Fashion Sisters: Swapping Style

Coats/ Denim/ Rebel Alexa/ Romantique/ Wardrobe

Zebra print denim and red gingham coat

Romantique and Rebel – that’s us, sisters with different styles.

Rebel’s signature look is  minimalistic and boyish. Her go-to pieces are biker jackets, high heels, skinny jeans, pop colours, bold pattern and Joan Crawford movies.

Romantique lives for cats, pastel colours, vichy gingham pattern, skirts, ballerinas and ruffled blouses.

So what happens when we swap roles for the day? This is exactly what we wanted to find out when we met in Berlin last week.

I styled Rebel in a red butter-wouldn’t-melt vichy gingham coat straight out of Grimm’s fairytale Little Red Riding Hood, from Max & Co. Completing the outfit is a romantic straw bag from Le Voyage en Panier, pointy flats from AGL Attilio Giusti Leombruni, powder blue shirt from Geox and black denim from J Brand. A true Romantique outfit, don’t you think?

Rebel took me out of my comfort zone by styling me much more boldly  than my usual:  I am wearing graphic skinny jeans in zebra print from H&M, metallic sweater from Set, black ballet pumps from Rouge Bunny Rouge and red cross body bag from Picard.

I felt quite empowered in this unusual outfit! This  little foray into Rebel territory opened my mind to new fashion horizons. I think I might be dipping my toe back into this pool, stay tuned!

    You both look very comfortable in your other than usual styles, The zebra pants and top is a great casual look much like I would love for weekends.
