Before we completely dive into 2018 autumn fashions and bundling-up outfits I’m gonna give one last call for one of summer’s biggest trends: buttons! They’ve been on my mind and in my outfits quite a lot this past few months, and given their sartorial ubiquity and compatibility with fall seasons… I think this talk is quite appropriate in fact.

Not too long ago I was stating how 2018 summer was all about the luxe laid back style, with a dash of retro celebration – and buttons fall right into this fab fashion pic. Everything with buttons was a hit. And suddenly everything needed buttons, either real or mock. They were decorating dresses, skirts, shirts, sleeves, backs, shirts, bags…

The questions is: why do we have to limit this trend to summer?

Can we do the button trend in autumn 2018?

With the 80s revival coming up so strong I would guess it’s all about neon and zippers, but I also like to think the world of fashion is a free one so if you’re into buttons… button them up, what can I say.

A dash of retro and chicness will always look amazing, so damn the trends if they don’t agree.

How to wear buttons in autumn 2018?

For summer they looked amazing in dark brown colours, on nude beige dresses, and white linen shirts. For 2018 autumn try them on blazers, high waisted pants, tops’ sleeves. In fact, double breasted blazers are such a 2018 autumn thing already… so if that’s not a buttons hint I don’t know what is.

Wear button mini cardigans paired with plaid skirts and ankle boots.

Rock double breasted trench-coats. Mock button sleeves on your fave sweaters.

But somehow autumn *still* feels miles away…

When it comes to polka dots outfits I’m what you call a converted fashion lover. I did not like them one bit. But that was a long time ago, when the reason behind my dislike was that they looked too girlish and too retro, none of which I was a fan of. Fast forward a few years, and here I am sitting in front of a laptop, dressed in a black and white polka dot wrap dress, that I love beyond words.

So… what is up with polka dots trend in 2018? Are they any different from 2 years ago, or even from way back when I was not a huge fan of them? While the poor suckers have stayed the same (big, small, red, white, black, blue, printed on dresses, tops, shorts, pants of any and all colours)… the way we wear them and style this trend is a bit different these days. Hence my change of heart perhaps.

Polka dots are a bit more polished in 2018, and look amazing in black or white. Or they’re very funky in electric blue or bright pink. Then they can be sexy as hell with a dash of retro when in red. I mean… they’re literally giving me life. From bold polka dots tops paired with jeans, to the classic black dress with white polka dots that looks amazing whether you’re out on a date or shopping on a summer day… I am sold on this trend.

Did I say I love polka dots?

How to wear polka dots in 2018?

One word: effortless. Dom’t try so much. Wear that polka dot top with jeans and a pair of slides. Rock that polka dot dress with non-statement shoes and a messy bun. It’s like that you know. Actually it’s a million ways and it all depends on personal style, but personally I do like 5 very specific polka dot looks, that tbh are all over Instagram these days, surrounded by either flowers, city scapes, beaches, drinks… cool slides, and straw bags.

Who can blame people you know. Any polka dot outfit courtesy of 2018 looks kinda bomb in pics. And IRL of course, but considering the title and all…

1.Black and white polka dots outfits.

Did anyone say sophisticated and chic to the next level?! This is it. Whether it’s a classic polka dot dress (wrap midi or mini styles look best), or a cool top, or a pair off slides… this particular polka dot style is the classic one. It’s retro, it’s timeless, it’s classy, and very very very chic.

Best tip: for extra oomph wear red lips and black sunglasses.

2. White and black polka dot looks.

It’s basically the same thing only it’s not. It’s the other way around than the above and it’s a very summery look. Very feminine, dainty, romantic and looks incredible with layered dainty necklaces and denim.

3. Retro chic polka dots.

They’re having a moment y’all. In palazzo pants, or big sleeve tops, or maxi dresses, this version of polka dots is a more trendy style with a big bold dash of retro vibe. They’re white, blue, yellow, brown, and usually all over some retro tops, or flirty summer dress worn with boots.

4. Blue polka dots.

My mom once told me that blue, actually navy, is one of the most elegant colours ever. Huh! Go figure. And i agree. I mean just look at the blue polka dot thing and you’ll see what I’m saying. Polka dots are more laid back girly, not-so-serious, not-evening appropriate so to say. Well… do them in blue, and shades of blue and think agin. This style look very elegant in a very cool way. No efforts, just simple and pretty.

