I'm always happy to find new websites. It is often easy to stick to the main players in the fashion e-commerce world, so any suggestions and recommendations are always welcome. Even more so if the items in question are not available to buy where I live and appear to be very much within my budget. Berlin-based DefShop is one such on-line store which has been brought to my attention, stocking everything from Fashion to Streetwear. This is a store for both men and women, today I will focus just on the women's side and pick out some of my favourite pieces.
Although marketed more as a 'Streetwear' site, personally I am not so much a 'Street-Fashion' wearer but always gravitate towards 'Classic Pieces'. So my challenge was to find some clothing that would fit in with my classic style. I like well-designed items that can be worn in many ways and mostly accessorised with my various shoes, handbags and pieces of jewellery.
I think there are many items in a girl's wardrobe that can be deemed classic. A perfectly tailored jacket, the inevitable little black dress, a crisp blouse or shirt, a striped tee and well fitting knee-length skirt. Here are a selection from the more fashion-focused items available on the site and an example of some 'Classic' items I am so fond of...
A selection of jackets and blazers.
By Vero Moda and Fresh Made.
Lots of stripy tops and some which are a little more dressy, as well as some classic shirts.
By Only Malou, Urban Surface, Miss Sixty and Vero Moda.
And finally some pretty dresses, again some of which could be dressed up for nights out, lots more stripes and other very summery casual daywear.
By VILA, Vero Moda and Pepe Jeans.
