Trend Tip: Monochrome

Monochrome is a timeless trend – black and white look amazing together and are an instantly classy look. No matter what the season, you can rock the monochrome look or brighten it up with a pop of colour. Here are a few of my favourite monochrome pieces right now…

The skater skirt is still a firm favourite of mine – I love the way that it kicks out at the bottom, and think that this variegated stripe looks super cool! View Post

All Wrapped Up: Top 10 Scarves

My wardrobe consists primarily of neutrals – navy blues, greys and blacks are pretty much my staples.  I then like to liven things up with accessories – either coloured or textured – that make me look and feel fantastic.

nzgirl asked me to compile a list of my top ten scarves, and I thought that even though we are entering the cooler months I would include some that can be worn all year round, because scarves and wraps are wonderful for all seasons!

This is, hands down, my number one must have scarf.  Don’t you think it looks super snuggly and warm? It comes in a variety of colours, including burgundy (as seen here), so everyone should be able to find a colour to suit them. View Post

Trend Tip: Oxblood

Introducing the hottest new colour trend for Autumn/Winter 2013 (and where to find it)…

Oxblood: the "in" shade for AW13

Oxblood: the “in” shade for AW13

Oxblood is in, so say the fashion masses. It’s a deep red wine colour that is reminiscent of drinking mulled wine as the air grows crisper and the leaves change colour (my favourite time of year), making it perfect for Autumn/Winter. It’s deep and luxurious, with a lush richness that makes it super striking.

I’m loving oxblood knits – keep your eye out for warm snuggly sweaters or luxurious infinity loop scarves (something definitely on my wish list!), or add in a little colour with an oxblood lipstick or nail polish. Oxblood is perfectly paired with black, charcoal, white and other neutrals – a jump away from the garish neons we have been seeing all summer.

Here are a few of my fave finds (and where you can get them) – what do you think? View Post
