Fashion Bloggers and Style From Germany by Global Garbs Founder Lauren Tanaka

Germany is home to some of the most stylish people in the world. It seems like everyday there is a new fashion blogger popping up on the street style scene, or a new “it” designer that just so happens to be from Berlin.

Germans have a keen sense of style, and below are five completely different fashion bloggers who are sporting one major fall trend, which is wearing black and white.

Although wearing black and white can seem so boring, it’s actually quite a statement. The two contrasting colors can look either polished and sleek, cool and hip, or chic and sophisticated. The five women below represent all age ranges, they are all from Germany, yet they are all sporting their version of what they consider to be trending from a black and white trend perspective.

This trend may not be the most outlandish and daring trend of the season, but wearing these two non colors is definitely a look that all major trend setters have thought of as their easy “go-to” outfit to look pulled together and chic. Think of wearing black and white almost like a staple trend that is overall classic depending on how you style each piece.

For example, our first featured blogger Caro Dauer below shows off her feminine yet masculine ensemble with her delicate and subtle floral tunic and leather pants combo that add just the right amount of toughness to her otherwise feminine top half.

Meanwhile, Kaj Lydia pulls off a sportier, almost avant guarde look with slouchy pants, sneakers and white leather jacket. Her hairstyle alone gives you some insight about who she is from a personal style standpoint.

If you’re looking for some amazingly unique pieces from Germany, check out Umasan. Their pieces are masculine yet unisex with interesting cuts and draping. Pair with some white and you’ve got the latest trend seen amongst the Germans and around the world.

Fashion Blogger to Know – Piece, Love and Sole.

Brittany Wilson is the Fashion Force behind the blog Piece, Love and Sole which is about fashion, accessories and New York.

fashion-blogger-interview-piece-love-sole-2

WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO START YOUR BLOG?

When I relocated to New York from the DC area a dear friend suggested that I start a blog to stay connected to fashion. It originally started as a blog about affordable accessories but then I noticed that I was experiencing so many fun things in New York that I wanted to share those too. So the purpose of the blog morphed from just accessories to fashion and New York.

 

WHAT IS THE STORY BEHIND YOUR BLOG NAME?

It’s a different spin on the phrase “Peace, Love and Sole” Piece = as in a piece of clothing or a piece of me, Love = the blog is about things I love, Sole = Shoes…because who doesn’t love shoes.

 

WHAT MAKES YOUR BLOG STAND OUT?

I blog from my view and with my voice. That’s the best part about blogging, you can be an individual.

 

DESCRIBE YOUR PERSONAL/SIGNATURE STYLE?

I like to be comfortable and chic. If you aren’t comfy it shows…and that’s not cute. Dresses are the easiest thing to wear but I love a good graphic tee too. I like to play around with fashion. So one day I’m in boyfriend jeans, a tee and sneakers, the next I could be in a fitted dress and stilettos and then the next day I could be in leather pants and a blouse.

 

WHO IS YOUR #1 FASHION ICON?
Diane Von Furstenberg

 

FAVORITE LOCAL DESIGNERS?

A friend of mine has a clothing line Yunes Swathe, they’ve really grown into something beautiful. I don’t really have any favorites but I definitely love to explore. I think my favorites are usually unique designers that I come across in flea markets.

 

FAVORITE ITEM IN YOUR CLOSET NOW?

My printed sets. I love that you can wear them as one outfit or break the separates apart and make a completely new look

fashion-blogger-interview-piece-love-sole-1

IF YOU WERE TO HAVE LUNCH WITH ANNA WINTOUR AND CARINE ROITFELD WHAT WOULD YOU WEAR? Oh! Probably a black sheath dress, a statement necklace and some killer, strappy shoes

 

SONG YOU HAVE BEEN LISTENING TO THE MOST/ON REPEAT?

Can’t Feel My Face by The Weeknd and IV. Sweatpants by Childish Gambino

 

ANY OTHER BLOGS YOU LOVE?

The Style and Beauty Doctor

 

BIGGEST FASHION MISTAKE YOU EVER MADE?

