WHAT TO WEAR AS A GUEST TO A LATE SUMMER WEDDING

August 19, 2019

Receiving a wedding invitation is always exciting! Having friends or a family member getting married to the person they love it’s a special event that no one wants to miss.

My friend David is getting married soon, and as the date is coming closer I am thinking about what to wear to a wedding in September. Especially for late summer weddings, the choices are easier than in midsummer’s crazy heatwave. In late summer there is no coat to center the outfit around like there would be for a winter wedding, so there are more options to sift through. If you’re feeling confused about what you should wear as a guest to an end of summer wedding, here I want to share my favorite options and some tips how put together the perfect outfit in no time.

CITY WEDDING
Chic uptowngirl

Want to be the stylish guest in black with top-and-trousers and bring some serious fashion flair? Look for minimalistic, tailored trousers and pair it with an interesting statement top. Dare to be the emphasis on glamour and femininity!

Unique tailoring

Embrace the ultra-feminine and unique look with an asymmetric stretch-crepe peplum tunic and stretch-crepe flared pants from the London-based Safiyaa. This look guarantees an instant sophisticated elegance, elevated by Miu Miu sandals and Attico feather-trimmed beaded silk pouch.

Modern pastels

Pastel shades at weddings are the best choices, but if you want to be different and look good, you’ll need to update your approach. Reach for a classic frame midi dress, in the season’s most talked-about color – pink, then add statement earrings and a sleek leather bag or a clutch.

COUNTRY WEDDING
Sophisticated florals

You’ll be safe is you choose florals for a wedding. Opt for classic shapes with subtle twists like this beautiful asymmetric ruffled printed crepon midi dress. Ruffles or fluted sleeves for a next-level ladylike style – adding a classic pair of sandals, a clutch and gold jewelry.

Country pastels

Pastels go hand in hand for a wedding venue. Opt for a simple halterneck Lyocell-blend dress with statement accessories for an innately feminine look.

Short but sweet

As much as midi lengths may look appropriate for a wedding, a shorter length can be just as elegant, depending on the weddings location and the theme. With Zimmermann printed linen mini dress and add matching accessories for a pretty green theme.

DESTINATION WEDDING
Simply chic

If you prefer your looks muted rather than bold colors? Go for a neutral colors with matching accessories. This dress hits the sweet spot between resort and polished elegance, as well as will look just elevated enough to work with elegant but also smaller heels.

Luxe bohemian

Who doesn’t love a beautiful wedding location, with breathtaking sunset view? A perfect excuse to try something a little more daring such as tropical prints, off-shoulder dresses, and beautiful summer accessories. Add a pair of oversized shades and a crochet clutch, then finish with a pair of heels that you can kick off while you dance the night away.

Beach glam

This look takes me to a Greek Island wedding destination. A wrap-effect floral-print silk-chiffon maxi dress is perfect for a beach wedding. Keep your accessories low-key to avoid looking overdone, so stick to bare leather sandals, pearls and a handcrafted clutch from white rattan.

HOW I TREATED MY ANXIETY NATURALLY

August 13, 2019

This is probably the most vulnerable and personal article I am sharing with you today. Have you ever heard about anxiety and do you know how it feels? It happens suddenly, and you feel a period of excessive worry. You start worrying about everything, even about the things you have to do. You worry about your responsibilities at work, and all the obligations you have in your personal life. Then the constant aching feeling that you are not doing enough disturbs you, and so the blockage of letting go of the fear becomes very difficult.

#PLASTICFREEPLANET: LET’S CARE TOGETHER

August 10, 2019

As much as I love to talk about fashion and cosmetic industry, there is nothing more I care about than our planet we live in. We need to protect the ocean that gives us the oxygen to breathe, that regulates the climate and brings us clean water to drink. There is ONLY one ocean that covers our planet we live in.

A 2014 study estimated that 8 million metric tons of plastic trash enter the sea from land every year. 90% of the plastic is not recycled and this creates a major problem. Why? Because plastics are synthetic chemicals that should not exist in our planet. Most plastics are not biodegradable (meaning the bacteria cannot break them down into harmless components the way it happens to the paper or wood). The worse happens when plastic ages; the sun’s light and heat break the plastic into smaller and smaller pieces. This tiny plastic confetti, along with larger pieces of floating plastic, creates a dangerous problem to our health and our planet .

NO SWEAT, NO STRESS: WHY I TRIED miraDRY?

June 24, 2019

Have you ever heard about hyperhidrosis? Today I want to explain my story. Excessive underarm sweating always affected my life, until I decided to microwave my underarms two years ago. I grew up in South East Europe, more precisely in Kosovo, where temperatures would reach 45 degrees from June to September. I always felt embarrassed to wear something colorful that showed the wet marks under my arms. Sometimes even in the coldest days of winter in Vienna, I’d have wet marks under my arms due to stress or being nervous.

FASHION MEMO: THE 90s SLIP DRESS

June 13, 2019

The ’90s signature style of supermodels and celebrities made a major comeback in the last years. Certainly the slip dress has a long history, since the French queen Marie Antoinette caused a scandal wearing a simple white camisole dress when she was painted by Elisabeth Louise Vigée Le Brun in 1783.

FASHION MEMO: HOW TO WEAR A LINEN SUIT?

June 8, 2019

After velvet and silk, linen is my favorite fiber. This season linen is chicest than it has been ever before. It’s derived from the flax plant, so it’s a natural, sustainable material, and ethically produced. Super quick to dry and cool to the skin, linen remained the most important fiber of the Mediterranean and Near East. Ancient Egyptians used it for everything from clothing to pharaonic vestments, bedding, furnishings, and a wide variety of sacks and bags as well as the burial wrappings.
