If there's anything we can all agree on, it's that we all have that one woman (or women!) in our lives whose style we admire from afar. Pulling off that 'I barely tried' look, yet always looking polished and styled, comes effortlessly to some. For the rest of us, we have to work on it, but at Who What Wear Australia, we're always trying to make it that little bit easier.
Summer is around the corner, and it's easily the most social time of year. I'm getting organised by updating my Pinterest style board with summer street style outfit ideas, and what did I notice while on my pinning-spree? Stylish women all have a few things in common. They add little details that seem like NBD (an off-the-shoulder pull of a shirt, one dangly earring instead of two, long shirt sleeves left unbuttoned), or they follow outfit formulas that look chic all-year round.

Discover New Ways to Wear Old Classics
Chances are, you probably wear your button-up shirts the way they were intended. How do women with killer style wear them? Off-the-shoulder, of course. Dreaming up new ways to wear pieces you've owned forever, is the difference between knowing what's 'on trend', and having interesting style. If you can make the pieces in your wardrobe work differently, you'll always be the girl your friends aspire to be.
Just because the weather is sweltering, doesn’t mean you need to wear next to nothing. Get strategic and play with proportions, cut outs, and fabrics. Sometimes my coolest, most comfortable outfits are the ones where I’m covered head-to-toe, but with the right fabric choice, I feel fashion-forward and cool (as in, temperature cool). Fashion girls know to look for voluminous in breathable fabrics like 100% cotton and linen.
What do women with perfect style always do? They have a pair of jeans on rotation no matter what the season. For winter it might be a pair of black skinny legs, for summer, a white-wash pair of jeans feels appropriate. No matter what the season calls for, way their looks stay interesting, is by mixing up how the denim is worn. For summer, wear yours with a T-shirt, boho blouse, or off-the-shoulder top. Three very different ways, to wear one wardrobe staple.
