It might sound a bit strange but wearing pants and jacket you can highlight your femine side at most.
Zimmermann’s black Bowerbird Blazer + Cushnie et Ochs‘s very sexy Gloss Jersey Twisted Bodysuit and black High-Wasted Pants (there is a white option too) + John Fluevog’s pumps Andromeda + Valextra‘s blue Twist Pochette + Ricardo Basta‘s Dragon Brooch = posh and at the same time elegant outfit special occasions.
Those, who think that things made in China are cheap and never stylish, are definitely wrong. Just have a look at Sandriver‘s cashmere’s clothes and accessories.
Pure Cashmere Suit Coat will look pretty Paule Ka‘s Floaty Trousers In Satin-Backed Crepe, Michele Lopriore‘s suede booties Stivaletto tacco medio, and Rag & Bone‘s Compass Crossbody bag.
And if you want to try a la Russe style go for Sandriver‘s Elegant Printed Cashmere Shawl With Fur Trim and Two-Coloured Pure Cashmere / Two-Way Sports Head (it can be easily turn into a scarf).
Soon or later spring will be back (hopefully winter won’t be cold and long) and you can run arround in The North Face‘s pale green Lisie Raschel Jacket and grey Half Dome Pants, Tretorn‘s pink sneakers Rawlings3 and Timbuk2‘s tricolor Classic Messenger Bag.
In times of the Soviet Union for most of people it was very difficult to get latest fashion clothes and women had no other choice but to learn how to make something from nothing. From one hand such situation was very depressive from other it stimulated imagination and helped to develop your own designers skills and sense of style – each coin has 2 sides, right?
I remember when I was a child in 80ies in the USSR corduroy pants were in the list of the most desirable fashion things: if you got them you automatically join the club of stylish girls and boys.
Volcom‘s corduroy Wale Watching Pants, Zimmermann‘s Karmic Bell Sleeve Blouse, Chie Mihara‘s Zalena Brown shoes and Melinda Maria‘s big Sophie Pod Ring Gold Coral White CZ will make a pretty retro-outfit.
If you believe that trends come and go but style lasts forever, have a look at Adam Neeley‘s jewellery: in my opinion, those pieces would look great on you now and 50 years later on your granddaughter.
Bird Of Fire (up) and Divina pendants from Couture collection and By Johnny‘s Raffia Drop Flair Strapless will highlight beautiful neck and chiseled shoulders of their owner.
Tango Diamond Earrings and Uno Ring With Diamond from Adam Neeley‘s Designer collection will make a perfect team with Aquascutum‘s Kelso Cashmere Jacket, Simmons Cigarette Trousers, Ennis Fitted Blouse and Duccio Venturi‘s DV30 Double pumps.
Francesca Grima‘s hi-tech inspired Stackable Pixel Ring Set caught my eyes.
I guess this piece and Rose Gold Pixel Hoop Earrings by Francesca Grima will look great with Aquasqutum‘s Verne Jacket, cotton Pendelton Tax Pique Shirt and Simmons Cigarette Trousers. Pierre Hardy‘s Laser Pumps add feminine note to this outfit.
And one of clutches – Candy Minaudiery by Judith Leiber or Enamel Lip Clutch Bag by Butler & Wilson – will show that you have a good sense of humour.
Lovely birds on Winnie Blouse (66% viscose, 34% silk) by Elizabeth & James will look pretty with Wide Leg Trousers by Marks & Spencer, Le Missile – Celestial Blue slippers by Bobbies and red Arabesque Shopping Bag by Repetto.
Crepe A-Line Skirt by Marks & Spencer, Mila pumps by Spanish brand Magrit and Saffron Embossed Croc Eloise Tote by Elizabeth & James will make a stylish company for this blouse too.
