Think Silk

Black Silk Slip Dress over white ribbed tee. Lines/Manner cherishes minimalist thinking and privileges quality over quantity, as opposed to come and go fashion trends. Yet finding the right balance requires that some exceptions be made. While wearing the silk … Continue reading

WEARING RIGHT: MANGO JUMPSUIT, ALEXANDER WANG FABIANA STRAPPY HEELS, CHLOE FAYE BAG Today I have the honour to speak at a new summer event: Share A Perfect Day in Holland and share some of my styling secrets. For my presentation I picked the theme: travelling. How to pack lighter, smarter and more efficiently. You can’t have too many tips and tricks when it comes to packing, right? During Fashion Week season, or any other time when  I had to pack my bag, the seams of my suitcase always look if they were about to burst. And even when I could manage to close the damn thing, the weight exceeded the maximum weight. And so, the downsizing began and so did the headache. Time for a change! I created a way to pack my bag as efficiently possible:  the 14 days, 14 ways plan. So, how does that work? I will tell you… In this case I picked 7 winter/fall items and 7 spring/summer items from my closet (yes, that includes shoes!). Why, because I want to be prepared for any kind of weather. I’ve choosen neutral colored items so that each item will be interchangeable and will match the others. You might need an hour (or two) to mix&match but I can assure you, it’s really worth the effort. Another huge advantage is you always know what to wear, so you can save yourself some time with sorting out outfits in an overfull and chaotic suitcase during your Holiday! So, from now on: keep calm and start packing! PS: In collaboration with bagageonline.nl, you can use the discountcode COTTDS to receive 10% off your SuitSuit suitcase.
