See-through black and Gucci red

There was a time (though it seems hard to imagine it now) that the sheer maxi dress was the bold statement to make. It wasn’t yet mainstream, it wasn’t yet accepted on the street. But then those outside of the high ranks of fashion warmed to it, and it found a cosy place amoungst the cache of women’s wardrobe staples.

And so it remains for fashion in spring 2013. Like this outfit, snapped during Milan men’s fashion week, it’s all about accessorising it to suit the occasion.

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.
