So, last week I visited Dusseldorf
for an impromptu long weekend to look at all things Deutsche. I strolled along the Rhine in the sunshine absorbing the fascinating fashions and culture. There was a buzz in the old town where I sat and ate bratwurst in the pouring rain under an umbrella whilst watching four tandem tied Dachsund dogs hop out of a Volkswagen.
There was a smattering of skater kids
and students with paint on their ripped army shirts, wearing intellectual expressions, undercuts and piercings. So what would be my German inspired fashion recommendations following my 4-day city break. Invest in masculine flat army boots, plait your dishevelled hair (if you can) wear dog tags, a mid length trench coat and ruby red lips for military chic♥
