Hi guys

My favorite accessories of all time is a hat. You can top any outfit with a hat and be sure that you will look more stylish and stand out from the crowd.  Common misconception is that hats are for bad-hair days or when one can’t bother to wash their hair.  Although that’s a helpful trick you can actually style your hair according to the hat you are going to wear.

If you have a short hair push your hair behind your ears, pick a beautiful pair of earrings, wear your favorite hat and your good to go.

With a long hair there are a few more hair style that you can try.

-Side swept is the best. I pull all my hair over one shoulder ( I can fix it or  just let it sit naturally) and top it with a hat. This hair style looks good with all type of hats.

-Another hair style is a low knot bun. In this case free a few strings of hair around your face. It will give you an effortless look. This one is really good for a hot day when I’m out and about.

-A messy side bun is another way to style your hair while wearing a hat. I think this hair style looks better with a fedora or a sun hat (or any big hat in general).

-With a newsboy or cadet hat I prefer to have my hair center part and let them fall on my shoulder and hang around my face.

It depends on the style and material of the hat you can wear it on many different occasions. Hats are classic accessories that remind me of classic icons such as Grace Kelly, Josephine Baker and Katharine Hepburn. Weather it’s cold or hot a hat is always the best accessory you can complete your outfit with.

How to Achieve Your Dream Style?

Chanel eyewear

Hi guys

Social media is dominated by stylish beautiful good looking woman who are wearing incredible outfits. Although many of outfits we see on social media are not practical in a real life, they definitely inspire us.  On the other hand these photos make many girls feel envious and give them the courage to try new things. Sometimes trying too many new things can cause confusion and losing the sense of ones own style. Here are some simple steps to define your style and change it to your dream style.

MassimoDutti dress

As the first step you need to take pictures of your outfit every day for a week. Dress as you normally would do and then take a photo in front of mirror. Usually a photo provides more details and it helps you to be objective.After a week  take a look at those photos and describe the style you see in photos. If you see that outfit on someone else how would you describe it. You can also ask your friends whom you trust to describe the way you dress in few words. Ask them to be fair and honest.

Now that you know how you dress and what impression does it make on people around you it’s time for the next step. Go to Pinterest or Instagram and take a look at photos of your role model or the one person that you wish to be like. Describe her style in few words and compare them with the words you wrote in the first step. This will give you a fair perspective of what you’re trying to achieve.

Now go back to those photo on social media and write list of all pieces that you’re idol wears regularly. For example if your role model wear jeans on almost every photo add jeans to your list. Pay attention to colors, fit and style of those pieces. Another example can be shoes; does your role model wear sneakers or ballerina more? The answer shows you what kind of shoes you need in your wardrobe. Keep going until you get every detail. Then check the list, be honest with yourself and cross those items that you know you would never wear.

Now you have a list of everything you need to achieve your dream style. Please keep in mind that YOU DON’T NEED THE EXACT ITEMS. I can’t emphasize this enough; you don’t need to buy expensive stuff, just buy pieces that have similar shape, style or color. If you have a tight budget checkout this blogpost for some tips on building your wardrobe.

The last thing to do is to cross-reference every piece that you’ve already owned with the list and get rid of those that you don’t want anymore and make plan for adding the new spices.

How To Build a Wardrobe On a Tight Budget

Esprit hatHi Guys

Colors and styles change from season to season while for most of us it’s not possible nor practical to change our whole wardrobe. So the best way to keep our style updated is to find pieces that works with the clothes that we’ve already have. To do so you need to have timeless pieces that you can mix & match. So how do you do that on a tight budget?

Ecco shoes

1- Basic pieces

We all know that the most important part of any wardrobe is basic pieces. The trick is to pick appropriate pieces according to your lifestyle, job and age. Although I believe that one can be chic and stylish at any age it’s important to understand the difference between what is suitable for a professional woman and what suits a teenager. Also go for high quality pieces since you are going to wear them over and over again.

2-Don’t let cliché define you.

Buy only pieces that you can match and mix without falling for “must-haves”. For example if white is not your color instead of white shirt buy a denim shirt. The point is have a well made shirt that you can wear on different occasions. Other colors that are good options are navy, beige, royal blue, grey or black. Having a white shirt just for sake of it, is waist of money and won’t help you in any way.

3- Invest in jeans

You need at least one pair of jeans that fits you perfectly. Choose your favorite style and color then you can wear it all year around.  Since denims get better through the time you can look for a pair of jeans on second-hand websites. Remember “one man’s junk is another man’s treasure”.

4-Accessories are important

When it comes to accessories pick your battle wisely; put your money on those that you love and use the most. Don’t pay too much for trends that won’t last more than a season instead go for classic pieces with high quality. For example a beautiful well made scarf will never go out of style and will make any outfit chic instantly.

5-Bags and shoes

I suggest to go for faux leather. There are lots of beautiful well-made options available these days. They are less expensive and cruelty free. Zara and Mango have many different styles which are affordable and chic.

6- Occasion outfits

You don’t need any fancy dresses in your wardrobe. So don’t spend your money on them, not even when they’re on sail. If there is a special occasion you can rent a dress. Just google “rent a dress” and you’ll find many websites that provide such a service. You can look like a million bucks without actually spending a fortune.

White crisp shirt-dress is one of my favorite pieces. It’s a clever twist on a classical piece. It’s fresh, chic and versatile.I think the easiest way to style a white shirt dress is to play with accessories. This outfit is one of my favorite one since it’s sharp, comfortable and chic.

Since the whole look is only black&white it’s important to choose more colorful accessories. Like this beautiful silk scarf.

For a curvy girl like me it’s important to use a belt to emphasize my waist whenever I wear oversized clothes.
