FashionIt Girl: Esther Quek

If you’ve ever dabbled in the menswear trends (or admired the women who do) it’s time you should meet Esther Quek. It comes as no surprise that Esther Quek is the fashion director of menswear magazine The Rake, but what IS surprising is her uncanny ability to pull together a tailored blazer, slacks, loafers, ties, and a seriously short haircut, while still looking fabulously feminine.

FashionModel Off Duty: Frida Gustavsson

I want to introduce you to one of my favorite up-and-coming models: Frida Gustavsson. This 17-year-old, 5’11” Stockholm native is a self-proclaimed geek, but is a natural on both the runway and on film. In January, she walked for Valentino, Armani Privé, Elie Saab, Christian Dior, and Chanel in spring couture shows in Paris.

Frida is not only a force on the runway, but also off. Below are some example of her laid back, but chic, style.

FashionTrend to Try: Jean Shorts + Tights

With spring fast approaching, shorty shorts are hitting the shelves left and right. I put on a pair the other day and decided it was still too breezy outside and by far too early to be showing so much pale winter skin.

That’s when I was inspired to pair my favorite black opaque tights with last summer’s denim shorts.

The combination is so wonderfully simple. What better way to safely transition from chilly winter weather to fresh and sunny spring mornings?

The expert bloggers pictured here have mastered the whole jean short/tight pairing. I love it best with cut-off shorts or those with a cuffed hem. Paired with a loose top and a crisp blazer or crop jacket, the look is perfectly pulled together.

For footwear, try ankle booties or flats. Also, the addition of a long, chunky necklace adds the perfect finishing touch.
