Gib mir die Hand (Give me your hand)
Ich bau’ dir ein Schloss aus Sand (I’ll build you a castle of sand)
Irgendwie, irgendwo, irgendwann (Somehow, somewhere, someday)
I hum this passage of text all of a sudden when I think of Nena. No wonder, because she just celebrated her 40th stage anniversary. During this time she has sold no less than 25 million records and developed into one of the most successful artists in the history of music in Germany. Her daughter Larissa is in no way inferior to Nena when it comes to creativity. She is a singer and artist, creates Pop Art portraits in her Hamburg studio and was last seen with her mother on the jury for “The Voice Kids”.
This concentrated female power has recently been incorporated into her own fashion collection, which is now available from Tom Tailor. The first capsule collection is inspired by the 70s and combines many newly interpreted retro looks. Both agree: “We love the check patterns and the nostalgic vibe that resonates in the collection”. In an autumnal colour range, check meets cool prints and knits. The collection focuses on cool check trousers in a wide variety of silhouettes and lengths.
We have therefore considered taking a closer look at them. Because Karo is totally hip again this autumn and we think you can wear the trend to any occasion. That’s why we would like to give you some advice on trousers and styling.
Let’s see what the Nena x Larissa collection can do and which look of our Stylechallenge you particularly like:
CIGAERETTE SLIM TROUSERS
Cigarette pants are narrow, straight pants that became popular in the 50s. The great feature of the cigarette pants is the lower hem area. Ideally, the hem should be at the top of your ankle – no longer, no shorter. The fit is characterized by a special cut that is slightly tighter at the thigh and straight from the knee to the hem. Side pockets and welt pockets on the buttocks complete the icon of the trousers. The Cigarette trousers spray special retro vibes in different check variants. In order to extend the leg optically, strappy almonds and pumps offer themselves. This also makes the look suitable for wearing. Because if one decides spontaneously with the girls with the Vino evening still the dance leg to swing, the Hoodie is simply exchanged against a figure-accentuated upper part – or one provides and carries it directly under the sweater.

SLIM ANKLE TROUSERS
As the name Slim suggests, these are figure-hugging trousers that end at ankle level. Due to the stretch component in the fabric mixture, this trouser shape fits snugly and emphasises the legs. Two side pockets and a welt pocket with a button on the buttocks are further highlights of the trouser model in addition to the eye-catching Glencheck check. The hem is also ankle-length and is therefore the ideal trousers for autumn. Large knitted sweaters and oversized tops are suitable for contrasting proportions. The autumnal red tones are not only a beautiful choice for this season, but also awaken the vibe of the 70s at the same time. In this feel-good outfit you are prepared for every everyday situation and look super stylish. Whether shopping, sightseeing or a walk – thanks to the cuddly knitted sweater, the feel-good factor is never neglected.

CHECKERED JUMPSUIT WITH SHIRT COLLAR
When I am invited to a birthday or a similar event, the dress code almost always overwhelms me. This is because I find it hard to judge how chic or cosy the other guests are when they arrive at the meeting point. With a jumpsuit you are always dressed right in my opinion, because it looks cool and special, but also has a high wearing comfort. Cuffs and a button placket serve as a decorative technique for the one-piece suit and make the work-wear style perfect. Ankle boots with a small heel are always a suitable shoe choice as they stretch the legs additionally.
