When a pair of shoes transforms an outfit

A great pair of shoes can transform an outfit into a look in a matter of seconds! Shoes and bags are statement items, and the same outfit when worn with sandals, would look completely different with a pair of Stan Smiths or a pair of stiletto court shoes.

The way you accessorize an outfit can turn it into a full-on ‘look’, multiplying your wardrobe choices and making the most of your pieces.

This outfit Olivia Palermo wore the other day, for example:

It is a lovely look but, what made it remarkable for me, were the Alexander McQueen Embroidered Slippers! They change the entire vibe of the outfit!

It is something good to have in mind, especially for those “I have got nothing to wear” moments!

Great casual looks!

Pippa Middleton stepped out in a very good casual look in London last week. She was wearing a classic navy blazer, taupe jumper, collard blouse, skinny jeans, taupe suede loafers, Persol sunglasses and an Aspinal of London tote.

 

Also last week, the Duchess of Cambridge was at her sister house wearing another good casual look: Jonathan Saunders sweater, Zara jeans, Ray-Ban sunglasses and Superga plimsolls. Basic pieces can look very polished when used together, it is all in the styling of the outfit!

Quick and easy hairstyle

If you are in a hurry or/and you think you are having a bad hair day, a clasp (or barrette) is a great quick and easy way to fix it. It adds refinement to your hairstyle and can make you feel more put together, enhancing your confidence!

Great casual look!

I really liked the outfit Jessica Biel wore to run errands in LA, 2nd March, 2017! It is a very casual look, but the details made all the difference. The metal parts on the purse and on the shoe, combined with the leather jacket, gave some rock vibes to the whole outfit, but in a subtle way. It is very important to remember how accessories can easily change any look.

Tips to Wear Bracelets

Don’t be afraid to look like Wonder Woman! Chunky bracelets are an easy way to make a chic update on any outfit. Three good tips to remember:

  • Wear them over long sleeves
  • Use several bracelets stacked in one arm
  • You can also carry two identical ones, one in each arm

 

Long Cardigans

I am really enjoying to wear long cardigans on my outfits this season. They are cozy, add an extra warm layer and can look very stylish. You can cinch your waist with a belt or leave it open to flaunt the contrast beneath it.

It looks amazing with a destroyed jeans & tee (for a casual outfit), but it can also be used with a dress or trousers and shirt for a classier look. It is a great piece to use during the change of the seasons. An excellent buy!

Great casual look

I really liked the outfit the Duchess of Cambridge wore yesterday to an engagement. It is a nice casual outfit for chillier days. The red blazer and heart earrings add a cute touch for Valentine’s Day.

Pantone’s Colour of the Year 2017

The Pantone Colour of the year 2017 is Greenery, a yellow-green hue. It is a shade that relates with Spring, Summer and, most important, with the environment. Pantone’s executive director Leatrice Eiseman said: “The tangy yellow-green speaks to our desire to express, explore, experiment and reinvent, imparting a sense of buoyancy”.Great to start the new year!

Now, I know that green is not very popular, and I am not suggesting you go out and by lots of things in this colour. That’s not the idea. The important thing is to know the trends and, with this knowledge, incorporate them in your life (or not)!
