Garance Doré X Marc O'Polo

For their Fall 2013 collection Swedish brand Marc O'Polo has collaborated with fashion blogger and illustrator Garance Doré. The pieces of this capsule collection resulted in high-quality T-Shirts and sweats with of course hand-drawn designs and statements. These items will be available from August 2013 in the Marc O'Polo stores as well as online. I want them all!

It's hard to believe, but Jeans, Fashion & Streetstyle will turn four years old this month. Almost 1000 blog posts have appeared here and that's quite a number when you think about it. The good thing about it is that the longer I've blogged, the easier and more enjoyable it has become. Especially as the number of readers has been growing every month...So it's time for a gift, I mean, to have a chance to gain one. Stay tuned!

Stripe a pose

Talked about stripes before, which makes sense as a striped T-Shirt is a musthave essential in your wardrobe. Easy to wear with anything, the possibilities are endless. So spice up your everyday look with your own stripe Tee. Shop your gently priced Tee at Zara or get a more posh one at A.P.C. store

This coming season it's all about feminine-masculine look as the menswear influences were visible at many fall 2013 shows. Think boyfriend suits with mafia inspiration, oversized coats and white shirts. Fabrics are mostly tweed, herringbone, pinstripes and Prince of Wales checks. Styles that could have been stolen from your boyfriend's closet. So it's not only about the boyfriend blazer we saw passing by in 2010, this time it's the whole package. Menswear is the name of the game!

White jacket

Let's talk about white jackets. Why? Because it's spring and about time to trade our black jacket for a white one. That said, how to rock a white jacket? This question showed up on my whatsapp last week, as my friend D had bought one during her short holiday in Riccione, Italy. Well, first of all, a white jacket can pull an outfit together and second it's neutral so it can be worn with many trends. So my simple fashion advice would be: wear a white jacket just as you would wear your black one.

Striped jeans

You  might think they are hard to wear, those bold striped pants, but the effect is actually really flattering and elongates your legs. Just make sure to find a pair in the right silhouette for your figure. Inspired? 
Shop your gently priced stripe at Zara or get a more posh one at Farfetch

Superior lightness

Who came up with Mother's Day and why? There are several historical versions of how Mother's Day is started, quite interesting actually. Ah well, not really the place to discuss that subject in depth. But I do like to share my Mother's Day presents I got from my three men. I'm very happy with my new Ray-Ban Liteforce Aviator made of a new bio-material used in aerospace, automotive and for medical technology. Now that's an interesting story. Have a nice sunday everyone!
