktoria and Woods is such a great statement piece to pop on top of a casual look to add a dressy element. The pattern, the cut and the contrasting details give it an elevated feel.
My collection of jeans has definitely been getting much more of a workout than usual. It has been interesting trying to find pieces in my closet that are comfortable enough for a day spent at home but also maintains a polished feel. This is where a crisp white shirt is ideal. It strikes just the right vibe but isn’t overly fussy.
The combination of a crisp white shirt and jeans is a blank canvas for so many different types of accessories. White slingback heels and a classic black bag make this look appropriate for myriad occasions. It’s definitely one outfit I’m bookmarking for future use.
An all white ensemble is hard to beat which is why it’s always one of my go-to outfits. It’s always looks sophisticated and fresh and is perfect for those times when you want an impactful look. Recently, I checked out the new Viktoria and Woods store in Sydney’s Mosman and uncovered a new ensemble that I love. I’m always endlessly pleased when a fave of brand of mine opens locally and with such a great collection in store right now, I found it hard not to compile a lengthy wish list.
The below look ticks the versatility box, which is key for me whenever I’m considering an outfit. Separately I think the blouse, pants and corset are able to be worked back with other pieces in my closet and can easily be dressed up or down. Even the corset, which at first may seem limited to only certain occasions, can be worn with a simple tee for a look that’s casual yet elevated. Worn together I think it’s sophisticated and modern and maintains a classic sensibility.
To really allow the entire look to pop, I went for all white accessories too. Crisp white cat eye frames and white mules were the bright and fresh accoutrements needed to finish off this look.
I love it when my favourite brands move into my local neighbourhood so i was so excited to check out the new Viktoria and Woods boutique in Mosman. The space is stunning and such a good place to spend time in for a spot of shopping—especially for popping things on your Christmas wish list!
I was so excited to check out what’s in store and immediately fell in love with this pink snakeskin co-ord set. The soft pink shade is just perfect for this time of year, while the print gives it a bit of edge and makes it ideal for events. The short sleeved wrap jacket with tie, worked back with the wide leg pants evoke an effortless vibe that is just made for summer, and worn together achieves a really striking effect.
This look was all about keeping it simple so I opted for the pared back accessories. I gravitated towards white accoutrements to pick up the white in the snakeskin print and gave the look some cohesion. The slip on mules and minimalist jewellery that included a necklace and drop earrings were the just the right finishing touches — understated yet able to stand out.
