Floral pants: a happy happy joy joy mood

Floral pants are definitely one of those items that you’re going to see me in all summer long.

Usually when summer starts, I love wearing dresses, skirts, short, everything but long pants or jeans. Well, that it’s not the case when we are talking about this particular pair of pants.

First, I wanna talk a little about the fabric, so you can understand why they are the perfect pair of pants to wear in the summer. They are super soft and extremely lightweight. Literally they feel like you are not wearing anything which makes them really comfortable too.

What I love the most about this pair of floral palazzo pants , is the cut. The loose cut gives a graceful flare to your figure as you walk, which I find that to be a little sophisticated and ultra feminine.

I’m not a petite girl at all, but this type of pants will accentuate the length of your legs… and to be honest, which girl doesn’t like that?

In my lasts shopping sprees, I ended up buying only items with print or really colorful for the summer of 2018.

Floral print is the one that defines me the most. It always give me a happy happy joy joy mood, but in the same time is very feminine and sweet.

I was in love with the pastel color of the pants the flowers, so in order to keep that the focal point of my outfit, I paired the floral pants with a simple flowy white top.

The pants have a matching crop top, which you’ll probably see in a different post.

Don’t forget: when we talk about warm weather fashion, one thing it is for sure: floral prints will always be in style!

Linen dress for summer

If I had to think about the anatomy of the perfect summer outfit, the first thing that pops into my mind it is a linen dress.

linen dress

 

For me, the best fabric that you can wear during the hot summer months is linen, followed by silk and cotton.

Along with the cotton, linen is manufactured from a plant (flax plant) which makes it a 100% natural fibre.

It is for sure, the best fabric in terms of breathability. So, when Summer it’s fully on charge with the triple digits, I would highly recommend you wearing linen pieces. They are extremely lightweight and also highly absorbent.

We have so many options to choose from: pants, skirts, dresses, button down shirts, all ready for you to make a little room for them in your closet.You can find some budget friendly items at the mass market stores like Zara, H&M, or on the pricey side from Reformation or Free People.

The best part of having some linen pieces is that they don’t go out of fashion. Linen is timeless: our grandmothers used to wear it, our moms, and now here we are… wearing the same fabric.

The only downside to it is for sure the wrinkles. Linen creases in the first 5 minutes you put it on. That might be something that will make you say no to linen, and I can totally understand that. BUT, to be completely honest with you, it doesn’t bother me at all. Not only that, I can actually see a type of beauty in those wrinkles. As my statement says: I think there is beauty in everything!

For today’s post, I chose to style this gorgeous Versace linen dress in a different way.

Being a strapless – corset kind of dress it is definitely on the elegant side. That’s the reason why I chose to dress it down by adding the white Tee underneath and a pair of sneakers.

What are your thoughts on wearing linen?

XoXo, OD!

Turban Fashion

A turban, it’s a fashion accessory and can be worn with style and class when you want to be out of the ordinary.

turban

We can incorporate a turban in pretty much any outfit, from swimwear to a daily look, or even in an evening outfit.

Accessorizing your outfit with a turban it is for sure one of the micro trends of this summer season, as we’ve seen it already on the runways (Gucci, Marc Jacobs, etc).

I’ve decided to try it myself in an outfit that screams: SUMMER.

Because this dress doesn’t say too much by itself, I think it definitely needs something extra.

I talked before about how we can drastically change the look of an outfit with the accessories. With that being said, in this case I let the turban to steal the whole show.

If you don’t know what to think about this trend yet, or if it’s something for your or not, you don’t need to invest in a turban. Instead, you can make one using the scarves that you already own. (All you need to do it is a little research about how to tie them).

I hope that you decide to give it a try, go ahead and play with fun prints, textures and give your outfits a fresh summer look.

How to rock the socks trend this spring

I’ve written a post before about the socks trend (here), but I love it so much that I’m getting into it again.

socks trend

Wearing socks and sandals or high heels it is the trendiest accessory combo that you have to try it this spring.

