style jam: modern dressing

This is the first time we're sad to be writing a post, as this is the final set of photos from our fantastically fun Style Jam styling session with Tania & Sam. You must check out their blogs; they are fabulous reads, full of personal anecdotes and styling tips and both girls write with a voice that is so friendly and relatable. I like to think of this final set of photos as an essay on two ways of modern dressing. One is to mix textures à laSam, who pairs a leather and mesh Horace biker jacket with a silk top and eyelet scalloped-hem shorts; the other is to play with layers and cultural-references à laTania, who wore a reinterpreted Japanese kimono jacket with a printed skirt, layered over a silk romper. For us, one of the most greatest things about fashion has always been a sense of unexpectedness; those mind-blowingly inspirational outfits that stylish people such as Tania & Sam put together that make you go, "Brilliant. Why didn't I ever think of that?"
