How to wear the flared jeans?

Flared jeans are one of those items that are again back on trend. They have an amazing silhouette that became famous in the 70’s. I have to confess: I always enjoyed that decade’s fashion.

So, if you are tired of your everyday skinny jeans, a great alternative will be the flare denim.

I want to say though, that they are not as easy to style, as your skinny ones. They require a little bit more attention to details.

For example, try a pair of flared jeans with a high waist to accentuate the curves that you actually want to. The bonus par: they will also give you an elongate silhouette.

When wearing this style of jeans, you need to keep in mind one word: balance.They look amazing with crop tops, waist length blazers or jackets.

As for shoes, I believe that the flared jeans look the best with high heels, platforms or even wedges. A high sole shoe, will make you definitely look taller and your legs like they don’t have an end. And that, it’s just any girl’s dream.

You don’t have to give up your trustworthy skinny jeans for a pair of flared ones, but they are a great addition to your closet, for when you want to try something fresh, something different.

Oversized hoodie or sweatshirt dress

One trend that we see more often in the street style zone, it is the oversized hoodie or sweatshirt dress with over the knee boots.

oversized hoodieIf you ask me, some of the most beautiful outfits are the ones that blend together contrasting elements. In this case, a sport-ish oversized hoodie, paired with some elegant and feminine over the knee boots.

Of course, that all the stores offer the oversized alternatives for the classic hoodie. You have also an easier option: just “shop” for one in your boyfriend’s closet.

Don’t be afraid that it will look baggy and slouchy, because my dear, that’s exactly what we are looking for.

If you choose to wear your oversized hoodie with a pair of over the knee sock boots, you will totally change the sport look of the dress and just give a little sex-appeal to the whole outfit.

To be honest, even if it is a super easy outfit to put together, is not that easy to wear. In my opinion it gives you an alluring look. With that being said, if you are not comfortable turning heads and being the center of attention, I wouldn’t recommend this look as a daily basis outfit.

Even though it is not an outfit that shows a lot of skin, and the dress kind of hides your body shape, it is extremely sexy.

I would totally chose to wear an oversized hoodie with a pair of over the knee boots, to any night out, club or party because it is actual and uber cool.

Looking classy during fall

Hello my lovelies,

In today’s post I chose to show you a super simple outfit, that will make you look classy during fall.

The entire outfit is created out of basic pieces that I’m sure you can find them in your closet. It is easy to recreate it, in case that you like it.

I love to mix the cami silk top in a lot of my outfits, because is super comfortable and gives a sexy look.

For fall outfits, I like to wear the cami top underneath deep v neck sweaters, or with a knitted blazer, like in today’s post.

The bottom part of my outfit I kept it pretty simple, with a pair of black skinny jeans and this camel shade open-toe booties.

The accessories are really simple, because I wore this outfit for a brunch date with my girls.

I wanted to keep the fall color scheme and stay in the beige zone, so I thought that this brown beautiful dragonfly brooch (yep, I know, another brooch) will fit perfectly in the scene with some gold bangles.

If I would want to wear it this outfit in the evening, for dinner, I would add a statement necklace, some earrings and call it a night.

One dress, 2 different looks

One dress two different looks?

Today’s post is about how to use the same piece (in this case the dress) and integrate it in two different outfits.

I wrote about slip dresses before here and what I like the most about them is that you can put together a super stylish outfit and you’ll look like you didn’t try hard at all.

For today’s post I used this super cute asymmetric slip dress to create two separate looks.

For the first look I decided to throw over the dress a fluffy and cozy pullover. I loved how it looks with the slinky slip dress underneath. As a result, I believe that the contrast between the materials was the key for this styling. In conclusion, the only requirement that’s left, it was to add a pair of booties to finish the look.

For the second look, I replaced the sweater with a biker jacket.First of all, I’m not a big fan of wearing high heels with my slip dresses, because I like to dress them down a little. That is the reason why I choose to keep the booties for the second look too.

In addition, I chose this silver biker jacket, because I really like the effect that was created together with the shimmery of the dress.

