“All blogs post the same stuff”- yes and no but she doesn’t know Romantique and Rebel. Most fashion blogs I know post “copy and paste” photos from other blogs or magazines and a meaningless comment. That’s it. Our private cameras are always stand by if Romantique and Rebel talk about fashion.
We don’t work in the fashion industry, or sit in the front row, we do our very own fashion thing and we show and share it every day. We post daily about our wardrobe in London and Hamburg and everyone can see what we have chosen to wear – R&R is not a copy and paste Fashion Blog.

Yes, sometimes, clothes from H& M are well made and last more than just one season! It’s hard to believe, my blue cotton skirt from H&M is 12 years old and definitely vintage!
Some seasons I haven’t worn the skirt and that shows once again you should not always stick to the rule in your closet to throw anything away that you haven’t worn for 6 months. And a navy blue pleated skirt is a must stay in your wardrobe . And by the way, men like girly skirts. Funnily enough, most compliments I get whenever I wear the H&M Skirt.

How to do Haute Casual – Heels off, Trainers on because this is no time for pencil skirts and lace. Haute Casual is not a trend, more a feeling of what is utterly right for now. To study “haute casual” take a lesson in Isabel Marant. It’s all inhaling unpredictable cool.
High with low. Yes, it’s a studied look, but the effect must be spontaneous. Off is just right.

Monochrome dressing is nothing new.
Dressing in a single hue from top to bottom, especially with the recent predilection for vibrant pigments, is something to be strongly considered. For the next coming weeks I will be doing Monochrome Days; picking a single colour and showing examples of off-the-runway and on-the-street outfits in an effort to inspire dressing around a single shade.
If you need sometimes a break from all the colorful clothes, floral, batik, stripes and animal pattern and you should focus more on minimalist looks with monochrome basics and start with the timeless colour blue.
