Some of us (including me) might think a loafer is one ugly shoe but this year it got me curious. I can’t help but admire the uber cool loafer looks some of my favourite fashionistas have put together and maybe I’m ready to get a pair for myself, especially since it’s such a great transitional item – you can start wearing it right now and all through the fall, it goes well with skirts and pants and let’s not forget about the Parisian vibe that’s going on.
Can you think of a more relaxed summer outfit choice than a loose minimal jumpsuit? I can’t!
Sometimes getting dressed on a hot day becomes such a nuisance I can barely make myself throw on an oversized dress. This minimal jumpsuit is a great solution when all you seek in an outfit is lightness and comfort. I love that it looks a bit slouchy and the fabric is breezy enough to get through the heat.
This is probably my favorite way to style sexy tops like this one – with slouchy denim that is, and the more distressed the better. I couldn’t wait for the temps to get a little warmer to wear my lace up heels from last summer, still one of the most flattering shoes I own, so I had to throw them into the mix as well. A small cross body is always my bag of choice for almost any outfit, but this time I didn’t want anything to distract from the beautiful back detail, hence the large leather tote, also from last year.
As a personal stylist I often find my clients struggle the hardest with their winter style. To be honest I sometimes struggle too, especially since I’m living in a climate where below zero temps are not uncommon for winter months. Most of the time the first things I’m thinking about when it comes to winter style are skinny jeans, heavy boots and lots of knitwear, but let’s face it, such combos are boring.
I’ve drawn up a small list of tricks I’m using to make my winter outfits less boring, when I’m in the mood for it. Are you using any of these? How do you spice up your winter outfits?
1. Ponchos and capes
Just throw a long poncho over your average winter outfit or replace the usual scarf and you immediately look like someone rushing to a fashion show! SHOP PONCHOS AND CAPES:
2. Overknee boots
They protect your legs from the cold and are extremely trendy right now.
SHOP OTK BOOTS:
3. Total looks
Combine same color pieces for a sophisticated look.
4. Colored fur
Patchwork fur and multi-colored fur is extremely hot this winter plus it’s the one of the warmest things you can wear.
SHOP COLORED FUR:
An unexpected touch to add to your blacks or pastels. SHOP METALLIC SKIRTS:
6. Maxi coats
Go for the long coat this winter for a chic and trendy vibe.
SHOP MAXI COATS:
7. Layering outerwear
We all know this trick but do we use it often enough?
8. Snake print boots
The only 70’s touch you need in your outfits! SHOP SNAKE BOOTS:
Go for a chic woolen beret instead of your regular hats or beanies for that french girl vibe. SHOP BERETS:
Not that I don’t have any more weather appropriate outfits to share with you guys, I just think it’s about time I’ve shown you these overknees that have become my favorite party shoes in November. I absolutely love sexy thigh highs paired with large knits, pants are optional, but obviously not for this sweater length haha.
I’ve been working hectically in the studio styling and organizing shootings, working with clients and today’s my first free day in weeks! Achievements so far: woke up at 12 pm, went grocery shopping, which I hadn’t done in a while, met a friend for coffee, made this post and did my hair for the night on the town. Which shoes do you think I plan on wearing tonight? Overknees!
