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!

Oversized overshirt

I love jackets, coats and shackets and I now added also overshirts to that list. Those used to be something for men to wear, but this lightweight jacket trend seems to have moved over to women’s wardrobes too nowadays. It surely comes out to be a good first early-spring purchase.

Overshirt jackets are the trend you can see almost everywhere right now – it’s just about finding the right one in the right color, if you like this style. With nice big bright checks or in plain color, an overshirt jacket, with or without a collar will work on top of everything you currently have and will give you a fresh update in your wardrobe.

I found one of mine in Zara – a black and white wool blend checkered shirt with big pockets. Honestly I did not expect it to be so comfortable and warm for such a type of jacket. I combined it with a white Bershka hoodie, black faux leather Calzedonia pants, white Bershka block heel booties and a black and white bag. More or less the whole outfit is styled in black and white. This look proves that a black and white combination does not need to be boring.

Dreaming of a white Christmas

I always imagined Christmas with everything covered with snow, cosiness at home and the whole family gathered together. Sadly this strange year we got no snow in Vienna (as usual) and travels to meet the grandparents is out of the question due to the Covid restrictions. We also used to travel to the Alps for some skiing every year, but as it seems that will also not be possible now. But I compensate the lack of the snow white feeling by wearing white-cream outfits.

I wear all white more often in summer, but like now, when it’s very grey and cold for so long, I feel like going for something brighter. White outfits immediately make you look fresh and lift (at least for me) the mood. In order not to look like a snow hare, I added a cream jacket and shoes to the otherwise all-white cozy soft Zara trousers and shirt. Meanwhile I was not eager to wear this type of trousers as they make the legs appear wider, but they are really very comfy.

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.

Jogging pants trend

Although originally known as jogging pants when introduced by Adidas, nowadays they find their use in nearly all areas of styling – they even get some front rows in the fashion weeks. If casually styled for the every-day use, or nicely combined in an elegant business outfit – they seem to fit everywhere.

If you still wonder where did the joggers trend come from, must have missed the whole „athleisure“ movement that has been all over the place lately. „Athleisure“ obviously is a combination of „athletic“ and „leisure“, which leads to the style working well both for the free time, as well as for the office.

To achieve a modern look, a statement piece like the jogging pant should be combined with classic items like coats, shirts and even high heels. As it seems, nowadays the sport outfits have become popular also outside of the fitness studios and the open air tracks.

My outfit today, shot in my „still-work-in-progress“ blogger room, consists of tender mint Pimkie jogging pants, a casual Alcott white hoodie with a classic Zara elegant pink shirt underneath. The final touch are my nike sneakers, all combined in a fashionway.

Jeans forever

No matter time of the year or the year itself, jeans are always in season.

I have vivid memories of my childhood how different the jeans were – classic or special, stonewashed, high-waisted with a button-fly, bride or loose tapered legs. And as the fashion tends to come back after some years, now we have the high waisted jeans back, just like in the old times.

I found those 80‘s skinny, slim fit, high waisted jeans in horizon blue by Zara and almost felt the fashion from the times of my mother. There is one small difference though – in the past, when my grandma saw a cut or a hole in my jeans, first thing she said was it needs to be patched – now those are made intentional and fashionable.

I matched them with my favourite black – a black stretched Zara body, a black Michael Kors blazer, black boots and as a final touch a cute brown bag from MONKI with a brown Gucci belt. All in all a casual outfit, matched in a fashionway.

Cute dress and casual plain boots

A pair of boots are year-round wardrobe staples both for warmer or cold months – from classic white boots to the over the knee ones. Such are the timeless combat boots – a season-less pair which work with any outfit – even with a nice dress.

I have always considered that a nice black dress matches in the best way with heels but depending on the occasion it can work great with boots too. As I am so much in love with my super comfortable MONKI black boots (that I featured in an earlier sports outfit post), this time I rounded up another style of outfit with a black Zara flounce, volan dress of course in a fashion way.

There’s nothing like a pair of chunky black boots to add some edge to a cute dress.

The boots season has arrived

At fall-winter time I love comfort in choosing the shoes but always combined with femininity when making the outfits. This pair of MONKI Boots are one of my must-haves for cold days and I am really in love with them. In any case a leather look jacket is a choice that fits to most of my outfits, and another must-have. As a black lover, today I made my look all in black – black short Zara top, leather look Calzedonia cycling shorts, Pull & Bear black leather look jacket, MONKI black boots and a little cute black H&M bag.

But, no matter the choice of color, let your light shine in a fashionway!

Blazers are not only for a business look

Blazers are often considered super restraining and as something for colder weather. I tend to disagree – blazers are great and can be used all year long – have a look at this white one with wrinkled sleeves for example – it’s a great piece that could be matched with different outfits every season.

No matter how you wear them, blazers truly are wardrobe essentials. This one I wear with a beige nude top, short jeans and nude heels. I topped it off with a long Pandora necklace and a matching Hermes belt. Of course this look is not strictly business, as a blazer would suggest, but can be casual, street and undemanding. In fact, blazers are being worn more and more in a casual sense than in a professional one.
