This is a look that I completely planned in my head and really hoped that it’d turn out as amazing as I saw it when putting the pieces together in my mind – and I’d say: yes, it did!

It’s probably one of those looks that you wouldn’t expect from me, but I like to surprise as much as I like to do all those obvious dress looks – not only you but also myself. And I must say that this surprise turned out to be a golden ticket for me: I love this look so much, especially because of those pants! They’re fake leather but so incredibly soft and great to wear – if you’re looking for some perfect quality fake leather pants, you HAVE TO try these. I know they’re pretty expensive, but they’re worth every cent (and also available in black)!

I’m a big fan of how these fall colors work together – we have the brown pants, a greyish white lace blouse, a dark purple and brown jacket and the shoes in a very dark brown shade – and all those colors look absolutely great in combination! I liked the combo so much, I even had to recreate it for my make-up. ;) Love the dramatic look with the smoky eyes and matte lips (for which I mixed three different liquid lipsticks for the perfect shade and some ombré). :)

Blazer: Emilio Pucci
Blouse: Angel of Style
Skirt: Beth Ditto “Lola”
Pumps: Valentino “Rockstud”
Glasses: Prada VPR 16N 1AB-1O1 53/18
Earrings: Dior “Mise en Dior”
Alternatives: Darling blazer,
Mango blouse, ASOS skirt,
ASOS Curve skirt, Lost Ink pumps

Well, maybe this is a business look inspiration – maybe not, but it’s definitely something I’d like to wear in an office. Not in mine, though, because at home in front of my computer, I mostly wear my pajamas, haha! ;) That’s why I don’t post so many business looks… ;)

The whole outfit was actually planned in a completely different way – I was supposed to try on the blouse with some short dungarees and my leather jacket. But since the dungarees were sold out, I had another idea up my sleeve – pencil skirt and short blazer! And again – my glasses, because I figured you like them and I want to keep showing them from time to time. A perfect look for all business ladies. ;)

I must say that I’m so happy with each single piece of this look. The blazer was such a lucky buy (it originally costs around €1000 and I got it for €250!) and looks amazing with any more elegant outfit. The skirt is the only pencil skirt ever to work for me and my figure because it’s tight enough around the knees. And the blouse is great because the cut fits (this is a EU 46 and it’s not too loose around the bust but still goes over my hips without any problems, yay!) and it looks so cool – a great basic to own! And yes, the glasses – did I ever tell you their story? I saw a woman on the train wearing them and was completely enchanted until I finally had the guts to ask her where she got them (just a few minutes before she left), and she was so kind as to let me write down the model number. I then found the glasses in Brazil but they were completely overpriced. In the end, I got them online at some no-name glasses store (lucky me – they were no fake).

Jacket: Happy Size
Top: Happy Size
Jeans: Happy Size
Boots: C&A
Hat: H&M Divided
Earrings: Dior “Mise en Dior”
Choker: Feathery
In cooperation with Happy Size.

I promised you that there’d be more pants coming after I wore them a lot at the → PSFD. The first look is with my new destroyed jeans from Happy Size. → Claus created a second look for me which I individualized a bit by adding my hat and a choker which gives it that special touch, kinda “Glam Rock”.

It is indeed something different for me, not only because of the pants but especially because of the (fake) leather jacket. I think I last wore a leather jacket in 2007. I never really liked them because I’m not really into that “rock style”, but sometimes it’s good to have someone who makes you try something different. It’s good to leave your comfort zone and you can always make a different styling your own by adding some characteristic details. For me, it’s definitely the hat, the extravagant choker and – of course – the bold lips. And guess what – I’ve already worn the jacket again! ;)

Dress: Scarlett & Jo
Pumps: Valentino “Rockstud”
Bag: Dior “Lady Dior”
Earrings: Chanel
Alternatives: Scarlett & Jo floral dress,
Scarlett & Jo polka dot dress, Lost Ink pumps,
ASOS pumps

Another super classic black & white look for which I went very matchy-matchy (shoooooeeees!). ;)

I need to be honest with you and tell you that unfortunately, there’s no way to get this dress at the moment. It’s from Scarlett & Jo and was only available at SimplyBe UK (so not even shipping to Germany) and is currently sold out, but I really hope that S&J will be restocking and sell it in their own shop so you can all get this amazing dress! Until then, there are two dresses of the same cut & style but with different prints: find → option n° 1 here and → option n° 2 here.
At first, I thought that the belt (it’s part of the dress but detachable) would be a bit too much, but when you’re all ready with hair and make-up done, wearing nice shoes and accessories, the belt is definitely a great addition, it brings in a bit more contrast – and that’s good. ;)

I love these very classic dresses which you can definitely style in a modern way but which also work if you stay true to their style. For this look I decided to go on with the ladylike look, so I picked my black and white “Rockstuds”, my “Lady Dior” and classic Chanel earrings, very luxurious accessories for a very sophisticated look.

At the moment, you’d definitely need to wear a warm coat, at least when you go outside. ;) I’d recommend a classic black one, I’d take → this one, it’s my favorite of all times. ;)
