Fashion to us isn’t a throw away wardrobe each season but rather a wardrobe that can move with the trends, update your look and most importantly allow you to stay true to your personal style!
As personal stylists and fashion influencers we literally spend months before each season gathering, sourcing and deciphering the trends that are seen first OS and in the high end fashion sector.
From our findings we then translate the key colours, styles and shapes into wearable looks that not only suit a variety of style personalities but also our Australian market and our own client’s needs.
This blog we have gathered some of the key trends, prints, shapes and “tweaks’ that will help you on your way to deciding what does or doesn’t have a place in your closet this Spring!
Once you have injected some of these wardrobe items the next step is to add some show pieces and guess what…Our next blog we showcase the accessories and fashion touches that will pull your entire wardrobe together!
Stay tuned…Sam & Jordi xx

Distressed Details On Denim – The rule here is don’t go plain and tidy – keep your denim distressed, damaged or embellished!
H&M, Witchery, EziBuy, Dejcuba, Cotton On, Dotti, Glassons
Frills, Ruffles & Pleats – Even if you aren’t a girly girl the new structured ruffles and frills will probably still feel right as they aren’t fussy and prissy – but rather more statement making!
EziBuy, Kmart, Witchery, Forever New, Sheike, Sportsgirl, Forever New
Statement Skirts – At last skirts have made a real come back and that means plenty of choice in the store. This season the skirt is a game changer and will breathe new life into all your looks from weekend to work.

Tie Fronts – Every season their is a new way to wear your tops. Recently the “half tuck” has been the buzz trend and now it is the “tie front”.
Oasis, Kmart, ???, Cotton On, Portmans, Sheike,
All In One Style – All your work is done with a “onesie”! No tucking in, no matching tops and bottoms, what more can we ask for. Yep, definitely time to give “all in one” styling a try!
Sheike, Veronika Maine, TEMT, French Connection
Oversized Pants / Culottes
Ok, not for everyone but when styled correctly (and that means the right shoes too!) the culotte or over sized pant can look amazing. If you aren’t sure but would like to try then we seriously suggest a VC “Style Update” Session where we can not only answer all your style dilemmas we will show you how to wear the trends for you!

The Shirtdress – This has to be the most functional fashion item we have seen in a long time! Worn as a dress but also able to double up as a jacket – the Shirtdress is the ultimate Spring/Summer must have wardrobe item. Plus, when buttoned in the mid torso they create waist definition without requiring a belt! BONUS!!

Mules & Espadrilles – Shoes are ALWAYS on the wardrobe update list as they can change the look of an entire outfit in a second! No matter how simplistic and outfit is a new season shoe can transform it immediately. This season there are two stand out styles – the Mule (slip on) and the Espadrille. Flat forms and embellished footwear are also key players for those who are die hard “shoeaholics” and can’t stop at just one pair!
