Pops of Colour + Prints

This Spring is the perfect time to dress up your casual look with pops of bright colour and bold prints.


I am especially loving everything PINEAPPLE this season. How cool are those printed pineapple pants? Some prints are great for clashing with other prints such as stripes and spots with florals. I think if you are going to wear a really bold or loud print you should definitely pair it with a neutral top or bottom, as our Style Stalker has with the white sweater.


Pops of colour go great with prints - sometimes it's the only matching that will work without looking way too colourful and crazy. Some of you can pull that off which is great, but if you aren't feeling all that daring only pair accessories such as sunglasses, jewellery, a handbag or shoes in pastels for a soft touch and neon for a bit of edge.

The Midi Trend

The Spring and Summer months are going to be jam packed with the Midi Skirt. Pair it with a basic tee or tank tucked in for a demure touch that you can wear to work. On the weekends or in the evening wear a midi top made of lace or leather - showing just enough waist with your skirt for a more daring and fun look.


Bare legs and fuss-free beauty are your warm weather friends for the upcoming season. Spring calls for peek-a-boo undergarments and bleached denim separates creating fun clashes and origami shapes. Pops of bright colour are always big and can be the statement of an outfit or added for just a touch.


When choosing your midi skirt, it's all about the length and fit. Choose the style that best accentuates your figure and, for shorter ladies, you may need to get the hem tailored and pulled up just a tad so it sits mid-calf or just below your knee.


Find your midi in bright colours, patterns, silk, chiffon and more. This skirt is a go-to item to keep you looking chic and fun for the next two seasons.


Dylan Does it Easy

We spotted Dylan cruising around Woden on a bright Winter's day. There was a certain laid-back cool about him that captured our attention, and we couldn't help but stop him for a chat.


Dylan found his shirt and jeans at SABA, proving the Spanish multi-national is perfect at providing basics for any wardrobe. Keeping the continental theme going (though not so good for Canberra fashionistas), his jumper was found on a trip to Paris while the classic pea-coat was purchased in Italy. A lucky boy indeed to be rocking such an international outfit!


Take us shopping with you next time Dylan (or at least let us carry your suitcases!).

DATE NIGHT

How could this adorable and stylish couple not catch my eye?


Melanie and Nathan were all dressed up for 'date night' at the Sydney Comedy festival at the Canberra Theatre Centre last weekend.


Nathan did a fantastic job at rocking the double-breasted-coat-and-scarf look. Paired with skinny jeans and 'worn' loafer-style trainers, he mastered the off-duty, cool Winter look. Guys, take note and don't be afraid of scarves.


Melanie's coat was the standout. Houndstooth will always be a classic - and paired with a black looks very chic. Ballet flats and black skinnies were the perfect combination for this outing. Her hair was tossed up into a sleek pony which gave it an overall 'effortless' feel.


Well done, lovebirds. We loved your style.


Street Style: Emily

We spotted the lovely Emily looking fantastic on the streets of Braddon this morning. She is one of those girls who people are so easily drawn too because she pulls off effortless style so well.


A mostly black outfit just wasn't going to cut it for this creative designer and model. She paired the cute ruffled dress and tights with a custom-made (by her) sequinned and feather crop blazer and then, mixed and matched her patterns, by strapping on a pair of super cute leopard print flats.


Did we mention that the sequin and feather blazer was actually made by her? Such a talented young lady! We also couldn't help but notice how the colours made her blue eyes pop.


Emily finished off the look with a neat top knot and a smile, perfect for this day of clear blue skies and sun out in Canberra.
