Embroidery is certainly a very hot trend, now more than ever, but I tend to see more of it on store hangers than on people. Why is that? Well, because embroidery is not that easy to master and often times it just doesn’t look good once on. There are many common fears surrounding the embroidery: fear of having an overly ‘busy’ outfit, fear of looking too try-hard, fear of appearing too girly/romantic, or completely ‘baba-cool’. So, how to balance and which mistakes to avoid? I would say that one embroidered item is way easier to wear compared to an entire embroidered outfit (e.g top+bottom or a dress).

Double denim outfits have been on and off magazine pages for a while now, but unlike other trends, you don’t see much of them around in ‘real life’. I’m guessing that a good double denim outfit is not so obvious to put together and most people choose to stay away from trouble 😂 I want to share a couple of do’s and dont’s when you are putting together a double denim look. Firstly, it is very important to forget such accessories as hats, heavy belts, cowboy boots – adding any of those elements means increased risk of looking like a caricature from a western movie.
(Almost) Everything you need to know about Sports Luxe Last couple of years have been all about Sports Luxe – we went through acceptance of sneakers at work and in restaurants, ‘workout’ clothes sneaked into our wardrobes and are now worn anywhere but the gym. It is ‘normal’ to wear a fancy tracksuit with an elegant cashmere coat. I was always a huge fan of Sports Luxe style and adopted it way earlier than it was publicly accepted (or probably before the definition of this style was even written). So, what is Sports Luxe and how to master it?
HOW TO WEAR PATENT LEATHER One of the hottest trends right now aside of everything velvet is everything vinyl, or in other words patent leather (usually vegan). I wanted to add a couple of lines to this outfit post on how to wear patent leather this season, because trust me it is not that obvious:) Here I went all in with this red hot patent mini AND a matching raincoat. There are a couple of rules when wearing provocative patent leather pieces. Rule number one : juxtaposition is necessary. I would recommend wearing this ‘sexy’
It’s almost fall….but still summer. How to dress? Depending on where you live days can be pretty hot but evenings get really chilly so little white dresses are ready to go hibernate on shelves and hangers till next summer. Even though autumn is clearly approaching, many of us are still not ready for sweaters, thick denim, sneakers and boots – we need a fall transition plan. Some people are never cold, I’m sure each of you have one of these superhuman on your friends list:) That girl in a short backless dress that is sitting on a terrace with an ice margarita at 60F (15 degrees celsius for my dear Europeans) –