Ugh, I’m sure there isn’t just one. Years ago I wore a blazer, button down shirt, jean skirt and flat moccasin boots to the club. I just can’t…

 

3 FASHION TIPS?

1) If it’s not comfortable before you leave the house, change.
2) If you have no idea what you want to wear, start with your shoes.
3) Lipstick fixes everything

fashion-blogger-interview-piece-love-sole-3

WHAT IS THE STYLE OF THE CITY YOU LIVE IN AND WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT YOUR CITIES STYLE?

New York is such a fashion mecca but I also love that there are people that live here that aren’t caught up in fashion and do their own thing. To me, that’s the best type of style.

 

WHAT IS YOUR DREAM JOB?

To organize celebrity closets.

 

WHAT WAS YOUR FIRST JOB?

I worked in a dental office in high school

 

WHAT IS YOUR TYPICAL DAY LIKE?

During the week it’s fairly uneventful and I’m ok with that. Work and working out. I may host or attend an event during the evening once a week (with the other company I run with my business partner: Dolls of the City). But I spend a lot of time thinking about what’s next and writing that down in my notebook.

 

GUILTY PLEASURE?

Scrolling through Instagram forever lol

WHAT IS THE STYLE OF THE CITY YOU LIVE IN AND WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT YOUR CITIES STYLE?

Ness: ​breaking hearts 🙂

Fashion Blogger to Follow- Erica Stolman From San Diego

Screen Shot 2015-03-17 at 4.11.02 PM
NAME: Erica Stolman
WEBSITE/BLOG: Fashion Lus – http://www.fashionlush.com/
CITY + COUNTRY: San Diego, United States

 

WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO START YOUR BLOG

I started blogging wayyyy back when 2008, when blogging first became a “thing”. I was in college working towards my degree in Fashion Merchandising & wanted an outlet to share all of my experiences and inspirations, so starting a blog just kinda made sense at that point in my life. At first, it was strictly a hobby as I needed to focus on my education, but once I graduated it took center stage of my life & has now grown into what it is today!

WHAT IS THE STORY BEHIND YOUR BLOG NAME?

Love this question, cause honestly, I don’t think anyone knows!

You know how they call people who get all flirty when drinking a “lush”? Yea, well that’s basically how I get with fashion. Whenever I get a new pair of shoes I love or a bag I’ve been eyeing for a while, I literally get a little buzz off of the buy (aka shoppers high!).

WHAT MAKES YOUR BLOG STAND OUT?

I think the combination of fashion + DIY make my blog stand out. Typically you either find fashion bloggers or DIY bloggers, but rarely both!

DESCRIBE YOUR PERSONAL/SIGNATURE STYLE?

Minimalistic, comfortable, & a little bit 90’s inspired.

WHO IS YOUR #1 FASHION ICON?

Mary Kate & Ashley Olsen combined, always (there basically one person, right?). I know that’s so cliche of me, but I really don’t care, they are amazing in every way.

FAVORITE LOCAL DESIGNERS?

Honestly, when it comes to clothes there aren’t a lot of local designers I know much about here in San Diego. Jewelry though, I am all about JNB Style. The midi rings are my favorite :).

FAVORITE WEBSITES?

Nylon | Refinery 29 | StyleList | IFB | WWD

FAVORITE ITEM IN YOUR CLOSET NOW?

My Alexander Wang Prisma lunchbag purse.

It was seriously sold out everywhere and impossible to find, so I was pretty ecstatic when stumbled upon what I think was the last one on the entire internet!

FAVORITE BOOK, MOVIE + BAND?

Favorite book: Gone Girl (& all books by Gillian Flynn for that matter!)

Favorite movie: Currently: Boyhood | Of All Time: Factory Girl

Favorite band: Currently: HAIM | Of All Time: Fleetwood Mac

IF YOU WERE TO HAVE LUNCH WITH ANNA WINTOUR AND CARINE ROITFELD WHAT WOULD YOU WEAR?

