As soon as we came across Baukjen this summer, we couldn’t wait to tell you all about our encounter with the brand and their upcoming collection from which we had the chance to choose a few pieces to create outfits that easily transition from office looks to weekend brunches. The collaboration was, what you could call, very smooth. We mainly focused on choosing laid-back, everyday items which women all over the world could wear and style effortlessly.
As you’ll see below, we paired our Baukjen items with elementary pieces that most of us already own, such as black or blue jeans, sneakers, and coats. What we enjoyed most about our experience is not only the great quality of the clothing (think 100% cashmere and leather) but the facility to style each piece together for a great and striking result. We believe this is due to the versatility of the apparel, thanks to their uncomplicated yet modern cuts that are easily mixed and matched.
As soon as we received the pieces, we attentively styled the looks together and spent a good afternoon styling founder of TWC, Kira. As we put her a bit outside her comfort zone, she quickly felt at ease and absolutely aced her street-style posing snaps. Check out her looks below after learning more about the London-based brand, and tell us what you’d pick out of their current collection!
The charming nature of the company comes from the fact that it’s an intimate, family run business. They’re a closely knit team of designers and pattern cutters, working together to create new and innovative clothing. The brand focuses on making the everyday working woman as comfortable and trendy as possible wherever they go.
Busy lifestyles can really affect a women’s style and the way she feels about herself. A simple, comfortable sweater can truly put anyone in a better mood. We can’t think of anything worse than going to work and feeling that itchy or tightness around the hips all day long. Not to mention the striking effect a confident woman can have for the people around her, especially in the workplace.
Let’s start with our favorite look: a laid-back pair of mom jeans perfect for the office, paired with simple heels for a last minute meeting. The navy Baukjen turtleneck is the definition of a wardrobe staple. Finally, it’s all in the detail with this leopard print clutch bag, which brings some boldness to the look.
Now onto the ideal working gal look. This outfit is inspired by the edgy yet classic businesswoman. Here we stayed on a classic one-color tone from head to toe. The Baukjen leather pencil skirt is high waisted and defines your waist, giving you the freedom to pair it with a simple turtleneck, a t-shirt or even a button-down shirt. This look is the absolute work-to-drinks attire. So chic yet so simple.
We love the athletic-chic trend and here’s how Baukjen nailed it. We’ve got a major soft spot for these Isla Trousers which you can easily pair with both sneakers as well as heels for a night out. We decided to wear them with a simple white shirt, either tucked-in or baggy on top, depending on your mood. To cover up, we added a long coat or cardigan to bring that perfect finish for a relaxed yet tailored office look.
As we were sitting down and exploring the Baukjen lookbook, we immediately fell in love with this tailored blazer. For this outfit, we decided on two different looks with the same blazer to give you a good idea of its versatility. A well-fitted jacket can be the star item of any outfit, whether worn with a simple tee and jeans, or a leather skirt. Which look would you rather adopt?
And finally, let’s finish off with two everyday looks. The first is this polka dot blouse, matched with a pair of leather pants and black ankle boots. Its light and sheer texture is practical especially when dealing with warm subway rides or meeting rooms, and we love the come-back of the polka dot! Our second look is a laid back chic option for a warmer fall day like today. Don’t put your white trousers away just yet as they make the ideal in-between season staple, especially with a comfortable long-sleeved ribbed top by Baukjen!
