OVERSIZED FASHION

The oversized fashion trend…

This season we are seeing no shortage of the oversized fashion trend in dresses, pants and shirts. This trend is not for everyone and can make you look completely overwhelmed. 

At STYLED BY JADE we recommend creating your oversized statement with one oversized piece per outfit. Oversized garments are not traditionally figure flattering, so pair your oversized piece back with well fitted garments to create balance and a more shapely silhouette keeping your look effortlessly chic.

Let’s take a look at some of our favourite celebrity  looks.

KITTEN HEEL COMBACK

It’s a welcome comeback to this seasons must-have shoe, the kitten heel.  Push those sky high stilettos to the back of the wardrobe and say hello to style and comfort.

The kitten heel has made a major appearance strutting down the catwalks at this seasons spring/summer fashion shows. Leading the pack were Dior, Celine and Gucci with this vintage feminine look. 

Embrace the kitten heel that is heavily embellished, metallic or a block colour. This look is complete with a sling back or a pointed toe. Your feet will be delighted with your pretty and practical choice.

Here are some of our favourites for the season.

THE DECONSTRUCTED SHIRT…

A trend we are loving right now is the deconstructed shirt. A deconstructed shirt is an effortlessly chic button down shirt modernised with a sexy feminine twist.

A modern deconstructed shirt is a staple for this season.  Elaborate oversized sleeves, backless cut-outs, asymmetrical hems, off the shoulder layers, wrap arounds and ruffles are all leading the way in street style fashion.

Team your shirt with denim shorts, a denim skirt or a frayed cigarette leg denim pant.  Add a sneaky heel to glamorise the look or go for a casual sport luxe sneaker.

R U OK?

 

 

We are so fortunate to be living in progressive times and have the ability to discuss many subjects that in previous times may have been taboo or unspoken.

” R U OK? Day is an annual day in September dedicated to remind people to ask family, friends and colleagues the question, “R U OK?”, in a meaningful way, because connecting regularly and meaningfully is one thing everyone can do to make a difference to anyone who might be struggling. ”

Jade and I are extremely passionate about assisting our clients to boost their self esteem and self confidence through what they wear.

Research has shown that we attach great emotions to our clothing. Choosing clothing that make us feel good helps boost our moods.

When you are feeling good you have higher self esteem and are able to perform at a much higher level in both your personal and professional life.

At STYLED BY JADE we encourage you to be the best version of you, through your fashion choices. Your clothes can dictate your moods and thoughts. They change how you carry yourself and how you interact with others. When you feel good on the outside, you are more likely to feel good on the inside.

Next time you wake up feeling low, pop on your favourite outfit, and see how your day pans out. Dressing well really does supply you with a genuine surge of energy that flows positively into all areas of your life.

CORPORATE ATTIRE GUIDELINES WITH T.M.LEWIN

What should I wear to work?

I have the pleasure of working with so many amazing clients, from all walks of life.
However there is definitely an overwhelming increase of corporate clients, wanting to step up their game when it comes to their image and the way they present themselves.
The most asked question is, what is appropriate to wear to work?
If you work in a corporate environment, this seems to be a commonly asked question. We are finding that certain companies are becoming a little more lenient when it comes to dress code, but I believe that the way you present your self should still be high up on your priority list.
You’re a product of your business” Now I don’t mean, just people that own their own business… NO I mean YOU!! You are your business and how we present ourselves, is very important! 

I had the pleasure of having a chat with the staff from T.M Lewin, a great label from the UK, with an increasing following in Australia… and came across a great style guide, for men and women in the corporate business sector.
This guide allows you to have a brief understanding of what’s safe to wear, when you feel a little out of your comfort zone!
