How to turn a shirt into a skirt: Rachel Rutt

Remember those soft yet masculine hats we saw on the runway at Bec & Bridge’s spring 2011 show? Well judging by the adorable colour I can only bet that this is one of them. The ability to throw the most eclectic and unusual pieces together into wildly appealing outfits is a born skill of Aussie model Rachel Rutt and this particular outfit, snapped by Candice Lake, is no exception. The DIY skirt is the most interesting part: you don’t have to be quite so out-there as to replicate it in fluoro tie-die prints, but effortlessly turning a shirt into a wrap-around skirt is one to try if you’re game.

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, where she serves as the publication's Editor.
