What's new in evening wear

March 14, 2018

Hit the town dressed to impress with these top tips—they're as easy as one, two, three.

This season is all about embracing individuality, having fun, making an impact and flaunting your own brand of uniqueness. So many trends are happily coexisting at the moment that it’s near impossible to make a fashion misstep.
I am loving the move by brands such as Gucci and Balenciaga in bringing us staple transeasonal items throughout recurrent seasons–it’s now easier than ever to make a big-ticket purchase with the assurance that it won’t quickly become passé.
Embrace your inner wild child, have fun with fashion and dare to take a few risks!
( Above) Make a bold move
Sequin and lamé are on call , so go forth and light up the night. Make waves with a big and bold solo earring–designers are selling them individually. Cut outs are also a sexy new trend, but only for the brave hearted.

Embrace boho-chic
Tune into your inner hippy with the help of romantic frills, feathers and pastels–all are trending this season. Pair long dresses with flats or kitten heels as fashion is firmly in favour of the more comfortable spectrum of the shoe department.

Opt for a print and a pattern
Patterns and prints are back so have a go at combining clashing styles. Wide legged pants rejoin the fashion fray as firm and comfortable favourites. It also can't hurt to invest in a logo-heavy bag because logomania is here!

Florals are a constant
Florals are here to stay and exaggerated shoulders are a hot ticket–accessorise with metallics and throw on your favourite kitten heels.

Go big or go home
For the ultimate date-night outfit, choose a backless rose strewn maxi dress then throw on an oversized cardigan and a sparkly low heel, because this season elegance is all about comfort.

It has been a loooong hiatus between posts, partly because I was so busy shooting this story before Mercedes Benz Sydney Fashion Week and partly because my once loyal computer decided to crash...taking all my precious stuff with it into a techno grave (always back it up kids, don't be like me!).

I must admit, I'm quite spoilt when it comes to holidays. Having a holiday house in Croatia does not help - what use is it travelling to the other side of the world for 2 weeks? Jet leg would eat up all the fun! It's a blessing having a job in which I can get […]
