With the first glows of the Spring sun, you want to spend as much time out as you can and... it's time to change your wardrobe.
I mixed and matched together some of the available garments from our store to show you that looking good and stylish is not about having a lots of money but being creative, bold and courageous. Enjoy!
A feminine combination in pastels in the vibes of the 80s: Evan Picone pink pleated skirt, a white vintage top enhanced with beeds, Paolo Masi vintage leather "Flower" purse (sold), and a Prada ivory slingbacks.
Borrow your blazer from your grandmother, your jeans from your mother (or boyfriend), your top from your child and you are perfectly in line with Spring's latest trends. MaxMara yellow linen blazer, Dolce and Gabbana Junior floral cotton top (sold), with a Sam Edelman ripped jeans and Roccobarocco vintage belt, black ballerinas from Stuart Weitzman (available in the store).
Just comfy and cozy as if going to the coasts. This combination is a perfect example of how lucky can one be thrifting. The cotton striped suit is from Chadwicks, the purse is Paolo Masi from Italy (sold), the espadrilles are from Roxy and the T-shirt is from the local Shakespeare's theathre's printed shirt. You cannot beat me on this look being more economic!
Remember my post about fashion faux pas and leggings? Well, I said there are some good examples of how you can wear your leggings and this is one of them. Here I combined my Moschino brown leggings with a Franco Sarto mules, and a matching retro 50s style wool coat from Deréon, from Beyonce's fashion line. The blouse is a silk vintage inspired from Elizabeth and James from the Olsen Twins' fashion line and it covers the butt and the purse is a true vintage piece from the 40-50s. Sweet!
OK, 80s! Here wer are! A Lemon Grass velvet floral printed button down shirt combined with an oversized leather belt from Banana Republic (sold). Matched here with a Richard Warren black skirt and Via Spiga made in Italy black suede heels.
Golf or tennis? No problem. For more courageous people, combine your vintage pink cotton skirt from Allen Jolly with your favorite Google Staff T-shirt from Silicon Valley ( a selection is available in the store). Then have an oversized button-down shirt like this pink linen one from Zara (available in the store) and tie it around the waist. To complete your edgy but fun look, don't forget your favorite white ballerinas (available in the store) and possibly a Gucci pink cap.
Like someone who is just about to join a British hunting party. Olive green wool Trachten skirt from Austria (available in the store), olive green silk top from Linda Hutton from the 80s (sold), and olive green felt vintage hunting hat (available in the store) styled with a vintage Liz Claiborne colorful blazer(available in the store) and a vintage black purse (available in the store) and matching black Nine West suede heels.
One of my favorite look from the lookbook: an elegant but casual look for a busy working woman. Your favorite jeans with Ralph Lauren wool blazer, Zara pink button downs (available in the store), combined with a Roccobarocco big belt from the 90s, a black vintage clutch, and Nine West black suede high heels.
Le Petite Marseilles. I hope the French won't get offended but I felt very French in this combination: Jones striped top (available in the store), cotton, very comfy white linen and rayon Cubavera trousers (available in the store), and a vintage navy, striped Iceberg blazer (available in the store). I combined it with a Fossil leather purse in baby blue, a navy silk scarf around my neck, and gold Burberry espadrilles.
If you know Ines De La Fressange, you probably won't argue with me that she would be pleased by this combination. I feel like I successfully selected all the basics a (French) fashion-conscious woman should own: a pair of white jeans from Ann Taylor Loft (available in the store), a Banana republic beige V-neck sweater (available in the store), a striped button-down from Gap (available in the store), and a black skinny belt from Banana Republic (sold), a navy coat blazer from Iceberg (available in the store), a navy loafers from Ann Klein (available in the store), and straw bag from Kate Spade (available in the store) and a vintage straw hat. I am ready to the coasts!
This happens when you mix Italian and American designers:). A mom jeans from Levis, and an American vintage 'paprika' print cotton button down (available in the store) to match my Neapolitan silk ties with the paprika (available in the store) as well! Then, a Salvatore Ferragamo vintage blazer, a black Importina hat from California (available in the store), a black tessuto Prada purse and black leather mules from Esprit (available in the store) and your most unusual hybrid look is ready!
Fergie is in my mind whenever I look at this style. Not particularly my first choice but the pieces together or separately deserve a mention: the tie-dye capris are from Iceberg Jeans (available in the store), the pajama T-shirt is from Google from Silicon Valley , the jacket track suit is from Champion and was custom made for Rocklin (available in the store), the little town in California, and the peep-toe black leather heels are from Guess (available in the store).
The other big favorite: in spirit of the 50s. Vintage-inspired retro checkered wool jacket from Deréon, mom jeans from Levis (available in the store), an 80s white breaded belt, pink Zara button down shirt (available in the store), and red leather loafers from Ann Klein (sold).
