This week, I’ve been flying the flag for a range of Aussie brands. There’s something about how we do fashion in this country that always brings about fresh designs and an aesthetic that speaks to how many of us like to dress — easy and effortless. I’ve also been able to do a few looks that have run the spectrum from preppy and chic to evening ready which I always really like as I’m able to play dress up in so many different ways. Here’s what I wore this week.
You often see houndstooth in monochrome so I loved that this dress by Aussie brand Leo Lin went in the opposite direction. The vibrant green really gives this preppy style a little extra personality. Whenever I embrace patterns I tend to keep everything pared back so a pair of black and white Dior slingbacks and simple headband seemed the right finishing touches.
I’ve always been a fan of beige/camel tones and find it works really well when layered together. It was a cool day in Sydney so these trousers layered with a sweater and coat was the perfect look for the day ahead. There’s also something quite pulled together about layering different hues and is one of my fave ways to elevate existing pieces in my wardrobe.
Ready for a night out in this elegant long sleeve Gul. Hurgel dress. I love playing with different textures and find you can’t go wrong with black velvet — it’s always a great go-to for evening wear. To complement the diamante accents on the dress I went for a silver slouchy Jimmy Choo evening bag, and a pair of simple strappy slides by Giuseppe Zanotti.
Who else loves shirt dresses? I can’t resist them as they’re such an easy and effortless way to pull together a look. This piece is by Aussie brand, Onte and the understated silhouette, punctuated by gold buttons really ticks all the boxes. It’s an easy piece to throw on for a casual day or if I’ve got meetings or I’m doing the school run, plus it’s comfy too. Also a big fan of the neutral colour — you can’t ever go wrong with a hue that can be worn in myriad ways.
