It’s been a while since I delivered a label I love and this week it’s a brand that’s affordable, sophisticated and oh so sheike (chic).
Australian born label Sheike, was founded in 1979 and now has 17 flagship stores across New South Wales and an online fashion hub where customers both nationally and internationally can shop their favourite looks.
I recently collaborated with the lovely team at Sheike and will be delivering outfits over the coming weeks fresh from their autumn 2014 collection, so stay tuned. I could literally base my entire wardrobe around this season’s items from Sheike as they tick all the boxes – including basics, simplistic items with fine detail, staples and ‘wow’ pieces. The beauty about Sheike is the pieces are perfect to take your look from day to night, from the office to date night or drinks with the girls. They ooze sophistication, allowing you to still play around with a sense of sexiness, sensuality and femininity which is exactly the style of clothing I opt for my day to day work, life balance dress code.
One of my favourite trends of the season (in fact it’s hung around for a few seasons now) is monochrome. The magic of monochrome has erupted into madness and front row attendees at fashion week and fashionistas alike have adopted the classic trend in droves. As have I. Believe it or not, despite the fact I wear a lot colour, this particular look from Sheike is spot on Livvy May style. Black/white, cat eye shades and a red lip, it’s classic and very city chic and in fact I’m very much a city girl. As a girl growing up in Noosa, I was constantly catching the train to Brisbane so I could swan around in heels and Jackie O like frames, as the city was always where I felt most at home. The hustle and bustle, the clean lines, sharp edges and angular reference points were things I admired most and in fact this rings true in this very outfit. Classic white on black, turtleneck with structured hem, textured pants and heels from Zu with the slightest element of edge in the bold gold zipper detailing. Monochrome is like a sophisticated, well-structured city and it’s held my ‘curiocity’ for quite some time now.
So I’d love to know what trends you’re crushing on this season? X x
