I blame Johanna Ortiz for my fixation on naked shoulders, and Ellery for the one on flared everything (sleeves, hemlines…). And what do you know?, this black bodysuit combines them both!
I literally, grabbed it on my way out of the store. After fine combing the place from top to bottom, I was stepping out, when my eyes fell upon the ample sleeves. I grabbed the bodysuit, pulled one sleeve up to a 90 degree angle, and fell in love with the cascading extra cloth that draped gracefully. Despite de unpracticality of it, -I mean, for real, who needs XL sleeves plunging into glasses or sweeping across the table?,- its crushing style blur the unlucky scenarios away.
By now, if you love, breathe, and live fashion to a certain minimum, you know that hussar inspired jackets are one of the straight-out-of-the-oven hot pieces of the season. Inspirited by that epoch, I wore a black romper with a military green jacket and a pair of ankle boots. A look that owns both, the decorum of olden times chivalry, and the sexiness of a little short jumpsuit. I hope you like it!
A few days back, I woke up and felt the urge of spicing my look. Mixing a casual floral jumper, with a more unconventional pencil skirt created an outfit that was stylish and bold. A pair of lace up ankle boots was the final touch for a powerful look that screams: Who runs the World?… and, well, you know how it goes!
About a couple of weeks ago, I was asked to create an outfit with these gorgeous, lace ankle booties. I was told that because they were such a fashion statement, it would be harder for people to visualize them in their wardrobes. I immediately jumped, psyched at the thought of it. I loved the shoes the moment I spotted them, and I already had an avalanche of ideas on how to wear them.
The easiest way of wearing them is letting all of the eyes immediately fall on them, by leaving your legs bare skin. Wear them with a mini dress, skirt, or shorts for maximum showcase. You can always also wear them with skin tight jeans, or if you don’t dare to actually bring everyone’s attention to them, combine them with straight leg or flared trousers.
A sporty grunge trend wouldn’t be complete without a dash of tartan. I styled this body-con dress with a white sleeveless shirt, and a pair of high heel ankle boots. Since the neckline was very high, I added no necklace or long earrings. The only other accessories were a couple of bracelets and a black ribbon.
