Hot Picks for the week

Hot Picks for the week

Here are some fab things I've seen this week. Enjoy!

 

 

MAX - Peacock Tunic - $159

0eabb 3db 2b 4f 9b 13c 0804b 7a 5aaace 18

This tunic is great with black or dark-coloured fitting trousers and ankle boots. Wear a short, fitted jacket over top or a dark coloured merino underneath. Keep jewellery to a minimum for this piece, the fabulous print is more than enough attraction - a bracelet or several bangles would look good or plain, simple earrings. This should suit all of our body shapes:  hour glass, bigger top half, wider bottom area and straight.

 

 

 

The Warehouse - Garage Metallic Print Leggings - NZD $19 

 

Garage Metallic Print Leggings $19

 

These are fab.  In fact so fab I bought myself a pair.  A friend thought I'd got them from some expensive boutique!  This winter is all about mixing up colours, textures and patterns, or if you're not that brave or prefer a more minimalist look, wear them with plain colours. 

 

 

 

TS 14+ - Oriental Jacket - AUD $169.95, NZD $214.95

This jacket, with its classic black & white print and long-line style will be a winner in your wardrobe for a long time.  It's available in sizes 14-24 and should suit all of our body shapes.  Black & white teams well with all colours - imagine a burst of yellow, purple, blue, orange or hot pink... and then of course there's always black.

 

 

EZIBUY - Capture European Sleeveless Dress - now from $59.99

This little black dress is a very versatile piece and will work well with any jacket, particularly a short, tailored one, or a cardi.  Depending on the size of the sleeve opening, you could wear a long-sleeve merino underneath.  Your selection of jewellery can dress it up or down.  You can add a splash of colour with a coloured jacket or accessories.  For $59.99 it's a great price and a classic style that you can keep for ages, refreshing the look with accessories and other clothing.  This would suit hour glass and straight body shapes.  

The jacket accompanying the dress in this photo is Capture European Blazer.

 

 

EZIBUY - Essentials Smart Pants - $49.99

These are fab classic style pants.  I love the flat front. They come in a range of colours and look great with flats, as seen in this photo, or with an ankle boot. They would look great with waist-length tops, longer tunics and blazers.  They are very versatile pants that you could dress up for work, and down for more casual occasions.  They will suit hour glass, bigger top and straight figures.  

 

 

 

TS 14+ - Cut Out Tunic - AUD $69.95 NZD $89.95

This tunic is such a versatile piece, worn under shorter tops to add a zing of colour and interest or part of an overall layering effect. I love the fab laser-cut detailing along the hemline.  It comes in four colours - black, fushcia pink, hay and purple.  

 

 

 

VIRTU - Ambient Drape Top - AUD $69.95, NZD

 

1986_15373_7996

 

 

This is a very flattering top with an A-line fit.  It accentuates the figure at the top and drapes from just below the bustline to skim across our lumps and bumps. A wonderful v-neck which is everybody's friend, particularly those with a large bust, and accessories can really dress it up. You can also keep it plain for a more casual look. It will look fab teamed with a tapered or straight leg trouser and a heel (boot or shoe). Available in sizes 14-24.

 

 

MI PIACI - Citron Black Ankle Boot - NZD $310

Ankle boots are big again this Winter, and a must have in your wardrobe. They look great with straight or fitted trousers, leggings, skirts and dresses.  I like these dressy boots because they'll carry you well from work to casual, e.g. with jeans.  I know a lot of women struggle with boots because they've got thick calves - ankle boots are your saviour. It's worth investing in a good pair of boots that you can wear and wear and wear.
