Fashion Fix: Dior's New Look 1947

Pinned Image
One of my favourite designs and looks in the eternal history of fashion and style is Christian Dior's Bar suit from the New Look collection in 1947.
To me, it is the epitome of elegance and shape-wise it is my go-to style for when in doubt of what to wear.
Either pairing a flared or pleated black or marine blue skirt with white or cream shirts or making a bit more edgy by adding a white t-shirt. The importance is in the skirt's lines and the monochrome colours.
I am on the hunt for the perfect white or cream coloured blazer or jacket to go with my black skirt from Asos, in order to fulfill my own New Look. But my heart does have a soft spot for the late 1940s fashions, again tailoring and draping catches my eye.

Et af mine yndlingslooks fra modehistorien er Christian Dior's Bar Suit fra sin New Look kollektion fra 1947.
Det er for mig højdepunktet indenfor elegance og det er også mit go-to look til hvis jeg er i tvivl om hvad jeg skal tage på. Enten at sætte en plisseret eller a-formet nederdel til hvide eller cremefarvede bluser og skjorter, eller hvis man vil være lidt mere med kant, så en hvid t-shirt. Det vigtigste er nederdelens form of så det monokrome look.
Jeg er på jagt efter den helt rigtide blazer eller jakke til min sorte nederdel fra Asos, så jeg kan udleve mit eget New Look. Men mit hjerte har altså et svagt punkt for de sene år i 1940erne, igen fanger draperinger og skrædderkunst mit øje.
