The Winter Vest

The Winter Vest

The Winter VestIt doesn’t have to be a winter vest per se, any kind of sleeveless & open front jacket or coat you throw on over your sweaters and/or under your coats count as winter vests and they are awesome. Years ago, when I was trying to figure out the tricks of the layering trade, I discovered that a vest was the missing part of that unsolvable equation. Come summer or winter, a vest is the thing you need to unbland the look without compromising comfort. And just like pretty much everything else, it’s better when it comes in wool.

Fire The Flare

Fire The Flare

Flare JeansI can’t think of another bottom – skirt, shorts, pants or otherwise – that looks good, I mean GOOD, on every.single.woman on earth. That super power is bestowed upon only and only one thing: flared trousers. Not bootcut, not boyfriend, not bell bottoms – flare is a complicated yet a Parisianly simple cut: fitting around thighs with gradually and tastefully widening cuffs starting from below the knee; flared trousers are the invisibility cloaks of real world. Elongating the legs by at least 10cm no matter how high your heels are and slimming you down 2 sizes at a time, it’s always a chic, safe, photo proof, easy to make a transition from day to night option that you should have in your closet in every possible color.

Why am I making a post about flared trousers now while they were always in fashion? Their only downside is (was) you have to keep on wearing your heels and can’t change into flats when you need to but now it’s acceptable, if preferable, to wear them with sneakers and flats with a shorter cuff. Hip hip hooray and fire the flare!

Oxfords, Creepers

Oxfords, Creepers

Natalie Joos creeper oxfords PFW creeper oxfords2Jessie Bush creeper oxfordsI know this trend does not rhyme nor is easy on the eyes, but it surely is nonignorable. I believe was invented by a short woman who hates the discomfort of high heels and mediocrity of wedges but still wants to rise above several other “things” around her and all the while make a statement, once urban-college gear creepers took a fashionable turn thanks to brands like Acne and Stella McCartney (only to begin with) and now they’re everywhere. Videlicet, they should be in your wardrobe too. Go!

Know Your Slit

Know Your Slit

margaret zang nyfwI don’t know if there was ever a phase in life where slits were out, but they sure as hell in this fall in New York. Fashion week has started and from the first looks at the street style scene what caught my eye the most are the deep slits of skirts (no matter how you style them) hand in hand with fringes, oxford flats, below the knee skirts and peplum layerings.
