To the flea market

Nothing is more Sunday than a tour at the flea market. And you can’t enjoy a sunny day at the flea market without a touch of vintage. Dress unstressed but always to impress. Start from your eldest pair of denim, high rise and boyfriend fit, and polish the look with simple but strong details, like a cropped t-shirt and the unmissable pair of round frame sunglasses. And don’t forget your vintage Chanel.

Cosy day

Cosy days don’t necessary mean clumsy and unfashionable look. Sports this season is arm in arm with luxe, giving a boost to the easiest off-duty outfit. Start by a cool pair of sneakers, the ultimate detail of your city-chic appeal, and team it with a bomber jacket, that in Spring displace the timeless leather jacket, for a sophisticated metropolitan allure. Finish, adding a touch of unstressed elegance with a bijoux cross-body.

To a conference

Business is not business without a touch of pinstripe. What is more professional than a tailored suit to attend a conference? A mannish appeal is just what you need to standout in style, but with the right contrast to enhance the feminine allure.
Make your best pair of sartorial pants the hero-piece of your look, and just team it with neutral deatils, like a polished collarless coat, a structured bag and a pair of monochrome mid heel pumps.

To the office

Running to office is a hard work. That’s why you need a black&white solution for an easy-going start. For instant sophistication, opt for a boy-meets-girl match, playing with soft tailoring for a city-chic result. Update your classic uniform with wide-leg pants and wedge slip on, then give a touch of femininity with a contrasting ladylike cover-up.

Job Interview

The most difficult look to prepare (even more difficult than a first date look) is the one for a job interview. You must be sober, but standing out; elegant, but not boring. Of course, it depends a lot on what you’re applying for. But, in any case, the first rule is that you need to look confident in your outfit. Choose simple matches without overdoing, and go bold with details.
Pants are better than a skirt (choose a wide leg model for a more professional result) with a statement belt high on your waist, then match it with tailored and refined details like a shirt (maybe a little bit boysh for a contrasting effect) together with your best jacket. Shoes must be flat and accessories neutral.

Off duty

If your’re lucky enough to spend a whole day off for your own business, than it’s time to play on the situation and get the best of your leisurewear with a twist of smartness.
Jeans, of course, are the starting poit, but the rest is the key to a successful look. If you’re looking for a mix and match effect (meaning, leisure, but not too much) whatever the weather, choose an iconic and tailored trench coat for a touch of reliability and playdown with some showy accessory, that you won’t put on daily, like a fluo beanie and a funny leather clutch.

Fashion Week

And onother fashion month stars again. So, take the first flight to New York and let’s style on the street during the first fashion week of the season. The street code is a really rough work, since there are no rules. You have billion options to take account of. You can overstate your look by creating multi-layers outfits or, more easly, you can choose a clean and refined dress, so to be prepared for all the daily events ahead and just be perfect for all the kind of shows.
An elegant cape is just what you need to keep yourself (stylish) safe and (warmth) sound. Team it with your best sheath dress, maybe not a simple LBD, but something more winsome, but without overdoing. At the end, bet on your best accessories, like a printed pair of pump and an ample clutch to bring everything you need during the day.

Snowy Day

There’s nothing worse than styling for a snowy freezing day. To outlive the chill of winter, it’s better take remedial action that doesn’t necessary mean to resign to puffed and bulky outfits. On the contrary, a refined woolen coat lends a warm and trendy touch to your city look. Then, fight the dropping temperatures with practical cold-weather accessories like a sophisticated fedora instead of the usual umbrella and a statement pair of leather ankle boots to step up in style.

Day to night

If a day is made of 24 hours and the double of tasks, it's not easy to find a look to pick the right dress from your closet. To survive a work-to-cocktail day, you should give your elegant dress a contemporary cut, not to trivialize. Choose a simple sheath dress, orange instead of black, matched with a single-breasted coat, spotted or printed instead of monochrome. If you want to achieve a wow effect, wear playful pieces that will istantaneously give you a go-everywhere appeal.

Pitti Days

Then, how to be perfect on the streets of Florence? Away from the showy looks, the key is a cocktail a sartorial elegance with a touch of distressed eccentricity. Aim at classic with a crew-neck pull (better if cashmere) and a manlike shirt, and team the whole with a stunning printed skirt. At your feet a wear sandals or, even better, a unique pair of brogues.
