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:

Total Leather

Hi Stylish!

Leather has been always been one of the most favorite fabrics of designers like Balenciaga, Gucci, Ulyana Sergeenko. It is one of the hardest material to work with because of its organic nature and stretching properties. When I visited the most famous fabric store in the nation-Mood in NYC, I was impressed by the variety of leather and vegan leather in every color possible that exist nowadays. I am a big fan of black leather though, because it looks much better with moderate wear. This season leather can be seen in different silhouettes, starting with pencil skirts and ending with camisole dresses! (there is one in Zara right now on sale-here) For my outfit I decided to combine ultra trendy culotte bottoms with classic vintage leather top. Here are some of my inspirations:

Translucent Transperency

4.jpg2.JPG1.JPG3.JPG

Hey stylish!

Summer is definitely time to experiment with colors and textures and learn how to mix them. This season transparent and translucent fabrics is huge trend that would be around for next seasons too. However, not everyone has a courage to wear the translucent top or skirt, and let’s be honest it is not appropriate for work or school. In this look I am wearing my favorite vintage over sized top with mom’s jeans to make it look fresh and sporty rather than “aggressively sexy'” that transparency of fabric can create. I would transition this look to more appropriate for school or any public event by adding a camisole underneath or a crop top. I enjoy this new trend of transparent translucency that could be so translucently transparent!

Here are some inspirations for you from these season translucent trends:

Hi Stylish!

If anyone still here, I want to apologize for a long break. Since I have a little bit of free time during  summer, I will update on the outfits and trends I found interesting and worth talking about.

Back to the trends. Spring is time for floral prints, which is an obvious, cheesy way to update your look for spring or summer.  However, Sp16/SS16 trends are requiring abstract  representation of floral as well as hyper realistic.  You can find photo realistic floral prints in  Jenny Packman’s spring collection:

more abstract, almost flat and very “patchwork” in Gucci’s:

Gucci-2016-Spring-Summer-Mens-Campaign-003

and very feminine, watercolor florals in  Simone Rocha’s:

 

So even if you think that florals are predictable for summer, the representation of it is quite different and changes from season to season.

 

                                                            Back,

Hippie Silk

Hey stylish!

All you need is love and…some summer outfit. Hippie trend has been a go-to summer style for over five decades. In order to add some modern touch to your “peaceful” outfit, you should accessorize it with edgy pieces.  Try sunglasses or a glamorous hat. As usual, fabulous inspirations for you:

Hyper Forms

Hey stylish!

I am fan of fashion and I like to treat it as art. The most important people in art are creators. There are many fashion creators that inspire me, but Viviene Westwood is my  real muse. If anyone is not familiar with her talent, shame on you! Vivien Westwood, the most creative fashion designer and stylist (by the way she put together looks for Sex And The City  and Devil Wears Prada) places emphasize on hyper forms. My today’s look is inspired by the hyper forms of  Vivien Westwood’s masterpieces. Here are some inspirations for you:
