Hello lovelies! Hope you had a wonderful long weekend and are enjoying your week so far! I must admit I'm going through some serious chocolate withdrawals, but I’ll survive, you don’t need to worry about me (although, any unwanted chocolate will be gratefully received)!
This week, seeing as it is Wellington Fashion Week, let’s talk about fashion. Now, Winter IS coming. It might not seem like it, but it will eventually get cold, and we should look forward to that. Snuggly slimline jumpers, deep Autumnal oranges, navies and jade greens, woolen coats and little red rain capes; Winter fashion is sensible and very cool, in fact, very Wellington. Black, the most Wellington of shades, need not be boring. Black pants need not be unflattering. To prove it, check out these beauties, and some Ways To Wear them.
Highnoontea’s Ada Pant. Gorgeous. Woolen, black, classic, and very flattering. Highnoontea is stamping its mark on the New Zealand fashion industry with a strong identity of directional tailored comfort, and you can see why. Designer Sheryl White sources inspiration from a love of music, film, literature and vintage clothing. These Bauhaus inspired pants are the perfect foundation for a tailored yet comfort driven look, check out these two looks for some inspiration:
Look One is a smart yet comfortable look for a day spent in town, a bit of time at work, with a few errands to run and a coffee or two thrown in. A pop of colour with the lovely red Norma wallet, which fits in everything you need for the day. A simple necklace completes this understated look. (Highnoontea Ada Pant and Gerhard Top, Status Anxiety Norma Wallet, Figs & Ginger Necklace.)
Look Two is your “going out for drinks with the girls” look. Comfortable, a little bit cute and a little bit sexy. The deep orange sheer shirt with an adorable owl print is perfect for Autumn and works beautifully with a long statement necklace. The mint green nail polish clashes with the orange and pulls this look together. Sling the Calyx bag across your body to add a little more edge to your look and you’ll keep ‘em guessing. (Highnoontea Ada Pant, Arielle Mermin Sweet Virginia Top, Kate of Arcadia Calyx Bag, MFP Leave Your Love Tonight Necklace)
I hope these looks get you inspired and feeling a little more excited for Winter!