5. Red polka dots.

Shut the front door. This is my #1 favourite and it’s also one of instagram’s most shared and coveted looks. It just looks so good. It’s retro hot, modern, feminine, chic, summer’ish. The best look is a red polka dot mini wrap dress for the weekend/beach.

What do you think? Yes or no? Which one’s your fave?

It feels like it was only last Tuesday that we were wearing what we were saying: professing our weekend love, our hate for Mondays, our lust for coffee and so on. I mean how many ‘I need coffee’ t-shirts can one person wear? It was fun for a while. Up until we were all looking *and saying the same things. Like everything about us and around us became a t-shirt meme. Fast forward a few years… and we’re in the same freaking boat. Only cooler and more expensive this time. And more pretentious. Slightly more sophisticated too. I am of course talking about the designer logo trend mania that’s splashed and splattered everywhere these days.

Especially on the backs of the rich and famous. Alongside the instafamous.

Every cool and fashion relevant soul is wearing some sort of designer logo, whether it’s that Gucci t-shirt, or the Fila, Puma, Yeezy sportswear, or some D&G belt, some Supreme socks, some Balenciaga sneakers… you get it. We’re walking billboards for designers these days, and we seem to be loving it, as we pile up on designer logo stuff, and keep buying them from either online fashion hubs like SSENSE, or from your classic high street stores.

Are we loving it so much though that we have to wear it? Or are we slightly snobbish? Or do we genuinely happen to like some items which happen to have some very famous logos on them.

It was only yesterday that it was un-cool to show off and brag about stuff, right? Now we’re screaming for attention in our big bold Versace logo t-shirts, Levis jeans, and D&G belts. Isn’t it too much?

Okay… okay… I get it, too many questions.

Wearing designer LOGOS in 2018

The truth is… we’re currently at the dawn of minimalism so this may just be a last cry from fashion opulence for a while, OR this may be just the amount of fashion statement we need to spice up our boring, I mean minimalist outfits.

Think about it: a classic all black outfit is anything but boring with a display of the new Balenciaga logo popping up somewhere in your minimalist look. It keeps the whole thing still so chic and fashionably quiet… but it adds… character, and a tad of sartorial smirk if you will for both the fashion savvy and the ignoramuses.

 

If quiet ain’t your shtick… then do a full on Rihanna and drape yourself in designer logos just for the fun of it, or for the love of those clothes AND their logos. Think street style at Fashion Week: louder, bolder, more colourful and not shy from a total designer show-off.

Or… you might just be a simple mortal who occasionally and casually works out… or just chills in gym clothes. Then, my friend… whether you like it or not you will be doing the designer logo trend, because no gym clothes and athleisure is free of logos these days. Personally I don’t mind it, in fact I think it has a bit of 80s nostalgia to it.

Is there an age limit to this designer logo trend mania?

Helllllll no. (*sits down to actually think about it.)

*thinks about it.

Hell no.

However, since age usually comes with some boring baggage like jobs, responsibilities, social conduct, et all… I think the designer logo trend is totally do-able if kept simple and classic. Just do the damn D&G belt without the 2,345 other logos. Wear a Dior logo blazer for work or dinner and you’ll still be killing it in both career as well and fashion.

If you’re slowly pushing 100, but you looooooove fashion and clothes and colours and prints and trends and styles and fads and hats and accessories and everything in between all these… and you HAVE TO WEAR them all at once, or else… then just do it what can I say. #nike

Nonetheless, the more I pile up on years the more I feel I’m leaning towards less is more in fashion. I love a classic minimal style these days, or a classic jeans look, or a summer classic wrap dress. Sure I might style it edgier one day, sporty, chic, elegant, or casual the next… but you get it.

*

Therefore the designer logo trend pour moi… is a total yes as a one or two statement pieces, as gym wear, and on some days as a fashion victim’s logo dream. #stillindecisiveaf #facepalm

Your turn now.

Bye.

Listen, when it comes to any makeup trend I’m down for it: trying it at least if not wearing it. TBH beauty trends are the easiest and least commitment demanding of all trends. It’s just you and your mirror, AND if it looks good you’ll take it out. While I tend to use the same makeup look, I do play around with details and subtleties and I loooove experimenting with lipsticks especially. Here’s the thing: I’ve been doing blurred lips forever, blindly unaware it’s actually a makeup trend this year. Sure, I also do lined lips, sometimes overlined lips, sometimes nude, red, of nothing at all depending on my mood. But my go-to lipstick look for the past two years has been blurred lipstick.

Why blurred lips is a makeup trend and not just a look?

