Let’s shine bright meeting the 2021

The 2020 year was not shiny or bright, but I want to meet the 2021 looking that way, and hoping that everything will be better. My mood in the last day of the old year is shining because tomorrow is the first page of a 365-page book and I want to write it in the best possible way.

The new year marks a new beginning, new adventures to enjoy and memories to create. Here’s wishing you the happiest new year ever, of course in a fashionway.

Golden autumn

Autumn carries more gold in its pocket than all the other seasons (Jim Bishop). Yes, it’s true – the autumn has many lovely colors in the gold palette and inspires us with its beauty.

How do you assemble your autumn outfits? It’s the season when one minute we’re too hot, and the next it’s not. So, what’s a woman to do? We should be clever with our ideas – try to nail the „in between seasons“ sweet spot when matching our outfits. We could on one side keep the passing warm weather feeling, for instance with a pair of shorts, while at the same time stepping into the winter season by choosing a warmer sweater and a fluffy jacket. I chose some autumn colors – burgundy/rosewood for the sweater, golden yellow for the shirt and jacket, black faux fur shorts and black accessories, matched in a fashionway.

A cardigan is always a loved piece

As the weather in may still varies a lot, a light cardigan is always a good piece to have around. But being very comfortable, a cardigan can also be very tricky and can easily ruin our outfit – that’s why you should know how to wear it without looking funny and frumpy.

The first thing is to figure out the style and length of the cardigan that fits best your body type. As with everything else about fashion, women’s bodes are different, so certain styles would be more flattering on some than others. That’s why you should learn what works best for your own body.

And it’s good to wear form-fitting clothes underneath a cardigan, or tight or belted dresses. Especially if the cardigan is a bit slouchy, you have to make sure the silhouette underneath it is form-fitting, otherwise you might look larger than you are.

The next thing to pay attention to is the fit of the arms – my favourites are the ones that have skinnier arms and feel the most slimming.

Also, feel free to show some skin – especially when most of the rest of your body is covered up. It’s more about what you put under your cardigan than the style of the cardigan itself. For example – if you combine with a turtleneck top – choose a sleeveless one, with open shoulders or collar bones. If you wear a normal shirt don’t cover the neckline with a scarf – show some skin instead.

In all that you should still pay attention to the current trends – right now, open cardigans are pretty hot – with holes, semi-transparent and with a different length on both sides.

I chose a holed pale pink cardigan, matched it with a black sleeveless turtleneck top underneath and skinny jeans. Of course, I can’t miss the accessories because they complete the outfit – a long necklace and earrings with a matching bracelet, sunglasses and a bag and shoes with the same colors and details.

Oversized bomber jacket in winter

Thick and well oversized, a bomber jacket is a great choice for the cold winter days. My Zara model in gold and green combines the winter and street styles at the same time. Although the gold and green might already be too shiny, I decided to add even more by choosing some green-gold glittering Calzedonia leggings, but softened them with a black oversized Tezenis sweater and black sock boots that also match with their shining block heels.

This eye-catching shiny outfit fascinates me to wear it, even though I am not really a fan of the combination of green and gold colors. I usually tend to combine green in my other casual outfits with black and beige and always try to add an elegant accent in a shiny color – for example red or orange. Because of that in today’s outfit I decided for gold.

What should you combine a bomber jacket with?

A basic outfit with such a jacket can be a combination with jeans, leggings, stylish pullover or a hoodie and low boots or sneakers. For the bolder, they could add some yellow or even blue, because everything out of the ordinary or out of the etiquette is appreciated more. As for those of you who prefer to stay more decent, you can combine it with grey, beige or black.

Me personally, I tend to prefer the decent colors more, but once in a while I like mixing outstanding outfits, of course in a fashionway.
