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.

Sweater with dogtooth, short skirt and over-the-knee boots

I’m always up for the challenge of throwing together a good black and white outfit, only this time matched with bits of silver grey. When I saw this dogtooth chunky sweater, I got inspired to bring you a casual street look that works great for this season.

When it comes to sweaters, I gravitate towards purchasing a variety of styles ranging from high to low. This means I try to invest in at least a few new good sweaters each winter, that will carry me from season to season. And then I go for a handful of on-trend statement sweaters that I can style with more basic pieces to stay relevant, playful and edgy.

This trendy sweater allowed me to do just that — pairing with the short casual black skirt that I’ve had for years, one of my over-the-knee boots from Zara and one of my most favorite black fur bag that matches the fur of my grey-silver jacket . Mixed together you get a nice outfit that not only makes a statement but aligns with a modern chic monochromatic styling scheme, in a fashionway.

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.

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.

Casual glam with guacamole green

There are two shades of green trending in this Fall 2019’s fashion colors, very different from each other – guacamole and eden. Guacamole is my favorite and it is considered one of the „Classics“ this season, being called „nutrient-enriched“ green. Eden on the other hand is a forest green.

Moreover, guacamole green is great if you wish to be bold on color this season because it’s tasteful, soul-calming and very refreshing. It’s somehow intriguing and untypical. Certainly a color to make you stand out.

I found my best matching part for outfits at CALZEDONIA – a pair of glam leggings. And as I currently tend to stick to the oversized sweaters and blousons here I combine it with a long yellow one from Pimkie. Here I find the black accessories a perfekt match – they include shoes by Zara and a Tally WEiJL belly bag. Meanwhile the belly bags are not only in trend byt they are also comfortable and can be eye-catching 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.

Enjoying the wonderful weather in Bulgaria

I am in my home country Bulgaria for a week now and I am enjoying the really wonderful weather here – one that feels more like summer rather than autumn. So, I still got the chance to wear some of my summer outfits – for example like this, one of my favorite – a long off shoulder tunic, in pale pink which is trendy also for autumn and winter clothes, ending with an elegant lace and matched with black shorts. It combines in a great way the street style with elegance, with which I am obsessed.

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.