I have a new theory lately – that a part of fashion is ridding itself of all the extras, hence the rise of minimalism, or the fuss-free straw bags trend, the disappearance of chunky jewellery and so on. So in this new world of naked beauty – blurred lips were just a matter of time.

They’re low maintenance, easier to apply than lined perfect pouts, and mirror 100% designers beauty vision for SS2018. YES, most designers sent models down the runway in intentionally faded lips, blurry, with darkened centres and faded edges.

THIS is easily translated in less dramatic real life situations as lipsticks so blotted until they look naturally soft, like a hazy stain, like a just bitten effect.

Personally I think it’s a true consequence and response to all those perfectly done instgram makeup trends, it’s like a pretty tiny beauty revolution to just go back to basics and apply lipstick with your fingers, to blot it, to not give a damn about how perfect it looks, but rather to wear it because you feel like it. That’s why I think it’s not just a look, but in the bigger scheme of fashion and beauty things it’s a trend and perhaps a staple that came back to life.

I mean French women use this technique all the time, my mom uses it, off duty models use it. It’s easy and quick and it looks natural.

How to do blurred lips?

Any lipstick colour works, but as a first timer try out with something more natural first so that the edges of your lips blend more easily with the lipstick itself.

  1. apply lipstick trying to follow your natural lip shape
  2. blott
  3. apply again and then smudge it out with your finger
  4. blott again
  5. tap the lipstick on your lips trying to follow your natural lip line, but don’t line it per se

This is what I do, more or less. Less if the lipstick is more natural and following these 5 steps-ish if I’m going for stronger colours.

It’s a great makeup trick for those who have less defined lips edges (*raises hand*) because you save time correcting or defining edges, by simply blurring them. If you have well defined natural lips then forget the edges and blot and blur as you feel like it.

So how about this makeup trend: do you guys do it, do you like it?

TBH for me it began as a beauty gimmick to be able to continue wearing and re-applying lipstick throughout the entire day without waisting more than 30 seconds. I used to line my lips, wear the same colour lipstick, they’d look amazing, but once I went through a coffee and a sandwich, an apple and a banana the perfection was gone. So I’d start the 5 minutes ritual of lipstick again. #notgood Hence the blurred lips I started doing.

Sometimes the best things in life come in small sizes. Of course as a maximalist I’ve never found that to be true. I mean I’ll always get the larger coke and bigger pizza, the big house, the big necklace… the big party, the large ego… you get it. Yet… when it comes to 2018 latest fad, I am quite a small size lover. Of shades, people. Of shades.  From my recent post about small sunglasses, and my insta stories about them – people are not big fans. So… alone in my small sunglasses predicament I was actually wondering where in the world can I, or anyone who loves them too, could buy them.

You know them: those smaller than an asshole’s brain sunglasses, in black, blue, red, orange that casually stat the top of your nose, an match some sassy bored attitude, a la Kendall Jenner & co par example.

Without further ado here are the bestest small sunglasses ever. I mean… I love them, and I just think the Topshop ones and the Adam Seldam ones are beyond insane.

If there’s one thing AW18 collections had – that’s a busy beautiful head. From Prada, to Gucci, to Marc Jacobs and Dolce and Gabbana fashion is giving us, yet again a free pass to wearing scarves a billion ways, from our long necks, and tiny wrists… to our heads, and hairstyles. Hence the headscarf trend of 2018 spring!

First time in my life I ever consciously acknowledged a headscarf was probably when I was around 6 or so and I noticed my grandma always always wore one. She said that’s how the fashion was back in the day, and that’s how she was used to it. Plus she gave 0 fucks about her hairstyle. Of course she wore it in that Queen Elizabeth style, 50s, retro, tied either under the chin, or at the back of her head. No wild ponytail nor cool sunglasses.

These days all is in. Even Khaleesi dragons a la Gucci, or MacQueen face glam masks. So, at this point Dolce & Gabbana’s vision of a headscarf for the past 5 years or so seems pretty cool and decent.

Headscarves are both a throwback fashion moment as well as a culture thing, like in my grandma’s case, like in other nations or religions.

But the queens of headscarves to me remain: all the black ladies, Eva Mendes, and my grandma. So in case you have no idea on how to wear a head-scarf just peak into this bowl of inspiration.

Why would you wear a headscarf?

  • dirty hair
  • bad haircut
  • bad hair day
  • 0 fucks about the hair situation

OR you could actually love how it looks on you and thus it becomes a little style statement that brings a whole look together, or that turns an otherwise boring outfit into a more vibrant and chic one.

