style it up

One day many years ago, I was showing a wholesale collection in the Sydney showroom to one of our best accounts.   The owner had a team of fashion savvy girls who worked the floor and were trying on everything (literally).   One of the girls put on a pantsuit with a jacket and just stood there in front of the mirror.   The outfit looked terrible.   The buyer said “well, you’ve got to style it up a little!”   She rolled up the sleeves, popped the collar, kicked her hips out to the side, added a belt and voila, the outfit looked amazing.

Every time I put an outfit together, I say these words to myself “style it up a little”…they resonate with me still today.   What item can I add?   What can I do to make a particular piece of clothing shine?   What will tie back to make a little story?   Any outfit you wear, has the ability to look either simple and lack-lustre, or supremely insane.   It just takes a little styling and some good attitude.

Take this jacket for example.   On the hanger it looks nice…but worn a little off the shoulder, tied at the waist or draped over your bag, adds a real edge to your outfit.   Never be afraid to style up a piece of clothing to make it stand out.   As long as you’re happy in your decision and back it up with confidence, you can’t go wrong.

Another thing I like to do, is add an extra pieces of clothing.   Whether it’s a shirt under your jacket as an extra layer or something tied around your waist, this adds balance and makes everything more interesting.   Sometimes I just carry a luxurious jacket over my arm… Well, why not!   Ha ha, you love me xx
