I don’t know how I lived without a beret before! I mean it’s always been there in my hat drawer but I just didn’t feel like putting it on and looking ridiculous up until this fall. Now I have two of them and I think I want more! A simple woolen or leather beret elevates any blazer and jeans outfit like no other accessory and the whole french vibe going on right now becomes easily attainable for even the laziest of us. Are you on board with this trend?

I haven’t published any of my Cravings posts for a while so I thought I’d share with you one of my most recent addictions: dusty rose and blush pink (aka rose gold, nude pink, powdery rose, rose quartz or peachy pink, if there’s even a difference, I’m confused!) It’s these shades of pink we’ve been seeing all over Instagram thanks to certain Kardashian/Jenner personas (that’s officially the first time these surnames are mentioned on this blog!), who I totally blame for setting this fashion trend.
In case you’re wondering, how to wear blush and rose quartz, these shades look especially powerful in shiny textures like satin or simple fitted garments like turtlenecks and bodysuits, also they look amazing paired with light khaki and silver gray hair, if you must go all the way I’m definitely surrounding myself with these colors asap, if you’re not a pink person but wanna try, I suggest going for an accessory like a bag or a pair of sneakers in blush or nude pink.
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:
As a personal stylist the number one question I’m dealing with on a daily basis is how to prepare for the new season and winter has to be the most challenging time, when styling a decent look gets complicated by the unbearable cold. Here’s my top 9 items that will make your winter stylish and trendy without compromising your health. All of them are versatile and will definitely match your staples from fall and the previous seasons.
I don’t about you guys but for me finding the perfect jeans is one of the ultimate life goals along with building a successful career and buying my own house and it’s always lingering at the back of my mind wen I’m shopping. I love how with every year the trendy denim is becoming less distressed, less skinny, looser, more high waisted, and a lot more exciting with all the frayed edges, patchworking and large cuffed hems. Skinny jeans won’t go anywhere but isn’t it amazing to wear something that you feel a lot less self conscious, and dare I say, a lot cooler in? For me these are wide leg jeans, cropped flares and mom jeans.
While the (hopefully) perfect pair of denims is on its way to me, here’s a little bit of inspiration and tips on where to buy cool jeans for fall and winter, in case you guys are on the hunt as well.
