If you are going to invest in any pair of boots that is not black, it should be one thing and one thing only: snakeskin boot(ie)s. They have already become the most coveted print of the season both for 60’s bohemian souls (thank you Gucci) and cool millennial chicks (thank you Vetements). While my favorite styling is always with cropped denim and an edgy jacket or oversized coat (I’m aware I’m describing the Vetements lookbook exactly) there are so many choices and so many ways to wear them so don’t be intimidated by the print and give it a chance.
If I only had a limited space of one word only for this post it would have been Jacquemus. One single brand, one big trend. Sure metal eyelets, big or small, is no new concept in the fashion industry. Actually Isabel Marant has been using it on almost all of her designs for years, Anthony Vaccarello made repetitive tiny eyelets his signature “design” etc but it was Jacquemus and the huge eyelet clasps that put it back in the trend spotlight. And it’s so good I know you want one too. Yeah you do.
There may or may not be a time in history that I wore my top backwards by mistake. This may have happened more than once. I might have even done it on purpose after a while, since I didn’t show anyone (photos or it didn’t happen) I can’t claim that I thought of it first but honestly, I’ve always been a fan of wearing my button downs backwards. Once I even realized that I’m wearing it the wrong way when I lent the aforementioned blouse to my best friend and saw her wearing the other way around. Long story short; open backs are in, bras are out. PS: The Friends & Family %25 off sale is on at Shopbop for 3 days only with the code INTHEFAM25, don’t miss out!
I was never good at accessorizing, layering is something else but polishing the outfit with anything other than bags and jewelry (sometimes even those) is always too much for me. Though I have to admit sometimes it’s that little detail that saves and uplifts the entire look and I think the skinny scarf is one of those things that you don’t know you need until you do. Even though it recently became a trend with Saint Laurent S/S 2015 and reached a mainstream status with Chloe F/W 2015, my credit goes to Kate Moss whose photos wearing those iconic rocker chic outfits with skinny scarfs wrapped as ties around her neck adorned my teenage room walls for far too long.
This particular trend is especially practical for me, as someone who needs to highlight her waist with almost everything she wears, I constantly find myself grabbing ropes, scarves and fabrics I have around and turning them into belts. Thanks to Isabel Marant, Edun, 3.1 Phillip Lim and of course vintage Dior and many more, this old nautical trend has made a grand comeback this spring/summer 2015 season.
