Woman on top

The bombshell ‘60s may have returned in a flurry of lace dresses, cat eye glasses, and hourglass-inducing pencil skirts – but in this modern era, woman’s role in the office is vastly different to what it was back then. Benjamin Kanarek’s latest shoot for Harper’s Bazaar en Espanol & Mexico is like Mad Men in reverse: the female is the dominant player in this corporate world.

Styled by Vanessa Naudin, the underlying concept is that of what we wear having the power to influence what we are. If wearing a bold set of suspenders or some soft sheer lace under your outfit – hidden though they may be – makes you feel powerful, that’s what you’ll be.

Let’s not forget, though: while it may be sharp suits instead of suspenders for men, the theory is the same. Dress for who you want to be.

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.
