Shirt and bustier by Subtle and Simple, Stella clutch by Xnihilo, pants by Christopher Esber , Overture Earring by Natasha Schweitzer

There are 2 new labels that I’ve recently discovered that I’m really excited about.

The first is Subtle and Simple, a contemporary label based in Hanoi, Vietnam. Their latest collection is replete with oversized, relaxed structures, like the kimono sleeves on this shirt. Whilst perfect on its own, the shirt also looks amazing cinched in with the label’s bustier (which also doubles as a corset). The raw hems, reminiscent of Marques Almideia, adds that fashion cool girl touch.

The second is Xnihilo an Australia label which designs luxury, modern bags. This clutch is perhaps the coolest evening bag – it’s practical (large enough for the essentials) and different- I love the pony hair wristlet and the gold chain.

Keep your eye on these labels- their minimal modern designs are on trend, edgy and effortlessly cool.

Dressing down a cocktail dress

Christopher Esber dress, Mother Jeans, ATP Atelier sandals, APC Bag 

My approach towards fashion has evolved as I have gotten older. It’s no longer about abundance but rather about building a smarter, smaller wardrobe that works harder.  Each piece I curate should be able to sit within the intersection of a venn diagram and be used for multiple dress codes.

I purchased this Christopher Esber cocktail dress for a ridiculously cheap price at a recent warehouse sale (when it’s more than 80% off, you don’t think, you just handover the credit card lol). Rather than waiting for a “special occasion”,  I’ve dressed it down so it’s appropriate for a smart casual setting by layering it over cropped jeans.  Flat slides and a day bag also instantly work to tone down the dressy vibe.

What is your approach to fashion? Do you try to purchase pieces that work double duty?
