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.

Plaid pants trend

The biggest, the best, better than the rest. Everyone sings with me. No? Okay. While I might be getting slightly ahead of myself here, what I want to say is fashion is just amazing. It takes one boring item and makes it the most beautiful and wanted thing in the world. That is the exact case with plaid pants, the pants that everyone is wearing these days. So, (you might want to join me this time) … the bigger, the best, better than the rest!!! Now it makes sense, doesn’t it?

Everyone is wearing plaid pants because they have this chic vibe to them. They’ll give you that off-the-clock fashion thrill. Some girls wear them with sneakers, some go for heels, some wear them relaxed and chic, while others go for sleek office formal styles. Plaid pants happen to look really, really good with your favorite t-shirts, sweatshirts, denim or leather jackets so you can indulge in both off-duty style rituals at the same time. Just pick your thing and roll with it.

Personally, I love the “notice me” chic style of the yellow Zara plaid pants in cigarette cut, slightly cropped, with green high top ACBC sneakers, and a white DYWWA t-shirt. Mixing it all up with statement yellow Diddi Studio belt, Kate Wood wooden watches and one of my favorite Tory Burch bag. Perfection for Friday office to girl’s night out.

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!

Outfit ikebana

There are some fashion trends that even the most style adept has trouble mastering with total confidence — like socks with sandals or double bags or candy-colored faux fur. But, there’s one recent trend that can be especially challenging: the print-on-print-on-print trend, which combines two or more patterns to exaggerate effect.
But, as we know, like keeping track of how many drinks you have had, limiting the number of prints in one outfit is no fun at all.
There is one in particular print mix which catches my eye and seemed impossible in the beginning: mixed bouquet print and polka dots.

Mixed bouquet may sound a bit like a weird idea for the outfit, but honestly, this spring 2018 print trend showed up as a combination and makeover of springtime typical prints. These types of pieces feel like they are not for people with limited imaginations at all. But you don’t have to have a stylist’s eye to pull off this kind tricky look. All you need is try to put together pieces from your wardrobe which seems to be impossible together to find your crazy perfect match — and a lot of attitude — and you’ll be mixing and matching spring’s best florals, dots, and stripes in no time.
This mix print is definitely on the tip of the tongue for the spring 2018 print trends for originality and beautiful composition and coordination. So, go on have fun! And make your own outfit ikebana.
