The French brand Isabel Marant is among my absolute favorites. I love the jackets! They are an absolute basic!

Trending for fall 2014 – the wrap mini skirt

Let’s continue the makeover of the skirts department of our wardrobe for the upcoming fall. As we already discussed in a previous post midi surely was the major skirt length that was snapped by street style photographers during the most recent fashion month! But somehow major online stores didn’t feel that this skirt length is going to become a mainstream favorite any time soon and continued to strongly focus on mini skirts. So how to wear them and which ones are the best this fall?

Finding the perfect shirt taking inspiration from Alma Jodorowsky

Alma Jodorowsky, the French actress who played a role in “Blue Is the Warmest Colour” , proofed that she does not only look beautiful but also has great fashion taste. Totally effortless she combined pieces from different looks from the Chanel Dubai show in order to make them parts of her very own outfit for her front row appearance at the Chanel Couture presentation yesterday. For me the standout of her ensemble definitely was the cream white shirt with the tail at the back. Super simple, absolutely elegant and timeless – that’s how a great wardrobe basic should look like. So where to shop for a perfect shirt like the one worn by Alma Jodorowsky?

Emmanuelle Alt street style inspiration from Louis Vuitton cruise Monaco

Whenever, I see Emmanuelle Alt streetstyle photos I am totally captivated by the simplicity of her look. Its almost all basics but mixed in the way she mixes and worn in the way she wears they have such a great effect. After being a little amazed to see her wearing a black blazer, which is likely to be the Isabel Marant  x HM blazer from last fall, for Chanel cruise in Dubai and again at Louis Vuitton cruise in Monaco I was happy to find a photo of the total Monaco look on style.com today. Do you know which 3 important styling “rules” we can learn from her look!?

Repetition reloaded Emmanuelle Alt @LV cruise Monaco

I recently wrote about French Vogue editor in chief, Emmanuelle Alt’s sartorial choice for Chanel cruise Dubai presentation. She simply went for the black Isabel Marant pour H&M blazer she had been worn several times before. I immediately liked her decision, because she stayed true to her style, although everyone around her was in Chanel. However, I was a little amazed when I saw the following photos of her while attending the Louis Vuitton cruise 2015 presentation in Monaco yesterday….

Repetition is a sign of style – Emmanuelle Alt @ Chanel resort Dubai

Yesterday, I spotted a photo of Emmanuelle Alt, one of my favorite style icons, upon arrival at the Chanel resort Dubai show on style.com.  As always she looked super effortless in a black blazer worn above a simple T-shirt chinched at the waist with a simple Isabel Marant belt. But stop – look again …. The blazer has a really broad shawl collar, a white lining – Guess I have seen it before …

Double strap Birkenstocks versus crisscross sandals and T bar

Phoebe Philo started the bulky flat sandal trend with her spring 2013 collection one year ago. As Karl Lagerfeld said “There is not beauty without some strangeness in the proportions!” one year ago the ugly shoe trend conquers spring 2014 – It needed some time to become mainstream. However, even when buying an intentionally ugly shoe some considerations have to be made to wear it in style instead of sloppy or bucolic. Double strap shoes, crisscross sandals and T-bars are on offer. Which style to choose mainly depends on the shape of the feet….
