Style Inspiration: Summer to Fall


IT IS ALREADY MID-AUGUST and how the summer has flown by so briskly is hard to understand. Before we know it, hot summer nights on a terrace with sparkling fairy lights and a glass of rosé will be replaced by breezy fall afternoons in a cozy Parisian café, wearing your favourite cashmere sweater and boyfriend jeans. This is the ideal time to start thinking about your fall wardrobe’s direction; will you become a sophisticated French woman who prefers a wardrobe made of simple investment pieces in tonal hues, or one of the modern schoolgirls à la Gucci by Alessandro Michele? Will you, instead choose to embrace the 70s romantic bohemia, with Victoriana lace and a free spirit? Fall leaves room for experimenting, and either becoming the woman you have always wanted to be, or making improvements upon your own style.02

The transition itself is a difficult one, for it’s impossibly hard to let go of your favourite summer items like that Chloé button skirt or white lace dress, but it is made simpler by the beautiful style icons and pieces from pre-fall collections that make knits and jeans look so appealing. Women like Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Olivia Palermo exemplify transitional style perfectly, while the August editorials make us dream. —Victoria03 04 05

It’s the time to swap shorts for boyfriend jeans, throw on a crisp crepe blazer, and accessorise with the it-bag for fall. A new seductive scent imbued with juniper berries and leather will bring a new attitude.outfit1 – Chloé crepe blazer, 2 – Frame Denim blouse, 3 – Gianvito Rossi pumps, 4 – Byredo 1996 Eau de Parfum, 5 – Victoria Beckham boyfriend jeans, 6 – Illasteva sunglasses, 7 – Gucci shoulder bag.

Victoria lives in the south of Spain, having moved there from her native country Ukraine when she was just a child. She finds herself looking up to timeless icons from past decades including Jackie O, Grace Kelly, Katherine Deneuve and Audrey Hepburn, and longing for sunny afternoons on the French Riviera and walks along the Seine during spring. Always overdressed and dishing out on tailored pieces and shoes – secretly dreaming they were from Dior or Saint Laurent – she dresses for herself rather than others, and would trade breakfast for Vogue or a one way ticket to anywhere beautiful.
