The two Ls: getting it right

Leather. Lace. Flip through some current magazine editorials and you’ll notice the two are often being styled hand in hand. The beautiful thing about leather and lace is the contrast. Leather is traditionally edgy, hard; lace feminine and soft. But the key to getting the balance right is remembering this: leather doesn’t have to be too hard and lace doesn’t have to be too soft. Keeping both subtle can be the perfect way to balance the contrast.

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.
