Mix It Up With Ashleigh Ogle

Some of the many essential items that we feel everyone should have in their wardrobe are jackets.  Whether you splurge or get one on a budget, jackets will forever be in style and are those items that stand the test of time. We love that it adapts to your wardrobe so it works with anything you have on. Jackets are great pieces for transitioning between seasons and layering as a pro or beginner. This week we show you how to not only wear the trend but own it. Someone to show you how to own it, is the fierce and down to earth model, tv personality, recording artist and celebrity influencer Ashleigh Ogle.



Tip:A cropped style shows off your waistline, making sure the jacket doesn’t swallow you especially if you’re petite.Embroidered Choker: R114.50, Colette By Colette Hayman

Tip:A jacket is a great layering item. So if you aren’t layering the top half then layer the bottom half of your look. A trend that many might not try but that is for those that want something risky and fun is by pairing your denim jeans with a skirt over. Remember the jeans have to be fitted and the skirt has to be loose fitted and slightly the same shade of the jeans.Diamante Denim Choker: R199.50, Colette By Colette Hayman

Tip:Many avoid this oversized dress jacket because you can easily drown in it and can be tricky to pair. Our tip is to show a bit of skin by means of a crop top or just pair it with fitted clothing. This is to show your figure and avoid the jacket to drown you.Gold Hoops (set of 6): R229, Accessorize

Fashion Editor I am a stylist and have worked with many celebrities. Magazines are a great platform to inform people on styling and fashion trends. Fashion gives freedom to people and allows them to be who they want to be. I loves to help readers to look as stylish as they can be, regardless of their body type, skin colour etc. It’s a great feeling to have knowing, that in helping someone choose an outfit, you’re also helping them feel more confident. When I'm not busy being a fashion editor I can be found designing and drawing.
