Hello, my name is Elise and I’m a Perth stylist. I’m also a stay-at-home mum to two beautiful daughters Chloé (3) and Olivia (1). In my spare time, (as small as it may be), I’m fortunate to be able to pursue my passion of styling and fashion writing.
For busy women and mums, I understand how difficult it can be to put an outfit together for a special event or everyday life, whilst juggling other priorities. However with a bit of thought and planning into your wardrobe choices, and inspiration with a few simple style tips, your confidence will be booming when you know just how easy, effortless chic can be.
Below are five of my favourite looks for everyday life, mixing a classic style with a bit of edge. I love finding one-off statement, edgy pieces that can take an outfit to another level. My overall style advice is to keep it simple, pick one theme and never over accessorise.
1. Sportsluxe: Everyday Errands
Thank God for the ‘kicks’ and ‘sportsluxe’ trends, they’re perfect for running around with children or the quick dash to the shops. And the ‘sneaker / trackies’ look can be styled up so well with the addition of a leather or faux leather jacket.
2. Effortless: Office Sophisticate
A crisp white shirt, pencil skirt, trench coat and pumps belong together in a perfect match. Simply playing with textures, details and colours and adding one statement accessory can take this look to a new trend-of-the-moment level.
3. Relaxed: Weekender
Weekends can be breezy with a maxi skirt, tee, opened denim shirt tied up on the side and a pop of animal print flats. Why not mix up this look with wide-leg culottes that are super comfortable and very current right now.
4. Edgy glam: Date Night
A busy life means making the time to dress up and feel great once in a while. A date night is the perfect excuse don’t you think? A romantic night calls for distressed denim styled up with a glam piece of jewellery, simple blouse, lace lingerie and killer heels.
5. Tuxedo: Party Princess
On the occasion where you have an event to attend, the classic jumpsuit is a wardrobe must-have. Its structure helps to slim and lengthen. Glam it up with killer ankle wrapped heels, a great clutch and ear cuff. Finish off with a relaxed tuxedo blazer and you’re good to go. A pop of red lipstick will take this look to style perfection.
Happy everyday styling lovelies!
