Chadstone’s Official Stylist - Elliot Garnaut.
Elliot takes us through every look this playful season has to offer. Fashion for the warmer weather is all about self-expression through colour and pattern and not being afraid to mix streetstyle with designer.
Be bold. Be brave. Be your own curator.
Immerse yourself in romantic florals, bold patterns and the zest of Summer!
Read on to discover Elliot’s style notes for the five key looks of this season.
LOOK 1: LA VIE EN ROSE
Look 1: La Vie En Rose
"Florals for Spring may not be ground-breaking (thanks Miranda…) but they are certainly here to stay!
Having debuted strongly this season on the runways of Valentino, Louis Vuitton and a selection of our other favourite luxury designers – there’s never been a better time to be in full bloom.
Afraid of too much floral? Try the trend by incorporating an element into your look instead of a head-to-toe blowout. Think a tee, trousers or even a fun hair accessory."
LOOK 2: SUMMER ZEST
Look 2: Summer Zest
"Tie-dye, mismatched colours, eclectic pairings – no longer just for art teachers and hippies!
Summer Zest is the modern refresh of what has always been a cult classic, eccentric dressing.
Fun, bold colours can be found in everything from dresses to trousers, from bags to sunglasses.
In my humble opinion, more is more. This is the Summer of statement!"
LOOK 3: UTILITY CHIC
Look 3: Utility Chic
"It’s never been chicer to be in uniform. Deconstructed military elements, pockets abundant and tonal colours that get the blood pumping.
Utility dressing is my pick of the season not only for its aesthetic but for its practicality.
The mega-return of the cargo pant is back.
What are you going to do with all this storage space?!"
LOOK 4: PATTERN ON PATTERN
Look 4: Pattern on Pattern
"Pattern on Pattern – for all those bored of the tonal dressing that’s reigned supreme over our wardrobes for the better part of the year, welcome Pattern on Pattern with open arms.
Whether it be layering the same or clashing two bold prints, it’s 2019’s version of colour blocking.
Go for gold."
LOOK 5: EXCESS BAGGAGE
Look 5: Excess Baggage
"I know I’m not the only one carrying more and more on a daily basis. Cue Excess Baggage.
Nowadays there is no excuse for carrying just one bag.
Microbag for AirPods, small crossbody for phone/wallet. Tote for day-to-day essentials.
You’ve heard it here first, it’s in Vogue to be a ‘bag lady’."
