Leather, Lips and Louis Vuitton

By Jemma Mrdak


The three 'L's': Leather, Lips and Louis Vuitton. Three 'L's' that when styled correctly can look perfect together. This week's Style Stalker, Bianca, seriously knows how to combine the three to perfection. Wearing a classic leather shift dress is a bold and brave move in this city, but she's pulled it off with style. The timeless and ever-so-classic Louis Vuitton bag adds a touch of designer glam to the outfit, and the nude lip allows the outfit to stand out for itself.


Bianca's weekday outfit is ideal for those that want to feel comfortable, but look super-stylish at the same time. A leather shift dress is the ultimate wardrobe staple this Autumn - it's trans-seasonal and can always be dressed up (or down!) depending on your day ahead.

Margie in Manuka

By Jemma Mrdak


At OutInCanberra we think its safe to say that there are some seriously stylish people here in our city. This summer, Canberrans haven’t been afraid to let loose and experiment with outfits; and this weeks style stalker is no exception!


We found Margie, shopping up a storm in the stylish suburb of Manuka, wearing head-to-toe 'designer' and looking simply gorgeous. What attracted us to her was her green printed skirt which she had paired perfectly with her brown, animal print bag, a white shirt and nude shoes. The combination of colours and prints is just stunning!


Margie claims that this season she’s been addicted to wearing skirts, and she especially loves this green one by Banana Republic - it's vibrant, stands out and goes perfectly with her structured, white blouse. The clashing and combination of prints and patterns is definitely a trend we have seen this season, and Margie has successfully pulled it off!


Style Stalker: Erin

Erin is a woman with a keen eye for style and a genuine interest in the fashion world, always in the know about the latest designer goss and news - especially among the Australian labels.


We spotted her judging the Myer Face of Canberra Racing competition at Siren Bar & Restaurant last week, and how could we have missed her? The hot pink Camilla & Marc dress she was wearing caught our eye right away. We recognised her outfit from the Resort 2014 collection, so it’s pretty much hot off the runway!


Erin accessorised this statement dress with a sass and bide cuff and her gorgeous diamond Tennis Bracelet. She went with a pair of nude suede peep-toe shoes and pinned her golden locks into a low braid up-do which gave the outfit the minimalistic finishing touches required.


Erin is the owner of Mudd The Spa and Evo Health Club - both here in Canberra, clearly a lady who likes to take care of herself!

A Lesson in Style

By Jemma Mrdak


This week's Style Stalker just goes to show that any woman of any age can dress well and be fashionable. Carol evidently knows just how to dress for her age, but also isn't afraid to wear colours and prints that to some could seem more suited to a different generation.


We absolutly love the fact that Carol has gone against the stereotype and is wearing a bright blue pant, which has been paired perfectly with her colourful speckle print shirt, which is her favourite item purely because of the vibrant colours. The glitzy sandals and jewelery add an extra touch of glam to her already stylish outfit, and the black bag adds a nice contrast between the colours.


Mature ladies - put away the drab and boring outfits! It's time to add some colour and sparkle into your life. Follow in Carol's footsteps and don't be afraid to experiment with fashion.

Style Stalker: Charlene

By Jemma Mrdak


Our Style Stalker , Charlene, works in retail at one of her favourite Australian fashion houses, Cue. Charlene certainly knows a thing or two about how to pull an outfit together and lucky for her she gets to be stylish in the clothes that she loves all day, every day! Working in retail is a great opportunity to be exposed to an industry that is both exciting, fast paced, and forever changing.


Flaunting the classic peplum - which has been updated via a cutout neckline and ruffled hem - has Charlene loving the unique touches for the upcoming season. We simply admired her statement printed pants - paired nicely with silver flats. The look screams sophistication, with a touch of chic style - perfect for those working in the industry.


For those of you that are searching for new trends this season, definitely look towards printed pants and the updated peplum! A hot tip, according to Charlene, is that we will be seeing lots of tweed season. It's a great trans-seasonal fabric coming in preparation for Autumn/Winter 2014.
