Sometimes serious and sometimes chilled: These outfits in trendy shades of aqua from the 07/2018 issue of BurdaStyle magazine add a fresh touch to the wardrobe that lasts from morning meetings through after-work socializing.


The slightly flared kick at the hem panel of these narrow 7/8-trousers shapes the figure. A textured draw for the eye is the inlaid pleated band sewn along the pocket openings. Tall women could style these beautifully with mules, and petite women could choose sexy high heels.


This trapezoid-shaped skirt is fantastic for days at the office as well as networking dinners in the evening. It is sewn with a fantasy jacquard and gets its shape from a deep inverted box pleat in front.


Ice blue is perfect! This satin dress – shiny on top and matte below –is wonderfully flattering and accented with a knotted detail at the neckline, barely-there sleeves and a fluid skirt panel.


Elastic casings are the popular trend of the season. This blouse sewn with a fresh stripe and front bustline patch pockets, features three of them – at the neckline, along the sleeve hems and also as a self-belt with a covered buckle to secure it in place.


This look is a mastery of illusion as the front has the appearance of a calf-length pleated skirt and the straight-line of the back has the look of a pair of trousers. This style with a blouse is a great choice for the office. It gets a playful touch for leisure time when matched with a bold sweater.


One style to sew, so many options for wearing! This jersey dress is quick to sew and is designed to give you a variety of fresh and fun finishes. The wide tying bands of the bodice can be twisted, shaped, wrapped and knotted to your heart’s content. It even works as a skirt option when you wrap the bands at the waist and simply let the ends drape.


The crêpe blouse elongates the figure thanks to its plunging neckline and American halter style. Pleat details and a tying band at the waist add definition.


Smoking hot – in this uneven hem style that plays around the knees for a summer must-have. The smocked waistband is sure to draw respectful second glances. The hem is slightly rounded toward the side seam for a bit of extra swing.
