AG Jeans Phoebe in 19 Year SplinterThe Claire Shirt by AG, Attico Mules, APC Half Moon Bag

This season a pair of statement jeans is a key style update for any wardrobe.

AG have nailed this trend with the Phoebe in 19 Year Splinter. Whilst a year or 2 ago I lusted after the most distressed and ripped denim, these days I prefer my rips to whisper on the hem of my jeans. This pair features a high waist, an uneven hem and two toned denim- points that are interesting but not over the top. I’m after a cleaner, “more European” look, that can work casually but also be dressed up. Pairing these jeans with a striped shirt creates a chic, but timeless look.

I love the versatility of these pieces and am certain they will become wardrobe staples.

Key features to look out for when shopping for statement denim:

  • Length– I prefer a cropped length to show off my shoes. Pair your shoe of choice with fishnet tights/socks for a very “of the moment” look.
  • Hem– look for a step, raw, or uneven hem.
  • Wash– I’m loving blue washes at the moment- especially vintage blue (think Levis).
  • Extra detail– embroidery, patchwork or two toned denim. Choose one not all.

Happy shopping!

LPA skirt 59, MCQ Blazer, Stuart Weitzman Boots (similar here), Dezzal Shirt 

I love the thrill of a good sale and often the best ones are the after Xmas Boxing Day Dales. Revolve (the sister site of FWRD) is having up to 50% off selected pieces.

Some of my strategies and tips when sale shopping:

  1. Plan for the next season- Although Australia is currently in the peak of summer, I like to use the opportunity to stock up on Autumn/Winter clothes which are on sale in the northern hemisphere.
  1. Play the currency exchange game. Brands which are based in the states will often be cheaper from the US compared to in store in Australia (even after the currency conversion). Case in point, denim brands such as Frame, Mother, 3 x 1.
  1. Shop smart- buy classic pieces but also buy pieces that add a punch to your wardrobe- such as this LPA embroided skirt.

Here is a selection of my favourite pieces on Revolve at the moment:

  1. Marjorelle Molly faux fur coat 
  2. ATM Cashmere Sweater
  3. Mother Hustler Fray Jeans
  4. LPA Jacket 58 
  5. 3 x 1 W3 Straight crop in camden
  6. Mother Zip ankle fray 
  7. J Brand Selena mid rise crop 
  8. Charli Cheshire sweater
  9. Charli Chance sweater
  10. T by Alexander Wang deep v neck pullover
  11. Rag and Bone cora cardigan 
  12. Lovers +Friends James Denim Jacket 
  13. Rag and B0ne shelby boot 

Happy shopping!

Aris Clothing “High Neck Cut Out Top”, Christopher Esber Skirt, APC half moon bag, Lacoste Sneakers, Triwa Watch and bracelet, Natasha Schweitzer earring

When I shop, the first thing I look for in an item is versatility.  If it cannot be easily mixed and matched with my existing wardrobe and cannot be worn in multiple situations, then it will more than likely be left in the store.

Which is why I love discovering new labels whose purpose is to deliver versatile clothing that transitions seamlessly from work to the weekend.  Aris Clothing is a perfect example – they design beautiful, quality pieces that are minimal but with a twist.  I’m wearing the “High Neck Cut Out Top” a simple design made interesting thanks to the neck detail.  By pairing this top with a mini skirt and sneakers it’s an easy weekend look.  Styling this top for work is a no brainer- simply add a high waist pencil skirt , blazer and a pair of pumps.

Buy less, buy smarter and you’ll never be left staring at a wardrobe full of clothes with “nothing to wear”.
