Hey, Stylish!

I am so happy that Fall is finally here and the fall-winter colors are finally appropriate to wear. My most favorite fall color so far is gray that you can see at Marni’s and Alexander Wang collections. Gray can make any cheap clothing look more presentable and polished, just make sure the cut is flattering. The best perks of gray that it is the  universal color that would enhance any other color and hue! I leave you with cool inspirations:

Hey, Stylish!

The furry shoe is the very controversial trend, but I really love it.  I truly believe that the shoe makes the whole outfit and you can rock the furry slipper or feather mocassins with anything…even the workwear, leather jacket or the evening gown. Though, I would really recommend wearing it with simple and clean silhouettes to balance up the wild look. You can also choose the closed toe models to highlight the quirky nature of this trend. I leave you with some inspiration:

Hey, Stylish!

The gingham has been so popular Spring 17 and this Summer that you can see this print in any store and collection. I decided to pair my gingham Victoria Beckham x Target suit with the polka dot Jeffrey Campbell platform to bring some edginess to the very preppy and polished print. I would recommend pairing the graphic prints with a pop of color, for example, mega trendy red color to enhance the contrast. I also put together some of the outfits for you as a fresh perspective how to transition your gingham into Fall season:

Head to Toe Velvet or Five Trends in One

Hey, Stylish!
Velvet has been a huge trend since Fall 2015 and is still being seen on multiple runways. However, comparing to the velvet inspirations from 2015 the silhouettes and cuts are more sophisticated and now it is totally common to see shoes and accessories in velvet as well as all clothing possibly imagined. In my today’s look, I combined five trends in one: velvet+wrap dress+fakefur+turban. If you get your inspirations from the runway as I do, you can check out velvet in many unpredictable variations:

And the most interesting part about it is that you can mix and match all the items and silhouettes together, creating a cohesive and ultra trendy look.

The Exaggeration

 Hey, Stylish!

How to wear Dolce and Gabanna without actually wearing it? Here is the formula: all black+ feminine cuts+exaggerated forms and silhouettes. I think the third variable in this equation is the most important. I am a big fan of good drama, so exaggerated detailing can bring some new feelings to simple clothes. Just take my look: a simple black sandals are upgraded with a feather trim,  a sweater is detailed with bows and my glasses are embellished with flowers- simple forms spiced with exagerated detailing.

As usual, some of my observations and inspirations. This time from D&G:

Hey Stylish!

Today’s look was inspired by new trend -humor fashion. More and more fashionistas relax their outfits with quirky and unique accessories to take away some seriousness from the outfits.  The fastest way is adding a pair of unusual sunglasses, which instantly elevate the look and make it feel that you are stylish without even trying. Another way would be jewelry and clutches, even a bag  charm  would work.  Here are some inspirations for you:

Hi Stylish!

I am obsessed with Advanced Style blog. If you have never heard about Iris Apfel and Valerie Von Sabel you definitely need to check out this blog that captures bold and elegant style of older New Yorkers. It is interesting that the older fashionistas have more courage to mix prints and wear bright accessories. That courage makes their style unique and unrepeatable; what is impossible to say about “style” perception that we have nowadays. I feel that we assume that “style” is a synonym for “hype”. That is why Pinterest and Instagram are full of Kardashian family clones that look the same.

My today’s look was inspired by the way Advance style ladies mix prints, according to certain rules:

1.Bolder=better

2.Fabric has to match (wool with heavier textures, silk or chiffon with lighter)

3. Add a resting point ( a part of your outfit where an eye can rest, in my case the rest point are my shoes)

Enjoy some inspirations from Advanced Style:
