Dressing Down

DEMANDS from Generation Y to dress down at the office are making casual clothes the norm in many Sydney workplaces. Employees in the IT, consumer goods, creative, telecommunications and the corporate sector are leading the charge in looking sharp without the suit. Myer has seen a 15 per cent growth in sales of chinos and "double digit" increases in the sales of men's casual work shirts. Recruitment company Hays regional director Carolyn Dickason said a decline in the amount of face-to-face meetings was behind much of the change. "There is more time being spend video conferencing, Skype and so forth. It doesn't necessarily warrant being dressed up all the time and therefore that relaxed dress sense has crept in and become acceptable," she said. "With Generation Y, the fashion boundaries have been pushed a little. The new thing is dressing business appropriate. "It's not one outfit for every occasion. Quite a lot of workers try to mirror the fashion style of the clients they are going to see."
It's the same thing at work also. Have to dress more formally when going to the clients or there are clients going to the office. I wonder if it is the same in hatteras cabanas? Must be all wearing summer-y clothes.

Pink Pump

ELLE FANNING With Thanksgiving just days away, it's the perfect time for Elle to indulge her Pilgrim garb obsession, this time pairing pink buckled pumps with a high-necked dress for an N.Y.C. screening of her film Ginger and Rosa.
Her other shoes garnered lots of attention - but I reckon, at her age she is making her own mark in fashion. Celebs are known for many things anyway - is there one about using air pot? I like her style though.


KRISTEN STEWART After two consecutive Twilight looks that were sheer madness, the star picks a Dior dress that's attention-getting in a very different way and pairs it with Barbara Bui pumps for the movie's Madrid premiere.
I reckon yellow is not always a great choice for a dress but this one hit the note, for me anyway. I have always admired her style, she has her own. The shoes area also standouts. Her not carrying any clutch add to her style - just like yoga for men is not for everyone, male that is.


DRESSED TO IMPRESS Skin is in for a sultry Miranda Kerr, who shows off her supermodel figure while celebrating W Magazine's 40th anniversary at New York's Gramercy Park Hotel on Thursday night.
I am a silent fan (silent no more) of Miranda Kerr. She's very stylish and in this, classic. I reckon, she'll look good whatever she wear including holding a personalized tumbler here.
