It’s raining, it’s pouring

IMG_9842It’s raining, it’s pouring, but that doesn’t mean your style credentials should be snoring. The good news is that raincoats have come a long way since the oversized and brashly colored mac you wore as a child.

In a countries with rain seasons a raincoat is something crucial to own. Especially if you bicycle on a daily base to get to A to B. If you’re looking for something to breathe new life into your wardrobe, then a printed Ekaterina Lambert PVC coat is definitely the route to take. It’s the kind of piece that will always elicit some sort of “where’d you get that?” response and pairs nicely with everything from contrast print pieces to a simple slip dress. And isn’t it the goal of the things that we buy – to make us bright, extraordinary, charismatic?b514eb25ba1cf54cc4acb0510287242IMG_9825898af47524241141c3c41c7431baea4bb95dfc249c0a896f5a5774f1325c5d9f6e0a6236f4c6052e1c0bc50c9501eIMG_9832

Go with the trend in PVC Ekaterina Lambert raincoat with artistic prints. It can easily be styled with both your favorite basics and something fancier.

The layer will keep you dry and add depth to whatever you’ve got on underneath.

Bring on the showers!!!

Oh! So white!

Fans of white?  Well, this summer is your time to shine! Yes, this season a total white look will be the chicest of outfits. The classic combination is modern, elegant and minimalist, instantly adds an elegant and sophisticated vibe, no wonder white-on-white look has taken over the streets as one of the hottest street style trends of the moment. The white shirt is a must for every wardrobe. White trousers are the item that comes to mind when spring begins. A pair of white heels or flats are a must for summer 2018. And it is a perfect time to swap our all-black uniform for this season’s all-white trend.

Wondering how you can mix them all together and rock the all white look? These are the four easiest ways to slay the total white look.

PLAY WITH LENGTHS
White can be unflattering, so wearing white in a right cut and proportions is key to pulling off the trend. Play around with proportions and lengths. Wear a classic oversized white tee combined with a masculine cut and long skinny jeans and a jacket. White but slender! Or palazzo pants with a high waisted wide leg and fitted top.

USE OF DIFFERENT MATERIALS
One of the ways to create a perfect total white look is to use different materials for the various pieces that make up the look. For example: lace, linen, cotton, silk etc.

BREAK IT UP
If the total white looks make you a bit uncomfortable, break it up! Wear colorful accessories, a purse or shoes like I did on this look. But better don’t wear more than one color otherwise it might ruin total white effect.

WEAR WITH NUDE OR METALLIC
And if you cannot make a total white look, combine it with nude or metallic accessories. Shoes and bags in these colors look great with total white.

Remember, if you don’t feel like daring with a monochrome, just know that white is the coolest of colors, even for accessories.

Why Fashion?

I have been criticized for trying to get attention from my appearance: “Why look good every day?” or “Why walk like on the runway?”, “Why try so hard?” People are asking me those questions since I discover the world of fashion (basically since 21 years ago) …
The answer is very simple: Fashion is that thing that saved me from being sad.
I’ve always cared about my clothes. When I leave my apartment, I like to look pretty for myself and people around, I want to make you feel something with what I wear. My ootd are always reflecting my mood in a way.

As well Fashion makes me braver. If I have a difficult day ahead or need to do an important speech or it’s a first parent meeting in my girl kindergarten (yes, that makes me even more nervous than applying for a job) or simply it’s one of this days when my stress levels have been through the roof, I open my wardrobe and think which outfit will make me feel happy and enjoy the day ahead. And when I find one I feel like “Ok! I can do that, or I can at least try”.

IMG_2865IMG_2870IMG_2876
No matter what happens with my life or career and wherever I go that heart of glamorous girl in Shanghai will never be gone. This is who I am, and it’s never been an act and it’s never been marketing. This is me all the way to my core and fashion is a big part of my life.

A good belt can make an outfit..

As a rectangle type figure, I am a big fan of belts to help define my shape. Over the years I have collected a few statement belts that I wear time to time to finish off an outfit with a little bit of flare and uniqueness. I love statement pieces. I’m attracted to unique, artistic, one-of-a-kind feeling they give to you. And if there’s one accessory that just screams #GirlBoss, it’s a wide, head-turning statement belt around the waist. Because a bold belt means business. It sends a message of don’t-mess-with-me confidence and can elevate a look from simple to impactful in just one step. And while a standard black or brown version should do the trick, if you want to take the styling one step further, I suggest opting for something unique.

For my look today, I wanted to go for a super simple outfit though I do think this would look good with a dress too. I dressed up a skin-hugging bodysuit and black jeans with a belt to take it from casual to put together. It feels sexy yet modern and adding this sleek black silk belt in between only adds a dose of bad-ass sophistication. It makes the two pieces come together as one, and creates a flattering, structured effect. And as I had very limited time this morning to decide on the bag to go together with my #ootd, I simply layered small belt bag under my belt.  First saw belts being layered last year in one of the shows and I instantly wanted to try it myself. Actually, I really like the way it came out.

Statement belts make a statement on their own, and best believe that when you put them on, everyone will be watching. And even if you are short waisted like me, do not let fashion rules determine what you can and cannot wear. Wear those belts! Tuck those shirts in! Find a way to make the body that does so much for you feel like something special and fabulous and not something you need to hide, change or try to mask.

What do you think of the statement belts making a comeback? have you found yourself warming up to the idea of sporting one? I want to know what you think!
