How to wear stripes part 3 – skirt

howtowearstripesskirt5

Hopefully by now you have seen my part 1 and part 2 of how to wear stripes. I showed you how to wear striped jacket and striped top and today I want to show you how to wear striped skirt. This is a final part of this series, but to be honest I wear stripes so much you will alway see me wearing them.

As I mentioned before it’s a very easy pattern to style and it looks very chic. Just always stick to the same colour palette if it’s something very colourful already. With a simple Breton top you can add another colour but with this skirt I chose same colours for the rest of my look. I actually wore this skirt already here and chose to bring out the Burgundy out of it, here I highlighted the pink.

This skirt is so versatile despite its many colours and can be styled many ways. I love wearing it and now I’m looking at these pictures it’s making me want to put it on again soon so maybe I’ll wear it tomorrow. It’s an easy A-line shape as well which I think suits most body shapes.

I hope that with my 3 different looks I’ve inspired you to wear more stripes. Unlike some other patterns they never go out of fashion and they are a fun print. Just keep the rest of the look simple. Choose any of the colours that are featured in the print for the rest of your look (in this case you can go for white, yellow, pale blue, rust, pink, Burgundy..) and you can’t go wrong. You might think this skirt is too colourful it would be difficult to style but it’s actually very easy.

Do you like stripes?

Fall colour combinations: burnt orange

fallcolourcombinations6

Last week I talked to you about some new colour combinations I’m loving for autumn (see it again here) and there’s another colour I’m really into this season – burnt orange and its combinations with other colours.

I must admit I’ve never really been into any kind of orange much in the past but it’s a surprisingly flattering colour on most skin tones and it pairs so well with many other colours including pink (yes!). I’ve bought these trousers completely on a whim but I can tell you I’ve been wearing them so much. So far I’ve paired them with rust, pink, camel and off-white and not only they are super comfortable they literally go with everything. I’ve got another very different look coming up soon to show you a smarter more evening look so make sure you will come back to see that in couple of weeks.

In here I just threw in all the colours together and I think it actually works and shows how adaptable all these autumn colours are. If you look in the nature and the changing leaves they are all there (well except for pink).

What do you think of this look? Do you like burnt orange?

Autumn lipstick shades

falllipsticks5

In last week’s beauty post’s I promised to show you some of my favourite lipstick shades for autumn so here it is.

I still love pink lips in the fall I just go for deeper shades and choose more raspberry colours and even go for Burgundy. I don’t like anything too dark though as it doesn’t suit my skin tone. If you’re pale like me I’d say avoid dark colour of lipsticks. If you still however want to wear Burgundy this Tom Ford shade is perfect for you. It’s the one I’m wearing in the photo below (and top one on my hand). It’s quite sheer to start with but you can layer it for a stronger shade. I really love it.

Another one I really love and have been wearing a lot is Estee Lauder Thrill Seeker. It’s a gorgeous shade, has a really nice texture and feels nice on the lips.

If you prefer matte lips you will love the YSL stain. It’s got amazing staying power and I love the colour. It’s more purple but not too daring and looks really nice on. The only reason why I don’t wear it more often is that it feels very dry (like most matte lipsticks do) and I prefer moisturising ones.

Last but definitely not least is a Dior lipstick. I love their make up and this lipstick is no exception. I’ve already spoke about it last week but here’s the link again. It’s a gorgeous colour and lasts really well.

What are your favourite lipsticks for autumn?

How to wear stripes part 2 – top

howtowearstripestop7

In my new Wednesday’s series How to: I’m showing you how to wear stripes 3 different ways. You can see how I wore a striped jacket in Part 1, and today I want to expand on wearing stripy tops.

I’ve mentioned Breton top in my first post about stripes and it’s the easiest way to wear this print and you should definitely have some in your wardrobe, but in here I want to show you more fun and more adventurous way.

I love colour and most colourful things and the colour palette of this top is just so pretty. It’s easier to style than you may think. If you stick with the colours in this top (and there’s so many to chose from) that’s your palette for the rest of your look. I kept it simple with white skirt (which I have been wearing so much by the way – I wore it very different way here) and chose colourful accessories.

My main tip to wearing  a colourful item:

Stick to the same colour palette and don’t add any more colours that are not included in that item.

