There is something I must admit about this look. It was actually inspired by one of my best friend’s previous outfit. I was never a fan of XL length tops like this burgundy one, until I saw it on my friend one night. As it happened we went to a chill house reunion with a few friends, and she was wearing a pair of vintage looking black jeans and a grey t-shirt, that shapelessly fell all the way to her kneecap. I personally was not allured by it. But the night rolled in, and we moved the party to a club. My friend and I went separately. As I saw her stepping down the car, my opinion about the garment of my objection, completely changed. She had effortlessly tied both ends on a simple yet cool looking knot to the left side of her perfectly toned torso. Needless to say, she looked hot, hot, hot. So when this excessive peace of cloth came my way, I was no longer offended by it, on the contrary it made me want to create a beautiful outfit with it. I hope you guys like it!
Colour blocking is a fun way of dressing up. It is exciting to match different tones to create a cool combo. I went for sober hues on my clothes and then added a citric punch with the loafers. Bold and chic.
About a couple of weeks ago, I was asked to create an outfit with these gorgeous, lace ankle booties. I was told that because they were such a fashion statement, it would be harder for people to visualize them in their wardrobes. I immediately jumped, psyched at the thought of it. I loved the shoes the moment I spotted them, and I already had an avalanche of ideas on how to wear them.
The easiest way of wearing them is letting all of the eyes immediately fall on them, by leaving your legs bare skin. Wear them with a mini dress, skirt, or shorts for maximum showcase. You can always also wear them with skin tight jeans, or if you don’t dare to actually bring everyone’s attention to them, combine them with straight leg or flared trousers.
This checked print top somehow brings to my mind the image of a mod girl, although for achieving the look, a high waist, ankle length trouser would be the ideal matching garment, the flare jeans also seem to work. A relaxed look fit for a weekend.
With all the 70’s love in the air, falling for certain bits and pieces seems inevitable. Velvety, long dresses are ideal for a weekend, laid-back look, particularly if you are not willing to compromise in style. And what’s more 70’s than fringe? This tan satchel is the perfect fit for this outfit. I added my trusty, super comfortable golden gladiators and Voila! Yes, 70’s love is in the air!
If there is one thing that I like doing is trying out different looks with one same garment, it forces me into experiencing with my own wardrobe and practicing my styling skills. For instance, I have worn this super comfy dress in two totally different ways. Too bad I don’t have images of my other look, but just picture this: Gray, striped dress + chunky heel, ankle boots + maxi, gray cardigan. Let me say that it was actually a rather chic, effortless result. Here I leave you with my second look with that one same dress. x
Fell in love with this skirt the moment I laid eyes on it! Perfect lenght, ideal colour, insteresting print, and heavenly fit. I effortlessly paired it with a solid crop top and for a dash of metallic glow, a statement necklace and bow stilettos. Hope you like it!
When it comes to casual dressing, I have a pattern: plain t-shirts + skinny jeans. I know these t-shirts may be basic, at times, but there is a certain ease to them that makes them somewhat cool. I liked this gray top the moment I saw it, and then I turned it, and, what do you know!…, it was even better! The unexpected back detail came as a total surprise, and it just adds an interesting twist to the tee.
