Checkerboard print

Since the start of the Corona pandemic in 2020 we have seen so many aspects of our lives change – our day to day life, our ability to see friends and family and how we work. And of course, the lockdowns have changed fashion from how we see it to how we buy it. Me for instance – I started favouring the more comfortable every day clothes and buying many things online thus missing the enjoyment of the the real shopping activity. Somehow life started looking like a black & white photo – lacking variety… Or like chess, where we have to do only certain moves. In that line of thought, the checkerboard print, which is very trendy and almost everywhere now, fits perfectly to that fashion and I like it. I found these checkerboard wide leg relaxed fit jeans and a fluffy Jacket by MONKI and matched them with cream Bershka boots and a small Pimki bag, in a fashionway.

Combat boots season

Combat boots are characterised by their particularly chunky soles and their striking profile. These wind and weatherproof shoes, which are also really comfortable, have their place especially in the transition period and on cold days. Although combat boots were originally designed for the battlefield a long time ago – we no longer go into battle with them, but we can certainly still engage in a fashionable contest.

I am showing you today a comfortable, practical and stylish feel-good outfit. I wear the black boots with trendy Bershka jogging pants and a short Zara black top. In addition a black faux leather Jacket and a small black MONKI bag.

Basically, the rough boots go with any imaginable outfit combinations. As always, it depends on your own taste and wardrobe. I particularly like outfits with joggers, mini skirts, oversized shirts with sweaters. I even like to combine combat boots with dresses because the rough shoes are ideal for style breaks – boots with nice, elegant dresses for example!

Oversized blazer with biker shorts

I am obsessed with the elegant street style fashion and the bike shorts are one of my favorite must haves. Beige and black are my colors for the bike shorts and here I show you an outfit in „color on color“. I matched the beige shorts with a cream-beige Zara short top and a cream-beige H&M blazer. The accents are the accessories – a brown Monki bag and a pair of black Monki combo boots.

Green overall

The summer green to autumn gold – the grass is no longer green, but some of my outfits are still in green, as the green is one of the colors you’ll see everywhere in autumn/winter 2021. The mix of elegant and street style trend is my favorite – so, this outfit matches that – the nice Bershka overall with stylish Zara bag and rough white Bershka sneakers with matching Monki socks.

I always prefer wearing brighter and more joyful colors even if the weather is saying otherwise, simply because it cheers me and those around me, up. Not to mention this season there’s an abundance of mood-boosting highlighter brights to sink your teeth into.

Designers such as Versace, Prada, Molly Goddard, Jill Sander, Nina Ricci, Miu Miu, Stand Studio, Ganni and countless more embraced bold hues like green for this autumn/winter.

Transparent dresses

The spring/summer season 2021 brought a lot of fashion trends but there is a very popular and eye catching one that is here for some time now – the transparent dresses. This is a relatively new trend, carefully crafted by stylists and designers and represented by many models.

This clothing made of luminous thin fabrics is perfect for the lovers of evening looks – elegant styles were developed for them, mostly floor-length. The dresses can be completely made of translucent fabric, with or without lining, with individual elements or inserts of the material. And this style is not only formal – transparent dresses are also nice for the everyday and can be successfully worn in hot weather or for a walk. It is such an outfit that I want to show you today – this MONKI light pink dress, matched with black Calzedonia underwear, Bershka strappy sandals and a small cute black H&M bag.

White, cream white and pastel

I like playing with colors and matching closely similar colors – the mix of white color with cream and pastel is unusual, but eye-catching and modern.

It is the changing spring/summer weather that motivated me to make this outfit. A nice white top is always classy and of course, matched with jeans, even double classy. I found this pastel jeans at Pimkie and and the top at Zara. I topped this classy combination with a cream H&M summer blazer. The gentle hint coming from the cute black MONKI bag, matched with the black&white shoes, balances the whole outfit in a fashionway.

Invest in black and white

These spring/summer days, when all the shops and websites offer you a palette of sweet, candy colors, we think that our wardrobe will be the most colorful this season. Nevertheless, don’t forget that every now and then, black and white remains a classic and it always works well when you make your choice in the right cuts.

So, when in doubt, wear black and white – a black-white fashion trend is not really a trend. On the contrary – this combination always looks good and is eternal – so it’s worth to invest in, no matter if the pieces are basic or with prints. Today I decided to show you both – a basic black MONKI jeans dress with a black and white Michael Kors printed blazer. Although the weather looks already sunny and warm now, a thin blazer always comes in handy. And such a basic jeans dress is also always useful – you can wear it with or without a T-Shirt and also with leggings when the days are cold – I just love such multifunctional pieces. The shoes I choose are also multifunctional and for all seasons, with matching black and white MK print. The whole outfit I topped with a black Tally Weijl belly bag.

Spring outfit with knitted overall

With the temperatures increasing a little bit down here in Vienna, my excitement about the coming spring makes me wish to start choosing light clothes, but it is not really warm enough to switch to the spring pieces. As much as I want to start stashing away the winter sweaters and tops, the fresh weather right now gave me the chance to put on this brown knitted Zara overall. It is still a great choice for the early spring – keeps you warm while giving you the opportunity to show some legs. Moreover such knitted pieces like shorts, cropped tops, overalls, etc. are very trendy.

I matched my overall with a black turtleneck body and black accessories – a cute MONKI bag, black gloves, Pimkie boots and topped it with a white teddy coat in a fashionway.

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.

High waist jeans

These loose straight high-waist jeans have been laying in my wardrobe for quite some time, as I didn’t really have the guts to wear them – I usually prefer slim-fit ones, that shape the leg. Today though, when I put them on, I got to somewhat like them. I combined them with a black top and black booties. 

This type of pants are very in at the moment, but honestly not everything that is on trend fits to every type of body shape – I would say for myself in this case that is true. That’s why we should always take care to choose not only good matching outfit pieces, but also ones that highlight our pros and hide the cons.
