Part of the fun of exploring 2012′s hair trends is watching as they unveil themselves in a variety of different forms. Across editorials, on the street, in look books – the simplest of hairstyles get reinvented time and again. Sonia Rykiel’s silky procession of side-pinned waves for spring 2012 entered our minds as something girlishly innocent – perfect for pairing with spring whites and gelati shades of pink and yellow. In Emily DiDonato’s latest shoot for Vogue Mexico though, the same hairstyle becomes decidedly femme fatale.

In Alexander Neumann’s photos DiDonato swans about in a raven palette. Black lace is softly dangerous. Other aspects have the minutest hint of fetish, like an open jacket revealing black lingerie or a maxidress sheer enough to show stay-up stockigns. Pearl bracelets over black opera gloves are the kind of combination only worn with heads held high, heels even higher, and mandatory red lipstick.

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.
