The Difference a Jacket Makes


Today’s post is dedicated to jackets as they finish off a look perfectly and are the perfect mid-season solution. The right jacket can do wonders. Invest in good quality, the same goes for shoes and bags. But no worries, you don’t need to spend a fortune. The German fashion house BASLER offers great choices for an amazing price. Below, I styled some outfits for you including all kinds of jackets by BASLER.

School House Chic


A vibrant colourful jacket can take your look to style goddess allure in a second as you see here. The classic cut gives BASLER‘s pink blazer its contemporary appeal. Slip it on with boyfriend jeans and sneakers to master smart/casual cool.

Chic Weekend Style


Cropped jackets are among my favorites as they are so feminine. The construction of this piece by BASLER is complex, but it’s so easy to wear – team yours with a colorful dress, as pictured here, and enjoy that all eyes will be on you.

Beach Party


Sequins sparkling in the sunlight are just stunning and scream attention. Elegant eveningwear demands a suitably chic coverup and BASLER has the perfect piece matching all sorts of styles.

Tropical Vacation


A belted jacket is the coolest way to cover up this summer. BASLER‘s safari-style version’s longer length makes it perfect for layering.

At the Gucci S/S 2012 Show


Today I drove to Milan for Fashion Week S/S 2012. It is actually pretty nice to take the car as there is so much space to fit in all the lovely outfits. My first show was Gucci. As you know, I love the Italian brand.

Frida Giannini started of the show with some iconic prints and the combination of green and black. There was a lot of black and white to follow, definitely less colours than her two last seasons. Sharp tailored pants with cropped jackets. Fringes were all over. Next summer, there will be a lot of glitter and shine. Sparkling sequined flapper dresses, reminiscent of the Roaring Twenties, finished of this very wearable, beautiful collection.

Are you a Gucci girl? I surely am… stay tuned for the outfit I wore today (…and somebody else, too!).

LoL, Sandra
