Pseudo Jumpsuit

Another summer scorcher today meant a loose floaty outfit was essential for survival. Every time I wear this combo, people comment on my ‘jumpsuit’. It’s actually not a jumpsuit at all! The wide leg pants are high-waisted and have a self sash/bow. The frill front silk cami adds welcome volume to the bust-line and is loosely tucked in to create an ‘all in one’ look. Tip: For contrast and to ‘break up’ the black, as well as the added bonus of sun protection, throw on a baggy cardi. This stripy cotton cardi is from the Myer Miss Shop. Drape low for that effortless cafe style or pull up higher when out in the sun.

Regular client Chris is an engineer. He has been working on mine sites for the past few years and has just transferred to a city job. Perfect time to renovate the work wardrobe! Chris’ office has a relaxed dress code, so he wanted the basic essentials just to get started. He is pictured above in polished, French navy, Sportscraft chinos. They’re a relaxed fit and work well with this Country Road, Egyptian Cotton, checked shirt. Slip on shoes by Jeff Banks and belt by Sportscraft.

Chris is now set to begin his new job. His shirt choices above are from Marcs, Dom Bagnato, Politix and Country Road. They vary in colour and style. Two pairs of chinos and a pair of Pierre Cardin, flat front trousers mean that Chris can mix and match easily to create different looks. Tip: First impressions really do count. Before starting a new job, take the time to freshen up your look, as you will feel more confident and look stylish. 

Ever considered using a steamer on your clothes instead of ironing? It’s zippy fast, works a treat and turns a painful chore into pleasure. The Myer Politix staff use this particular Conair Steamer available at Myer. There are also various other types, ranging in price from $100-$175. Good investment.
