Knitwear is the champion of this seasons apparel. From cashmere to wool, simple to pattern knitwear, oversized to crop sweaters, this season you can find knitwear in every kind of shape and style. I am into all kind of knitwear, but mostly I love fine cashmere knits that gently rest on the body. They fit so perfectly, like a hug, especially the all over knitwear in crispy fall days.
Ever wondered how Parisian women look so chic even in a simplest outfit? It’s because style is integrated in their DNA, without even being aware of it. As Coco Chanel herself once said: “La mode se démode, le style jamais“, means that fashion goes out of fashion, style never does. Visiting Paris often taught me a lot about Parisian style, and the number one rule of Parisian style can be described in one simple word: effortless.
Parisian women are able to simply throw an outfit together, without taking so much time and effort. Wearing almost no makeup and create the ‘make-up no, make-up look’ from dusk till dawn.
For some empowering Working Girl vibes, the power suit is back and with full commitment for this season. From caramel to chocolate, all you need to do is find the right shade for you, or go tone-on-tone in a top-to-toe effect. Either one or block colors, strait or wide leg, well-tailored pants teamed with coordinating blazers have been seen on Fall/Winter 2018-2019 runaway shows. With fall fashion officially underway, there are plenty of new trends and styles to try now. The right trouser suit will make you feel better and stronger, and you should know it the second you put it on.
It should make you look taller, thinner, pulled together, and it should be your best look and feel safe to go for afterwork dinner and drinks. If you are going to stick to one new look this season, make it the pantsuit! Keep it sophisticated with stylish accessories: a simple black top, paired with elegant pumps, and gold jewelry. If you want a different look, then you can pair the blazer with jeans too.
Despite in today’s modern world, smartphone has become our daily time-teller, and the omnipresence of synchronized, digital devices suggests that the wristwatch is no longer a necessity. Personally, I still find a well-designed watch never looks outdated. In fact, some of the best can last an entire lifetime and even be passed from one generation to the next.
My first relationship with watches was fuelled by a classic silver timepiece combined with stainless steel with white dial, gifted by my parents for my sixteenth birthday. That timepiece became a part of me, and I loved wearing it everyday. So my love affair with timepieces can be considered very sacred, and by getting older, you realize that time is very precious. Almost all luxury watches can be described as wearable art, because most of them have a interesting history attached. Continue Reading…
If you’d asked me a year ago if I would ever stop wearing skinny or cropped jeans, I would probably say no! End of August I cleaned out my closet, and I am happy that many of my old jeans (cropped, skinny, destroyed, acid-washed, culotte-denim and Mom-jeans) are out.
From high fashion to high street, we all know that high-rise, vintage-inspired mom, non-stretch jeans are everywhere right now. They’ll probably not go out of style any soon, but lately I am wearing something totally different: relaxed, full-length jeans in straight silhouettes and ankle-length flares. A soft, high-rise option with a straight leg you can roll up on casual days even for work.
Here are the five must have jeans to rock this fall season:
Yes, you heard it right – Contouring Tights! I am not talking about the makeup effect you can wear on your face, but about the finest as well as the most innovative contouring tights that have ever been created. These are the world’s first contouring, compression tights, designed by make-up artists. The Contouring Tights use shadows and highlights the same way as face make-up, that creates a smooth, visually slimmer and perfectly defined shape so your legs look like they were photoshopped!

This year’s accessory comeback award goes to, Dior saddle bag. In early 2000s Dior’s iconic Saddle bag was seen on the arms of every ‘It’ girl – like Carrie Bradshaw, Paris Hilton or Beyonce. I was also one of them who had two Dior saddle bags and just when I thought this trends will never come back anymore, Maria Grazia Chiuri unveiled Dior’s latest AW18 collection at Paris Fashion Week and it was millennial gold.

Lilac is the new pink and nothing beats the head-to-toe modern and sophisticated lavender look. The fresh pastel shade was all over the SS18 shows, starting at Emporio Armani at London Fashion Week and Céline at Paris Fashion Week, as well as Tibi and Victoria Beckham at NYFW. But how do you wear the trend? This season, it’s all about keeping it paired back with clean shapes.
Ah, spring has finally arrived and it’s time to put all winter coats back in storage and replace it with cool, lightweight jackets. Today, I am sharing one of the most important pieces in my wardrobe, the classic Barbour waxed jacket. I have been wearing Barbour jackets since I was a teenager and I still love it. It’s my go-to jacket for casual errand running jacket, quick trips to a grocery store on early weekend mornings. But I am not going to deny it, sometimes I also wear it to my business meetings. So it’s one of those rare pieces you own and feel completely comfortable wearing it, in no matter what mood you’re in. Continue Reading…
