    Enemy in the wardrobe speaks for classic style, elegance and comfort. We create garments that will truly bring out the best in you in every situation. But when it comes to iconic style, something that you will be remembered by, where do you get your inspiration?

     

    We have gathered some people with a true sense of style for a daily inspiration.

     

    Audrey Hepburn

     

    The 50s silver screen actress was one of the biggest celebrities of the era. Her slim physique, historic smile and Bambi-eyes have captured the hearts of many people since. One person captured by her innocent beauty, was the French fashion designer: Hubert de Givenchy. The young fashion creative and Audrey Hepburn have shaped the brand together, creating a feminine, elegant, sleek style.

    Audrey Hepburn’s fashion style is based on basic colors (a lot of black and white), statement accessories such as big hats and oversized sunglasses, and slim cut black dresses.

    Jackie Kennedy

     

    The former first lady has become a style icon with her pillbox hats and long white gloves. But Jackie’s style included so much more than this. She dared to wear color and combine different cuts (such as culottes) for an eye-catching look. Her autumn looks included trench coats, headscarves and iconic sunglasses. To create her look, choose bold colours, don’t be afraid to colour-block and always add a feminine touch to masculine outfits.

     

    Princess Diana

     

    The princess of hearts was not only popular for her kind personality but also for her timeless sense of fashion. Despite having a pixie style haircut, Lady Di always managed to stay very feminine. She is remembered as the most rebellious royal in British history and her youthful, fun style represented just that. Unlike other members of the aristocratic family, she dared to wear short skirts, figure-hugging dresses, bare shoulder pieces and lots of colour.

     

    Kate Moss

     

    The supermodel become one of the most successful women in the industry in the 90s. Her skinny figure, not classically feminine look was a rebellion of its own. Her style knows no boundaries and creates a strong message of Kate’s personality. Something that says: I don’t care what you think. She creates style experiments of textures, patterns and colour. Her inner beauty shines trough the masculine pieces she combines for everyday outfits and she is brave enough to wear pieces that are long forgotten.

     

     

    Sarah Jessica Parker

     

    SJP is often a synonym for style, fashion and femininity. Since her iconic role as Carrie Bradshaw in the TV series Sex and the city, Sarah Jessica is an ambassador for fashion. Her look is light, fun, extremely feminine and playful, but not only displaying latest fashion, but also exclusive, unusual and retro elements. The key piece of a true SJP style, are high heels and trendy bags.  

     

    No matter, which fashion icon you most identify with, make sure you always stick to your own true personal style!

    Habits and strategies of the world's most successful female leaders

    Habits and strategies of the world's most successful female leaders

    ‘The future is female’ says a famous slogan of our days, in a world, where women fight for the rights and get more and more accepted in every aspect of life.

    Of course we are not saying that men are less important, but the tendency of women gaining power is also changing our lifestyle in major ways.

    So if you want to join the powerful female leaders or at least learn from them, here is the perfect opportunity. We have collected some of the things influential women do in order to stay respected.

    Of course there is no doubt how important outlooks are. ‘Dress the part’ is a motto every woman should have written on her wardrobe. In a professional environment always look smart, feminine and self-confident. Choose your clothing wisely, according to your physical qualities. You cannot go wrong with a black dress, a navy skirt and a white blouse.

     

    The way you start your day is a crucial point when it comes to the evaluation of quality. Start early and with a positive mindset. Don’t rush. Try to do some kind of simple exercise, or even better, meditation before you even get ready. Eat enough and eat healthy. See the morning routine as a gift to yourself, as an hour (or more) of me-time.

     

    Believe in karma, because it always works. So act kind and helping towards others. Co-workers, family members and even staff at your local grocery store. You will see magic instantly unfolding itself in front of your eyes.

    Be active. And not just physically, (which is of course equally important) but also mentally.  Be a person, who makes the first step.  Approach new people with confidence, be open to others, feel curious. Networking is something we cannot live without in our personal lives or even in our careers. Don’t be lazy, if you have an idea, act and see if it works, you cannot loose anything.

     

    Listen and speak up. It is very important that you say what is on your mind but are also open to issues of others. By doing so you will be more appreciated by others and will also know about every issue that might go on behind the scenes.

     

    Always be true to yourself and never try to be anyone else, firstly because it is impossible and secondly because comparing yourself to others creates unnecessary stress. Insecurities are normal, the question is only how you handle them. So next time you see someone, who is better looking, richer, funnier or simply more successful than you, feel grateful for them and see them as your own personal teacher.

     

    Stay flexible. Of course you can (and should) make plans for the near and far future but also give a little space for the unpredictable. If you are open to change and learn to let go easily, you will find that it reduces anxiety and can take you on completely new paths.

