LEARN WHAT TO WEAR FOR EVERY OCCASION
When building outfits, it's important to think about where and when you will be wearing these pieces. This will help you determine what will and won’t work for each event in your calendar.
The key to mastering 5-to-9 style is learning how to amp up your office wardrobe, simply adding small tweaks to bring your 9-to-5 fits into the evening. This is where the power top comes into play. Match a statement blouse with tailored pants or a sleek midi skirt as the base of your outfit, using impactful accessories to transition the look beyond your desk. Think a punchy pair of heels or glimmering golden jewellery.
The number one rule of wedding guest dressing is to avoid wearing white at all costs. You also don’t want to be seen to outshine the bride. Take these points into consideration and go for more classic prints and patterns. Elegant florals are an obvious choice for spring and summer weddings
NYE AND DAYS WORTH CELEBRATING
Now is the time to let your most decadent style self shine. Pull out all the stops with bold, bright and brilliant pieces. High-octane hues, sparkling details, graphic prints and intriguing textures will be sure to set you apart from the crowd.
PICNICS AND GARDEN PARTIES
Classic checks, fun florals and pastel colours make the perfect match for days spent outdoors. Whether you’re having a beachside picnic or a long lunch in the garden, lean into the mood of the season and choose your outfit accordingly. Rich green hues and pops of pink are are great way to dress in line with the theme of late spring and early summer days.
From mornings at the market to Sunday brunch with friends, weekends are the perfect time to road test some of your more outgoing ensembles. If your plans are a little bit more lowkey, neutral colours, classic prints and easygoing accessories will help you nail the laid-back feeling of days spent relaxing after a busy week.
Learning how to have fun with prints and patterns is the best way to build confidence in your wardrobe. If you’re nervous, start slow. Introduce a bright top or statement pants to build your outfit around to begin with. It won’t be long before you’re donning dramatic dresses in bold colours and accessories that promise to level up your look.
