Medical technical assistant Tanja Jager (49) lives in Saarland in Germany, and documents her outfits on her Instagram account. She’s a Trendy Classic whose outfits always incorporate a polished, adorned and dressy element. Our blogger loves animal print, bags, and shoes. She also has an amazing jewellery collection, and uses her one-of-a-kind necklaces and bracelets to add that WOW factor to every outfit.
“I no longer follow every trend, but have found a style that suits me, and in which I feel comfortable. I like classic style and combining two or three colours best. That is why I also invest in high-quality classics because they accompany me the longest. My favourite basics are a pair of well-fitting jeans, a white blouse, a blazer, chic shoes and a high-quality bag.
A statement blouse like this crisp white number with fab design details is a great way to dress up an outfit in mild weather because you don’t need a topper to add more visual interest. The flattering V-neck and big lapels draw the eye up and down, while the puff sleeves add a romantic touch. Pairing the oversized blouse with straight-legged cropped leather trousers tempers the volume of the top, as does the tailored fit on the shoulders. The V-neck also forms the perfect backdrop for Tanja’s eye-catching Y-shaped chain link necklace. Her folded bag matches the rich caramel of the trousers, while her leopard print pointy-pumps add touches of lighter browns that work beautifully with the caramel. Several bracelets in gold and black tie in with the statement necklace, as do the gold accents on Tanja’s glam oversized sunnies.
I love this Casual Glam in Mustard look with its “vacationing at the Riviera vibe.” It’s also a fab example of Angie’s Mustard Magic outfit formula. Tanya is wearing a white button-down partially unbuttoned to showcase the waistband of her straight-legged linen trousers. Cognac strappy gladiator-esque sandals emphasize the breezy holiday vibe, while the dressy satchel in a deeper shade of cognac adds dressy polish. The matching mustard sweater casually thrown over her shoulders adds a touch of nonchalance, while the crisp white of the top adds modern integrity to vintage ‘70s mustard and the earthy cognac. Our blogger mixes her metals with a silver pearl pendant, pearl drop earrings, and gold amulet necklace. Big sunnies and glam fedora with animal print band complete the look.
Our blogger wears this shade of tomato red regularly, and it suits her so well. The tiered segments and puffy sleeve cuffs on her just-above-the-knee A-line dress create fun visual interest, while the mandarin collar and tailored fit on the shoulders add structure. Pairing this fiery red with leopard print is a match made in heaven, and brings sassy pattern to the look. The handle on the big envelope clutch matches Tanja’s dress, her nail polish and the gemstones on her bracelet. Go Team Matchy-Matchy! The stud detailing on her espadrilles adds soft edge. Finally, Tanja’s trademark statement necklaces and arm candy dress up this polished casual Summer outfit.
A relaxed fit blouse paired with structured trousers is trademark Tanja. Here’s she’s semi-tucked a mustardy yellow blouse into cropped, tapered khaki pants. The rich colour and beautiful sheen on the top give the outift a luxe vibe. The cuffed trousers showcase our blogger’s espadrilles that come out to play again. The leopard print is a great colour match with the earth-toned trousers. The cognac belt emphasizes Tanja’s waistline and matches her bag, which creates outfit cohesion. Once again, the V-neckline on her blouse is a superb backdrop for one of Tanja’s statement necklaces. Wearing her hair up also draws the eye to her amazing jewellery. A pile of gold bracelets and brown sunnies work brilliantly with the outfit’s colour palette.
And Tanja is back in glorious tomato red! Here, the eye-catching colour turns a casual jeans outfit into a real statement. Our blogger is wearing a voluminous turtleneck sweater over a light blue button-down and ankle-length straight leg jeans. The deep blue denim contrasts marvelously with the bright red. Leave it to Tanja to find a bracelet and beanie in the exact same shade. The beanie adds casual warmth to the look, and I love how Tanja’s hair charmingly peeks out from under the hat. White low-top sneakers with dressy rose gold accents add crispness, as does our blogger’s small crossbody bag. Dainty rings and orange-pink lippy finish off the look.
I’m excited to hear what you think of Tanja’s marvelous outfits. Let us know in the comments, and then hop on over to her Instagram account to browse the rest of her looks.
