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.

Sugar almond over-the-knee boots – sexy, classy, elegant and stylish

There is no doubt – over-the-knee boots are always desired and if they are worn properly they could be even more interesting than they look. The most important thing to consider when wearing this kind of boots is choosing minimalistic outfits – this always leads to the coolest looks.

In this case simplicity is the better choice when matching the clothes. A short dress, a tunic, a long blazer or a blouse/sweater with a short skirt are always a great match. One of my favorite combinations when going casual is with a long oversized sweater. Oversized und baggy tops are the perfect go – tight-fitting tops don’t look as fashionable with high boots. Also, avoid wearing over-the-knee boots with leather, deep décolleté, or leopard prints. Instead, you should pair them with clothing that is covered up at least one way, such as turtleneck sweaters, maxi hemlines or a coat to top off your look.

As for color, black over-the-knee boots are beautiful and elegant. They complement any other color of the dress. But gray and brown high boots are also good choices – like the black high boots, they are worth keeping. And because I like variety in my outfits I chose a pair of trendy sugar almond colored boots with an oversized long dark grey sweater. Sugar almond color is one of the top colors for the fall/winter 2019 – it is a sweet, smoky shade of brown, but lighter. It’s mixed with other tones of warmth that gives it an appetising and sweet appearance, in a fashion way.

Hoodie trend

The hoodie trend is very active at the moment and got everyone talking. But what makes it so popular? Well, it’s inexpensive, easy to style, but most importantly it’s comfortable and fits perfectly to the street style.

I believe nearly everyone has a hoodie in their wardrobe. So, it is very easy to grab one and make a full outfit out of it. But take care – because hoodies are relatively loose and chillig, you have to pick some more elegant toursers. I combine it most often with skinny jeans or fake leather leggings. It could also work with chinos, but if you go for daily jogging pants, your look will quickly become too homy cand casual.

Today I decided to go for a classical hoodie in a very trendy fuxia color, combined with black skinny jeans. To break away from the sporty look of the top, I completed the outfit with an elegant bag and funky sneakers. I love breaking standard styles: in this case a mix of classic and sporty, in a fashion way.

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.

Believe in yourself

No matter what happens in the outside world, as long as you have faith in yourself, no darkness can touch you!” – Mehmet Murat ildan

Today I decided to share with you something that’s not just a fashion article but one that is more personal about me.

Some years ago, there was a time when the lack of belief in myself was a big factor in my life. I was not pursuing anything that I wanted to, because I didn’t think I could. Sometimes it can be hard to believe in yourself, especially if you feel like you have something to offer but don’t know how to present it and are reluctant to do it because you’re afraid what people will tell you.

But as the time goes by I have learned that it’s completely fine to try, even if I fail, and to put myself out there and be imperfect, because everyone is worthy and capable to do something they believe in.

I try to set goals for myself and meet those goals. Once I make a goal, I work hard to achieve it. My education and previous work history were very different, but inside my dreams have always been drawing me to fashion.

Staying positive and learning from my failures made me think in the right direction. So, if you did something wrong, embrace it, because you’ll have an easier time to know what is right from wrong.

Today’s post is a challenge for me, too – before I never believed enough in myself and my figure to make a photoshoot in underwear (here in one of my favorite brands “Intimissimi”) – but as you can see I did, because I managed to overcome those concerns in a fashionway.

So, just believe in yourself and follow your dreams! 🙂

Encourage yourself, believe in yourself, and love yourself. Never doubt who you are” – Stephanie Lahart

Vintage but trendy

Looking for a new look this summer and some style inspiration for creating a new outfit? I have for you an easy, casual proposal: why not a lovely holed or knitted top/tunic in a vintage look? I always thought clothes of a knitted lace type are too vintage and look like something from my grandma’s wardrobe. I am sure that every woman has something similar and know it very well. But they should not be underestimated – they are perfect for the summer and would work well with any high waisted skirt, shorts or pants. I personally chose the classic black color under it – high waisted shorts and a balconette. So, don’t wait – find your vintage knitted tunic and go for it – style it in fashionway!

Happy International Kissing Day

July the 6th is the International Kissing Day. In some countries it is custom for both men and women friends to kiss each other on the lips as a greeting, while in others an air kiss on each other’s cheek is a standard. In other places some people actually opt for 3 kisses as a form of a greeting.

Of course, the most passionate is the kiss between partners. So, however you kiss, enjoy it and make it with feeling! Happy international Kissing Day everyone!

In any case I have to say a few words about my outfit – inspired by the color of the kiss 💋- a red transparent jacket, one of my favorite lace tops and black shorts, always combined with love, passion and in a fashionway.

How do you wear your colored shoes?

No matter how many pairs of color we own, it’s the black ones that we most often reach for. Obviously, matching colored shoes to your look requires a bit more thought and effort than simply putting on some easy go-to shoe.

For my shoes today I chose one of the nowadays hot and trendy colors – orange. If your outfit has a color in it, you can match your shoes in any shade of that colour. Or you can use your shoes and bag, without having the same color in your outfit, just in order to put an accent on it.

Orange Shoes go best with: blue, white, earth tones, red, purple. In this case I matched them with a short olive green skirt that emphasises on the long legs. In addition a white shirt with orange flowers goes great in a fashion way.

A favourite hoodie look

There is no better companion in the spring/summer than the hoodie – trendy, comfortable and really cool. I tend to like the casual and simple but eye-catching things, so the hoody is just the thing for me. It also goes nearly with everything.

Although the quickest and simplest combination is with jeans and sneakers – here I chose a skirt which is also fashionable and comfortable. The best footwear that matches the outfit are my white Fila sneakers that are so trendy and I love them so much. Accessories are not to be forgotten – a Michael Kors backpack and the pink glasses which complement the roses on the hoodie, in a fashionway.

Inspired to give mint green a try!

You don’t really see the mint green color very often, especially when it comes to clothing, but it’s trendy right now and is a great choice if you want to add some variety to your daily outfits. Matching it with other colors could be risky but don’t be afraid to experiment. I really love mixing colors together and the mint green is a good base for many others – for instance lavender, pink, blue etc., but dark blue is my favourite. I match a mint top with dark blue trousers and finish that with a white bag and shoes.

I hope you like this outfit and would also become inspired to give mint green a try in your fashion way! You can definitely wear it anywhere, anytime, all summer long!
