How to style a flannel dress?

Who doesn’t love cozy flannel pattern in the Fall? But in the same time, we want to wear them without looking dated. So, ladies and gents let me introduce you the star of the show: the flannel dress.

Plaid might seem the easiest pattern to wear; but I’m sorry to be the one breaking it down for you: it is the trickiest to pull off. Of course, in case that you don’t want to look like you just came back from the 2000’s.

A plaid print styled correctly it can look really cool and can give a high fashion, sophisticated vibe.

When comes to flannel shirts, I always choose the oversized ones… just because it’s easier to style them in a way that looks trendy. If they are not giving me a little of that masculine’ish vibe … I just avoid them by any means.

That’s also the reason why I loved this dress in the first place. It is chunky and oversized.

The red and black plaid pattern is the most popular out of all and to be completely honest it is the color combo that I’m not crazy about at all. The way it looks though on this dress doesn’t bother me.

Today, I styled the dress in 2 different ways, but you don’t need to stop there. This dress is one that offers you a plethora of styling options and can be worn in various seasons. It can make the best layering piece over a pair of leather leggings and a biker jacket on your shoulders.

It is a few inches shorter than I expected, but paired with the patent leather ankle booties and a black felt hat I achieved a unique, more low-key sexy look.

I changed up the tune a little bit for the second part from sexy to girlie. Adding the super fun pair of sneakers, a beanie and a jean jacket, same dress looks completely different. More of a casual, fun look perfect for your Fall rendezvous.

My summer jam: floral maxi dress

When I think about hot summer days and long walks on the beach, my jam is for sure a floral maxi dress.

You have to love such an easy dress that you just throw it on and look so put together.

Honestly, I was always drawn to maxi dresses, but I never got one, until this summer. I simply did’t fine one before to have the length that I was looking for.

When comes to this particular type of dresses, I like them extra long, even though, I don’t wear them with hells or wedges.

I normally pair a maxi dress with a pair of flat sandals, or some cute slippers.

What I love the most about this floral maxi dress, are the little of the shoulder sleeves. It makes it extra feminine and sexy in the same time.

The buttons, that go all the way down, gives you the opportunity of wearing it in different ways. If you want to show off a little more skin, just unbutton it how much you want and it looks like a dress with a sexy slit.

Of course that being such a feminine dress, I paired it with some edgy booties to change completely the look.

Shooting this outfit in the desert, I felt that the boots were actually completing the look.

I just love everything about this dress: the pattern, the colors, fabric which is really light and of course the off the shoulders sleeves.

How do you like to wear you summer floral maxi dress?

I hope you have an amazing week, my lovelies.

How to rock the denim on denim trend

Double denim trend or denim on denim, whatever you want to call it, it’s been around for ages, but it’s one of those that won’t be going anywhere soon.

double denim

I sent my friend a picture with outfit (because the jeans were a gift from her) and what she told me it was funny. She was asking me if denim on denim it’s still on trend, because she loves to wear it but she thought that she was out of fashion. So Cami, this post is for you and for all of you that love double denim trend and you want to do it the right way.

Even thought it might look a pretty hard trend to nail it, I promise you it is not.

As a main rule, that you should follow on styling double denim is that the colors and the washes have to be completely different.

If you wanna go for a dark blue denim jacket make sure you pair it with a light washed pair of jeans. Or the other way around: light wash denim shirt with some black or gray jeans.

When doing this type of a look, I always look for pieces that fit me perfectly. It is a look that works better with slim cuts. So, a good tip will be to try it with your skinny jeans rather than your baggy ones.

A denim blue shirt with a pair of white jeans is my to go double denim look. It is a gorgeous look for summer time.

My denim shirt it’s pretty long so I prefer to tuck it in my jeans and leave more buttons open.

I kept my styling pretty simple and just layered some necklaces for the extra feminine touch. I wanted to complete the look with a pair of summer-ish shoes, and this wedges were the perfect.

