The word is ‘Dry’


Once upon a time ‘dry’ was for autumn…

When leaves fall

…and trees hit rock bottom.

‘Block it…with denim’


“Fashions fade, style is eternal.” Yves Saint-Laurent

2006-02 14_Fotor-1

Today’s post

What can you do with denim and the block heel?

Hello Fashion Lovers:)

I was thinking about practicality…can you be smart about fashion? Can you have one piece of clothing that shapes your whole wardrobe?

Well…let’s see!

I am in love with denim…I’ll be honest and admit that I gave it a go because this year it’s everywhere!

Guess what…I will probably keep denim as one of my favourite styles of all times:)

This week’s fashion post it’s about picking out one or two items from your wardrobe and create endless outfits!

I am sure you all are familiar with outfit building…it’s a terminology used most of the time in fashion retail.

Did you ever thought about how we notice things we like…how we decide to buy that top that we saw in the window display…? It’s all comes down to…outfit building!

2015-02 14_Fotor-1

We look at fashion differently if it’s put into context…would you notice that green bag on its own, or it’s more appealing because it’s part of an outfit?

The trend brings us a fabric, a style, a cut…we decide how we use that in our advantage:)

For this post my lead pieces are…THE DENIM JACKET…and…THE BLOCK HEEL!

2015-06-02 14_Fotor-1

Pick one or two key items from your wardrobe and start outfit building …you will soon realise that you become more smart about what to buy next…that you don’t actually need so many things to look good or even different every day!

2015-014_Fotor-1

Basic tips:

  • Wear what you love but don’t be afraid to try new things
  • I know fashion it’s complicated and not always to our own personal taste…that’s why, re-invent yourself
  • Know your body shape and your limitation…just because it’s in fashion, doesn’t mean you have to wear it
  • Don’t over do it…always keep it simple
  • If you feel good in it…you look good in it too
  • Think outside the box…you might just create the next trend:)

2015-06-0 14_Fotor-1

I like to have a few things that I always mix and match with the rest of my wardrobe:)

Think of a jacket you love…yesterday you’ve thought you can only wear it as part of a casual look…but today, you’ve put it next to a dress…and it actually looks quit amazing:)

When it comes down to fashion you need to be selfish…think what looks good on you and not the rest of the world…be smart and practical when you shop…no point in having too many things that you never wear!

In a nutshell….pick the right pieces and wear them more!

2015-06-02 14.34.07-1

Be creative…use your wardrobe to look good!

Use your favourite items in different styles…look casual and glamorous with the same piece!

2015-06-14_Fotor-1

Always feel good being you!

Love,

Julia
