club monaco gideon trench
One thing I’ve always enjoyed in getting dressed is the creativity that it can allow. I’ve long loved the process of making more out of my pieces by trying to style them different, slightly unconventional ways; this can obviously make for a hit or (more often) a miss, but sometimes an unexpected surprise happens. This ‘dress’ that I’m wearing was created with a little proportion play by layering a not-quite-long-enough blouse over a pencil skirt, and the result is something that I’m planning on wearing all summer long. What are some of your favourite styling tricks?

Easy dress, denim vest. If there ever was a formula for effortless summer dressing, I’m pretty sure this would be it. Lately, I’ve been getting rid of most of the more form-fitting frocks in my closet and keeping everything with more give. Aside from being more comfortable, I like that a looser, more relaxed piece can easily be dressed up or down to suit a variety of occasions. This one, for instance, would be just as great for a wedding (when paired with the right accessories) as it would be for a summer weekend in the city, making it ideal for stretching your wardrobe. Happy Friday!
