White shirt Wednesdays: A balance of opposites

black and white styled with a silk shirt fall fashion
A retro-chic interpretation on the dress suit combo, balance is back with vengeance. Mixing up high low hems, cropped tops and super-short skirts, its all about playing with extremes.

Whilst the fashion pack are coveting multi-coloured cropped leather combos, we're sticking to a far more refined palette over here at VAUGHAN headquarters. Inspired by the eternal draw of the city of love, we've left our hearts in Paris and whipped up this French-touch interpretation on a hot-to-trot micro trend.

Teaming boxy-cut off jackets with square hemmed minis, this pin-tastic coup de cœur saw long-legged models sashaying across the Boulevard de Cigalles in mid-thigh leather skirts and biker inspired leather jackets for a naughty but nice take on a retro look for the contemporary business woman.

A versatile trend that incorporates an array of different fashion show favourites, creativity is key for this short and sultry two-piece ensemble. Worn with a street edge and clashing colours, incorporate feminine touches to a boxy silhouette with tailored separates and heels that accentuate your luscious long legs!

 We love the irreverent yet chic Le Kooples Parisian aesthetic that is at the heart of this ensemble. A simple yet effective marriage of street style swagger and traditional Breton stripes, this wool blend jumper from the sophisticated French brand marries this short but sweet outfit together in perfect harmony.

Adding a slightly preppy, 60s mod feel to this transitional trend, suit up with a super sleek Dallas cut bomber jacket from the brash and bold girl brand to beat, Filles à Papa. Add a starched, crisp collar on your VAUGHAN Hepburn shirt in 'Lion in Winter' for an edgy, Saint Trinian's accent to this balance of opposites that plays with texture and proportion.

Finished with a structured A-line pleated mini skirt from Hugo Boss that just grazes the garter line, embrace those legs eleven with just a hint of heel with a chunky, boyish pair of Tahari Ryder Chelsea boots that can be worn with some high denier black tights (an optional winter weather addition). Creating an elegant yet relaxed silhouette for work or play, this cropped ode to power pairing looks the part finished with a classy Cambridge leather satchel, cool Ray Ban sunnies and of course, a lick of silky red lippy for the pièce de résistance !

Say bienvenue to this sartorial balancing act in monochrome madness. Team cutting edge French styling with boxy shapes for an Oh La La 60s nostalgia look you just can't say no to!
