Last week I found some great Spring fashion from Country Road at Westfield Miranda.This week it is Katies turn!
Iconic Katies is celebrating 60 years of style this year and has had a brand and logo rejuvenation. I have bought some great pieces over the last couple of years and I found some more that are on trend and fresh at the Westfield Miranda store, for the coming Spring/Summer season.
What can you expect when you walk into Katies? Soft fresh blue colours, nautical inspired pieces, beautiful khakis and tan, and stripes, lots of stripes.
I picked out 2 trends that are big this coming season: White Jeans and Bomber Jackets. When it comes to white jeans, I am not going to lie, this is not a favourite look of mine. I have short legs, thick thighs and tight white jeans are just not that flattering on me. But, I decided to purchase a pair, to show you how I manage to make them work for me three ways!
I purchased the Slim Ultimate Jean in white for $49.95.
These have a lot of elastic and are more like jeggings than jeans. They have a very wide waistband to hold in your tummy, and are an easy pull up type pant. I found them a little plain for my liking so I distressed them with some scissors and a cheese grater!
- The only way these jeans will work for me is if I wear it with a top that covers the top of my thighs.
- Leave a little skin on show when wearing white runners with the jeans, either roll them up or fold them under.
- I went for a size smaller than I wear normally.
- White jeans are great for layering, try wearing them with a long sleeved shirt wrapped around your waist.
- Katies has the most incredible, comfortable range of denim, including jackets! Check them out.
- Don’t be afraid to wear a flirty dress over your jeans, the look is very cute.
The bomber jacket will take us from puffer jackets in Winter into the Summer Days with a lightweight version.
A bomber jacket, or a cropped jacket is the perfect layering piece. The khaki cropped jacket looks fab with my white jeans, and the jacket on the right is a white, broderie Anglaise jacket, which I think will come home with me very, very soon! Katies also do a black lightweight bomber jacket: More like a shirt, than a jacket. The floral is already one of my favourites, which I wear with chambray and grey.
Apart from these beauties, also check out some of Katies flirty dresses, off the shoulder tops and new luxe pieces, like silk shirts and real leather bags.
I hope you enjoyed this post, let me know below if there is anything else you would like me to write about.
