New York Fashion Week SS 2012...Jourdan

Jourdan Dunn, after Michael Kors, NYC, September 2011.

Love this outfit on Jourdan. Suede shorts, oxfords, an oversized sheer blouse.... Teamed with her messy braid (do you see the tiny threads of leather intertwined in her plait?) it has a faintly urban safari-ish feel.

Recreate Jourdan's Look (kind of):

Slip on a pair of suede shorty shorts: Surface to Air suede shorts, Pepe jeans suede shorts, Donna Karan casual pleated shorts (these aren't suede but have the same feel as Jourdan's shorts), Maison Martin Margiela suede shorts or findersKeepers faux suede shorts

Add a floaty, sheer blouse (great for days when the heat feels unbearably stifling*): Haute Hippie peasant blouse, Winter Kate Pushpa blouse (add a pretty bra or cami underneath), Thomas Wylde Devil's Daughter blouse, Jeunesse Francoise blouse

ASOS Marksy leather brogues, Rag & Bone Hanalei oxfords or Esquivel The Wing Tip brogue

* we haven't had one of these days yet in the UK...although tomorrow promises to reach 23°C. Woot!
