Step out with flare
As a passionate proponent of New Zealand fashion, I was very excited to clock British beauty Rosie Huntington-Whiteley in head to toe Georgia Alice. The young designer’s Memory blazer, $999, and flares, $569, tap into a whole bunch of current trends - double-breasted blazers, grey check and wide leg/flared pants in particular.
A suit like this gives plenty of mileage too, worn as a set for the biggest impact, or choose either just the jacket (try with jeans or a pencil skirt) or pants (cute with a printed tee or smart with a classic white blouse) to play things down.
RHW has sealed the deal with a bumbag (if you’re brave) and pepped up an otherwise quite understated look with lashing of red lipstick (she apparently loves NARS Velvet Matte lip pencil in Mysterious Red) and barely-there clear sandals.
