The Resort 2017 collections just wrapped up at MBFWA (Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Australia) and because I love me some designers down under, I wanted to share with you some new(ish) Aussie designers and how to figure out if they’re right for you / your wardrobe.
Besides the Met Gala and the Oscars, the Cannes Film Festival really makes the trifecta of the most glamorous events of the year. But it’s not always just about that red carpet — celeb’s off-duty looks (especially their airport style…which we just can’t seem to get enough of) are just as exciting as those gowns. Better yet? These are outfits you can actually wear yourself!
There’s something about ballet that fashion folks are just drawn to — maybe it’s the intricate costumes on stage, or the fact that ballerinas are basically models in tutus, perhaps it’s the footwear (although with the decline in popularity of the ballet flat…I doubt it) but regardless of the reason, you really can’t avoid the topic of ballet in fashion. Whether it’s a celeb-crazed workout, a spring gala, or on pointe Instagrams (get it?) let’s dive a little deeper into fashion’s obsession with the dance genre.
How many times have you heard a friend or acquaintance stare at your flat shoes and say, those are cute…but I could never wear flats? Or the one girl who always makes a point to say every time someone comments on her outfit, I only wear heels? This is something I could once very much relate to, but with my shoe closet growing (and with less and less heel height) I wanted to see if you all felt the same.
I’ll be the first to admit that when it comes to layering, I typically keep it very practical (layering for the weather and not necessarily for looks). Every once in a while I’ll get a little creative — a bodysuit with a jumpsuit, two pairs of tights, and a sweater over a dress more than one time — but for the most part, I stick to a top and a jacket…if outerwear is necessary. Regardless of the reason for wearing more clothes, there’s a new(ish) trend that’s making me think twice about the idea of layering…FOR FUN.
