There’s so much going on in this outfit, at least for the minimalist in me: an off-shoulder detail, stripes and fringe, exaggerated sleeves, a wide waist belt and red slingbacks to top it all off! Basically this post is about how to pull off something as unflattering as this striped shirt – it’s oversized but short, it has huge sleeves and a collar. It’s been hanging in my closet for over a year until I found a proper way to wear it. My answer is baring one shoulder and cinching the waist with a wide belt, that’s so trendy right now!
It’s definitely the trench season that we’ve all been waiting for for too long. Me personally since March, because of this new Cheap Monday trench coat that’s been gathering dust in my closet ever since. I’m a huge believer in trench coats and every once in a while I love wearing them as dresses, with heels and an elegant bag, cinched with a belt Audrey Hepburn style.
This particular trench coat has a cool sleeve detail that makes it oh so special, and a great addition to edgier outfits that I can’t wait to wear it in, now that we’re done with the annual trench-as-a-dress routine
Nothings screams spring more to me than a pastel duster coat in a light fabric. I chose to wear this powdery blue goodness with everything white to accentuate how breezy it feels. I already see it in gorgeous combos with light blue jeans and cutoffs or maybe even nothing else but a wide belt.
I was obsessed with the vinyl trend the moment I saw it in mini skirts, then came the pants, which I deem incredibly sexy and unique. This is definitely not the kind of trend you’ll be seeing everywhere, simply because there’s not much vinyl goodness you can buy online, so if you feel the power to rock it, go ahead! My suggestion is to pair vinyl bottoms with heels or flats, sporty outerwear (I’m crazy about this 90’s rain mac!) and logo tees. Another love of mine is the Champion logo so I couldn’t help but get myself one of their t-shirts this season. Another option I’ll try with these bad boys is a dark blazer and some sneakers or loafers!
I’m not usually one to wear several statement pieces in a single outfit, my usual safe outfit formula is one statement piece plus neutral basics. This time I was inspired by the arrival of spring and simply bored by the lack of color on my instagram feed, so I decided to trow a pair of embroidered shoes, a printed coat and a hand painted bag into the mix, I felt like all of these pieces had something in common so they won’t look super overwhelming altogether. To avoid the overdone look I finished the outfit off with simple mom jeans and a black hoodie. I personally don’t feel like this was too much, what about you?
