Easy Easter Style

To me, being with the family during the Easter holiday, relaxed and comfortable style is the way to go! And when I want relaxed and comfortable I look for leather jackets and cosy sweaters, to keep me warm near the Easter fire. I would have loved to have this leather jacket, really love the female look of it!

Veruschka and the Safari Style

VeruschkaIsabellaKilenstam

This spring the safari style is told to be one of the trends of the season. According to Vogue Encyclo the identification marks of safari style is “monochrome style characterized by a sand tone, in all the different shades of the desert, extremely classic in volumes”. Safari style is a clear classic and I’m happy to see pieces from this style in the stores because it has always been a favorite for me (I guess because my eternal weakness for sand tones that I early got the idea would go along well with my hair tone).

To me the iconic look of Veruschka shot by Franco Rubartellis for Yves Saint Laurent in the 60’s (illustrated by me above) is the ultimate symbol for safari style, it’s a continual personal inspiration. Maybe not so much the actual clothes, but the feel of the photo!

Veruschka herself invented her own persona as a young aspiring model in her twenties. To break through in the fashion industry she changed her name from Vera to the more exotic sounding Veruschka, dessed all in black and went to see all the top photographers of the time. She told them “let’s see what you can do with my face”.

The Safari Look

Some inspiration: Fendi loose blouse, Saint Laurent safari jacket, Lisa August safari oval link bracelet, Gold Water hammered cuff, Nuxe huile prodigieuse or, Seychelles zebra shoes and OPI take ten nail polish kit.

The Style of Rachel Zane

In my life the mother of all style evolvement have been inspirational role models. Rachel Zane in Suits, played by Meghan Markle, is a lovely one.

Always impeccable power-dressed she’s also got perfect jewellery and that perfect blow dry. Well it might not be a surprise that the actress is also a model, but I still think the character can be a great business wear inspiration for any woman.

The stylish look with the blue dress can easily be recreated. Mango have got a similar blue dress and here you can find nude leather pumps. To make the look complete ad a watch from Michael Kors  or, if you want something more budget, from Top Shop  and OPIs nail polish Road House Blues.
