As a stylist I often say it’s better to keep most of your outfit basic, and add no more than one or two trends in case you don’t want to look like a victim of fashion. That being said, sometimes I just don’t pay attention to how many trends I’m wearing at once up until I need to come up with a name for the outfit post.
SHOP LEATHER BERETS:
SHOP WIDE 80’S BELTS:
If I’m being completely honest with you, I think it’s more than 5 trends (insert the see-no-evil monkey emoji). Let’s count: here you have a leather beret, a checked blazer, a wide 80’s statement belt, vinyl leggings, velvet sock boots and a wooden bag. That’s six, but I’m not brave enough to admit it. Does that make me a victim of fashion?
SHOP VINYL PANTS:
SHOP SOCK BOOTS:
The thing is, most of my seasonal wardrobe consists of the latest trends, but I’m not a shopaholic, some of these items are new, but the majority I have been wearing for over a year, can fashion victims do that? Anyways, the message that I’m trying to convey here is wear as many trends as you like as long as you know what you’re doing.
A very unexpected accessory, I must admit but one of my favorite Ukrainian brands asked me to style their leather peplum belt and I immediately had the idea of wearing it with something sporty or even masculine. This outfit was styled in less than a minute and I really like how it turned out, what do you think?
Sweatshirt – Opening Ceremony (similar ones here and here)
Track pants – Asos (cool ones here, here and here)
Peplum belt – RICCHME
Sneakers – Converse
Sunnies – ZeroUV
Every once in a while I love sharing with you some of my instagram looks that I didn’t have a chance to take better pictures of. This is just the case for today’s outfit, I enjoyed every single minute of wearing this utilitarian two-piece from NA-KD, but my day was so packed I couldn’t spare more than 3 minutes to take these images on my way to the coffee shop. I really like how they turned out though, the cold background really brought out the color of the co-ord.
It took me a while before I caved to what’s probably the hottest fall-winter shoe trend – white boots. I loved how they looked on other bloggers but I’m pretty conservative when it comes to my own shoes, as you may have noticed. What pulled the trigger was browsing through net-a-porter (where I sometimes steal outfit ideas, shhh!), when I saw how white boots work with so many of my regular outfits. Before that I have to admit I thought they would only look good with special clothes, but here’s my attempt to show you guys how you can replace your regular ankle boots or white sneakers with white boots and look super stylish!
Just the kind of outfit I would normally wear with a pair of white kicks – a trench coat layered over a camo jacket, but I absolutely love how these Jeffrey Campbell boots elevated the whole look and made it super sophisticated. I added another white piece to align the whole look (just to be safe!) and that’s what I recommend you start with.
Get the look:
I absolutely love how the whole light blue and white combo brings out the whiteness of these boots, this simple outfit becomes very street-style-worthy with just the addition of the shoes and a dash of burgundy velvet.
Get the look:
Checks & a leather beret
It’s always a good idea to mix a couple of the season’s trends into one look, and for the third outfit I chose my new checked overalls and a leather beret for that 60’s & 70’s vibe.
Get the look:
Let me know which look you guys liked the most and what do you think about the white boot trend? Would you go for it or have you already done so? How long do you think this trend will last?
When you don’t plan to take outfit pictures for the blog but the weather is nice and your photographer accompanies you on the way to a Thai take out place, where you might eat a little too often. On my usual work days I love wearing cozy knits and some high waisted jeans with comfy shoes. A little baker boy cap is always a good idea, when you’re afraid to look too basic.
