The Tasteful Cutaway Dress

A tasteful cutaway dress, does such a thing exist? Lucky one of my favourite Australian labels, Seduce, knows how to craft a sophisticated number that shows off some skin.

I’m shrugging off winter and barring the shoulders in this sexy, cutaway dress from Seduce. True, this isn’t something I’m overly used to – showing skin that is, but every now and then a girl has to take a few fashionable risks, let her hair down and frock up for a fabulous night out.

Just as it’s name suggests, this is an enchanting little number, featuring a seductive keyhole neckline and cutout shoulder detail. With a relaxed fit and a cinched waist, the shimmering semi sheer fabric drapes freely over the body, creating a flattering, feminine shape.

Styled with a fierce new pair of Wittner heels and some rose gold jewels, I’m ready for a cocktail or two with the girls, or a late night bite with bae. Where would you wear this fancy frock? Let me know below!

Cue the madness of a deranged tea party and a croquet game with the queen, I’m ready to travel down the rabbit hole to join Alice and her kooky gang, in this divine Disney collection Lost In Wonderland by Seduce x Disney. Coinciding with Tim Burton’s theatrical sequel, Alice Through The Looking Glass, the exquisite collection paints a beautiful and familiar story of the curious blonde girl who finds herself in a magical world, chasing a white rabbit.

It’s a magical pairing, one that I have been very excited for since the memo appeared mysteriously on the Seduce Insta back in May. Captured by the talented Margaret Zhang, the campaign itself is hauntingly beautiful featuring opulent spaces, a decadent tea party setting and dreamy florals. See the campaign lookbook here.

As for the garments, the collection features delicate fabrics, floating silhouettes and ornate prints, all inspired by the Disney original. The very piece I’m wearing features a charming, whimsical print of the familiar characters; the talking roses, the cards, The White Rabbit, Cheshire Cat and Alice, which contrasts delicately against the ‘Alice Blue’ shade of the gown. It’s name is fitting, as I find myself Curiouser & Curiouser about the adventure I’m about to begin!

We experienced our first of the chilly temps in Brisbane late last week, and I for one couldn’t be more excited! To celebrate, I’m bringing out the layers, starting with the must have item of the season: a Caramel Vest. Worn oh so casually with a pair of boyfriend jeans, or effortlessly thrown over a tunic, I’m ready to reveal my little tips and tricks to styling this staple, featuring new season Seduce.

1. Nothing contrasts against this colour, like a clean black canvas. Such a rich, pigmented colour should only be emphasised by a strong base colour – that’s why I turn to classic black.

2. Booties are always a great choice. No Autumn outfit is complete without a cheeky pair of ankle boots, so keep a peeper out for a versatile pair, like these black, block heeled babies.

3. Ties are optional. What I love about this particular vest is the optional tie, which completely changes the look of this piece. Wear open for a relaxed, casual vibe, or create a loose bow for a more polished, refined look.

4. Explore length. A 3/4 vest is a great way to explore different lengths, and emphasis clean lines. I find a shorter hemline helps to create the look of longer pins, which is a definite advantage for this 5 ft 2 fashionista.

I would love to hear how you would style this little number in the comments below! I’de also love for you to subscribe (via the menu) to my fortnightly style guide, for little tips and tricks, industry trends and sneaky previews to future posts! You know you want to…

Styling an all white outfit certainly sounds like an easy concept, would you agree? Yet, more often than not it can come across too stark, too coordinated and too (for lack of a better word) boring! Piece by piece, I’m adding more white garments to mix and match with to form a seriously sophisticated ensemble. Presenting my tips and tricks to styling an on point, all white getup.

1. Choose interesting silhouettes. The high neckline of this Talulah Shift Dress, instantly grabs the eye, creating a bold and sophisticated visual statement. I’ve also contrasted the floaty silhouette of this shift with a streamline blazer to create clean lines and balanced structure.

2. Your lip colour is everything! You may be working with neutrals, but there’s no better opportunity to inject some colour with a bold pout. I recommend something flirty and feminine, like this pinky peach hue, Gerard Cosmetics Ballet Slipper.

3. Sparkle with two tone accessories. Silver is probably the go-to metal when working with white, but a splash of gold adds some much needed warmth and vibrancy to an all white outfit.

4. Don’t be afraid to add black. Break up tonal dressing with some statement black accessories. Given that black comes from the same neutral colour palette, it won’t look out of place. I’m teaming my all white outfit with a basic black heel and matching cross body bag for a little extra edge.

Fashionista’s I would love to hear your tips and tricks for styling an all white outfit, so leave your thoughts below!