Wow! That’s a hard question. I would probably wear my leather skinny pants, a crisp white v-neck with this pinstriped blazer I just got, & pointy toed ankle boots (preferably the ACNE Loma boots). Keep it simple, always.

SONG YOU HAVE BEEN LISTENING TO THE MOST/ON REPEAT?

Divisionary (do the right thing) by Ages and Ages & Redneck Woman by Gretchen Wilson (don’t know why, but this song gets me pumped!).

FAVORITE E-COMMERCE SITES?

Missguided | Topshop | ASOS | Pixie Market

ANY OTHER BLOGS YOU LOVE?

The Skinny Confidential, Modern Legacy, & Sunday’s Pearl are my daily go-to’s.

BIGGEST FASHION MISTAKE YOU EVER MADE?

Following a trend that I didn’t even like in the first place! Obviously you’ve got to take chances, but don’t just follow trends because other people are. If you don’t like it, stick to your gut!

3 FASHION TIPS?

1. Stay true to yourself/your style
2. Splurge on good jeans (it really makes all the difference)
3. Don’t take it too seriously! Fashion is fun, so get weird with it.

FAVORITE SNACK/ PICK ME UP?

Ginger shots! I started drinking ginger shots in Copenhagen this past year & ever since I’ve been hooked. They give me a ton of energy, strengthens the immune system, aids in digestion, boost metabolism, & detoxifies. You can order them up at your local juice spot or you can make them yourself. Find my personal recipe here.

BLOGS TO FOLLOW- RP INTERVIEWS Rebecca Laurey FROM Amsterdam

wFKR3EjREvOPPLjvMsOQqY161SYpLEri8NthnhSIWpE

NAME: Rebecca Laurey
WEBSITE/BLOG: Raspberry & Rouge – http://raspberry-rouge.com
CITY + COUNTRY: Amsterdam, The Netherlands

 

WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO START YOUR BLOG?

I started out not knowing anything, just because my friend introduced me to blogging and I thought it was a nice way to express myself and my big passion for fashion. I never knew about all the possibilities it could bring me, let alone it becoming my fulltime job.

 

WHAT IS THE STORY BEHIND YOUR BLOG NAME?

I wish I could tell you an incredibly interesting story about my blog name, but I can’t. It’s simply the result of a brainstorm session, in which I only knew that I wanted an alliteration starting with a R (both my and my boyfriend’s name start with the same letter). Also, I didn’t want it to start with fashion or style, since I felt like everyone was doing that already.

 

WHAT MAKES YOUR BLOG STAND OUT?

It’s strange to say this about myself, but I think for me the quality is really important. Photography is the focus on my blog, and I’d like to think this might make me stand out. Next to that I think being yourself is really important, because if you’re you you’re unique.

 

DESCRIBE YOUR PERSONAL/SIGNATURE STYLE?

I think it’s a mix between Scandinavian minimalism and California cool. I LOVE the 70s and 90s when it comes to fashion, so I’m definitely throwing some of that in the mix these days.

 

WHO IS YOUR #1 FASHION ICON?

Jane Birkin. She’s so effortless!

 

FAVORITE LOCAL DESIGNERS?

I really love what Claes Iversen is doing. He’s actually Danish, but lives in Amsterdam. It’s beautifully made and creatively designed.

 

FAVORITE WEBSITES?

I have a few websites I like to check on a daily basis, which include blogs of some of my friends like Zanita’s (http://zanita.com.au). Also: Who What Wear, Daily Mail, Arrows (men’s blog, but I love it).

 

FAVORITE ITEM IN YOUR CLOSET NOW?

Currently, I’m obsessed with my Chloe bag. It’s such a classic and the beige colors are so this season too!

8BUr-ikJnwjiyhWd2YRmvcdkjIFHTZKHzKEniMb-F8A,ugsFiPLiwpCvGOHBrxHDArnlzrneqotn1A1FwiIL4kg

 

FAVORITE BOOK, MOVIE + BAND?

