“Look around yourself and find the beauty“

These are the ultimate simple and casual looks that continue to be beautiful and stylish. The classic colours – red, white, blue and classic prints – polka dots, stripes and checks never seem to go out of fashion. I believe almost anyone can rock the classic polka dot dress or a pair of cute striped shorts no matter what body type.
This trend can be transformed into anything! From sophisticated to casual, from catwalk to the high street. Everyone seems to want a piece of the classic look that is almost always in the stores.

This striking and beautiful look was inspired by Kenzo’s catwalk makeup at the 2014 Paris Fashion Week. The coloured winged eyeliner creates a stand out yet sophisticated look that would work perfectly with some block coloured clothing. Now I think about it, the look kind of reminds me of 60’s, 70’s and 80’s makeup all mixed together while keeping on trend.

Lets go back to basics. Now I know a bright top never killed anybody but some days I find it easier to fling on a plain white T with a gorgeous pair of jeans. I never have to worry about anything matching or the style portrayed because I know the look will always work! This outfit holds a casual, yet beautiful look that can work on anyone. Although it is a common style it is classic, simple and accessible which is why it is universally appealing. I mean almost every girl would have a pair of jeans and a plain white T-shirt in their wardrobe. Coming into the Aussie summer it is a perfect, essential look that, while being casual maintains a high level of fashion and style.
I chose to go for a more natural, summer beach style as shown through my accessories, makeup and hair. By adding the aviator sunnies, watch, rings and my favourite Wittner sandals I was able to match my unique style. However there are so many different ways you can accessorise this outfit to make it your own so I say GO FOR IT!
I wear a Cotton On T-shirt, Guess jeans, Wittner leather sandals, Lovisa Rings, anaii Pink watch
For this shoot I really wanted to create four looks that incorporated the vintage/retro style while still keeping it on trend. I mixed certain pieces with items that can be found in your wardrobe or in the shops at the moment. The one thing that made this shoot work was the beautiful setting of Sydney’s harbour along with the backdrop of the Harbour Bridge and the Opera House. I could shoot at this location again and again and NEVER get bored. It just was the perfect location to launch EMPIRE EVE. It truly reflected my own style and my love of Sydney as a city. Everything just came together perfectly on the day and overall the look was what I wanted from the beginning so……. hope you all enjoy the photos!
