Styling with Geometric Prints

Bold geometric prints of all sizes have been revealed amongst top designers during their Spring 2013 runway shows. Louis Vuitton presented a white and yellow and classic black and white checkered catwalk. Louis Vuitton's classic square block pattern shows an influence from the 1960's. Other designers modernised this print by cutting out squares and filling these negative spaces with mesh whilst others have played on the check print, making it more subtle choosing similar tones for the background and print. 
 Amongst the geometric shapes, designers have integrated wide vertical stripes/lines into their collections. This is such a fun trend to invest in. If you are one of many who have a black filled wardrobe why not invest in a fun geometric piece to jazz up your winter looks. I have styled some geometric inspired outfits for you below. All products are available at Highpoint Shopping Centre or check out their online store with the links provided below.

Good news ladies, you don't have to wait for a 'Grease' dress up party to wear leather leggings/pants.  Leather pants, leggings panelled with Faux leather as well as the new 'wet' textile pant are the perfect addition to your winter wardrobe. Whilst creating an edgy look, they can be styled in a conservative manner by layering under a long coat. I also like to style them with different lengths and textures creating a rich winter look.
Below I have styled some looks using either leather/faux and wet look pants and leggings. All products are available from Highpoint Shopping Centre.

Herringbone-Houndstooth-Pinstripes-Check were a hot trend to preview down the 2013 Fall runway. Models were draped with these classic textiles creating a bold, empowering statement. I have always adored these classic haberdashery fabrics and have incorporated them in several of my own designs over the years.  In my look below I thought I'd exaggerate the check theme by combining pieces from three separate suits that I have designed. (individual suits shown below).  

To follow I have styled some Herringbone-Houndstooth-Pinstripes-Check inspired looks from local retailers. I encourage you to embrace this trend as we enter winter. You'll look incredibly stylish and elegant. All products are available at Highpoint Shopping Centre.

Highpoint Retailer Profile: Glassons

A part of my role as Fashion Contributor for Highpoint Shopping Centre, I will regularly choose a particular retailer to profile. I selected Glassons this month as it opened its new store in Highpoint Shopping Centre only last Friday.  What I love about Glassons is that it provides you with the hottest trends at such an affordable price. You don't have to break the bank to feel on trend.
 To help promote its launch Glassons new store at Highpoint, has set up a 'Custom Varsity Stand.' Simply purchase a plain T-shirt for around $25.00 (several colours available) and have your chosen text ready to be printed for free.
I have styled some looks using only Glassons products below. I encourage you to check out the store. I guarantee you'll come out with some treasures for an absolute bargain.

Happy Mother's Day to the most incredible & inspiring woman I know. 
I love you mum!

Dressing Up a Beanie

 There is something incredibly cool about styling a beanie into your look. It can either add that pop of colour to your monochromatic outfit or can create a sense of fun and playfulness. We of course cannot forget it's practical purpose and that is; keeping your head and ears warm. The beanie can help create that androgynous style that is so popular this winter. 
I don't think your beanie necessarily needs to perfectly coordinate with your ensemble to make it work. It can be completely contrasting to your look offering an effortless vibe. I have styled some looks based around the 'beanie' below. These products are all available from Highpoint Shopping Centre  or click through the links provided under each image to visit their online store. 

Have a great week!
