Mint green with black

We’ve seen many different green hues this spring/summer season, but there’s one different and unique green – the pastel mint green. Looking pastel and creamy, the mint green is definitely one of the most special one in the green palette.

While there is nothing new about pastels in spring, the mint green color during the spring 2021 runways felt fresh as ever. After several seasons filled with neon colors, the muted green was really a welcome sight. Mint, aquamarine, avocado, pistachio, moss or laurel – whichever name you choose, this fashion color are on trend this spring/summer.

To be honest, the mint green color is charming, looks comfortable and matches well with many different occasions. Here I have rounded up an outfit with it – the main color is black, with the green as secondary. A Zara oversized shacket jeans shirt, short black Calzedonia biker leggings with a black Zara top, Michael Kors shoes, an eye-catching glittering Bershka belly bag and black sunglasses.

Keep it casual with jogging pants

Due to the pandemic I hardly felt the switch from the winter to the spring, and especially in Vienna, the spring being so cold and short, we somehow skip it all-together and directly jump in the summer mood. That’s why, even though its May already, my wardrobe is still a mix of winter, spring and summer clothes.

Recently when in doubt what to put on, I tend to always choose jogging pants – mainly because it’s the easiest way to look good, feel comfortable and be on trend at the same time. And because I all into the sweet colors mood I have ones in mint, violet, and pink.

Today I matched my violet one from Pimkie with a white Bershka cropped top, one of my favorite Zara shirts that can be matched with almost everything, „I love you“ socks, multi cream Michael Kors Olympia trainers and a sweet white blue belt bag.

An easy way to look good wearing a long sleeves sweatshirt top and short Joggers

On those smooth days like Sundays you need just a casual look and don’t care mood. So, it might be safe to say joggers are my new favourite pants, not only long ones for the winter but also short ones for the summer. I’ve always been a denim girl, but recently joggers are winning me over. As soon as I laid eyes on these PULL&BEAR joggers and the sweatshirt top in a candy mint color, I knew I need them for this spring/summer season. I love the effortlessness and versatility this outfit has. Some joggers have a tendency to be more relaxed like for home, but these ones are more tight and that’s why they are just my style. (By the way the pants and sweatshirt carry the name „smooth(ie) days“).

I topped the whole outfit with a sweet Bershka bag also in a matching candy color, once more my favourite Alexander McQueen sneakers and a pair of white Nike socks, in a fashionway.

All-in-white

In the spring/summer season the all-white looks are always a good choice, no matter the occasion. The monochrome outfits work well for those of us who are not that fancy of colors. But not only for them – sometimes it’s ok to wear something different. The lighter tones work great in summer – the bright white feels airy and one does not need to worry what  to combine it with.

An all-in-white look works best when made out of various materials – they make the same tone have a very distinct appearance and their texture adds depth to the whole look.

In my look today I combine a long cotton Space shirt from Top Shop with an embroidered Zara white shirt and white skinny regular waist angle length H&M denim jeans. Matched together with cream-white Bershka summer shoes they create a great harmonic ensemble.

As you can see, we made the photo shooting of this outfit in Dubai – the fairy white combination in white works great for the conditions there and their somewhat stricter dress codes.

„Only do what your heart tells you“ – princess Diana

I believe that what we feel in our hearts appears in our eyes and the way we look. And as I feel that the spring adds new life and new beauty to all that is, I want to match the sweet blooming trees and flowers – white, pink, yellow, etc. So, I made a summer bouquet of intoxicating colors for my outfits and here is one of them – sweet pink tight fit pants with cut-outs and buckles from Bershka, a Zara white top and a Rinascimento jacket. I topped the outfit with my Michael Kors sunglasses and a small Kenzo bag, again with one of my favorite sneakers – Alexander McQueen.

