Women and fashion, they have been tied together for generations; making statements, careers, headlines and the big screen. This is my take on the empowering women and the fashion they wear…
Hello, hello, hello,
For one; I will start by apologizing for the 1 month hiatus from the wardrobe, and alas it was because of a school trip to the top end of Australia, and yes it was amazing and very hot. Yet when returning to the ever so exciting city of Canberra, I found the whether to be not quite so accommodating, after a couple of days of hibernating and acclimatizing, I headed out into the town and found that I needed to break out my winter gear again. Disappointing this may be; I found reviewing the layer technique was quite challenging, especially after 2 weeks of shorts and singlets for reasons none other then the ability to actually move.
The layer technique has been around for years and has served humanity very well. Putting together an outfit that is to suit the whether can be a challenge, especially in Canberra, we all no that one minute its a fine 18 degrees and the next it 7 and raining. When I decide that I will leave my nice warm house it usually takes me about a billion outfit changes and switches before I get it right, These outfits can range from a jumper with a pair of shorts or maybe some jeans and a singlet, these mix and match whether outfits both combat the whether and the trends and will hopefully set you up with for the change in whether as we head into spring.

So over the past few months there has been a big increase in the about of cloths that have been tailored to fit the new trend of colour blocking. Though there is a fine line where people try to over compensate in the colour department, People can go over board and end up putting too many similar colours together in one outfit and just end up ruining it.
You have to be careful when the blocking includes patterns because going over board on that will definitely not help. When Colour Blocking think about how the over all outfit will look just because you’re using lots of different colours doesn’t mean you shouldn’t think about how all the different colours are going to contrast with each other.
Even when composing your outfit remember the different styles of cloths that you’re going to be wearing for example don’t wear baggy pants with a baggy top even if your choice of colours are incredible.
Also guys are no exception to colour block sure you don’t have to be as eccentric as girls are with colours, I mean we might look good in a bright purple pendulum top but you guys not so much, yet think about the subtle colous that you can mix together like a army green military style jacket and a pair of dark jeans are great as long as you don’t wear a dark shirt. Wear something that will stand out but not in an overly obvious way just a white Tee with a print on will do.
And with shoes don’t always think that just because your colour blocking on your outfit doesn’t mean you have to with your accessories, because a slight miss calculation with the colours can end disastrously, the wrong shades of pink and your screwed. This also applies that of you have some obviously bright accessories don’t put it with an overly bright outfit, sometimes a bright bag with a neutral tone outfit will do wonders.
