Today I style up a statement top from my favorite Aussie designer, Alice McCall, and get myself starry-eyed with some intergalactic-embellished accessories.

Jeans: Primark ( literally 2010 old)
Clutch: Michael Kors

Let me just start by saying that this post is in no way sponsored by Alice McCall (yes, you can revert your initial eye roll), I just freaking love this Australian brand so much that I want to go to some high building like an absolute idiot and scream about it into a megaphone.

Alice McCall. Alice McCall! ALICE MCCALL!!!!!! 

Ok, Rach: you can calm down now!

Having gone through my British-based teenage years glued to the glitzy collections of London Fashion Week, I never expected that I would fall so head-over-heels-in-love with Australian fashion. 

 Alice McCall is undoubtedly one of my favorite designers from down under. 

Intricate detailing, an air of playful femininity and glam bohemian vibes are what make this brand one of my faves. In short, Alice McCall is the epitome of my personal style.

I have been lucky enough to drool from the sidelines at Alice McCall's Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia collections for the past two seasons.

 I know I rarely feature designer brands heavily on The Daily Luxe and I assure you that you will not see me in head-to-toe Gucci babbling into the newest Iphone.

However, there's nothing wrong with treating yourself to a little designer piece you really love every once in a while!

As for Alice McCall... **Adds entire collection to basket**

My Top Tips On Styling A Statement Top

1. Keep the palette clean and simple! 
Embellishments, funky cuts and statement prints are enough of a talking point.

2. If in doubt, wear denim. 
 It has some sort of Hogwarts-like magical power that dresses down anything. "Wingardium Levi-osa"

3.  No to the necklace.
 Covering up a dramatic top with a jewellery piece would be a sartorial sin. Black chokers and very dainty pieces are an exception.
