Happy 4th of July or How to wear a flag





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:

The Old New Story of Kimono




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:

White Out


Hi stylish!

Five decades ago, fashion icon Audrey Hepburn popularized white shirts with male silhouette. Thank you, Audrey! The white shirt is timeless, flattering and elegant staple like the little black dress. White shirts make you look crisp, clean and classic. There is no limits or rules how to wear white shirt trend, just remember to mix it up with color or texture to make your look more interesting.

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:

Hello my stylish friends!

As I mentioned in my previous posts- I am not a fan of leopard print.However, in fashion you never say never! Animal trend is a total must-have for Winter 2015.As fashionista I cannot resist my growing love to animal prints.My only one suggestion would be to keep the minimalistic forms, which are the best ways of expressing the beauty of animal prints.Here are some examples: Balmain, Wren, Givenchy

Hello my stylish friends!

Did you know that wearing red does not only attract attention from members of the opposite sex, but also increase your level of self-confidence? 

Incorporating bright red into your wardrobe is definitely not an easy task. My only one advice is to mix it with something neutral. Grey considered by artists and designers as a versatile color, which can compliment any other color of the pallet. Just be careful with the undertone of the grey color.For example if you are wearing Coca-Cola red, it is better to compliment it with warm grey.If you are wearing ruby red, combine it with cold, blueish grey. Here are some inspirations for you:
