London Closets: Katie Kova

  • Day 1: I can’t even say which piece in this outfit I like the most -- it combines all of my everyday favorites: a pair of Rag&Bone boyfriend jeans, Isabel Marant bomber jacket and a nude tailored bodysuit by my friend’s fashion label, A.Alexandr.

  • Day 2: I think this Christopher Kane sweatshirt is one of my favorite pieces in my wardrobe. Not only because it captures a motif of Russian Suprematism -- my greatest inspiration -- but also because of the movement in the beautiful fringe. Nothing else needed except for perfectly tailored pants and a pair of cult Manolo chaos sandals.

  • Day 3: I decided to dress down this gorgeous satin jacket by pairing it with matching emerald lace-up sandals and a blue denim skirt.

  • Day 4: Summer is all about pastels.

    Paul & Joe pants -- similar here, Carven top, Céline clutch, Woodsun sunglasses, KOVA choker
  • Day 5: Quite a different outtake on an all time classic, the little black dress. I styled it with a pair of slip-ons and a contrasting white knot clutch.

  • Day 6: I love buying something authentic when traveling, especially when you can incorporate it in your wardrobe afterwards. This crisp white dress is one of my recent purchases made in one of my favorite places, Mykonos. It is designed by a Greek designer (Ergon) who makes everything by hand in his studio right in the centre of the city.

Katie Kova is the Founder and Creative Director of Kova Jewels. She’s also the Queen of the Fun Twist, if you ask me. It makes sense: one peek at her jewelry and you’ll see she has an eye for a simple and yet somehow surprising kind of beauty. The exact same could be said of her wardrobe. Her style, six days of which you can click through above, is clean and almost minimal, often drawing your eye to a single stunning accent piece.

At first glance, you might think she’s just wearing jeans and a t-shirt, an all-black outfit or a plain white dress, but you’d be wrong! Not that you’d miss it — how could you miss a colorful coat, rainbow tassels, fringed piping? She has an eye for detail and is the perfect example of how playful editing can be.

I really mean it, click through above for proof!
