If you look to the right sidebar, you’ll notice a shiny new button displayed, advertising that I am an official blogger of DFO- an accomplishment I am very proud of! As a newly appointed blogger ambassador, I will be completing a monthly style challenge at both DFO Jindalee and DFO Brisbane for the next three months….Shopping, styling and more shopping, otherwise my idea of a dream job!

For the month of April, my style challenge for DFO Jindalee was to create a transitional Autumn/Winter look with an international influence. With a mid semester break filled with Gossip Girl reruns, I decided to introduce a little NYC prep to my Autumn/Winter wardrobe, highlighting a plaid inspired print from Cue.

Fall (Autumn) Styling: As the temperature in the Autumn is still relatively warm, this dress is perfect as a statement piece. Teamed with an edgy ankle boot (like my Jo Mercer Sublime Booties), a bold lip colour such as this Maybelline orange hue and an embellished cuff, this look is both effortless and chic, ideal for a cute brunch date.

Marcs Trench (similar style here), Louis Vuitton Concorde Handbag, Jo Mercer Alexandra Patent Boot.

Winter Styling: From statement status, to a solid foundation, this structured dress definitely encourages layering to accommodate a change in temperature. Highlighting the colours seen in the print, I have selected a mulberry hue trench to enhance the warmth in the colour palette. The neutral print of my Louis Vuitton monogram handbag embraces a little print clash, without detracting from the outfit. A final touch of multi texture seen in the patent boots, adds polish to the look.

Transitional pieces certainly make a valuable resource in any wardrobe- you just have to experiment with their versatility! Which look do you prefer?
