You do not need to be super observant to have noticed that A-line button ups is the way to go about skirts these days. They are cool, effortlessly chic, and play well with absolutely anything! And as it happens, they are also one of my favourite trends of the season. If we talk materials, I would say, opt for suedes or denims. And lengths? Although the queens of street-style have showcased them in a parade of lengths, I will always vow for minis!
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.
When it comes to casual dressing, I have a pattern: plain t-shirts + skinny jeans. I know these t-shirts may be basic, at times, but there is a certain ease to them that makes them somewhat cool. I liked this gray top the moment I saw it, and then I turned it, and, what do you know!…, it was even better! The unexpected back detail came as a total surprise, and it just adds an interesting twist to the tee.
I know my last “Pick of the Week” was already a handbag, but I’ve been lusting over this one for a while now, so I can’t wait any longer to talk about it! I saw it for the first time back in December and I’ve been looking out for it to hit stores since then. Believe me when I say that the images don’t really do justice to the piece… it is much prettier and alluring in real life. I love love love the striped PVC. So simple, so chic! It makes up for a perfect beach tote. The bag comes in two sizes. I say bigger is better!
Sé que mi último post de “El ítem de la semana” fue ya un bolso, pero no puedo dejar pasar más tiempo sin hablar de este otro. Lo ví por primera vez en Diciembre en el día de prensa de Michael Kors y desde entonces he estado esperando a que llegue a las tiendas. Créanme cuando digo que las imágenes no le hacen justicia. En carne y hueso, el bolso es muchísimo más bonito y codiciable. Me encanta el estampado a rayas sobre el material PVC ¡Tan simple, tan elegante! La cartera viene en dos tamaños. Yo digo que mientras más grande, mejor. ¡Éste es sin duda el bolso de playa perfecto!
