In Good Company – Capsule 2

2 July 2013

Earlier this the year, I reviewed In Good Company, a new label offering a collection of gorgeous modern day classics and quality basics at an affordable price point.

The whole collection oozes understated style and effortless chic, with fluid and feminine shapes. I really like their stuff!

In this latest collection – Capsule 2 – look out for sleek cuts, stylish colour blocking, touches of pleat details, and chic silhouettes of the little white dress.

These are my favourite picks and 2 ways to wear them.

Ellis Slouchy Trousers

Aah I do love a good pair of slouchy pants. So effortless and cool to wear. These are hands down my favourite piece from the collection because of their excellent “slouchy to slim-fit ratio”. Not too baggy, not too fitted. Just right.

Plus, the back fits very nicely around my bum (like I said, it’s not too loose and baggy) and the crotch is not too low that they look like clown pants.

It features a comfy elastic waist, elastic cuffs and good sized pockets. I am wearing their smallest size S (which fits AUS8/UK8) so it’s a little big for me around the waist. But I loved mine so much, that I went to a tailor to take them in a bit.

I have been wearing mine non-stop these last few weeks… with a simple tee and scarf.

I also wore the slouchy trousers in a sharper and more polished outfit – white blazer, a colourful silk tank, some matching jewels and my new silver shoes.

Perfect for the office and work place.

Jess Draped Collar Top

The draping on this top is just lovely! It is a bit different to your standard sleeveless top, as it has a smart and tailored look to it. It’s visually interesting, and has an elegant shape. It radiates an effortless, day-time glamour that is versatile for work or play.

Here I teamed it with an equally vibrant skirt for a fun and punchy party outfit. The lace adds a bit of texture and the silver sandals keeps the outfit feminine and fancy.

This top definitely fits as part of a corporate wardrobe. It can easily be mixed and matched with your working staples… a black pencil skirt, a printed skirt, or pants (that are black, charcoal or pin stripe).

Also the top looks great when worn with shorts, jeans or cropped pants.

I’m wearing white cropped pants and leopard print heels for a smart-casual daytime look.

The top comes in a bright sorbet (pictured) and a navy. I’m wearing a size XS.

Gretchen Dress with Peep Sleeves

When I saw this dress on the model, I didn’t know whether it would look good on me. But I chose it anyway, and when it arrived, I was so so happy that it looked great!

The off-shoulder sleeves are pretty and sexy, in a relaxed poolside goddess way.

Its silhouette is clean and sleek, yet the fabric is fluid, flowy and loose. It’s comfortable and unfussy to wear.

The length is nice, classy and elegant. I felt like I could browse through an art gallery on the weekend in this dress.

But I tend to wear my dresses a bit shorter – so my legs look longer. So I wore a belt on my waist and hitched up the dress a bit… and that looked fabulous! It felt a bit more like a party dress or a dancing dress for summer nights at the beach :)

The dress has a lining of the same material, so it’s not see through. I just wore my standard, skin-coloured, strapless bra and skin-coloured underwear underneath.

I’m wearing size XS.