    The LBD – everything you need to know about this fashion Jolly Joker

    This jolly joker item is most probably the one in fashion the most articles have been written about. We can also not skip it moreover it is a must as our brands, Enemy in the Wardrobe’s foundation is the LBD.

    In this article we are focusing on one of the favourite key elements of a woman’s wardrobe: the little black dress. One thing is for sure: the LBD is a multifunctional piece that has come a long way.


    For a long time, black dresses were associated with mourning and were only worn, when needed. However, in the 1920s the iconic fashion designer, Coco Chanel reinvented the little black dress as a stylish item, any woman can wear. This was the first step towards its success. By the 1930s it became famous and was worn by dancers on stage, in any style and variation. The LBD got quickly also popular in Hollywood, as it looked good on the big screen. In fact, the concept of the dress suitable for day and evening did become both basic foundation and versatile item of every woman’s wardrobe.

    Some famous actresses of the time made this piece even more iconic. The blonde bombshell, Marilyn Monroe wore a figure-hugging dress in Asphalt Jungle. The real breakthrough, however, was in 1961, when Audrey Hepburn appeared in Breakfast at Tiffany’s in the memorable Givenchy dress.

    Since then, the LBD is a regular on the red carpet and is present in almost every woman’s wardrobe. In 2010, the term “LBD” got recognized in the Oxford dictionary and is widely used, not only in the fashion industry.


    Styling your LBD


    Of course LBDs can be various lengths, styles and shapes, which gives women the freedom to choose the ideal one for their silhouette. It can be dressed up and down also, and that is its magic.


    You can opt for a figure-enhancing, knee length style, or pick one with an A-line skirt. The perfect dress can be loose fitting or straight-cut with a boat neckline and short sleeves, or a V-neckline without sleeves.


    When choosing your dress, remember, this, too it is a key piece of your wardrobe therefore it should make you feel feminine and comfortable at the same time.

    An LBD is a perfect base for your outfit and can be combined with heels, or flats, colourful accessories and a handbag to make the look less strict or even more elegant.


    We at Enemy in the Wardrobe aim to offer every woman the style for their individual look  as we know that each of us has their ideal dress, which can be the most used item of our wardrobe.  And what would be better, than having the option of playfully adding colourful touches, accessories to it using our Moods  ribbons, belts and bracelets.



    Key elegant pieces every woman needs in their wardrobe

    Key elegant pieces every woman needs in their wardrobe

    Dressing elegantly is sometimes easier said than done. Whether you need an outfit for a long day of meeting in the office, or a look for a special event, sometimes you will find that your wardrobe has turned against you, offering a range of mixed pieces and styles, you simply cannot combine. But as with lots of other things, there is a solution, which is to have some key pieces in your wardrobe that can easily be matched to others, saving you time and stress.

    1. A crisp white shirt

    They say, you only need a few high quality clothing items, well, this is definitely one of them. A good-fitting simple white shirt is an absolute must for every woman’s wardrobe. Make sure, you find the time to look for the perfect one, do not settle for second best! Also your shirt must always be clean and neatly ironed for a polished look.

     

    1. A black skirt

    It might not be everyone’s ‘thing’, but a well-made black pencil skirt will save you precious minutes when deciding on your outfit. The skirt must be knee-length and should highlight your figure in a delicate way, without cutting into your flesh. For those of you, who are absolutely against the classic pencil cut, we recommend the A-line or skater variation.

     

    1. The LBD

    Karl Lagerfeld once said “One is never over-dressed or under-dressed with a Little Black Dress” and we could not agree more. The LBD is the Jolly Joker of your wardrobe, which can be dressed up or down for various occasions. There are no strict rules when it comes to this type of dress, any shape, style and material can be the one, just make sure, you feel comfortable in it and you can wear it as much in summer as in winter. Then you are free to accessorize it with some colorful statement pieces!

     

    1. The perfect shoes

    We recommend owning a pair of elegant, plain shoes in black, and another pair in a nude shade to create a perfectly mix and matchable shoe collection. If you feel comfortable in heels, opt for those with a reasonable height (4 inch stilettos might not be the ideal choice), otherwise pick a pair of ballerinas, or Oxford shoes in a plain shade.

     

    1. A practical bag

    Every woman needs a handbag, or at least one! When choosing a bag, make sure, it is the right size (clutches and small bags are not practical for everyday use), the right colour (it matches your coat or jacket and your shoes) and that it is made of good quality materials. Authentic leather, in this case would make your bag last much longer, than its synthetic versions.

     

    When you have these 5 pieces, you are ready for any kind of day!