How to wear the pleated midi skirt with sneakers

It’s hard to believe that you don’t have already a pleated midi skirt. This type of skirt is a staple closet and we’ve seen it around for a while now.

pleated midi skirt

A pleated midi skirt is super easy to wear. You can take it in 2 opposite styling areas: elegant or casual. All depends on what you feel like wearing or where are you going.

When you decide what approach you take for this skirt, the shoes are the ones that are setting the tone of your outfit.

If you want to go for an elegant look, you need just to add a pair of cute high heels and a top.

I usually like to do a more casual styling with this kind of skirt, so I’m going to opt for a pair of fashion sneakers.

Even though is spring, we were getting colder temperatures in LA the last couple of days.So, I find this sweater more than perfect to wear it with my spring-ish skirt.

The volumes, created by this chunky sweater and the skirt it is something that I really enjoy. Call me crazy but I love the loose fitting clothes.

For this outfit, I chose to propose the bag in 2 different ways: as a crossbody bag and as a bag belt. To be honest, I wore it as a belt bag, because it’s the perfect trick to accentuate your waist line.

The fact that I decided to add sneakers to this look it’s no surprise for anyone. I love to mix and match items in order to create unique looks. And this fashion sneakers were the va va voom that my outfit was missing.

Happy hump day, my lovelies!

Floral print shirt: spring mood

In my opinion, the floral print shirt is a must-have in everyone’s dressing for the 2018 spring season.

floral print shirt

Shirts, are for me one of my favorite clothing items, because you can find them in a lot of different styles: from elegant to casual, we can incorporate them in pretty much any outfit.

A super versatile piece, it can be worn by itself in the warmer months, or underneath a blazer, coat, when the weather requires some layering.

It is something about the floral print shirt that outlines your femininity and also gives your outfit a romantic vibe.

For today’s outfit, I paired my satin floral print shirt with a pair of high waisted jeans and a white vest.

I finished up the look with this gorgeous pair of oxfords, that can definitely elevate any look that you need.

Lately, I ended up buying all floral, bold prints pieces that I can’t wait to share them with you.

I think I’m already in all full spring mode ready for summer, baby!

I hope you have an awesome week, my lovelies.

XoXo, OD.

How to wear the famous palazzo pants

In today’s post, I wanna talk about a super trendy pair of bottoms: the palazzo pants.

palazzo pants

Palazzo pants can be pretty tricky to style, but they can help you achieve any type of look: from uptown chic to downtown sexy.

They certainly have that versatility and with the right styling, you can take them from the office to a fancy rooftop party.

I have to say that I own a couple of pairs, but when I saw these ones at H&M, I had to buy another pair. Well, actually not one, but two. I tried on the black ones and I liked so much the fitting that I went for a hunt in the city to find the beige pair in my size. It was the first time when I liked an item so much that I bought an item in 2 different colors.

If you are looking to buy a pair of palazzo pants, I would suggest to go for a pair of high waisted ones, so you will create a more balanced look.

I’m sure that this is not going to be the last post about this pants, but I’ll style them different each and every time so you will have more styling ideas of the same item.

For the first styling idea, I wanted something casual for a super busy Sunday.

Choosing a pair of sneakers for the palazzo pants gave me that laid back vibe that I was looking for.

The ruffled details on the waist just makes these pants to stand up more. I added an oversized T-shirt, that instead of tucking it in, I made a little front knot. I found that gave a nice touch to the entire look.

Being a pretty much black and white outfit, I wanted a pop of color which this time it was my bag, that I completely love.

I wish you all a great week my lovelies,

Until next time, XoXo.

Shorts and over the knee sock boots

Even though, most of us put our shorts away for the fall and winter season, I don’t think that we necessarily have to do that. We can definitely can wear shorts during winter and still look amazing. Of course that we need to find a way to style them and be warm in the same time.

shorts

My favorite way of wearing them during winter is with a pair of over the knee boots.

