How To Dress On A Budget And Still Look Amazing!

We have always been a firm believer that you do not need to spend an entire month’s pay check to look your best. What’s more, you can look just as dazzling, sophisticated and chic with an item that you bought for $10.00. We all know of women who are all about dressing all things designer from head to toe. While this is no crime it is our opinion that it is a bit of overkill and unnecessary. Of course we don’t rule out completely the opportunity to spoil yourself with a designer piece on those desired occasions but budget fashion can exude just as much glam magnetism.

Here are a few easy tips to keep in mind to turning your budget purchases to designer looking territory.

1. Stock up on the basic, staple pieces

Don’t overlook the staple pieces that work wonders to your look. These staple items include basic tees, singlets, good quality denim jeans, a fitted and tailored skirt and/or dress to name a few. They are the building blocks to your look. You can mix these basic pieces with well invested blazers or pants and look ultra chic. Sometimes it is the simplistic looks such as a basic white tee teamed with a pair of skinny jeans and a designer handbag to make you look all designer-y. Check out our lookbook below.

Mixing Basic With Designer

2. Choose neutral & earth tones over brights and neons

These colors include;

  • black
  • white
  • gray
  • cream
  • tan
  • olive

The reason why these colors are timeless and fail proof is because of their sleekness factor. They are easily coordinated with one another, pastels, brights, prints and patterns making them ultra versatile and chic. These colors are the building basis and indispensable for any woman’s wardrobe, whether you are casual and laid back or trendy and adventurous with the fashion styles. The power of these colors are in it’s versatility and will ensure you will look elegant effortlessly.

3. Simplicity in handbags/clutches

A simple, no fuss handbag or clutch can go a long way in creating an overall image to make you look sophisticated and chic. It’s a simple piece of accessory that really contributes to your look. Clutches are a great accessory to pair with a day or evening outfit and really compliment your outfit.

4. Catch the sales

Who doesn’t love a good sale? You can be shopping for sales and get clothing at discounted prices all year round by a couple of savvy shopping tactics such as shopping at the end of season rather than the start of season, sample sales and sign up to online newsletters to be alerted of when a sale will be on or specials or discounts offered to members. Most retailers send regular email newsletters to their subscribers offering discounts on a weekly or monthly basis so it’s a great way for you to be alerted of the specials without having to go look for it. Brilliant.

5. Find a good tailor

Most people wouldn’t think it but having a good tailor can work miracles to your outfits to make you look so much more sophisticated and emulating designer styles. Have you noticed how the designer pieces looks immaculately form fitting and if you have ever tried it on, fits like a dream? Of course, it comes with the designer price tag.

How To Wear A Lace Dress

Lace dresses can get some flak for being too conservative and coquettish. It doesn’t have to be. The cut of the dress combined with the right lace type will spice up the lace dress thereby being anything but boring.

The right lace dress will make you not only loo k but feel super feminine and sexy. There are many types of lace and different cuts and styles of dress made in lace material. Here are a few tips on how to wear a lace dress.

1. Try colored lace

If you’re not daring enough to try vibrant colored lace, a neutral color such as beige or gold would perfectly allow you to steer from the blacks and whites while still looking super chic. A lace dress in gold is flattering for almost every skin tone. A gold lace dress is a fabulous pick as a party or cocktail dress, making it the perfect alternative to the conventional LBD.

2. Quality of lace

It would be a wise purchase decision to look at the quality of the lace as cheap laces tend to carry a cheap look and comes across as tacky. A universally flattering and versatile lace print is floral. It is delicate and feminine yet you can add a raw factor to it by accessorizing with more edgy accessories. A shorter length lace dress in a neutral color can serve as the ultimate weapon to look good for any occasion. Switch it out with your hair, makeup, accessories and shoe choices.

3. Let the lace dress take centre stage

The lace dress is a standalone statement dress so let it be. Daring girls may opt for a shorter cut lace dress that is slightly sheer. However for the more modest girls, go for a dress that just grazes above the knee or knee length. Add a slip underneath if too sheer. Keep accessories to a minimal and if you do accessorize, pick simplistic and timeless jewellery pieces such as a pair of hoop earrings and a simple necklace. Finish off with a pair of peeptoe heels or patent nude pumps for a feminine and flirty fun look.

