Early spring

Early spring is my favorite season for fashion, so when I finally have the possibility to put less layers on, I happily take some off and match my outfits accordingly. Today’s look of mine is based on the over-knees – from ponchos and capes to trenches and short coats, over-the-knee boots make a statement and always flawlessly complete my look.

Thera are many different ways to wear your long boots but I think in this season nothing beats a good sweater dress with a pretty short skirt to complement the over-the-knee boots. Instead of freezing your bare legs in the not-yet-so-warm weather and pretending you are not, or wondering which tights to put on, these are actually really warm and look always trendy.

I have put together my LV over-the-knees with a brown sugar velvet skirt, a black Zara sweater shirt, a cutie faux fur short coat and a LV bag. I wear these during the whole fall, winter and early spring, because they go with any outfit you can think of: jeans and a coat, a sweater dress and a jacket or a short skirt and a blazer. These over-the-knee boots have never met an outfit they can’t elevate in a fashion way.

Chocolate love?

Give me some chocolate and the world feels sweet again – it is one of the best sins on this earth. People who know me will tell you that I do not like chocolate that much, but in the rare occasions when I eat it I know how to enjoy it fully.

I do try to eat healthy, but honestly some chocolate from time to time would not hurt, especially if it’s of exceptional Belgian quality – like the one from the Chocolatier Neuhaus. I also like it when it takes the form of small gestures, like a gift for example, as such that can touch anyone’s heart.

I love to love, I love chocolate, but my biggest love stays with fashion. In line with that I have to mention the accessories I’m wearing today – a MONKI chocolate-colored teddy cat bag combined with a pair of cutie cat Colloseum socks, sweet pink candy Colloseum shoes, velvet bordeaux leggings matched with a softy sweater and a white tender Colloseum teddy coat, in a fashionway.

White and cream colored

I love wearing shades of white and cream color no matter the season and especially now to bust out in the winter… to really lighten things up.

White coats look great in all cuts and styles and because this season belongs to teddy coats I choose again one of them in white.

Why pick a white coat? Because it looks glamorous and refined, rich and sophisticated. There is something about a white coat, an all-white look in the cold season or a classic white coat on top of any colored outfit – it screams impeccable style.

But how to wear a white coat without feeling like polar bear? Some black accessories like a black bag, sunglasses or tights as accents and funky gloves always works so fabulous with a white coat. Very trendy and chic.

Here I’m sharing one of my favorite winter white cream outfit – a MONKI coat, cardigan, skirt and sweater, a pair of white Fila sneakers, Calzedonia tights and a Christian Dior bag.

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.

Silver is trend for this season

I would have never dreamt of wearing anything in silver color, (other than jewellery of course!) if it was not for my blog. But it is my blog that often makes me challenge my own style and comfort level and then only later I begin to like those new styles.

So, as the silver glitter is quite impressive, not only for Christmas decoration but also especially when it comes to accessories and jackets this season, it deeply inspired me. It definitely steals the attention, and the silver clothes are a good option not only for a formal evening out but also you can wear it in more casual combinations, with jeans, pants or casual skirts for example.

I hope you liked my outfit today, especially my silver color jacket and „Primadona“ sneakers. I find the black funky skirt and the black sweater with a silver tiger to match the rest of the outfit nicely. The finish of it all are the Calzedonia silver-shiny tights which I really adore.

Don’t be afraid to choose silver and shine bright like a diamond, in a fashion way!

Christmas mood in Vienna

I am so happy to live for so many years in one of the most beautiful European cities – Vienna, where the magic before Christmas is so compelling. The countless lights and the glamorous decoration, all of it makes your soul realise that Christmas is coming.

I love the small local streets with their small curious shops, that seem to lead you to another world, especially in the evening. Nothing compares to that – magic is all around in the air…

As for my outfit today – I am definitely all about the teddy coats this season and I love this one in pink. It’s so fluffy and cosy, that it makes the Christmas magic mood even more magical. It is safe to say that I’ve never been wrapped up in anything warmer or cosier than this @zara outfit – fake fur trousers, black booties, coat and sweater.

No doubt, I feel like this year my coat wardrobe is consistently expanding, but my favourite one there is always the teddy coat. It’s the thing to go to with almost everything. So If you’re only looking to make a few firm outerwear investments this season, then stake your claim right now for teddy coats, of course, in a fashion way.

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.

Dogtooth print

It’s the trend that combines two true loves – pets and prints – yes, it’s dogtooth. First seen in Scotland back in the 1800s, it has been a wardrobe favourite which had its ups and downs through the years – but I’m pretty happy that it’s back again. 

From all the black and white prints that I love, dogtooth is definitely one of my favourites. These dogtooth trousers from Calzedonia have been in my wardrobe for a while, but I have actually worn them just a handful of times – a reason might be that I was not really sure what to combine them with. Today I matched them with a black shirt featuring details with the same print – I think print with print items pair well. I find a gray coat to be a good complement to the outfit, as a black one would be too boring. I’m really digging this combo though. It has a bit of a retro feel to it, without being too gimmicky. The black boots from Zara and the Pinko bag finish the outfit as accents, in a fashionway.

Adding some leopard pattern

Never thought I’d see the day when I would reach for leopard prints, but these shoes are so comfortable and cute, that I couldn’t resist.

I thought it’s fun to add some trendy prints to the accessories, especially when the rest of the outfit is more neutral. There are many different kinds or boots, high heels or sneakers with similar prints, but I like this one which makes the figure elegant and gracious, just like the walk of a real leopard.

To highlight the shoes in this outfit I chose a black tunic from one of my favourite brands and transparent Calzedonia leggings, which I find to be a great combination. I match them, of course, with one of my this season best-loved teddy cosy coats – this time in beige.

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.
