Sometime style and sophistication don’t go hand in hand, for example pajama dressing and athleisure wear. Keeping your look on trend and still ensuring you spend your money on versatile investments, is important. Here are 5 looks that are on trend and won’t sacrifice sophistication/ your budget.
Boudoir Dressing – Boudoir inspired dressing involves a little lace paired with satin or silk fabrics. Styles project luxury and comfort, with loose strappy tops and straight leg pants. Go from work wear to after hours by adding or removing a form fitting blazer. Look for warm or dark colours with similar coloured or contrasting lace.
Victorian Blouse – Victorian blouses involve a little lace and frills. Look for high necked, long sleeve tops with intricate lace detailing. Choose colours in beige and off white. Pair your top with dark jeans and black ankle boots.
Skirt Suiting – Skirt suiting was fashionable in the 20s, but has become trendy as office wear as the weather heats up. Play with fun pastels and vary the structure of your skirts to create an updated look.
Cold Shoulder – Cold shoulder tops and dresses are great in hot weather and give you the chance to show a little skin gracefully. Pair a bright flowery top with jeans or shorts. Opt for sandals for a casual look and switch to a wedge heel to give your outfit a little more omph.
Menswear – Menswear is comfortable and very smart. Choose jackets that have straight minimalist lines in black, white or beige. Pair your jacket with a white shirt and dark jeans or pants to complete the look.
