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.

Minimalist style or all the colors and patterns

The minimalist style is definitely a style that I like – I often stick to black and white or single-tone palettes, but I also never  give up on the colorful palettes.

To be a minimalist means that you live for black and white and maybe, just occasionally a bit of grey or camel; no over-the-top accessoring, no garish patterns or print clashes. No bold color combinations or rainbow brights. There are just all the neutrals, black and white. 

It’s a very simple style, but I still love putting some pink or another bright color accessory or piece to freshen up the outfit.  So, the minimalist style as I said is a style that I like and incorporate it in my looks every now and then. Such is my outfit today – all in the beige palette. I matched a white Monki skirt and sweater with a beige Zara coat and Pimkie boots in the same color. I topped the outfit also with a beige bag, a white hat and scarf. I hope you like it! And you – are you for a minimalist style or you prefer all the colors?

Jeans shirt with slouchy high waist jeans

Do you have the feeling that in these crazy Corona times we are less and less motivated to dress up well enough? Our old lifestyle has gone and with it the desire to look good. The few times when we do go out, it is for shopping (as much as shops are open right now), or maybe for a small walk, and then we just put on whatever we find quick with the idea that there is anyway no-one that will see us, moreover with a mask. Still, we should take care of our looks, at least because it gives us some so-needed self-confidence.

Here’s one comfortable look from me today. If you are wondering how to combine a jeans shirt in winter – it’s easy – a good sweater on top and jeans for the bottom match perfectly. A classic sweater with collar look. The one I have on, is a Pimkie cream cable sweater with shoulder details. As for the jeans I chose these trendy slouchy high waist ones also from Pimkie, that being so unorthodox are still very comfortable. The whole outfit I topped with a short beige MONKI jacket, brown velvet Zara boots, whose color works very well as an accent and a black Zara bag.

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.

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.

One way to style an oversized sweater

Big and baggy sweaters are all the rage this season. I would like to show you one way to wear such a sweater without looking as if you are swallowed by it.

When choosing such sweaters we think that „the bigger and baggier, the better“, but actually that is wrong – if it’s too big we will start looking like a huge sack. If we want to be chick and trendy, we should make good size decisions and stick closer to our standard size for sweaters, because they are anyway purposely designed to be oversized.

As an oversized knit will inevitably make you look bigger than you actually are, the easiest way to solve that is to combine it with form-fitting or narrow bottoms – for instance skinny jeans, leggings, narrow pants, over-knee socks or over-the-knee boots. I personally prefer to wear it on its own without pants or leggings below it.

 And to avoid getting lost in this big clothes, we should show some skin – might that be a more generous décolletage or some bare leg. 

I combined my oversized black sweater with a pair of black over-the-knee boots. This I matched with my favourite NA-KD coat and some black accessories – a H&M cat hat and a black smiley Bershka bag, in a fashionway.

Black at any time, in any combination

You can wear black at any time, at any occasions and in any combination.

No matter the time of the year I always have a lot of black pieces in my outfits, mainly because they are really easy to match. Honestly, in the past, the black color was predominant in my wardrobe, but the more I followed the fashion trends, the more I reduced it. And not only because of those trends, but also because I realised how beautiful colors could be – colors that I previously thought would not fit me. In fact I also found out something more – we wear the colors that match our mood. Maybe that was the reason that for a long time I was hiding behind the black color. But step by step I changed that, albeit even today, when in doubt, I choose black.

In this outfit I went for a trendy black hoodie with pleats on the back, a black Pimkie booties, a black Valentino bag and a black winter cap, matched with a long beige Zara coat and gray Gucci jeans. So although the black pieces are dominant, adding some fresh colors make the outfit looking nice in a fashionway.

There’s no such thing as bad weather, only inappropriate clothing

Cold gray days, cold winter weather – how to make it not boring? Of course, by giving the opposite contrast – warm, colorful and thinking of the positive aspects. If it’s not cold, how could we wear our nice warm coats, hats and gloves and how could we enjoy the coming of the spring.

My outfit today is based around trendy colorful accessories – a warm pink-black Nike beanie and a pink small bag, which make the look interesting and give a colorful feeling, like in summer. Normally in winter we wear cream, black, gray, beige or otherwise neutral colors, but why not some bright ones in addition. They somehow convey these cute and happy feelings.

I matched those accessories with a mint colored teddy coat from Bershka, a white warm Calliope sweater, Pimkie jeans, Michael Kors sneakers, all in the same palette and my white H&M gloves. So, thus the cold is less cold and the gray day is less gray.

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.

Cream colors layering

Now that it is so cold in Vienna, I really need a thick coat and this NA-KD one is one of my best choices – I just love it. Not only is it super warm and fluffy, but it’s also in one of my favorite colors this season. And the rest of this outfit I also matched in the same cream palette. I combined it with this great looking one-shoulder Zara sweater, white Gucci jeans and beige velour boots. I love layering up for the cold days and matching up similar light colors. To finish the outfit off I went for black accessories – one of my favorite Pinko bags, a black beanie and gloves, both decorated with cream pearls, I hope you like it!
