Turtlenecks are seeing a resurgence as one of winters must-have wardrobe items. What was once a standard nondescript sweater for fall/winter has now become a full-on industry-wide trend. The key to taking your look from wiggles to street style? Learn how to layer in unexpected ways!
The cardigan trend was really in full swing throughout the '90s. While the cardigan is just one of many '90s trends having a second life, its comeback can also be attributed to brands like Miu Miu, Alexander Wang, and Chanel all of which included cardigans in recent collections.
Quite possibly the easiest throw-on-and-go piece from the whole utility trend is boiler suit. The perfect everyday piece that you can wear paired with simple tee and sneakers. If you are looking for a sophisticated boiler suit that you can wear it at your office, try one in leather and style it with extra feminine pieces.

It's Friday (TGIF) and I can't wait to kick off my heels and get casual! I don't know about you, but this winter I've lived in vintage tee's, denim and my Bubish fur!

I'm all about comfort on the weekends but I love to keep it fresh so here is some #inspo to take you into the weekend!
At the risk of looking like a Crayola here are my top 5 tips on the art of tonal dressing. Do you rate it? or hate it!
1. If you feeling shy, pick a subtle shade for a softer look. Try nude!
2. One of the simplest ways to master this look is to do it with tailoring! Try a matching blazer and trouser combo.
3. Don't be afraid to mix different shades of the same tone. Try light pinks with hot pinks!
4. Be sure to contrast different textures of the same colour like to give your outfit dimension. Try leather and silk!
5. Be brave! It always feels a little ridiculous to try out a new bold trend, but wheres the fun in playing it safe?
“She’s certainly not bourgeois or classic,” said Vaccarello. “She has a huge respect for Saint Laurent, but not in the first degree. So I thought of her taking a vintage dress and cutting into it.” Anthony Vaccarello chose to hold his debut show for Saint Laurent in the impressive surroundings of a palatial building site—a former monastery, later a military headquarters, which has been derelict in the heart of Paris and is now being restored as the Saint Laurent headquarters.
Embracing the ’80s he played on it with plunging bustier tops in leather or velvet, pelmet skirts and boyfriend jeans, a section devoted to draped gold lamé, iterations of skinny smoking suits, and variations on one-sleeved dresses.
Melbourne based jeweller Linden Cook launched her label in late 2013 with eldest daughter and now business partner Georgie Amad.
With the desire to turn their talents into a successful and unique Australian brand, the dynamic mother-daughter duo was born. Linden’s key components when creating her jewellery line in her Melbourne studio are always simplicity and individuality. Cook chooses to custom design each individual piece within the collection and no two pieces are ever the same due to her embracing organic forms, lines and shapes.
Each piece within the new Collection 2.0 captures complete style and character in such a way that excites lovers of both fine and bold jewellery everywhere. “The unrefined beauty of the materials and uniqueness of each piece is heightened by our love of imperfections”, says Amad.
Linden Cook’s ethos includes using all recycled materials where possible to maintain sustainable production. “I try not to overwork some materials but simply mould and shape them carefully in order to retain their already unique and beautiful imperfections”, says Cook.
The latest collection, ‘Collection 2.0’ is bold, mysterious as well as being easy to wear. The designs are raw, textured and sexy with on trend yet unique pieces including lace up chokers, textured hoops and chain earrings.
Linden Cook aims to create pieces that have never before been imagined, by using only organic and raw materials and predicting trends mixed in with the desire to create pieces that will forever remain stylish and in demand.
No two pieces are ever the same! My current favourite piece is the Lace up Choker in Sand shop here
I think it was Axel Rose who originally elevated the bandana to the 'cool', but in 2016 we've found a whole new appreciation for this humble accessory. Not only can it add a pop of colour to your outfit, it is very versatile. Recently spotted wrapped around the handles of Louis Vuitton bags, scarves are the next hot accessory trend. Easily styled; my favourite way to wear is folded and wrapped around my neck as a choker.
Where to buy? Keep in mind: as good as a new scarf is, a vintage one can be even better. My sister recently nabbed the coolest vintage scarf from our local second hand shop -very hermes inspired. Otherwise check out the range of bandana's from

Want to add a bit of sophistication and edge to your outfit? Then a choker is the right jewellery piece to incorporate into your look.Chokers have been around for a few decades now, especially in the predominant 90’s when it was ultra cool to wear chokers to any and every event imaginable.
How to style? Chokers are best worn with a deep neckline, where there is little fabric around the neck to showcase the statement piece.