I don’t read as much as I want anymore, unfortunately, simply because I don’t really make the time. I just read Gone Girl which I loved, and preferred over the movie. Notting Hill with Julia Roberts and Hugh Grant is still my all time favorite movie. I don’t really listen to bands, I’m more into house music. My boyfriend is a professional DJ and obviously my fave too 🙂

 

IF YOU WERE TO HAVE LUNCH WITH ANNA WINTOUR AND CARINE ROITFELD WHAT WOULD YOU WEAR? I would definitely wear something that’s really me: flared jeans, oversized sweater or leather jacket.

 

SONG YOU HAVE BEEN LISTENING TO THE MOST/ON REPEAT?

I’ve been obsessed with the Moonlanding mix of Moonwalk away by Goldfish for 2 months now. I’ve heard it for the first time when I was in South Africa in December, and I can’t stop listening to it. So much feeling in that song!

 

ANY OTHER BLOGS YOU LOVE?

Like I said above, my very good friend Zanita is one of my fave girls to follow. I love Aussie blogs in general, so effortless.

 

BIGGEST FASHION MISTAKE YOU EVER MADE?

I don’t think you can really make mistakes when it comes to fashion, but you can definitely make a wrong decision when it’s not based on your personal preference. If you buy clothing just because it’s in fashion, and not because you actually really like it. Everyone prob made that mistake once, for me that probably includes the Birkenstocks. I really liked them on others, but for me it just doesn’t work. I have a pretty awesome pair in my closet that I think I only wore twice.

 

3 FASHION TIPS?

Wear what you like and like what you wear. Don’t over-do it, less is definitely more for me! And last but not least: always pick personal style over what’s in fashion.

 

FAVORITE SNACK/ PICK ME UP?

My guilty pleasure: Coca Cola (regular).

NAME: Della De Leos
WEBSITE/BLOG: The Letter D – www.delladeleos.com
CITY + COUNTRY: Manila, Philippines

 

WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO START YOUR BLOG?

The fact that there could be a good place to dump all my photos inspired me to start a blog! I was also inspired by Rumi Neely whose travel photos are amazing. I myself wanted to have a blog filled with memorable photos too.

 

WHAT MAKES YOUR BLOG STAND OUT?


My blog stands out because it has a lot of art in it. It has everything – Travel, Food, Fashion, Photography, Art and did I mention Art?

 

DESCRIBE YOUR PERSONAL/SIGNATURE STYLE?


That is a very tough question as my personal style always depends on my mood. I would just say it is always emerging and it has to always be classy.

 

WHO IS YOUR #1 FASHION ICON?
 


It would be a tie between fictional character Blair Waldorf and fashion influencer Rumi Neely.

 

FAVORITE LOCAL DESIGNERS?


Vania Romoff, Cherry Veric and Boom Sason.

 

FAVORITE WEBSITES?


Aside from the other blogs I listed below, I love Tumblr! Tumblr is where I get all my inspiration. ♥

My favorite item in my closet right now would be these chunky boots from Light In The Box. They match with any kind of outfit!

 

FAVORITE BOOK, MOVIE + BAND?

My favorite book is no other than The NoteBook by Nicholas Sparks. One Day for my favorite movie. And for my favorite band, it will always be Nirvana.

 

IF YOU WERE TO HAVE LUNCH WITH ANNA WINTOUR AND CARINE ROITFELD WHAT WOULD YOU WEAR?
 


I’d wear this by outfit by Jason Wu

 

SONG YOU HAVE BEEN LISTENING TO THE MOST/ON REPEAT?
 


My Only One by Kanye West ♥

 

BIGGEST FASHION MISTAKE YOU EVER MADE?


Having two patterns at once – a zebra and a checkered pattern on my flats and skirt. Ew!

 

3 FASHION TIPS?

1. Always be classy including when you decide to show some skin – don’t look like a hooker.
2. Dont have too much colors on your clothes! My maximum would be three.
3. Just be comfortable and don’t dress for anybody else but yourself.

 

FAVORITE SNACK/ PICK ME UP?

My favourite snack is Kit-kat. My favorite pick me up line would by Miriam defensor’s “Are you an armpit? Because youre so close to my heart.”
