Dawn dresses up a simple jeans and white tee outfit with a Modern Classic tailored blazer. She’s tucked the tee into cropped skinny jeans, which lengthens the leg line. The distressing on the jeans casualizes the look but this is juxtaposed by the blazer and dressy black bag. Our blogger adds a whimsical and unexpected touch by sporting eye-catching tufted slippers with no-slip soles as outdoor footwear. The tiger design brings playful colour into the mix, and echoes the shiny gold buttons on the blazer. The gold hardware on the bag does the same. A delicate gold pendant and oversized sunnies finish off this polished casual look.

For this polished workwear look, Dawn has combined an ivory silky V-neck cami with on-trend high-rise Bermuda shorts. Their rich earthy paprika colour pairs beautifully with the ivory and bone colour palette. As a topper she’s added a fluid-fit thigh-length blazer with structured shoulder line. The blazer has a subtle sheen to it that, together with the cami, creates chic visual interest. The bone colour doesn’t match but works splendidly with the ivory, and both are cleverly repeated in Dawn’s dressy loafers. The square toe is on-trend and the oversized buckle makes them into a statement piece. A large clutch in the same colour family, lariat necklace and big sunnies complete the outfit.

The elegant knee-length dress is the star of the show here with its gorgeous blue and black irregular dotted pattern and luxe silk fabric. The V-neckline is perfect for showcasing a chain-link pendant necklace. The ruffle detail at the sleeves and flowy silhouette add movement and flair. Dawn added a black belt with silver buckle that accentuates the waistline, and a pair of dressy tall boots in texture-rich black croc embossed leather. The pointy toe and V-dip are subtle ways to lengthen the leg line. Our blogger’s black bag, nail polish, and sunglasses all match the blue and black colour scheme.

This is a wonderful example of Angie’s Puffer Vest Outfit Formula. Dawn has semi-tucked a roomy cream turtleneck sweater into on-trend high-rise skinny jeans. The jeans are tucked into a stunning pair of refined espresso tube shaft boots. The stiletto heel adds height while the snake-embossed leather creates textural interest. The knee-length puffer vest adds a cosy second layer up top and draws the eye up and down with its long silhouette. The large hood and turtleneck frame Dawn’s face and wavy hair beautifully, no jewellery required.

Jumpsuits are one of Dawn’s favourite garments, and this oatmeal version forms the base for an all-neutrals Sporty Luxe look. The fluid fit, surplice V-neck, drawstring waist, and cuffed ankle detail add lots of structure, while the soft modal fabrication screams cosy comfort. The open-front wool-blend coat is a slightly darker shade of oatmeal. The shawl collar and large patch pockets are a mix of dressy and casual. Trendy white sneakers match the sporty vibe perfectly. Dawn completes the look with hoop earrings, a silver pendant and her trusted statement sunnies.

A pair of flared trousers at the new shorter full length takes centre stage in this dressy elegant look. Our blogger has paired the happy red trousers with a dainty print blouse. The balloon sleeves add volume that balances out the volume of the pants. A cream belt accentuates the waist and adds structure. Refined flat white mules with gold bit detail bookend Dawn’s hair and match the blouse. The white is picked up again in the quilt stitched bag with antique finished hardware and Dawn’s nail polish.
