What should I wear?!

Yes, this is a question you probably ask yourself sometimes before going to a cocktail party, a family dinner or any other occasion. Sometimes it can be confusing to know what to wear and it can be hard to know what’s appropriate for the activity you’re planning on doing. Of course everybody has their own personal style, but here are some options I suggest for different occasion. It’s summer and that means a bunch of activities are at your door!

1. Pool party. With the beautiful and warm weather and a bunch of friends, a pool party is a fun way to enjoy summer. Put on that new bikini of yours (or a one-piece if you feel more comfortable) and cover up with a fun and simple dress. Big sunglasses and flip flops are a must! Try some trendy nail polish, like coral or teal!

2. Happy hour. Going for a drink with some colleagues after work or catching up with some friends during a 5 à 7? High waist shorts with a nice blouse, some low simple heels and jewellery are the key items to a sophisticated yet simple look, perfect to grab some drinks and maybe go for tapas afterwards, why not?

3. Family dinner. Grandparents, uncles, aunts or even a dinner with your boyfriend’s family? Go for something chic and traditional like a black a-line dress. Add a belt for some structure and beautiful dangling earrings and you’ll be feminine and classy.

4. Going to a festival. Summer is festival season! Grab your favorite pair of denim shorts, add a belt, a striped tee (go for blue and white stripes for a nautical vibe), a leather jacket (for those colder nights) and some edgy sandals and you’re ready to rock the streets! Don’t forget those retro sunglasses.

5. Club night with the girls. Ready to dance the night away? Forget the spandex and the too-tight dresses that are just so unflattering and uncomfortable! Show just enough skin with a back cut out dress that has patterns or bright colors. Go for a halter top dress or a criss-cross back, both will be sexy, but still classy. Nice reasonable height heels (you want to dance, remember?) and let your hair loose or try a very high ponytail tail!

I really hope you’ll enjoy every moment of this wonderful summer. Take every opportunity that passes next to you and see the people you love and admire. My last fashion advice would be to have fun with your outfits but remember to stay classy and respectful to yourself.

Hasta pronto!

Night out in the city

The weather is getting hotter and hotter, I’m so excited for summer! With this nice weather around, you just want to grab your friends and enjoy a night out in the city. Want to look urban chic this season? Add these three items to your wardrobe and you’re set to go. Enjoy the sangria!

1. Tailored shorts. Show of those sexy legs of yours in stylish tailored shorts (same material as work pants). Add a blouse or a simple tee and a blazer! With black shorts, go for a coral blouse!

2. Small clutch. An oversized tote can remove a bit of the chic factor of your outfit. Plus, it’s too big for a night out! Instead, opt for a small clutch in trendy colors (emeraude, coral and cyan blue) or a classic favorite!

3. Medium-height simple pumps. Sexy, stylish and yet more comfortable than super high heels so you can dance the night away. Add a pop of color to a neutral outfit with turquoise or red pumps. Be versatile with black, white or beige heels.

Enjoy your night!

Hasta pronto!
