Contrasts and compliments

Sometimes the best way to compliment a fashion statement is by contrasting it. A printed pant suit that’s so relaxed it borders pyjama-esque thus needs something a little glamorous to contradict it; a bold jewelled necklace or a pair of stiletto-heeled ankle boots, perhaps.

In donning one such relaxed pant suit of head-to-toe abstract print – this one being by Ukranian designer Yasya Minochkina – style blogger Doina Ciobanu added both of those accessories and created a look that was contrasting and yet complimentary.

Her necklace was vintage and boots from Yves Saint Laurent. You can also see more photos of the outfit on her own blog, The Golden Diamonds.

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.
