It’s the long weekend. Huzzah!
In honour of Easter, I thought it’d be fun to go on Polyvore and create an egg-citing style and inspo board.
What do you think? It’s a bit of an eclectic assortment. I’m absolutely loving pastel shades and monochrome, minimalist dressing at the moment. Plus that bunny looks cute enough to cuddle!
I hope everyone has a safe and happy weekend.
It would be an understatement to say that the sheer trend is still going strong this season.
The look has been interpreted in a multitude of ways by high fashion designers and fast fashion chains.
From showing a little skin with peekaboo panels to translucent fabrics, sheer dresses or blouse and shirt combos are trending everywhere. See-through shoes and handbags are also making an appearance!

There’s a line between trendy and tasteless when it comes to the transparency style.
The knack to this trend is often to try choosing outfits that focus on bareness in one area only.
If you’re nervous about trying this look out, accentuate bareness in areas like the shoulders and legs, rather than over the bust.
Another way to work this look is to try styles that play on different textures and patterns, rather than traditional see-through fabrics.

Looking for some sheer additions and shopping inspirations?
Here’s a few items aligned with the trend that I’m lusting over at the moment (individual product details below):
Like the cloud-covered sky these past few days and the recently released infamous movie, grey – all 50 shades of it – is all the rage at the moment.
Commonly associated with conformity and modesty, this colour evokes various other emotions and ideals due to it’s different associations. It’s the hue linked to ash and marble, the wolf, and the dove.
Grey was the colour most often worn by fashionably dressed women during the Victorian era and the dashing urban male of the 1950s and 1960s, with the grey suit favoured by cinematic icons Cary Grant and Humphrey Bogart.
How is a modern woman meant to use this colour as her muse? Grey inspo goodness below!
I actually have the leather skirt from H&M that features below and I love it (I know it’s not grey, but the style is very flattering and slightly edgy, so I wanted to share it). It was a recent purchase from the new store at Indooroopilly Shopping Centre in Brisbane.
I hope you enjoyed this week’s Trending Tuesday post. Thanks for stopping by; I’d love it if you popped by again next week.
Some things in our wardrobes come and go, while others come back season after season, like denim.
Ever since spunky Genoese Navy sailors first strutted around in denim back in the 1500’s this fabric, which originated in the French town of Nimes, has created strong style statements.
In recent years fashion has ripped up the denim rulebook (and often the material) more than ever, with fresh ideas and fascinating details. From shirtdresses to shearling to creative tailoring, denim is still having a moment.
Within the Pre-Fall 2015 collections were deep indigo trenches, courtesy of Alexander McQueen, and spring collections saw ankle skimming ‘70s inspired denim skirts.
Two of the recent denim trends to emerge that translate easily into the ready to wear category include denim on denim and denim dresses. You can see more on these denim trends and styling inspo (that you can shop) below.
Double denim is certainly back, but it can be tricky to pull off.
Modernise your look by using contrasting shades of denim. Think dark jeans with a light chambray top.
This will help you avoid any flashbacks to the “denim tuxedo” vibes of decades past.
If you want to avoid looking costume-like or dated, make sure you shy from any outfit extras that have a western or ‘80s feel. Instead wear your denim on denim with polished accessories and a confident attitude!
Above is my take on the double denim trend. What do think of it? I’d love to hear your comments in the comment section or you can shop the look below!
There are so many cute styles to pick from when it comes to denim dresses, with options to suit different body shapes. I tend to like them paired with vintage-style brown belts and sandals for a casual, day-time look.
If you’ve yet to invest in a denim dress—or need inspiration on how to style it—scroll through the set of items I have curated below!
I hope you enjoyed reading this week’s Trending Tuesday post and will tune in again for more 🙂
I can’t say I’m a fan of red wine, but I am liking the fashion world’s current drink of choice.
The Pantone colour for 2015 is Marsala, a warm reddish-brown hue.
This hearty, yet stylish tone has already been translated into recently released fashion designs, beauty products and home furnishings.
Designers like Daniel Silverstain, Herve Leger by Max Azria, and Dennis Basso showcased Marsala in their spring 2015 collections.
As a Queenslander, who supports the Maroons and is heading into cooler weather, I’m pretty excited to see how this colour will take over as the year continues…I definitely think some accessories and lippy in this edgy colour will be added to the My Eclectic Muse collection soon.
