Glen plaid skirt

Hello my lovelies,

It’s not just sweater and knits season, fall is also great to wear some plaid pattern pieces.

The glen plaid is a combination of small and large checks and usually we can find it in muted neutrals (gray, brown, beige and black). The beauty of this color scheme is that it gives you unlimited possibilities for mixing it with other colors.

This print makes me think of fall for sure, but trust me, I couldn’t put on anything more than a skirt and a T-shirt, because October in LA means over 100 degrees F (38C). It has been pretty challenging to come up with great fall outfit ideas, when all I want to wear are super light beach dresses.

Some of you guys, that are actually enjoying the nice October weather, you can also wear this outfit just by throwing a coat or blazer over your shoulder.

Being a pencil skirt with a plaid pattern it will make you think first of an office outfit, so I definitely wanted to take it out of that zone and style it a little different.

I went more for a casual-elegant look, dressed down the skirt by adding the T-shirt, but still kept a little of it’s elegancy with the high heels.

How to wear your oversized coat with style

Hello my lovelies,

Cozy outfits are a continuous favorite of mine during this time of the year, but on the other hand I don’t want to look like a walking onion with 1 million layers on me. And my dear, nothing makes you look more warmer or more stylish than an oversized coat.

You can definitely set out an outfit with an oversized coat, if you keep in mind your height when you choose the length of it, because all comes down to balancing out proportions. Taste and style it is our personal choice, so it might depends on your particular preferences.

Looking in my closet, I realized that for some reason I have more grey-ish shades for fall than brown or neutral. I feel that they give you more of a polished, sleek look than the warm shades.

Since I kept my outfit pretty much neutral, I decided to add a simple, but effective splash of color: a red beanie. It is that 5% of red that works in every outfit.

Powerful floral print suit

Hello my lovelies,

If we think about suits, usually the first thing that we say is business attire, dark colors, basically boring … but my dear, that has changed.

Starting with this spring, we started to see more and more suit-sets with powerful floral prints. I am totally digging the trend because it’s fun to wear and you can play with the blazer or the pants mixing them with other pieces.

When I saw this suit, I already imagined myself styling it in so many different ways.

The most simple way to wear this suit is adding a pair of stilettos, for that elegant – sophisticated look.

I also chose to go for a more unusual styling, and yes, I know that suits equal elegant, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t add a pair of sneakers, a white T-shirt and call it a day.

I put together for you also 2 looks, in which I incorporated the blazer and the pants with other items.

T-shirt: Drew

Shoes: Steve Madden

Accessories: H&M and Guess

Sunglasses: Miu Miu

 

Jeans: Zara

T-shirt: American Eagle

Shoes: Christian Louboutin

I felt in love with the location where I shot the last pictures of the look… don’t forget that love is everywhere and you might find it in the places where you least expect.

 

 

Skater girl

Hello my lovelies,

I think all of us have days, when we want to put away the “Vogue” look and just let our inner tomboy come out and play.

The key in rocking a tomboy style outfit, is to add a feminine touch to it.

I wanted to go practice my skateboard skills (which btw are not that great), so I thought that was the perfect moment to choose more a tomboy look.

For my skater girl look I chose to wear my favorite pair of boyfriend jeans, a sports bra and layer it with a see-through T-shirt.

You don’t need to be always a tomboy, but when you want to dress like one, just be confident and remember that we don’t need just high heels and body con dresses to be and feel sexy.

Fishnet fever

Hello my lovelies,

Fishnet stockings… who would believe that in every other Instagram post we will see one? I couldn’t believe what a huge comeback they had at the beginning of this year: from the big catwalks to street style.

I think that there are 2 ways you can approach fishnet stockings: one is to wear them as an accessory and let them peak out from under your distressed jeans, or wearing low-waisted pants, show a few inches of fishnet above your pants’ waistline. The second way is to let them be the main focus of your outfit: show them off with miniskirts and heavy boots or dresses and high heels.

I usually wear mine just as an accessory and let them be seen through the holes of my ripped jeans and pair them with some sneakers.

They look cool, and punk-ish and really really trendy… is there any downside to it? Unfortunately the answer is yes. Because fishnet stockings are a really tricky piece, if you want to mix them with a miniskirt or a dress, a good styling is important. Believe it or not, is pretty easy to go for that trendy high-fashion look and get that 90’s style stripper look. I’m sorry but I couldn’t find a nicer way to say it.

I still think that they are a fun piece to have in your closet and mix them as you desire.
