    I’m trying to find a subtle way to express my love for the minimal greatness that are the outfits above. Where do I start? It’s not only that they are absolutely effortless and highly appropriate for this ever-sunny weather but it’s also that they have this innate attitude in them. Think about it. If these outfits were a person they'd be, let’s say, Katherine Hepburn: feisty and beautiful.

    I’ve always admired people who look like they’re at peace with their clothes and that’s always what I aim to feel like myself. It’s clear when we’re not ourselves in them, even the tiniest fidgeting gives us away.

    That’s why I find it quite refreshing how we become simpler and more appreciative of “less is more” as we grow older—or at least that is the case for me. I don’t think I ever painted my face with makeup or overdid my hair since I got to my 20’s. If anything, I’ve become more appreciative of things which before I saw as unfashionable or uncool… Can you tell?

    I do not know and do not understand why do we do that to ourselves—why we relentlessly put makeup on to “look” more beautiful, why do we overdo it with clothes to look more “put together”—Shouldn’t we instead "be" beautiful and shouldn’t we wear clothes that make us feel comfortable with ourselves and not look like someone else? Well, that’s my two cents.

    What I’m trying to say here is, man! How I wish I had these in my closet. I could wear those open-front blouses and high-waisted trousers religiously... and I have the feeling that many of you would too. As if we needed one more reason to want them, the ones above are made out of 100% raw silk.

    So is this vintage-inspired trend a yes or a no for you?
