The OVERSIZED Leather Jacket Is Taking Over The World!

Its tiny sibling better start counting its blessings. It is official: the fitted skinny leather jacket is gone and replaced by its sophisticated grown up classic sister the oversized leather jacket that has slung off celebs’, bloggers’, and all the who’s who’s of the sartorial world’s shoulders way too much lately for us to remain ignorant to its fashion statement. Ever since Kim Kardashian’s style has evolved more into slouchy oversized cuts and designs it’s like everyone was finally ready to practice what fashion designers were preaching for some time. And so shops are now packed with different versions of oversized leather jackets. The oversized leather jacket is basically the same shit only cut bigger, slightly heavier, a bit more vintage BUT a lot more sophisticated. It is basically the classic leather jacket of the 90s with an 80s twist, and a modern style. It…

A Little Monday Throwback Never Hurt Nobody: #SummerFestival

Crazy times my friends. Juggling life, and work, and a bit of play in the the midst of fashion week. It don’t get anymore chaotic than this. I call it the headless chicken dance, I being the little chicken sans the head, and the dance being my daily life these days. It’s all good though, I’ve had some pretty good selfies over the weekend, worked out, ate bad but felt good about myself, even had a brief good hair moment there for about 30 minutes. Ya’ know. #s’allgood Remember when this summer I bombarded you guys with some posts from Sziget Festival? Yeah, this post and this post. Well… in case you liked them a lot, or you miss summer – I GOT MORE! This time though they’re more street style photos taken by my doll-pal Florina Ciupertea. I, and her are in there somewhere…

The PENCIL Skirt & Why All Women Love It?

There are trends. And then there are timeless styles. No matter the fads in town the latter will always have our hearts. Such is the case of the one skirt style that flatters every woman, that’s great for office as well as parties, or more formal gatherings. The PENCIL SKIRT. With autumn here hems and lengths are a bit longer, and we ditch the relaxed silhouettes of summer for more polished, structured and sophisticated cuts and style. For working women pencil skirts are the #1 office style staple. They’re like this sartorial uniform that’s never passe and you can’t go wrong with. Not to mention how quickly it literally polishes up a look, regardless of what you pair it with. Which only brings me to my next idea: how easy it is to wear pencil skirts in terms of the ‘How To Style Them?’. Due to…

How To Wear Body Chains All Year Round?

Or maybe I should’ve asked ‘WHY?’? When it comes to body chains – the #1 body jewelry trend for summer – I think there are three types of ladies. 1) Hate body chains altogether. 2) Love them and wear them. 3) Like them, but are skeptical about wearing one. Wearing body chains in summer makes a lot of sense, cause you can show them off either in your bathing suit or more revealing outfits: bare back tops, low cut blouses, crop tops, bustiers etc. Of course once the cold season arrives nobody’s actually stopping us from keeping those body chains on. Why would we do this though? Well… as a girl who in summer rarely parts ways with my body chain, I can tell you there’s a bit of sexiness, enticement and empowerment a body chain gives you. Even if no one can see it.…

Major Autumn Trend For Girls & Boys: TURTLENECKS

Every year I say the same thing once autumn settles in: ‘never before have sweaters been so IN.’ Difference is, this year it’s actually true (Ha!). How so? Imagine all the sweaters styles in history, imagine all the hip designs that were once cool, imagine those granny chic cuts, those 90s crop ones, last year’s chunky and oversized styles. Now imagine you can wear any and look fab. Well, that’s what today’s sweater fashion is all about. With an extra adage to the whole lot. The TURTLENECKS. The rise of this look in both fitted as well as loose chunky styles comes as no surprise. Not with the 70s on the rise, hence the extension of this trend to menswear as well. YES women rule the world of fashion, or so they say, but lately whatever we wear, buys can wear too. Whatever’s hot for us…

The WHITE Coat: YES Or NO?

”I’m dreaming of a white Christmas… ” Yeah, yeah, that’s great and all, we all wish a white Christmas, BUT what we really should be focusing on until Christmas is a certain sartorial choice, that just goes hand in hand with a white Christmas. A WHITE Coat. We’ve already established that pretty much everything is hot and hip these days, but each season there is one item that stands out. And this season belongs to wrap coats with the star being… (drumrolls please) the WHITE coat. If you’re getting it in a wrap-cut-design then you’ll be smoking hot, nailing 2 massive trends with one choice. If being wrapped like a sandwich is not your thing, white coats look great in all cuts and styles: – trench, oversized blazer (long collar, V-cut, one button), V-shaped coat, fur coat, suede white coat, short, medium or long, fitted or…

The Oversized BLAZER: Is There A Right Way To Wear It?

Apparently everything these days is about size. The bigger the better. Question mark. When it comes to fashion it seems more yes than no, with women’s looks borrowing pretty much all they can from menswear, with slouchy oversized silhouettes, 80s cuts and big bold frumpy coats, jackets and blazers. Blame it on the cycle of fashion, on women’s full plate with constantly being too polished or dressing too fitted, whatever the reason, the outcome is great. And while there’s nothing new and groundbreaking about a blazer, be it fitted, oversized, slouchy, or structured, talking about the blazer look and wearing one is still considered a trendy thing. In a very classic chic sort of way. Oversized or boyfriend blazers have been hot for decades. Hello, the 80s, remember, with a quick relapse in the late 90s and 00s, when fitted was the only size everyone was…

2014 Fall Trend: FEATHERS!

If you didn’t know that birds of a feather, er… dress together, well now you do. The saying (sans les feathers) is so true for me and my birdy friends it’s scary. We go shopping together and more often than not end up buying the same clothes, each of us refusing to make a compromise will lie to herself that we’ll be careful as to not wear them at the same time when we’re together. We never do. That is, we never plan in advance to avoid the copycat sartorial predicament, so we do sometimes end up looking like slightly schitzy overly fashioned sisters. And the moment we start talking in syncron, that’s when it all goes down south. At this point we’ve learned that creating confusion kills boredom so we just say, at the same time: ”It’s been 2 weeks since the doctor separated…

Is It Really OK To Wear LEGGINGS As Pants?

If you’re gonna ask our male beloved friends, you’ll probably get a ‘Hell yeah!’ answer before you finish your question. I did. Just asked my husband. But since dressing and looking good or bad for them is NOT something we live for, nor strive to achieve… let’s leave the leggings as pants fantasy for them right where it’s at. In their fantasy world. Or it is too late? Have leggings become the new pants out there? Er… NO. Leggings are not pants, and if you’re wearing them as such, you’re pretty much asking for it, as somebody put it. Not that there’s anything wrong with that, but I just so happen to think that very few leggings styles and even fewer leggings looks can honestly pass for a good #ootd or even chic/cool outfits. When in God’s name anyway did these gym pants cross the work-out attire boundary?…

What Dresses To Wear In Autumn?

No matter how cold or hot it is, DRESSES are always a great idea. Easy to style, to dress up or down, to layer with great jackets in the cold season, to jazz them up with fabulous shoes, or make them casual and chic with comfortable soles. When it comes to dresses all is possible in terms of looks and outfits. I also happen to think a lot of the dresses we used to wear in summer can work in the cold season, especially autumn. Chiffon dresses, maxi dresses with long sleeves, jersey dresses, shirt dresses and so on. The key to making them look season appropriate is to wear them with autumn shoes: boots (ankle, motorcycle, combat, over-the-knee, tube, high, heeled, flat, wedges) and a great jacket on top: parkas, coats, leather or denim, faux-fur, ponchos. Scarves & beanies are great pieces for extra autumn…
