All In The Details Just sleeving my life

0

Lately, I found a new obsession with sleeves. Such an overlooked part of a garment – but not this season. This season it’s all about sleeves and the details they come with. The larger and more dramatic, the better.

My three new favourites:

  1. ‘French cuffs’ – Larger and more structured cuffs on a shirt, like the ones on my beautiful shirt below from H&M’s Studio Collection, are classics.
  2. ‘Fancy cuffs’ – Like these faux fur trimmed three quarter length sleeves below on my knit from Zara.
  3. ‘Bell Sleeves’ – Billowing bell shaped sleeves that make you wanna constantly do a little dance (or take Boomerangs).

On Top Of The World In My Calvins

0

The best thing about fashion? Reinventing yourself to be whoever the hell you want to be.

This time around I was bringing out my inner eighties hip hop meets modern minimalist approach via the always versatile My Calvins bra. You can wear it as an on trend item for casual wear, as a sports bra to yoga or as a more clean and simple take on lingerie.

Here’s how I paired mine while having an eighties moment on a rooftop somewhere in Cape Town…

I layered my CK bra with a sleeveless blazer and a cocoon coat, suede skinny pants and and killer leather booties. Not to mention my character-ridden gold ‘bamboo’ hoops… They’re pretty fly.
