 Esme Vie is a new fashion brand available at luxury retailers like Harrods and Moda Operandi, among others. The clothing line draws inspiration from the 1950s and 1960s, reviving the classic timelessness associated with the style icons of that time period (Grace Kelly, Audrey Hepburn and Jackie Kennedy). Their "beauty made to wear" designs evoke simplicity, femininity, and classiness. Adding playful details like floral arrangements and fur collars to the impeccably tailored and luxurious fabrics, Esme Vie holds a unique place in the haute couture market. 
The clothes are absolutely beautiful and I would love to own a number of items in the collection! I can't even fathom the price-point (the line holds trunk show-only sales with its luxury retailers partners at the launch of new seasons), but I am certain the clothes cost an arm & a leg! I know I would LOVE to wear the pieces, but in the meantime looking at their Instagram account will have to suffice...

Trini González

At some point last summer I kept finding myself clicking 'like' on all of these similar, chic looks in my Instagram feed. I am not sure exactly how I came across Trini's Instagram account, but it has easily become one of my favorites for style inspiration! 
Known for classic color schemes, timeless luxuries (Burberry, Chanel, Ferragamo), uptown statement pieces mixed with downtown basics, and no-fuss cosmetology (simple hair & little/no make-up); Trini's style is so effortless - rich details paired with graceful simplicity that will last for decades. 
French chic meets Spanish streets.

Wildly Cool Style Tips from Vintage Vogue

Many of these suggestions are great!

Scrunch up your sleeves to make your outfit feel more lived in. 

Layer an open, colorful jacket underneath a neutral coat.

Gold accessories will always dress up your outfit. 

Wear your bracelets over your sleeves. 

The easiest prints to match are florals and checks. 

Pull your collar up over a furry stole. 

When you have nothing to wear, put on a striped shirt and white pants. 

Layer a dress over trousers.

Layer a cardigan over a shirt, and top it with a blazer. 

Flip one side of your jacket back over your hips to reveal your trousers. 

A statement necklace can dress up any LBD. 

An undone buttondown. 

A duster coat looks cool over just about anything. 

Belt your coat to show off your figure. 

Dressing head to tow black is so slimming. 

Wear an undone tie as a scarf.

Make sure your patent boots have a low heel, to keep your outfit from looking too provocative. 

Mix small and large versions of the same print. 

Try a double collared look. 

Tie a scarf around your neck like a turtleneck. 

Ruffle-adorned bikinis create the illusion of curves. 

Layer statement necklaces of a jacket. 

Dress down a ball gown skirt with a knit sweater.
