Accordion

Wearing: Magdelena Velevska skirt, Aqua dress, Asos clutch, Zu heels, NARS Jungle Red lipstick. I first spotted this work of art by Magdelena Valevska back during her show at RAFW earlier this year, and from the moment these asymmetrically cut knife pleats came down the runway she raised the bar not only for pleats, but for skirts altogether. How can something so architecturally blunt still be light and flowing? I’ve paired it over this backless bodycon dress, while the indented cut at the front frames together with the skirt perfectly.  Photos by Nicole Cooper

Wearing: Zimmermann dress, Agent 99 top, Lee shorts, Zu heels, Michael Kors watch. It occurred to me a few days ago that I don’t own any denim shorts. Coming in to Australia’s summer, this needs to be corrected asap. I have tried to steer clear of them for how they are often worn- far too short, and with a ‘crop top’, which is extremely unflattering on anyone. After borrowing my friends shorts (Thanks Mel…) I’ve tried to update the white singlet and denim short combo with a bit of class, adding these bow tied heels and silk cape that is actually an undone maxi wrap dress. Versatility that looks liquid with a breeze. Photos by Nicole Cooper

Splice

Wearing: Magdelena Valevska top, Fleur Wood shorts, Michael Kors watch, Jeffrey Campbell wedges, Asos rings, clutch from markets. My wardrobe interpretation of Sydney’s confusing weather at the moment is “long and short”, by having to wear a long top and short bottoms or vice versa. I’m obsessed with the versatility of structured tops and fell in love with this neon pink one by Magdelena Velevska. I usually stay well clear of pink and neons in general as it does crazy things to my hair, but it feels so refreshing and high hoped for summer by being so bold and bright. Made wearable by pairing with the amazing cut out lace detail of these shorts. Photos by Nicole Cooper

I cannot believe how fast this year has gone. This time last year I was coming home from Paris to my place in London, preparing for Christmas and the depths of winter. Crazy to think how much has happened since then, but in the wink of an eye.