2. White + transparency

You’re probably not going to go all out sheer like that on the catwalk but do embrace the sheer side of all white transparency for the season. While this look is runway worthy, it isn’t practical for or is a pick for everyday outfit pick. It would be a sensible choice to opt for oueces that show just the right amount of transparency that you are comfortable with. Accessorize with minimalist silver jewellery and accessories to keep the look chic and flawless.

10 Best Styling Tips

Knowing the basics of styling can mean you will be able to save a lot of hard earned cash and the ability to look amazing and be ultra versatile with what you already have in your wardrobe.

Looking good doesn’t necessarily mean always following the latest fashion trends and styles but rather working existing fashion pieces to make you look up to the minute, make you feel confident and of course, look superb.

Follow a few of these basic styling tips to your daily dressing and outfits and you’ll be a savvy styling fashionista in a flash every…day.

Here is our top 10 basic styling tips:

  • Invest in wardrobe staples: These include white tanks, black singlets, blouses, blazers, black leggings etc. These pieces will stand the test of time and fashion seasons. They are also highly versatile to create any look for any occasion and ensure you will look chic and flawless every time.

sheer-black-chiffon-blouse

  • Know your body shape: By knowing your body shape enables you to maximize your best assets and disguise those features which aren’t so flash. Also, it will ensure you will have the best fit and flattering silhouette when you shop for clothing. Sometimes not all trends will suit every one of us and while some pull it off flawlessly, it doesn’t mean all of us can achieve that. Some people may say that if you have the confidence to wear it, you will look good and be able to pull it off. Could be a bit of a controversy but we think not. If it’s a trend that you don’t think you can pull off, it’s probably best to not try it out in public.
  • The Little Black Dress: Well, this is an obvious one. Works every time when you have “nothing to wear” or feel bloated. Makes you look amazing. Makes you feel great. What’s more to it? It’s a must have and there’s never too many LBDs to have in your closet. Have a few casual little black dresses for day and a few more little black dresses for night wear. You are completely covered fashionista.

little-black-dress-envious-fashions

  • The magical powers of high heels: A pair of heels can instantaneously transform a look. One minute, plain to next minute sexy siren. A pair of patent nude pumps and black pump heels works for any and all occasions.

Pumps

  • Find your signature look: Just like Victoria Beckham is known for her polished, sleek and fitted outfits to Sienna Miller’s gypsy boho look. Experiment and find out what looks work best for you, flatter you and stick with it. A fool proof style never goes out of season.
  • When in doubt, it is better to overdress: That uncomfortable feeling when you feel out of place when you’re under-dressed. Maybe the invite or the occasion didn’t really specify the dress code but rather than feeling like you want to crawl into a hole and stay there because everyone else is dressed up, it is best to adopt the look that is prepped and polished rather than out of place under-dressed.
  • Update a look with accessories: The best way to update a look or outfit is to add accessories. For a casual or rather simplistic outfit, add a statement accessory item to jazz up the look. Whether this be a statement necklace, earrings or chunky bangles, the accessories are only limited to your imagination. The easiest way to reinvent and update your look with minimal spend and effort!

accessories-jewellery-update-your-look

  • Have a good tailor: A good tailor goes a long way. Sometimes we have that piece of clothing that we’re high sentimental and it just cannot be re-purchased. Find a local tailor who does an awesome job at mending your clothes. P.S We have a in house tailor at our Perth store location who does a variety of alterations to evening dresses, dresses, trousers and more. During the ball season, we have a high demand for evening gown alterations for the perfect fit. Contact us for more information.
  • Add some sparkle: It’s amazing just by adding something sparkly makes all the difference to an outfit. You instantly look glam which makes you feel confident.
  • Be trendy and confident:  You’ll naturally look more amazing in what you wear when you ooze the confidence when wearing your outfit. Having a knack for knowing what’s hot is a great thing but it’s also about finding a style that looks hot on you and then finding trending pieces to incorporate into your look. Be comfortable and confident and don’t be afraid to let your personality shine through your fashion outfits. Be proud of your style and have fun!

Happy styling!