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.

Trend alert: the vinyl skirt

Hello my lovelies,

Vinyl is a really big fashion trend right now and to be honest I didn’t think that I would be digging it.

While it doesn’t matter if we talk about skirts, pants, or coats, vinyl it is for sure the latest street style trend.

I like how vinyl skirts look in an outfit if they are dressed down and worn with a heavy knit sweater or even a sweatshirt. I’m not a big fan of how they look with high heels or in a more elegant look.

First of all, this skirt has a funny story behind, because I wasn’t looking to buy one, not even crossed my mind that I would wear one. EVER! However, while I was in H&M shopping for some sweater, I found the one that I’m wearing in this outfit. So, on my way to the fitting room, I saw the skirt. I was 100% sure that I would not like it, but just for fun I decided to try it on. Oh well, it seems like I have a big surprise. Most of all, I loved how it looked mixed with this sweater; perfect combination.

In conclusion, that’s how this look was born: in a fitting room at H&M.

So, are you digging the vinyl trend?

Sweater dress and over the knee boots

Hello my lovelies,

If I had to choose my favorite fall pieces, it would have to be for sure an oversized sweater dress and some over the knee boots. Besides the fact that they go perfect hand in hand, they also give you that relaxed, yet super trendy look.

As much as I love OTK boots, I don’t own too many pairs, simply because they don’t fit me. Almost all of them are super large for me and I just don’t like the way they look.

I was super excited to find this pair at Aldo because they are super stretchy (basically they look like an over the knee sock) so they fit me like a dream.

When it comes to sweater dresses, my favorite are the ones that are slightly oversized and can be worn with combat boots or sneakers, if I want to dress them down, but also with a pair of heeled OTK boots, for a more elegant look. I think that they are super comfy, warm and just perfect for the fall season.

You definitely have to own a few sweater dresses, because they are one of those items that you can’t go wrong with.

I decided to give up any necklaces and accessorize my sweater dress with this cute bee brooch. Brooches are super back on trend and I have to admit they are my favorite accessory. For sure you will see more of them in future posts, because I wear them on shirts, coats, belts, hats, almost everything.

How are you styling your favorite sweater dresses? Let me know in the comment box below. I would love to hear from you

How to wear leather pants

Today is all about the leather pants. They have been on trend forever and if worn correctly, they can give the most stylish, chic or elegant look.

 

I already told you in a previous post, that one of my favorite fabrics to wear when fall comes, it’s leather. I talked here about my favorite leather dress, or in this post about how to style pleated midi leather skirt.

When styling leather pants, you have to be careful what are you going to pair them with. I usually like to create a contrast between fabrics, so for example, to achieve an elegant look, I like to mix the leather pants with a super feminine lace top.

In today’s outfit post, I wanted to do a casual look, something more street style. I have this pair of leather pants for over a year, but I didn’t wear them once, because they don’t have that perfect fit, cigarette cut that I prefer. I ended up loving how they look, paired with this super loose knit sweater.

Being an all black outfit, I wanted to add a pop of color by wearing this super interesting pair of pumps. What’s so special about them? They are not leather, it’s more of a perforated fabric that sets them on the casual side.

To finish off the look, I added this stylish hat, that made the perfect match with the shades.

I hope you had an awesome weekend,

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.

Band T-shirt dress trend

Hello my lovelies,

The band T-shirt trend was huge in the 90s and it was basically the urban groupie definition.. If then, the trend was to wear them with ripped jeans, flannel shirt over and motorcycle boots, now, when they had such a big comeback, there are no fashion boundaries. Pair them with feminine accessories, high heels or even pencil skirt to get the ultimate street style.

Lately, I’m all about the low maintenance grunge look (especially that I was super sick when I took this pictures, so I needed something that didn’t require too much effort from me), but I think that a band T-shirt dress looks more badass than never.

With this look, I tried to bring a little bit of the 90s Seattle scene into present… I think I did a pretty good job 🙂

How do you like to style your band T-shirt or dresses?

Have an amazing week,
