HOW TO STYLE DRESSES WITH BLAZERS FOR EARLY SPRING? OUTFIT PROPOSAL

Today we'll talk a bit about styling dresses in early spring. Generally speaking my advice would be to wear your dresses with blazers and lighter jackets/coats. If it's still cold, you could also add tights and boots to your outfit. That's what I've been doing lately. One great thing about spring is that you can style all kinds of dresses in this season, even summer ones. You can always layer to make your outfit more warm and cozy. To dress up your spring dresses, opt for dressier shoes and fancy bags. Similarly, if your want your feminine spring outfits to be more day time appropriate, you can always dress down your dresses with sneakers and (denim/leather/utility) jackets. Alternatively, you can also wear sporty or casual dresses to get that relaxed vibe. Not only is there a dress for every kind of style, there is a way to make almost any dress fit your style. It's all about figuring what works for you.

Today's outfit proposal for an early spring styling has several components: a vintage dress, a long blazer, a pair of boots, a straw bag and lastly a scarf tied as a belt.  I typically wear this pink pleated vintage dress in both spring and summer. The only difference is that in spring time, I'm more likely to pair it with closed shoes and/or tights, while in spring I wear it with sandals. Pleated items are quite trendy right now. I'm  definitely a fan of pleated dresses and skirts. A pleated item can give a perfect note of elegance and  sophistication to your outfit. This dress is pink with bluish tones, so I paired it with a navy blue blazer. I think these two items are a nice match. I tied my new chain print scarf as a belt. Isn't it amazing how many ways there are to wear a scarf?  There is another scarf in my outfit, the pink one I wore in my hair, I almost forgot about that one. The bag I opted for is a straw bag. It's all about those vacation vibes. This is a lovely time of year for fashion experiments and having fun with our personal style.

Do you like wearing skirts and dresses in spring time? I don't think I would go too far if I said that skirts and dresses are my 'go to' pieces in spring. The best thing about dresses is they come in such a great variety of styles. For example, if you are going for a more attractive look, you can always look for cute bodycon dresses. If you want to keep things more modest or office appropriate, you can opt for a more romantic cut. When it comes to spring time, I tend to wear dresses in all lengths: mini, standard, midi or maxi.  As of late, midi and maxi happen to be my first choice. If you don't have any in your closet, you can always look for midi or maxi dresses online. Glitter and metallic dresses are also a good option for spring. Recently I wore a gold one, and I loved it. The metallic dress I've linked to bellow is from Omnifever site. I think we'll be seeing a lot of metallic this spring and that goes for dresses as well. There are a lot of wonderful trends to choose from when we talk about dresses for spring. Before you go shopping, I would recommend you to check your closet, though. Sometimes we forget what we have in there and end up ordering similar pieces. My advice is to only buy things you know you will love and wear. That applies for dresses as well. Don't buy something that is trendy, if you don't like it yourself. There are so many trends out there right now, you're surely to find a dress that will fit both your personal preference and style.

A FEW MORE OUTFIT PROPOSALS  FEATURING BLAZERS AND DRESSES

Here are a few more spring outfits featuring blazers worn with dresses/skirts. Let me know which one you like best. Do you like to wear blazers in spring time? If yes, what kind of blazers are your favourite ones? What is your favourite cut and colour? I'm asking this question, but I couldn't answer myself. I like blazers in all shapes and colours. Still, if I could have only one blazer, I'd probably choose a classical black one because it is such a versatile piece. 

Thank you for reading and visiting. Have have you been? How has spring been treating you? Let me know. Have a great week ahead!

  4. Your dress is so cute layered and I like how you added the scarf as a belt and in your hair! Fun way to accessorise! :) I like layering my dresses up for spring and autumn, although I'm desperately waiting for it to cool off here so I can start doing that, haha!

14 WAYS TO STYLE A MAGENTA COAT FOR WINTER

Hello dear readers and fellow bloggers. The cold isn't going anywhere, so I'm back with more winter styling ideas. Today I've prepared for your another posts that shows multiple ways to wear a coloured coat. Coloured coats have been trendy for a while and it's a trend I cannot get enough one. Choosing winter outwear that works for you is so important in embracing winter fashion. If you remember, I already blogger about 30 ways to wear a short black coat, 18 ways to wear a long beige puffer and 20+ ways to wear a tartan blazer.  Now, this magenta coat is such a statement piece.  I've bought it two years ago and I've worn it many times since then. How many times I'm not exactly sure, but I did wear it at least 15 times on the blog. Altogether, I have 17 outfits with this magenta coat documented  and photographed (3 of which I wore last week). I'm actually a big fan of coloured coats because I feel they're such an easy way to add colour to our winter …

LAST MINUTE V-DAY DRESS OUTFIT IDEAS

Happy Valentine's day! Today I'm back with some last minute Valentine's day ideas. When I think of Valentine's day outfits, the first thing that comes to my mind is a dress. So, today I'm going to include some dress outfits I wore recently as well as some of my old looks including my old Valentine's day outfits. Looking back, I seem to always opt for a dress on Valentine's day. I like wearing dresses anyhow so wearing a dress on Valentine's day seems like a no-brainer. Throwing on a nice dress is such an easy way to create a feminine and chic styling. My first outfit proposal is a step back from the typical Valentine's day outfit as it features a checkered dress. This black and red dress is still quite feminine but the checkered print gives it a bit of rock chic. I wanted to keep the colours minimal and  the outfit functional so I wore it with  a brown faux leather coat  and camel boots. I accessorized with a brown tartan scarf and a black bag. Scr…

10 STYLE LESSONS LEARNED FROM MALENA/ MONICA BELLUCCI

With summer being in full spring, I caught myself thinking about iconic summer outfits. Do you know what came to my mind? Costumes/outfits worn by Monica Belluci when she played Malena Scordia in an iconic Italian movie set on Sicily.  The costumes for that movie were designed by an acclaimed Italian costume designer Maurizio Millenotti and he outdone himself! Seeing that Malena is a historical movie, Maurizio choose quite timeless outfits and cuts that will ever go out of style. That fact makes Malena movie the perfect place to look for inspiration! Moreover, I feel that Monica Belluci's personal style is quite similar to Malena's (i.e. to the style of the character she is playing). There is definitely a Mediterranean lady feel about Malena/Monica Bellucci. What says summer better than Mediterranean and Sicily? Today we'll analyze Malena's style and see what we can learn from her. There is much to learn! Having analyzed looks that Monica wore in iconic Malena film, I…
