THE OFFICE-WEAR UPDATE: STATEMENT SKIRT

March 19, 2019

While statement skirts are nothing new, they’re still coming back every season in different styles and shapes. Finding a statement skirt that provides versatile styling options, and doesn’t require any effort in the morning – this eye-catching piece will definitely save you. On the SS19 runaway shows designers presented different styles, cuts, colors, and lengths of effortlessly chic skirts. From asymmetric-ruffled styles to classic silhouette, power prints and modern details, you can pair the different pieces even with a simple white top and still look stylish.

A fitted skirt with a high, pleated “paper bag” waist, and a belt with a buttons down front is my current favorite. I find it perfect to wear from the office to Saturdays spent at the museum and beyond. Here are few styling notes:

ONE PIECE

Don’t buy a matching blazer and skirt, but try to find the best individual pieces that you can wear as separates. Start with the skirt, then choose a different top and accessories that compliment each other. Whether through colors or textures, but don’t be afraid to look perfectly imperfect.

LOOK FOR SOMETHING SPECIAL

Instead of shopping for simple skirts, look for something special with a Marilyn Monroe version that was made to wiggle around. Find a detail that makes the skirt be the focal point of the outfit, or in embellished style with feathers and sequins. A head-turner statement skirt you want to put on right away.

BREAK THE FASHION RULES

The statement skirts are a great way to start embracing your personality and don’t be afraid to be different. Start playing with the style of the skirt, for example: if your skirt is with polka dots, combine it with a floral top. If you’re wearing a sequin skirt, dare to match it with a oversized sweater, or if your skirt is more simple, then choose a colorful blazer to make it look more artistic.

BALANCE

If you’re looking to update your statement skirt and with which shoes to wear, you probably think of classic pump first. A pair of sneakers works well to balance any kind of a skirt and still look stylish all day long.

Here are some of my favorites that I found in my search:

A TRAVEL GUIDE TO MÉRIDA, MEXICO

February 3, 2019

The Yucatán Peninsula is more than a white-sand-beach exotic destination. This area has so much to offer, such as the unique and vibrant city Mérida. When I planned to visit Mexico, I definitely wanted to make a short trip to Mérida, which is the capital and largest city in Yucatan state in Mexico. Though it’s called “The White City” (named after its limestone buildings), Mérida has the kindest people, eye-catching colonial architecture, a unique heritage, charming museums, art galleries, great traditional Mexican food and many more.

WHAT TO WEAR IN MÉRIDA, MEXICO

February 2, 2019

Tomorrow you’ll finally read a new travel guide about the cultural capital of the Yucatán, Mérida. This city has a rich colonial history, with old narrow streets, broad plazas, impressive museums and it’s a great place to explore. I have a comprehensive list of places, where to eat and what to see, which I will share with you tomorrow on the blog. But first let’s talk about what to wear in Mérida?
What I saw, people do “dress up” especially in the evening. However, to dress up for brunch or dinner, I brought lot of pastel and colorful dresses, combined with colorful jewelry, flat shoes and a pair of wedges for the evening. As well as some nice color co-ordinated swimsuits for the pool, and vacation accessories such as hats and sunglasses.

THE TIMELESS & CONTEMPORARY ART-DECO APARTMENT IN MOSCOW

January 6, 2019

In the heart of Moscow’s historic city center, Leyla Uluhanli, of Leyla Uluhanli Interiors, designed her own apartment in wonderful neutral shades and a minimal retro-chic style. Even though the apartment is more than 270 square metres large with four-metre ceilings (13 feet), the aparment still had a little sources of natural light. So, Leyla Uluhanli had to come up with a new floor plan and mirrors.

THE MEGA MOISTURIZING OVERNIGHT MASK

December 26, 2018

A lot of women around the world don’t ask estheticians “How can I look younger?”, but “How can I look less tired?”
Fighting the skin fatigue starts with the everyday routine. Often we forget the health benefits of sleeping, meditation or have yoga flow for a quality night sleep. Between lot of stressful deadlines, appointments, and stressing about everything we have to do tomorrow,  getting the recommended ‘beauty sleep’ – isn’t always possible.

THE OFF-DUTY LOOK: OVERSIZED SOFT COAT

December 25, 2018

It’s Christmas Day and I hope you are enjoying the last days of 2018 with your loved ones and having a wonderful time. Following yesterday’s post, I want to share the whole look today. The only cover-up you need this season is a wonderful soft coat. Whether it’s faux fur, shearling or felt, this season’s cold weather shouldn’t give any excuse for letting your sartorial standards slip away. Wearing the seasons favorite TERRACOTTA palette, I can’t get enough of chocolate brown tones. This color is softer than black, and it’s just so sweet.

A great coat is definitely the cornerstone of every stylish woman’s wardrobe. Layer it over knit separates, knit dress, sweater, as well as with the belt to define your frame.
