David Jones Autumn/Winter Launch 2014

David Jones Autumn Winter 2014 Runway Recap


Who can think about jumpers, cardigans, pants and woolen knits at this stage as we are right in the middle of another heat wave! Well David Jones can, launching their Autumn / Winter ranges last Wednesday in Sydney. I'm not smitten with winter weather either, but we have to find out whats hot and whats not in Fall 2014. But there is one thing that makes me jump up and down and more accepting of Autumn, its the DJ'S (David Jones)  Autumn / Winter runway show. DJ'S always makes their runway shows more sophisticated, sleek and elegant when they cleverly layer up the winter woollies. But it looks like the year of the horse that we will be showing more skin then ever. Cue, the sexy black leather bodice dress......

I am really surprised with DJ'S designs this year, each designer / label bring something contemporary and fresh for Winter 2014. But I also get a giddy feeling when I see new collections launching at any time. Can't wait to shop these looks, when the mercury falls.

How to wear pastels



Hello me fellow fashionistas,

In my last blog post I wrote about how the sugar rush is hitting our wardrobes and in today's post I will be explaining how to wear these sweet candy colours. With the warm weather we are in (Australia) experiment with playful neon's and bold jewel tones with pastel colours. But these soft and girly tones can wash you out if you wear the wrong hues together head to tow. Below these are my tips and tricks to make this very feminine hue refreshing and modern.

1. Mix it with Neutrals
Pair your pastels with beige, whites and grey. It will mellow the look but you will still have the feminine factor.


2.  Layer with white. 
Add crisp white with pastels especially for office wear. The pastel colours stand out more against white and creates a sophisticated look.

3. Take it to your nails. 
What better way to incorporate a colour trend then starting with your nails. Easy to do and looks oh so lovely.


4. Add a contemporary and modern approach.
Think geometric prints, symmetrical lines and box shapes. Find pastel garments which scream future runway chic.

5. Mix in the sport luxe trend. 
One of the hottest trends from 2013 - 2014, mix it the luxe sports look with pastels to create a not so feminine, pretty look. So, toughen up its time to go luxe!

6.Pastel Jewellery
Not keen on pastels on you but like these sweet colours? Buy some funky pastel jewellery to add to your wardrobe.




I hope this has inspired you to incorporate these sugar coated hues into your wardrobe.

Always With Style,

xoxo
