autumn look #20

The last look for this month is based on a coat with a lovely vintage inspired print and shape by Stella Jean and a petrol colored top by Prabal Gurung. The colors of the look vary from a light ice blue to turquoise and petrol which are emphasized also in the accessories. I think the colors come out best with a simple and elegant black as a contrast, so trousers and shoes are kept very simple, but stylish.

autumn look #19

Look #19 is a combination in black and yellow with floral prints by Erdem. I have combined it once in pastel shades of yellow and as an alternative with a strong neon yellow. I love the bag by Proenza Schouler in sheep skin look. The pastel shade works nicely together with the fragile, transparence of the dress.
The big neon yellow earrings and the necklace create a nice contrast to the black silk top by Bottega Veneta and give the look some playfulness. Otherwise just mix and match!

autumn look #18

Autumn look #18 or when cosmic blue meets porcelain prints. The mini dress and the evening gown with the prints reminding of Dutch porcelain are both from Valentino. I have styled the dresses with bright blue shoes and a bag to emphasize the color theme. As the right dress is an evening gown I have chosen some opulent jewelry by Shourouk to finish the look. A nice detail of the mini dress is the white collar with cut-outs which actually works like jewelry as well.

autumn look #17

Look #17 is a combination in black and gold with the emphasize of different patterns, shapes and materials. The two dresses couldn't be different. One leather mini dress with asian inspired embroideries by Balmain and a flowing draped dress with golden flower prints by Saint Laurent. I think both dresses like to be styled with some rock attitude (if you click on the links, you will notice what I mean!), so I chose ankle boots and matching pumps for the two looks and bags with an interesting shapes and patterns. The jewelry with geometric shapes stays within the same color code. Once again two looks where you can mix and match with the accessories.

autumn look #16

Look #16 is a combination in grey. And yes, people who know me will scream out now: GREY?!? But I liked the special shape of the dress by Antonio Berardi and took the challenge to create an elegant look in grey. The calmness in the color choice also invites to play around with some bling-bling elements which come here with the sequined bag by Dolce & Gabbana and the opulent necklace by Gucci.

autumn look #15

Look #15 is a combination in burgundy with golden details. Though it is basically combined within the same color, here the mix of different material creates an interesting contrast. Jacket and pencil skirt are both from Burberry Prorsum and while the jacket comes in a heavy leather with python print, the translucent skirt seems brings some lightness and shine. Both together create a modern look which emphasizes the waist and give a feminine shape. The blouse with the hearts give the look a playful touch. Bag and shoes emphasize the elegant note of the look.

autumn look #14

I fell in love with the mosaic prints of Dolce & Gabbana for the fall. For the look #14 I have chosen one of the simpler dresses with less iconography and matching bag. I have combined it with my favorite color red. The outcome is an elegant, festive look in the primary colors red, yellow and blue and a mix of prints and lace.

autumn look #13

A black and white inspired look with an ankle length dress by Miu Miu and a cosy wool jacket by Balmain. The shoes and bag are from Charlotte Olympia again. I have chosen the crochet pattern of the shoes to lighten up the strictness of the black and white theme with some florals and the bag is simply fun. CUT!
