Outfit 1: Jigsaw Cropped Wide Leg Pants / H&M Jumper
Outfit 2: Jigsaw Wide Leg Culotte
Both pants available at selected Jigsaw Stores and now available online.
If you haven’t jumped on this train yet, I suggest you get on it fast. The Culotte or Cropped Pant trend, whatever the length, has been around long enough now for you to love it, hate it or be too scared to try it.
I love the feeling of wearing floaty skirts, but with this love, comes the very real fear of the dreaded ‘gust of wind undie flash’. All too often I’ve been stuck with a coffee in one hand, clutch in the other and no hand to shield my laundry day knickers from onlooking pedestrians, traffic and tradies, when I’m caught off guard by that windy jerk.
Culottes and Cropped Pants are like the airy, loose, floaty friend that I’ve been looking for. The friend that will shield me from all probing eyes, even on the most gusty of days.
If you love the look but are struggling to figure out what to wear with them, strap on a pair heels and this strange, alien pant turns into your best, most comfortable friend.
Culottes and Cropped Pants, because sometimes you need a little room to breathe.
BOOM. There’s your slogan.
What do you wear when you’re going to eat 1.5KG of BBQ meat along with sides like Bacon Mac ‘n’ Cheese, Bacon Beans, Slaw, Brioche, topped off with healthy serving of Cronuts and coffee?
Some adjectives that popped into my head while I was getting dressed were baggy, stretchy, elasticised, comfortable, did I mention baggy and stretchy? So that’s exactly what I did. I pulled on my elasticised waist jersey skirt, baggiest black tank and even my most comfortable bra and I was ready for any food that was coming my way.
My Sunday was looking up. The sun was shining, the day was getting warmer, I couldn’t see a cardigan, jacket or hoodie in sight AND i stumbled across this awesome graffiti of jousting knights riding prawns on the way to lunch.
KNIGHTS. RIDING. PRAWNS.

New York Fashion Week is about to end and Is it just me or is anyone else more excited to view the clothes off the catwalk rather than on?
When Fashion Week rolls around each season, there are of course many designers shows who I favour and frequent. But the most frequented fashion show of all? The street happy snaps of photographer, Tommy Ton. There’s nothing like a horde of models, bloggers, photographers and fashions most elite, all gathered in one place, to create a frenzy of the latest and greatest fashion trends and beyond.
It’s is a free-for-all for anyone to get their fashion freak on and for me it’s more eye-candy than a Magic Mike strip show, with a guest appearance by Ryan Gosling and maybe Tom Hardy…
Back to my point, it’s real people (well kind of), wearing real (expensive) clothes, in the streets of some of the best cities in the world.
“Winter is Coming”, or so we were promised in season 1 of Game of Thrones. Now, with 4 seasons down, we find ourselves still patiently waiting and Winter has still, not come.
Similarly Sydney siders have found themselves in a similar predicament, minus the Giants, Whitewalkers, Wolves, Dragons and the biggest battle The Wall has ever seen.
However, today, you finally came through with the blustery, icy, Winter goods. It only took you two and a half months of lukewarm “winter” days and the threat of Spring around the corner, to actually get there.
Thankfully this icy blast coincided directly with designing Jigsaw’s AW15 coats. With freezing cold toes and a sniffly nose as my inspiration, I armed myself with my thinking cap, in the form of my Brooklyn Nets Pom Pom beanie, and I directed my full attention to researching styles, fabrics and everything outerwear.
Next season you will be seeing the continuation of a more relaxed silhouette, semi masculine styling, checks, plaids, herringbones and tweeds.
The season will be all about bringing a subtle femininity to slightly masculine styling. Tones of powder blue, hues of dusty blush and notes of lilac will be paired with easy throw-on, straight, DB coats. While large, brushed checks and knit textured tweeds will envelop you in comforting cocoon shapes with oversized collars, pockets and sleeves.
Come AW15, for those of you who haven’t already met, say hello to the season of ‘Relaxed Femininity’.
AKA my most comfortable Winter wardrobe yet.