And when I say socks, I’m talking about all of them: sport, embellished, mesh, or even crazy neon colors… everything that stands out.

I’m not saying that is the easiest look to put together, but it is definitely something worth trying.

You can do this little accessory combo when you want to make a simple outfit stand out more.

I’m a big fan of wearing sports/tennis socks with ultra feminine strappy sandals for that nice touch of contrast.

In today’s post, I wanted a pair of more thinner, way dressier pair of socks. I wanted a pair of embellished socks for a really long time, but I didn’t have any luck finding the right pair. So, what do you do when you can’t find something that you truly like? You do it yourself.

Even though, I’m not a crafty person by all means, and I wasn’t endowed with too much patience, I decided that I should give it a try.

After a few long hours and some “hard work” I finished up these beauties. I think I will give another try to socks design because I really enjoyed doing it.

I wore the with different pairs of shoes and they looked stunning each and every time. I also got a lot of compliments wearing them and everyone was asking me where did I get them.

This socks and shoe combo helped me take out the ordinary zone this cute leather dress. Being such a simple dress, it needed something to make it pop.

Are you going to try this trend this spring?

I wish you an amazing week!

XoXo, OD

Lingerie as outerwear – trend alert

Wearing your lingerie as outerwear can sound pretty crazy, right? Well, think about it again… We’ve seen this trend around for some years on & off, but lately it has continued to pick up speed.

lingerie trend

For the first time, I tried this trend a couple of years ago when I thought that wearing a lace bralette over a white tee it would be something a little bit out of the ordinary. Oh well… it was. Back then this whole lingerie trend it wasn’t such a big thing, so I got some “weird” looks :))

For today’s post I used a lace bralette as my crop top in my outfit.

I really believe that, wearing a nice piece of lingerie mixed in with some prêt-à-porter items, can look very seductive without being too much.

Even though, exposing your bra might not be too comfortable for many women, I would suggest you to try it… at least once. You can start by adding a semi-sheer blouse over your  favorite bra. It will make you feel more covered and the effect created it will not be as full-frontal.

Like in most of my outfits, I love to mix textures. For this particular look, I couldn’t think of something more appropriate to combine my lace bralette than this silk kimono. The high waisted jeans are cutting a little bit that bedroom/lounge vibe of the outfit and is bringing it into the street style zone.

With the right pieces mixed together, I have to say that I’m really digging this trend. Are you going to try it this summer? I would love to hear what do you think.

Have a gorgeous week,

XoXo, OD!

How to wear the pleated midi skirt with sneakers

It’s hard to believe that you don’t have already a pleated midi skirt. This type of skirt is a staple closet and we’ve seen it around for a while now.

pleated midi skirt

A pleated midi skirt is super easy to wear. You can take it in 2 opposite styling areas: elegant or casual. All depends on what you feel like wearing or where are you going.

When you decide what approach you take for this skirt, the shoes are the ones that are setting the tone of your outfit.

If you want to go for an elegant look, you need just to add a pair of cute high heels and a top.

I usually like to do a more casual styling with this kind of skirt, so I’m going to opt for a pair of fashion sneakers.

Even though is spring, we were getting colder temperatures in LA the last couple of days.So, I find this sweater more than perfect to wear it with my spring-ish skirt.

The volumes, created by this chunky sweater and the skirt it is something that I really enjoy. Call me crazy but I love the loose fitting clothes.

For this outfit, I chose to propose the bag in 2 different ways: as a crossbody bag and as a bag belt. To be honest, I wore it as a belt bag, because it’s the perfect trick to accentuate your waist line.

The fact that I decided to add sneakers to this look it’s no surprise for anyone. I love to mix and match items in order to create unique looks. And this fashion sneakers were the va va voom that my outfit was missing.

Happy hump day, my lovelies!

Floral print shirt: spring mood

In my opinion, the floral print shirt is a must-have in everyone’s dressing for the 2018 spring season.

floral print shirt

Shirts, are for me one of my favorite clothing items, because you can find them in a lot of different styles: from elegant to casual, we can incorporate them in pretty much any outfit.

