Wonderfully feminine and confident at the same time: Winter looks that combine an elegance of the 40s with marine details from the 01/2018 issue of BurdaStyle magazine. Sophisticated caban jackets, sexy dresses and more to beautifully build the wardrobe this season.


The fit and shape of this dress get an extra boost with shoulder yokes that extend over the top of the shawl collar and naturally, a walking slit in back keeps it easy to move around.


This longer shirt blouse is a touch formal, yet so feminine. A polo placket and piping at the seams, as well as trim topstitched at the cuffs blend beautifully together with decorative small gold buttons in marine style.


Go for the “wow” factor with this dress that follows the curves beautifully! Remarkable details like the shawl collar look, the pockets accented with buttons and gold piping trim also make it a gorgeous sewing endeavor.


Mini pleats at the yoke seam and the sleeve caps drop to the bias cut skirt panel and the whole classic shirt dress gets an amazingly soft touch from the fluid viscose. The detachable neck tie is a beautiful finish.


A very feminine look that is comfortable to pull on and sits in all the right places. Gathering detail at the bustline is a nice accent and the raglan sleeves are cut to have the finished look of a bolero jacket.


This design combines a flair of a modern vintage with a quality herringbone fabric. Leather buttons, a faux fur collar for warmth, a wide fabric band in back and the diagonal darts tailor the style to fit perfectly.


A solid look that can round out (nearly) every outfit, yet with enough fun details to make it a designer standout: A double-breasted caban that draws attention to the asymmetric lapel lines and the slanted welt pockets with an additional red piping accent.


This style sewn in a tweed is a modern nod to the swinging pleated skirts of the 40s. The bib front with the oversized leather buttons is new, though in the vein of classic sailor trousers. The wide waistband dazzles with the multiple lines of topstitching.

    Once again, just a lot of dresses and long shirts. Sometimes plus size girls want pants and shorts too.

    The shawl collar dress is gorgeous, the rest, not so much.
