Our Favourite Tran Seasonal Piece

The sleeveless cape is going to be / will be a staple as part of the trans seasonal change. It is a go to piece for many right now, including us and we will continue to see them everywhere heading into spring. We love how this one item can completely change the look of an outfit. The sleeveless coat is chic, bold, eye catching and ever so versatile. With so many varieties in style and colour there is bound to be one that suits us all…or you could purchase a couple in different colours – to meet all your needs.

  • Wear the coat over a long sleeve, with jeans and heels for a real chic look.
  • Wear it over a white crisp shirt for the workplace
  • Add a waist cinching belt, to add or show off some curves
  • In summer wear it over a singlet top to show off your killer looking arms

Ideas are endless for this – our favourite trans seasonal piece…..take a look below for more inspro.

Winter Layering Made Easy

We all know that layering is the key to warmth in the colder months. By adding leggings / stockings, vest, jacket, beanie, hat or scarf we can keep the chilly winds at bay.

I love the look of a shirt with a knit over the top or even a long lined waterfall cardigan with a vest. Who doesn’t love the look of warmth! Coming into the coldest part of the year – we need to make sure our wardrobe has the versatility and warmth we require. There is some key points to remember when layering in the colder months, you are concerned that you’re going to look huge from all the layering (I guarantee that you won’t – its a misconception, by using thin wool knits you will look great)

Our top tips are:

  1. Start with a basic thin lightweight top or shirt (striped long sleeve or chambray shirt are our favs)
  2. The next layer is to be a lightweight soft knit cardigan or sweater.
  3. Then add your  jacket or vest (puffer or faux fur)
  4. A scarf and a hat – will work well, maybe even some gloves if its really cold.
  5. Then add a hero accessories to tie it all in.

Would love to know your secrets to staying warm this winter. xx

Loving Ankle Boots

We are so loving the ankle boot right now (actually since a few seasons ago). They are easy to wear, keep your feet warm and look great. They can and do have a bad rap for making feet look chunky,as they can cut off your legs right above the ankles, if not worn well…….but we have some tips to make sure that isn’t the case.

If your wearing ankle boots with skinny jeans, you should try rolling the jeans under or even half cuffing (a slight roll) them up, it  looks effortless but very on trend. Showing a touch of skin breaks the line of the boot,  flattering your silhouette. Also the cut of the boot should come just above the ankle, and be significantly wider than your legs to avoid them looking “stumpy”.

When you want to lengthen the look of your legs – match the colour of your pants to your boot colour. Nothing beats a bit of black on black. Dresses and ankle boots work too – using the same tip as above in the cooler months, try wearing some black opaque tights with your black booties. Take a look at some inspro below – all of these looks are easy to pull off, you just need to give them ago.
