I feel it’s extra of a northern hemisphere factor than right here in Australia, the place the temperatures in lots of components of the nation won’t drop for a superb two months. And even after they do, I’ll positively be carrying the Ada and Lou Gracie costume.

White works so superbly within the cooler months labored tonally again with camel/tan colors – suppose boots and a fake fur vest, leather-based jacket or longline cardi. Until then I’ll be carrying it with strappy heels or sandals at any alternative.

If you’re new to Styling You, my Model and Me posts are of their eleventh yr. I do know, I can’t consider it both.

I began them as a result of so lots of my then private styling purchasers (I finished seeing purchasers in 2012) couldn’t think about themselves within the garments they noticed on fashions in marketing campaign photographs in retailer, in magazines or on-line. This is pre-Instagram. Just. And positively pre-brands showcasing their clothes on extra than simply the normal mannequin measurement. 

I wished to supply a unique visible perspective from what was seen to the style shopper. It’s not a greater visible perspective. It’s only a DIFFERENT one. I took that six steps additional in 2019 after I began my very own label, selecting to spend money on photographing all our clothes on every measurement that we promote.
