A truly remarkable women once said “Simplicity is the keynote of all true elegance” and I couldn’t agree more.

Owning classic, simple pieces is a must for any women’s wardrobe. Such as the white button down shirt or a black leather jacket, but the number one classic item every women should own is a pair of perfectly fitted jeans.

Recently I have fallen in love with J Brands amazing jeans collection. They have every colour and style you can image. I found this pair at a sample sale in NY and literally wore them everyday during my fashion week castings.

For this look post I paired my JB denims with an oversized knit from Mango, things were starting to get a little chilly just before I left New York, and a pair of classic patent pumps and Audrey sunnies. Everyone was hiding in their apartments and it felt rather cinematic to be alone down on the piers having my morning flat white and croissant as the steam rose from the Manhattan skyline.

Greetings from New York City! I can’t even begin to explain what an amazing place this city is. Within two hours of arriving I had fallen in love.

Hence the reason for being so quiet on the blog the past couple of days. I’ve been walking the streets like crazy taking every little inch in. I’ve been tracking my walking and it’s sitting on 25-30km a day!

Got so much travel stories and tips to share with you all, can’t wait. But for now here’s a look post we shot before we left South Africa.

Cape Town looks like it’s been freezing and one of the best things to wear when it’s cold is a chunky knit. I suggest Country Road, they have a rather large knitwear collection that I am absolutely gaga for. I can’t walk into CR without buying a new knit.

Instead of wearing a beanie this Winter try teaming your outfit with a veldt hat like below.

Office Elegance

Dressing your way to success is no lie. `

I remember when I first started modelling I was told by one of my European agencies that I would have to go out and purchase myself a $2000 dollar handbag if I was to be taken seriously within the industry, clients would automatically sit up and take notice with a Prada or Louis Vuitton on my arm.

In a business world that is predominately male orientated dressing the part has never been more important. Not only does it A.) Make people take you more seriously but B.) It makes you take yourself more seriously.

Dressing the part is not about how you end up ‘looking” but how it makes you “feel”. Sometimes it can be the smallest thing, say a watch or a set of matching underwear that makes you feel fantastic and confident. If we dress confidently we automatically feel confident.

Here’s some tips for dressing for the office:

  • Mix expensive pieces with bargain pieces. Don’t stress about wearing a top to toe designer look.
  • When you try something on picture yourself wearing it at work. Does it make you feel confident?
  • If in doubt? Wear black! My fav colour. No matter how cheap the item is, it always looks expensive. It’s classic and elegant. Plus if you wear it three days a week no one would really notice.
  • Google or flip through magazines to find some inspo before heading to the shops. This way you have a strong, clear idea of what you want.
  • Update your wardrobe every season by buying two or three extra pieces. Then mix it up with your old pieces to save money.

Remember “fashion is what you buy… style is how you wear it”
