The Holy Grail of Fashion: The Trenchcoat

Coats/ Featured/ Rebel

The same applies to the classic trench coat. A permanent resident in your wardrobe and the ideal staple to stroll in the city when the autumnal wind is whistling or the spring rain is pouring down on you.

The best trench coats come in all shapes and sizes, from neutral shades in classic shapes to stand-out voluminous, textured and colourful styles guaranteed to liven-up your wardrobe. It’s a timeless classic I believe every girl should own.

What I wore: Trenchcoat by Jaeger, jeans by Max Mara Weekend, Shoes by Graceland

H&M Floral Bohemian Maxi Dress

 Sometimes H&M has something exciting that surprises me like this Gucci-esque  floral bohemian maxi dress.

Fast fashion items like this usually don’t survive more than a few washings. But that’s not the point. H&M outfits are not made for eternity, they are aone hit wonder and fun stuff – in demand only for a brief time.

I wore this H&M floral maxi dress recently on a sunny bicycle tour on Sunday.

How to wear a Millefleurs blouse?

Rebel/ Shirts

IMG_8366

How to wear a millefleurs blouse? Millefleurs is French and means thousand flowers,  a background or style of many different small flowers and plants.

IMG_8382 I wear: Millefleur Shirt by Hallhuber, Black Sunglasses by Paul Smith

Millefleur shirts are really cute and and very, very  feminine – usually way too romantic for me  but I do love the millefleurs prints and pattern. If you  are more of a Rebel type and not 100% Romantique than you have to clash your millefleur blouse with some cool girl accessories to avoid the frumpy housewife look!

I wear: Floral Blouse by Ralph Lauren, black Skinny Jeans by H&M

For me there is only one style combination of a millefleur shirt that works:

Cool Jeans (for me skinny fit), Converse high top in black, white or blue and edgy sunglasses- see Alexa Chung, there is nothing to add, she nails it yet again!

Never say Never in Fashion

Denim/ Featured/ Rebel

Streetstyle_Boyfit_denim

I usually only wear skinny jeans, but recently  I’ve become a believer in boyfriend jeans. I’ve long ignored this fashion piece which has become a staple thanks to its relaxed fit and lived in look.

How could that happen?

“Never say never in Fashion, because you’ll be wearing “Never” in two years time.” (Alexa Chung) I said “never” to Boyfriend Jeans but if you never try, you will never know – I learned it’s working for fashion too.

Boyfit jeans look great paired with everything from a basic T-shirt to a chic Blazer, and they lend versatility in terms of shoe choice: you can wear them with everything from Converse to sky-high stilettos or flats.

Black or Beige Trenchcoat?

Coats/ Featured/ Rebel

Do you prefer your trench coat in black or beige?

With it’s classic shape, timeless appeal and effortless chic, the trench coat is a classic outerwear piece for transitioning from summer to fall or from winter to spring .

For over 15 years I’ve owned a beige Burberry trench coat.  I never thought about a black trench coat up until this spring, when I was looking for a more subtle, sexy and feminine version of the trench. With a black trench coat, I could be that sexy French girl, avec tousled hair!

Each year around Easter my inner child talks to me: I need some bunny ears because some things never change. Bunny ears are not only Playboy fashion. The little accessory is a playful twist on a head with different attitudes cute, funny and yes, so damn sexy. Let’s have look on my favourite bunny ears pics.

Romantique and Rebel Style French Beret

Accessoires/ Featured/ London/ Rebel/ Romantique

French Beret Street style London

The fashion sisters are back together in London again! When we brain stormed subjects for a new sisters fashion blog post, we couldn’t wait to show our readers  two different styles on how to wear the classic French beret. Romantique or Rebel, which one are you?

Rebel:

The French beret is back on the fashion scene with a vengeance! It was seen on all catwalks, from Saint Laurent to Gucci. In my opinion, the beret was unfairly underestimated for much too long. It’s such a simple accessory yet receives maximum impact. Women wearing berets looks intelligent as well as cute. But when you’re in your mid forties, do you still want to look like a girly student? Can one be too old for the beret? I don’t think so! The gallic hat is timeless and the secret is all in what you pair the it with.

Gucci-Runway-RTW-Spring-2016-Milan-Fashion-Week

Gucci lovingly styled the beret girly with ruffles and a pussy bow blouse.  I’m not a girl anymore and don’t want to pretend to be one, so this style is out of the question for me.

On the other hand, the Saint Laurent’s beret runway style has nothing playful or girly about it. The beret stands for confidence and nonchalance – attributes us women over 45+ can relate to easily!

French Beret Street style London

Rebel is wearing: Leopard ankle boots by Neil Barrett, high  waisted skinny jeans “Maria” by J Brand, bomber jacket by Kuyichi, jewel collar by River Island, embellished straw bag by Sicily Bag, beret by Seeberger.

Romantique:

I love the Parisian, classic French Style so a beret is a must-have item in my wardrobe. It’s not a fickle, trendy accessory but a timeless piece that never goes out of style. I own the beret in two colours: In classic navy blue and in orange-red to brighten up darker or monochrome outfits.

I love to pair the beret with classic French pattern such as  Breton sailor stripes or Vichy gingham checks. Add a feminine lace collar et voila, you instantly exude French charm!
