What NOT to wear this summer!

It’s hard to dress nice and comfortably when it’s hot and sticky outside, and even worse, wardrobe malfunctions are common. Girls always want to look flawless, even when covered in sweat! To help you not make mistakes this summer, and keep your cool with your outfits – here are 7 things, which you should avoid wearing this summer!

1.Crocs!

Last summer I saw so many people wearing crocs, believe me that is a HUGE mistake, better to wear ballerinas shoes, very elegant and comfortable. But crocs…Are you a gardener? No? Then you have absolutely no reason to be wearing plastic clogs on your feet. Ever.

2. Velvet is out of style in summer!

If you have velvet skirt or dress and you are thinking should you wear that this summer or not, the answer is NO! It’s not the best thing to wear when it’s hot outside, unless you want your clothes to stick to you.

3.Visible underwear.

As the weather gets warmer, clothes inevitably get smaller. While now is the time to bare your shoulders, keep in mind that what once remained hidden under a sweater or cardigan is now in full view. Thankfully, there are lots of options to keep your bra straps under wraps, like racer-back or strapless styles.

4. Socks and sandals.

No,no and one more time NO! Please, never match these two things!

5.Heavy coats!

They were in trend this winter and that’s it! When it rains, wear something light!

6. Very short shorts.
Daisy Dukes and denim cutoffs are what summer is all about, but that doesn’t mean we want to see half your  bum hanging out of them. Please, cover up those cheeks.
7. Heavy make-up.

Sweat and sunscreen can melt your makeup into a mess, and the more you have got on, the more noticeable it is. So, swap your heavier products for lighter ones (think tinted moisturiser instead of foundation). Besides, when your skin has a healthy summer glow, you can get away with wearing less.
I hope that my list helped you to realize what you shouldn’t wear in summer. Always remember, that in summer being natural is the best choice!If you have more ideas what not to wear or what you don’t like wearing in summer, leave comments and share your opinion.

5. Monochrome

We know we said Pink is in, but that does not mean that the classy monochrome look is completely fading away. For those that are not too fond of pink, great news! Keep it simple and classy by pairing black and white together. Shades optional.

Bright Lips Are Always In Fashion

Nothing makes quite the same dramatic and subtle accent to an outfit as bright lipsticks do. And certainly one thing is for sure, bright lips are never out-of-date. It doesn’t really matter what the season is, or what time of day it is, they always do a brilliant job in making women feeling more confident and beautiful.

I hardly get excited about lip-glosses, except when it comes to bright lipsticks. With a large range of shades, starting from bright pinky-coral to light-cherry, they have a juicy texture that makes your lips even plumper. And more importantly, unlike the darker ones they flatter almost any type of skin tone and they match with the different lips shapes. Unarguably, with their empowering shade, they also suit both girls and women.

Besides, from my personal experience I can tell that they cover the lips imperfections and they always make them look smoother with a shiny touch.

Except all of their obvious pros as makeup products, they also give a perfect finish to your street style outfit. Their handful tones can be combined with all three moods of the day. They can be used for a daytime wear, a trendy outlook or a fabulous night out. It is not to say that all of them are giving that glamorous appeal since it is true that the brand makes the product. And sometimes if they are too bright, they create the feeling of not wearing a lipstick. But, the great thing about them is that even if they fade-away, in most of the cases, you can’t see that.

So since I am a huge fan of the natural-exotic look, I have always found bright lips as the perfect approach to complete your outlook. This is why I have always fancied them more than the darker ones.

What do you think of bright lips?

The Little Black Dress: Never out of style!

Thanks to legendary Coco Chanel, who invented this kind of dress. First it was shown on Vogue magazine in 1926. And now, 88 years later this dress is still the most popular style of dress and must-have of wardrobe.

Unfortunately, nowadays, more and more women on their way to be always in trend saying that LBD (little black dress) is out of fashion and now it’s time for new designs.

Maria Voronkova, Instagram it-girl says: “ People are tired of Coco’s little black dress, this dress became ordinary, it’s 21 century, we want something new!”

I absolutely disagree with her point of view. Why?

First of all, LBD is unique because absolutely all women can afford themselves to buy simple black dress and you will look very elegant.  It knows no social, style or size boundaries. Whether it costs $1,000 or $50, is a size 2 or a size 22, it is still a little black dress. And everyone wants to own at least one perfect little black dress.

Second, this dress never wil be ordinary because now there are so many variations how to wear this dress. Even the most famous designer, creative director of Chanel and living legend Karl Lagerfeld said : “One is never over-dressed or underdressed with a Little Black Dress.”

Here I want to show you some ways to wear LBD.

When it comes to wardrobe staples, there’s nothing more classic, sexy, and versatile than a little black dress. For brunch with friends, office meetings, girls’ nights out, or your next hot date, the LBD can be transformed time and time again with the right accent pieces. Remember, doesn’t matter if it is morning, afternoon or evening- little black dress will be always right decision!

Leave your opinion about LBD and you’re more than welcome to share the ways how you wear this dress.

London Fashion Week Review

Even though Britain did not display the best of it’s weather but nevertheless; London had spoken, as it gives New York, Milan and Paris a catwalk for its money; as London outlived its image of being a fashion capital as we can truly say that London has carried the custom on with much grace as we say farewell to the spectacular London Fashion Week 2014. That walk; that run, those tantrums, the anxiety, all the drama may have come to an end but it has left its threads all around the world as we salute the new trends that have been born, which will exquisitely dominate ad will be showcased by the fashion disciples all around; as every street will be a ramp and every walk a catwalk to maintain what London is really truly known for: Fashion.

There is no fashion, if there is no passion in fashion and during the Fashion Week buzz we saw a lot of that; as we witnessed all that made our jaw being dropped to our eyes being open wide as we went either woohoo or eekkk! Over crowded room with cameras clicking wildly away; tweeters tweeting away, bloggers blogging away, all to the thrill, and the drill of London Fashion Week as the models strides away.

All scrutinising eyes were on the ramp as the magical experience unfolded itself as big names such as Tom Ford who brings back his sexy trio of supermodels, stiletto’s and a lot of swagger; Christopher Kane debut his first leather goods; Burberry which causes a storm with its new styled Prorsum; Vivienne Westwood who puts her unique twit on high society style with big hats and a lot of red, to name a few top-notch designers who all managed to stimulate our senses with their  bold striking fashion statements as they went head to head in the fashion week as the best of British was gloriously displayed.
