My Look: Power Pairings

Power pairingsDress, meet pants! Red have fun with pink! Exciting twists that will make heads turn. The downside? It’s dangerously easy to get it wrong. Here are some tips how to pull it off. First, make sure that the fabrics look good together, second don’t underestimate the proportions of your outfit. A belt might help to accentuate your shape.

A dress over pants has emerged as my latest obsession thanks to Balenciaga that showed that it can be undeniably chic when done right. The partial split (it is sewn together at the seam) at the front of my pink dress, where I put my leg through, and the one in the back, both give a new life to my “old” red leather pants.

My look: Split-side silk-georgette midi dress and scarf leather belt, both by Balenciagared skinny stretch-leather pants iconand red ankle boots, both by Saint LaurentDe Manta brocade clutch by Alexander McQueen, diamond rose ring by Piaget and sunglasses by Céline.

S/S 2017: New Chic in Pink


Think pink, the S/S 2017 catwalks defiantly dictated fuchsia hues. The look? Nothing for sweet sugar princesses, pink has grown up and looks super cool on cape/dress hybrids, tight at the neck to elegant effect, as seen at Valentino or at Balenciaga where it was paired with purple spandex shoe-pants. I like those dresses together with Miu Miu‘s runway heels. Do you dare?
