Into the night with Christopher Esber

 

As if we all didn’t want this dress after we saw Zendaya wearing it at The People’s Choice awards? I’ve had my eye on the Crystal Tie Cocoon Dress since MBFWA 20. A little sparkle goes a long way with me.

Now let’s talk business upfront, party in the back. This leather blazer features a sleek cinched waist and looped tie detailing from behind. And in the interest of subtle skin, I can’t go past the Ruched Disconnect Shirt Dress in white with an open front centre… It’s the Cher in me.

Lastly, we all need heels to dance in, and the Sarafina crafted in Italy provides an ankle strap and modest heel for those endless nights.

 

Stay relaxed with Matin

 

Everyone needs a good power suit and this tweed double breasted jacket and pleat pants combo are a perfect wardrobe addition. Paired perfectly together or even separately – try the blazer with denim jeans or the pleat pants with a muscle tank for optimum use.

A simple, sweet dress for easy wear both day and night, the Pin Tuck Dress is my pick. I’ve also never said no to a masculine short sleeve shirt, I like to buy in oversize for maximum comfort.

 

It’s never too late to dream with Matteau

 

For the days we can holiday again, swimwear is paramount. My absolute favourites include the One Shoulder Maillot and Plunge Top which is the most flattering for all shapes and sizes – this was my first Matteau purchase from the very first release.

Matteau’s foray into resort wear is also one not to be missed. I love the One Shoulder Dress in chocolate brown and the Wide Leg Trousers in white cotton – to be paired with a bikini top only.

 

Sweet sentiments with Sir

 

As we continue to stay home and work from home, I have been in search of the ideal comforting knitwear pieces. Thus I have found my soft combo in the Cecelia Romper in black to be worn under the Ava High Neck Sweater– totally appropriate to wear when answering the door to accept my latest takeaway order. And it’s no secret that Sir does a good dress, my favourites include the sultry Aries Cut Out and Alena Maxi for the subtle skin we all desire.

 

St. Agni’s earthly delights

 

Rooted in nature from colour and texture. St. Agni’s latest journey into apparel is a welcome one. The Arlo knit Shirt for my preppy days with jeans and the Enzo Knit Pants for when I need an elevated lift from track pants, but don’t want compromise on comfort.

Winter is coming and I always need a good black boot to wear to death with everything and anything. The Clemente Boot adds a touch of Western comfort with a square toe and contrast heel. And I realise this advice is conflicting but I’m impartial to an open-toe shoe all year round, it’s Australia after all. I will wear thongs like the Basik Slide for as long as I can. If the Olsen twins can do it, then so can I.

 

Let’s go back with Paris Georgia

 

I’m all for a flattering neckline and showing off my décolletage. The Heart Singlet with contrast piping is a minimalist love affair with maximum punch. Continuing down the road of a sleek 90's aesthetic, the deconstructed Halter Knit Top and smooth Phoebe Slip are the pieces to be on rotation in my wardrobe for the years to come. I love a good three-in-one such as the Coccoon Trench to be worn as a Jacket, dress or top. Take your pick.

 

Keep moving with The Upside

 

I have a new appreciation for working out now that I can do it regularly from the comfort of my own home. And having the right fit to complete the process adds that touch of extra motivation. I love a clean minimal aesthetic and always gravitate towards black of course. So here are my top sleek work-out wear selections. The Foxy Crop and Spin Short, the Margot Jacket and the ever wishful thinking Foxy Catsuit.
