What a way to start April

The spring is just around the corner, but not quite yet and on the 1st of April in Vienna it is like winter. After the long winter I can’t wait to welcome the spring and to put the coats away, but even though the astronomical spring is already here, it’s still cold like a sweater time. Still, I have put away from my wardrobe my thick sweaters and left only couple of jackets, hoping those are the last days of the coat season.

One of my favorite looks at this time of the year is fake leather pants with a simple sweatshirt and a warm coat. For this outfit I chose white cream Zara fake leather leggings with a cool Pull & Bear sweatshirt and topped them with a matching Burberry rain-friendly Jacket, MONKI teddy coat, Bershka boots and a Zara cute bag, all in cream in a fashionway.

Checkerboard print

Since the start of the Corona pandemic in 2020 we have seen so many aspects of our lives change – our day to day life, our ability to see friends and family and how we work. And of course, the lockdowns have changed fashion from how we see it to how we buy it. Me for instance – I started favouring the more comfortable every day clothes and buying many things online thus missing the enjoyment of the the real shopping activity. Somehow life started looking like a black & white photo – lacking variety… Or like chess, where we have to do only certain moves. In that line of thought, the checkerboard print, which is very trendy and almost everywhere now, fits perfectly to that fashion and I like it. I found these checkerboard wide leg relaxed fit jeans and a fluffy Jacket by MONKI and matched them with cream Bershka boots and a small Pimki bag, in a fashionway.

Combat boots season

Combat boots are characterised by their particularly chunky soles and their striking profile. These wind and weatherproof shoes, which are also really comfortable, have their place especially in the transition period and on cold days. Although combat boots were originally designed for the battlefield a long time ago – we no longer go into battle with them, but we can certainly still engage in a fashionable contest.

I am showing you today a comfortable, practical and stylish feel-good outfit. I wear the black boots with trendy Bershka jogging pants and a short Zara black top. In addition a black faux leather Jacket and a small black MONKI bag.

Basically, the rough boots go with any imaginable outfit combinations. As always, it depends on your own taste and wardrobe. I particularly like outfits with joggers, mini skirts, oversized shirts with sweaters. I even like to combine combat boots with dresses because the rough shoes are ideal for style breaks – boots with nice, elegant dresses for example!

Outfit challenge – orange/tangerine pants

When the orange trend came out I thought it’s too bright and bold for me but as I started trying to make some outfits, I came to like it more and more. I usual try to mix it up with neutral colors and duller shades like gray, cream or beige and using the orange as an accent to my outfits.

These Zara orange pants I matched with a white Trussardi jeans shirt and a cream Bershka jacket according to the weather. Then, I accessorize in a fashionway – a cute gray Zara bag and black Jenny Fairy high heels.

Cream-beige color trend goes on

From cream to camel, the 50 shades of beige are a mainstream trend for the fall/winter 2021. This neutral look is refreshingly modern while delightfully alluring and easily wearable.

The key to keeping this look fresh and modern this season is to wear the color palette from head to toe and mix several shades of neutral tones in your outfit. You can also play with textures – leather, cashmere, cotton and faux fur, or combine with oversized pieces. No matter what, the idea is to keep the outfit interesting. 

In this outfit I matched basic pieces but managed to make their combo eye-catching in a fashionway – a beige Zara top, a pair of short H&M jogging pants, a nice Zara long-sleeve shirt, a pair of Bershka sneakers and Nike socks.

Green overall

The summer green to autumn gold – the grass is no longer green, but some of my outfits are still in green, as the green is one of the colors you’ll see everywhere in autumn/winter 2021. The mix of elegant and street style trend is my favorite – so, this outfit matches that – the nice Bershka overall with stylish Zara bag and rough white Bershka sneakers with matching Monki socks.

I always prefer wearing brighter and more joyful colors even if the weather is saying otherwise, simply because it cheers me and those around me, up. Not to mention this season there’s an abundance of mood-boosting highlighter brights to sink your teeth into.

Designers such as Versace, Prada, Molly Goddard, Jill Sander, Nina Ricci, Miu Miu, Stand Studio, Ganni and countless more embraced bold hues like green for this autumn/winter.

Walking into Fall

I still don’t want to accept that the summer has already passed and I should walk into the fall. That’s why on every nice day I try to keep the summer feeling and still wear my summer outfits. Actually the simple and sporty ones like this short Bershka T-Shirt und Zara shorts are one of my favorites. I love short pants and joggers, moreover many of them can be matched even with formal tops and jackets – a trend that turned out to be very high this summer/autumn season, which makes me very happy.

And don’t forget – good things are coming down the road no matter the season, just keep walking, in a fashionway.

Green your days

Yes, yes, and yes – we can wear cycling leggings not only for sport. Surprisingly there are many different ways to make them look smart and nice in our outfits. Honestly, I bought sever pairs of them because they really very comfortable and the ultramarine green one are my favorites. Moreover, green is the most fashionable colour for the fall/winter 2021/22 – this trend took over the runways this season and there are many different proposals of dresses, suits, jackets, skirts, legging, pants and accessories in different shades of it.

And a few words for the ultramarine green color – this deep, strong shade of green with a blue undertone is reminiscent of the vivid color of freshly wet leaves. It is also a classy color with a lot of sophistication, but at the same time bold, with a warm and brilliant undertone capable of illuminating even the most serious outfit.

My outfit here consists of a white Bershka short top, ultramarine Zara cycling pants, light pink Bershka bag, Zara summer shoes, Zara big silver neck chain and other Pandora accessories.

Transparent dresses

The spring/summer season 2021 brought a lot of fashion trends but there is a very popular and eye catching one that is here for some time now – the transparent dresses. This is a relatively new trend, carefully crafted by stylists and designers and represented by many models.

This clothing made of luminous thin fabrics is perfect for the lovers of evening looks – elegant styles were developed for them, mostly floor-length. The dresses can be completely made of translucent fabric, with or without lining, with individual elements or inserts of the material. And this style is not only formal – transparent dresses are also nice for the everyday and can be successfully worn in hot weather or for a walk. It is such an outfit that I want to show you today – this MONKI light pink dress, matched with black Calzedonia underwear, Bershka strappy sandals and a small cute black H&M bag.

1st of July

First of July – new day, new month, new hope… Some may say July morning is special morning and first of July is a special day but for me when it’s summer every day is wonderful. My pictures today are taken at my home – it is so wonderful to wake up and enjoy the home and family, to feel the smell of the nature and jump in the pool. With my family we waited very long to have our own house, made everything with love and I love every place in it and I enjoy every moment staying at home.

Today I decided to show you a simple, comfy outfit in a batik style which I like very much – just a T-Shirt, shorts (which I found in Bershka), sneakers and a pink shopper bag. I made this outfit with three different sneakers as I was not sure which ones fitted the best – a pair of white Nike sneakers, pale pink Adidas and white simple ones. And because in the last days the weather in Vienna is a bit chilly again my oversized white jeans Zara shirt fits perfectly.
