Summer Sun

A great evening starts off with a great golden hour, a great casual summer look, and your ‘squad’ right there beside you. Ah, I hate that word, but let’s move on, and leave it at that. It was a hay day that day, and I don’t mean the animal farm/countryside app, but actual fields of hay a la Tuscany, by the side of the road, beautiful, summer’ish, windy, hot, very childhood reminiscent, and kinda boho cool if we’re to speak fashion. What to wear in the summer sun? Casual Summer Look. A bikini is usually a great idea, but not really. Given the social courtesies outside the beach. Therefore my chosen summer outfit for this hay day was really a no brainer and a look I keep doing in summer. At least this summer since I found this pair of cutoffs. #obsessed Oh… and I…

6 Major Prints To Wear In 2017: How Are They Any Different From Past Prints?

A very long time ago prints were all over the place, and Olivia Palermo was the queen of prints alongside Blake Lively and the Gossip Girl squad. To be honest prints were the one style gimmick you could pull off and get away with being a slob, or a fashion ignoramus. Fashion Week streets were like a bloody circus of flowers mixed with fruits, and forests, and stripes, and anything you could think of really. It was the era of marvellous kitsch. Even if you had no idea what to wear or what style even meant for you, all you had to do was pick a floral top and mix it with some stripe pants, throw a floral jacket on top, some bright heels on, and maybe 26 more things you can grab on your way out to wherever it is you were going, just…

Get A Jump On Hairstyle Trends for Fall

You’re in an exclusive club of women if you’ve had the same hairstyle ever since you were a little girl. A British study reports that only 6% of women have never changed their styles at all, while more than three times that many say they change theirs just about every single year. The study goes on to say that 41% of women change their basic hairdos once every two years. And the rest change their looks whenever inspiration strikes. Sometimes it’s before getting married or after having a baby. Sometimes it’s to get a fresh start after a romantic breakup or for a new job. Sometimes it’s to look younger, to look more mature. And sometimes it’s just out of sheer boredom. Whichever group you’re in, fashion trends fueled by runway shows, celebrities, and movies & television, are the top influencers of decisions you make…

The One Shoulder Trend

Monday morning. Tired af. Can’t bother with fashion, but still doesn’t wanna look like a slob. #lifestruggles Therefore raises hand to ask question. “Uhm… is there one style trick to make me look put together, sophisticated and basically like I made an effort, but actually haven’t?” “Yes, replied Fashion in her jaded bored kinda way. Give them the cold shoulder. All. The. Time.” “Oh, ” said with a smirk, trying to seem un-interested, and… you know… cold. “No, peasant. Not like that. (eyeroll) The trick is in the one shoulder trend. Show the world just one of your shoulders, presumably your best, and the rest is irrelevant. You will look sophisticated no matter how much you screw up the rest of your outfit.” *throws pics of one shoulder trend in face 2017 has been the year of the one shoulder trend and it’s kind of…

Ribbons & Bows: The Detail Trend Of 2017!

The moment a trend that is even remotely preppy rises like a bloody Phoenix, I panic. At the first sight of ribbons and bows last spring I thought nothing of it – at first –  just a poor case of trying to bring back preppy style. So I concluded it all with a pfff! Phulease. #asif But then I saw more ribbons and bows. I kept quite still. But before I knew it man it was raining ribbons and bows. They were stuck on button-downs, shirts, dresses, tops, bags, shoes, people were wearing them around their necks and hair. What is happening?!!!! The ribbons and bows are the new accessory trend of 2017 summer. AKA the trendy tiny details that make a trendy massive difference. THIS is what’s happening. Why the panic you might think? Well… growing up I like to think I was such…

Tea Dresses: The #1 Dress For All Body Types & All Occasions!?

Beach dress. Check. Office dress. Check. Cocktail dress, weekend dress, date night dress, flirty dress, preppy dress. Check, check check, check. If you think I’m throwing around words, you’re wrong. Reaching adulthood (#eyeroll) has also made me reach some new sartorial conclusions: staples will always beat trends, and trends are better when they come from staples. Whatever, it’s not a big deal, but when it comes to tea dresses I think we’re sitting on a goldmine. Back in the 40s tea dresses were the home dresses women used to wear as casual outfits around the house. Loose lines and unstructured silhouettes characterised this dress in which you had tea. What started off as a light wear kinda dress later was redesigned to fit all occasions and all body types. Or at least to be more versatile, and the outcome was amazing. If you ask me…

3 Office Outfits For Summer With Clothes You Already Have!

Sometimes you love to dress up, and lay out your office outfits for summer 3 days in advance, but sometimes you just can’t be bothered. It’s fine. I mean somewhere between not falling asleep fast enough on Sunday, and that Monday blues and never-enough-coffees who gives a shite about fashion anyway? What to wear suddenly sounds like the most idiotic question ever. “Like, seriously, you should be so lucky I actually bothered to put on pants today. Ugh.’ #thoughts Shocking as this may sound, eves us – fashion gurus and style stalkers get tired once in a while, and feel no jazz whatsoever when it comes to our office outfits for summer, let alone shop for them. Best case scenario we could use a style assistant. Or rewind a few years back to kindergarten and first grades and we’ll take whatever our moms laid out…

Office Shoes: Can We Actually Wear Slippers (Slides) To Work?

Who’s with me on this one? Okay, truth be told I go back and forth between slaying in stiletto heels as high as my ego, and wearing flip-flops with a power suit? Btw, can I do that? By the looks of fashion for the past 3 years we kinda can do whatever the hell we want, with a slight business etiquette and office-attire-attention in mind. So, in office shoes land – theoretically we can wear slippers to work. Work attire has to be appropriate, slightly formal, smart, clean, you can go for edgy, comfy, chic, sophisticated, basic, super business, or super laid back depending on your job. Nevertheless a great office look will always be all the above with a little bit of ‘you’ in there as well. Some women love to strut in heels. They feel empowered by the sexy strong shoes, yet even the…

You wore it to high-school a la Beverly Hills 90210, to college a la Twin Peaks style, to parties a la Justin & Britney Denim Love Homage. That mini denim skirt was your best friend. the staple of a very grungy, slightly tacky closet. You wore it religiously and loved it. Then you grew up, and let me guess: you swore to never wear it again. Big mistake. In fashion, as in life never say never. Fast forward over 10 years and who’s going denim skirt shopping? Who’s rocking a skimpy little denim skirt with a flirty shirt on Instagram? A-ha. Ladies… it’s 2017 and the denim skirt is back and more sophisticated than ever, so there’s really no need for panic. We will not all look like versions of ourselves back…
