Mixing Up


ENG: And the coat obsession doesn't stop: Zara launched their spring summer collection and I'm adding every coat they designed to my wardrobe -well at least in my mind-.
Last year the combination of camel/orange had it's big fashion moment, I however am late on the trend-wagon and have only recently discovered the ability of orange to add a twist to an otherwise boring outfit.
White shirt, tuxedo pants, open-toe sandals, structured bag, chain necklace - these are all fashion staples, nothing exciting, nothing trendy. The cream coat breaks up the monochrome color scheme and loosens up the sharp silhouettes with it's soft texture. A pop of color with Essie's "Meet me at Sunset" and voilà - ready for fashion week.

About shoes...

about shoes

New Year, New Trends - Shoe Edition

Leaves: Chunky Trainers. Les filles, I never quite understood this trend. Sure, they're comfortable and certainly contribute to that certain streetstyle credibility, but they are so unelegant. Much to my pleasure this 90' reference has no place on the trend shelf of 2015. Good bye !
Stays: The Slip-On's of course. Represented on nearly every fashion blog you can look at, they haven't yet floated into the range of low-end retailers (at least not where I live) but I bet by spring the majority of small-town fashionistas will flaunt their feet in the iconic no-shoelaces model.                                            (Rebecca Minkoff - Salli )
Comes: The white tennis shoe. No brand, no color, no funky extras. Just a plain white, smooth leather tennis shoe with off-white laces. Attention please: White Converse are known to look best when they are a little worn in - but not these!
                                         It's all about that brilliant white, fresh from the shop look.                                                                     (Sandro Athlete - Low Top Sneaker)
