Inspiration: Dita Von Teese - Winter Chic

As we settle into winter I have been fighting the urge to hibernate in jeans and long sleeve t-shirts layered under sweaters. Chic, cozy, winter dressing is possible and who better to gain inspiration from than Dita?

Here are my pics for chic winter dressing via the Queen of Burlesque:

I LOVE this look - particularly because I am smitten with the resurgence of the tea length skirt this winter. I would, of course, add tights to this outfit.

Surprise, surprise, an all black outfit. I would wager that nothing Ms Von Teese is wearing in this photos is actual vintage, but look at the power of a curled 'do and a red lip - it adds instant old world glamour to black sweater and skirt.

It would be blasphemy not to include a look with a great coat - since in my part of the world it's the fashion item most people see in the winter when you're out and about. As far as I'm concerned you MUST have a great winter coat and co-ordinating accessories. It's a fashion saver for any manner of outfit. I love this military inspired coat paired with thick tights and pretty shoes.



  1. I love the first Outfit! I really want a skirt like this.

  2. Oh, Dita! ♥ she is such an inspiration - again and again. I would wear everything she wears.

  3. Very vintage winter inspirational! I love the length of her skirts in these-- super long without looking hausfrau or Amish. Thanks for the fashion food for thought! :)

  4. I really love these photos, thank you for sharing! I have a skirt very similar to that first one she's got on, only I am tall so it's not as long on me. Do you find that you have to wear heels rather than flats with those skirt lengths?

    Anyway, I'm newish to your blog, and I know you've already had the Liebster award but I mentioned you in my post here as worthy of another one:

    1. Hi! Thank you so much for the nomination!

      I do wear heels with longer skirts. I'm only 5'3" and I feel like they swallow me up a bit in flats. Heels provided some much needed length and get the skirt hem higher off the ground.


  5. the first outfit of dita is so great! its vintage-y but modern. totally n love.
