Hey, Stylish!

A while ago I was very shy to use print on print but after last Prada’s collection, I was inspired so much by the daring, bold combinations that were weirdly pleasant and calming to the eye. If you want to use print on print and make it all come together harmoniously, you should use a formula: one print treated as a basic color+another as a complimentary. For instance, in my look, I treated leopard print as a basic color and stripes as a print itself and this clash created a calm, yet bold combination. I tried experimenting with the leopard print a while ago, but I think it was a much obvious combination. What do you think? If you need some inspirations, check out runway:

Hello stylish!

We all have these days when you do not want to put too much effort to dress up. You literally want to wear your comfortable pajama or bathrobe all day. However, I have a better solution for you. Go with a trendy robe coat to look chic and effortless at the same time. It is a perfect way to feel cozy and polished. Make sure that all other pieces of your outfit are simple and  composed with clear lines. As usual, some inspirations from runways:

Hi stylish!

It is no-brainer that pieces from men’s wardrobe are our best friends this season. However, flight jacket or “bomber” is a historical piece that can modify any outfit to THE outfit.Pair it with classical pieces or sport chic bottoms and you are a real pilot. Here is some inspirations for you:

Hello my stylish and gorgeous friends!

What can make any (even boring) outfit become a new trend? The answer is BOLD and VIVID colors! You can add neon yellow, green and hot pink to any combination of colors, and it will rock your basic outfit. However, remember that in this case your outfit will turn into funky and trendy look. My suggestion is to experiment with textures and create a “color base” for such bright colors. As usual, some inspirations for you:

Hello my stylish friends!

How about safari in January? Safari style in fashion is the compromise between comfort and chic. Usually safari style is associated with beige-brown palette, olive, khaki, but my suggestion is to mix it up with bold colors.Try to mix different textures to avoid cliche. For instance in my look, khaki cotton pants are mixed with silk shirt with oriental motives and woolen Theodora hat. Make it look adventurous and stylish in the same time. As usual, some inspirations from runways for you:
