Style secret 2: Have a go-to look
From the Marimekko archetype silhouettes, my favorite is the straight silhouette. It creates a sleek look I can always return to and never grow tired of! A pale blue shirt is one of those garments that works all year around and just matures and becomes more beautiful with time. A cotton shirt and jeans are my go-to look all year around. In wintertime, I add a wool coat and sweater and in summer sandals, a wicker basket, and a silk scarf.
"I can totally see myself still sporting all these Marimekko garments when I’m eighty."
