Das geht immer: Basics für jeden Anlass

Blazer sind nicht nur für Business-Leute schick: Werden die Ärmel hochgekrempelt und zu Jeans oder Chino kombiniert, wirkt das lässig.

Um eine Jeans und eine Strickjacke kommt man nicht herum: Beide sind miteinander, aber auch wunderbar mit vielem anderen kombinierbar.

Eine schwarze Stoffhose kommt bei schicken Anlässen immer gut an - kombiniert zum Blazer stimmt das erst recht.

Manche Kleidungsstücke kommen nie aus der Mode. Man kann sie ewig im Kleiderschrank haben und das sollte man auch. Denn wer an Tag x plötzlich zu einem besonderen Event eingeladen wird, hat etwas Passendes zum Anziehen griffbereit.

Frau kann sie rund um das Jahr tragen, egal welche Farben und Schnitte die Modewelt gerade wieder einmal zum neuesten Schrei ausgerufen hat: sogenannte Klassiker, im Fachjargon auch Basics genannt. Diese Kleidungsstücke lassen sich mit allem kombinieren und kleiden zu jedem Anlass passend. Kurzum: Kommt der Tag, an dem man überraschend zu einem Fest oder einem Vorstellungsgespräch muss, diese Teile in der Grundausstattung des Kleiderschranks retten uns.
Als Coco Chanel 1926 das Kleine Schwarze entwarf, war es ein Skandal - heute sei es ein Muss im Kleiderschrank jeder Frau, sagt der Modeberater Andreas Rose aus Frankfurt. «Egal ob im Büro, beim Shoppen oder auf der Firmenfeier, mit ihm ist Frau immer gut angezogen.» Er empfiehlt aber, eine schlichte Variante zu kaufen, denn mit unterschiedlichen Accessoires und Make-up könne es variiert werden. Auch Sonja Grau, Personal Shopperin aus Ulm, rät von Pailletten oder Rüschen am Kleid ab. Achten sollte man hier auf die Wahl des Ausschnittes: «Ein runder Ausschnitt kann den Oberkörper schnell breit erscheinen lassen, ein V-Ausschnitt hingegen streckt die Statur der Trägerin.»
Ein weiteres Muss im Kleiderschrank ist nach Ansicht von Modeexperten ein dünner, gerade geschnittener Bleistiftrock. «Am besten knielang in schwarz oder dunkelblau - das steht jeder Frau und passt immer», sagt Kathrin Bierling, Modejournalistin und Bloggerin aus München. Rose hingegen rät zu farbigen Modellen und empfiehlt insbesondere Rot oder andere Beerenfarben. «Dazu trägt man am besten eine weisse Bluse oder ein Twinset.» Wenn es um die Bluse als Klassiker geht, sind sich alle Experten einig: Weiss muss sie sein. Wer in weiss zu blass wirkt, sollte auf Creme ausweichen, empfiehlt Bierling.
Bei der Beinbekleidung benötigt jede Frau laut Grau mindestens zwei Exemplare im Schrank: eine schwarze Stoffhose und eine Jeans. Sie rät bei der Jeans zu einer leichten, gleichmässigen Waschung und einem geraden Schnitt, dem sogenannten Straight Cut. Wichtig sei auch, dass die Proportionen der Gesässtaschen stimmig sind. «Po-Taschen sollten in der Spitze immer dort enden, wo der Po in den Oberschenkel übergeht.»
Unauffällig, aber unverzichtbar sind T-Shirts, Longsleeves und Pullover. Bierling empfiehlt besonders einen hellen, dünnen Kaschmirpullover. «Dieser Pullover ist ein Allrounder, den man Sommer wie Winter tragen kann.» Zur kalten Jahreszeit lässt sich unter den Pullover ein langärmliges T-Shirt ziehen, im Fachjargon Longsleeve genannt. Longsleeves und T-Shirts in den klassischen Farben sowie mit O- oder V-Ausschnitt lassen sich auch gut zu Rock oder Hose kombinieren, sagt Rose.
«Blazer sind nicht nur für Business-Leute schick», sagt Rose. Entsprechend kombiniert könne der Blazer auch sehr lässig wirken. Der Modeberater schlägt vor, die Ärmel hochzukrempeln oder mit einer Chino zu kombinieren. «Wer sich eine Taille zaubern will, kann auch eine Variante mit Schulterpolstern wählen.» Roses Lieblingsvariante für jüngere Frauen sind die extra langen Blazer im Boyfriend-Stil. Grau mahnt hier aber zur Vorsicht: Kleine Frauen sollten kurze Blazer wählen, nur grössere Frauen könnten längere Varianten tragen.
Ein wichtiges Teil ist auch der Cardigan, die kragenlose Strickweste. «Der Cardigan sollte entweder schmal oder überweit geschnitten sein. Alles dazwischen ist unvorteilhaft», erläutert Bierling. Für Grau ist beim Cardigan vor allem wichtig, dass er uni ist, kleinere Details wie andersfarbige Einfassungen, goldene Knöpfe oder Embleme seien aber kein Tabu.

