Stylish City: vintage denim, summer leather and 70s style

The summer of 2010 was a showcase of retro looks  and saw the return of minimal chic and feminine elegance.

Faded, bleached denim was one of the biggest trends this summer and not only in the practical form of denim shorts but also jackets, shirts and dresses. Looks so fresh when paired with romantic ruffles and simple hairstyle.

Leather pencil skirt

Pencil leather skirts emerged as a trend throughout spring 2009 New York collections. And not only skirts; slick jackets, dresses and even leather tops that placed this material in a sophisticated area, pushing it forward from the fetishistic/stereotype category.

And, with today's technology development, artificial leather versions like latex and all sort of high-tech pvc coated fabrics are more comfortable, softer and look even better than leather; so it has never been more easier and classier to make a eco-friendly choice.

Style on a budget: Recreating a Marc Jacobs look

Marc Jacobs is one of my favorite designers, not necessarily for his designs, which aren’t that brilliant, but for the impeccable styling of his shows and for the straightforward American spirit he sends forth.

Marc is a great stylist and I always find out new ways to wear basic wardrobe pieces or new color combinations. His Fall 2007 collection has a retro vibe, straight lines reminding of twenties Art Deco fashion and of the late eighties high society. Or so it seems to me.

I especially like this outfit because of that spicy red leather pleated skirt. I looked for a similar one but all I could come with was a straight red leather skirt I found on eBay.
