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

Try the Culottes pants

I always chose my clothes based on my body shape and always advice the ones around me to do the same, because it’s the best way to feel good about yourself and your clothes. This way, you can accentuate the body parts you’re most proud of and hide the ones you don’t really want to show.

Although I love lots of styles, I have to choose the right things to flatter my body. For exemple, I’m not really into ankle boots (with some exceptions) cause they cut my legs and they look shorter.

Anyway, when the culottes trend emerged, I absolutely loved it, but feared I couldn’t wear it due to my high and the constant need (or desire) to add some inches to my figure.

Going round and round in shops, I decided it was time to try a pair of culottes trousers and…what a match!!! High waist-ed, black, with the perfect length, it was love at first try!

Denim on denim

If we’re talking about spring trends, then denim is on top of the list. Conquering the catwalks all over the world, it will rule the street style this season.

Burberry, Stella McCartney, Tommy Hilfiger, Chloe are only some famous brands that used this wonder fabric in their spring collections, reaffirming the status of an already classic texture.

I’m sure that each one of us has a favorite pair of jeans, an-all-time-favorite denim jacket or a denim shirt that u cannot get rid of! I also have my favorites, but this time I decided to try a different kind of outfit:  a head-to-toe denim look.

Because I find it pretty difficult to add a modern an edgy touch to denim – because they are mainstream and basic – I chose an outfit that looked very catchy: a pair of culottes (very trendy these days) and an over sized shirt, from the same fabric ( from the latest AFMF SS2015 collection).

Camasa alba masculina, aliatul ideal

camasa

As putea povesti cam cat de greu e sa gasesti o camasa alba, simpla, masculina, insa eu tocmai am elucidat misterul.

Una din piesele pe care le consider indispensabile in garderoba feminina este camasa LUI. In cazul fericit, poti imprumuta ( a se intelege ” pe viata”) camasa iubitului sau poti cumpara una – placerea de a o purta nu va mai fi aceeasi, insa tinutele vor arata la fel de bine.

Am tot cautat o camasa pe masura mea, am incercat si prin dulapul LUI, dar nu s-au potrivit masurile, insa nu am avut mare succes.

Am dezvoltat o adevarata obsesie pentru camasa alba, simpla, barbateasca, purtata in aproape orice context: cu fusta pix la birou, cu jeansi boyfriend in weekend, cu pantaloni cu talie inalta si stiletto seara, etc.

Merge la aproape orice si oricand, cu manecile suflecate, cu primii nasturi deschisi, innodata in talie sau lasata pe dinafara si prinsa cu o centura subtire.

Mie personal imi place sa o port cu pantaloni si cu o pereche de pantofi cu tocul inalt, iar mai nou am acceptat in garderoba esarfele subtiri (Prada a facut furori sezonul trecut cu esarfa-cravata, o vei regasi din plin si in sezonul actual, dar si in colectiile iernii viitoare, deci e investitie).

Am gasit cateva modele de camasi si pentru tine:

This Winter’s boots

1I think I found the perfect casual, winter boots. Flat black boots, with a very small wedge, just enough to keep warm, with side slits and a very gentle interior, my new Staccato boots are this winter’s favorites.

They also had a huge impact on almost everyone I know, being more than admired. Even I didn’t thought they will be so appreciated, but a lot of people actually stopped me and asked me were are they from!
