STYLE

After a long pause I’m now back with some more style catching…

I’m going through a phase right now where I’m really interested in looking at different fashion designers and what they’re currently up to in terms of the direction of their collections, and I wanted to start with no other than the woman who always knows how to make women look like women. Stella McCartney.

What I like about Stella McCartney is that she designs classy and feminine clothes while keeping the style of her creations really modest. What I mean by that is that she designs strong clothes and she uses rich fabrics and does not make too many pieces which show a lot of skin, leaving the wearer of her pieces looking feminine yet decent. That’s something really rare nowadays and very refreshing.

Stella McCartney’s latest collections, Fall 2013 and Resort 2013, have some really nice pieces among them. I chose a few for you to allow you to feast your eyes on some seriously nice clothes.

I just love the mix of leather with other fabrics. Softer materials can really take the edge off leather. So unless you’re aim is to go for the hard look, this is the perfect way to incorporate a touch of leather to your outfit. This Zara leather and wool jacket is gorgeous. Definitely one of [...]

I’ve found a designer whose shoes I just love. Once upon a time I really liked wearing heals, but now times have changed and I’m seeing the joy of wearing flats. When there are so many beautiful flats to choose from, why on earth would I want to force my feet into heals? I just [...]

I was just walking in town and as we’re in summer I could not help but notice the sheer amount of tunics worn over figure-hugging or bootcut pants or leggings by women of all shapes and sizes. But what struck me the most was how not too many women know how to choose THE right shapes for [...]

I had a debate conversation with a friend of mine yesterday about the workability of polka dots with leopard print. My friend argued that they do match while I stuck to my opinion that these two patterns just don’t go together unless you’ve done it with care and precision. Anyone who has followed my blog might [...]

Bold statement jewellery is big news this season. As I’ve been spending the previous week in search of style in different parts of southern Europe, one thing I’ve noticed is that you can make a real impression with jewellery alone. And this season it’s all about wearing unique collar necklaces. With loads of stunning necklaces [...]
