Some people's wardrobes are about a small selection of pieces that all fit within one aesthetic - Tania Braukamper isn't such a person. With a wardrobe that spans three different rooms, her approach to fashion is a mixture of current-season key pieces mixed with vintage finds she's sourced on innumerous shopping trips around the world's more cultured capitals. Despite a disparate approach to shopping, Tania is adamant that the key to mixing vintage with new season is to stick to key looks and colours that work for oneself. And it's a theory that she works into her writing for Fashionising.com, where she serves as the publication's Editor.
The trend of mystical, neo-bohemian jewellery hasn’t diminished one iota over the past few years – so it’s fortunate that it’s near impossible to get tired of seeing it. Especially when layered up and brilliantly styled against fringed shimmy bras, plunging metallic bodysuits and lace dresses. Vanessa Mooney’s “Illuminations” collection is presented in just that kind of way, merging pure prettiness with unbridled ’70s inspired…
If you recall the Burberry Prorsum autumn 2014 show, you’ll remember it closing with a procession of heavy plaid blanket capes, each embroidered with the initials of the model wearing it.

Laura Andric is one of those ultra-cool, wonderfully-infuriating girls who can chow down a huge burger with the appetite of a horse while simultaneously showing off an unaffected set of bronzed washboard abs. Who better for a shoot involving glistening skin, sneakers, and slick swimwear from budding label Iya Australia?
It’s doubly true during fashion week: an outfit isn’t quite an outfit unless you complete it with a hat. During Paris’ couture week, the street style in Paris proved the point. From fedoras to cat-ears, hats had the power to transform many an outfit.
Oh, the Pirelli calendar. How many people in the world know more of the beautiful, semi-naked models and famed photographers that are drawn together annually than they do about the fact that Pirelli makes tires? The calendar is an event upon itself, and 2015 brings a fetish themed star-studded set of images photographed by Steven Meisel, and styled by Carine Roitfeld. First images reveal Candice…
Rakishness may be a traditionally male quality, but Sarah Ann Murray of The Rake has it in pure feminine form. This vintage-inspired outfit from fashion week balances masculine items – the cap, the bow-tie brooch, the tuxedo jacket and the man-style pants – with elegant heels.
While the little black dress will always hold a place in every woman’s heart and wardrobe, there are many occasions where a bit of colour goes a long way. An elegant, figure-flattering cut and a sophisticated hem-length, paired with a statement colour, bring together the best of both worlds. What better to serve those situations where black is a little too heavy? I love versatile…
Bronzed skin against a metallic gold crop top make for a perfect summer combination on model Irina Shayk. Shayk stars on the August 2014 cover of Vogue Brazil wearing the combination, as photographed by Giampaolo Sgura.
