Underwear as outerwear

Lingerie was all over the catwalks for SS/10, and not just on Victoria Secrets. A lot of designers used underwear as outerwear, for instance Marc Jacobs, Stella McCartney, Dolce & Gabbanna and Antonio Berardi. They've all done so very elegantly, by keeping the colours neutral and giving it a soft look, rather than a trashy one. The key is to pair a silk camisole with trousers and long jackets, so that you don't bare too much. Keep the make-up to a minium as to avoid looking more Courtney Love than old Hollywood (There's nothing wrong with looking like Courtney by the way, just make sure you know what signals you are sending out.)

But for partying you can go all out. I love the L.A-look that's popped up on a lot of streetstyle-blogs the last year. Black lace, bodys, dark make-up and messy hair, paired with a fake furcoat. That's how I wanna party this winter.

Colourful Gray

So yeah, I thought my hang-up on the 80s were almost over. How long can you walk around in sheer pastels, light pink lips and mashed-up patterns anyway?

Then came Louise Gray's 2010 Spring/Summer collection, and my crush was BACK. It's a bit cold for it now, but come May I'll be sporting this look for sure. The colours look so randomly put together (of course they're not) but it somehow works. Love the styling as well. Suddenly the 80s feels right AGAIN.

Look of the day

Picture: Marc by Marc Jacobs

I absolutely love this look from Marc by Marc Jacobs. Vibrant colours will get me through the winter. The combination of THAT blue and THAT pink is just pure coolness.

It's dandy!

Whatever happened to the word "dandy"? No one ever uses it anymore. Well, I'm gonna bring it back as of now. The reason? This amazing photo shoot from the latest Dazed & Confused, of course! Entitled "We can be heroes" it showcases simple elegance, inspired by old Hollywood, and amazing hair cuts. It's dandy. There. I said it.
