It’s cool to dress like a lumberjack

And you don’t even have to be chopping wood in a forest.

Lindsay Lohan was doing it way back, while Mary-Kate Olsen definitely typified the look. The interesting thing is that it seems to still be doing strong; baggy plaid shirts, worn with skinny jeans, shorts or tights.

Natalie Portman was spotted the other day in one; Kate Bosworth looked a little more farmer than fashionista in hers. I hadn’t really thought much about getting myself one until I saw this checkered hoodie by Trimapee, a toned-down version which looked much more striking in real life and, frankly, is quite 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.
