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.

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.
Let me know what do you think about velvet trend!

Hey, Stylish!

Florals are so expected to be worn in summer, but there are thousands of ways to wear it unexpectedly. I am a big fan of Alessandro Michele’s politics toward new collections of Gucci house: a dash of vintage vibes, modern cuts and print on print, especially florals on florals or florals on an animal pattern. As you know, I like matching things and for me combining botanical print is the optimal solution for the unconventional way to wear print. I was inspired by a couple of gorgeous examples from the runway:
