One Piece Outfit Inspiration

We've all got those pieces that make us feel great! Moe (clothes from Barila) and Kristjan visited Steven and Chris to talk about one piece outfit inspirations and how you can create an entire look based on one main element.


The Statement Necklace:

If you have a beautiful piece of jewellery - whether it be a statement necklace, a fabulous pair of earrings or a serious ring, keep it simple everywhere else. Jewellery doesn't have to be saved for special occasions - wear it for the day with a pair jeans and a clean white shirt to showcase the necklace. The rule of simplicity also applies to hair and makeup so keep it simple and complementary to avoid a matchy, costume look.


Where to get it:

Necklace from Rita D at Reia Studio
White Shirt fom Miss60 at The Bay
Jeans from Naked and Famous at The Bay
Flats from Lucky Brand at The Bay

The Fingerwave:

Inspired by the international runways - the fingerwave is a throwback from the 1920s and is great for parties, black tie events or even the royal wedding!  It was all about the fingerwave, so the outfit was kept soft and pretty just like the hair!


Where to get it:

Silk blouse Brochu Walker at The Bay
Skirt Rachel Roy at The Bay
Peeptoe wedges Nine West at The Bay

Neon Lips:

Electric lips are so on trend - but make sure you prepare your lips before even thinking about lipstick! Exfoliate and moisturize to ensure the lips look matte and not dry! The neon lip is a strong look, so an all black outfit stands up to the lips but doesn't compete.


Where to get it:

Lipstick Candy Yum-Yum from MAC
Tunic from Ian at The Bay
Jeans from H&M
Slingbacks from Enzo Angiolini at The Bay
Bracelet and Earrings from Rita D at Reia Studio

The Ankle Boot:

Dress from the feet up! We've all got that favourite pair of heels, boots, or in this case ankle boots! The faux snakeskin detail really punctuates the heel on these boots - making your legs look a mile long! The dress continues the neutral palette of the boots, while the jacket adds some edge. The hair and makeup soften the overall look so you don't look too hard.
