BY ISIDORA – We’re always delighted to receive visitors, and we often have amazing guests in Metzingen. Blogger, influencers and editors on the lookout for fashion trends are enthralled by OUTLETCITY, and always happy to come here for a shopping expedition. However, we’d been looking forward to this visit for so long that we were really quite nervous at the prospect, because we’re such devoted fans of ELLE and its style. Alexandra Link, Deputy Editor-in-Chief at ELLE online, makes an immediate impression, not least because of her unfussy, often colourful mix of styles. She cleverly layers and combines colour tones without being mundane, and adds dashes of colour in just the right place to create a refreshingly natural look that’s hard not to adore.
Alexandra devoted an entire day to strolling through the stores in OUTLETCITY METZINGEN on a quest to find the trends for Autumn 2017 and create three perfect looks. She made several new discoveries, became reinspired by the classics, and scouted around for unusual accessories that would give the outfits that “certain something”.
We met up with her after her expedition, to see what she’d found and to discover the secret to her styling. These are the Autumn/Winter outfits created by Alex:
RED MEETS CAMEL
LEATHER & 60IES
MONOCHROME BUSINESS CHIC
And she shared her secret with us too: she has a special fondness for coats and jackets, especially ones that are brightly coloured or patterned, because they put a final polish on any look. They also score well at Fashion Weeks, because many influencers often go for extreme or edgy outfits to make themselves stand out from the crowd. Alex’s style is more about cool elegance and wearability, because no-one looks good in clothes that are too tight or don’t keep you warm. And she always attracts attention because her style is so perfectly composed and ladylike, while still being right on trend. Not taking yourself too seriously is, in itself, extremely attractive.
