This month, I’m working on a very special project with Bongenie in Geneva that I’m really excited to present to you today. I’ll be sharing with my readers a styling diary featuring items from Bongenie‘s e-store. Every week, you’ll discover a new look styled by yours truly. I bet you can imagine my excitement when a department store from this caliber gives you carte blanche to create outfits with your favorite items.
It’s a very fun and stylish journey that I look forward to sharing with you these next upcoming weeks with a lesson in style added to the recipe. It was important for me to keep my identity and stay true to my style so I made sure to pick items with whom I have an emotional connection with. I believe that to look good in clothes you have to feel good in them. That’s my motto!
I named this whole look : Preppy Chic because I imagined that the kind of woman who would want to wear this outfit is smart, well-traveled, stylish and likes to be the life of a party while keeping it fun and classy. To begin with, I picked this Moschino Cheap And Chic shirt and worked my way around it. I always like to pick a statement piece first, whether it’s a shoe, a bag, or a piece of clothing and then I’ll work my way around it. In this case, I wanted to play around with textures and move away from the typical skirt and blazer look that can always look a bit too corporate.
This Carven skirt was a perfect addition, as it brings a bit of femininity as well as a pop of color and texture while the Carven wool blazer brings a touch of sophistication. It’s also a very good staple to own and to wear with everything when you want to look well-put together. I find that blazers always do the trick. And my secret ingredient to the mix ? Fun accessories. I picked this hat from Christy’s London that I paired with a trio bag from Annabel Ingall, along with a super cute Moschino iPhone case that I love to bits. And if you feel like adding a bit of vavavoom, if you know what I mean, I suggest you go for an über sexy shoe! By doing so, you’ll create an element of surprise, from head to toe. Literally!
