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!

Vibrant lips

I’m starting to feel the end of winter and the beginning of spring! The start of a new season always excites me! Flowers will start blossoming, the grass will go green, the birds will be singing and most of all NEW FASHION! Spring means colorful choices. First of all, it has been seen on many runways for this season and stars or wearing this trend big time: the colorful lips. This season, leave the lip gloss away a little and make a bright lip stick your VIP choice! Go dark fuchsia, bright coral, vibrant pink or powerful red!

Dark fuchsia lip stick with bronze eye-shadow, a small line of black eye-liner and some mascara is perfect!

Bright coral lip stick with some green eye-shadow, a line of grey eye-liner and some mascara is gorgeous!

Vibrant pink lip stick with some beige eye-shadow, a neutral eye-liner (a bit darker than the eye-shadow) and very dark mascara is totally feminine!

Powerful red lip stick with grey eye-shadow, black eye-liner and some mascara is glamorous!

One word for your lips: COLOR!

Hasta pronto!

Spring trends for 2013

It’s freezing cold outside, snow is pouring and you might be getting tired of this winter weather (I know I am), but a few more weeks and spring will start to peak. Shops already have plenty of spring styles in stores, so I suggest we boost our enthusiasm by going shopping for some spring clothing. Why not start to incorporate it with your winter styles? Here are some trends you should definitely try!

1. PEPLUM. Oh yes, this trend will be everywhere this season! Dresses, skirts, tops… It’s absolutely sophisticated.

2. MINI CROSS-BODY BAG. Keys, Id, money, lip gloss and you’re on the go! Light and little, this bag will carry your essentials stylishly. You can go for a chic option or for a more casual one.

3. TWO-TONE PUMPS. Spring is synonym for colorful and vibrant colors. That also applies for shoes! With the major color-blocking trend that’s going on, two-tone pumps are the heels you need.

4. WHITE PANTS. Put a colorful top and you have a fresh and trendy look. Choose a skinny or flare type.

5. RUFFLED CHIFFON DRESS. Delicate, elegant and light, this type of dress is effortlessly chic and versatile.

What are you eager to try this spring?
