Denim news

Who What Wear UK has an article about Denim Autumn trends, which you can read Here, I am only going to show you two of them though, the only ones I like

The denim midi dress

This one is actually sold out I am afraid, there will be plenty of others around though, if it is to be a trend!

The denim midi skirt

This one instead is available Here

Have you noticed how both are midi, I take it that’s a trend too…and one I like, much much chicer than the shorter version, in fact, the only option, as far as I am concerned!

Denim of course…

 

We all turn to denim when:

Denim spring 2015

1) we don’t know what to wear

2) we want to be comfy

3) the weather’s not sure what to do

4) we can’t be bothered to think

5) mid-season

Anything else? There are so many reasons to wear denim!!

The fact is, denim is such a  “problem solver”, for all seasons. Denim goes with just about anything. Denim can be cheap but still great! So, let’s have a look at some clothes now!

Lots of dresses, I love them!

It is a little early for a dress I suppose and I guess we must still wear tights if we want to use one, although I much prefer them with naked legs. I would wear my mules and a clutch with it, just to make it fun!

I also think a chambray shirt or top are quite cute:

These perhaps could be dressed up with a chunky necklace.

I have seen a picture (I can’t find it anymore) where the match was a classic shirt and skirt, both denim.

A bit like this:

Last but certainly not least, the jean. I don’t like the 70s look. Some say the skinny is “out” for this season but I honestly don’t care. I still like it, so I am going to wear it  whenever I fancy. I appreciate  a comfortable cut though, so I obviously adore the “boyfriend jean”. Right now, it looks like you don’t even need to get it shorted, you can just roll it up or turn it up!

There is also a hybrid I found, by Aritzia, called “the strinny” (straight leg meet skinny, that’s theirs). Something, as you can see, between a boyfriend (top) and a skinny (legs), I guess it could be a good solution for undecided people!

Actually, I think I like it, but I am not sure it’s for anybody’s shape…

Pretend it’s Spring

Let’s pretend it’s Spring! images Because it really isn’t yet, is it? But we all want it to be, some of us because they don’t like the cold and most of us just because we want to wear something different! I love winter clothes, don’t get me wrong, but even I am fed up with wearing them, my mind screams for something new!!!!!

The problem is the temperature just doesn’t let us fulfil our fantasies…so, what’s a woman to do? Well, we can cheat!! While keeping warm, we can at least look like we have a Spring look.

Make-up: surely you can start using fresher colours rather than wintery ones like grey and black, your eyes are asking for brighter shades. Your nails too, but enough with those bold colours, use a nice off white, pale pink, something chic.trucco-occhi-ombretto-celeste

Hair: perhaps a new haircut? Something a bit more daring?! Shorter?Cute-haircuts-really-short-hair Don’t you just get fed up looking at the same image in the mirror day after day? Change! That’s what needed!! Anyway, after a certain age shorter hair makes you look younger..

 Clothes colours:

do put away all of those brown, dark green, grey and black (well.. some of it!). Use instead lighter shades like pearl grey, navy,  blue, beige, a touch of white or pink (nice pink, not girly pink though) etc. Have a look at Filippa K to see the colours I am talking about: http://www.filippa-k.com/en/woman/new-arrivals

Brights in your accessories perhaps?!

Fabrics: even though your favourite tartan/tweed skirt doesn’t keep you that warm, it looks terribly warm, so away it goes. Quilted always looks wintery, so does fur, camel coats, velvet, corduroy, etc. Bring out your short leather jacket instead (better if not brown or black) or, if you can take the morning chill, your raincoat. Otherwise a lightweight coat, in a nice shade though.

Obviously it is time for denim, gorgeous with suede:

 Scarves: away all the however beautiful woollen scarves and out those colourful silk square scarves! Terribly nice used as belt for your jeans too.

 Tights & socks: NO, it’s as simple as that. Bare legs only. So I suppose that means trousers for now…

Shoes: Ooohhhh, my favourite subject!!! I don’t particularly like boots during winter, so I suggest you put them in a nice box in the garage. Ankle boots have been in fashion even during summer in the last few years but I think that’s daft! I would start with ballerinas or mules.

Or my new love?!?!? It doesn’t really look very Spring like, does it?! Actually, it’s better than that, it’s an all year around bag…as it should be for that price, a few years’ worth of bags!
