I just want to make it clear, none of the pieces of this outfit is by Dries Von Noten. I just used his aesthetic for an inspiration. I’m a big fan of his, he uses a lot of ethnic textiles from all over the world, one of the beautiful ones is batik from Indonesia. Well, I was born in Indonesia, but that’s not the only reason why I’m a big fan of Dries, I also love how he’s able to create chic modern styles using the traditional fabrics like batik.
I got my batik skirt in Indonesia when I was on a vacation in Bali, but this batik is actually Javanese batik. I paired it with a white eyelet lace tank top. I created two looks using this skirt and the tank top. For meeting clients earlier that day, I threw on my favorite Radenroro ‘Yudia‘ crop jacket (in caramel) and stepped on my china print silk satin pumps. This is a great look for work, whatever your occupation is, it’s layered without being too hot on skin because the jacket is made of silk and the skirt is made of cotton. I accessorized with layered chunky metal chains and a stack of tortoise bracelets. Later that day, I was meeting a friend for cocktails, I just left my jacket at my office and changed my pumps to my wooden-heeled sandals for a more casual look. I think this two looks are fresh and pleasantly chic.