Golden Girl: How To Wear A Gold Dress

Gold used to be a color that the younger women would turn their backs on because it was often perceived as an “old lady” color.

That perception has certainly changed of late with the mad craze for all things gold, gold and more gold!

Gold is now considered one of the hottest fashion colors and a must have color for every fashionista out there; both in clothing and fashion accessories.

Gold adds a dazzling touch to your outfit and it can be styled so many different ways that is glam and possesses unmatched style statement.

Gold is super versatile and you can go for a  statement bold outfit or more subtle with jewellery and accessories.

How To Wear A Gold Dress

Doning a gold dress will ensure all eyes are on you as you step into the room. And you want all eyes on you for the right reason.

How?

  • Choose a dress that really compliments your body shape. Pick a style of dress that you love and one that makes you feel and look totally fabulous. The easy way to do this is pick a body feature of yours that you really like. Your cleavage? Your legs? Your booty? Go ahead and pick a dress that will highlight the feature you want to show off.
  • Wear the gold dress  according to the occasion. For a fancier occasion, you can go all out glam with the gold dress with darker eye makeup. Go for a bronze tone eyeshadow and experiment with a smokey bronze with a gold eyeshadow or glitter for that extra pizzaz. Add sparkly gold jewellery to compliment the occasion and a pair of killer heels with gold tone accents. Gold does not have to be all for a dressier occasion and you can dress it down by the choice of accessories and other clothing pieces you pair with gold. Wear a denim jacket and a pair of boots to carry a casual yet still uber chic look.
  • Confidence. Yes. Wearing gold requires confidence. Who would’ve thought? When you wear the gold dress, you will stand out. The goal here is to look effortlessly chic and ooze confidence. The point here is that you are making a bold statement, featuring the dress. You want to turn heads and wow people, not only with the gold dress but also with the way you carry yourself. The key is, you should feel good about what you’re wearing. This will really shine through and project the confidence. This is the reason for pointer #1 when we say to choose a dress you really love, highlights your best feature/s and makes you look stunning. When you feel good, you look fabulous.

The Four Universally Flattering Clothing Colours

Have you ever noticed some women are always so impeccably styled? From the fashion trends they rock, to their chic and million dollar style? Everything seems so perfectly coordinated.

Have you perhaps noticed their choices of colors of their clothing pieces?

Some colors tend to suit some people better than others as a result of their skin tone and hair color. By choosing the right color to enhance your skin and hair shade, you will naturally and effortlessly compliment the rest of your look.

Some colors work for all skin and hair tones because they lay in the middle of the color spectrum, meaning they have the perfect balance of the warm and cool shades.

Here are four clothing colours that are universally flattering on any skin colour or hair shade.

Flattering color 1:  Eggplant purple

There are many shades of purple and all beautiful in their own rights. The “perfect purple” is the eggplant purple. It is a very versatile shade like black and navy but is a more exciting . It makes a great alternative to the conventional blacks and should also form as a wardrobe staple color.

purple-cocktail-dress

Flattering color 2: Red

Whilst being one of the most universally flattering clothing colors, it is not always the color of choice.  Red is a bold color and demands attention, and gets it. The color red being associated with confidence, sexiness and attention is considered a flattering colour because it the central color of the color spectrum. A very bright and bold colour it compliments every skin tone and hair color, therefore making it a great color to have in your wardrobe to dress up or down, day or night.

Flattering color 3: Teal

On the color spectrum teal sits directly opposite pink. What this means is that opposite colors compliment each other beautifully. When you wear a teal colored clothing item, it will naturally enhance the healthy pink flush of your cheeks for a beautiful and natural feminine look. Besides being a stunning color that suits everyone it is a color that can be worn all year around. Unlike it’s sister counterpart, turquoise – is usually more worn and preferred as a summer look and color to relect the fun factor.

Flattering color 4: Blush rose

Blush rose is a shade between light pink and peach as the name rightfully describes. And yes, grown women can still wear pink without looking like they hadn’t stepped out of their childhood years. You can wear this beautiful color and still look sophisticated. Blush rose is more of a neutral color than it is a pastel which is versatile to go with any other clothing color combination. Not only does blush rose look fabulous on every skin tone, it highlights the skin tone’s natural flush to make you glow when wearing it.