The OTK boots are for sure the shoes of the season and they will also keep your legs warm.

I would suggest though, to choose a pair of short pants that are not light weight. Denim, wool, suede or leather are great fabric options.

If the fabric is a little bit thicker they will look great styled with a pair of opaque black tights and some booties.

I decided to go for a fun colorful look and style my shorts with a blue sweater and a yellow blazer. The rhinestone flowers on my pants add them a little touch of elegancy.

In conclusion, even if it’s winter, don’t put away all your summer clothes, because they are some pieces that with the right styling, we can create some super cool winter outfits.

Camouflage vibes: the camo jacket

The camouflage print it’s been on trend since the 90’s. In the lasts couple of years, a statement piece, especially for the winter outfits it was the camo jacket.

camo jacket

The camo jacket it’s a one of a kind, because we can wear it all year round. It works great for the cooler summer nights as a light jacket, or during winter with a knit sweater and a cozy scarf.

Maybe if you have asked me a few years ago what I think about wearing camouflage print, the answer would have been no. It was the exact same case with the leopard print or latex.

Even before I started this blog, I decided to expand my horizon and step outside my comfort zone more often. I ended up feeling more comfortable and confident wearing pieces that I never thought I would.

Back to our topic of the day. Even though the camo jacket inspires a little masculinity, it can be very sexy.

I have to admit that I like a lot a look where feminine meets tomboy style. I like a lot how this camo jacket looks with jeans. But it is something about it that makes me always to mix it with dresses or skirts.

For today’s outfit, I paired my camo jacket with a mini black denim skirt and a gray sweatshirt. I finished up the look by adding a pair of combat boots that gives a badass vibe to the entire look.

There is though one more thing about the camouflage print that I wanna mention. There is enough just one piece with this print to polish a look. It is a statement print so our attention should be focus on one single item.

To make the camo print stand out, I like to mix it with neutral colors: whites, blacks and greys.

Let’s rock this new week, my lovelies. I wish you have a great one. XoXo

Trend alert: Corset Caged belts

As these interesting looking belts, are popping up more and more, today’s post is about them: the corset caged belts.

corset caged belts

I’ve started to see them in a lot of different outfits and I just asked myself what do I feel about them?

I have to admit that I like the idea behind this trend. We clearly live in a oversized everything era, so an accessory that brings the attention on the waist, a body part that we kind of ignored lately, isn’t a bad thing.

Speaking of the oversized trend and the corset belts fever, these two can actually work really nice together. Add a corset belt over an oversized t-shirt or jacket and it will automatically give you an extra sexy vibe.

The corset caged belts are for sure an eye catcher. It is a cool accessory that will add style to any regular outfit.

I decided to go for a basic look, something super simple, so you can see how a single accessory can change your entire outfit.

Without the corset caged belt, today’s outfit would have been just a white shirt and a pair of coated black jeans. With the right accessory it is that simple to change a common look into a statement one.

Details are the ones that make the difference my lovelies.

I wish you all that 2018 will make each and every dream of yours come true. Happy New Year!

Fringed knitted dress

One of my favorite pieces to wear during winter, it is by far the knitted dress. I think they are absolutely gorgeous looking and very easy to style.

A knitted dress or sweater dress, it’s a garment that it shouldn’t miss from any girl’s dressing.

Personally, I believe that looks unique and incredibly chic, but besides this it is one of the comfiest dresses that I own.

Usually you can find the knitted dress in various lengths, cuts and styles. You have to choose which type of dress fits you the most to make a statement on everyone.

To be honest, when I first saw this dress, the fringed hem was the think that caught my attention.

The knit is also beautiful and the fabric is super soft. The dress is designed with an attached slip, so even though the knit holes are pretty big you don’t need to worry what you would wear underneath so it’s not see through.

It is a fitted tank dress, so it can be styled in different ways. I chose to wear it with a leather jacket over, just because I loved the textures mix.

A different way to style it is on top of your favorite button down shirt for a more office look.
