Hey Stylish!

All we know the stigma that one should not wear white after Labor day, which is a complete false. I truly believe that fashion right now has no rules, gender or boundaries. So please, wear white and all other colors whenever or whatever you want ( maybe just avoid wearing white at someone else’s wedding at least). In today’s look I was not only inspired by my favorite color+ texture technique ( white+metal) but also by the pleated skirt trend that is so hot this season.  Wear the pleated skirts with the bulky sweaters or the longline classic coats to enhance the gentle nature of pleats or go crazy with texture as I did in my look. Here are some inspirations for you:

Hey, Stylish!
I am very happy to have an opportunity to come back and continue tracking down the evolution of my own style and share some of my visual inspiration with you. I like to think of myself as a person who does not do brands or trends, rather wearing what I feel is beautiful. However, it is really hard not to follow fashion, even though the style is the priority. The spring season was defined by three main trends: ruffles, stripes, and metal. However, I always liked metallic hues and always considered them being almost the “new nude”color. Surprisingly, the silver hue with that liquid quality works with almost everything. My favorite combination would be white and silver. As usual, I am very inspired by the runway, since it is most an art form, rather than design. For today’s’ look I was inspired by:
