Classy and cool day time look in black and brown

Isn’t it crazy how you can transform a casual T-shirt and jeans look to casual chic almost instantaneously as soon as you throw on a faux fur and a teddy coat? There is something about the black and brown tones and faux fur that gives an elegant, romantic and feminine feel. I feel absolutely darling in that faux leather pants and teddy coat combined with the black flat casual booties.

Fashion trends come and go, but one that retains its timeless style is the fake fur. Such a jacket is a statement outwear any fashionista should have when the temperatures start to drop. And also a good faux puff-piece could not only keep you nice and snug, but it could also single handedly glam up any ensemble.

From teddy to oversized jackets, to vibrant colors and funky chic patterns / prints – this is one cold-weather piece your wardrobe needs.

I have already rounded up some of my favourite stylish fake fur outfits and inspirations to help you rock this furry trend, in a fashionway – a dark brown teddy coat, a beige sweater, black Pimkie faux fur leather backpipe pants, a Gucci scarf, a black Pinko bag and a pair of cool flat booties.

Believing in the beauty of dreams

The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams – I love this quote and believe that many of our dreams could come true. In this context my 2020 has started with a lot of positivity, purposes and dreams. I feel it will be a great year, full of exciting experiences and achievements. I am in the right state of mind to bring the book of my life to the next chapter and to fill it with new adventures. Epictetus said: „First say to yourself what you would be, and then do what you have to do.“ So, I am ready and motivated.

Meanwhile motivation is one of the most important things we should have, it is an emotion, a way of thinking which leads us forward. We become what we think about.
So , I like dreaming, I do like also fairytales like children, but I also like to do things in order to fulfil my dreams.

My photos today are again from Vienna, which in the evenings looks really fairly, wrapped in softy Zara sweater, also Zara skinny Jeans and Sacha Sneakers.

Love wearing long coats?

I always believed that a long coat is a super versatile piece of clothing that a woman should have in her winter wardrobe. I got convinced about that only after I started wearing one, because a cool, well-fitting long coat instantly elevates my look from super casual to dapper formal.

Moreover, it’s very easy to make an outfit with it – one of my favourite approaches is to just throw the coat over a simple long sweater and a pair of over knee boots – the result is amazing. Such a combination can also work in a formal meeting or event.

Wool is a preferred fabric for such an overcoat. But if you’re planning to wear an overcoat in the summer as well then go for 100% cotton. My coat here is with 50% Camel fur und 50% wool. The style is in your hands – there are many different types of long coats – no hard rules here, you can pick the one you like the most, but pick the length according your figure. The one here is a bit oversized, because I like to wear it with thick layers underneath.

I think a black fedora hat matches to a long coat nicely – it’s a chic and formal addition, in a fashion way.

Something checkered – yes, of course!

Checkered pants or leggings – I’m going for both . They are just beautiful and almost everyone is wearing them because they have this chic vibe to them. French style mixed with retro, they are like this fashion challenge everyone’s doing, wearing them to fit their own looks. Some girls wear them with sneakers, some go for heels; some wear them relaxed and chic, while others go for sleek office formal styles.

I like wearing them on different occasions, but today I am going in a city street style and match my checkered Calzedonia leggings with a simple black shirt, accessories and once again one of my favorite teddy coats – the one in yellow.

For achieving a classic look with such kind of pants, grab a basic shirt or singlet out from the back of your wardrobe and pair it with them. White, grey, naxy, black and tan tops are also great options, matched in a fashion way.

Life is better in sneakers

Out of all my fashion struggles, I think shoes are by far the most challenging for me. Most of my time I wear casual or elegant shoes and rarely put on stretchy flats or sneakers, unless I’m exercising of course. That is because I think sport shoes do not emphasise a woman’s femininity. But if chosen right you could match them pretty well.

Moreover the current fashion trends allow for breaking of stereotypes – ugly, chunky, plateau-sneakers find their way into many outfits. Although a bit rough, i got to like them, although i would prefer the flat converse-type and sock sneakers more.

My outfit today is street style – a favourite t-shirt of mine with the logo „Life is better in sneakers“, skinny jeans and of course the sneakers. Those sneakers actually have a story by themselves – produced by the Giuliano Gudman designer, they are a unique piece.

