Effortless Brazilian style

Weekend street style inspo: Helena Bordon

Style blogger, entrepreneur and socialite Helena Bordon is a regular on the street style section of fashion sites, and it’s not hard to figure out why: her versatility in pulling off looks for all seasons makes her an inspirational style maven. Wearing leather in broad daylight (and we’re not talking about leather accessories) might be a tricky prospect, but here’s how you can pull it off like the Brazilian blogger:

A sleeveless leather top from Narciso Rodriguez is the way to go, if leather motorcycle jackets are a tad too uncomfortable to wear in a warmer environment.


Go edgy chic with a pair of wool-blend, tailored trousers such as Rag & Bone’s ‘Aggie’ pants—it’s always fun to mix and match materials and combine the unexpected.


Colourful accessories help play down the severity of your look, plus it’s a great way to add a dash of colour to your versatile outfit. This Isabel Marant ‘Colorado’ gold-tone brass necklace is detailed with a black-resin oval and burnt orange-resin drop.

How can one resist adding a Louis Vuitton Petite Malle to the equation? This Epi Leather version in Graphite Nacre is a beautiful statement-making piece that’s perfect for a day-to-night outfit transition.

Lastly, a pair of chic shades for every potential style star in the making—we love how Dior Abstract sunglasses in tortoiseshell and green plays with volume and masculine elements.
