Style Battle - Glam Rock Vs. Minimalist

Ever wish you had your own stylist to solve all of your style dilemmas each season?

This season it’s time to take risks and be confident with your look.

Westfield Stylist Madelin Tomelty shares her top tips on the ultimate fashion showdown this season. Whether you’re a glam rock chick or a minimal less is more kinda girl, we've got you covered right here!

Minimalist Style:


Your grandmother’s closet will be your style inspiration this season, with a retro mix of lace, knit tweeds and shawls making the sartorial cut! With its beautifully delicate feel, lace can be worn in a number of different ways and this Autumn Winter is the perfect time to experiment. Top tip: Try a vintage-inspired, nana-chic look or go for this season’s darker and moodier black lace.

The Hero Pant

Wide-legged, printed, narrow-legged, checked, floral, sequined, flared, embellished, silk and slouchy – it’s all about the pants this season and there’s something to suit every body shape.
Team a graphic style pant with a sweater and flats for a day-time, office-ready look, or light-up after hours by wearing print on print. Top tip: mix graphic slacks with a biker jacket, neon clutch and a pair of stilettoes. Ready to roll!

Glam Rock Style:


Leather is always on-trend, but this Autumn/Winter, it’s a wardrobe staple. Glossy black leather offers a sleek take on Autumn’s decadent air. Dare to be different with double leather or, slowly incorporate leather into your look with a wardrobe staple like structured jacket or classic pencil skirt. Top tip: If you’re worried about the price – look at the true cost of your investment with Westfield’s Cost Per Wear Index.

Gothic Romance

Gothic Romance is a major trend this season. The key to this trend is that dark hues are brought to life with lace and leather detailing on garments. It’s no secret that black is slimming, so work this trend to your advantage – peplum skirts will accentuate a womanly silhouette for a pear body shape and create a waist for more athletic physiques Inject some colour into your look with luminous accessories. Top tip: Opt for gold costume jewellery, leather belts and metal-capped heels.
