These celebs gave us some hot fashion inspo – so we shopped the look for you…
There’s fashion inspiration everywhere – from awards shows and TV to social media and everyday encounters.
While it’s wonderful to imitate a look you love, there’s also something to be said for making it your own.
Superbalist has introduced three exceptional occasion-wear brands, so you can shop the styles your favourite celebs are sporting – with your own twist, of course!
Velvet exudes red-carpet class, with runway worthy, head-turning party pieces; Blake lets you show up and ‘own’ any room you enter, with daring season must-haves; and Milla is a glamorous, flirty brand with the perfect, polished piece for every special occasion.
This season is all about versatility – wearing the same items multiple ways
In the current economy, we’re all trying to make money stretch. That means getting innovative!
Invest in some superb wardrobe staples you know you can restyle into myriad looks… for example, one jumpsuit worn three ways.
This works especially well for occasion wear – nab a perfect short dress and accessories it differently so it transitions from day to night… or the office to the beach, and the beach to the bar.
Needs some stellar style inspo from smart celebs who have mastered the versatility trend? Here are two local actresses who are getting it right…
