Over tapered trousers 


Pairing with tailoring will help alleviate this otherwise formal look. Play with colours and styles to lessen the work-wear impact. We think its a perfect replacement of the classic blazer.

Over a floral dress 


Tone down overly feminine prints with this relaxed 90’s street staple. Beginners start with more fitted styles as pairing oversized fits teamed with midi-length dresses can create proportional disarray.

layered with a kimono


Team with a new season kimono to offer a middle-ground to dressed up looks. Tuck into your denim or layer over a midi skirt to complete this sleek silhouette. An added bonus of warmth should be recognised here, as let’s face it kimonos are chilly.

Under a micro dress 


As the rule of thumb goes if you are showing legs cover your chest and vice versa. This season made way for an updated take of covering your modesty by donning the teen classic underneath a micro mini.  Play with sloganed versions to inject an element of fun to an otherwise sophisticated vibe.

Over denim


This overtly casual pairing of fabrics always goes hand in hand, but this season think differently. Opt for a shorter length denim skirt to elevate and balance the oversized appearance. Style with heeled boots or a kitten heel to avoid a casual overkill.
