Pink is my new black

Normally I’m not a person who chases every single trend. Of course, I take my inspiration from them and integrate such pieces into my own wardrobe. And one of the trends – the “pink” one – has absolutely overwhelmed me this summer. I already have lots of things in pink and keep finding many possible combinations with them. Today I wanted to show you this simple stretched pink Zara dress which I matched with a funky colorful Rinascimento blazer and white strappy Zara sandals. I like such basic dresses as they are easy to match with blazers, jackets and can also go well with leggings.

White, cream white and pastel

I like playing with colors and matching closely similar colors – the mix of white color with cream and pastel is unusual, but eye-catching and modern.

It is the changing spring/summer weather that motivated me to make this outfit. A nice white top is always classy and of course, matched with jeans, even double classy. I found this pastel jeans at Pimkie and and the top at Zara. I topped this classy combination with a cream H&M summer blazer. The gentle hint coming from the cute black MONKI bag, matched with the black&white shoes, balances the whole outfit in a fashionway.

Classic MOM fit jeans with cracks

This year you can see a lot of jeans trends. My „feel good“ Jeans are in MOM cut and with cracks/holes. I found this classic MOM fit hi-rise pair of jeans by Zara and matched them with a Zara skin color body and a white H&M blazer. I topped the outfit with this cute white Zara pleated bag and shoes and added an accent with a sweet Pandora Mickey necklace.

Invest in black and white

These spring/summer days, when all the shops and websites offer you a palette of sweet, candy colors, we think that our wardrobe will be the most colorful this season. Nevertheless, don’t forget that every now and then, black and white remains a classic and it always works well when you make your choice in the right cuts.

So, when in doubt, wear black and white – a black-white fashion trend is not really a trend. On the contrary – this combination always looks good and is eternal – so it’s worth to invest in, no matter if the pieces are basic or with prints. Today I decided to show you both – a basic black MONKI jeans dress with a black and white Michael Kors printed blazer. Although the weather looks already sunny and warm now, a thin blazer always comes in handy. And such a basic jeans dress is also always useful – you can wear it with or without a T-Shirt and also with leggings when the days are cold – I just love such multifunctional pieces. The shoes I choose are also multifunctional and for all seasons, with matching black and white MK print. The whole outfit I topped with a black Tally Weijl belly bag.

Relaxed outfit for the cold days

There are those days, when you want to put on just something comfy and relaxed, but also appropriate for the cold days. Such is my outfit today – with one of my favourite Zara relaxed mom in Austin blue jeans. I like this type of jeans very much because they have a relaxed fit, straight leg and a high rise. I matched them with a black turtleneck top and a brown Zara blazer. Then I topped the outfit with my Balenciaga sneakers which I am in love with, combined with black Nike socks and finished it with a black Fendi bag, in a fashionway.

The shacket

The oversized shirt jacket or shacket, similar to a blazer, has probably been all over your social network feeds and for good reason, too. This easy-to-wear style is just perfect for your winter/spring layering outfits.

Often seen in plaid or buffalo check, this is one of the season’s most seen over clothes.

When styling the shacket, think of it like a blazer. It’s a good idea to keep it oversized and layered it over a turtleneck top. I love my blue shacket from Zara in this oversized-look and wear it with slim fit faux leather pants, denim or leggings, matched with turtleneck sweaters or turtleneck tank tops. This outfit I finished with my favourite black combat Zara boots and a stylish Fendi black bag, in a fashionway.

Jeans forever

No matter time of the year or the year itself, jeans are always in season.

I have vivid memories of my childhood how different the jeans were – classic or special, stonewashed, high-waisted with a button-fly, bride or loose tapered legs. And as the fashion tends to come back after some years, now we have the high waisted jeans back, just like in the old times.

I found those 80‘s skinny, slim fit, high waisted jeans in horizon blue by Zara and almost felt the fashion from the times of my mother. There is one small difference though – in the past, when my grandma saw a cut or a hole in my jeans, first thing she said was it needs to be patched – now those are made intentional and fashionable.

I matched them with my favourite black – a black stretched Zara body, a black Michael Kors blazer, black boots and as a final touch a cute brown bag from MONKI with a brown Gucci belt. All in all a casual outfit, matched in a fashionway.

Stay true to myself

I always try to stay true to myself and to my style – I love the sport-elegant style – being elegant while casual, without loosing on comfort. The outfit today is a fine example of that – cycling shorts with a stylish blazer. 

Not everyone likes, or is eager to wear cycling shorts in daily outfits – myself, when I discovered the trend last year, was also not so enthusiastic, but nowadays I enjoy it very much. As I often said here, I am a huge fan of cream colors, so it is no wonder that I chose to wear beige shorts. To keep it classy I matched a long white cream blazer and a black top. To complete the outfit I went for black block heeled shoes and a Louis Vuitton bag, in a fashionway.

Are pastels the new neutral colors?

Pastels are pale colors that are tender and do not stand out too much, but still bring colors to an outfit while acting neutral. Being so baby sweet and delicately tender, I would wear them all the time. 

I find the pale pink and pastel petrol to be a great combination. I matched a pale pink blazer with a short lace pastel petrol top and short denim cycling shorts. Finished the whole look with a black Furla bag and pink-black block heels, in a fashionway.

Blazers are not only for a business look

Blazers are often considered super restraining and as something for colder weather. I tend to disagree – blazers are great and can be used all year long – have a look at this white one with wrinkled sleeves for example – it’s a great piece that could be matched with different outfits every season.

No matter how you wear them, blazers truly are wardrobe essentials. This one I wear with a beige nude top, short jeans and nude heels. I topped it off with a long Pandora necklace and a matching Hermes belt. Of course this look is not strictly business, as a blazer would suggest, but can be casual, street and undemanding. In fact, blazers are being worn more and more in a casual sense than in a professional one.
