Off-duty, understated Karlie

Karlie Kloss, she with the fiercest runway presence of them all, looks so very sweet off the runway that it’s hard to accept her as the same person. But here she is, big smile and statuesque frame, looking simple yet elegant in a very understated military ensemble.

As we all know, military has had a full run and is winding down as we transition to 2011′s fashion trends; so Karlie’s take – an unembellished piped blazer and some buttoned knee-high boots (which you can see after the jump) – is just enough of a military hint.

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.
