Long dress crochet pattern

The summer months are a great time to enjoy the beach wearing our favourite „must-haves“. Some of the things we need are nice bikini sets, a sun hat, sunglasses, etc., but for for me a must have is also a cover-up, or a light long cloth like summer tunics, caftans, thin dresses.

With the wide, billowy sleeves and the draped, airy fit, this garment fits and flatters every body type. Not to mention, the loose cut also keeps you cool on warm days and balmy nights.

Such is my crochet style white tunic from Zara today – it helps protect me from the sun while makes me feel elegant even on the beach. Of course I combined it with a Calzedonia bikini set – a black one, because I love combining black and white. The sunglasses I chose are from Michael Kors.

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.

The summer is my vitamin C

It’s summertime, time to get the full sunshine, time to swim in the water of a lake, sea or swimming pool and no need to wear any wool! The summer is my favourite season and I love enjoying it to the full, no matter where. My post today is by the pool at home, of course without a real outfit, but with this nice black one-shoulder Calzedonia 3-piece swimsuit – the bottom part is a set of bikini and shorts, which I find very practical and like them very much. Not to mention that black is my fave for swimwear.

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.

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.

Why not?

This week the temperature outside is sub-zero, there is the ongoing lockdown, but a why not a walk outside, when properly dressed, of course. My pictures today are from Stadtpark in Vienna – a favourite place of mine for a stroll.

A thick coat and a sweater, warm pants and good shoes and… what else… a cute beanie! I am once more with my winter NA-KD coat, a C&A sweater, faux leather pants from Calzedonia, a great pair of high combat boots matched with a bag from Zara and of course everything combined in a fashionway.

Oversized overshirt

I love jackets, coats and shackets and I now added also overshirts to that list. Those used to be something for men to wear, but this lightweight jacket trend seems to have moved over to women’s wardrobes too nowadays. It surely comes out to be a good first early-spring purchase.

Overshirt jackets are the trend you can see almost everywhere right now – it’s just about finding the right one in the right color, if you like this style. With nice big bright checks or in plain color, an overshirt jacket, with or without a collar will work on top of everything you currently have and will give you a fresh update in your wardrobe.

I found one of mine in Zara – a black and white wool blend checkered shirt with big pockets. Honestly I did not expect it to be so comfortable and warm for such a type of jacket. I combined it with a white Bershka hoodie, black faux leather Calzedonia pants, white Bershka block heel booties and a black and white bag. More or less the whole outfit is styled in black and white. This look proves that a black and white combination does not need to be boring.

Fluffy coats weather

Cold weather and fluffiness somehow go hand in hand. Moreover a fluffy coat ist not only warm and cozy but also very trendy and you can match with almost everything.

I feel effortlessly chic in this winter outfit today. Pairing a large black faux fur coat with a winter cord shirt, a Pimkie checkered skirt, Calzedonia leggings, chunky black Balenciaga ankle boots and a matching sweet Elisabetta Franchi small bag. And although I am not a huge fan of beanies, this black one with a gold snowflake fits the weather and the outfit nicely. Thus, I’ve achieved a casual glamour look and I love it!

How I wear cape

In autumn/winter I tend to combine the cape with simple sweater and leggings or jeans. In my outfit today I went for a light pink cape with a Christmas star, as it is the beginning of December and Christmas is coming. Matching the cape and the Christmas mood I chose red thermo leggings from Calzedonia. The black sweater perfectly fits the black Primadonna booties and completes the outfit in a fashionway.

The boots season has arrived

At fall-winter time I love comfort in choosing the shoes but always combined with femininity when making the outfits. This pair of MONKI Boots are one of my must-haves for cold days and I am really in love with them. In any case a leather look jacket is a choice that fits to most of my outfits, and another must-have. As a black lover, today I made my look all in black – black short Zara top, leather look Calzedonia cycling shorts, Pull & Bear black leather look jacket, MONKI black boots and a little cute black H&M bag.

But, no matter the choice of color, let your light shine in a fashionway!
