If you don’t feel like wearing a suit or if you are attending an event after work, you may need to tweak your attire to fit into both worlds. The trick? Business on top, party on the bottom. Ambiguity at its best.

The IRO store Zurich invited last Saturday together with Bolero magazine to participate in a photo contest for the fashion session #4. The idea was to put together an outfit from a selected number of clothes, and have a photographer take a picture in an outfit with the slogan “red carpet style”. Bolero selected the top 5 outfits and now the winner will be elected in an online voting (–> http://www.boleromagazin.ch/iro-red-carpet-voting).

The first rays of sun have finally arrived and the city is awakening from its winter sleep and foremost depression. It is time to change slowly into summer gear. Layer up, because winter is a sneaky bitch – theĀ  moment you step into the shadow you will freeze, therefore be prepared. A light down jacket will do the trick and it is so slim that you can wear it even under your suit jacket if necessary (see my mix and match article). The one from Duvetica on the picture is not only warm, but is also suitable to hide from evil eyes.

One of the few advantages of winter is the fact that you can wear finally your boots. Usually they are heavy, sturdy, dirty and almost impossible to kill. I think I still own a pair of Timberland Boots back from my Wu-Tang days….
