Luxury Style: Mixing Dressy with Casual

How to mix authentic, timeless luxury with casual looks. 


In every outfit I style, I'm inspired to include texture, juxtaposition, bling, pop of color, and a fab bag. 


1. Texture



I used a lot of layers and texture in styling these pieces together. 

The raised texture of the vintage Etro chocolate velvet vest, set against a flat white cotton blouse, and a draped vintage Hermes silk scarf gives a multidimensional effect. 

Then, instead of stopping there, I opened the gold buttons at the vest to show the gold hardware of vintage Hermes H leather belt

See a couple more examples of how iconic women of fashion, Sophia Loren & Victoria Beckham, have used the same style.



The famous Italian actress, style icon, and beauty queen, Sophia Loren chose to accessorize with an Hermes Scarf for a more vintage look. 


For a modern look, Victoria BeckhamEnglish businesswoman, fashion designer, model and singer, also known as Posh Spice, added BOTH a scarf and Hermes Red 35cm Birkin to tie together her fabulous hip luxury style. 

2. Juxtaposition



When choosing to wear velvet and silk, most people consider the fabrics more appropriate for dressier or holiday occasions. 

I liked the juxtaposition of pairing the dressy, velvet vest, with silk Hermes Scarf and casual jeans. 

Taking a nod from the men, using the vest and men's size Rolex, while pairing it with dainty diamond bangles like these white or yellow gold Love Bracelets from Cartier, or these two, a diamond and sapphire yellow gold, & the Etoil bangle bracelet, 18K Gold Diamond from Tiffany.  

3. Bling


A little bling is always a good thing in my book. 

The flash of the men's Vintage Daytona Yellow Gold Rolex mixed with Cartier and Diamond bangles (see above) are the perfect bling for to pair with jeans, making this a laid back, juxtaposed mix of luxurious and casual look, perfect for either men or women. 



Elle Macpherson is an Australian model, businesswoman, television host and actress. 

She is probably best known for her record five cover appearances for the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue

I liked her best in her appearances on my cult-favorite show, Friends

She epitomizes femininity yet chose to wear a men's size, yellow gold Daytona.
The most famous star to wear the Rolex Daytona is cool guy Paul Newman, the one who made it famous.
 In 2008, upon Paul Newman's passing, California Governor, Arnold Schwarzenegger said:

"Paul Newman was the ultimate cool guy who men wanted to be like and women adored. He was an American icon, a brilliant actor, a Renaissance man and a generous but modest philanthropist. He entertained millions in some of Hollywood's most memorable roles ever, and he brightened the lives of many more, especially seriously ill children, through his charitable works. Paul was one of a kind. The beloved film star will be missed by a world of fans and admirers."

4 & 5. Pop of Color / Fab Bag


I chose Red as my pop of color. You can see it here in the bag, as well as the bit of red showing in the scarf. 

I'm not alone, either. 

Stylish American actress, film producer and former fashion model, Katherine Heigl,  chose a 35cm Hermes Red Birkin as her pop of color and fab bag, all in one. 

She show's here you can keep it simple, and still incorporate multiple rules into the same piece.

Monday Muse: Jackie Onassis

 




Jacqueline Lee Bouvier Kennedy Onassis: One of the greatest style icons to ever be born. Her taste was a model for women in the sixties and seventies. As Jackie Kennedy, she was known for clean cut Chanel suits, complete with triple strand pearl necklace and pillbox hat. Jackie Kennedy was the first woman to give the public a glimpse into the personal lives of the first family, and she was a idol for more than a few American women. Her style during her reign of the white house was timeless, from pregnancy, to mourning, Jackie was always the epitome of simple elegance. Post-first lady, she remarried, and developed her style even further. Opting for a more updated look that included casual pieces. Her white jeans and black turtleneck trend was in every American Closet, and lets not forget an Hermes Scarf and oversized sunglasses, most well known of the Jackie O trends. Above being just a style icon, she exhibited grace and confidence at all times. Showing that she was more than just a well dressed socialite. Jackie was a dedicated philanthropist, book editor, mother and wife.

Walking in a Hermes Wonderland

The harsh, cold weather is rare to experience when living in South Texas. But, if we did ever have some, we hope that we can frolic and play (the eskimo way) in a winter wonderland of Hermes. Sounds like paradise. Here is what we mean.
When the weather gets harsh we hope to be...


...cozy in our log cabin complete with Hermes blankets to keep us warm, 


and a Hermes snow globe to entertain us. 


We'll peer outside our window to check if the weather has calmed down.


Lucky us, it will have stopped. 


The perfect time for a sleigh ride in the snow.


If only we'd come across a mountain filled with Hermes scarves billowing in the wind...




THE END!
