Uptown Girl

Inspiration Starts Here!

This season is not about being someone else but creating your own signature look, be it bold lips, bright eyes or only for the brave- no make-up. In this post I will show you how to recreate the winter white trend and key products to invest in. Get creative and strategic it’s time to meet the new you.


The Kookai Boulevard Dress (available at kookai.com.au & in store) has to be my IT piece of the season and newest edition to my wardrobe. Pretty enough for evening, practical enough for day there really isn’t anything more you could ask for me in a dress……(ok maybe a matching jacket would be nice). Crafted from a luxurious fabric, this dress falls beautifully on the body providing enough structure for a polished look yet playful and feminine with multiple gathers.


When choosing how to style the dress take into consideration factors such as occasion, weather, and accessories. Believe me when I say there are so many directions you can take this dress and don’t underestimate the power of accessories, as they will be the the perfect complimentary partner to this one of a kind dress.


I decided to make the focal point of my accessories on my arms rather than interfering with the carefully structured  neckline of the dress. I opted for to wear a chunky Mimco cuff on right hand and a more delicate leather wristlet on the left, this way there is enough balance to my accessories without being overpowering. For an even more put-together look opt for a bright nail polish and bold lip this way, no one will question your styling skills!


The standout feature of this dress is it’s relentless versatility, so when transitioning to the cooler months start by teaming a lightweight scarf with the dress and add a cardigan for extra warmth. Be creative as you like when it comes to shoes, opt for a pair of ankle boots for instant sophistication or be bold a in a sky-high pair of pumps.


Complete the look by wearing a camel fedora, trust me when I say this bold, bright accessory is a guaranteed conversation starter. With so many variations of fedoras available try as many on as possible to find the one that suits your face best, in order to maintain an ease and effortless feel to the look. I chose to stay with the lighter colours. A fedora is my winter-go-to accessory because of the instant impact it has on any outfit.
