Hello my lovelies,
The star of the show in today’s post is for sure, the coat.
When I saw it in the store, I automatically knew that I want it to be mine.
Trying on a small size, which it was way too big for me, it was a big disappointment, because I thought that is a very unique coat and I could create some really cool outfits with it. I was checking what else they had, when on the other side of the store I saw another coat, which for my surprise it was an XS.
The fabric of the coat is what makes it so different and interesting… kind of a mesh, but not really, that’s the reason why I chose to style it with a leather mini skirt and some fishnet leggings.
I decided to go for a black on black outfit, more on the edgy side, because for some reason I find myself digging this style a lot.
Accessories: Zara and Guess
In today’s post, I want to talk about my favorite styling tricks and that’s how we wear socks and high heels.
NO! I’m definitely not talking about the tourist “faux pas” socks and sandals :).
Before we knew that almost “everything is allowed” in fashion, (I said ALMOST, because there is a thin line between an outstanding styling and ridiculous) we were wearing socks only with our athletic shoes at the gym, or to do a quick run to the grocery store. Now, that sounds really boring and flat. How much fun you can have when styling socks and high heels. It is not a new trend at all, but I have a feeling that we’ll start to see it more often again.
I have to say it though, the socks and high heels sandals are a combination that fashion conservatives tend to stay away from.
It is one of my favorite styling tricks for fall, because I don’t want to wear only boots when the air starts to be a little bit crispy. In my crazy mind, sometimes I think that heeled sandals were invented as an opportunity to show off your socks :))
A really nice contrast is mixing sporty socks (with athletic stripes) and your feminine high heels to bring the whole outfit on the casual side, wearing a pair of lurex or even glitter socks will give a little extra something to the entire outfit.
For this outfit, I chose a pair of thick over the knee socks, that I didn’t pull all the way up, so it will match the volume that I created in the top of my outfit with the chunky casual-elegant hoodie.
