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.

Music Festival “Way Out West” Musician Amanda Bergman Talks Style and Fashion.

The Swedish Music Festival “Way Out West” held in Gothenburg equals Coachella for a place to scout fashion and style. Style Influencer Kristina Berg of Stockholm, Sweden had the chance to speak with musician Amanda Bergman.

She comes from a small town in the country, is the youngest of five siblings, and for most of her life has worn functional clothing. Amanda Bergman plays in one of today’s most hyped Swedish bands, Amason.

Read below as Amanda shares her sense of style and more.

WHAT ARE YOU INSPIRED BY IN YOUR CLOTHING STYLE?

Since I grew up in the country, I’ve had lots of animals around me for most of my life. As a result, I’ve always had some form of cowboy romanticism as inspiration. The most important thing when I was growing up was to have functional clothes and to always remember to wear a good pair of jeans.

 



WHAT IS THE ARTICLE OF CLOTHING YOU USE THE MOST?

What I prefer to wear are suits. I’d really like to somehow represent the form of femininity. I’ve never been much for girly clothes, and I was 23 years old the first time I wore a dress. Same thing goes for shoes. I wore my first high heels a year ago. Usually I just wear boots.

 



WHERE DO YOU THINK YOUR MASCULINE SENSE OF STYLE COMES FROM?


Since I was the youngest of five sisters, I’ve always had this boy projection from my parents. I’ve had to represent the boy that they never had – much of it comes from that.

 

WHAT RANGE OF COLORS DO YOU SEE WHEN YOU LOOK IN YOUR CLOSET?

I’ve actually always loved color; my favorite color is wine red. Don’t know how long I’ve been looking for a wine red suit, but I’ve never been able to find one.

 



DO YOU WEAR LOTS OF COLOR DURING A STAGE PERFORMANCE, TOO?


The thing is, I usually block out those kinds of thoughts, to do something extra on stage. Right before our show today, we decided on what clothes we’d wear, but I just pick out what feels right. To me, it feels unhealthy to be too planned. There are lots of people who really express themselves on stage with their clothes, and I think that’s just fine, but I haven’t really gotten there, it’s mostly a thought that stresses me out.

 



DOES YOUR MUSIC GO HAND IN HAND WITH YOUR CLOTHING STYLE?
Since I’m so much on the inside of my own music, it’s hard to make a fair assessment of that. Obviously it’s my performance, and what I’m wearing is another expression of my personality. The thing I think about most is my role as a woman on stage. I think all women do amazing things, but what I want to represent is an alternative to the usual image of femininity. So it would be hard for me to go out on stage in sheer material, even if I might wear something like that in private. It might also have something to do with the fact that I play in a band with four men, where I’m the singer, which still makes me feel like a stereotype, even though I try to blend in.

I think that your way of expressing yourself is a process, and that all the time you’re learning how to relate to it and what you actually think. Later in life, I think I’ll have an even more conscious way of dressing.

 



WHERE DO YOU USUALLY BUY CLOTHING?

Ultimately, the most important thing for me is to buy what I like. Mostly, I buy secondhand. As far as brands go, I’ve had a long relationship with the brand Hope. One Swedish designer I really like a lot is Rodebjer, and their suits. 

FINALLY,

 

AMANDA: HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE?

A sense of humor and an attitude that lets me jump on the next motorcycle!

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

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

Interview with Photographer Jena Cumbo

WHAT MADE YOU WANT TO BECOME A PHOTOGRAPHER?

I actually grew up in Rochester, NY, home of Kodak, so camera’s were always around growing up, but I never thought I’d make a career of it until much later. My parents were very working class and it was expected that if I went to college it would be for math or science because that’s what I was good at in high school. So I went to college for Biology at the University of Hartford in CT, but when I was choosing schools I strategically picked colleges that also had an art program so that I could take painting and photography classes too. I was totally smitten by the Hartford Art School, my classes and the friends that I met there. I ended up changing my major half way through my second year of college. To my parents chagrin, I became a painting and photography major. After undergrad, I went to SUNY Buffalo and earned an MFA in photography.

WHAT IS THE MOST EXCITING PART OF YOUR JOB?

I’m freelance, and I do a lot of different things, so everyday is different. I kinda thrive on the excitement of having to throw my schedule around based on what comes up and sometimes even what falls through and how to best use my time.

 

WHAT HAS BEEN THE BIGGEST CHALLENGE?

Marketing and pricing, I’m a horrible business person. Constantly trying to get more clients and retain the ones that I already have.

WHAT IS SPECIAL OR UNIQUE ABOUT YOUR PHOTOGRAPHY?

I think I’m good at making people feel comfortable in front of the camera. My work can be a little bit campy, I’m not afraid of trying silly things, working with props, or sometimes I create a situation or activity for the model/person to do to get a good shot and tell a story.

 

WHAT WOULD BE YOUR DREAM SHOOT?

working for TEEN Vogue or Roxy – I like shooting youthful, active fashion-lifestyle the best.

 

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE SHOOT YOU HAVE DONE SO FAR?

I did a shoot for Zooey Magazine where I prop styled a whole room to make it look like a kitchen and had two models from APM ‘making cookies’. It was a really fun and cute shoot.

Zooey Magazine Shoot

WHAT PHOTOGRAPHERS INSPIRE YOU?

Ben Watts, Jason Kibbler, Craig McDean, Tierney Gearson, Jeff Wall, Lauren Greenfield (I use to assist Greenfield)

 

WHAT WAS YOUR FIRST JOB?

I shot for my Biology professor’s summer internship program with Nasa. We were doing things like soil samples and the whole thing had to do with water, it paved the way for me doing lots of Art Department event photography for years to come.

 

WHAT ADVICE DO YOU HAVE FOR STARTING OUT PHOTOGRAPHERS?
Assist. It’s the best education, I learned way more about lighting and the business from all the photographers and various sets I worked on than I ever did in school.
Also, don’t compare yourself/your work to others too much – I try to limit my time on social media because I am victim of that myself. I think its more important to shoot a lot and figure out what your own voice is that way.
