Not quite a dress

Not quite a dress, not quite a top… some items of clothing are plain indecisive. It can also come down to height: a top on me might be a dress on someone a little shorter. Hanneli in this vintage find tackles the problem well, with a little pair of shorts that don’t show beneath the hem of the dress unless the dress moves. And when the dress moves, they’re there, standing steadfast, to save the day.

The floral print and ruffled sleeves capture such an essence of spring when paired with the espadrilles and pastel blue nails.

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.
