No one other than Yves Saint Laurent portrayed those things, whose tailored style and classic square framed glasses, was a fixture in the fashion world. Being one of the most illustrious designers and fashion pioneers, his personal style of smart pantsuits, tuxedo looks, and tailored outfits echoed into his countless collections that revolutionized the way women dressed.

A Tee 4 Ways

By in

A shirt can be an incredible staple and a formidable tool to have. Besides being a classic piece, there are endless ways to get creative to make incredible looks. Here are four ideas you can try, featuring our Lazy Oaf ‘Scribble’ Tee.

dress

Look 1: The Infinity Sleeve Wrap Dress Using two shirts that are identical or similar, start by wearing the first shirt as you normally would. Take the second shirt and wrap the collared area around your waist and fasten the buttons haphazardly so that one size drapes longer than the other. You can then either tie the sleeves around your waist or you can stick your hands into the sleeves like we did to create an infinity sleeve.

harempant

Look 2: Harem Skirt Pant Start by putting your legs through the sleeves of a shirt that is 1-2 sizes bigger than your normal size. Make sure buttons are facing front as you do this. Next take the collared part of the shirt and bring it up to your waist and fasten the buttons. It should be tight enough but still loose enough to sit at your lower waist. This creates a skirted panel much like a harem pant. You can also try wearing this as a skirt and wrapping the arms around your waist instead.

trench

Look 3: The Layered Trench Taking two identical shirts, button the left hand side of one shirt into the right hand side of the other shirt. This will look like one massive shirt. Put your arms through the very outer sleeves.  This look is incredibly easy to make and the asymmetrically of the shirts is really interesting when draped over the body!

onepiece

Look 4: Harem Skirt Jumper Following the instructions of the Harem Skirt Jumper (look #2) and throw on a shirt with a matching print or color to create a unified jumper look. Using shirts that are a few sizes bigger than you would usually take will give you a relaxed fit and look.

STYLE MUSE: Le Femme Nikita (1990)

By in

One of the earliest film’s by French director Luc Besson (Leon, the Professional & Fifth Element) whose known for his ultra-stylish and visually mind-boggling sci-fi films. The film is based on Anne Parillaud’s character, Nikita (named after an Elton John song) who plays a stylishly bad ass top secret spy.

Nikita’s transformation from a quirky, bad girl, drug addicted street punk to a sleek ladylike assassin takes us on an epic fashion thriller. Enter her punky print oversized button downs, cut out wide brimmed hats, a slinky little black dress, and boxy structured coats; all of which were easily effortless without thinking and could not pose a threat to society like her character. Scroll through as we look back on some of Le Femme Nikita’s stylish moments…

All in the Details: Subtle Shifts

By in

We appreciate the smallest of details and believe these subtleties are the things that bring your daily ensembles to the next level. Asymmetrical cuts, a slight dip of a hem or a fresh pop of color are all small things that will do heavy lifting with your everyday go-to pieces.

The Fifth Label ‘Safe and Sound’ Shirt Dress

8Y2C3549_blackshirt_uc copy

The slight dip and hemline of the dress is what makes this dress cool and slightly sporty.

We dig the boxy fit and tomboy-ness of it.

‘Stevie’ Dress

8Y2C3652_whitedress copy

What’s sweet about this dress is that not only does it remind us of Stevie Nicks (Fleetwood Mac, anyone?) but the asymmetrical cut and fringe is what gives the piece movement all around.

Teal High Waist Pant

pant8Y2C3562 copy

These teal lightweight trousers have a relaxed silhouette that is cozy and looks as easy-going as it feels.

Tomato Cropped Knit Sweater Skirt

set8Y2C3425

What we love most about this knit combo is it’s bright red tomato hue that matches perfectly with neutral colors for fall. Layer separately or go all in for a monochromatic look.

Yet still, no matter where she was vacationing to or lounging around in, Francoise always kept it simple and never overdone in classic miniskirts, easy babydoll dresses, and slim fitting trousers that paired perfectly with her signature long locks and pouty lips.
