How to wear metallic pleats, slogan jackets & lace tops

Written by Sally

So 3 wks ago I launched #SpotMyStyle – a real street style community to not only celebrate individuality on the streets of Brisbane, Barcelona and beyond but also help others find the right pieces – I see so many incredibly stylish women grocery shopping, the chemist, school dropoffs, events, doctor’s surgery and on instagram around the suburbs of the world.

I wanted to highlight some of these amazing women I notice and inspire women of all ages, shapes and sizes to express themselves and live out a few of my 2016 Personal Styling client mantras.

Dare More, Care Less – don’t worry what anyone will say or think – wear something that makes you feel happy and alive. #daremorecareless

Individuality is always on trend – you don’t need to be buying new things to have style – show and express yourself no matter how old you are or how long you have had the pieces. #individualityisalwaysontrend

Live your Life in Full Colour – don’t be afraid to add some colour and joy into your everyday clothes  – don’t wait to express your creativity. #liveyourlifeinfullcolour

The response is  amazing with over 460 posts so far !

Here is  what I am loving from the #SpotMyStyle real streetstyle community this week and links on where to buy similar or exact match pieces.


#SpotMyStyle My Top 5 this week

Real StreetStyle Roundup 

1. Maxi Silver Pleats & Bomber


Kate Hiscox nails this tricky trend – utterly effortless – the bomber – the H&M metallic pleats , the Gucci shoes and bag  – love everything about this look.

2. Word up

@styled_by_karen showing love for @lisagermaneau

Who doesn’t love the weekend – what a great customised slogan jacket from Zara kids (size 14) –  I often shop in the teens section (Seed, Target are favourites)  slogan jackets are still all the rage and you can easily customise your own if you don’t feel keen to spend $$$. Get some paint – some scotchguard and get creative !

3. Lace Lover

@vivrantsass gives such a sweet ladylike feel to her jeans and heels – love the pops of pink and orange with the repetition of the cut out feel through the bag – this is just stunning.

If you like this top you can buy similar here at Bardot $79.95




4. Hola Amiga 


Shabby Sisters named this dress after stylist and teacher Alex and no wonder ! She knows how to rock the young modern boho luxe look like no other – and 30k fans agree with me. Plus she is a cool chick x

Snap up her namesake dress – $69 – Buy Here

Pick up one of the last of Natalie Alamein’s Hola Bags $50 – Buy Here




5. Stripes & Checks


I have been following Diane only for a short while but I love her individual style and joyful take on fashion. Every picture exudes so much energy and fun. And she plays around with lots of different styles – here she works stripes on checks like an utter pro.

Both her pieces from – fully customised
