Add a Style to your Life and Carry that Sport-Chic look Everyday!
After being the queen of bridal couture, Vera Wang’s love for clothes made her a success in the prêt-a-porter world. When prompted about what she offers for this season’s offerings, she says, “Mix it up; don’t worry about different shades clashing. Layering lends certain nonchalance, so clothes don’t look so serious.” I couldn’t agree with her more and wouldn’t you know it, the 2012 Simply Vera Wang collection delivers just that. I recommend the woven pieced lavender and earl heather gray tank top ($40.), the skinny ankle pants ($54.) matched with this passe-par-tout bottom quilted shopper ($139.) When you round it all out with the gray snake color heels ($79.), you have yourself one hot number!
I like this line for an everyday look — full of attitude with a sense of comfort which has been the signature standard for The Simply Vera Wang collection for the last five years. Pair this asymmetrical draped top in brush enchanted garden color for ($48.) with a Ponte pencil chic skirt in a black pure night color ($48.) for the perfect look.
The Simply Vera Wang spring 2012 collection is a mix of earthy gray stone, leisurely lavender, and soft floral colors. This printed cardigan ($58.) comes with a gray stone chiffon overlay knit top ($44.) and a cropped dove pants ($54.) Fits perfectly with this gray, bone, mushroom and black clutch ($49.)
I found all the Vera Wang fashions at Kohl’s (or kohls.com). Tell them Marianne at ALO magazine sent you there…
Loose the Tie.
The 2012 Massimo Dutti men’s collection gives your professional look a definitely (!) trendy style. The navy blue trench coat ($213.) is perfect for the windy days, on top of a circular grey blazer ($213.). Add the casual plain white shirt with contrasting pin point stripes that is a must have for every occasion ($65.)
Take on that clean look with the idyllic contrast of brown and beige. This modish suit of faded hound’s tooth check beige blazer and trousers ($410.) gives you a business class look when combined with leather briefcase and an assorted handkerchief.
For an artsy look put on those red chino trousers with overlook edging ($65.) paired with a dyed linen cotton navy blue blazer ($184.) and for an outdoor spring day style it up with a borsalino,
