Denim on denim

To wear denim on denim is not that easy as it seems. It always looks so effortless and great on somebody else, but I find it really complicated and never can pull this look off. These two streetstyle pics prove (again) the opposite and are excellent examples of doing it right. Guess I still need a little practice...

R13 SS 2013

R13 is still one of my favorite jeans labels; amazing denim, perfect fit and with just the right details. And in a way they're pretty creative as well. Again, with the rigth details. Enjoy a few looks from their spring 2013 collection. Sadly still not available in the Netherlands, online at Shopbop and SSense

Emerald green

Cavalli Fall 2012 

Kenzo Spring 2013 

 Miu Miu Fall 2012

Acne Spring 2013

Pantone, the global authority on colour, named emerald green as thé colour of 2013. So what makes me curious at this point is who was first? Is it really Pantone or is it the gifted designer who's discovering the right track? Anyway, Cavalli, Kenzo, Miu Miu and Acne are designers with predicted talents concerning colour choice...

The Man Repeller

to repell ~ to cause aversion or distaste 

She's one of the most influential bloggers at the moment and yet she has launched her blog 'The Man Repeller' only two years ago. Leandra Medine's blog is mostly about trends that women love and men hate, where she features self-portraits wearing edgy and eccentric pieces that risk repelling the average man. Medine is very funny and perhaps that's just what differentiates her from all the other streetstyle blogs out there. 'I think what’s so interesting for people is that I don’t take it so seriously and yet I am still immersed in the fashion industry,' she said in an interview with the BOF (The Business of Fashion). 

About two months ago I wrote a blog for the Dutch fashion site Loves to Have about the statement Tee she was wearing during NYFW. It turned out to be a 30 euro American Apparel T-Shirt and she mixed it with a Marc Jacobs pants from the SS 2013 collection. Controversial and fashionable at the same time. Yes, The Man Repeller is definitely one of my favourites now!

Skinny jeans

This outfit appears to be quite ordinary, but then again, exactly its simplicity appeals to me the most. I adore skinny jeans and wear them all the time, despite being challenged by one of my best friends to wear something else. No chance! Skinny jeans makes your legs look longer and your outfit younger, so why bother going for another look? Photo by Vanessa Jackman

H&M Spring 2013

Let me show you a few pieces from the H&M's spring 2013 collection and as you can see, there are vibes from Balmain and Marant. I like the bomber jacket, the embellished sweater and this sweat biker jacket, but I have to be honest though. These H&M campaign pics look really great, they always do, but in nine cases out of ten the garments do not look that great. Unfortunately. Still, they're absolutely inspirational!

Oversized knit

Fashionblogger and style icon Elin Kling has collaborated with Guess by Marciano on a brand new capsule collection. Kling's designs stay true to the Guess brand as to her own minimalistic style. This oversized knit looks actually quite nice and comes in grey, black and mustard.
The collection launches in store and online in November.

Simple basics

A wardrobe based around a few simple basics, sounds easy but is in my opinion quite hard to achieve. The right pair of jeans, a black jacket, white T-Shirt, white blouse or that LBD... Not to mention in the winter a pair of boots or the perfect point-toe pumps. Many Parisian women, both young and older, have developed a clothing style which is unique; they own a handful of stylish clothes that perfectly meet their needs. And that's it. Wish I had this talent, although throughout the years I'm getting there...I think...I hope!

Crazy about Kenzo

What's up with that Kenzo Tiger sweater at the moment? This sweater has rocked a lot of streetstyle pics during the past fashion weeks, so it's definitely the hottest outerwear for Fall 2012. Creative directors Humberto Leon and Carol Lim took over at Kenzo and it seems that they have already started taking off the brand with their creativity and their marketing approach.
As this sweater is sold out everywhere (and quite expensive as well) it might be a good idea to wait for the special version of the Dutch Elle magazine, soon to be sold in their own webshop. Photos by Style.com

Say yes to sweat

As predicted, the sweater is back in business. Spotted at every single Fashion Week and not just the simple basic grey version (which is also great by the way). No, the street stylers were wearing sci-fi sweaters as well as the famous Kenzo tiger sweaters and on the S/S 2013 runway, sweaters with large quotes. So, are you going to catch up with this trend?

It's that time of year again...New York Fashion Week has officially started. Designers are showing their spring 2013 collection. Nowadays they'll inspire trends immediately and celebs will be wearing them before you can blink your eyes. Picked out three striking looks from the See by Chloé spring 2013 collection. Enjoy!

Chunky sweater

Although the weather is still quite nice for the time of the year, I do like to think about wether to buy one of those really big (knitted) sweaters for my winter wardrobe. I still have my doubts, most of the time a chunky sweater makes you lóók chunky as well...and that's certainly not the intention. So let's start with some inspiration first.... Please let me know which one you prefer. Photos by Stockholm Streetstyle.

A white shirt remains a classic piece of every woman's wardrobe and it will always be a crisp and extremely sharp style for every fashionista. Keep it minimalistic though and go for a timeless and versatile one. 

Okay, that being said, how is it possible that I'm still searching for the ultimate white shirt myself? I do have shirts in jeans, in baby blue and even in army green, but somehow I have never been able to find the right shirt in the colour white. So, if you have any suggestions, feel free to comment...;-)

The Good Genes

Is that Barry Hay in the backseat of that car? Yes, and that's about all I can say about this brand new denim label Good Genes. Born in the Bronx but definitely with a Dutch sauce. Exciting! 
Keep you posted!

Edgy R13

Bought my first R13 a few months ago and it's really my favorite jeans at the moment. It's a feminine skinny jeans with a little bit of rock 'n' roll, but still utterly stylish. Says it all. Here are a few looks from their fall 2012 collection with again some amazing pieces. Sadly not available in The Netherlands any more but of course happy to hear if you do come across them.
