Fashion: Embrace your quirky side

By Michiko Hylands

Express your individuality this season and stand out from the others with these non-conformist looks.

Meg bodice $299
Nadia shirt $329
Bettina skirt $479
KS boots in black $699
All from Kate Sylvester

This outfit works well if you want to disguise a tummy. The interesting clash of patterns deflects the eye and the shirt's longer hemline helps elongate the torso.

Red Velvet jumper $259
Tango pom pom pants $249
Palace blouse $269
All from Silence Was

Add drama to the silhouette by teaming with a big floppy hat.

Zen crop top $220
Shibui dress $650
Kenosha bell-sleeve shirt $450
All from Lucilla Gray

A high, chunky platform heel elevates the look and is a must-have for petite women.

Etch-a Stretch dress $259
Flare-Mingo pant $129
From Coop

The op-art effect of this dress highlights the waist, making this design perfect for curvy hourglass figures.

Hydrolab jumper $325
Solar Sail flared pant $715
Sokol heels $375
All from Karen Walker

Bright orange flatters most skin tones, from alabaster pale to darker complexions. A pop of colour around the face creates a feeling of energy and vitality.

Puzzle dress $229
Square wrap heel in wine $309
From Gorman

"Too cool for school" black accessories will balance the quirky print of this dress.

Displaced jumper $359
The Society skirt $339
From Salasai

Taller women look amazing in this ensemble. Wear your hair in a high ponytail and celebrate your statuesque form.
