I caught up with my good friend and founder of P.Mai (a bag brand every working woman should know - more on that later), Phuong at her home for some styling tips on our SHALINI crepe top.
The SHALINI top is a piece from our "Wear Anywhere" collection. Its soft, textured crepe fabric (made in France) is wrinkle-free and super breathable, making it your new go-to option for traveling assignments or times when you need to head to a meeting right after a morning workout. And, like all our pieces, it's made in Germany, right here in our Berlin atelier.
Here are two looks we put together with Phuong.
Look 1: Easy Work Look
For a super easy everyday work look, pair the SHALINI top with your favorite work trousers. Since it's Spring, we styled it with light gray for a softer, yet professional look. The thin, patent leather belt rounds out this business outfit with a bit of polish.
GETTING READY TO GO WITH THE P.MAI VALLETTA BACKPACK IN COGNAC
THE ASYMMETRIC NECKLINE DETAIL IS A SIMPLE TOUCH TO UPLEVEL YOUR STANDARD WHITE WORK T-SHRT
If you're a woman like Phuong - always on the go - then you need to get your hands on her Valletta Backpack. The bag packs amazing functionality into such a sophisticated looking piece. Here are its impressive features: a key clasp, water bottle holder (we use ours for our coffee mug), laptop space, tons of inside pockets, and a suitcase strap on the back. The backpack straps are padded so you can say "goodbye" to sore shoulders after a day of traveling. The materials inside and outside the bag are supple yet somehow still durable, and I can't get enough of the matching wristlet that comes with it. I have pretty much replaced my wallet with it. Every time I wear it (which is often), I get several compliments from women I have never met.
Look 2: Weekend Look
We love this weekend look for cool, casual meetups - like drinks with friends at a rooftop or garden bar. The SHALINI top has two layers, making it a good option for when the evenings may turn a bit cooler. Our SANDRA ruffle wrap skirt is a fun alternative to your best pair of blue jeans (which has been my favorite combination for the SHALINI top until now). The skirt adds a bit of flair to the look, but its rich olive tone, especially when worn with nude colored sandals, makes the overall outfit cool and casual.
