HOW TO WEAR PUSSY BOW
Give your outfit a twist by wearing under a loose knit.
When it comes to her designs, Malene Birger doesn’t like to compromise. Every single piece is designed to transcend seasons and is able to stand on its own. The collections appeal to the modern, busy woman, who travels, lives in the moment and loves fashion, but is not a slave to it. Classic pieces such as the black blazer, black classic pants, white shirt, light wool knitted cardigan and a black dress are always present at the designer’s wardrobe and it seems like her personal style is constantly reflected in her collections. Malene Birger thinks that people who understand how to mix clothing from current and past seasons are the most stylish because they know how to achieve and express their own personal style.
The perfect shape to flatter any figure.
