‘Cropped between colours’


The new trouser length…we are wearing it cropped:)

How do you wear it?

Welcome back to your fashion column!

This week we are going to discover the best way to wear cropped trousers:)

Personally I find shorter length trousers easier to wear!

Looking good and feeling great when wearing trousers should not be a difficult thing, but what we definitely always need to take into consideration is our body shape and whatever the style makes us show off our best features.

Most of us are used to a certain cut…may that be skinny, boot-cut, straight and sometimes is hard to get out of that familiar ground and step into a brand new territory!

This Spring/Summer catwalk goes over the boundaries and cuts everything above the ankle, so get ready to wear it:)

Key styles to wear with cropped trousers:

  • As it gets skinnier to the bottom, it will do wonders for your silhouette
  • One of the best ways to get the most out of this cut is to wear them with heels but at the same time they will go with anything from flats to brogues
  • Mix and match with a tailored jacket or a cropped top

Cropped trousers are the biggest and best style so far for this year’s trend, they come in every design possible from day wear, street, office or parties with one purpose – to replace anything else in your wardrobe:)

What do I love the most is that they also can be found in a variety of fabrics which makes them even more practical…my favourite is jacquard but I would never say no to a monochrome print either:)

Five things you should never forget

  1. Keep it simple but add a bit of flash – a statement t-shirt and a plain colour heel or an every day shirt and flats with some personality:)
  2. Autumn/Winter tip – Pair it up with boots and oversized sweater – you cannot go wrong
  3. Skinnier the better
  4. Try something new – wide leg cropped might be the change you’ve craved for
  5. Get the right cut and it will become your wardrobe favourite

Here are some suggestions for mix and match footwear:)

Enjoy a fashionable week:)

Love,

Julia

‘The view from the (w) edge’


” A girl’s best friends…shoes, shoes and shoes “

Did you ever counted how many shoes you have?

I’ve been planning that for a while…I am sure it’s not going to happen for one single reason…I know I don’t have enough:))))))!

In every fashion post I have the same advice when it comes down to choose your wardrobe…

Fashion has no purpose if it’s not a true expression of you!

Always feel good being you !

This weeks fashion post it’s very close to my heart, it brings together three things I simply adore: Red – Wedges –  Shoes.

The spring/summer of 2015 finds us totally in love with wedges. This year we have a colourful view on fashion and footwear it’s not very behind.

We pack up the black and grey, remove the dust from the box that says “Summer” and line up a brand new collection…might that be sparkly sandals, flip-flops or beautiful elegant wedges.

Personally I find wedges having the most comfortable heel…plus you can always dress it up or dress it down!

Most of us look at wedges and see it as a piece from the holiday wardrobe or just a pair of sandals you would wear casually. You might be right…but let’s improvise a bit:)

Look at a pair of completely closed up wedges…suddenly they become an option for a more formal outfit!

There are multiple colours available to play with…if you’re lucky and you can get away with wearing other than black and white, grey and cream as workwear…a bit of colour can be your next best friend.

Heels always make me feel so much more confident and let’s be honest, we all look better wearing them…wedges can be a more comfortable alternative for a more elegant look but at the same time more practical.

As you probably might know…my favourite colour is red:)

Red is not always the highlight of the catwalk but I always try to integrated within my other favourite oldies and newbies! From shoes to small accessories, never forget about what you really love the most, might that be a colour, a print or a comfort piece…always make it part of your own trend:)

Paging through some fashion magazines I am surprised how very little I can find practicality in outfit building… it’s an absolute given that fashion is made to look good but at the same time it has a purpose…

We tend to forget that the purpose of a trend/ fashion can be decided by the ones who wear it!

So be bold and decisive…choose to be stylish without the beauty discomfort!

Choose the shoes that love your feet…

Love the wedge…don’t live on the edge!
