Pink Berlin Street Style

Berlin/ Jumpers/ Rebel/ Travel/ Wardrobe

Pink is not really new because remember on “Funny Face” and the song “Think Pink” or “Schoking Pink” by Elsa Schiaparelli – Pink is a Fashion classic colour and has a huge comback in 2012! I love the pink black wall at East Side Gallery in Berlin. Such a stylish pink photo setting you can only find in Germany’s hottest City!

Did you already purchase many different pink items for this summer? Do you need some inspirations?

What about suede pink Pretty Ballerinas?

Or rather this Lanvin Pumps?

Maybe a coat and a Céline Bag?

Try it with a hot pink lipstick!

What I wear according to the pink wall:

Animal Top by Zara, J Brand Black, Cashmere Jacket by Allude, BCBG Sandals, Céline Sunglasses in soft salmon pink

Try neon accessories

Accessoires/ Denim/ Jumpers/ Romantique

Not sure about how to pull off the neon trend? Me too, I don’t like too obvious “look at me” neon colors.  Try just a hint of neon as part of a knock-out element of your classic outfit, like a belt, shoes or handbags.

Above and below: My neon pink belt is from Buzzard, white trousers with heart pocket detail from Love Moschino, nude Pretty Ballerinas and straw handbag from Sophia C.

My pink sunglasses are from Celine, powder pink cashmere twinset from TK Maxx

Straw and  a dash of neon: Straw bag from Rebecca Minkoff with neon yellow leather details. Neon show stopper heels

Zara’s Animal Top

Jumpers/ Rebel/ Wardrobe

I can’t resist the big cat prints because it is irresistible ultra-glamorous – just animal magnetism.

And of course I had to try this amazing Animal top from Zara! I could not leave it in the fitting room because the cut is so classic that I can mix it in all directions. It’s not single piece but multifunctional.

From skinny belts, scarves  to daring printed pants and skirts, take inspiration from all these gorgeous street style looks.

Animal Prints are really timeless if you combine your wardrobe with style – in doubt, always less than more.

Mix & Match

Jumpers/ Rebel/ Skirts/ Trousers/ Wardrobe

Der Mustermix Look sieht auf Steet Style Photos und in Zeitschriften einfach toll aus – Punkte mit Schlange, Blumen mit Streifen, Leo mit garfischen Prints. Wie sieht so ein Look an einem selbst aus ohne sich verkleidet zu fühlen.

Etwas Mut braucht es schon, denn man fällt definitiv im Straßenbild auf und sticht etwas aus der Masse heraus. Die Farben der Muster sollten untereinander harmonieren und auf Schuhe und Tasche abgestimmt sein, mit einer dunklen Farbe kann man auch ganz gut abtönen und Ruhe in den Look bringen.

I WEAR: Aphorism Skirt, Sem Per Lei Jumper, Tod’s Sandals with snake leather

Fashion 60 Plus

Bags/ Jumpers/ Rebel/ Romantique/ Trousers/ Wardrobe

Fashion is not only for young people as all the magazines and billboards want us to believe.

The right to be fashionable and to have fun in what you wear and how you express yourself is not only owned by the young girls.
Marc Jacobs dedicated his last collection to mature women, taking inspiration from the style blog “Advanced Style” by Ari Seth Cohen.
Get inspired by our mum who is 61 years old and from who we inherited our interest and fun in all things fashionable.
Romantique:      What can you tell us about fashion in the later years of life?
Mummy R&R:    
As I got older, I became more confident in myself and more secure. I don’t get influenced and pressured  by trends anymore like I used to 30 years ago. I only participate in trends that I know suit me. For example, the wrap dress made famous by Diane Fuerstenberg has been hailed as the ultimate flattering dress for all shapes of women  in countless books, magazines and blogs for years. Still, I know a wrap dress isn’t my style,  because on me, it accentuates little “rolls” and a low V-Neck doesn’t suit me as well as a boat or round neck. 20 years ago, I might have bought a dress like this because it had been hyped up so much, despite knowing that the style didn’t suit me.
Romantique:     How would you describe your style?
Mummy R&R:    
I like to wear classic pieces and mix them up with a few trendy items. For example, I would team a classic pencil skirt with bold coloured tights; bright pink, purple or orange for example. To complete the outfit, I would wear a simple one coloured sweater or shirt.
Romantique:    What about accessories and handbags?
Mummy R&R:   I don’t like wearing too much jewellery as it reminds me of old fashioned women. I do love big earrings though, particularly made of gemstones.
I also love well crafted handbags, I recently bought a heavenly brown leather handbag from Celine (seen in the photo) in Sardinia. Handbags are so important as they can spice up any outfit, just like shoes. When wearing an excellent handbag it’s all about the way you wear it: Wear it with charisma and,very important, with a straight posture oozing confidence.
Mummy R&R, thank you for the interview!
In the pictures, Mummy R&R is wearing: Wool / Stretch trousers from Bogner, Bright orange Cashmere cardigan from Allude, orange suede jacket from Pielini, leather handbag from Celine, white bow shirt from TK Maxx and ballet shoes from Pretty Ballerina.

Animal Sweater

Jumpers/ Rebel/ Trousers/ Wardrobe

Certain trends are fashion staples and will always be our obsession. These trends never fail to excite us, they never die out completely as they exist in our wardrobe in some form or the other – the animal prints.

Wearing animal prints has never been out of fashion. The rareness and the majestic character of wearing the animal print have been seen as a status symbol. It takes a confident woman to carry off the bold, chic and sexy adjectives that come with adorning the animal prints.

I WEAR:

Cashmere sweater Allure animal print wrong way, so the wide neck is on the back. To the bright 7/8 silk taffeta pants I have consciously chosen espandrilles because the pants reminds me of the 60s Saint Tropez style – so, ready for a boat trip in Southern Europe!

Black Turtleneck Sweater

Icons/ Jumpers/ Rebel/ Wardrobe

Marion Cotillard is stunning in that beauty photo shoot ahead of the release of her Batman adventure.

Black is best: Even the beauty’s lips are peachy nude to keep all colour out of the shot!

Marion’s latest photos gave me the inspiration to write about timeless black turtleneck sweater.

The black turtleneck sweater

Audrey Hepburn turned a simple black turtleneck into a chic staple. Whether you have a big or small chest, a turtleneck is flattering. Try to find one that stretches to fit your body but will not lose its shape. Hint: The better the fabric, the easier this is. It’s the perfect layering piece since it can be worn alone and will go great with just about anything.

Marilyn in a black turtleneck sweater. Black always works, independent of your hair color. A turtleneck gives you clean, sharp lines. Everyone looks good now and get the timeless chic of all the icons like Jackie Kennedy and highlights your face in the center of attention.

For a luxurious touch, try definitely a cashmere turtleneck.

Modern Times!

Black daily outfits for summer, not only for studio beauty shoots!

White on White

Blazer / Jackets/ Denim/ Jumpers/ Rebel/ Trousers/ Wardrobe

The one trend taking over spring fashion week 2012 is none other than white on white. I’m all about white on white; however, just be careful you don’t look like a snowflake!

She is on the withe track, if you can’t resist a splash of colour, reds and oranges will complement your neutrals.

  Easy elegance can be found in monochromatic outfits this summer. For some of us, seem like a small challenge trying to pull off an all white look.

How to wear: I WEAR: H&M Jacket, Jaggy pants, Nude Pretty Ballerinas, white classic bag

Do mix up different tones of white for a sophisticated look. Perfect the white on white look by wearing a fitted dress or pants and blazer in this color.

Don’t be afraid to wear all white, keep hair pulled back and make up to a minimum.
