Autumn faves

Autumn faves

  Since autumn has arrived, I decided to show you some of my (and what seems to be most of the fashion world’s) favorite trends. Just as a reminder, most of the pictures I post on my blog are either from Pinterest or vogue.com. So, let’s start:

  -Animal Print. Obviously, animal print has been around for quite some time, but this season, it’s everywhere. Everybody is wearing it and I think that is great, because it’s definitely in my top 3 autumn trends this year.

  -Sweater vests. I will be honest with you, in the beginning I thought they were heidious, but after I actually tried one on and saw some other ways of styling them I loved it. I mostly tried one on because I saw one on Clueless and since I love the movie, I tried it. I regret nothing.

-Straight-leg and flare pants. Whether it’s jeans or any other kind of pants, I think they look really stylish and put together. I actually bought a pair of flared pants from Zara and I love them so much. I totally recommend at least trying a pair on.

    -Slip dresses. I think I already talked about them before, but I have to bring them up again, because they are such a statement piece and they look so good on any type of body. I seriously need to buy one ASAP.

  -Doc Martens. These boots look good with literally any outfit. You could be wearing a fancy outfit or just a casual jeans and T-shirt outfit and the Martens would work with both of them. They are such a versatile piece and I adore them.

  -Blazers. I am obsessed with them. I have a bunch of blazers in my wardrobe and I love how they look on with everything. There isn’t a lot I can say about them, they are just perfect.

   Hope you enjoyed this post and I hope you got inspired by some of these outfits. Let me know which one you like most. Have a great day,

90s staples and outfits

Hi guys, lately I have been trying to find my style. I was scrolling through Pinterest and found this style that defined everything I love. The 90s/00s style is soo beautiful and it looks so aesthetically pleasing. Also, some of the 90s staples have come back stronger than ever. Here are some of them:

  • Slip dresses. I personally think these are the best type of dress. You can dress it up or dress it down. You can wear it with heels or combat boots. It’s just so versatile, i love it. Here are some ideas on how to style it:

  • High waisted mom jeans. I already own a few pairs and I have to say they are so comfortable and stylish. Some styling options:
Meet leanna the perfect high-waisted pant for everyday wear. tuck an easy-fitting top into these for easy sophistication.
  • Layering. Whether it’s spaghetti strap tops over t-shirts or vests over shirts, I think it looks stunning. It looks so put together and stylish. Styling options:
9 Ways To Rock a Turtleneck This Season
My favorite outfits that Cher wore in Clueless (1995)
  • Huge jackets. In the 90s they wore these really big jackets and windbreakers. They looked really cool, and today a lot of people still rock this trend. Styling options:

These are just a few of the trends from the 90s. If you wanna see some more or if you have some other examples, don’t hesitate to write them in the comment section. Have an awesome day,

Trendsetting

Trendsetting 

 This week I have been thinking, couldn’t really tell you why this popped into my head, but I was thinking about trends and trendsetting. I am not talking about the actual trends, that is for a later post. I mean the way trendsetting works.  

  First, I want you to think about it. How do you find out about the new trends? Through blogs? Instagram? Runway shows? For example, I research them in runway shows so that I can share them with you guys, but I also look on Instagram for hours at the so called ‘trendsetters’ .  

  Now, who are the trendsetters? They are influencers and people from the fashion industry, that post pictures, blog posts or magazines. Everybody follows or knows about at least one trendsetter.  

   What I am trying to get to here, is the way our generation is so easily influenced. If you are a fashion addict like me, you watch the runway shows, read Vogue etc. to hear about what’s knew. What I don’t understand is why there are so many people that choose wrong people or places to get inspired or influenced by. 

  For example, we all know, Americans have this layed back, chill way of dressing. I am not saying all of them do, I am talking about a majority. Americans prefer comfort, and there is obviously nothing wrong about that. A lot of Americans that travel to Europe are impressed by how much thought we put into our outfits and how put together we look. I, as an European, take that as a compliment. 

  What I don’t understand is why so many fashion influencers, that are supposed to set the trends, prefer to use the American way. Again, I am not saying their way is wrong, but if you work or are interested in the fashion industry, in my opinion you should look the part. If all of us started to go to meetings and parties in sweats, it would be like the fashion industry doesn’t exist. 

  My point is, that if we have so much influence over people and how they dress, why not motivate them to try and dress like ‘Europeans’. Look at the people that live in London, Paris, Milano etc.  

  I am not here to insult anyone; I am just simply speaking my mind. If we want to spread a fashion sense, why use the easier way. Anyone can wear a pair of sweatpants and a huge T-shirt, but that doesn’t make it stylish or fashionable. Don’t get me wrong, I also wear that type of clothing, but I do not consider it a stylish option. I consider it a stay at home, comfy outfit. 

   I know this post was way longer than the others, but I just had to put it out there. I know a lot of people will disagree with me, and I am okay with that, because everyone is entitled to an opinion. So please let me know what you think about this. Have a lovely day,

Season accessories

Since I did a 2020 trends post, I thought I’d do one about the accessories. So here it is:

Square toe shoes

Balenciaga

Square toe shoes have been a “thing” since 2019, but apparently it will go on in 2020.

Big hoop earrings

Versace

Hoop earrings are one of my favorite accessories. They are so pretty and a little bit edgy. I love them.

Platforms

Dolce and Gabbana

As a pretty short person, I can say platforms are a real life savior. I wear them every chance I get.

Necklace bags

Versace

I don’t really know what to call these and I also don’t really know what you would use them for, but they are pretty cute.

Spring/Summer 2020 trends

Since the year is almost ending, I think it’s only appropriate to be prepared for the new year with the upcoming trends.

As I didn’t go to any of the fashion weeks, I watched them online. Here are some of the trends of 2020:

Suits and blazers

Burberry,Versace,Chanel

You are definitely going to see a lot of suits and blazers in 2020. Most of the big fashion houses presented at least one suit or blazer in their runway shows. I think they are absolutely gorgeous and they are very versatile, because you can use for almost any occasion.

Tropical prints

Dolce and Gabbana,Versace

The tropical prints have also been all over the fashion runways. It’s so summery and fun, I think it’s a great trend. The colours are so vibrant and it seems as if they make you happy by looking at them.

Puffed sleeves

Chanel,Louis Vuitton,Tory Burch

Puffed sleeves are such a great detail for shirts, they change the whole dynamic of the outfit. They are one of the trends I am looking most forward to.

Neon

Versace,Balmain,Balenciaga

The neons are making a comeback, and I couldn’t be happier about it. The power of neon colours is so strong and their such a statement piece.

Sequins

Versace,Louis Vuitton

Sequins were everywhere in the fashion weeks. They are such a cool trend and also they can mix with almost everything. Not really my favourite only because I find them a little bit to out there for me, but I do enjoy them on other people.
