Friday Fashion Files - MAN STYLE

We tend to think that guys have it easy when it comes to dressing day-to-day.
But, like the man-flu, get them started on the issue and it becomes a whole big deal...
So if, like Melanie Griffith put it in Working Girl, you "have a mind for business and a body for sin", let's put these two together, get a bit clever and borrow from the boys...

But don't go reaching for the brill cream just yet.
International fashion houses, from the likes of Stella McCartney to YSL, have made man-style dressing a major moment year after year.  Feel free to embrace the head-to-toe guy get-up, or take a few select pieces and add an edge to your working girl look.

{WITCHERY wide collar double breasted jacket $149.95}

*Embrace the very of-the-moment boxy silhouette and standout finishes [large buttons, front feature pockets, cuff detail] and rock the 'pea coat' vibe.  This jacket, a style originally worn by European sailors, is made of 100% high density wool and is fully lined for even the coldest of sea breezes or corporate takeovers.

{PORTMANS gemma grey suit pant $69.95}

*Who wears the pants???  You do - of course.  [Forget them and it could get weird...]
Slip these babies on and your outfit is half-way there.  
Dress them up or down, wear with heels or flats - opt for some flashy statement jewels to offset the classic front pleat and smash through the glass ceiling in style.

{FRENCH CONNECTION fast block silk LS shirt $99.95}

*Don't forget to be playful.  Dressing like a boy gives you a licence to thrill, and a colourful button down is a brilliant place to start.  Express your inner geek and close the deal with the confidence only a sharp, contrast collar can achieve.  Add chunky gold watch and pointy heels for extra credit.

So Ladies, let's stick it to the man!

It Takes Two To Tango...

There are two sides to every fashionable coin.
Some days call for an outrageous statement piece.
Other times we need something to fit in with our current wardrobe 
- the elusive missing link to make or break your look.

The Look Lite has found options for both dilemmas.
So who do you want to be?
Naughty or nice?

{COLETTE lipstick necklace $4.97}
{FRENCH CONNCTION feather pendant $29.95}
Beauty School Dropout   VS   The Natural Beauty
What we wear around our necks says a lot about who we are.
It's close to our face, the first point of contact for new friends, and they are a beautiful way to dress up a simple cotton tee.  We are loving these two - the red lipstick shows our vamp side, and the palm leaf for a more relaxed weekend vibe.

{INSIGHT polka denim sleeveless $40.00}
{COTTON ON monaco woven spliced tee $10.00}
Dare To Bare   VS   Cute Cap Sleeves
Spots.  LOVE 'EM!  Always in style and easy to pair with your everyday basics.
Polka dots spell party and fun loud and clear, hence their namesake that can be traced back to the 1800's dance halls.
Choose the denim sleeveless and match with skinny black jeans for a rebel feel, and slip the dotty tee under your parka [immediately if not sooner].

{DOTTI naww beanie $9.95}
{PORTMANS lurex beret $9.95}
Animal Instinct   VS   Classic Preppy
One of the quickest ways to lose heat this winter is through the top of your head.
So, we suggest the same remedy here as to solving the problem of the bad hair day 
- leave your hat on.
The bobble ears on the left celebrates your child-like, creative side [The Look Lite Lady owns one in black], but who can go past the beret.  Whether you are a political activist or a avid hipster, this hat is uniformly stylish.

{ONE TEASPOON equador knit shorts $90.00}
{PORTMANS knitted cable short $19.95}
Party Pants   VS   Wooly Warmers
Perhaps not the most obvious choice for winter, but what's stopping us having a little fun in the shorts department whatever the weather?
Festive or fancy - opt for the colourful aztec number to dance like no one is looking.
Or, if you like the finer things in life, wrap your legs around these grey woollen draws.  Accessorise with a warm cup of tea at your leisure.

Happy Shopping!
