Flirty yet faithful to the fifties: Miranda Kerr

The concept of taking the 1950s bombshell look out of Europe and planting it in the streets of Brooklyn is given a little bit of rawness by way of Terry Richardson’s hand. But even so, it’s pure femininity in each and every shot as Miranda Kerr struts the gritty Brooklyn streets in what Harper’s Bazaar bills as ‘unforgettable daywear’. But while ‘daywear’ may be a fitting description for some of the outfits (like a crop top / high waisted skirt ensemble), others are unlikely to resonate with readers as the kind looks they’d want to replicate casually. Transpose them for going out, however, and you’ll be on to some winners.

While sexily styled by Brana Wolf, and with a dedication to the era that borders on costume, were reminded that mixing up the vintage and the modern is the best way to make any ’50s look a street-ready one, especially if you’re looking for daywear.

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.
