MY NUMERO UNO – THE BLACK AND WHITE NIKE. DUE TO MY OBSESSION WITH TRAINERS/SNEAKERS/HIGH TOPS ETC, I HAVE QUITE A FEW PAIRS. NOT ALL OF THEM ARE USED FOR TRAINING AT THE GYM, OR PILATES… WEAR THEM WITH SKINNY OR RIPPED JEANS, GREY TEE AND A BLAZER, AND YOU’VE TURNED YOUR STRAIGHT UP OFFICE LOOK INTO A COMFORTABLE YET SOPHISTICATED FRIDAY OOTD. I WEAR MINE WITHLEATHER LEGGINGS, AND A BASSIKE TEE– THE PERFECT OUTFIT FOR WEEKEND ERRANDS / BRUNCH / COLES SHOP.
Lately I’ve been starting to clear out my wardrobe of expensive ‘trend’ pieces i’ve bought. Then i thought, that money could go to one solid statement piece that can take me through seasons, and then when a flash trend comes along, use budget friendly options such as Zara & Topshop. I am loving Saint Laurent, Ellery and Roberto Cavalli at the moment. Asymmetrical flatters all shapes, and well, Celine…need i explain?
Australian high-street purveyors of modern fashion Cue, are known for their modern take on classic designs that are as on-trend, as they are accessible. Now the fashion conscious label has stretched their aesthetic output to include sunglasses — launching Cue Eyewear. Available through MyerSunglass Hut across Australia, as well as from Cue Online and in 22 Cue stores around the country, the line of eyewear is a typically chic reappropriation of timeless looks. Referencing classic shapes like the square wayfarer, the cats eye and the Jackie O-esque oversized style, the range reveals a sleek design aesthetic, paired with the kind of tough silhouettes that could leave even an Olsen twin with a case of specs-envy.
