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.

Slip dress: Drew

Shoes: Converse

Bag: Zara

Denim Jacket: Gap

 

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.
