I’m back to shopping with clients, which feels really good. I’ve missed it! In store colour palettes are varied right now. Lots of on-trend brights, Atlantic blues, mid-tones, pastels and greyed pastels, but plenty of earth tones and neutrals too. 

On to some of the items that were winners on my clients this week.

  • Sanctuary All Day Long Sweater: Super soft, cute, graphic and quite short. Feels lovely against the skin. It's excellent on a shorter waist and/or torso. It's also a good match with skirts.
  • Sanctuary Part-Time Lover Single Cold Shoulder T-Shirt: If you enjoy wearing a black tee, you might like something like this to change things up. Often clients look at the style on the hanger, and are dubious about the silhouette. And when they fit on the tee, they are pleasantly surprised.
  • Sanctuary Rebel Crop Stretch Cotton Pants: These fit a range of body types, and are quite short. The mid rise is comfy and flattering. Nice room on the thighs. Works well on petites.
  • KUT from the Kloth Helena Denim Jacket: An excellent essential denim jacket that is soft and a little stretchy for extra comfort.
  • Citizens of Humanity Kayla Long Sleeve Button-Up Shirt: If you like wearing crisp, big and boxy statement shirts, try this one. It has an architectural cut on the sleeves which is achieved with a set of cleverly placed buttons and button holes. The light blue is saturated and won't wash you out.
  • RAILS Women's Hunter Plaid Button-Up Shirt: If you like wearing seafoam blues and greens and plaid shirts, check this out. It's VERY soft and cosy. Looks good with olive bottoms too.
  • Sanctuary Daybreak Camo Print Linen & Cotton Blend Trucker Jacket: A short camouflage jacket with an architectural silhouette made of natural fibres. Check out the fun gathers at the back.
  • Nic + Zoe Mosaic Sunrise Sweater: If you like to wear lightweight V-neck sweaters, keep this one on your radar. They've layered it over a shirt, but it looks great worn on its own. Soft and cosy. A nice mix of earth tones and brights.
  • AllSaints Women's Bernie Kosumoso Satin Button-Up Shirt: The floral placement of this blouse is interesting and quite dramatic. Fab with black, white, or grey bottoms.
  • L'AGENCE Dani Silk Charmeuse Blouse: Super pretty, luxe, and chic. Elegantly fluid. Comes in olive.
  • Chaus Floral Surplice Neck Faux Wrap Midi Dress: This is for navy and earth tone lovers who enjoy wearing a modern classic faux wrap dress. The length is longer than usual, and the pattern has interesting blue flowers.
  • KUT from the Kloth Amy Stretch Crop Skinny Jeans: These have worked on a range of body types. They are mid-rise, mould to the shape of your body without too much cling, and are thick and substantial. Size down.
  • MOTHER The Hustler High Waist Fray Hem Ankle Bootcut Jeans (Fairest of them All) | Nordstrom: These are thick and substantial, and can work well on a curvier bottom half. They look as good on a straighter body type.
  • Pistil Tammy High Waist Trousers: These are AMAZING on those who have a curvy long rise. They don't need to taper at the ankle like you see in the stock photo because you can adjust the buttoned tabs at the ankle and wear them wider. Comes in olive and grey.
  • GOOD AMERICAN Good Straight Raw Hem Straight Leg Jeans: These have worked well on a curvier body type. The comments suggest that they are see-through, but I did not get that impression when I saw them on my client. Size up if you'd prefer a less tight fit.
  • COS Pleated Barrel-leg Chinos: I loved these pants, but returned them because the crotch point was too dropped. I like to wear dropped crotch bottoms, but am after a more regular fit rise for my next pair of navy pants. It's very lightweight, has a half elastic back, and rocks a Japanese avant-garde vibe.
  • Sam Edelman Double Breasted Nylon Trench Coat: This 100% nylon trench, machine-washable topper is worth a look if you like to wear lilac. The length is versatile and the colour is unique. Might run a little big, but remember to wear the correct layers underneath when you assess the fit.
  • RAILS Quincy Cutout Sweatshirt: This looked spectacular on a short-waisted client, and comes in olive. You can wear a strapless bra, or a showcase a decorative bra strap.
  • MOTHER The Tomcat Chew Ripped Crop High Waist Jeans: These jeans are a gorgeous sour yellow, that is more saturated in person. Thick, substantial, and fits with a straighter cut on a longer rise.
  • PAIGE Katharina Sleeveless Silk Chiffon Dress: I gasped with delight when I saw this dress on one of my curvy clients. The fit and vibe are awesome, and the fabric soft, drapey, and gorgeous. The V-neckline is very flattering on a larger bust, and the broad waist elastic provides a lot of structure. It's not as frilly as it seems on the hanger. Lots of room and movement on the bottom half.
  • Alice + Olivia Jacqueline Floral Print Trumpet Skirt: If you like mid-tone blue trumpet skirts that are fitted up top and flare out with romantic flounce further down, keep this one on your radar. It is beautiful in motion.
  • Ted Baker London Penny Gingham Frill Scarf: I love this gingham wrap and scarf hybrid. The fabric is beautifully beachy, crease-resistant, soft, and feels wonderful against the skin. If it came in navy and white, it would be mine.
  • Ron White Barbra Ankle Strap Sandal: A very pretty and refined sandal that works well on wider feet. If your pinky toe gets caught in strappy sandals, this style is the way to go. Comes in black.
  • M&S Collection Linen Rich Gingham Square Neck Midi Dress: Smocking and gingham are on-trend, and I fell in love with this rami-viscose NAVY natural fibre, awfully pretty dress. The smocking is not constricting. It's super soft, drapey, extremely comfy, and is a perfect hot-weather frock for my style. Alluring, yet covered. I love the '70s integrity of it, and can't wait to wear it.
  • M&S Collection Linen Rich Striped Midi Shirt Dress: A natural fibre linen-viscose shirt dress with a classic and crisp appeal. It does not feel scratchy. The belt is optional and looks good without. The light blue is saturated and flattering. The skirt portion does not flare, but it's roomy, and HAS POCKETS. I can comfortably walk fast in this dress with doggies in tow. I love it, and have it.
  • Donald J Pliner Women's Loafer: Navy Patent Wedge Loafer Fabness. Beautifully made, quite comfy, and chunky in a refined way. Comes in black.
  • FRAME Crop Denim Trucker Jacket: I LOVED this oversized short denim jacket. The sleeves are artistically created, so click the link to check out their back seam and ruching detailing. They also weren't as long in person as you see in the stock photo. I passed because the silver buttons are too big and cool-toned for someone who prefers gold as a metal. I hope to enjoy it on one of you!
