A good blazer is women’s best friend. And a must have in her wardrobe – especially when the colder months are coming (or already here!)! It’s a perfect item to help you easily sneak some of your summer essentials into autumn (check here), keeps you warm and boosts your confidence. And it’s a key ingredient for amazing street style looks!

How to style blazer, regarding to occasion (except the obvious suit and heels)?

1.Jeans + flats.

It’s a perfect solution for casual meeting with your friends or date (sneakers) after a business meeting (ballet or boots) not requiring strict dress code.

2.Dress + Heels!

Matching masculine blazer with delicate, lace tops or dresses makes a big statement and is an ideal solution for chilly nights out or events! If your blazer and dress is more on classic side of your wardrobe, you have a chance to go crazy with your shoes or bag!

3.Blazer as a dress!

It’s quite controversial solution, as usually blazers are more of the hip-length rather than thigh-length, but if you are the brave one, and in possession of perfect length blazer, feel free to try it! It’s a very easy, effortless one-piece solution for night or date outfits. If your blazer is loose fit, try this look with wide waist belt, or belt bag.

4.Rollneck + boots!

Layering is a key during winter. A good classic rollneck or turtleneck and blazer will make you look like a powerful Parisian street-styler during time, when temperature goes below ZERO.

5.Top + Skinny Jeans + High Heels!

Another outfit fitting perfectly into night out and date outfit. Top can be anything you already have and enjoy wearing – from sexy satin and lace top to leather bralet, from basic white t-shirt to your favourite band vintage top (personally my favourite), especially with high heels, which will create that edgy, cool look.

Fall Equinox is just in one day (September 22nd), and although Fashion World is way ahead in trends preparing for Spring/Summer 2019, we need to be a little bit more practical and realistic, when it comes to our wardrobe, as temperature is going down really quickly!

There’s probably a lot of pieces, that you spent money on this summer season, but you could still style them pretty easily during Fall and Winter, and I’m here to help you out!

Heres my TOP 5 Pieces that will help you to adapt to colder seasons:

1.Coat

Every women’s must have! I’m a big fan of investing in a good coat in classic color. Not only a flattering cut (I think wrap coat is a save hit for every silhouette) will boost your confidence, but that investment could last you not only few seasons, but a lifetime! Coat is a piece in your wardrobe, which is not only for one or two occasions, so spending some money on good quality once, could save you some coins in long period.

2.Blazer

Oversized blazers have been an important piece of wardrobe for few seasons now, and it looks like they’re still ruling the street style and runways regardless of season. Any feminine summer dress (from mini to maxi, from floral to plain) or skinny jeans with oversized, masculine blazer will make a big statement.

3.Boots 

Just like oversized blazer – you can easily transform your summer outfit in autumn appropriate, by changing sandals to boots.

4.Jeans

A good pair of jeans always helps to put the look together. If you already have one (or more!) in your wardrobe, just add cropped or ruffled top, oversized blazer, and statement boots.  Tip: Flares are back and stronger than ever!

 

5. Knitwear

Sweaters are essential in winter – they keep you warm in cold weather and are perfect step of layering (even better with coat or blazer on top). Chunky, heavy sweaters are perfect with flowy dresses or folded skirts.IMG_6286.JPG

 

These 5 wardrobe pieces are perfect, not only to change your summer wardrobe to more weather-appropriate, but are great as matched together as well.

New York Fashion Week is over and proved that literally EVERYTHING CAN BE A TREND! From street style served by bloggers and celebrities, to runways – we could observe an amazing variety of style, from minimalistic, monochrome to full glam to hippie, wild spirited looks. We’ve also seen lots of debuts – including BLDWN (formely Baldwin), Kate Spade or SavagexFenty and an amazing Rodarte return after a two-year break.

Here are my favorite shows from New York FW:

 

05/09/2018

TOM FORD, multi-talented designer from Texas, previously Creative Director of Gucci and YSL, showed us looks strongly ’90s inspired. With many of all black or all white pieces, he presented metallic, leather and animal-printed fabrics, which appeared also in many of Winter/Fall collections. Ford’s silhouette is slim, long and focused on strength. Men’s jackets on female models, skirtsuits with lace hem, belted corsets. Light, flowy fabrics, like silk satin and delicate lace and metallic stilettos spiced up with crocodile-imitated leather. Big sunglasses and oversized bags are back!

