Fashion Friday: Neon x Neutrals

IMG_1963 (2)

Happy Friday! If it’s been a long week and if you’re lacking motivation, you can brighten up any outfit by combining everyday neutrals with just a pop of colour.

Neon accessories are a great way to liven up a dull outfit, just make sure you use neon in moderation. You don’t want to walk around town glowing like a stop light. Then again, maybe you do! 😉

Sexy Saturday: Don’t Wait For Spring

It’s funny how fashion is always a season ahead, forcing you to plan your outfits way ahead of time. It’s -20 degrees celsius and we’re supposed to be thinking about sundresses…. It can be a little frustrating.

Well, I’m not the type of person to buy something and let it sit in my closet for 3-4 months before I can wear it, so I’m telling you now, “Don’t wait for spring!”

If you see an awesome skirt like this one from Cameo, choose items that accentuate the colour and style and most importantly, pick items to help you stay comfortable and warm!

Model: Courtney Kerr / Blazer: Mango / Aviators: Ray-Ban

This model chose a gorgeous Mango blazer and some sexy Dolce Vita boots to keep her warm and stylish. A blend of professional and street style make this outfit perfect for going to the office, a night out or just hanging out on a Saturday!

Skirt: Cameo / Watch: Michele / Rings: Gorjana / Boots: Dolce Vita

Lastly, she chose to accessorize her outfit with an absolutely stunning watch from Michele and some really cool rings from Gorjana.

So don’t let the weather get you down. Take control of your wardrobe choices and let your creativity shine! :)

In order to liven it up, this fashionista has chosen exotic print Prada glasses, Even & Odd suede ankle boots and a beautiful red Rebecca Minkoff bag. Isn’t it amazing how sexy a turtleneck can be?

Fall-Ready-24-433x650

Whether you’re heading to a meeting, about to give a presentation or need to make an astounding first impression – we’ve got the outfit for you. This model is wearing Stuart Weitzman knee high boots. Soft, supple suede is shaped into a show-stopping over-the-knee boot with a low stacked heel and a dare-anything vibe. Her Calvin Klein jacket with an oversized collar and dropped-shoulder styling enhance the cozy cocoon silhouette of a minimally detailed coat washed in a pale pink hue.

Accessorize with subtle off-setting colours and prepare to dazzle your way through the end of the work week!

Throwback Thursday: How To Wear a Scrunchie That Won’t Make You Feel Stuck In The 90s

Last year Marc Jacobs, Rita Ora, Missoni and Rag & Bone worked luxe versions of the scrunchie into their FW13 Collections. In terms of style and practicality, scrunchies are actually the win-win of all hairstyle accessories! They’re big, bright, soft and transform literally any hairdo.

So what’s the downside?

Well, trying to wear a scrunchie in a way that doesn’t make you look like you’re in a 1990’s workout video can prove to be a difficult task. Don’t worry! We’ve compiled three foolproof ways to rock your scrunchie to keep it modern and practical.

1. Sock Bun

For those of you with longer hair, throw it up into a sock bun and slide a bright coloured scrunchie over top for a ballerina-style look!

2. Braid

Use a brightly coloured scrunchie to cap off the end of a braid. Make sure to tie it tight, otherwise your Katniss Everdeen look may turn into a mad scientist look real fast.

3. The Beehive

A scruffy bun is a great look. It’s easy to throw up and it can show off your new highlights and flawless neckline. Wrap a scrunchie around it twice and try not to whip your head around too fast.

Temporary Tattoos: A Glimmering Trend That’s Here To Stay

With growing bohemian-style influences from companies like Child of Wild and Free People, it appears that the rustic and glimmering look of temporary tattoos is a fashion trend that’s here to stay. Inspired by the creativity that emerged from music festivals such as, Burning Man and Coachella, the latest SS15 Collections from Milan and Paris have featured painted gold lip rings and metallic foil – emulating lavish jewellery.

There’s something truly beautiful (and cost effective) behind creating your own gold and silver designs. Instead of incorporating these stencils with their wardrobes, people are literally making them part of their body.

So be as conservative or creative as you’d like and long live the endless summer!
