Sophisticated details, cool cuts and exciting prints: These looks from the 08/2019 issue of BurdaStyle magazine play with the masculine and feminine elements for a style that is just as much fun in the office as in the city.


The stylish multi-purpose look! A relaxed cut trouser with wide waistband, sewn with a stretch twill can last the long work days looking great and staying comfortable.


Tomorrow is one of those rush days? This fantastically printed tunic with the tying collar is an absolute stunner and doesn’t require much more styling – basic trousers, a simple shoe choice, and you are done!


A beautiful 60s detail: The wide neckline bands are closed with two oversized covered buttons – with a peek of skin from the small slit. For a look that has more definition for the silhouette, shorten the pattern a few centimeters and wear this style tucked into a trouser or skirt waistband.


This blouse plays flawlessly with the counterbalance of masculine and feminine details. Collarless, a plunging neckline, pleated cuffs in a white poplin … and it looks as fabulous with jeans as it does with a pencil skirt.


This straight line cut tunic with the side tying shawl collar and cropped sleeves flatters every figure type. Darts at the bustline help it sit perfectly along the figure.


Here comes the cool 60s version of the LBD. Contrast color bands are featured on the slightly flared style and a black button to accent. The mini slit and cropped sleeves give a visual stretch to the look.


These culottes shape the figure beautifully. Covered buttons accent the wide yoke and practical hip yoke pockets are included.


The asymmetric sewn-in zipper can be used to close the jacket fully, or with a partial opening to let the collar drape open. The sleeves are sewn with a faux leather for an edgy vibe.
