Alongside the white tee, the leather jacket and those cutoffs you can’t let go off ever – it seems pretty safe to say the flared mini high-waisted skirt has become a fashion staple. Easily dressed up or down for any season (add your tights & boots in winter, top it off with a chic coat or slouchy warm jumper; or keep your legs bare and play with funky tops while on hot heels or gladiator sandals for summer) – this little skirt is probably the most faltering item in your closet regardless of your body type. It adds curves where there’re not, it hides them if it’s the case, // READ MORE…

Once upon a time us girls saved the white dress for The Day, you know. When we’d all meet that special one and had the best excuse to drape ourselves in white (read princess attire) for one whole day. Well thank God that misconception is gone – of saving the white looks for later and only for one day. Ha! Fast forward a few decades and the same girls need no more excuses to don white in plain day and can save their own asses, thank you. Hell, we can be queens for weeks in a row without having to plan our whole lives ahead, // READ MORE…

Well not 50, but enough to get us fashion confused over what sunglasses to choose. What styles are in, and how do you pick yours? Do you stick with it or not? And if you were to choose one, yes ONE type of sunglasses to wear for the rest of your life, which one would it be? When it comes to sunglasses I always feel as if Trends are a bit overrated and it’s not what’s IN one season as much as what looks good on you or what you love to wear. It can be a retro style (that no one else is doing) // READ MORE…

That Black & White is The Trend this season (click here for more) is no news flash to anyone, but wait… can we assume that Black (and black alone) is a Trend this season? Can we talk about a Summer in Black? I’m sure a summer in White for that matter is way more appropriate, hence the tons of white dresses and all the clothing attire in retail this season. Yet… black has never been so cool and OK to pull off in Summer, as it is in 2013. Well… perhaps apart from those 90’s grunge times, which, anyway are sort of back, and it // READ MORE…

When it comes to piling on jewellery or sacrificing an ear lob for that way too heavy & huge, but oh-so-fab statement earring – I’m all for it! Nothing is ever too much or hurts at all when it comes to fashion. High uncomfortable shoes? Yeah, I’ll take them. Too tight jeans or too loose to barely stay on, thank God for that cool belt? Yeah, I’ll take those too. Too many rings, necklaces & bracelets? There’s no such thing. For the past year or so, though, big rings have taken the backseat for those super thin small ones, which, guess what? Are so tiny // READ MORE…

Seems like Rihanna’s constant tummy display finally paid off and kicked in into one of the biggest trends of 2013. Yes dolls we gotta start working out BIG TIME to show off our mid riffs this season. And no… it’s not because of Riri’s mid riff obsession, although I suppose as a style icon she’s got a little input in there, but the Cropped Tops fad is quite an eclectic mix of circumstances that have led to it becoming a huge trend: a ’90’s reiteration of the cropped top, a retro take on the look (think Dolce & Gabbana), a classic vibe to it (think CHANEL tweed // READ MORE…

When it comes to dresses this season word of mouth is that YES, size (well actually hem length) does matter. One of the biggest Trends of 2013 have definitely been the MIDI Dresses, which is a great 60’s tribute with a tiny 90’s grunge reminiscing. For this season designers were pretty much exploring all sides a MIDI dress has to offer: classy, retro, edgy, sporty-chic, grunge, punk, rock’n roll, modern. I truly think there’s a design for any age, style, look & occasion with this MIDI hem, I mean clearly it is a trend that fits just about anyone and can be so fantastically mixed and // READ MORE…

‘‘If you’re going to San Francisco (read anywhere actually) be sure to wear some flowers”… on your clothes. In prints that is. YES the Floral Print Trend is back for 2013 Spring & Summer, but that is no big surprise, I really don’t think it was, or ever will be gone. As you can’t have fall without the dark hues and thick fabrics, you certainly can’t have a hot season without (1) Floral Prints, (2) Light & white colors and fabrics. What is different though in 2013 Spring is the retro feeling and Sicilian vibe I get from all those flower printed clothes & accessories. // READ MORE…

Back in the day draping yourself in denim was a fashion faux-pas, but as fashion is by definition a multitude of uncertainties (in a good way) and constant changes, today, Denim On Denim has turned into a massive trend. For the past two years I think this Duo Denim Trend is trying to make a way and settle in as that uber cool look any respectable fashionista can don without looking like a fashion victim. And since practice makes perfect, its hard work paid off, and Denim On Denim or Denim Head To Toe Trend are suppose to be huge in 2013 Spring and Summer. // READ MORE…

What’s that item that everyone’s got in their closet (tones of them actually) but which never makes the fashion cut as often as it should? Ding Ding! Yes you guessed it. Why it’s the T-shirt of course. For the past year or so plain T-shirts, like super basic white & black have been making quite the true understated statement. Courtesy of the Olsens perhaps? They’ve sure got a knack for pairing the most plain white t-shirt with some ripped jeans or posh trousers, making it look uber trendy, effortless and chic. Throw in some hot heels and damn girl you’ll be crossing the streets on // READ MORE…
