Leather cap is an attribute of bikers and BDSM-lovers but it definitely can add some hot seduction to girly clothing.

Brigitte Bardot teamed leather cap with simple jumper and checked mini-skirt in old French movie L’ours et la poupee (1969).

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.

Blouse with bow adds softeness to formal outfit.

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.

Woman in the red boots

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.

Knot of Pearls

Get bored with your pearl strand? Time to tied the knot!

Here is Googie Withers in Night and the City (1950) for an inspiration.

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.

Make Your Simple Dress Great (again)

Think your dark little dress looks boring?

Use tip from Judith Anderson’ character from a classic noir movie Laura (1944) and decorate it with not 1 but 3 brooches.

By the way, you can find a lot of beautiful vintage pieces on Susan Caplan website.

I think 2 silver plated 1960s Vintage Trifari Brushed Leaf Brooches, gold plated 1960s Vintage Monet Swirl Brooch and Mango‘s Belt Cotton Dress will look very stylish together.

Stylish Fusion: Wild West leather + good old tweed + feminine shoes

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
