After what was supposed to be a lazy weekend, another working week kicks in, and this only means, more stress at the office, crispy cold mornings, long days and the ever present question: “What to wear to work today.” It’s autumn, so this means 2 things: coats & layers. No cold season will ever be complete without the Coat Trend talk. Ever. And it seems to me, no other season has been so hooked up and crazy packed with coats, as the 2013 – 2014 Autumn & Winter. All is in, and fashion took a seat back to style. There is no coat design to // READ MORE…

Never thought I’d say this but I’m pretty ready to trade in my mini skirt hems for longer ones, like over-the-knees, half-calves ones. Am I really getting that old? Or am I just a fashion victim? Unhappy with either possibilities, but forced to pick one, I’m gonna go with the latter, just cause my spirit hasn’t aged a day since I was 20. Fashion has this power over me to just throw out the window my delusional self assertion of being a mature consistent coherent woman. While in life I try to keep myself maniac-free, inhibiting my getting-bored-too-soon impulses (or my ADD), when it comes to // READ MORE…

street-style-men-boots-2

Boys… it’s been a long time since we’ve talked about you. Here, that is. :) When it comes to 2013 – 2014 Autumn & Winter there are a few things men have got to do, fashion wise: boots, coats & layers. Basically nothing’s new and it’s no rocket science that in the cold season human nature requires you to wear thicker clothes such as the ones above. Yet… it’s not what you wear, but HOW you wear it that counts. All men are fashion wise somewhere in between a business-casual-cool style. What this season does though, is challenge men to be edgier, to experiment more // READ MORE…

“Oh my God!” cried the pretty little fashionista. “What’s wrong?” someone replied. “Something’s wrong with my vision. I see dots. Dots everywhere. Spots and dots all over the place.” she said while rubbing her eyes. “Oh…” the by-stander so humbly and politely smiled while reassuring her. “It’s not you. It’s fashion. You’re not seeing dots. They exist. It’s all an explosion, going on for the past decades, but it used to be quite big this summer. As I see it (and you obviously) it seems to never go away. Not even in winter. Polka Dots. You gotta love them, right?” The one print everyone loves, // READ MORE…

skinny-jeans-style

Never has one clothing item suffered so much reinvention as the denim, and never has one jeans style had a bigger comeback than the skinny jeans. Massive in all the decades, minus those 90s, they seemed to be a thing of that kitsch past that no one wanted to even remember. Thank God we all came to our senses. If Marilyn Monroe loved her ankle slim pants and Audrey Hepburn’s most iconic look remains the skinny pants with ballet pumps… I think it’s safe to say the skinnies were bound to make their comeback and world domination. Those punk & rocknroll kids that are now // READ MORE…

baseball-hat-look (2)

OK, I am officially declaring the Boyfriend Trend as the biggest trend of 2012 – 2013. And by boyfriends I don’t mean the hunky lucky bastards in our lives, but their clothes. Ah… what would we do and be (fashion wise) without them? Pardon my shallowness  on this one, but we’re talking fashion here, not rocket science. Although in some cases the sartorial side in our lives is crucial. OK. In most cases, if not all. So following on Coco Chanel’s steps we find ourselves borrowing sweaters, T-shirts, sweatshirts, blazers, even trousers from our men’s wardrobes, translating all these otherwise lifeless pieces into style must-haves, // READ MORE…

Behold. The gurus of fashion & hairstyles have officially declared braids the biggest hair trend for 2013 Fall. And probably 2014 Winter, Spring & Summer. Surprised? Well… not really to be honest, because if you ask me, braided hairstyles have never quite left the spotlight. And I wonder why? Could it be because it’s such an effortless way to swing between hairstyles and looks? Or are we again dipping into the childhood memories we still, can’t let go of? So what if we’re in our 20s, 30s or even 40s, who says we can’t still braid the shit out of our hair in the most // READ MORE…

leather-sweatpants-trend

Whoever said size does not matter, clearly had no idea what they were saying. Fashion wise. Let’s keep this conversation unsoiled. For the past year everyone seems to have a slight obsession towards going up a few sizes, hence the oversized coats, sweaters, and boyfriend borrowed looks. Have we just had enough of the bombshell looks, that we now couldn’t care less if we come across as stylish hobos or oversexed pop stars? Even the golden rule of style – balance – is every now and then ditched in favor of comfy meets quirkiness (the rule – if your bottoms are tight, your top has // READ MORE…

pink-coat-autumn-trend

Glitter, sparkles and anything pink comes with the territory of being a girl, right? You don’t even need to be one of those ladies with a passion for fashion, cause you’re still guilty as charged for the pink crush, from back in your childhood days, when draping yourself in pink & glitter was the best thing ever. So if fashion trends get inspired from all sorts of weird things, why not speculate on women’s inherent girly personas, right? That’s what I thought. Besides, in this fashion trend amalgam of all grunge punk black rocknroll stuff, a bit of unicorn love was bound to happen. Actually // READ MORE…

wedges-rachel-bilson

And I don’t mean sneakers or sandals. I’m talking ankle boot type wedges and variations on this style. It is autumn after all. The reason behind this post is only my current obsession with simple black wedge ankle boots. Not too high (I’m already too tall anyway) yet still baring the same leg elongation effect. You know what I mean. It’s that look – black tights, black wedges (short ankle boots or tight around the ankles) and short dresses, skirts or shorts. It can even work with skinny black jeans. Long-leg-wise? It don’t get no better, let me tell you this. Now, with the research for // READ MORE…
