In the latest Vogue Germany December 2014 issue we see an editorial named "Eigen Sinnlich. Moderne Modepoesie: Dandy meets Diva," where fashion model Kati Nescher appears at the foggy beach sporting gorgeous retro inspired ensembles styled with statement hats. I personally adore that special styling, where dandy meets diva look. As you know, dandy is more appropriate to menswear styling, where a man is dressed impeccably. This year, lots of designers updated this style, by offering its female clientèle mannish silhouettes and tailored looks. Of course this way of dressing wont suit every lady, as it looks ideal on a slender, fragile girl (as it's seen in the following images). Those of you who want to update this way of dressing will for sure like to mix up of dandy with diva. The mannish tailoring looks great with long and wide silhouettes. Nevertheless, the cuts look simple and colors are muted. Still, this look is better to wear at special occasions, but not at work. Hope these images will inspire you to make your own sophisticated wardrobe for the next season.
The classic pantsuit is updated with wide silhouette of pants and slim-fit of shortened suit jacket. I like the oversized, straw hat on this model.
There can be some nautical touches, as you can add striped tops and gorgeous maxi black coats with statement buttons. Or you can go retro versus army, by adding a white, military inspired coat over your long dress.
Here we see gorgeous hats, which are ideal for creative events. The model wears creative dresses, which for sure will underline your uniqueness.
The black and white outfits can be updated with awesome prints or amazing silhouettes. I personally like here the black polka dot white trousers.
The layering effect looks creative on Kati Nescher. I love the black lace cape which is worn atop maxi dress with slim body and flared skirt.
