Holiday Parties: What to Wear

Holiday parties are coming up very soon with Christmas and New Year’s Eve just around the corner. Don’t worry if you haven’t bought something to wear yet, there’s plenty of sales in stores, and you can definitely wear something you already have and just add a new accessory to make a little change to it. The best advice I can give you is to wear something classy and comfortable that goes along with your personality whither you are more conservative or funky. Here are some trendy ideas for this season!

1. Asymmetrical pencil skirt. 

One of the biggest trend in the skirt department is the asymmetrical skirt which means that the length is not even all around. I really like the pencil skirt since it has a more structured shape. Wear it with a blouse or a cute top. Don’t forget to choose one that has an appropriate length, a little above the knee!

2. Sweater dress.

Hesitating between wearing a sweater or a dress? Go for the sweater dress! It’s super modern, comfortable and totally chic! Don’t forget to add some nice statement pieces of jewellery to make this outfit stand out!

3. Shootie.

The heel of the season? The shootie! It is a mix between a bootie and a shoe since it is all closed up and it doesn’t go above the ankle. Choose some black or grey ones that are universal and go with every one of your outfits! Plus, they are super comfy!

4. High waist pants.

High waist pants will make your legs look longer and leaner, and with a silk fabric, they are absolutely perfect for the occasion. Add a blazer, a cardigan or a blouse to complete the outfit!

5. Burgundy nails.

For this season, I would go for burgundy nails, since it is a glamorous version of the traditional Christmas red. I would also go for royal blue, grey, and pale pink.

Happy holidays everyone! Thanks for reading!

Hasta pronto!

Summer Events with Style

July just started which means plenty of summer events will be at your door. It’s warm and sunny outside, it’s the perfect weather to wear all your summer clothes. Magazines are full of new trends, but before buying new items, I suggest you to do a big wardrobe cleaning and organization to see what you have and discover old pieces that you had forgotten about. I just did mine and I discovered pieces I didn’t wore that I will incorporate to my looks this summer. With the summer still at its beginning, maybe you’ve gotten a wedding invitation, maybe you’re going to Osheaga or to music festivals, maybe you’re planning a pool party, maybe you’re wondering what to wear to all of those incredible events. Here are some suggestions of outfits according to the event!

1. Attending a wedding.

You’ve sent your answer and your meal choice, but now you need to plan your outfit. A sacred rule is to not wear white, and I totally agree. Leave the bride shine! I would suggest going with a A-line dress (fitted at the top and open (skater skirt) at the bottom) which is cute, romantic and feminine. If you’re more classic, go with light colors, like light pink, green or blue. If you’re more daring, go with royal blue, purple or red. Another great option is to wear a maxi dress. I love the ones that have a slit on the side so it’s easier to walk and you can still show your legs. Add a statement necklace, dangling earrings, bracelets, rings and nice classy heels.

2. Pool party.

Whether you’re planning a pool party or attending one, it’s one of those events that screams SUMMER. Wear your swimsuit (bikini or one-piece) under a light, simple and loose dress that’s easy to remove and put on. Go wild with colors and patterns! If you’re not feeling the dress, wear jeans shorts with a tank top or t-shirt. Bright nail polish on toes and finger nails adds a fun touch also. Don’t forget the sangria and the shades!

3. Girls’ night out.

Hitting the dance floor tonight? Be classy and don’t wear inappropriate clothing. So many people do the error of choosing tight and slutty outfits that don’t flatter their silhouette. I recommend a pencil skirt (a simple black one or one with patterns) and a peplum top (very trendy!) It’s a classic look which is sexy and trendy and it gives a nice figure. I also recommend chic high-waist shorts with a colorful top (royal blue, deep green, orange). Of course, a nice, sexy and simple dress is always a good option for an amazing night! Simple jewelry, lip stick, mascara and.. am I hearing the dance floor call my name?

1 simple sweater, 3 ways

By the end of winter you’re getting bored of the same sweaters and you can’t wait to put on those spring outfits. I know I can’t! Doing some cleaning in your wardrobe can make you discover surprising treasures you had forgotten, but if you’re stuck with the same sweaters and want a little update to your look, here are three ways to wear: The simple sweater.

1. Cute and flirty in a skater skirt.  The skater skirt is fun, cute and comfortable. Wear your simple sweater tucked in or out of your skirt with black tights, small edgy boots, many bracelets and loose wavy hair.

2. Chic and sexy in high waisted pants. Choose skinny comfortable high waisted pants (they will elongate your legs!) I love those that have discreet patterns or some leather-like fabric (the tuxedo style). Go for the pants, heeled booties or equestrian boots, a colorful scarf, a high bun and fuchsia lips.

3. Trendy and casual in jeans. Wear your sweater with some light blue jeans (I prefer the skinny fit, but you can choose the one that fits you better), ballet flats or loafers and the most important part: a statement necklace. Choose one with vibrant colors that will stand out.

Hasta pronto!
