As a luxury, brand & fashion consultant who has recently relocated back to Brisbane, Australia after 6 years living and working in London and Paris, I have learnt many fab tips & tricks when it comes to designer shopping and luxury styling.

My favourite shopping hack to refresh a wardrobe each season, is to curate a capsule. This uncomplicates the art of getting ready and guarantees your beautiful items can be worn in multiple ways and on multiple occasions. I am all about cost-per-wear when it comes to investing in high-end pieces.

For winter, luxe leathers, great fitting designer denim and quality base layers forms a perfect capsule foundation, with the addition of statement moments like metallics and bold prints to add freshness and interest.

Keeping your capsule to a complimentary colour palette maximises the amount of outfits you can create.

"A little styling hack - cross over and tuck your shirt give it a modern feel and cinch your waist!"

Masculine shirting is a trend here to stay and this gorgeous Xirena stripe option was a must in my Calexico winter capsule.

Sharpen the look up with a cool oversized blazer - I’m obsessed with this Anine Bing option!

Easily take this look from day to night by swapping the Citizens of Humanity denim with a gorgeous leather trouser such as these by Agolde.

A little styling hack - cross over and tuck your shirt in rather than classically button it to give it a modern feel and cinch your waist!

Metallics aren’t just for the evening - let me show you how to create some day-time looks from this capsule.

I’ve taken the gorgeous Forte Forte metallic pleated skirt, and given it a sporty vibe by pairing it with a graphic Anine Bing sweater, oversized Citizens of Humanity denim jacket and printed Phillipe Model sneakers.

If oversized isn’t your thing, swap this jacket and sweater for a classic Nili Lotan tee and layer with a leather jacket, loving this classic biker style by Rag & Bone and you are perfectly balancing the feminine skirt with edgier outerwear.

Pop on some leopard print Gianvito Rossi pumps and this outfit is ready for a long lunch.
