Signature Style how to wear...
Karlya Smith brings you the latest in fashion.
A MIX OF PATTERNS
Patterned garments have appeal worn on their own, but pairing them together makes for a dynamic and interesting look.
To prevent looking like you dressed in the dark, it pays to combine patterns in the same colour family, or that share a dominant colour.
Scale is key – a mix of eye-catching large pattern mixed with a smaller-sized print works best.
The same pattern mixed together can look good too, but is most effective when in two different scales or in inverted colours.
Add some plain-coloured or lightly textured d accessories in the mix for a little calm.

LUSH CHRISTMAS COLLECTION N
Yes it’s early to talk about Christmas, but after seeing Lush’s luscious array of sparkly, bubbly, playful limited editionon offerings offerings, the silly season is starting to look pretty pretty! There are enough magical baubles to decorate several Christmas trees, but my favourites include the Magic Wand reusable bubble bar ($13) for swishing around the tub and creating clouds of candy floss bubbles and the delightful Golden Pear soap ($13) with pear puree, cardamom oil and moisturising murumuru oil.
