My Look: Ruffles

I told you already about my obsession with Ellery‘s playful to-die-for kick-flare trousers that billow out in a way that’s reminiscent of a mermaid tail. Now, you see me wearing them in combination with some more ruffles, a huge trend for S/S 2017.

Last Tuesday I flew to Paris with Ruinart for a special event that I will tell you more about this week. Being in the French capital with its sophistication, style and allure, I felt like wearing lace, bows and pearls, one of my favourite combinations.

My look: Feather cape with contrasting bow and lace lining and pussy-bow velvet-trimmed lace dress, both by Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini, lace-up leather pumps by Saint Laurent, large classic flap bag in caviar leather and smiley emoji black pearl crystal long necklace, both by ChanelAgnes felt hat with net veil by Gucci.

Accessories_Trends_SS2017

Nothing has changed since last winter… more is more is still the motto, this is what the S/S 2017 season is all about! With fashion in a maximalist mood, accessories have kept their center stage. On the runways, kitten heels are back, earrings were bigger than ever, and one bag is definitely not enough. New? The marriage of socks and boots. The forecast: Get ready for your another sumptuous season!

My Look: Blue Velvet

sandra-bauknecht-philosophy-di-lorenzo-serafini-gucci-coat

Velvet is the trend fabric this F/W 2016 season. I have always loved it for the holiday season as it is such a festive material. Since last summer, I have been crazy for the designs that Lorenzo Serafini creates for Philosophy. They are stylish and have a great price point.

sandra_bauknecht_velvet_dress_philosophy_di_lorenzo_serafini

This blue velvet dress has become my first disappointment because after wearing it only one day, all seams around the sleeves tore. Unfortunately, I had to give it back – a service that I like about online shopping, no discussion, just a refund to your credit card.

My look: Quilted nylon coat with mink by Gucci, embellished lace-trimmed blue velvet mini dress by Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafiniiconblue velvet ankle boots by Miu Miu and 2.55 quilted bag with attached hanger by Chanel (Front Row Only F/W 2016 collection).

Velvet Crush

This winter, it is all about the soft focus. Prada, Giorgio Armani, Saint Laurent and Valentino, they all made a case for velvet on the runway. In shades of burgundy and red, the must-have fabric looks divine, but needless to say, black, blue and dark green will add up to your wardrobe as well.

Get the look: Angie velvet blazer and merlot velvet shirticon, both by Saint Laurent, wallet on a chain velvet shoulder bag and leather and velvet platform sandals, both by Prada.

My Look: Generation White

My favorite season is spring, I love when nature is awakening, the air is smelling sweet and you can finally be outside enjoying the sunshine. It is also the time when I love to wear white. Isn’t this dress I got at FASHIONVESTIS just beautiful? It is airy, light and has this certain bohemian vibe that I adore so much…

My look: Broderie anglaise dress with corset belt by Philosophy di Lorenzo SerafiniAnita fringed suede shoulder bag and ankle suede boots, both by Saint Laurent, cocktail ring by Chanel, suede hat by Balenciaga iconand Carlina round-frame gold-tone sunglasses by Chloé.
