Denim skirt – pencil style

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

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!

Shades of blue: layered outfit

Hello my lovelies,

Layering is one styling trick, that if done correctly, can be super useful: it keeps us warm but still stylish during cold months.

Many of us are afraid to do a layered outfit, because we don’t want to look with at least a size bigger. But if you master this little styling trick, instead of making you look bigger, it will give the impression of a more proportional silhouette.

If you are born with some styling skills, layering is not a problem for you, but if you are not one of those, honestly, I don’t believe is so much about the skills and ingenuity. It’s more about having the right pieces and know a few layering rules.

The most important rule that you should consider to follow, is knowing that under layers must be fitted, in order to keep your shape looking slim.

When styling a layered outfit, I like to play with texture, because the mix of materials will make you avoid “a size bigger” look.

Before I moved to California, I was living in Eastern Europe, where winter is no joke. Basically, dressed up like an onion with a million layers on me.

So, let’s all be some stylish onions this winter (hahaha)

How to wear your oversized jacket as a dress

Hello my lovelies,

In today’s post, I’ve created a look with this gorgeous oversized jean jacket. I have styled it different in this post, so if you want to see how it looks, check it out.

Being an oversized jacket, is super versatile and you can mix it with almost everything in your closet: dresses, skirts, pants and why not, even with jeans.

The slouchy look of it, makes it also perfect for some serious layering in the cold season.

In today’s post, I want to show you that if you are out of ideas, or in a “I don’t have anything to wear” moment, even a jacket can be worn as a dress.

For this particular jacket, I think you need to add a belt to accentuate your waist, so you avoid the boxy look given by the jacket. I told you in a previous post that I like to style everything with a brooch so I decided that this belt looked awesome with this cute spider brooch.

The stockings and the boots gives the perfect rock-ish look to the entire outfit.

I hope you have a great evening and thanks for stopping by.

XoXo, OD

How to wear blazer and denim shorts

Hello my lovelies,

If you are familiar with my blog, you know that for me fashion and style means combining pieces that we wouldn’t normally wear them together. This was also the main idea behind this outfit: you would not necessarily mix a pair of denim shorts, which are totally casual, with an elegant black blazer.

It is a street style outfit that is really appealing and will make you look fabulous, without trying too much.

What I like a lot about this look is that you can mix almost any shoes with it: high heels to rock your girls night out, sneakers, if you have to run some errands around the city, and even flats for an end of summer romantic walk with your love.

Being mid September, add a pair of combat boots and make it the perfect summer to fall transition outfit.

It is one of my favorite looks and I think that makes you look put together with items, that you have for sure in your dressing.
