STYLE14 March 2023
It’s a time-honoured tradition to celebrate life’s biggest moments in shiny new outfits. This spring, make your look last longer than just one magical day with our stylist’s best tips for sustainable styling!
Invest in quality

"It sounds cliché, but there really is a lot of truth to it: if you invest in quality basics, premium materials and timeless designs, you're doing yourself a favour in the long run. By investing in a high-quality piece, you’re not just getting a new look for your best friend’s wedding, you’re also gaining a smart wardrobe essential you’ll enjoy for many years to come – even across seasons.”

Timeless elegance

"Just imagine what that silk watercolour dress could look like on an Italian summer night, or paired with a luscious faux fur coat for next year’s Christmas dinner…"

More style for less

“At Maasmechelen Village, you can shop international top brands at prices of up to 60% below the recommended retail price.”

Shop smarter

"For a Village stylist, this may seem like kicking at an open door, but shopping in the Village is a very smart way to put together a sustainable ceremonial look for the entire family. At Maasmechelen Village, you can shop amazing high-quality pieces from international men’s, women’s and kidswear brands that don't get caught up in fast fashion, at prices of at least 30% - and often up to 60% - below the recommended retail price. It's the perfect way to complement your wardrobe with timeless investment pieces – and the occasional guilty-pleasure statement piece – for less."

Dress it up!

"Add some pizzazz to last spring’s favourite slip dress or minimalist off-white suit and give your look a dazzling upgrade in no time. Statement earrings, fierce designer sunglasses, a shiny brooch, a colourful silk shawl, an eye-catching miniature bag...the possibilities are endless! The right accessories will work wonders to match your look to the occasion and your mood du jour."

Glow up

"Next to accessories, remember that hair and make-up have the power to completely transform your look. Switch those beach waves and sun-kissed cheeks from your co-worker’s Easter brunch to a stylish updo and neon eyeliner for your cousin’s communion, et voilà: a different glam look takes your outfit to a whole new level, and conveniently diverts attention from the fact that you wore the exact same dress to both events…”
