Taking A Look At Baukjen & WIWT

Morning ladies today I want to talk about simple, classic tailoring that will stand the test of time, last a lifetime & can quite simply be brought bang up to date with just a few key accessories.

I think the older we get it's fair to say that we all own a few key pieces that fit this description that are brought out to play year after year, that make us feel good & we never tire of wearing.

Now I don't know if you've recently taken a peek at Baukjen, but they're a brand whose whole collection could quite easily fit the above.

To show you what I mean I've created a couple of outfits made entirely from their SS16 range - both timeless, ageless in terms of being age appropriate & both elegant in their own ways.  Plus with a few changes in accessories each outfit ould be brought out to play time & time again.

For the first look I've gone with a classic off the shoulder jumpsuit styled simply for an evening.  I don't know about you but I think there's something very sexy about an off the shoulder look without being too out there.  Plus of course you could so easily style this look up with a biker jacket or tuxedo jacket to create another outfit.

For the second look I've gone with separates that make great wardrobe additions that could all be intermixed with pieces in our wardrobes.  I think we all know by now the benefits of a great biker jacket & can a girl ever have enough jeans?!

Look 2

If you're like me & seem to wear jeans constantly most the year round then it's always nice to find an alternative that is still 'jean' like in appearance but something a little bit different when you fancy a break from the norm.  So these striped relaxed boyfriend trousers fit the bill perfectly, which I've been luckily enough for Baukjen to send me to style.

As you can see from this close up of the stripes the white against the navy is a lovely fresh contrast & just shouts summer to me.  Perfect for throwing on with a classic white shirt, simple tee or even dressed down with a sweatshirt.

Made from 57% cotton, 41% polyester & 2% elastane the trousers are a lovely thick fabric with just the right amount of stretch.  Plus as you can see from the below picture they fit just above the hips so perfect for keeping in any unwanted lumps & bumps.

For their first appearance I've decided to go for a casual all blue look but I'm already planning various outfits which include teaming them with a pretty white broderie top come the summer months & a grey cashmere sweater when the weather is a bit cooler.  Size wise I would say they're pretty true to size.  I'm wearing a size 8 & as you can see the trousers have a lovely relaxed fit without being too loose & baggy.

So ladies what are your thoughts on Baukjen - is it a brand you regularly shop in, or do you just skim through at the start of the season?  For me their collection makes the perfect capsule wardrobe & is certainly a brand worth keeping an eye on, not to mention taking advantage of when there's a sale on.  Talking of which today is the last day of their mid-season sale, up to 60% off, see here to grab a bargain!  After all wardrobe classics are the perfect excuse to get 'clicking that button' ;-)  Plus if you love the trousers as much as I do Baukjen have kindly given me a discount code to share with you, simply use code MYMIDFASH15 at the checkout to get 15% off the trousers, with the code being valid for the next two weeks :-)

Have a lovely day & I'll see you in the morning.
