Preparing For Winter

Cassie, 23, Marketing Assistant


Spotted at Lonsdale Street, Braddon wearing a stylish and comfortable outfit mixing stripes and metallics with a neutral base.


Canberra got a little chilly last week so Cassie wore a little more than usual for Summer, and did a great job at it, creating a minimal yet very fashion forward look as we are about to head into the cooler months.


Zara trench coat, Cos stripe T-shirt, Country Road necklace, Witchery pants and shoes from Seed.

FASHION ARTILLERY

Canberra’s 2015 Miss Universe entrant Simone Luker, pulls out her fashion artillery in this green and black ensemble.


We spotted Simone on her way to a night at the Open Air Cinemas, and she knows the value of layering. Canberra’s recent unpredictable weather called for a gorgeous long-line military green overcoat.


Simone approaches fashion with military precision. She wears green tones to make her green eyes pop, and tights to accentuate her long lean model legs (that we secretly all wish we had!).


The addition of a gun-metal body harness adds just the right amount of metallic flash to this clean line look.


We wish Simone all the best in March for the 2015 Miss Universe heats!

Creative Chic

Emily, 22, Graphic Designer from Gordon.


I spotted Emily in Braddon on her coffee break looking very chic.


She was wearing this black, white and mustard colour block dress from Cue. It came with a slim black belt and she paired it with a pair of black ballet flats from Myer, which was perfect given her super-model height.


Emily's accessories included her Pandora charm bracelets, which show a touch of her 'indie' side, and a burnt orange Fiorelli clutch purse which can be dressed both up or down.


I love spotting creatives and seeing what they've 'thrown' together each day!


Janette Lenk - My Style

I keep getting complements on this Portmans skirt, I find it perfect for work and perfect for play. It has heaps of detailing in the actual style of the skirt and it brings lots of texture, which I love.


It's super easy to match with too. You can go a white, black or grey T-shirt... OR you can spice things up by styling it with coloured singlets and more prints! I am really very lucky to own the Cartier love cuff - this piece goes with everything! My taste in style, shows how much I love, high end designer brands and mixing them with everyday good quality brands.


This will definitely be one of my go-to outfits. It’s awesome because all I have to do to change the feel is add a white T-shirt, a tan wedge shoe and change the clutch to a small side bag for the perfect weekend look. There you have it! One skirt, two looks!

Add Some Quirk to Your Summer Work-robe

Where do you spend most of your time? That's right.. work! We spend approximately eight hours a day, or 40 hours a week, at work! So why not be stylish?


When it comes to truly expressing your personal style, I know lots of ladies who save it only for the weekends! And then they save it (and save it) for that perfect weekend outing or event until the gorgeous dress or blouse they bought has been hanging lonely in the closet for over 6 months....


Sound familiar?


Why not be a little daring and add that 'quirk' to your summer work-robe?


The best place to try new styles - within reason, of course, is the office. If you buy a new pair of shoes for a wedding on the weekend, it makes sense to wear them in during the week at work.


I am loving Co-ords for work this season - and probably for the rest of the year to be honest. They are a modern take on the corporate suit, and are available in shorts, shirts, skorts, shirts, button-downs and blazers in a almost endless range of colours and patterns.


Go on, buy something fun and quirky that you have always wanted to try before! We bet your colleagues will only have lovely things to say about your new found style!


Last week we spilled our 5 Style Resolutions for you to try! Click here to catch up on the article.
