We often find ourselves in a whirl, as we maraud for the winter looks that serve for both aesthetic and practicality, and few have truly mastered this fine art. But one duo of partakers in this forever-altering arena, despite all odds, has done just that and to answer some of our most grappling questions, we have the masterminds and creative geniuses behind the venerated Australian label, Bec & Bridge.
Becky Cooper and Bridget Yorston talk glamorous winter trends and, of course, they reveal what it was like for one prominent member of stardom, Kim Kardashian-West, to recently parade their label.
You have recently launched your Winter Collection, and we are excited to see that there are flared pants and asymmetrical hems - do you have any tips for styling these pieces?
“Layer them up!! We love nothing more than working a skirt back with an oversized sweater for winter, it’s unexpected and is an easy and chic winter alternative.”
What other trends should we incorporate into our 2017 winter style?
“Having the perfect winter coat as the weather cools is a staple and continues to be a trend season after season. This winter in particular it is all about colour, something to brighten a dreary Winter’s day. Our Vivid Dreams Coat in particular is the perfect hue of blush!”
The label has become popular with celebrities like Kim Kardashian who wore the ‘Shimmy Nights’ dress on Easter Sunday - what do you think it is about Bec & Bridge that has gained celebrity attention?
“This was such a huge ‘pinch me’ moment for us, the dress looked perfection on Kim! Our dresses are always a hit with celebrities, because of the interesting fabrics and unique silhouettes we work with each season.”
The Kardashians often challenge typical fashion trends, what edge does Bec & Bridge bring to the industry?
“Our collections are designed with a confident and playful girl in mind and I think this resonates with the amazing celebrities we are lucky to dress!”
What are some pointers for dressing glam this winter - how do you stay warm without sacrificing style?
“A killer coat makes a world of difference in a winter wardrobe, it will finish off any outfit and will make you feel like an absolute boss!”
“Another essential is to invest in a great boot for winter, they pair back easily with any outfit and can instantly elevate your look whilst being perfect for the cooler weather!”
What is your ultimate glam winter outfit?
“This season we are all about teaming a cropped flare, like our Vixen pant, back with a simple cashmere sweater. Such an easy layering combo and of course warm!”
“For night you can’t go past our Liquid Envy Bias Dress; there is something so great about being able to work a slip dress into a winter wardrobe - we have done this by adding a long sleeve to our signature slip silhouette.”