Enjoying the wonderful weather in Bulgaria

I am in my home country Bulgaria for a week now and I am enjoying the really wonderful weather here – one that feels more like summer rather than autumn. So, I still got the chance to wear some of my summer outfits – for example like this, one of my favorite – a long off shoulder tunic, in pale pink which is trendy also for autumn and winter clothes, ending with an elegant lace and matched with black shorts. It combines in a great way the street style with elegance, with which I am obsessed.

Not dreaming of the 100k, but following my dreams

Years ago my view about the purpose of my life and work left me feeling hungry for a fresh start. I was ready for a little effervescence and so I followed the passion that I ever wanted to – the fashion.

So, now, after many years working in the fashion world I finally found my real place… Nowadays I‘m no longer dreaming of those „100k“ (or more) likes, I just want to keep presenting you my fashion views and ideas, trying to be of as much help as possible, of course always in fashion way 😊. But don’t forget – most important thing is – learn, collect ideas, follow others but always stay true to you and be yourself.

How do we wear a bodysuit?

In the same way like the one-piece swimsuit the bodysuit is also one of my favorite. This one-piece wonder offers support, flexibility and a variety of styling options from professional to downright sexy looking. But why and how do you wear one?

Bodysuits are one-piece garments, similar to a leotards made from the finest nylon tricot that come in a range of styles from long sleeved and blousey to spaghetti strapped, cut-off and skintight ones. They function as any shirt would (except a crop top). Most bodysuits also provide tension from the shoulders to the crotch to help play up your curves, especially with low-cut necklines. They basically lift you up and work as the perfect base layer for any outfit! Bodysuits could be worn almost with everything – skirts, pants, shorts and jeans – any bottom you can think of. Styling a bodysuit can range from casual, sexy street style, to a professional glamorous look.

When going casual, think simple styles in stretchy fabrics to make an eye-catching look. Simple tank top bodysuits (with some fun details like an open back or lacing up the sides) look great paired with denim shorts, jogger pants or distressed jeans. And the best choice for shoes are some sneakers or a low block heels.

I choose a silver, shiny off-the-shoulder, cut-out to the chase bodysuit with open back matched with black shorts and block heels.

So, what is your favorite? If you don’t have one go and look for it – it is a great piece to incorporate into your wardrobe, in a fashion way.

Vegetables or fruits motives for your summer outfits

Summer is a time for relaxing holidays and for long evenings spent with friends and family. It is a time to gather energy and warmth from the sun and for me there is no better way to do that than by the pool or at the beach. This year I am in Bulgaria in the wonderful St. Vlas resort – it is a holiday town located in the southern foothills of the Stara Planina Mountain, very near to the Black Sea coast. St. Vlas occupies the north part of Nessebar bay, only 10 km from the municipality center town of Nessebar, close to the largest Bulgarian seaside resort – Sunny beach.

I enjoy every day here, not only because the people and the location are great, but also because of all the friends I have here, of course without forgetting The Fashionway.

This summer everything with fruits and vegetables is a perfect goal. If you are wondering what kind of outfit to choose for the pool or the beach it is easy – 🍉 watermelon, pineapple, lemons or even peppers 🌶 motives could be great. My favorite is the watermelon, what about yours?

Floral feeling

Dresses that feature flowers and floral patterns are often our spring and summer staple. With this article, picking some floral patterns I want to show you how they bring out your confident femininity. Floral print dresses styled the right way and outerwear are easily worn and could make the look of gloom.

While a floral dress is great in theory, in fact it is often a challenge to pull off, so choosing the right floral patterns is important to fit your body and style.

Consider that larger flowers are more flattering to smaller body types – you should not go for oversized floral patterns if you have a shapely one because those may add a few kilos to your silhouette. If your body type is slim to average, try combining larger with smaller floral patterns.

Also, consider the background color of your floral dress – a bright background fits perfectly on a thinner body, while choosing a darker one will give you a more tailored and tapered look and the illusion of being slimmer. 

At the end a floral concept must fit to your mood, style and complete your femininity, of course in a fashionway.
