Perth, Australia

Tom Ford sable smoke lipstick / Wide brim fedora - similar here and here / Missguided shaggy grey faux fur coat, black lace cami top and powder blue wool foldover clutch / Topshop ripped joni jeans / Emma Shipley for Atelier Swarovski white opal Leo ring and Atelier Swarovski Core Collection Neva bracelet / Kandee calf fur lace-up amor heels

It is the easiest thing in the world to throw on a lace camisole and some shredded jeans, and mark that as an outfit. The apparent twist, however, to the trend topping off-duty run is the casual incorporation of sparkle in the form of glistening reflective matter, and the balance of some serious Swarovski shine with neutrals like pearly whites. For the most part, take effortless to the next level with a faux fur coat slung over.

Many apologies for my disappearing act over the past week. Korea offered plenty of Seoul good skyline feels and river views, while Singapore amped up the glam for the Asian Couture Federation awards gala where I donned royal blue.

Two more sleeps and back to Perth I go!

More often than not, a nuance of pyjama chic is sufficient for playing down sophisticated separates like collarless tweed coats or silky sky-high stilettos. My present day breed look, no longer heavy with languor, has cleaned up with gold-plated jewellery featuring Swarovski crystals purposefully draped over what seems like a long-sleeved nightdress.

After all it's about the ease of the silhouette; the idea of being put together and falling apart. Right?

And now I must run, my flight to Korea awaits. Keep up!
