The Classic Wrap Shirt – Three Ways

What do you look for in a wardrobe investment piece? Quality? Versatility? Wow factor? Timelessness? A garment that fits and flatters so well that you can’t bear to leave the boutique without it? The Classic Wrap Shirt ($279.00) from Living Silk has all of that in spades. Let’s talk quality – it’s 100% silk – which means if you look after it you’ll be wearing it for the next 20 years or more! As for versatility, I’ve styled and tied this shirt three different ways for three very different looks – (the ever elusive) smart casual, corporate and evening. Smart Casual I’ve worn the classic wrap shirt here over ripped white jeans with heels. I’ve also tied this shirt at the front. Now, of course you could also wear flats with this look too. Corporate To take this shirt to work, I’ve worn it tied at the back over a black pencil skirt with simple black heels. You could also wear it over some tailored pants if pencil skirts are not your thing. Evening This look is perfect for special events. You’ll notice I’ve tucked the shirt in this time and added some sparkly earrings and heels (and champagne!). Now, the fit. This shirt is true to size. I usually wear a 10-12/M in tops and in the images above I’m wearing a medium. The wonderful thing about this wrap style is that you can tie it as tightly or loosely as you’re comfortable with, so you know you’re going to find your perfect fit. This shirt is well worth popping into Living Silk’s Brisbane boutique (La Trobe Tce, Paddington) for. Do yourself...

This means you’ve got heaps of time to pick up ANY (or all, I’m easy going like that) of these pieces, ensuring your wife (AKA me) has a really happy birthday come Sunday. But enough about me, I’m sure you’re going to love these too…   Classic Wrap Shirt – Berry This classic wrap shirt from Living Silk is the epitome of sophistication and elegance.  It is perfect for wearing to all your special events, but is versatile enough to wear to work or even with jeans for a super chic casual look. Yes, it is expensive at $279, but silk of this quality lasts forever – it is truly worth the investment.   Riptide White Jeggings I am a sucker for white jeans, and I have been dying to try on these Riptide Jeggings from Little Party Dress to see if they really are as comfy as they look!

This Season’s Favourite Pants: The Jogger

Jogger pants. Have you discovered them yet? No? Joggers are essentially a slim fit pant with an elasticised cuff. What I love about them is that the cuff hits right at the smallest part of your leg – drawing the eye down to the ankle and giving a slimming look. These pants work really well on all body shapes, and particularly well on those of us with bigger thighs. They’re also really easy to dress up with heels and make a great alternative to wearing jeans (read: work appropriate). You can wear a range of different tops with jogger pants too. Because they’re a slim fit, wearing a flowy or oversized top looks great. Or you can pair them with a simple striped tee… One general rule I like to follow is to wear footwear that finishes below the cuff – such as heels, ballet flats or trainers. Check out some of my favourite jogger pants for this season below. Witchery (similar style) Country Road Bellalido Dress Temple Little Lace Boutique How will you wear jogger pants this season? Lily...
