Focus: Burda Style Issue 02/2021: Exotic Styles

While travels to distant lands may not be within reach, we can still emulate the feelings of world tours and laid-back vacations with these lovely wanderlust pieces featuring exotic patterns and utilitarian details.

Linen Jacket and Kimono-Style Tunic

Veste en lin et tunique style kimono


What makes this linen jacket so charming? It has been quilted, lined, and embellished with contrasting cuffs! This light piece is particularly fun to wear in spring when you can throw it on for a comfortable, chic look. And good news! This gorgeous model with self-finished edges is only 2 points and easy enough for even the most beginner sewers. Also, check out the bold and stylish V-neck tunic, which features two long sashes that can be tied at the waist. What a lovely cache-coeur illusion! The pretty Japanese pattern makes this even more posh.

Khaki Coat and Tie-Skirt

Manteau kaki et jupe à liens


The classic trench shakes it up with two storm flaps at the front and back for a modern twist to a favorite look. The discrete high collar falls into a fabulous square neck and the placket closes through large invisible fastenings. Plus, we love the slanted pockets! This model is as classy as it is fashionable. This piece would pair perfectly with the incredibly unique skirt cut from pretty floral print that features a drawstring closing 10 cm from the waist. Sporty and feminine unite to create a very trendy but timeless skirt.

Balloon-Sleeve Top and Safari Dress

T-shirt manches bouffantes et robe saharienne


This simple and sophisticated model in fine knitted jacquard mesh to the left plays on noble details such as the delicate balloon sleeves to distinguish its look. Deep box pleats in the upper sleeve are open at the top and fastened together for a particularly striking style. The bodice of the dress to the right is Safari-inspired and features deep, large pockets cut on a slant, a square neck at the back and front, and a crisscross look with tiny placket in the middle. Subtle details come together for a beautiful outcome!


Harem Pants and Shirt with Cowl Neck

Pantalon sarouel et t-shirt col bénitier


Large at the waist and upper legs, these innovative harem pants taper towards the bottom for a piece that is fun, fresh, and trendy! These trousers can easily be worn in town thanks to various elegant details such as the high waist and belt loops, deep pockets, and zippers at the hems. And we love the fresh print paired with this simple shirt fashioned with a sophisticated cowl neck and side draping at the waist. You have everything you need to make your favorite spring top!
