Fashion is a point of view

I have always thought that it’s important to have a clear point for view of my fashion style and although my style follows the general fashion trends, i always also listen to my inner vioce and stick to my own feelings for each outfit. For me fashion does not mean to have the same handbag or pair of heels like everyone else is wearing. I love it when I see an original piece, something that’s not all over the media.

I very often pick clothes that I feel are most relevant to me, no matter the brand. I do like the famous designers and brands, but I don’t think that the exclusive and expensive is always the best. Because, as a friend of mine said recently, you can look fabulous even if you put on a potatoe sack for an outfit, as long as you wear it well, in a fashion way.

So, to make your personal fashion point of view, you have to find your own specific taste and present it in your own unique way.

In this post I wear one of my favorites color combos – black and white. For me this match follows no season and never leaves the fashion scene.

Friday night: dress casual to impress

My outfit today is not a daily one, but something different – a night-out outfit. 

The weather outside is really summertime and I would not want to stay the whole evening in a warm and uncomfortable outfit. Thats why I choose a look in which I feel well and is also fun – a sexy bra top, white blazer and transparent cycling pants. To be honest I have never been a fan of these pants, but wearing them in a proper classy way with blazer and high heels is a trendy style that I like very much.

What about you? Would you also wear cycling pants and do you have a favourite bra top with which you are more provoking and would you take a similar challenge in a fashionway?

Black is the new white

Bright or dark, black or white – quite simply both.

There are always pretty good ideas how to match black and white, but the question that always stays there is how much exactly black and how much white. My answer to this would be – as much as I feel like it at the time – in such a way that you can’t say if one is more than the other.

This outfit was provoked by this wonderful coat, which I fell in love with. But instead of going for brighter colors for the rest, so the coat can pop out, I decided to dress me all black with the single exception of the white pullover. Black does not detract brightness, it also does not oppress nor gives any negative impression, on the contrary – it can give an outfit character in an original way, namely in a fashion way.

What makes me different makes me beautiful

I have many favourite quotes, but this one from Coco Chanel is in my top ten: „Beauty begins the moment you decide to be yourself“. That said, I have always believed that being yourself is priceless and it’s what makes you beautiful.

Of course we still have to follow all trends, news and the fashion in general in order to be up to date. But the fashion world is like an endless ocean we must learn to swim in, every season, year, month, week and day.

And what best to fit the winter season than the white, even when it blends into the snow around us. It goes even better with a pair of black boots and fluffy coat, to achieve the always trendy black and white combination. Though high heel boots are not typical for the real snowy winter I like them very much and they make me feel elegant in this outfit, because elegance is not only standing out, but being remembered.

So be you, be different, be yourself!

Adding some winter white

It is still winter but I’m looking so much forward to spring that when adding some winter white to my wardrobe I choose not only winter clothes (like a thick sweater and a cap), but also a short skirt and over-knee socks which would be more suited for a warmer season.

But before taking the challenge of wearing white, you should know that winter white is rarely pure white because of the wool material. It’s often closer to ivory or even slightly grayed out white, like ecru. But do you know – it’s worth it – take the challenge to wear white in your winter outfits, that way you will brighten up the gray cold days.

Gifts

Some gifts are big. Other are small. But the ones that come from the heart are the best gifts of all. /Tinku Razoria/

I hope you’ve got already your Christmas gifts, but at Fracomina there is always something to look for. And if you want something really special, you can have a look at the premiere collection. I feel always great wearing Fracomina – it is a different and outstanding Italian style.

Why black and white makes you don’t think about what you wear

The black color makes everyone amazing – black is elegant and chick, black makes you slim and looks good on all skin tones and hair colors. But the white touch to the black makes wonders.

Coco Chanel said it in the best way: “Woman think of all colors except the absence of color. I have said that black has it all. White too. Their beauty is absolute. It is the perfect harmony”.

A black and white outfit is always stylish, that’s why I’m not only feeling great in a black and white combination – I feel like not thinking about what I am wearing.

In this line of thought, two favorite phrases of mine pops up in mind: “Whatever you think, think the opposite” and “ Even when going all black, add some white, too”.

Black and white looks as good on men as it does on women – same is true for those fine shoes from Guiliano Gudman – they are available in both “Star Boy” and “Star Girl” flavors.

Cosy evening in black & white

My post today is an evening post as I am in a wonderful place with great surroundings, dressed in my favourite colors black and white – black as the coming evening and white as the bright thoughts coming with the pre-holiday mood. In addition black accessories like black over-knee boots can be a perfect match.

Black and white checkered off-shoulder top

Although it is already autumn an off-shoulder top is always an adorable one wether you go for a chick party or a fashionable everyday look.

A checkered black and white top could be everything for a perfect outfit – from a casual simple one, wearing it with pants or flirty mini-skirt to an elegant pretty must-have with jeans or trousers combined with heels. They say a checkered top requires combining with specific other items, but I think it can be matched with anything and am surprised how even being so simple it could instantly score an effortless cool appeal.

What about a chic black and white outfit idea

Is there anything more stylish than a dress that’s all black and white? Some might say you need color to be exciting but the contrast between these two colors is sure to thrill enough. Autumn comes with so many colors, that simple black and white fits perfect with the surrounding.

Together, black and white represent the minimum of the color palette, but they can also take the maximum out of an outfit, being eye-catching and sharpening the style.

The bright white color with the black flower patterns on my dress, blend in with the autumn yellow leaves backdrop beautifully, in a fashionway :).
