Style Notes: Beatrice Gutu of The Fashion Cuisine channels Audrey Hepburn in the most modern way possible—the raw hems, mini sunglasses and V-neck shoes bring a '50s silhouette into the here and now. Her look? Vintage Dior from Vestiaire Collective.
Yes, they're finally back in stock.
Style Notes: If you're looking for a way to pep up the faux-fur coat you've had for years, here's the answer. Soraya Bakhtiar's fuzzy jacket (from a cool French brand called Fuzz Not Fur) + cropped kick-flares + silver flats is an unexpected but actually quite easy combination.
This looks so much more expensive, don't you think?
Style Notes: Ada Oguntudo has definitely talked us into buying a pair of snake-print knee-high boots—just how good do they look with a menswear-inspired coat?
These also lace up at the back.
Style Notes: Courtney Trop of Always Judging is a trusted source for out-of-the-box ideas, and this tartan and pink corduroy mix is definitely not one we could have predicted—pretty meets punk.
Even if you don't wear a whole suit, consider some pink cords as your new jeans.

Cost-effective outfit transformer, comin' right up.

The dream ticket.
Style Notes: Carmen Grace Hamilton of Chronicles of Her has the casual wardrobe of our dreams. She's given this trusted formula of blazer and denim a reboot via her skinny shades and red lipstick.
This feels very French to us.

Definitely worth saving up for.
Style Notes: Maria Bernad's neutral outfit is beautifully punctuated with red accessories from head to toe. We're also rather taken with her vintage Dior saddlebag.
Vintage Dior bags are making a comeback.
Style Notes: Ellie from Slip Into Style has a genius idea for relaxed party dressing, and we're more than into it. What you lack in warm outerwear, you'll make up for in furry accessories.