How to wear a headscarf in 2018?

Maybe there’re not a million or billion ways to wear a headscarf, nonetheless there are a few.

THE BUN – tie a scarf around your sleek or messy hair-bun and get an instant summer chic style. Pair this look with some bold earrings, like golden hoops and a pair of sunglasses. You can wear a maxi dress, an off the shoulders top with jeans, or even a blazer and a more classic outfit.

THE LOW PONYTAIL: tie a scarf around your low loose ponytail, and leave the ends out. This is a very French chic look that goes best with a plaid blazer, a spaghetti strap dress, a pair of culottes and birkinstocks.

THE HIGH MESSY PONYTAIL: did anyone call me? This is perfect for when you’re hair’s all acting up, OR you just don’t know what to do with it anymore and you and up wearing it in a high ponytail #storyofmylife, but you also feel kinda meh and basic for not doing more, so… ta-daa the head-scarf. It’s such a summer vibe effortless and very chic style gimmick. Tie a colourful scarf around you ponytail and leave the ends loose. It’s free and careless and looks amazing with anything.

THE DOLCE & GABBANA HEADSCARF: Bella Italia and Sicily and pasta and Monica Bellucci and Bianca Balti, and loud grandmas and cool boys on scooters. A million earrings, a lace dress, a black summer dress, a pair of sunglasses – this is the D&G look. Tie the scarf around your head, like a head-band, leaving the back open.

THE 50s STYLE: aka my grandma all the way. Tie the scarf either under your chin or at the back of your head. Still… you might not wanna look like a 70 year old woman so take the retro vibe with a dash of 2018, and use Queen Elizabeth’s scarves as inspiration. #wacththecrown Wear bold lips, cool sunglasses, a trench coat, popped collars, gloves, high heels, a mix of today and old Hollywood style.

THE FULL ON LOOK: I mean… if you have a gorgeous face, hide that hair and flaunt those features. Hello Eva Mendes, and Zendaya, or Solange. Confident, sexy women are wearing headscarves everywhere, red carpet included. It is such a powerful look, I love it. Use a printed silk massive scarf, watch a ton of tutorials on how to tie it, rock some red lips and insane earrings and you are the queen!!!

Powersuits as powerdressig is a major trend in 2018. Sure, we’ve been dressing in powersuits in the 90s as well as 2000s, so what is changed?

Powersuits for 2018 embody everything: they’re sleek, but also slouchy, classic but so edgy, the blazer is massive, big shoulders, cinged at the waist, incredibly fashion forward in both cut as well as colour or print. However, the key lies in how we wear them, and the fact that a business look these days is also a fashion, social, and personal message.

The powersuit is 80s iconic, and if we’re to quickly pinpoint to the latest trends of 2018 fall fashion week, both the 80s, as well as power-dressing aka powersuits stand out. Sure, that’s for fall next year, but that don’t mean we can’t start practicing. In fact we’ve been unconsciously doing 80s for the past year: dressing, movies, music. So why stop now?

Personally I kinda like all the kitsch and the drama of late 80s, and don’t get me started on broad shoulders, cinged waists, big earrings, slouchy boots, and bold lips. 80s are so iconic for women’s rights, and the rise of women in business which of course led to power-dressing. It was an awakening decade socially, politically, and of course fashion wise, cause nothing ever happens in the world without it being reflected in fashion. Hence today’s #metoo movements and the rise yet again of 80s and 80s trends in 2018 fashion week, alongside minimal dressing, or men inspired looks and styles, like men designer shirts or suits.

While all is *still* in, there are a few styles of powersuits for 2018 that stand out and make a strong case for their trendiness.

1.PASTEL POWERSUITS.

It’s like mixing coffee and milk, night and day, powerful and dainty. Baby blues, pinks, and mint greens or light yellows look amazing in either powersuits that’re more classic, or the more oversized, masculine styles.

2. CHECKS & PINSTRIPES

How to look like a million bucks, like you give no fucks, like you rule the mf world, like you ooze sophistication and strength mixed with extra coolness, like you’re the queen of 80s in 2018 fashion? Put on a check print powersuit, slightly oversized, big shoulders, cinge it at the waist and go!

OR, if you’re more of a pinstripe kinda gal… go for pinstripe powersuits paired with great shoes. Like sleek kitten heel boots in red, or white.

