We all know those days; the ones where you wake, sift through your overflowing wardrobe, and there is nothing to wear. Nothing seems to align with your mood, fit with your new coat, complement your work shoes. The day has barely begun, you’re late for work and already pangs of stress are beginning! That’s the moment where I like to cut through the complexity and grab a simple dress. A dress so that I don’t have to worry about matching top to bottom. No pattern, just a mono coloured fresh hue complementing my skin, cut in a comfortable timeless shape. This is where classic brands like Max Mara are your best friends. No matter what the fashion fad du jour says, you can always rely on a simply cut dress in their collection. Jackie Kennedy knew that looking flawless is about the classic looks. Mind you she did live in the 50s / 60s , having the best fashion of the decade at her fingertips! Good news for us is that 60s fashion looks incredibly modern today. Look at Twiggy and Grace Coddington below. These two would rock any street style competition in 2016!
I’m wearing bordeaux coloured Oxford lace-ups to prevent this dress from looking too sugary sweet. Hand embroidered metal bracelet by Camille Enrico. I’m in love with these hand embroidered metal bracelets by the French designer. A piece of jewellry close to my heart as it was a present from the team I worked with previously in London.