A super versatile piece, it can be worn by itself in the warmer months, or underneath a blazer, coat, when the weather requires some layering.

It is something about the floral print shirt that outlines your femininity and also gives your outfit a romantic vibe.

For today’s outfit, I paired my satin floral print shirt with a pair of high waisted jeans and a white vest.

I finished up the look with this gorgeous pair of oxfords, that can definitely elevate any look that you need.

Lately, I ended up buying all floral, bold prints pieces that I can’t wait to share them with you.

I think I’m already in all full spring mode ready for summer, baby!

I hope you have an awesome week, my lovelies.

XoXo, OD.

Denim skirt – pencil style

Denim it will never go out of fashion and in this category falls the denim skirt too.

denim skirt

I remember denim skirts being around since I was little and they are a high fashion trend in 2018.

One thing that’s really cool about the denim skirts, is the fact that they are adaptable and practical in the same time. You can dress them up or down and   you can definitely wear them with everything. Any shoes, any accessories… they are the most versatile clothing piece I know (along with the beloved jeans, of course).

The denim skirt is the skirt that you can wear it day to night. By simply changing just the shoes that you wear, you can change the entire look.

I bought recently a few denim skirt, different washes, different styles and the pencil one is my favorite.

I used it in today’s outfit of the day to build a super chic but easy spring outfit. The weather was in the 60’s, so the knitted hoodie kept me warm enough so I didn’t need a jacket.

There is no need to say how much I love wearing socks with my high heels (I wrote a full post on that here). I’m doing it for years but I’ve seen that the combination is strongly back in the fashion game in 2018.

Let me know how do you like to wear your denim skirt in the comment box below. Have an awesome week my lovelies!

Scarf: the most fashionable accessory for 2018

The scarf it is for sure THE accessory for 2018. Spring/Summer or Fall/Winter, depending on the fabric they are present in a lot of stylings.

scarf

It is the most versatile accessory, because you can wear it anywhere: your head, your neck, even on your wrist as a cool bracelet or it can be tied around the handles of your bag.

This little accessory, it can definitely make a bold statement, as the perfect addition when your outfit needs just a little extra touch.

For today’s post, I chose to style the scarf underneath a hat. This styling changed the entire look, because without it, would  have been just a black button down shirt and a pair of leather pants.

What I like the most about this styling is the mysterious vibe created by the mixture of two different styles. The colorful scarves are extremely feminine and the hat just adds a masculine feel to the entire look.

I don’t mind playing with color at all, so when spring it is actually here I can’t wait to play with different colors and patterns scarves and mix them into my outfits.

How to wear the famous palazzo pants

In today’s post, I wanna talk about a super trendy pair of bottoms: the palazzo pants.

palazzo pants

Palazzo pants can be pretty tricky to style, but they can help you achieve any type of look: from uptown chic to downtown sexy.

They certainly have that versatility and with the right styling, you can take them from the office to a fancy rooftop party.

I have to say that I own a couple of pairs, but when I saw these ones at H&M, I had to buy another pair. Well, actually not one, but two. I tried on the black ones and I liked so much the fitting that I went for a hunt in the city to find the beige pair in my size. It was the first time when I liked an item so much that I bought an item in 2 different colors.

If you are looking to buy a pair of palazzo pants, I would suggest to go for a pair of high waisted ones, so you will create a more balanced look.

I’m sure that this is not going to be the last post about this pants, but I’ll style them different each and every time so you will have more styling ideas of the same item.

For the first styling idea, I wanted something casual for a super busy Sunday.

Choosing a pair of sneakers for the palazzo pants gave me that laid back vibe that I was looking for.

The ruffled details on the waist just makes these pants to stand up more. I added an oversized T-shirt, that instead of tucking it in, I made a little front knot. I found that gave a nice touch to the entire look.

Being a pretty much black and white outfit, I wanted a pop of color which this time it was my bag, that I completely love.

I wish you all a great week my lovelies,

Until next time, XoXo.
