Styled by Tash Sefton | Linen & The Sportscraft October Collection

Thursday October 11, 2018

When it comes to ageless style and effortless day-to-day dressing, there really is no one who knows better than Tash Sefton. Sydney based stylist, artist, influencer, mother of two and self-professed serial entrepreneur, Tash’s fashion ventures always lead to exciting places… and this is no exception! To celebrate the diversity and easy-to-style nature of our October collection, we invite Tash into our wardrobe to tell us all about great Summer outfitting and what it means to love your linen this season.

Summer Styling Tips with Tash


         I couldn’t be more excited, Summer is just around the corner and I really want to share with you some of my favourite pieces from the October Sportscraft collection! Firstly, I want to start off with one of my go-to tips for building a great Summer wardrobe, which can really be applied to any and every season – that is, building your basis.
         There are so many people who think you need a different outfit for every event or occasion in life but the truth is, you just need the right things.
         I have found that with clever shopping and thoughtful styling, you can achieve so many unique and amazing looks with a wardrobe of classic pieces - especially with a good foundation of well-fitted separates.
         Sportscraft is one of the best brands to build this wardrobe with as it is absolutely filled with great key pieces that can be beautifully mixed and matched.

Why Tash Loves Linen


         When it comes to Summer styling, no other fabric comes to mind quite like linen! Yet, so many people are afraid of wearing linen because they either don’t know how to or they simply don’t like the creasing.
         Firstly, let me bust a myth, the creases in linen are not flaws in the fabric – they are what gives linen its personality and character and I happen to think, they are what makes linen particularly beautiful.
         Secondly, when shopping for linen, I recommend trying a size or two up from your usual size as I really believe linen looks best when styled oversized. (Sometimes, you’ll even catch me in the menswear section shopping for myself as there’s something I really love about a man-styled shirt!).

When It Comes To Basics...


         When it comes to basics, often people think they are too plain or boring to carefully consider as a core part of their wardrobes. For me, this is not the case. Without great basics, it’s really hard to build versatile looks. Whether you are looking for something casual made of a cotton jersey, or something dressy made of silk or linen, basics are a fundamental part of creating a dynamic wardrobe. So, don’t let your basics became the bottom of the list! They are seriously important.
         Anyway, I hope you’ve enjoyed this special styling session with me. To see more and catch a glimpse of some of the collection for yourself, press play on the video below…
