today’s look: grandma’s skirt

Tweet These leather boots are not ‘my’ average shoe, meaning that, if you look in my closet, the closest in style you will find is leather cowboy boots or studded ballerina flats, studded belts or spiked cuffs. But… I love ‘em! And it’s fun to mix with unexpected items, like a preppy jacket or this romantic skirt. I’m wearing an army-style jacket and a black lace top with it.

how to wear: beware matchy-matchy

Tweet We fashion freaks like our looks interesting, tantalizing, absurd even! Ofcourse it’s ok to play it safe when you’re in doubt or just having an off-day. I certainly have my ‘playing-it-safe’-moments. When you feel like taking a chance, keep these notes in mind: * focus on one eye catcher, whether it’s a pop of color, a clash of prints, a lot of accessories, or very special shoes, or… (I could go on here) * make sure you take your hair, makeup and coat into account too (a pixie cut adds a little something different than, say, a wild bob). * finally: it’s often a matter of gut-feeling: only you know what suits you and your personality. Be inspired and have a great weekend!

At the moment, large clutches are hot and happening, so don’t think you can’t take anything with you while picking a clutch for the day. Notes: – a brightly colored clutch can really elevate an otherwise simple or demure look. – mixing patterns or prints is tricky but can work out fabulously. – clutches don’t necessarily mean you have to wear a dress, try wearing a one with your favorite pair of jeans.

how to wear: chunky accessories

(click pictures for larger view) Tweet I think accessories are a great tool to show the world who you are. Oftentimes accessories are like art to me and, used wisely, they can elevate the most simple look and transform it into a marvelous masterpiece. A few pointers: * on repeat here: don’t overdo! You don’t want to be compared to a Christams tree. * look for a bit of contrast. A chunky ring or necklace with a romantic dress, a leather bag or cuff with a lace skirt, you get it. * make sure everything (including you!) gets the attention it deserves. Sometimes accessories can build up (as seen on the second picture) but often enough really is enough. * one way to build a look around your accessories is to start by picking a piece you’d really like to

how to wear: animal prints

Tweet I love wearing animal prints, they easily add a bit of spice to a look. Combining animal prints does need some attention though, and not all prints are for every body. Take care not to overdo, and mixing animal prints is for pro’s! Make sure to always add a classic or polished item, so the outfit won’t look ‘cheap’. I hope these pics will inspire you when looking for ideas. Ik vind het erg leuk om een print te dragen, en verschillende tegelijkertijd nog leuker. Een outfit met een print heeft bij het samenstellen altijd wat extra aandacht nodig en niet alle prints zijn voor ieder lichaam. Kijk uit dat je niet teveel toeters en bellen stopt in 1 outfit, en laat het mixen van animal prints bij twijfel vooral over aan de pro’s. Zorg ervoor dat je altijd
