Velvet Shoes – This season’s must have trend

The Fall/Winter 2016 season bring back a texture we seamed to forgot in the past years: the velvet. Everything this season will be covered in velvet, from dresses, to blazers and trousers, lingerie or chokers.  Misterious, sexy, glam and uber-trendy, the must have pieces of the season have at least a touch of velvet.

While the main problem with this texture is that it really needs to be high quality, otherwise it will probably look cheap – and we don’t want that , it also can make you look bigger than you actually are. So, to solve this issues and not give up on this lovely trend, I advice you to take a look at the velvet shoes on the market this season.


A pair of velvet shoes  is just the item you need to embrace the fall trends, but also keep your usual style in place. They are also versatile, so you can mix them up with any outfit of your choice, because they go perfectly well in the day and in the night, from casual look to super elegant ones.

I personally love the velvet sandals, I this they work best with this noble and elegant texture. On the other hand, I also love slippers and loafers, which I can mix with a pyjama set for a casual look. alexandre-birman


Of course you will find stilettos,  70’s inspired boots or over-knee boots, sneakers, all in velvet, you’ll be able to choose your favorite from a wide range of models.

In the end, because I’m really intro flats lately, I must show you this pair of velvet pointed flats by Paul Andres, in a perfect shade of dark blue. Aren’t they beautiful?


Anyway, whatever you will choose, I do advice you not to wear more than 1 piece of clothing in velvet in your outfit. It may look good on the catwalk, but It’s a little too much for every day life, no matter the occasion. Wear a pair of velvet shoes and mix it with denim, lace, silk, cotton, maybe even cashmere in the colder days, whatever you think it works for a stylish outfit.

PS: I think velvet shoes are here to stay, at least for the next 2 seasons so they just might be a good investment!

This season must have color – khaki

Each season has his strong points, promoted, loved and easy to recognize cause everyone is wearing it!

Individually, I guess each fashion lover is taking home the trends she loves and feels more close to and then adapt them to her or his personal style.

For instance, this season some of us rediscovered the 70’s trend, so they buy flare jeans, high platform shoes and shinny tops. Others stay true to a minimal take on fashion, sticking to the eternal, but forever trendy black and white combo.

I am pretty sure you experienced it more than once and it will happen again! A new season, new trends, incredible outfits to wear, new crush!

When I thought about writing this post I was under the green obsession of Khaki. It’s been familiar for a couple years now, but I’m telling you, this season it’s killing it!  And I expect to have at least 4-5 fuul outfits in this shade to wear all summer long!

Fall Winter 2016/2017 Trends – New York Fashion Week

So here we are! Spring fashion weeks are coming to an end and it’s time to take an overview on what happened  on the runways.  What are Fall’s Trends? Which collections will be sold out? What can you add to your wardrobe?

Though I am more a believer in a coherent personal style than into following trends by any means, I cannot say I’m not anxious to see what the new season brings and what could be my wardrobe additions.  It’s actually exciting to see the shows, to plan some outfits or to completely identify yourself with a designer’s proposals.

I already made a selection of my favorite shows and outfits, so let’s see what trends we’ll follow next season! We’ll start with New York, were the Spring fashion weeks debuted.

Spring/Summer 2016 trends or how to simplify your wardrobe

Each new season we ask ourselves the same old questions: what trend should I follow, what clothes should I keep and what should I buy, etc?

Well, for Spring/Summer 2016 I think the best rule to follow is to simplify you wardrobe. Why? Because in a review of the fashion shows for the new season, I can draw one simple conclusion: the silhouettes become lighter, the fabrics softer and shapes more relaxed.

The general feel is of a more relaxed fashion approach, completed by flowy items, from head to toe, from the tops to the trousers and skirts.

This season, over-structured designs are replaces by loose pieces. Designers seem to love this new relaxed, comfy way of dressing, connected more to the contemporary way of life.    Continue reading
