Bombers, badges & bobby socks: Marloes Horst

Sometimes it’s the simplest styling choices that jump out at you without warning. They clutch you like a phantom hand, beckon you to follow. It could be one simple thing – an accessory, a colour, a new way to tie a tie – but more often it’s a combination of things that come together to create a mood.

It would be easy to pass 2012′s hairstyle take on the side part off as neutral or of incapable of being a main contributor to one of those grabbing looks. But one glance at Marloes Horst will inform you that’s not the case. The matted, dangerous side fringe with its hint of wet look gel and it’s predisposition to attitude makes it an essential ingredient in the looks styled here. Part 50s rockabilly part 80s punk, both parts equally steeped in rebellion, it takes little to create this mood – and that little is wholly worth it.

Bomber jackets, bobby socks, and roll-neck sweaters layered under shirts are all part of the act in the Patrik Sehlstedt photographed shoot. Don’t forget the nonchalant cluster of badges on any jacket breast or lapel.

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.
