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.
Cute Mara&Mine‘s suede Simone Koi Fish Slipper – Navy Velvet & Gold and Montana Pouch Bag will look perfectly with simple clothes like Bailey 44‘s Sarah Sweatshirt and Atelier Gardeur‘s beige Dina2 jeans.
put B@sh‘s bright Kamis Shirt and white flair Csoul Jeans on your body, Swedish Hasbeens‘ Combo Slip In clogs on your feet, Noonday Collection‘s Cairn Earrings in your years and take exotic Cult Gaia‘s Lilleth – Brown Stain bamboo bag in your hands.
Modern fashionistas almost forgot about pearls and that’s their big mistake – these gems (real and imitation) reflect the light and bring luminous glow to your skin.
That’s why genius artist Jan Vermeer decorated his most famous model with a pearl earring.
True diva Audrey Hepburn shines in Bvlguri’s necklaces in Bloodline (to be honest, this movie movie is awful and even miss Hepburn’s charm and her stylish wardrobe and posh jewellery can’t save it).
Pearls on Debora Kerr’s draw attention to her beautiful shoulders and dress in Bonjour tristesse (1958) and heroine of Janet Leigh uses them to make her simple sweater more elegant in Touch of Evil (1958).
So as you can see pearl necklces have a wonderful quality – you can wear them with all kinds of clothing – black-tie, office and casual.
Any of these 4 pretty pieces can add a hint of feminine chic to your look (clockwise): Ben-Amun‘s Long Pearl Strand Neclace Chezh Glass Pearls and Swarowsky crystals, Crystal Leaf Marquise Cut Station Pearl Necklace, Mastoloni‘s Multicolor Keshi Freshwater Pearl Necklace and Tasaki‘s Sliced Necklace.
Not sure that pearls and jeans suit each other?
Here are Nectar De Stagni’s Shark Teeth & Cultured Fresh Water Pearl Necklace, Cheap Monday‘s Tight Pure Blue Jeans, Fonnesbech‘s Ella Shirt White and Tieks‘ Biscotti Patent ballerinas for an inspiration.
And without any doubt pearls necklace is a perfect partner for a coctail or evening dress.
If you want to look sexy and classy at the same time decorate Ali & Jay‘s grey Wan’t Be Silensed Sheath or Phase Eight‘s red Astrid Maxi Dress with necklaces from Tasaki‘s Sliced collection.
You are young, able to dance and drink whole night long and New Year’s eve is around the corner? Dress yourself as a Disco Queen and go wild! Because in the blink of an eye you’ll notice that you prefer pyjamas, bed and silence to sexy clothes, dance floor and loud music.
I guess Lena Hoschek‘s 3 quater sleeve Hepburn Jacket Rose, Uterque‘s Silver Laminated Jeans, Jeffrey Campbell‘s Tynes pumps and Butler & Wilson‘s Crystal Flowers & Leaves Bracelet With Attached Ring and Swarowski Crystal Multi Animal Clutch Bag will look great on a party beast.
High-tech fabrics, wool, denim and genuine leather will help you to conquer cold in comfort and style.
The Very Warm‘s Kenai – Midnight parka + Adrian Goldschied‘s The Leila Chevron Sweater (70% alpaca, 30% silk) + Atelier Gardeur‘s Zuri jeans + Bed Stu‘s Della boots = casual outfit for freezing day.
Fashion snobs often say that they will never wear bags made from polyurethane (PU) even under threat of death. But style is not about status and prestige, it’s about “this thing suits me, it’s really mine and I will wear it with aplomb”.
Any of these 3 made from PU and cork Pixie Mood‘s bags – (from top to bottom) Claudia Crossbody Bag – Cream, Ophelia Crossbody – Ruby Red and Bernice Drawstring Bag – Nude – will look pretty with Adriano Goldschmied‘s The Cara Short Coat, The Satin Prima cigarette jeans and Trippen‘s Knight f boots.
You can create many cute outfits mixing handcrafted Justin Boots, Lee‘s jeans and Alanui‘s cashmere cardigans.
Midas yellow /Angel blue with horse riding Indians will look stylish with blue Easy Fit Frenchie Bootcut jeans and Gemma Brown booties;
Lapponia white cardigan – with beige Relaxed Plain Front Pants and Faxon Blue;
Beluga blue with stripes – with black Slimming Fit Jade Legging and Elina Redstone boots.
German brand Jacques Britt offers us pretty tops, Chinese Shiatzy Chen – black Silk Pleated Wide-leg Pants and Drop Crotch Jeans, Italian Aldo Brue – comfortable Derby and suede Moccasin shoes, American Ghurka – handcrafted black Charlie Leather Satchel and beige Leather Sling Backpack. And you know what is the best thing about all this jazz stuff? You can easily mix all these things as you like and look stylish.
Those who live in Central Europe have had only few days to enjoy sunny weather this summer (maybe August will heat us up, who knows?) and soon we will have no other choice but to put our boots and heavy jackets on.
So there is an outfit for the first chilly days.
Schott‘s 525W leather jacket, Triarchy‘s Indigo Skinny jeans, Red Wing Herritage‘s 3406 Clara boots (handmade, by the way) and bright spot – Bed Stu‘s red Half Moon cross-body bag (handmade too).
