En Mode Ivy League

Nothing frilly or fussy, capture the classic elegance of the ’60s by reintroducing navy blazers, tweed sport jackets, khakis, polo shirts and boat shoes into your casual wardrobe.

Adam Gallagher

Who: Adam Gallagher
The fashion world today just would not be complete without its bloggers. Yes, there’s plenty out there for us girls, but fear no more dear gents, we’ve got a gem for you. Let the style of this twenty something, New York hailing force behind I AM GALLA be something to aspire to. 
What: As winter is fast approaching here in the Southern hemisphere (it will come soon, promise), we look to the North for cold weather inspiration. Add depth to sometimes bland winter ensembles by playing with different textures and colour combinations. What can seem like clashes on the surface- shades of purple, double denim- can really pop with the right layers. Make knits, vests, and flannel your new best friends if you haven’t already, and let the results surprise you.

Nicole Richie

Who: Nicole Richie
As one of the most prominent fashion icons of our generation, Nicole Richie rose to recognition as Paris Hilton’s other half during her time on The Simple Life. She’s now a mentor on NBC’s Fashion Star and wife to Joel Madden. 
What: Though her star in the fashion universe (pun not intended) has been fading, Nicole made a triumphant return during her time across the pond for Paris Fashion Week. Of special note is her appearance in Anthony Vaccarello at the CR Fashion Book Party, looking quite the monochromatic vision. Accessories were kept to a simple set of contrasting stack bangles, complementing her Valentino clutch and pointed suede Jimmy Choos. Her slicked back ‘do only amped up the sophistication and all we can say is: Welcome back, Nicole.

Makeup-less models from their first castings- a fascinating set of polaroids from Douglas Perrett’s “Wild Things”. Oh, how far they’ve come!

And thus ends the mass import from Tumblr. Phew! Hope everyone enjoys the posts, feel free to comment and drop us any suggestions!

Kate Bosworth

Who: Kate Bosworth
If you don’t know her for those killer mismatched eyes, you may have seen her around as the new face of UK fashion street chain TopShop. Remember her crooning ‘Winter Wonderland’ this past Christmas? 
What: As Spring and Autumn begin to kick in all over the world and wardrobes ride the in-between, we’re all for finding that perfect balance- a look that’s not too heavy, not too light. Kate definitely hits the nail on the head in a two-tone J.W Anderson for TopShop denim shirt, paired with this Floral Jacquard Skirt and Proenza Schouler PS1 clutch. Some added height in the form of wedged sneakers gives the look a sporty edge that is transeasonal and versatile, another perfect everyday staple to take you from day to night

Harry Styles

Who: Harry Styles
One Direction’s flirtatious, curly-haired heartthrob and infamous ex-boyfriend of Taylor Swift. Need we say more? 
What: He may be the baby of the group, but Harry’s casual style often possesses a distinct debonair touch amongst the array of skinny jeans and Converse shoes. He can often be seen in tuxedo or tweed blazers, usually over a casual crew-neck; or on more formal occasions, a simple button-down. Pocket squares and playful accessories give his looks the finishing touch, evoking the perfect English-schoolboy-meets-prepster vibe.
