Lace is a delicate fabric made of yarn or thread in an open weblike pattern, made by machine or by hand. Originally linen, silk, gold, or silver threads were used. Now lace is often made with cotton thread, although linen and silk threads are still available. Manufactured lace may be made of synthetic fiber.
Lace trend is staying! It looks romantic, feminine and classic. Everyone can wear it, you just have to be careful with choosing right silhouette and styling lace pieces. Honestly, you always have chances to add few years to your age and look outdated. We don’t want it! So, we mix lace with slouchy silhouettes, leather, casual sneakers, stylish accessories. And Lace is the definitive fabric of 2019 Runways.
I hear all the time that girls are afraid to use colors in their wardrobe because they don`t know how to coordinate their outfits by color. Sometimes it can be difficult to know which colors you should wear with that green shirt or that blue skirt…
There is one more myth saying that you can use just 3 colors in the same look. Probably it came from men’s business wardrobe by mistake. Just forget it!
If you really like black, great! Just make your total black stylish! But if it’s just the easiest way to solve a problem, it’s time to change!
All colors can be matched together. You just need to know basics. There are two ways to coordinate colors:
By color temperature
Cool + cool, warm + warm
However, if you think that blue and green are cool, and red and yellow are warm, then you need to learn how to identify them. It’s not hard, just need practice.
By chroma and value
Dark + Dark, Light + Light, Muted + Muted, Bright + Bright
You can create very attractive outfits using this method; however, it`s not universal approach and it`s not going to help you to make capsule wardrobe. But if you have a lot of clothing in your closet and you like to buy new all the time, it`s perfect for you!
And the easiest way to add colors to your wardrobe is adding one color to your achromatic outfit. Achromatic colors (white, grey and black) have no hue, like “colors without colors”. They are universal and match with anything. This risk-free way could be used as a first step to your colorful wardrobe.
If you still think that it`s too complicated, just find someone professional who can help.
Enjoy colors! 💋

Still dreaming about white coat! Buy it! Sure, it’s not practical like another color, but worth the money. it looks rich and glamorous! It gives your outfit winter crisp and chic! You can wear an all-white look or over any colored outfit. It is always hard to find ideal coat especially in white! I found some models and want to share them with you here.
White shoes are very trendy for few seasons already, and this trend is not going anywhere. White is an achromatic color which means it matches with any colors and hues. White boots add a freshness and a brightness to outfits that makes them look more stylish. Knee-High boots are making it big this season and they became number one in all fashionista`s wardrobes in white color. You can wear it with jeans and a tee, skirt, or a sweater dress, they look fabulous!
Please don`t tell me that it was very nice and warm 60 degrees weather yesterday in New York! I am freezing! Yes, I will be freezing till next Summer… And I am definitely ready for sweater dress weather! I think it’s the best cold seasons wardrobe solution! I was looking for a new sweater dress for a beautiful girl yesterday and, sure, ordered two for myself, it’s never enough! Designers have styled the trend for every girl, just pick your own way to wear a warm dress: with sneakers, with brogues and loafers, with ankle booties and pumps, with over-the-knee or cowboy boots…
From bed to street! It’s not new anymore that “bedroom” clothing successfully went outside. We wear pajama suits, tops, lingerie dresses, silk skirts to go to the city. Slip dress! Originally it was the inner lining to a gown, and now a full-blown dress category. It’s suitable for cocktail events, nights out, or just a layering piece. There are a lot of styling variations for these dresses! Wear it with high heels, boots, sneakers, leather jackets, coats, cardigans, oversized sweaters, t-shirts or turtlenecks underneath. Add accessories do not look like it’s a “sleep” dress and you just woke up and you are ready to go! The dress or skirt could be with an asymmetrical hemline, it is trendy now. Silk leopard skirt is the most popular “IT Girl`s” item now. But do not go to extremes!
The leather biker jacket is an absolutely timeless and extremely versatile piece for your wardrobe. You can layer it over everything you wear, or even under your coat. You can dress down your party outfit and give it a bit of rock-inspired edge. Besides being an essential layering piece, a stylish leather jacket also comes in handy when you need a top layer for warmth, but it’s important to look fashionable. Designers change biker jackets silhouette, add decorations, make it in different colors. But perfect timeless basic leather biker jacket which is going to last you forever has a pretty simple “classic” silhouette (“double rider jacket”). It could be in any color according to your preferences. Suede biker jackets look really great; however, caring for them will be more complicated than for your jacket made of leather.
Leopard skirt is elegant and stylish, but extremely versatile. Leopard print skirt in spite of being such a statement piece, it is probably one of the easiest animal print garment to style. It can be worn in summer or winter, for the office (if you don’t have a very strict dress code) or on holiday, for the day or night. These skirts are having a big moment in fashion right now. Are you ready for the animalistic season? And please do not afraid to mix prints! Leopard is absolutely neutral and perfectly paired with other prints! Read about mixing prints here.
The Western hype continues! Almost all designer collections have Western ideas. It doesn’t mean dressing like a full-on Western film. We just take some elements and add them to our wardrobe. Boho style is in trend already few years. Cowboy style is a little bit harder to adapt it to our everyday look; however, it looks more feminine now that makes the process easier. We do not wear just jeans and a plaid shirt. Dresses, skirts, blouses spiced by cowboy belts, a lot of Boho jewelry, hats, bags, sunglasses and my favorite for this season were a few pairs from Chloe. And the most important detail is cowboy boots! More than a year designers create them in different colors and shapes for the warm or cold weather! I will give you examples with shopping links and some street style pictures for inspiration as usual! Be stylish, Girls!
Fall is already here! As the weather becomes chilly we are going to wear comfortable, warm, and trendy corduroy pants, jackets, dresses, and skirts this upcoming season. It is impossible to avoid this`70s trend, it is going to be everywhere in different colors and shapes. Corduroy is not going to replace a denim; however, something new is coming! “Everything new is well-forgotten old…” I will share a few interesting pieces from different brands and collections. And we will see how the street-stylers is wearing cords.
