Hey, Stylish!

Capes are coming back this winter and  I am so happy to score this 70’s cape that makes any outfit feel so Fall-ready. I am a big fan of capes because it gives that royal elegance to any look, however, it definitely adds up the volume to body proportions, that is why I advocate for thick textures that hold the form like Chloe and Alberta Ferretti below. You can also experiment with the length of the capes and wear them over other coats and jackets.

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!

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:
