How to style the corset belt trend

jessie-khoo-fashion-and-sounds jessie-khoo-fashion-and-sounds Oversized Tee (similar here) | Fame and Partners Corset | Carousel Shirt | Oversized Shirt (similar here) | One Piece Bikini (similar here) | Oscar Wylee Sato Sunglasses | Public Desire Boots


 

One of the latest trends we’ve been seeing off the runway is the corset belt, most notably at Prada where we saw lace up midriff corsets layered over coats and shirts giving fresh life to innerwear as outerwear. I love the lingerie inspired corset belt being utilised in a layered, cool girl capacity rather than looking suggestive.

Here I’ve styled it over an oversized mesh tee and thrown over an oversized open shirt to give the trend an androgynous, sporty, lazy look with the black and white sports inspired stiletto boots. I posted an instagram wearing it over a jumpsuit and under a pink duster to show how else it can be styled. Other ways would be right over the oversized button up shirt with thigh high boots. Get creative and you’ll look like the ultimate cool girl at your next soiree.

Glassons Road Trip

I got to spend the day with three of my favourite girls, Helen, Ash and Kiara for Glassons… we went on a fun road trip up to Palm Beach and got to cruise with this amazing vintage 1950s Chevvy! I had such an amazing time and I never take for granted that I get to do the things I love with the best girls around me!

In this look I’m wearing my fave Glassons denim shorts, a lace racer back bralette and layered over it I’ve got this awesome oversized mesh top. Mesh tees are the biggest things right now, they’re perfect for summer because you can layer over bikinis, bralettes as well as singlet tops and it looks different every time. I have it tied up but it also looks great tucked in or undone just hanging over a pair of mom or skinny jeans and sneakers for a more tom boy look.

So get yourself into Glassons because they have literally every style of clothing you need and you can get a whole outfit for under $100!

Puma

Totally milking the ‘Casual Friday’ vibe. Wearing mom jeans and what I’m pretty sure is a men’s tee of which I have no qualms – a tee is a tee and chicks can pull of guy’s tees!

I’m also rocking the Rhianna Fentys which are these faux fur slides. Totally a ‘trend’ piece but if it’s a trend piece as comfy as this then I’m on board. I ordered my size but they probably run on the bigger size so I wish I had sized down.

And this is legit: I had run out of contacts so I was just wearing my glasses with all intentions of taking them off for the shoot but instead kept them on just because it was easier (and because I could see). My brother later asked if I were wearing contacts and if the glasses were fake prescription.. Like no. Why and who would do that? Apparently there are people who do?!

How To Dress Down Bodycon

sunday-somewhere sunday-somewhere sunday-somewhere sunday-somewhere sunday-somewhere sunday-somewhere sunday-somewhere Camel Coat | Bodycon Skirt | Taylor and Belle Sweater | Nike Tennis Classic Sneakers | Sunday Somewhere Ned Sunglasses | Colette By Colette Hayman Bucket Bag | The Peach Box Twisted Nail Necklace


I love a good bodycon midi skirt, I’m talking LOVE. But sometimes you run the risk of looking too corporate or sexy when all you want to do is walk around the city and view the sites. In an effort to get out of jeans for once I paired this nude jersey midi skirt with a clean, fresh pair of leather Nikes to dress down the look and still look super FARSHUN. It works even if the top you’re wearing is figure hugging, but in this case I have a sweater on because it’s still winter here and cold af. Draping a long ass coat over the whole thing also really brings the ‘too sexy’ look down a notch but also raises the FARSHUN bar.

This hairstyle is also my ‘dirty hair’ hairstyle. So if you ever see me with a half up top knot you’ll know what’s up.

How to Pull of Slouchy Casual

I wouldn’t say this is an outfit repeat but I’ve definitely worn jeans, a tee, cami and sneakers before. It’s such a go-to outfit when you want to keep it low key and just want to wear jeans and a slouchy tee but also want to layer to be like ‘Hey, at least I tried a little’. I’ve made it extra casual with my hair in a messy bun, cuffed jeans & slouchy cardi. Nothing too structured here today! Happy Friday!

Khaki Safari

Khaki olive is just one of those colours we need to have in our wardrobes. If you’re not a huge colour person like me, but want to introduce some into your outfits you need to invest in khaki. It’s subtle and there’s a reason why it’s the base colour of all army and military uniforms. It’s meant to blend in and it’s not an in your face colour or a colour that goes out of style.

I’ve matched it back with black denim because I didn’t want to be too colourful pairing it with blue or navy denim (lol). I do find that when I wear blue denim it’s always with a white, grey or black top. Not intentional, but kind of intentional. I just like investing in staple colours! Sue me

Coffee Game Strong

I’m going to go ahead and say it’s totally fine to go out for a pre-coffee drink before actual drinks. Anyone that knows me knows that a few drinks send me straight to nap-ville so I don’t mind a sneaky espresso before I go out hahah.

In this look I’m wearing the gorgeous bustier with sleeves that drape down the arm paired with a high waisted leather look mini skirt. As usual I’m wearing lace up booties and as usual a lot of it (all of it) is black.

Where to hang out like a local in Bondi

bikini-bondi bikini-bondi bikini-bondi bikini-bondi bikini-bondi Camilla Double Strap Bikini ON SALE NOW | Le Specs Sunglasses (gold here)


As a born and raised Sydney girl I thought I’d take you to one of Sydney’s most popular destinations in Bondi that isn’t Icebergs. Where else other than North Bondi would be more fitting to shoot a Camilla bikini? Her flagship store is just a stone throw away up the road so I had to pay homage. Okay, yeah… so north Bondi’s pool is a little dingy-er than south Bondi’s cleaned one a week, white floored pool but it has more to do, more to explore, more character, more characters (locals) whereas the tourists will generally be in the middle to the south.

So if ever you’re visiting Bondi, come visit the north end, take a walk/ swim around the corner of the pool onto the rocks, walk up to the edge of the cliffs for the view, there’s more culture and the cafes are better – check out Porch and Parlour, Bondi Wholefoods, Harry’s or Shuk if you want a killer meal or coffee.

Checking In

Calvin Klein Sweatshirt | One Teaspoon Shorts (also here) | Converse Chuck Taylor


There’s nothing cosier than a fleecy pullover in winter. Working from home I live in them everyday & why wouldn’t I stock on on something I wear 7 days a week! hahah

Just checking in on this weekend edit and giving you the low-down on what’s been happening. I’ve officially moved into full time blogging (yay!) as well as creating content and still designing freelance. I set up a cute studio in my home (apartment) and despite all the extra hours I’m getting to work on the blog I still find myself working 7 days a week. How?? I guess the reality with blogging is that social media never turns off so you can’t either.

I do occasionally let myself have social media detox days where I don’t post or check instagram or any outlet I can’t be bothered with as it just de-stresses me and clears my head. Something that everyone who’s addicted to social media should do every so often.
