Blazer and scarves

For the office, I like the combination of blazer or jacket with Blouse and trousers. The ultimate accessoire to make the outfit even more classic and stylish is a pretty scarf. Scarves can be knotted in many different ways and one will fit every occasion. Following are a couple of examples from the internet:

How to style a parka with a simple shirt and jeans

A parka is a long hooded anorak. Originated in Alaska and Siberia it was used later on with the military. The practical long jacket usually has big bags and can be lined or not and with fur on the hood also be worn in winter. Since the 1960s the military look became a fashion trend and now the parka is worn by fashionitas all over the world. Here you can find more details.

Normally, the parka is not typically for summer but when it's cool and rainy, my practical summer parka from H&M comes in handy. On the H&M website you can find parkas in different colors and shapes.

My parka is already a couple of years old with big bags, hood and integrated belt to regulate the width of the chunky jacket. The color is classic military green and can be combined easily with other colors. I also like parkas in dark blue and neutral colors, because they substitute a trench coat. The look gets a little bit younger and also more casual. 

For the rest I choose classic items of clothing like a white T-shirt with a v-neck and jeans with strait legs. My jeans are already a little bit frayed at the legs since I have it for nearly ten years and wear it a lot. I think, ripped jeans only look good on young women. I wouldn't buy ripped jeans!

Jeans and T-shirt are a classic combination, comfortable and can be worn from women of all ages and on all occasions. The color combination I chose is an empty canvas for other colors and prints to give the outfit a little bit of color. With the yellow scarf and my yellow bag I integrated color splash of colors into the outfit. Totally necessary on a dark and rainy day.

Cycling - Styling idea

Cycling auf polyvore
Today, there was a beautiful summer's day and I took the bicycle to go to the office. My denim jacket is the ideal companion when it's still a little bit cooler in the morning.

My jeans from H&M I already bought a few years ago. With their light blue color they fit perfect into summer. And together with the platform sandals also to the 70s trend. Though, for cycling they should not be too high. I like to combine leather and jeans. And include another trend: denim on denim. The black leather tank top makes the outfit cool and not sexy.
