Looking Attractive In Office Grey Suit. Mission: Possible

Many girls complain that strict office dress code doesn’t allow them to show their feminine side. Well, this task is challenging but not impossible.

Italian beauty Claudia Cardinale in La scoumoune (1972) shows us how look classy and attractive in a grey suit.

You can creat a modern version of Claudia’ outfit with AquascutumBlyth Fitted Jacket and TopshopPussybow Blouse. Aquascutum teamed jacket with Lily Pencil Skirt (speaking frankly, I don’t like much button fastening, it looks better on casual stuff).

You can wear Blyth Fitted Jacket and TopshopPussybow Blouse (or any similar jackets and blouses) with darker shade skirts, like MangoPencil Skirt and Reiss‘ midi-skirt Albert. If you prefer more modern look, go for Topshop High Waisted Cigarette Trousers.

Old cinema is endless source of inspiration for modern fashionistas, who don’t want to be trend victims but masters of their own style.

Look at Catherine Deneuve’ character outfit: it looks relaxed, effortlessly chic and timeless. Guess, what is the title of this movie? The Woman In The Red Boots / La femme aux bottes rouges (1974)!

Bright long boots help to remind people that you’re woman during the season of coats, sweaters and jeans.

Here is my version of red boots outfit.

High-Heel Leather Boot + Melton Wool Pea Coat + Slim Rinced Raw Jeans + Cashmere Roll-Neck + Alpaca & Leather Gloves + Leather Tote Bag. All by Swedish brand Arket.

Googie Withers’ character wears black & white pearl necklace, but you can add more colours to your outfit with Pearls of Joy(left), Mastoloni Viva Tahitian Pearl Strand Necklace and Honora (right) strands.

By the way, pearl necklaces are multipurpose:

Honora’ lilac strand with or without knot will look cute with Morgan De Toired evening Asymetrical Belted Bustier and every day Plain Straight-Cut Jumper with Boat Neck. Reiss grey Albert Skirt and Chie Mihara vintage inspired Julian shoes will be stylish partners for bustier and jumper.

Back to USSR or Russian movie star in swimming suit

Many people think that sex appeal was strictly forbidden in Soviet cinema. Well, it’s only half of the truth: sensual scences were there, but they were served as delicious desserts in very small portions.

And sexy actresses and actors were never called «sexy» but «attractive».

Soviet movie star Irina Skobtseva looks very seductive in swimming suit in good old movie Ordinary Man (1956).

No doubt, dark bandeau one-piece swimming suit is the perfect choice for girls who want to highlight their feminity (and for those who want to hide few extra inches of the belly).

Here are some modern variations for an inspiration.

They say Wild West accessories look best with denim, but I think American West‘s Grand Prairie Multi-Compartmet Crossbody Flap Bag and leather Ladies’ Wide Cuff Bracelet will look cute too with Paule Ka‘s classic ¾ sleeve Dress In Tweed Gaze and Pumps In Smooth Perforated Leather.

Cute geometric skirt is going for a walk

Veronica Beard‘s Ana Skirt is a perfect choice for those who has beautiful legs. Add to this mini-skirt Veronica Beard‘s striped Simpson Tee, Danse Lente‘s Lilou Bianco bag, G.H.Bass‘ burgundy Wynn Velvet Mule Weejuns – and you’ll get pretty casual outfit.

Bunion-friendly shoes on Duchess’ feet and its coral version

I bet majority of uber-trendy girls would describe Camilla’s Sole BlissIngrid shoes as dangerously boring, but they will grow older too you know, this pair is perfect choice for those who don’t want to draw attention to their legs. And for sure this neutral camel colour will comliment very bright clothing.

Vice versa bright coral version of Ingrid shoes together with Sole BlissJemima Bag will add some stylish fuel to Aalto‘s beige Wrap Tailored Jacket and Marks&Spencer‘s cream Linen Blend Straight Leg Trouser.