3. OVERSIZED POWERSUITS

It’s the key cut of the 2018, the more a blazer is massive, the more we’ll love it. Same stands for pants. Mix the big suit with a cool crop top, a lace bra-top, something very cheeky that just peaks from underneath, and have fun with belts.

If you fear it’ll swallow and spit your right out (the suit), chose Tom Ford or Versace 2018 spring styles: tight high waisted pants aka leggings paired with the best tailored blazers in the world. Long, big shoulders, strong cuts, cinged waists.

4. DOULBE BREASTED POWERSUITS.

It’s retro, masculine, sophisticated, empowering, it looks cool and feels effortless especially when paired with more glamorous pieces: massive earrings, bold lips, heels.

5. CINGED WAISTS. 

Uhm… hello, the 80s called, they want their belts back. And I ain’t giving them nothing back. I used to love love love this look in the movies or in old fashion catalogues, so I’m actually kinda thrilled it’s back and we can all start channeling our inner 80s goddess. No matter how big the powersuits, how old, how dated, once you belt it you killed it. In a good way.

6. COLOURED POWERSUITS.

Powersuits are a classic piece, so when you mix them (style, cut, print) with something more edgy or fashion forward it instantly lifts their fashion vibe to this new chic and sophisticated piece that although old, feels brand new. So if you wanna look super formal, professional but still put your fashion mark and statement in our outfit – pick a bold coloured classic cut suit. Red, blue, purples and yellows are huge this season as well as next.

TIPS and street style:

In 2018 you can wear the powersuits however you please, either as a very formal classic outfit, OR just have fun with it, and go for weird cut, funky prints and fab style combinations. Not to mention you can break it down and wear the pants and/or the blazer separately.

So what do you think: are you a fan of powersuits? Will you be wearing one this spring?

If you were to chose between the 3 most powerful and trendiest 2018 coats, which would you pick? I know, I know, it’s like choosing a fave kid #impossible, and quite frankly why should we chose anything, can’t we just have it all?

What fashion is doing to us these days, in plain 2018 fall fashion week, is cruel. She’s giving us a billion options, with a strong 80s vibe that was quite easy to guess as of this last fall, and more so strong come next season – and then she’s laughing her ass off.

You wanna know what’s hot next season so you can pick your fave items starting with the sales of this winter? Is there a winner trend? Can we keep on wearing whatever the hell we want regardless of the hottest picks of the month or whatever?

At the end of this fall season, after having paraded into all the coats that were humanly possible, can you bible swear you have a single fave?

Somebody died and made me the God of coats today, and so courtesy of my quite inflated ego right now and a bit of fashion know-how I am proclaiming the 3 coats that have stood the test of fashion + time + trendy this fall season. Everyone was wearing one, or all of them, and if not, they probably secretly thought about it.

THE TEDDY coat | THE PLAID coat | THE ROBE coat

Which one floats your boat more? Which will still be hot come next fall?

1. THE TEDDY Coat. 

It’s been around for almost 2 years, ever since I first bought mine fresh like a damn avocado. Nobody close in sight and beyond had one, and to this day I’m proud to say I’m still wearing it and still go back to it when it’s too cold, or when I have boring outfit on, cause the teddy shaggy fabric makes it look very punk cool somehow.

Instagramers love their teddys in all shades of nude and brown, with a slight rise in blue, red and maybe other shades, which as cool as they look, didn’t particularly stick as much.

It’s a great coat for winter, for a more laid back cool style, weekend casual, even more posh, but not sleek. It’s snuggly, it’s trendy, but I don’t think it’ll make it as big next season.

We’ll see.

2. THE PLAID Coat.

Y’all this is like the leather jacket of spring or something. EVERY. SINGLE. HUMAN. has one. Except for me. #facepalm Don’t worry, it was just over the weekend that I literally stumbled upon the biggest coats sale in Koton… which I’m planning to financially and fashion’ally murder tomorrow.

Plaid looks good on anyone, it flatters the face, the features, and makes us all look French chic.

The styles everyone’s going for are pretty normcore, like midi length, slouchy shoulders, big pockets… geek cool inspired.

Checks will still be in next season, that’s a fact, and these coats have a good life ahead of them, especially if you go for a more 80s cut.

Get the look:

3. THE ROBE coat.

This motherfucker can be as cool, as geek, as posh and sleek, or sophisticated as you want it to be. The robe is that coat that’s inspired by a classic bath robe, slightly oversized, no buttons, just a belt carelessly tied around your waist, no flatter body shape, slouchy shoulders. They sound horrible but are actually the best comeback of the 80s done in the most sophisticated and free way possible.