Giulia Steingruber (SUI)
Giulia Steingruber of Switzerland stole the show in the Women’s Vault final with a flawless display that fetched her a whopping 14.662 points for gold in the 5th FIG Artistic Gymnastic Challenge Cup


Giulia Steingruber of Switzerland stole the show in the Women’s Vault final with a flawless display that fetched her a whopping 14.662 points for gold in the 5th FIG Artistic Gymnastic Challenge Cup at the Aspire Dome yesterday. 
Finishing second was Nadine Jarosch of Germany with an effort of 13.837, while, Teja Belak of Slovakia bagged bronze with a total of 13.812 
“I’m extremely pleased with my showing. I had a good preparation before coming here and the competition is also tough with most of the top gymnasts here. I would like to build on this performance,” said an elated Steingruber after the medals ceremony. 
Silver medallist Jarosch was also banking on this success to make it to the German team for the Olympics. “This result is a huge confidence booster for me. The competition back home is tough and we will be having the Nationals soon and the team for the Olympics will be decided only after that. I’m hoping that I can keep up the good work till then,” said a beaming Jarosch. 
In the Men’s Pommel Horse event, the gold medal was bagged by Slovanian Saso Bertoncelj with 15.225 points. Bertoncelj, made a tactical decision of concentrating on a clean finish rather than trying something extravagant as he was the last to perform. 
“I decided to keep it simple; opted for an easy exercise as the finalists before me failed to finish well. There were lots of mistakes done by the others. The move worked well for me and that’s why I’m very happy,” said a jubilant Bertoncelj. 
The second place was bagged by China’s Qiuhua Liao with 14.825 while the third went to Frenchman Cyril Tommasone with 14.625. In the men’s floor, China’s Kai Zou got the better of Croatia’s Tomislav Markovic with a stunning acrobatic display which fetched him a total of 15.500. Markovic, for his attempt, managed 15.025 points and silver. Bronze went to Romania’s Vlad Bogdan Cotuna with 14.825 points. 
As expected, British ace, Elizabeth Tweddle lived up to her reputation  and won the women’s uneven bar event comprehensively with a total of 15.175.China’s Yuyuan Jiang had to be content with the second spot with a total of 14.875 while the bronze went to Germany’s Katharina Lisa Hill who accumulated 14.575 points.

Guerlain sorgt für schönen Teint

Puder "Terracotta Light" von Guerlain
Bis zu den Ferien werden wir uns noch eine Weile gedulden müssen. Dennoch macht uns die frühlingshafte Stimmung Lust auf Sonne. Mitten im urbanen Dschungel spriessen neue Stiele, erste Bäume blühen und das Schuhwerk wird leichter ... Leider bekommt man auch zu sehen, was der Winter angerichtet hat: Blasse Haut, wohin man auch blickt!

Glücklicherweise gibt es Guerlain! Dank seinem Puder "Terracotta Light" muss man nämlich keine Angst mehr vor sommerlichen Temperaturen haben. Dieses Produkt wurde eigens für den Anfang der warmen Jahreszeit entwickelt und lässt blasse Gesichter in warmen, goldenen Farbnuancen erstrahlen.

