When I think back to the days I used to walk home from work in my suit and sneakers, I never looked anywhere near as chic as Victoria Beckham does in her trousers and sneakers. (below)

I used to put my trainers on in the office (they were the same ones I wore to pump and spinning classes at the gym) and walk as fast as I could out of the CBD in the hope I wouldn’t bump into anyone I knew.

Back then trainers were really just for that – training – and wearing them for anything but exercise was seen as being a bit daggy.  (Think Jerry Seinfeld in his jeans and runners) But now, wearing a pair of smart sneakers is fashionable.

If you’re thinking about adding a new comfy casual, runaround shoe for winter, consider a pair of white (Yes white for winter) sneakers.

They’ll add instant freshness to your look and work with all those stylish colors you no doubt have in your wardrobe.  (ie navy, grey, khaki, black, white and camel)

Here are some ideas for how you could wear white sneakers in winter..

Often the smallest adjustment, can make the biggest difference.

(Remember I showed you the impact tucking in can have here.)

There are several reasons rolling up your sleeves can have a positive effect on your overall look – one being that it can visually make your legs appear longer.

(I’ll let you study the picture and see if you can figure out the others.)

Of course it’s also a benefit if your sleeves are too long – as demonstrated in the picture on the left.

In case you missed it, I also talked about rolling up sleeves here and here.

..and here’s another tip for lengthening the legs.

How To Not Look Like A Waiter Wearing Black And White

18 Apr

Black and white

These images from a recent Vogue Paris really caught my eye.

While I enjoy wearing black and white (I talked about it back here, remember?) I had lost sight of just how striking the combination can be.

The photos also reminded me of a few things I’ve had on my shopping wishlist for a while – black Ray-Ban Wayfarers, a white lace top, a black bomber jacket and white sneakers – that I should start hunting down, because of the impact they’d each have on my wardrobe.

I know some of you are nervous about wearing black and white together for fear of looking like a waiter or a penguin, but I think if you take these photos for inspiration, that won’t happen.

Just like wearing all black, it’s about how you wear it.

Consider the texture of the fabrics, the shapes of the garments and the interesting and unique accompanying accessories. (The decoration)

It’s not just about wearing any old white top with black bottoms.

That’s just boring.

Can you come up with some interesting outfit combinations using existing black and white pieces from your wardrobe? If not, what could you add to your wardrobe to give you more options?

Something I See Often When I’m Shopping With Clients

11 Apr

men shopping

I think there should be a “Gentleman’s Lounge” in department stores and shopping centres, where bored men can go and watch the footy/races/read, etc…and sit and wait for their partners while they’re shopping for clothes.

I’m often amused when I see men (and I see it all the time) walking 5 feet behind, patiently sitting and waiting or being asked “What do you think?”….all with a very blank, completely uninterested/tortured expression on their face. It always makes me laugh.

So I think this Instagram feed “Miserable Men – Men that went shopping” is hilarious.

Look familiar?
