Pretty in Pastels

Need a look that will turn heads while keeping yours cool? Nothing brings out your feminine side like stepping out in pastels.

This summer, don’t be shy of softening your wardrobe and looking towards this functional palette for the warmer weather.

Perfect for a casual barbecue or night out to dinner, bring together two or three light colours with a similar tone, or stick to one hue in a number of shades (with a simple pop of colour) to execute this trend. For evenings, add a hit of metallic through your accessories for contrast and glamour.

Light and breezy fabrics are essential, allowing for a functional fit that will keep you cool and comfortable no matter how hot things get this summer.

Eeenie, Meenie, Minie... MINI

The warm weather is here and the festive season has officially kicked off, so what better time than to rock out your mini-skirts?

This season is all about the chic mini. You can dress them up or down depending on the styles of material they have been made from.

Mini By Day

Pair a floral mini with a cute cropped tee and accessorise with some strappy sandals, a pair of bright sunnies and a tote for a day out and about.

Mini By Night

Black or embellished is perfect for a night out. Pair with a singlet or blouse tucked in for extra shape, and wedges or strappy statement heels. Opt for a light pleather style that breathes to allow you to dance the night away!

Choosing the cut of your mini is also really important. If you are short, opt for a straight A-lined skirt that will run along side your legs giving an elongated look. Cut-outs will also work well, and give your outfit a bit of oompf. If you are tall, you need a little bit more material. Try wearing the fun, flowing skater-style designs.

Friday Fresh

We spotted Maty Saks heading into the city one friday for afterwork-drinks... and looking fresh!

Maty is a public servant by day, a part-time personal trainer for Detox Fitness and a DJ by night. It’s amazing he even has time to put together such a rocking look!

His style echoes the old school hip-hop and RnB tracks he is known for mixing. Maty’s carefully curated outfit is a modern take on the style of fresh Prince of Bel Air.

The vest worn is a jacket that Maty has had altered to suit his individual style.

Outfit breakdown:

Gucci sunglasses

Nike Cap

G-Shock watch

Chicago Bulls jersey

David and Goliath altered vest

Green with Envy

What a gorgeous jumpsuit! Philippa's chic and stylish outfit caught my eye from a mile away.

Simple, yet worn with statement! We love that it shakes style up a bit and Phillipa has accessorised the outfit perfectly.

We have seen lots of chartreuse and lime green come through the stores lately. Jumpsuits are great for going out in summer, but just be careful with how the fabric falls at your waist. Belts are an easy way to stop extra material from bunching up around unwanted areas, and a chic accessory too!

Phillipa wears:

Jumpsuit from Sheike

Silver belt from Kookai

Shoes from Wittner


Karen Coe was a stand out at the Marque Melbourne Cup event at Albert Hall last week.

We thought she had the perfect complete outfit and it was no surprise that she was the runner up at the Marque 'Fashions on the field' competition.

Karen brought out and played up the colours in her dress by complementing them with her purple glove (very classic) and her gorgeous purple and green head piece.

Her dress was from Veronica Maine and the head piece she hand-made herself! Bright and colourful to suit the spring weather.