It’s ok to add neutrals and metallic jewellery but keep the rest fairly simple. Don’t overcomplicate the look and make the stripy (or other printed top) be the main focus. This look is quite fun and playful but you could totally make it more sophisticated with adding navy or black and put a blazer over it and you’re ready to work as well.

Sometimes people are afraid of stripes/prints but it’s all about the styling and the colour palette. Like I’ve mentioned few times: keep the rest simple. You can really style them up or down and have a little play with stripes.

What’s your favourite way to style stripes?

New colour combinations I’m loving for fall

fallcolourcombinations8

This fall I’ve been adding some new colours to my wardrobe, apart from the usual Burgundy that is always a popular addition this time of year, and I’ve been playing with new  colour combinations and I’m obsessed.

The new colours I’ve been adding are rust and burnt orange and who would have thought they’d pair so well with pink. I tend to wear my brighter colours like pinks, reds and oranges with more neutral colours like beiges or greys and even with navy but never with each other. Well this autumn I’ve been getting out of my comfort zone and I’m loving it.

I’m digging rust and pink and I’ll be wearing variations on this look in the coming months a lot. It’s a new combination to me and I’ve added neutral booties this time but I’m starting to get more adventurous even with that. I’ve added these Burgundy boots to my wardrobe and they are fun way to add colour to outfits and also loving these burnt orange ones.

Last week I started new series How to where I’ll be showing different ways to style things. You can read again part one here. I would love to know what you think.

Have you discovered any new colour combinations?

Lipstick lover

howtowearstripesskirt7

Today’s post is just a very quick one because it has been a super crazy busy week but next week I will be showing you my favourite lipstick colours for fall.

Lipsticks are my favourite beauty item, I am slightly obsessed with them and would definitely call myself a collector and a lipstick lover. I did a post earlier this year about some of my favourite lipsticks for summer (read it again here) but now it’s slowly starting to feel like fall I’m switching to darker colours and more raspberry pinks and burgundies. I will do a post next Friday (so don’t miss it!) about some of my favourite colours for this time of the year but for now I wanted to share with you two that I’ve been using nonstop last couple of days. The first one is from the latest Dior lipstick collection and the colour I’m loving is 755 Ultra Daring.(btw the colour looks different in the picture). It’s like a raspberry pink – perfect for this time of the year. And the other one pictured above is also from Dior and it’s more like a stain perfect for every day pictured above.

What’s your favourite lipstick? What are your favourite beauty products?

Have a stylish day.

How to wear stripes: part 1 – jacket

howtowearstripesjacket1

I’m starting a new series today and every Wednesday I will share with you different ways to style an item of clothing or a trend. Starting with stripes. They’re not really trendy, they are timeless and that makes them even better. I love stripes! Put on a pair of jeans, classic Breton top and a pair of cute flats and you’re good to go and chic at the same time. It’s the safest option ever but works every time! I own several Breton tops and they really are a wardrobe staple but if you want to go a little further with your stripes, read on.

Today I’m showing you how to wear a stripy jacket, next time will be top (but not Breton) and then skirt. I wonder which look you will like the best, so make sure you let me know. I have a few stripy jackets as well (told you I loved stripes, I own more stripy items than I can admit) case in point here. In both cases I styled the jacket with a simple white top and jeans. I believe if you’re wearing a statement jacket (which this is what it essentially is) you want to keep the rest of the look simple. If you’re new to striped jacket especially, styling it with jeans is the easiest way.

If you want to look smarter, you can add a pair of cigarette or slim fit trousers. I would mostly keep the top white, because that really shows of the colours well and doesn’t take away the attention from the jacket. That’s your main focus and keep it that way. If you’re feeling playful and more confident with your stripes you can add a fun brooch to really add to the statement.

With accessories keep it simple too. You can choose the same colour shoes that can be found in your jacket, or go for nude or black. Don’t overdo it and really stick to few colours when you’re new to this. As you feel more confident with this look you can really play with it but I really would keep the jacket as your main statement piece and keep the rest simple.

Stripes are such a fun print and make your outfit pop without it looking like you’re trying too hard. They’re effortless but chic. There’s so many options. You can go for two colour or something very colourful and it will brighten your day.

Do you love stripes? Don’t forget to check out my next stripy look next Wednesday.
