Over my many years as stylist, collaborating on creative projects, I have collected many, many fashion images that I love. Inspiration brings these images to life.

Inspiration: The Aline Suede Skirt

There’s something so wonderfully nostalgic about an aline suede skirt, wistfully evoking all the best bits of the 70’s (as we in fashion are so fond of doing) whilst still managing to make those timeless ‘staples’’ (read: denim shirts, army jackets) feel modern and alluring.

I know what you’re thinking though, suede can be expensive… and there’s that ever present red-wine-fear. But we’re all grown ups here and we can’t live our entire lives in fear of red-wine – especially when the alternative looks this good.

And we also have science on our side, which has so conveniently come a long way in the field of suede protection (yes, Scotchgard… I’m looking at you).

Keen to check out some options?

Inspiration: Bottle Green

It would seem that many of us still harbour less-than-fond memories of our school uniforms – or more specifically, the colours maroon and bottle green.

The thing is, I reckon it was those unshapely poly-blend blazers and awkwardly long and universally unflattering kilts that actually have a lot more to answer for.

And it would seem I’m not alone, as both of these handsome hues have been experiencing a recent spike in popularity amongst the stylish set.

Case in point – just look how cute these bottle green pants are with this stripy top (which I’m sure you’re not short of, but in case you’re in need of an update, check this out).

Feeling yourself warming a little to bottle green?

As luck would have it, I just so happen to have rounded up all the loveliest bottle green pants available in store now.

And just in time for the weekend, a little bit of black lace to get you in the mood.

“But I’d never actually wear a lace bodysuit”

…I hear you say.

Do you know why you think that??

Because you associate black lace with ’special’ and you save it up for the ‘right’ occasion (which strangely never seems to actually happen).

Enough!!

In my opinion, the best way to wear lace is where you’d least expect it – with that well-worn white cotton tee, under a boxy cut cotton shirt that you love to wear all loose and sloppy or else with your favourite chunky knit – trust me, I’m a stylist 😉

Feeling like you might need to see some more options?

I’ve got you covered.

Inspiration: Suede Overalls

Overalls are not new to INEZ Daily… we’ve been good friends for quite some time (as evidenced here).

But just when I thought I’d seen it all, something new’s caught my eye – the suede overall.

Kind of like denim overall’s worldly, sophisticated, slightly eccentric cousin, they also happen to look really cute with turtle neck tops.

Intrigued? Need to see more?

Follow the link below for some great suede overalls at every budget (including a vegan option) that I’ve found online…

Knits are great. Few would disagree. Some of our favourites memories have been shared with knits… namely because we relegate them to our cold-weather weekend and holidays wardrobes.

But you’re totally selling them short.

There’s so much more to your ‘relationship’ that’s still to be explored.

Designers of late have been totally upping their knitwear-game with more technical cuts and compositions that sees these wooly numbers looking pretty sharp.

Stepping out of their (warm, comfy) shadows, knitwear can now be seen mingling in the office, at parties and maybe even on a date or two.

So to get this (woolly) ball rolling, follow the link below for my edit of the best knit tops, just perfect for the office, that you can buy online…

Inspiration: The Black Turtleneck

Here at INEZ Daily,  we’re always chatting about those elusive essentials, be it…

What All The Cool Girls Are Wearing

How To Nail the Perfect Back-to-Work Look

or simply

What You Need In Your Wardrobe.

But there’s one piece that we don’t chat nearly enough about – one thing that has been a constant in my wardrobe for many, many (maaaaany) years – the black turtle neck top.

Ever flattering in a face framing, elegantly-neck-lengthening kind of way, the black turtle neck is your perfect cool weather companion and looks great on its own or else under coats, jackets and knits… but that’s not the end of their (handsome) story.

For a new take on some of your wardrobe favourites, try layering a slim-fitting black turtle neck under blouses, shell tops, dresses, jumpsuits and even that bustier you bought on sale and have been saving for ‘something special’ (read: don’t quite know when you’re going to wear it).

Are you feeling the love too?

Inspiration: Knit Love

As the days get shorter and we make that familiar (albeit begrudging) move from short-sleeve to long-sleeve, sandals to boots and sun hats to Fisherman’s Caps, I bring you a little knitwear inspiration to ease the transition.

Like what you see?

Stay tuned for my ‘Great Knit Roundup’ coming sooooon.

So, we chatted about ‘The Transeasonal Trench’, we explored ‘The Bomber Jacket’ but we all know that this whole ‘temperature’ thing is going to continue in its current downwards spiral.

Because of this, at some point you’re going need to get a little bit more ‘serious’ about winter (i.e make sure you have a winter coat that will keep you warm (without bringing shame and scorn upon you and your loved ones).

The thing is, good ones can get a little pricey so you want to make sure you’ve got one that will stand the test of time.

Thinking you might need a little help?

I’m here for you 🙂

Inspiration: The Bomber Jacket

We were chatting recently about the trench coat and all of its terribly handy-meets-stylish transeasonal charm.

But maybe you prefer your outerwear with more of a nostalgic nod to retro-athletic-pursuits (because yup, that’s totally a thing).

Well, you’re in luck!

This season sees the most wonderful collection of colourful, embellished bomber jackets for you to choose from.

Pop back tomorrow for my round up of all the best styles available in stores now.

I remember at a very young age having my mother explain to me (somewhat emphatically) the difference between needs and wants (or in my case, that would have been neeeeeeds!!!).

Thanks to this important life lesson, I know now that I don’t actually need another handbag… but fashions recent flirtation with these super-cute mini cross-body bags sure has me with a serious case ‘The Wants’.

You feeling it too?
