We recently delved into the benefits of a bob that doesn’t require a pair of scissors: this waved, toussled bob, a modern update on something you might have spotted on a 1920s flapper girl. But whether it’s this or one of the other major hairstyles for 2012, we’re always welcoming of any visual inspiration on getting the style right. Cue this shoot from the January issue of Elle Denmark, starring Louise Pedersen.

Like our how-to guide on the hairstyle suggested, it’s a bob that you can fake with the help of some bobby pins and hairspray. Pedersen’s hair is testament to that. As for the clothing, there’s a mix of eras stirring their way into Souvanni Asmussen’s styling from the ’40s to the ’60s. But while everything is infused with a little hint of the exotic – the prints, the rich colours, the furs – it really shows that the hairstyle can work against a variety of eras and themes.

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.