Dazu gibt es neue Farbtöne. Ob blond oder brünett - jede trifft hier den richtigen Ton. So kann der Sommer kommen!

"Terracotta Light" - Guerlain, CHF 71.- je Puderdose.

Jetzt an Fusspflege denken!


 Bild zum Artikel

Winter bedeutet ist für unsere Füsse Stress pur. Wir hüllen sie in warme Wollsocken und verstecken sie in Schuhen und Stiefeln. Im Frühjahr haben wir dann die Rechnung: trockene, ungepflegte Füsse. Doch dem kann man mit einem Peeling und einer speziellen Feuchtigkeitscreme Abhilfe schaffen. Danach folgt die Pediküre: Bringen Sie dazu ihre Fussnägel in eine leicht viereckige Form, feilen Sie sie glatt und tragen Sie dann einen farblosen Unterlack und darauf eine Schicht Nagellack in ihrer Lieblingsfarbe auf. Ihre Füsse werden es Ihnen danken...

Mut zur Farbe: Jessie J (23) experimentiert gerne mit Kosmetik - ihre Make-up-Stylistin verriet nun, mit welchen Tricks man den Star-Appeal selbst hinbekommt.
Die Hit-Lieferantin ('Domino') ist berühmt für ihren mutigen, ausgeflippten Look - das gilt sowohl für ihre ausgefallenen Klamotten als auch ihr dramatisches Make-up, mit dem sie auf dem roten Teppich regelmässig überzeugt. Star-Visagistin Jackie Tyson, die auch schon Stars wie Sängerin Avril Lavigne und die Band 'Coldplay' schminkte, verriet nun ihre Tipps für den charakteristischen Look der Musikerin
Zunächst einmal sei es wichtig, eine gute Grundierung aufzutragen, erklärte die Beauty-Expertin: "Jessies Look ist total auffällig. Um dieses Make-up hinzukriegen, beginne damit, das Gesicht gründlich zu reinigen, um eine gute Grundlage zu bekommen. Probiere 'Decleor Aroma Cleanse' aus: Das reinigt deine Haut und lässt sie frisch erstrahlen - eine perfekte Basis für Make-up", erklärte die Kosmetik-Fachfrau im Interview mit 'Cover Media'. "Ein blasser Grundton bringt ein dramatisches Make-up noch besser zur Geltung. Die Investition in eine gute Foundation lohnt sich deshalb! Mein Favorit ist 'Shiseido Perfect Refining Foundation'. Trage die Foundation grosszügig mit einem Schwamm auf und füge anschliessend noch etwas Puder hinzu. Ein wenig 'Avon's Earthern Rose'-Rouge verleiht dem Gesicht Tiefe".
Für das glamouröse Augen-Make-up der Erfolgssängerin empfiehlt die Expertin folgendes: "Benutze Gel-Eyeliner und trage diesen mit einer Eyeliner-Bürste auf dem oberen Wimpernkranz auf - probiere dafür 'Blacktrack by MAC', damit gelingt der Lidstrich sogar einer ungeübten Hand. Trage danach grauen Lidschatten, wie zum Beispiel die Farbrichtung 'smoulder' von 'Mii' auf, um damit unter den unteren Wimpern eine feine Linie zu ziehen. Um das dramatische Augen-Make-up abzurunden, klebe dir ein Paar krasse, falsche Wimpern an - wie 'Blink and Go's fab lash in Temptress No 1'."
Das Jury-Mitglied bei der britischen Talent-Show 'The Voice' weiss auch mit ihren Lippen für Aufsehen zu sorgen, die Jessie gerne in einer Knallfarbe wie Pink oder einem Rot schminkt. Die Visagistin betonte, dass man auf geschmackvolle Farben achten solle, wenn man den glamourösen Look beibehalten wolle. "Auf die Lippen sollte ein starkes Rot kommen, aber bitte matt, nicht glänzend. 'Rubywoo by MAC' ist dafür gut geeignet. Trage diesen Lippenstift mit einer Bürste auf, um ultra-spitze Linien zu kreieren", gab Jessie J's Stylistin weiter zu Protokoll.