Effortlessly cool with stretch skinny pants with trendy eye-catching side cutouts

With the coming of the spring/summer season I always feel like putting on something cool, light and eye-catching. So, I found one of my first hot pieces by Bershka – a pair of super chic soft, elastic and stretchy light beige pants with cutouts on the waistband. I matched them with a white Zara top and a short cream-white Just Cavalli jacket. My white Alexander McQueen sneakers with white Nike socks fitted great – they are so comfortable that I feel like I can walk a lot. The whole look I complemented with a cute transparent Alcott “Fashion victim” bag.

A cool look with jogging pants, not just for at home!

The jogging pants are at the moment the it-piece almost everywhere. That’s because they are good not only for at home or for sport, but also for a casual stroll, shopping, meeting with friends, etc. Even for the office, if your dress code there allows it, especially if well combined with a blazer.  

I decided to show you how I combined my joggers in a trendy outfit. Obviously the key piece in that look are those beige jogging pants from Bershka, matched with a crop top of the same material/color and topped with an oversized shirt from Zara. The crop tops really fit great to the sporty bottoms. The whole outfit gets complemented by a Just Cavalli beanie and Michael Kors sneakers in a fashionway.

White on white

The white on white look is one of my favorite trends. It is so versatile and stylish that you should not miss out on making one yourself. Here I made a winter one to inspire you.

I have a selection of jackets that I rotate throughout the winter and this simple white piece is one that I wear with great pleasure. I paired it with a nice classic white hoodie dress in almost same color. I like the oversized sweater and hoodie dress trend because you don’t have to think about matching the bottoms. But only white pieces are not enough to make your look great – don’t forget appropriate complementing accessories – a they always make you look outstanding.

I had to choose between my black and white Michael Kors boots and the all white Bershka ones, eventually going for the latter, combining them with funky Calzedonia tights. Personally, when making a one-color outfit I love to make it a little bit sexy in order to avoid being boring and here the tights make their best.

If you want shoes, bags, and jewelry to match with your white outfit, then I recommend going for lighter shades of classic hues. You can, for instance, try on white like me, grey, nude, silver and gold.

To complete the outfit I topped it with my black and white J‘ADIOR bag, in a fashionway.

One way to style an oversized sweater

Big and baggy sweaters are all the rage this season. I would like to show you one way to wear such a sweater without looking as if you are swallowed by it.

When choosing such sweaters we think that „the bigger and baggier, the better“, but actually that is wrong – if it’s too big we will start looking like a huge sack. If we want to be chick and trendy, we should make good size decisions and stick closer to our standard size for sweaters, because they are anyway purposely designed to be oversized.

As an oversized knit will inevitably make you look bigger than you actually are, the easiest way to solve that is to combine it with form-fitting or narrow bottoms – for instance skinny jeans, leggings, narrow pants, over-knee socks or over-the-knee boots. I personally prefer to wear it on its own without pants or leggings below it.

 And to avoid getting lost in this big clothes, we should show some skin – might that be a more generous décolletage or some bare leg. 

I combined my oversized black sweater with a pair of black over-the-knee boots. This I matched with my favourite NA-KD coat and some black accessories – a H&M cat hat and a black smiley Bershka bag, in a fashionway.

There’s no such thing as bad weather, only inappropriate clothing

Cold gray days, cold winter weather – how to make it not boring? Of course, by giving the opposite contrast – warm, colorful and thinking of the positive aspects. If it’s not cold, how could we wear our nice warm coats, hats and gloves and how could we enjoy the coming of the spring.

My outfit today is based around trendy colorful accessories – a warm pink-black Nike beanie and a pink small bag, which make the look interesting and give a colorful feeling, like in summer. Normally in winter we wear cream, black, gray, beige or otherwise neutral colors, but why not some bright ones in addition. They somehow convey these cute and happy feelings.

I matched those accessories with a mint colored teddy coat from Bershka, a white warm Calliope sweater, Pimkie jeans, Michael Kors sneakers, all in the same palette and my white H&M gloves. So, thus the cold is less cold and the gray day is less gray.
