Hey, Stylish!

Happy 4th of July all the stylish people from the US! As you know, it’s a tradition to wear the flag abbreviatures for the celebration and I am so happy to experiment with it. The flag theme has always been the inspiration for many designers and you can notice this trend in Balenciaga‘s and Balmain‘s collections. If you want to adopt this trend in real life, try to use it with a humor and mix it up with accessories (in my case a Breton hat). I think the most interesting inspirations are from:

Hey Stylish!

The summer is almost over and I definitely need to talk about must-have shoes of this season: gladiator sandals.  Gladiator sandals with extravagant design could become a statement piece of the outfit, so keep it simple. Monochromatic and neutral colors would be great decision for picking up gladiator sandals since they “cut” the proportions of the leg and potentially can make your legs look more corpulent.  Some high-fashion inspiration for you from Alexander McQueen:

Hi Stylish!
Who said that witch costumes are only for Halloween? We witches, have a fashion moment. Pull out your Fedora hat,dark lipstick and long dresses, it is such a must have trend. I start watching American Horror Story and I absolutely love it. I got my inspirations from the third season “Coven”. If you are not familiar with it, here are some inspirations:

Hello my stylish friends!

Oversized clothes are not baggy anymore! Perhaps “right” oversized outwear or sweater can make you look petite and flatter your look.However it all comes down to balancing out proportions. If you choose oversized top or sweater, the more fitted the rest of your outfit should be.Here are some runway inspirations for you:

From my previous posts you already know about my love to the 90’s style. Today I was inspired by the baby-doll dresses,which along with several other fashion items of the 90’s,have made a comeback in our time.Here is the evidence:
