The best part about Monday is Tuesday — that triumphant march toward the second day of the week, which offers promise that the middle is coming and therefore, so is the end. But getting there can sometimes be so emotionally taxing and consuming that you forget to get dressed. As in, leave the house naked. In the nude. For everyone to see.
Errant pubic hairs, puffy left nipple and all.
But we’re fighters, you know? And as a result of that, we forcibly put flapping ducks in their rows to ensure that even the most severe case of The Naked Tuesday as propelled by The Mondays can’t happen to us. So, up this week to drive this point home: German freelance writer Claire Beermann, who, through five outfits — one for every day now through Saturday — proves that winter doesn’t have to suck.
Look 1, or the artist formerly known as Indiana Jones Attends an Arctic Fashion Week enmeshes a vintage hat with a black Uniqlo turtleneck and similarly dark shorts and boots by Marc by Marc Jacobs and Kenzo, respectively, topped off by a Wood Wood jacket that delivers the tropical hope all icicle-doomed individuals yearn for this month.
Look 2, or the artist formerly known as Nordic Superstar with Flawless Skin and Therefore No Reservations About Donning a Sweater that Says Acne on it includes a pale blue Topshop dress worn under an Acne sweatshirt, paired with the same Kenzo boots.
Look 3, or the artist formerly known as Monochromatically-Inclined Hipster Ostrich with Sparkly Shoes to Loafer, not Boot, is perfect for your next office happy hour. Both the blazer and black under-top are Tibi, the sweater is Peter Jensen, the jeans are Levi’s and the shoes are vintage.
Look 4, or the artist formerly known as Emily Post Discovers a Beanie and a Pair of Pants, Pairs Them with a Cropped Jacket and Celestial Shoes, reinterprets that which is truly office apropos with a Roma e Toska dress & tweed jacket, St. Emile blazer, Cos pants and Charlotte Olympia pumps. Per the beanie — it was hand knit by her grandmother. Hand knit!
And finally, look 5, or the artist formerly known as Lounge Around in Denim and Track Pants and Live Life Everyday Like It’s Sunday marries a Marques’Almeida top to Acne pants, Fratelli Rossetti shoes and jacket from & Other Stories.
Wasn’t that great?
