Autumn Sun

Autumn Sun

It was both a sunny & windy day down here in my city today. It took us a while to style my hair which was blown all around me, often covering my eyes and face. Well, I could say I just had one of these ‘bad hair days‘. And believe me, even though it brings a lot of fun during the photoshoot, at the same time it can be very frustrating and annoying.

To help create a casual fall outfit, I used an oversized wool coat that functions as a cover-up. Cover-ups are extremely versatile and an ideal addition to your fall wardrobe. My coat is a unique handmade piece made by my favorite personal tailor and features an oversized collar. I’m always stunned by the tailor’s ability to produce perfectly fitting pieces that meet my individual requirements. As much as I love shopping in the city center, nothing can beat the experience and joy of having something custom made.

In order to create your custom clothing the tailor is going to measure you and help by suggesting a style that would look good on you. They will also discuss with you the best way to incorporate your custom requirements and suggest ideas you never thought of. I worked closely with my tailor to determine the style of my coat and I visited their workshop several times to discuss the progress. It wasn’t a hassle because I did it during the weekend or late afternoons.

This last week I went back to have a discussion on any final adjustments, and just a few days later it was finished and I picked it up. They did the work perfectly. Although I was absolutely delighted with the quality of the coat and service, finding a good tailor that fits you isn’t an easy job.

What I really like about my new oversized wool coat is the unique style that it has. The shoulder-draping collar adds some drama, and the lining is smooth and uses colorful patterns.

The oversized wool coat works together with the monochrome plaid scarf and Calzedonia gray knitted tights, Sisley hobo bag and my Pittarello chamois leather boots. These knitted tights were love at first sight from the moment I saw them in the store’s display. On top of it I’ve added a pair of Chanel earrings, H&M sunnies and a silver ring that looks absolutely fabulous. What do you think? Waiting for your precious comments.

When Sporty Meets Chic Elegance

When Sporty Meets Chic Elegance


Let’s talk about the combination of the elegant and sporty styles. But first, a short introduction of who I am. After the few initial articles about the timeless wisdom advices by notable women, why women love shoes and a autumnal long lasting fragrance it’s time to share with you my very first look. I am excited to post these pictures and introduce myself to my readers.

For a long time I’ve been following my favorite fashion blogs, reading through them daily. I always wanted to create something myself and I’ve finally decided to start my own blog. My name is Aurora Berill and I’ve launched Elegance of Luxury, my little creative corner, with the idea to share my stylish outfit inspirations, beauty advice and guides on a variety of topics. You can find more information about me in my About section.

The sporty meets chic elegant style is one of the latest trends, sometimes tricky and challenging to combine but when you manage to pull it off it looks great! If you want to create a somewhat formal feeling then try to stick with a natural subdued color scheme, in this case I went with a monochromatic silver beige. Beige is a light and neutral color that describes pale and light brown shades, one of my favorite colors lately. When it comes to combining different garments it’s all about balance. Here I am combining pieces of similar colors and I don’t play much with high contrasts.

The Sisley basic half button tee and Calliope linen shorts are all beige and fit perfectly with my Chanel silver stud logo earrings. I add in some contrast with the H&M sunnies and black studded leather bag, but not too much. Adding to the sporty look I wear Kappa low top sneakers, which fit perfectly with my initial idea to create a perfect modern minimalist outfit for contemporary women. To complete the look I went with a straw hat with removable brown leather strap and added a splash of color with the turquoise necklace.

During the summer, try to pay attention to the materials used in your clothes. It’s better to stick with light natural fibers like cotton and linen. Synthetics won’t breath well during the hot days and that can lead to rashes. Have you ever tried combining stylish with sporty looks?