While I’m such a teddy girl, I pick these for a colder 2018 spring and and even colder 2018 fall season.

Tres instersante, no? So which one’s your fave coat style?

Are sweats the new jeans? Are they so trendy and versatile we can literally trade any outfit for a sweats outfits and pull it off anywhere, and everywhere? Regardless of age, season, or personal style? Hmmmm. People… I am inclined to say YES to all the above, except maybe office days. Yeah. Those don’t work well with a sweats outfits no matter how chic, cool, luxe, athletic sophisticated it may all look. Unless of course you’re working in some creative job, or you’re wearing Gucci. Then you can fuck the ignoramuses and work that hobo-chic-and-fit style.

Anyway… sweats outfits wise it’s all crystal clear to me: they have become such a casual staple, courtesy of those athleisure trends, and of the 80s comeback that it’s the go-to-outfit for 1) running errands, 2) going shopping, 3) brunch, or 4) any cool casual style you wanna pull off one day. Even if you’re not staying home or just going to the gym.

The sweats look has been happening for a while, but I always thought it might be just a fad you know. Like those people who get gym memberships but only show up a few times a month, until they just slack on it. #didyousaysomethingtome

But no. Sweats outfits are here to stay. More so the sweats styles have evolved so much, the way we chose to wear them, where we chose to wear them seem to multiply literally by the minute. Each blogger, celebrity, peasant, stand-by-er, lover of style, hater of sports – they each have a cool new way to wear their sweats, and when all of these come together it’s really a great walking sweats moodboard out there.

So my answer to the Q above is full on yes.

However… HOW do we actually wear sweats outfits to look cool and chic like a casually rich person who has fab style but can’t be bothered on a lazy Saturday?

Here’s a 6 ways guide to pulling off sweats outfits anywhere.

1. Pick a great sweats set.

After all, it’ll be la piece de resistance in your look so you might as well invest in it, not financially speaking, just effort wise.

If you’re new to the game got for classic styles like black adidas, or grey soft sweats sets. Keep it simple, and very easy to style by itself or/and with a coat or a leather jacket.

If you love the soft-luxe but laid back styles pick a nude/taupe/brown shade sweats set. Pair it with some great nude or white sneakers, lipstick, and some dainty gold jewellery.

2. Oversized versus fitted.

The answer lies in between somewhere. You want it to follow your body, but you’re not looking for super fitted styles. You can of course go either way… but then make sure you do the oversized big so that it makes a statement, and the fitted super gym-style-outside-the-gym.

I’m sure you’ve seen loads of Instagram pics of both situations so just pick one that rocks your boat more and try to emulate it. See how it feels.

Or mix it and match it. Do fitted sweats and oversized sweatshirt, or t-shirt, and the other way around.

3. Keep it sporty and athletic casual.

That’s to say heels and sweats outfits are kinda out. Except of course if you’re Kim Kardashian, then you wear oversized sweats with heeled booties.

So… stick to sneakers, birkenstocks, slippers, and if you want heels do the ankle boots with a stiletto heel. Sandals and heeled pumps worn with sweat-pants are so 2010.

4. Go high-fashion/super-cool.

This is the street style of Fashion Weeks so fabulously done by fashion editors, bloggers and celebrities. It’s sweats outfits mixed with high fashion pieces, designer bags, super statement coats, beautiful shoes. The sweats are not those you lazy around the house in… they’re more of a nipped and tucked version of the classic sweats, more dressy, more 80s rather than 2018 chill.

5. Sweats for slobs with a chic style. #aroundthehouse

This is pretty much all of us at some point. What’s the key to taking the slob to hobo-chic level? Maybe a shower, clean hair, a pair of sunglasses if the face ain’t cooperating #meagain, clean sweats slightly more upgraded than pjs, great sneakers or slippers on, a tiny little jewellery that makes you feel pretty, a leather jacket on top.

6. Celebrity style.

This is the slob version of each of us being completely caught off guard when getting coffee, by the paparazzi. I know. Such a drag. The style is usually either a simple sweats set with a coat or jacket on top, or it can be cropped sweats (either the pants or the sweatshirt). Or you can do the sweatpants and a sports bra with a cool jacket on top.

General tips: you can even wear sweaters with sweatpants as a cool combo. And for an even more laid back vibe layer a longer t-shirt underneath a sweatshirt, and top it all off with a denim jacket, a bomber or a leather jacket.
