After watching the French drama series, Blood of the Vine (petit plaisir of episode #298), it became quickly apparent that effortless style was Benjamin Lebel’s associate’s go-to capsule approach. Nearly each episode in which Mathilde appears, she is wearing an oversized jacket/blazer, sleeves pushed up 3/4 or to the elbow, slim jeans, ankle boots, short heels or pointed toe heels and a light-weight tee or camisole underneath. Slung over her shoulder is a shoulder bag, and next to no jewelry, if any, along with simple everyday makeup enabling her natural beauty to glow. Radiant, sensible, yet stylish, letting her work and presence do the talking while her wardrobe supports her daily routine.
Today’s extra Outfit of the Month (see the original O of the M here for January – a three-outfit post) is inspired by this character as such an outfit is a wonderful year-round go-to. Finding an oversized, quality blazer from a trusted designer and at a fair price, perhaps you already have one or more of these items in your closet and just need one more piece to make the look fresh, new and tailored to your life. I do hope you enjoy and may we all step back into style as we gradually step forward into a new year.
