5 WAYS TO WEAR A SHIRT

When Xanthe and I played dress up a bit and ended up wearing our shirts in five completely different ways (backwards, as a skirt, off shoulder, etc.). A classic wardrobe staple, reinvented.

STYLE TALK WITH ELINOR

Tags: , , , , , , , , ,

Elinor Nystedt, Head of Creative Studio at the marketing department at Weekday, sure knows how to play with volumes, materials and (mostly muted) colors. When I first met her at an event in Amsterdam I was completely mesmerized by her awesome and super cool sense of style (sorry if I stared at you!) and – since we were visiting Stockholm anyway – I had to make sure to get to know all about her wardrobe secrets. If there’s one person in the entire world that I would instantly exchange wardrobes with…

JUMPING INTO SPRING

Tags:

Admittedly I was a bit early announcing Spring on March 1st. It is just that I find the first few days of Spring the most exciting days of the year. I would literally give up my birthday to get more first days of Spring. I would even go as far as saying that I might prefer those days when the sun starts hanging around much longer and the trees are in full bloom over Christmas. There, I said it.

AUGUST EDITORS LETTER

Tags: , , , , , , , ,

If I had to pick one, August would probably be my favorite of months (even though it means summer is almost over), especially now that I am spending more than half of it in a Soho apartment in New York. I guess spending three months in Los Angeles last winter got my urge to travel tickling. So how did New York happen?

SEASON CHANGE

Tags: , , , ,

It i funny how at the end of each cold season, I always long for the day to stuff my Winter coats in a deep dark corner of my home (in the hopes I’ll never need them again) and switch to hot season clothes. And then on the first properly warm day, I’m like: “What the h*** am I going to wear?”.

6 REASONS TO OWN A STRIPED SHIRT

While I am slowly making progress to bring some excitement into my built-around-basics wardrobe – or at least learning to play around a bit again and have fun when going through my clothing rack and cupboard drawers – the rest of the fashion enthusiasts seem to turn normcore.

6 REASONS TO OWN A STRIPED SHIRT

GRAY MATTER

Tags: , , , , , ,

So yep, starting that number 3 of my resolutions list (to wear less black) by going all over gray. Where a head to toe black look is móre than pretty common – at least in my wardrobe vocabulary – a monochromatic gray on gray (on gray) is much more of a statement. Ton sur ton (or tone on tone) is an age-old thing that is not to be called a trend since it never really comes and goes, but is actually here to stay. It is like color blocking, but with just one color family, sort of a patchwork of different hues. Because playing around with colors – other than black! – doesn’t mean things have to get instantly bright. One trick to make this work is to pick colors that are different enough to make it interesting, but close enough to still be able to call them the same color. Accessories may be from a whole ‘nother family, though a pair of shoes in one of the darkest hues of what you are working with is probably the freshest option. Now gray is obviously one of my personal favorites, but as long as there is a large contrast in materials (texture is your friend!) or a tiny pop in the form of a belt or clutch, this practically works with any color. Gray is just an easy and neutral way to get things started. Gray matter(s). PS: Major plus is they say monochromatic dressing makes you look taller and leaner. PPS: In Dutch/colder weather, I would have thrown on a gray blazer as an extra layer underneath a fuzzy winter coat in the same color and changed the shoes for black ankle boots.

ROCK BOTTOM CASUAL

Tags: , , , , , ,

Anyone growing on the Birkenstock thing going on here yet? My intentions when I clicked these somehow attractive monsters home were to exclusively wear them with the silk stuff in my wardrobe. You know, to keep things at least a tiny bit sartorially savvy. But then comfort kicked in and made me want to wear it with anything that I ruled out before. The first thing I do when I wake up in the morning is slip my feet in them to go search for my bathrobe (I always lose that thing (in other words: throw it on the floor somewhere very randomly), it is so frustrating) and – before I go all deep on the bathrobe stories – it is just very hard to take them off once your in. So first it was head to ankles chic and then boom, the Birks. Now it is some sort of chic to casual ombre (fancy blazer, even more fancy bag on top, casual jeans and the rock bottom casual Birks). Blazer, Maison Martin Margiela; Jacket, Weekday; Top, Weekday; Jeans, Diesel; Sandals, Birkenstock; Sunglasses, Ray-Ban; Bag, Céline.
