Sig­na­ture Style how to wear...

Karlya Smith brings you the lat­est in fash­ion.

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.

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.
