Hey Stylish!

The story of the kimono has always intrigued Western world and took many forms in the way it is adapted in nowadays wear. We have seen many examples of the new silhouettes and textiles of many variations of the kimonos. I am actually a big fan of the traditional kimonos that are universally flattering. If you want to adapt more wearable look you can mix it with slip dresses (like I did) or with jeans for a more casual, eclectic look. As usual, I leave you with the freshest runway inspirations:

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:

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 friends!

Happy Fashionable New Year! What was your New Year outfit? I am obsessed with my folkloric dress which was a part of my outfit for New Year Eve party. It is important to understand that contemporary fashion trends are inspired by ethnic silhouettes and details, rather than being authentic costume. Mix your ethnic clothes with contemporary, sporty or classy shoes and accessories to avoid head to toe folk. Enjoy some inspirations from Dolce and Gabanna and Ulyana Sergeenko:
