A 1940′s coquette

Just look at the cool coquette on the left of this photo. Now that is attitude that cannot be faked, or bought. It’s in the rebellious man-style pants and saddle shoes; the pose with the leg up and cigarette in hand; the cheeky half-smile. It’s more charm than beauty and more composure than poise. It’s simply perfect.

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.
