On the Street: The Style Set at Milan Fashion Week 2015

Thursday, January 29, 2015

While the designers parade their new collections on the runway at Milan Fashion Week AW 2015/16, the style set are out on the street walking in a show of their own. From winter's cult shade to the era we will all be wearing, I've rounded up my favourite street moments so far from this week's Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in Milan.


Shades of grey: Camel might well be the colour for autumn, but grey is enjoying a moment as the go-to tran-seasonal shade. Those wary of grey palettes should take cue from the style mavens on the street by mixing grey with baby blue or black pieces. The head-to-toe grey look was also spotted earlier this week in Berlin at the Marc Cain show, with Katie Holmes showing her support for the label donned in a grey off-the-runway ensemble.

Oversized Outerwear: This season's outerwear trend is about chic oversized silhouettes that take cue from boy-meets-girl-inspired silhouettes. The key to mastering this trend? Pair your coat with polished pieces. Take it to cool-girl territory with a statement sweatshirt or textured scarf.

'70s Inspired: Both the boho-hippy-esque and the more sleek, tailored side of the 1970s were seen on the streets of Milan. The flared pant will have its moment, while surprisingly, the burgundy/ brick shade is also on-trend- think Jennifer Aniston's crimson Gucci trouser suit at the Critics' Choice Awards last week.

Monochrome: The classic combination of black and white still deserves a place in our wardrobes this season. Like that friend you will never phase out of your life, monochrome is one of the easier trends to master in the complicated world of fashion. If you're looking to add interest to your outfit, try a pop of pink or coral lipstick. 

Teepees & Tealights // Pressed Juices Summer Edition

Wednesday, December 17, 2014

TEEPEES, tealights and a sunset beach yoga session. The ultimate way to welcome S U M M E R. 

Last week, we ventured seaside with the Pressed Juices crew to help unveil their latest summer product: Pressed Pops. Playful, edible and not exactly juice, these healthy icy poles will be calling your name as soon as it begins to heat up this season.  

"A moment of stillness and zen in a beautiful surrounding. Never forget to take a moment for yourself." 

Hail Michael Lo Sordo & The Trench

Thursday, November 20, 2014

ALL hail Michael Lo Sordo. A feminine take on the wardrobe classic, these trenches are everything. The Australian designer who hails from Sydney, Michael Lo Sordo, is known for his fluid tailoring and romantic minimalism. Teaming up with my babes from THE INFLUENCER, Style Snooper Dan & The Graduation we decided to put our own sartorial spin on the washed silk-satin trenches. Why keep it neutral when you can play with pops of colour and sequins?

Trend Report // The Maxi Dress

Monday, November 03, 2014

FLATTERING, demure yet oh-so-sexy, the long-length look requires minimal effort for maximum effect. It's not often that we choose to wear ankle-grazing dresses during the day, but when we do, we're reminded of just how easy it is to look pulled-together without compromising on style; seriously, there's no maxi dress equivalent for men. Team it with sky-high pumps to impress, or work it back with ankle boots and a leather jacket for that model-off-duty vibe.

top and shorts FRENCH CONNECTION, backpack ZARA, watch KARL LAGERFELD

MONOCHROME is that friend you will never phase out of your life. A year-round companion that will have you looking polished from 7am until last drinks after sunset. In the complicated world of fashion, there's just something so reassuring about a clean, simple black-and-white ensemble, and it's safe to say, this French Connection duo will be my summer go-to. The look is modern, cool and assertive- but never in your face. Puncture the classic trend with a pop of pink lipstick and oversized frames. Too easy.
