Going green

This autumn I find myself drawn to all things that are green. I associate the colour green strongly with nature: for me it’s the colour of tranquility, freshness, growth and fertility. Green makes me think of safety and it’s also commonly associated with money. It’s a delightfully fresh looking colour that to my excitement makes a return in fashion every few years.

With green it’s important to choose the right shade for your skin tone to avoid looking sick -or envious- but there is a shade for everyone. My personal favorites are bottle green and olive green. I also love fresh grass green and luxurious shades of emerald and jade. Green looks great with our trusted neutrals black and denim, and I am also giving you the green light to wear it with your winter whites (see what I did there).

I have created you these five green looks to wear this season in the office. Hope you like them as much as I do. Let’s celebrate the positive power of green! I have also pinned them all on my Pinterest board: https://nl.pinterest.com/IonImage/i-on-image-working-wardrobe/styled-by-i-on-image-aw2016/so go ahead and pin them on your own style board for your inspiration.

In the navy

I on Image is in love with navy blue for several seasons now. It’s a universally flattering colour and one of the best shades to choose in your working wardrobe. It’s very chic and elegant and most certainly less severe than black. Gone are the days of boring uniform-like pantsuits that are diplomatic in a sense that they look good on no one. This season navy is sleek, sexy, modern and it works for both day and night time.

I have created you five navy looks to wear this season in the office. I have combined navy with beige, grey, bordeaux and even black. Yes that is allowed in 2015. Hope you like them as much as I do!

More wine? I on Image tastes wines with Sanna Pöyry

It’s Friday and let’s just admit it : we all could use a glass of wine by now!

Luxurious and deep shades of red wine are huge this season and very appropriate for the office. Rich bordeaux is a very powerful colour, but it’s less aggressive than scarlet red, and it suits most colour types. It combines well with black, grey, white, cream and even pale pink.

I have created you four wine-hued looks to wear this season in the office. All looks can be pinned to your own style board here: https://nl.pinterest.com/IonImage/i-on-image-working-wardrobe/styled-by-i-on-image-aw2015/

Whether you are heading to the local hot spot with the colleagues or curling up inside a warm blanket at home, there is certainly something magical about a good glass of red wine on a crisp autumn evening. Wine educator Sanna Pöyry from Studio Bronx has chosen I on Image fans four amazing red wines to match each look. I have known Sanna since forever and I just love her joie de vivre. She is adventurous and passionate about wine and with her I have tasted some of the best wines I have ever tasted in my life. Here her impeccable taste in wine meets my passion for fashion. Santé!

 

Goes well with a Cabernet Sauvignon: Miguel Torres Manso de Velasco, Curico Valley, Chile

 

Goes well with a Merlot: Château Siaurac Plaisir de Siaurac, Lalande-de-Pomerol, France

Goes well with a wine from Chianti: Isole e Olena Chianti Classico, Chianti, Italy

Goes well with a Pinot Noir: Jean Stodden Spätburgunder Alte Reben Trocken, Ahr, Germany

Enjoy the rest of the week in style!

LBD for all body shapes

There is no single item in a woman’s wardrobe that is more versatile, more flattering or more chic than The Little Black Dress, aka LBD. Fashion bible Vogue praises this wardrobe classic:

“You can’t go wrong with a little black dress. It’s timeless, yet timely. Hardworking, but just a tiny bit frivolous. It camouflages flaws and showcases assets. It’s almost perfect.” Alexandra Horton

I have created 5 IOI-proof looks for you to wear in the office this season. Technically this one item is all you need to look polished and sophisticated every single day. The key is to find the one that works for your body shape and update is to each season with fresh accessories. Each dress featured in this story can be dressed up or dressed down depending on your accessories. I am crazy about combining nude heels with my LBD but the super chic quilted ballet flat does it for me too.

The 5 most common body shapes are:

  1. Apple
  2. Pear
  3. Rectangular
  4. Hourglass
  5. Inverted triangle

Find your own body shape by simply measuring yourself or look yourself in a full length mirror wearing black top and tights or leggings. This article gives you a full insight about finding your bodyshape http://www.whowhatwear.com/how-to-find-body-shape-calculator/

I always recommend dressing according to your own body shape to my clients. A lot of style advice is based on people having to hide their flaws, rather that embracing what is good about their body. For me this way of thinking is alien because hiding and projecting negative thoughts towards your body has never done anyone any favours. There is a dress for every body shape out there, go and grab yours!

Did you like these looks? I have pinned them all on my Pinterest board https://nl.pinterest.com/IonImage/i-on-image-working-wardrobe/lbd-for-all-body-shapes/ so you can pin them on your own style board.

Happy shopping and happy pinning!

No white after Labor Day

US Labor Day was on Monday 7th September 2015 and to many this has been the time to pack away your white clothing. I on Image answers the question that has plagued mankind for decades: Can you wear white after Labor Day? The grand house of American etiquette, The Emily Post Institute in Vermont gives us a historical insight to this style rule:

“Back in Emily’s day—the nineteen 00s, 10s and 20s—the summer season was bracketed by Memorial Day and Labor Day. Society flocked en masse from town house to seaside “cottage” or mountain “cabin” to escape the heat. City clothes were left behind in exchange for lighter, whiter, summer costumes. Come fall and the return to the city, summer clothes were put away and more formal city clothes donned once more. It was an age when there was a dress code for practically every occasion, and the signal to mark the change between summer resort clothes and clothing worn for the rest of the year was encapsulated in the dictum “No white after Labor Day.” And it stuck.”

Fashion bibles Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar declare this rule dead a long time ago and show several gorgeous ways to incorporate white in your autumn and winter wardrobe.


“The age-old adage advising not to wear white after Labor Day has never looked as wrong as it does for Fall 2015.”Steff Yotka for Vogue
“Whoever decided that white was unacceptable after Labor Day clearly never experienced the coziness of an alabaster-colored cashmere knit on a crisp fall day or the luxe feel of buttery leather leggings in the softest shade of cream.” for Harper’s Bazaar

I have created you four wearable white looks to wear this season in the office and beyond. All looks can be pinned from this Pinterest board: https://nl.pinterest.com/IonImage/i-on-image-working-wardrobe/styled-by-i-on-image-aw2015/

Did I convince you to wear white all year round? In case I did, it’s time to stock up on Vanish. Happy shopping and enjoy your well earned weekend!