Ulla Johnson, Manhattan’s born and raised designer surprised me with brilliant combination of ethereal, bohemian vibe with more modern cuts. Flowy dresses and firm mini skirts,  puffy sleeves and new monochrome – black&white&red! My attention was caught by African inspired plaited tops and bags and feather accessories. And these frilled shoes – must have for hot summer nights!

I could not pick only one favourite look – this bohemian vibe is my absolute thing!

Kate Spade New York, founded in 1993 by Kate and Andy Spade, previously focused on designing accessories, made a debut in New York Fashion Week, adding amazing pieces of clothes. Since shocking information about Kate passing away this summer, June 2018, new creative director Nicola Glass showed her first collection. Glass successfully kept company’s optimistic vibe, honoring it with ’70s inspiration – hippie flowery prints and earthy and pastel colors, with its big glasses and prints (especially oranges on beige!) and models attending with not one but two bags on runway!

Self-Portrait, brand created in 2013 by Malaysian Creative Director Han Chong, which has received a great deal of concrete attention and support from bloggers like Aimee Song in last years. Chong again showed great sense of mixing textures and prints, which can be easily adapted by younger and mature audience. Runway was ruled by bold graphics, ruffled blouses and frills, patches, 70s/80s inspired (browns, pinks on beige and monochrome), cute daisy-cut laces, big bags. Han Chong’s women is strong, yet flowy and very girly.

Longchamp ,French luxury leather focused brand founded in 1948 in Paris, presented collection with free, wild spirited vibe, mix of Native Americans and Gypsy inspired. Seeing photos from runway I could not think of Cher’s ‘Gypsys Tramps and Thieves’ and Gypsys Caravan photo-shoot of Kate Moss for V Magazine. Animal print, lots of fringes, turquoises, purples and browns, flowy maxi dresses matched with heavy leather and suede jackets, small bags with wide embroidered tassel straps reminding guitar straps, high suede gladiator sandals with fringes. I could not ask for more! Favorite look: ALL!

Rodarte, LA California-based clothing brand founded by genius sisters-designers Kate and Laura Mulleavy, made its way back to NYFW after two years break and created an amazing show, taking us to Wonderland. Models picking their way through the cemetery in bowed stilettos in strong statement colors and silhouette in rain. Feminine, romantic airy-tale dresses and gowns, tulle and ruffle sleeves, metallic fabrics and leather – some really classic pieces, but most of them with lots of avantgarde. Favourite look: ALL!

Zimmermann, an Australian luxury brand founded in 1991 by sisters Nicky and Simone Zimmermann, showed ’70s inspired looks with low waist bottoms and flowy, deep decolletage hippie vibe shirts. Adding sporty and minimalistic pieces  and matching some of them with very girly pieces made me even more in love with that collection! Gold on white and gold&black on white Versace-inspired prints and embroidered/cut pieces created a dreamy chic yet bohemian looks, which I adore, and of course, it would be too hard for me to pick one favourite look from runway.

Proenza Shouler, New York based brilliant duet of Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez showed American inspired collection with modern and minimalistic perspective. Although denim and cotton were main fabrics of the show, you could notice metallic and leather pieces. Duet focused on oversized silhouettes, accenting them with XXL bags and extra low waist dresses. You could spot long belted,escalated paper trousers, bandanas and vests, acid-washed jeans and contrast seams.

Oscar de la Renta, luxury brand founded by Dominican designer known internationally in the 1960s as one of the couturiers who dressed Jacqueline Kennedy. De la Renta’s Spring 2018 surprised with more day-to-night looks and Moroccan/Indian inspired collection with lots of flowy, relaxed-fit or knitted pieces, wraps and pajama style sets detailed with massive embroideries and fringes/feather finishes. Collection gave me feeling of contrasts – strong yellows and reds with whites and monochromes, small bags with statement jewellery. And these ombre gowns – fire!

Marc Jacobs, born in New York designer closed New York Fashion week by presenting fairy-tale, dreamy abstract collection. Color pallet was extended from full of cotton candy pastels to fuchsia and deep oranges to navys and bottle-greens. Escalated silhouettes, rose-inspired ruffles and baggy fit of Chanel-inspired tweed set took everything to extreme. He accented his fantasy with fabrics such as froth, feathers and silk, showing, that fashion is not about functionality but dream and passion (yet you can still spot some day-friendly pieces like trenches, coats or oversized suit!).
