The Bodysuit

Aaaah, the bodysuit. How chic and fabulous! Forget about all the horrible pictures you’ve seen of your mom donning her bodysuit in the 80’s (high cut terribleness), our generations version is just amazing! I am obsessed with the way a blouse looks neatly tucked into a pencil skirt, with nothing puffing out over the waistband. So of course, as soon as I came across this bodysuit shirt, I had to have it, to achieve the neatly tucken in awesomeness.

 

And in all honesty, bodysuits don’t need to be restricted to just corporate wear. Why not try it out with high-waisted jeans or shorts on the weekend? So yes, it has a g-string bottom (care for bum floss anyone), which can be off-putting for most woman, but trust me, that’s one of the nicest features, no untidy tell-tale panty lines. I can get use to that!

White on White

For some odd reason, everyone I know seems to be hosting an all white party, so this happens to be the perfect excuse for me to try all white ensembles. And in all honesty, white on white provides one with the perfect canvas to create numerous looks.

My advice:

  1. White can be just as flattering as black if it is worn properly. And that being said, no, white does not instantly make you look like you’ve eaten one too many chocolate puddings.
  2. Do Mix and match different fabrics to add texture to your look. This keeps things interesting and fresh. I’ve mixed denim and cotton today!
  3. I love white clothing mixed with metallics. It helps keep ones look less clinical.
  4. Make sure that your white ensemble isn’t tight. This will draw attention to every body flaw possible.
  5. When wearing white make sure that your under garments are neutral skin tones. White or black can usually be seen through your clothing and looks tacky.

Bohemian Flair

I love fringes. There’s just something about adding a little bohemian, romantic flair to one’s look and of course, I’m doing it in the form of fringes. I have seen it everywhere, from bags to dresses and honestly, I am in love with every piece.

There are so many ways to incorporate this trend into one’s look without looking like you’ve just hopped off a Wild Wild West horse. The key is to keep it simple. There is no need to go bohemian from head-to-toe. Choose one bohemian piece to make a statement. I have incorporated fringed heels into my look. Hope this helps you find some bohemian inspiration!

Cobalt and Pleats

There’s just no escaping it. Pleated skirts are amazing. No matter the length or fabric, they are forgiving, flattering, ultra-feminine and a perfect way to update one’s look.

Let’s just get over the connotations associated with pleats – school uniforms, old school secretary getups, you get the point. Pleated skirts work in all shades so best you get your hands on yours before the best ones sell out!

I had the opportunity of shopping at this amazing store on Saturday. Truth be told, it was more than a treasure hunt for me. It was an experience. I am obsessed with European brands but more so I am obsessed with bargains. So of course, 32 Clothing Company has rapidly become my favourite shopping spot. Their range is modern, chic, oh so fashionable and extremely affordable (to put things into perspective, I left with 2 bags of goodies and it cost me what I would’ve paid for a pair of shoes at Zara).

Jewelled Collars

A few seasons ago, jewelled collars became the “IT” accessory. To date, it’s still one of my favourites (studded, sequined, printed, embellished, I’m obsessed with them all). For the DIY-ers, the nice thing about jewelled collars is that you can make them yourself by cutting out from and old shirt or personalize it directly on the shirt with pearls, sequins or studs for signature style. Jewelled collars also offer a gorgeous alternative to necklaces and are bound to make a statement no matter what ensemble you are rocking.
