There are almost no street style images to illustrate how cool this season’s hottest trend, the dark denim, looks in real life. That’s because it’s so new not many people have even thought about wearing it. To me, it’s super sophisticated and grown-up, it will most likely immediately elevate any simple outfit idea you had in mind, also it looks amazing against white, I can already picture myself wearing dark denim culottes with my white leather ankle booties.
Another one of my insta looks, where I’m wearing some of the items I’ve had for years. This hat, for example, I wore back in 2012 and the turtleneck in 2014, the pants in 2015. I’ve been reconsidering lately what I’m doing with my wardrobe and why I’m buying so much new stuff, when I have all these amazing clothes in my wardrobe. I’ve been on a shopping ban for the past 6 months to teach myself to appreciate all the high quality stuff that I already own.
If you’re done with 2017 and looking to get ready for the new fashion year, here’s a list of what’s cool and hot out there at the moment. Already got myself a pair of vinyl pants and now contemplating the rest.
Half of my shopping these days happens on Shopbop so the fact they’re running a year-end sale warms my heart. To be honest, I save everything I like to my wishlist on the website and then just check every once in a while, whether something gets marked down! More often than not these items get sold out before they mark down, but that’s always the case with Shopbop – whenever they have something I really like it sells out within day!
Anyways, I thought I’d share with you some of the affordable pieces from my Shopbop wishlist. You can get an additional 25% off by entering code JOY25 at check out!
As you can probably tell, not a day goes buy without me wearing something athleisure so recently I had this idea to share with you the ways I usually style my sporty looks when I want them to be less casual-weekend and more sophisticated day-to-night.
1. Whites and greens
Thank God for these two colors, they look amazing together and when I got this sporty hoodie I immediately knew I was going to wear it with something green. These pants are one of my favorites this year because of the material and the length and just the sophisticated detail I needed – the belt.

2. Bomber & Culottes
Sometimes the combination of black and red can look really chic, especially when you add a pair of red kitten heel boots. I love the juxtaposition of a cropped bomber and a pair of high waisted culottes which also happen to be velour!

3. Track Pants & Lace Up Heels
Definitely a warmer winter look, but eye-catching thanks to the sexy heels I paired my striped joggers with. I really love how it looks layered and voluminous on the top, but the cutout boots make it slightly elegant, if I may say so.
