Paule Ka’s Skirt In Tailored Cotton and Satin-Baked Crepe Top are perfect choice for a classic office outfit but you can easily turn them into a stylish cocktail outfit, just decorate them with Rene Coavilla‘s chic Satin and Leather Court Shoes and Theo Fennell‘s extremely cute Crowned Kingfisher Brooch.

Overall Plays Leading Role

Bright silk Overrolls Dakan by Mes Demoiselles will look pretty with LeJu‘s Beige and Golden Yellow Vegatable Ivory Statement Necklace with Agate Detail, Brighton‘s mood lifting Staci G Shopper and Chloe Gosselin‘s Bryonia sandals.

I like stilettos with multicolor straps, comfortable silver sandals, white patent leather muli and red suede oxford shoes.

Loriblu‘s motley sandals (low heel version of stilettos with multicolor straps) will make a cute casual outfit with Basler‘s shirt dress and Marimekko‘s Kirjo/Heli cotton bag.

Italian pumps and clutch in printed red leather will decorated Tara Jarmon‘s Cream Crepe Sleevless Dress perfectly.

By the way, you can easily replace Elsi Tassel Tie Tunic with other Lemlem‘s clothing:
White long Zana Caftan, navy striped Edna Maxi Sun Dress or blue Oni Romper.

Leather Jacket plays leading role

Schott’s brown leather jacket definitely belongs to the category “timeless stuff”. Schott’s jacket + Jordache‘s classic jeans Farrah-Hi-Rise Straight Leg + John Fluevog‘s shoes AYN + Lisabag‘s green backpack + Hawkers‘s sunglasses Carbon Black – Emerald One = pretty casual outfit for a stroll in the sity.

Super feminine in pants

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.

About Jayne Mansfield and her wardrobe in The Girl Can’t Help It

1mjj

For a long time Jayne Mansfield was for me an epitome of vulgarity but then Kardashian family came in the limelight I saw The Girl Can’t Help It. First I liked her beautiful cosumes created by Charles Le Maire and after I read more about Jayne and change my opinion of her. Miss Mansfield was very intelegent and talented: she spoke Spanish and German, played violin and piano.

I think one of the main reasons Jayne didn’t get recognition she deserves is that she didn’t meet her Pygmalion director or producer who would take proper care of her career, like Carlo Ponti did for Sophia Loren. That’s why in her filmogrphy very few high-profile movies and The Girl Can’t Help It is definitely on top of this short list.

Jayne Mansfield wardrobe in this movie is an excellent inspiration for those girls with enviable hourglass figures.

The decoration on Jayne’s hips makes her moves even more sexy.

Jayne holds 2 bottles of milk close to her famous assets – without a doubt directer and screen writer Frank Tashlin had a perfect sense of humour.
