How to wear a kimono with jeans

Hello lovelies,

We see it in the window of every store right now- the trendy kimono. Patterned usually with lots of flowers in bloom, or even palm trees fronds, it is incredibly appealing and you definitely can be temped by the fabulous print, but are we ready to wear it outside?

I told you before that I’m totally digging the pijama trend, which I think is totally stylish, so of course I love the kimono’s but the last thing that we want is to look like we forgot to take off our loungewear robe.

Styling a kimono it is really simple and requires the most basic attire: a T-shirt and some skinny jeans.

If you want to create an outfit using a kimono as your center piece, you should give the entire look the idea of effortless, like the kimono is was thrown on careless. Personally, I wouldn’t recommend trying to match the design, or adding more layers than the jeans and a T-shirt, because your entire look will look over-thought, which is exactly the opposite of an “I didn’t try too much” outfit.

Back to school – outfit ideas

Hello my lovelies,

August means that summer is almost gone and even if it seemed too short, summer break is over and it’s time for “Back To School”.

I remember that for me, going back to school it was always a great reason to go shopping and renew my wardrobe for the new season.

Even if it’s a long time since I graduated college (we are not even talking about high school because I’ll start to feel old haha), for today`s post I was thinking what I would wear if I had to go back to school now. With that being said, I created some outfit ideas that are school appropriate, comfortable but still stylish.

How to wear slip dresses

Hello my lovelies,

Slip dresses are another 90`s item that are strongly back in the trend game.

You may think that is not an easy item to pull off, because it can be pretty challenging  to go outside with a dress that literally looks like lingerie. But just let me prove you wrong. Styling wise, you can put together some really nice outfits alternating different style zones: from elegant to edgy, rock or retro you can do pretty much everything.

There is a combination of sexy and laid-back about this dress that just makes me love it and I don’t even have to say anything about the fabric, because it is so silky and so damn soft to the touch.

I think I’ve worn mine with pretty much everything: biker jacket and a pair of booties, gladiator sandals, for a night out I just added a pair of single strap stilettos; although my favorite way to wear it is a T-shirt underneath and a pair of white sneakers.

If you don’t like layering and you enjoy more going for a minimal style, just go heavy with your accessories and your look will be simply perfect.

The perfect pair of pants for this summer

Hello my lovelies,

It’s summer, baby! As you can see, cropped flowy wide-legs pants are on the racks of every store in different silhouettes, colors, lengths, patterns. I think that they are the perfect pair of pants for the summer because they are extremely comfortable and light-weight in the heat.

When I was thinking before at a pair of wide-legs pants, I didn’t believe that I would enjoy wearing this ankle length style. All of my flare pants were, either covering my shoes completely, or just a few inches above my knee (culottes). Now I felt in love with them and I have a lot of fun creating new outfits for different occasions.

It takes no effort to throw them on and their biggest attribute is that provide endless styling options. Add a T-shirt and sneakers (which I did as well) when you are out for a walk or running errands, or a button-down and some high-heels for a summer dinner on a nice patio. It doesn’t matter which way you choose to style them, the look is flattering and really chic.

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.
