tired of jeans?

Chloé high-waisted silk pants 729 euros

Preen cropped slouchy pants 720,41 euros

Vanessa bruno athé wool-blend tappered pants 238,10 euros

everyone loves jeans (of course). but for a more sophisticated look, try wearing oversized trousers. i'm a complete jeans freak and needed a change, so i bought myself a pair of pants at Mango designed by adam lippes for € 50,-
These pants look great with a simple tshirt or tanktop, they barely cost you anything at H&M. Or for a really special occasion, wear them with a ruffled blouse. for a day look, stick to primary colours and combine them with two-tone shoes. You know, the kind your granddad wears. or with cute pumps
In de evening you can go wild with colours and patterns and stilletos.
A very versatile contribution to your wardrobe.


wear it like a champ

a lot of eighties influences, lots of accessories and draped tops, pants and dresses.metalics, eyeliner, popping lips, chains on bags, biker boots in all forms shapes and sizes and sequins. nailpolish in dark hues.
just be careful with wearing it all at the same time.


seriously stylish men

all these looks are so timeless, simple and masculine. It looks like they just pulled something out of their closets and went with it. i think that is the key to being stylish. your outfit has to look like you haven't thought it trough. almost everyone owns these clothes. you just have to know how to combine them. if you have style, you don't have to bent over backwards to look good. things just work for you.

the reason these pictures will look good 20 years from now, is because you don't see any trends. i'm not sayin i don't like trends. i just think you shouldn't renew your wardrobe as soon as a new trend arrives. get inspired by trends, not taken over.
minor effort equals major coolness when it comes to getting dressed in the morning.

this look will make your waist look really small. a great way to create that hourglass figure.


stud your stuff

no really, do it. if it's your style. it's such a fun and easy way to customize your basic clothes and make them special. it creates that glamrock look (that i totally love). it toughens up your sweet look and makes it special. just remember to practice on
an old shirt first, so you don't get ugly holes in your gorgeous clothes. and if you get tired of them, the studs can be easily removed. but like i mentioned, be really careful. for loose studs, spikes and tools check out www.studsandspikes.com
