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.

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.

Keep it casual with jogging pants

Due to the pandemic I hardly felt the switch from the winter to the spring, and especially in Vienna, the spring being so cold and short, we somehow skip it all-together and directly jump in the summer mood. That’s why, even though its May already, my wardrobe is still a mix of winter, spring and summer clothes.

Recently when in doubt what to put on, I tend to always choose jogging pants – mainly because it’s the easiest way to look good, feel comfortable and be on trend at the same time. And because I all into the sweet colors mood I have ones in mint, violet, and pink.

Today I matched my violet one from Pimkie with a white Bershka cropped top, one of my favorite Zara shirts that can be matched with almost everything, „I love you“ socks, multi cream Michael Kors Olympia trainers and a sweet white blue belt bag.

An easy way to look good wearing a long sleeves sweatshirt top and short Joggers

On those smooth days like Sundays you need just a casual look and don’t care mood. So, it might be safe to say joggers are my new favourite pants, not only long ones for the winter but also short ones for the summer. I’ve always been a denim girl, but recently joggers are winning me over. As soon as I laid eyes on these PULL&BEAR joggers and the sweatshirt top in a candy mint color, I knew I need them for this spring/summer season. I love the effortlessness and versatility this outfit has. Some joggers have a tendency to be more relaxed like for home, but these ones are more tight and that’s why they are just my style. (By the way the pants and sweatshirt carry the name „smooth(ie) days“).

I topped the whole outfit with a sweet Bershka bag also in a matching candy color, once more my favourite Alexander McQueen sneakers and a pair of white Nike socks, in a fashionway.

Casual outfit, jogging style

Casual, comfortable and careless – this could be an outfit with jogging pants.

It always makes me very happy when an ongoing trend is also a very comfortable one. If it was up to me I would wear my comfy hoodie every day when going out, especially in winter. So the currently trendy jogging outfits fit me perfectly, now that everyone is wearing them casually on the streets and not just at home. 

But is it o.k. to just go out like that? Yes, of course and today I am showing you one such outfit. I matched a trendy light mint jogging pants with the same top, a teddy coat and Nike sneakers. It’s not only comfortable, but also trendy in a fashionway.

A cool look with jogging pants, not just for at home!

The jogging pants are at the moment the it-piece almost everywhere. That’s because they are good not only for at home or for sport, but also for a casual stroll, shopping, meeting with friends, etc. Even for the office, if your dress code there allows it, especially if well combined with a blazer.  

I decided to show you how I combined my joggers in a trendy outfit. Obviously the key piece in that look are those beige jogging pants from Bershka, matched with a crop top of the same material/color and topped with an oversized shirt from Zara. The crop tops really fit great to the sporty bottoms. The whole outfit gets complemented by a Just Cavalli beanie and Michael Kors sneakers 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.

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.

Jogging pants trend

Although originally known as jogging pants when introduced by Adidas, nowadays they find their use in nearly all areas of styling – they even get some front rows in the fashion weeks. If casually styled for the every-day use, or nicely combined in an elegant business outfit – they seem to fit everywhere.

If you still wonder where did the joggers trend come from, must have missed the whole „athleisure“ movement that has been all over the place lately. „Athleisure“ obviously is a combination of „athletic“ and „leisure“, which leads to the style working well both for the free time, as well as for the office.

To achieve a modern look, a statement piece like the jogging pant should be combined with classic items like coats, shirts and even high heels. As it seems, nowadays the sport outfits have become popular also outside of the fitness studios and the open air tracks.

My outfit today, shot in my „still-work-in-progress“ blogger room, consists of tender mint Pimkie jogging pants, a casual Alcott white hoodie with a classic Zara elegant pink shirt underneath. The final touch are my nike sneakers, all combined in a fashionway.

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!
