street-style-stetement-sweaters

A quick glance over any online fashion mag, or retail chain will only confirm the latter. Not once has there been so much diversity in fashion as it is for the past 1 or 2 years. This applies for sweaters as for anything else actually. Sure, some looks make it to the Trend Reports but we mostly witness a case of “I wanna have it all, and I will.” So, if every single item you can think of is in, what’s the outcome? We might just be witnessing the victory of style over price tag and fashion per se.  Just think about it, in terms // READ MORE…

Aaaand it’s official. The world has gone mad, and I with it. Once upon a time mixing sporty with smart was by far the worst thing a true fashionista could do. Fashion faux-pas doesn’t begin to cover it. Hell, you didn’t even need to be a fashion savvy to not mix your sneakers with your skirts or… your sweatpants with your heels. WTF? Right? Which brings me to today’s post: SWEATPANTS & HEELS. Is this look a trend or more of a fad? How did we get here? I swear we live in a time of style anarchy. All rules are broken, all faux pas // READ MORE…

animal-print-street-style-trousers

Or… ‘We’re All In The Jungle’. Or… ‘Animal Print Chic.’ Or… ‘The Animal Instinct’. You get it. It’s the ANIMAL PRINT Trend again making a hot mess out of our 2013 – 2014 fall/winter sartorial choices. Whether you like it or not, is not even important (sorry girls), what matters is the daunting question: has animal print fashion ever been out of style? It seems to me as if it’s that one thing some people with a penchant for quirkiness and extravagance in clothes adore to wear, while for some it will always be a no-no. So OK the question after all may be, which // READ MORE…

With fashion, one day it’s all black and grungy and then BAM! it does a 180 on you, and just when you got the hang of some crazy thing, you find yourself ditching it for its opposite. The WHITE Trend for 2013 – 2014 Fall/Winter is huge. At least that’s what designers want, and can we blame them? I mean there’s only so much black you can wear (don’t know about that). Let’s not get hasty though and assume that with this white trend comes just pure clean looks. While that may be partially true, wearing white this fall and winter is somehow still part // READ MORE…

mini-leather-skirt-trend

What happens when you take two massive trends like Leather & Black and you mix them? You end up, again, on the grunge road, with infinite trends awaiting to be nailed. So don’t be surprised if 2013 – 2014 autumn & winter will give us leather everything in the most adored non color of all times. Black. The leather jackets we’ve done. Still can’t get enough of. Same goes for leather trousers. Which leaves leather tops (a future post) and… LEATHER SKIRTS. They’ve been having their moment for a while now, with bloggers and fashionistats wearing them like crazy in summer, but the trend is // READ MORE…

Well, I don’t know about that, but with the band T-shirts Trend being so HUGE, we sure come across as obsessed fans. OK, so we established the non-per se factor of the groupie urban definition, but why do we persist in this misleading direction? For sartorial purposes. D’ohhh. The music band T-shirts Trend was massive in the 90’s (OMG, this 90s comeback is starting to sound redundant), and with the decade’s fashion revival still hot, no wonder we’re channeling those Seattle grunge fans with a penchant for Nirvana rather than style. So this trend was born a while ago, but why is it crawling back // READ MORE…

Beige, black, fitted, loose, crumpled or not, over time the Trench Coat has been all the above and so much more, while remaining a staple. With autumn settling in and the weather turning to its inconsistencies: warm, cold, windy, cloudy, rainy and sunshine (sometimes all in one day), we’re left in a tiny fashion predicament: What To Wear? And look good? The Trench Coat. D’ohh. Literally the best fashion invention and mixture of trendy & comfy – the gabardine Audrey Hepburn’ish piece will forever be our go-to transition coat. And the best part about it is that, while designers such as Burberry have given us // READ MORE…

The biggest hairstyle of all times – the undercut – makes all men look hot as hell. The UNDERCUT seems to be the one haircut and men hairstyle that’s been going on for quite sometime, reminiscent of those 1940’s dapper looks. What is the UNDERCUT? “I’d like to shave my head, but still have long hair please.” No problem. In a nutshell it’s : shaved on the sides and long in the front hairstyle. Say what you will about it, truth is, it’s got so many options, from super edgy to toned down, from extravagant to office appropriate, it’s so versatile and flattering on most face shapes – // READ MORE…

When Pucci showed their 2013/2014 Fall Winter collection, packed with hot heeled thigh high boots I was head over heels (and thigh) with this boot trend. But I can’t help and wonder if, ladies can we pull off the thigh high look on a daily basis? And if so, is there a limit (besides the over-the-knee) to this sometimes-too-sexy borderline BDSM look? First thing’s first though, when it comes to 2013 Boots Trend the high boots are getting a whole lot of attention (next to the motorcycle, cut-out boots, kitten heels, chunky heels, wedges, ankle boots, printed boots etc.), yet this sexed up look is // READ MORE…

I guess Mark Ronson, Queen & Syd Barrett saw the Bike Trend coming long before it became a fashion craze among all fashionistas & bloggers. What they didn’t know though is that not only cool looking blokes or Tom-boy ladies can ride the oldest, healthiest and most environmental friendly means of transportation. Hell no. Lately every high class, rich, once-spoiled socialite or polished manager is seen ditching their BMWs or Mercedes for a ride in the saddle. Now I wonder why? Is it really because a bike can get you to your destination so much faster while enjoying a great weather and workout, or is it because // READ MORE…
