Draped in stars and stripes, wrapped in New York City tees, heads capped in Rosie The Riveter style headscarves: celebrating America seems the most fitting activity for a Labor Day long weekend. This editorial shot by Maria del Rio does exactly that, styled by Tienlyn Jacobson of Say Hello Max into a modern mashup of patriotic Americana and youthful cool.

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.
