POLO FASHION INSPIRATION FOR MEN

With Land Rover Polo in the City just two weeks away, it’s time to start getting those stylish outfits together! While its generally all about ladies fashion, Polo In The City is just as much about the men.

Here’s some style inspiration for men and where to find the latest looks.

For more information about the do’s and don’ts for Polo Fashion, read more HERE.

POLO IN THE CITY || FASHION

I am so thrilled to be attending LANDROVER POLO IN THE CITY  Sydney this year, as a VIP Media Guest.
Of course, the first thing that came to mind, is ‘What will I wear?’

Polo Fashion, is the ever so glamorous and chic sister to Racing Fashion and the approach of what to wear, should be the same.

FOR THE LADIES…
Think understated elegance, with delicate fabrics and styles.
Lace in ivory, cream or neutral colours, pops of colour and prints, and a touch of monochrome are some of the go to options.

Styles can include… soft tailored lines, playsuits, jumpsuits, long gorgeous printed maxi dresses, an easy shift dress, a boho inspired, off the shoulder top and maxi skirt and of course, lets not forget the pant of the season.. a gorgeous delicate culotte!
Polo Fashion, is all about comfort but that shouldn’t affect the glamour!

Shoes…
Polo is NOT the day, to be wearing your latest stiletto purchase. So please opt for a gorgeous glam sandal, comfortable wedge or chunky heel option.

Accessories…
Sunglasses and a decent size handbag is a MUST…Head wear is not paramount, however a wide brim hat will not only protect you from a day in the sun, but also add some glamour to your outfit! Please NO fascinators!
Jewellery should be complementary to your gorgeous day outfit. Thin delicate pieces, in gold or silver are a fashion must have at the moment. However if you’re drawn to more of a statement piece, then opt for it in either gorgeous silver, gold. stones or pops of colour and leave the sparkly diamonte statements pieces at home.

Hair and Makeup…
Hair and makeup should be kept natural, but a pop of lip can never go astray!

FOR THE MEN…
Just like the ladies, Polo Fashion for men should be approached in the same way! A smart casual look is essential, there is no need to suit up!
The Polo is an opportunity to show off a little more of your personality. Have fun with pops of colour, print on print and add a point of difference.

Styles can include… A coloured printed shirt, or pop of colour, tailored pant, chino pants or shorts are a great option. A blazer with a stylish pocket square, is always a great way to complete an outfit. But please keep in mind the weather, if it’s going to be too hot, a shirt is suffice.
There is no requirements to wear a tie, but if you prefer the look then go ahead. A bow tie could always be fun too!

Shoes…
Smart leather or suede brogues or loafers are a great choice, or a leather boat shoe. Please do not wear thongs!

Accessories…
Once again, sunglasses should be a must. And for the men wanting that added protection or style, a woven or felt fedora, is a great addition!

Telstra Samsung Galaxy S6 & Galaxy S6 Edge Launch

On Friday 10th April, I was very excited to be the chosen Stylist for NSW to work with Telstra and launch the new Samsung Galaxy S6 & Galaxy S6 Edge at the Telstra on George Street.

I had the pleasure of working with a great team of talented people, including the gorgeous Nikki Phillips, the amazing duo Dasha and Colin from TheTrendSpotter.net, fashion blogger Helen Lee from SassyBella.com and the gorgeous girls from Inglot Australia

Telstra’s aim was to showcase the new phone as fashion forward, a perfect accessory for every man and woman. So a nation wide campaign was launched #4GXappeal… A team of Stylists, make up artists and photographers in every state, set up an amazing space in a Telstra store in each major city and to makeover the general public. Once makeup, styling and photos were taken, each image was then uploaded on the Telstra site for a chance to win the best street style Australia Wide. It was a huge event in every state and so much FUN!!

Here’s a little snippet of images, from behind the scenes and a couple participants.

I was also interviewed by the gorgeous Nikki Phillips on Styling and Style in general… so watch this space, for when it goes live x

 

 

 

COACH VIP LAUNCH | READY TO WEAR COLLECTION

Last night I had the pleasure of being invited by Instyle Magazine, to attend the VIP Launch of the new Coach Ready to Wear Collection. The event was held at the Coach store in Bondi Junction and it was an absolute pleasure to attend.

The event started off with Moet and Canapes and progressed to a intimate viewing of the latest collection. The pieces were absolutely gorgeous. A colourful collection of leather pieces and fine delicate knits.

I took my dear friend along and it was nice to be greeted by Kirsten Galliott, Editor of InStyle Magazine Australia, what a beautiful woman. Who was so generous with her time, to come over and meet me as soon as we arrived.

It was also lovely to have the opportunity to meet the gorgeous Carmen Hamilton from Chronicles of Her. So talented and passionate about what she does, in what can be quite a competitive industry. She was truly beautiful and down to earth!

Thank you to Instyle Magazine and Coach for the beautiful evening and gorgeous gift. xx

TV WEEK LOGIE AWARDS FASHION 2014

Last night saw the 56th Logie Awards 2014 at Crown Casino in Melbourne.
I remember having the honour of styling many female celebs for the big night, a few years ago now. But that was all before the days of social media… now I have the pleasure of viewing the amazing gowns via Instagram, before the show goes to air!!
Oh the joys of technology lol

I think most of our Aussies got it right last night, with very few gowns that I personally didn’t like. However, I like to focus on the positive and with that, here are my picks from last nights red carpet event.

And a quick note; Congratulations to all the Designers and Stylists behind the scenes, you all did a fantastic job.. xx
