Winter has finally arrived in Perth, although it’s hard to really call it Winter when we are experiencing similar temperatures to Ireland’s Summer. This makes it the perfect season (and city) for this cutaway,sleeveless knit from one of my favourite Australian labels, Sass and Bide. With its daring racer style cut and flared hem,it is a modern twist on the classic Aran sweater. I chose to pair it with my faux leather trousers and printed brogues, for an edgy day look.
This week’s fashion video is a look back at the highlights from the Fall 2015 collections. With the temperatures beginning to drop, here in Australia, I have been yearning more and more for the coziness of soft cashmere and the weight of a wool coat. This quick recap of the designer’s collections didn’t point to any particular trends but rather was a celebration of individual style and styling.
These days we can be inspired by so many elements other than just the designer’s collection. A quick jump on instagram or pinterest offers us a whole new world to explore with people posting images of what they are wearing on a daily basis, along with their individual inspirations.
So the main trend for fashion this Fall 2015…is you!
All black was the mood of this look, shot in Perth city. When doing a single colour look, I always try to have one piece with a little bit of texture and the shoes usually become the feature piece. These CUE trousers have a jacquard finish in a super comfy, stretchy fabric. They are luxurious to touch and have that high-fashion finish that is quintessentially CUE. Paired with this georgette shirt, I was feeling a little bit Mod, so my new Wittner brogues were the perfect masculine/feminine mix to keep the look edgy.
An afternoon on Rottnest Island calls for a relaxed and carefree style that compliments salty beach hair and sun-kissed skin. The only mode of transport, for discovering those hidden beaches, is a bicycle, so comfort is essential. My swim-suit is from the Missoni for Target collection and I was going for a fifties/lolita vibe with my cat-eye sunglasses and gingham shorts. I chose to go for a basic, white linen shirt, tied in a knot in the front, paired with the shorts for day and some slouchy printed pants for the afternoon. I added my pony-hair espadrilles to give the look a fashion kick.
If you follow me on Instagram (@huntinginheels), you will have seen the recent post of my new metallic tuxedo jacket, from CUE. This limited edition jacket is one of my favourite pieces in their new FW15 collection. The sparkly fabric is soft to the touch, crafted from the most luxurious fabric, imported from Italy. The tailoring is impeccable and I am just as excited to wear it to work as I am to wear it on a night out.
I am pairing mine with a black sheer shirt and some skinny embossed black pants, both from CUE. This jacket also works well with some slouchy black pants, as the structure of the jacket adds instant polish to any look.
70’s without the cheesy disco element, Rodarte’s FW15 collection revived the sequin and reworked Olivia Newton-John’s Grease trousers, all in a modern way. The look was modest and elegant in ways, but with daring sheer fabrics and form-fitting silouhettes.

A relaxing Sunday in Fremantle called for some track pants and an easy tee, but with the addition of a pair of brightly coloured heels to keep the look less T.V. dinner and more fashion-forward.
We checked out the renowned Bread in Common in Freo and I would highly recommend stopping by to stuff your face with their imported cheeses and mouth-watering prosciutto. Top it off with a full-bodied red for full Sunday satisfaction.
