Elegant and oh, so relaxed… These newly interpreted classics in red and midnight blue from the 09/2018 issue of BurdaStyle magazine are a splash of nonchalance and irresistible fashion charm.


The perfect mix of serious and relaxed – typical French fashion. This trench dress includes shoulder tabs, lapels and a tying band at the waist. Choosing to sew it in a midnight blue cotton is a crowning touch. A blouse or top worn underneath on cooler days makes it a winner for the changing seasons as a simple top is a great option for the waning warm days in between.


Mini pleats at the shoulder cap are a beautiful accent on this dress at the shoulder line and the swinging skirt gets a boost from the flowing viscose fabric. Style tip: Add an extra accent at the drawn-in waistline with a wide belt.


Get a stretch to the look of the legs with these ankle skimming, slightly tapered to the hem trousers. The wide waistband gets decorated with tabs and sophisticated golden buttons.


Today a peek of the shoulder, tomorrow a bit of decolleté: This top with the XL collar is flex to follow your mood and style. The simple lines of the cut also make it a great choice for beginning sewists.


Overcut shoulders are very flattering for this style with the matching tying belt. It is a comfortable style that simply works for every shape. The delicate stripes are a pleasant alternative to a classic maritime look.


This basic shirt sewn with a soft jersey is versatile and quick to sew. Wear it with or without the self-belt, or wear it partially tucked into the trouser band for a cool look.


All eyes are on you with this lightly tailored caban jacket in a radiant red wool. Panel seam pockets and a walking slit in back are practical – and comfortable extras. A tab sewn into the back panel seams adds some extra shape.

    Wide waist band is great for comfort, and princess-seamed legs allow for a nice fit around the tush / hips / tummy. But tapered capri pants look good on the 1% of the population that wishes they were bigger of hip and shorter of leg.

    TI might try these and adjust for a straight leg full length version.

    Some nice styles here. Trench dress and pea coat especially. I’m inclined to think that there is no “walking slit” in the hip length pea coat though! Seems to be a typo repeated from the magazine.
