How to wear

How to Wear The Sequined Mini

In this How to Wear Ix27ve paired one of my closet essentials, the sequined mini skirt. The thing with sequins/embellishments is that it can easily feel x27over-dressedx27 or x27over-the-topx27. But itx27s all about the materials with which you pair it, and what you compliment with will dress it down. Ok I never speak dox27s or donx27t when it comes to style, since itx27s so individual, but Ix27d probably not pair a sequined skirt, top & a sequined jacket- with the exception for Halloween or a Hen party. So Ix27ve styled this mini from H&Mx27s fall/winter collection, in three ways that I feel dress it down but still work for a summer night out, a day at the amusement park or concert or even a day at the office (the mini over skinny jeans- assuming your office accepts jeans as a dresscode, the skirt on top gives the illusion of l being part of hem of the blouse) - to cocktails.

How to Wear Track Pants

I canx27t count the number of times I come home from work and the first thing I do is put on my comfy track pants. Theyx27re my go to when Ix27m knackered, fashion-tired and just wanna watch a movie with a bowl of popcorn in my lap. But the track pants donx27t only have to stay at home. Pair them with heels and a fun tee for a night out, with a jeanshirt, sandals and cap for a casual weekend look, or go full on into sport mode, with trainers and add a leather jacket for some dressed down cool. Track pants from Adidas by Stella McCartney. Click on the pictures to see where the items Ix27m wearing are from. Tumnagel

closet essentials Tees & Tanks

Herex27s part three of x27closet essentials- how to style your wardrobex27. A sort of DIY, how to style your own wardrobe and what I think are the essentials for the ultimate closet. This time letx27s have a look into Teex27s & Tanks. A basic black tee, i prefer ones with a pocket on the breast. As for all your x27basicsx27, these are the items that make up your base in your closet, so go for quality! Wangx27s teex27s are worth the dime, but otherwise H&Mx27s eco line have good bargains. Check out the material, choose a cotton blend and as for most things, avoid polyester. The one above is of course from Alexander Wang. A striped tee or 3/4 sleeve is always a safe bet, I have about 4-5 in my wardrobe, and Ix27ve miscolored just as many in the laundry! (damn those white stripes!) With jeans, shorts, skirts, for evenings out with leather pants or marine weekend getaways. DAY Birget et Mikkelsen. A silk tank or singlet is a good alternative to any tee, when you wanna feel a bit more dressed and Parisian chic. And how soft and luxurious doesnx27t silk feel? The one above is from Joseph, but theyx27re plenty of cheaper alternatives available for example at Zara. A camisole! For that fantastic 90x27s minimalistic look. The camisole highlights your shoulders. I think itx27s a lot more flattering focus attention to your shoulders and neck than, say your clevage ;-) From T-bags. A touch of color! Any tank or tee in a bright shade, doesnx27t necessarily have to be neon, but you all know how i feel for flourescent yellow these days. Splendid. A washed out slightly see through basic oversized tank, in grey or black. Pair with levis cut offs & converse for the ultimate daytime look or with sequined or leather trousers & heels for stylish evening. This one is bargain from Modekungen. An old college tee or band tee, perferably worn and washed out, have a look out secondhand. Topshop. And of course the perfect white tee. I still havenx27t found the ultimate for my closet, but ix27ve collected a few through the years. This one could be a contender however, washed silk tee from Kain. Tumnagel

closet essentials jeans & trousers

Ok so herex27s part two of x27closet essentials- how to style your wardrobex27. This time letx27s have a look at jeans & trousers. Dress pants- preferably in color. I love my teal green ones from Philip Lim. This is a fun way to look proper but still add some color and stick out. An alternative to the black dress pants. Think seventies with a little less flare. These ones are from Burberry Prorsum. Glitter, metallics & sequins! A fun pant (just like the fun jacket i talked about the other day!) I have my silver Acne skinny jeans and a pair of sparkly lace cropped pants. Pair with a simple white or grey tee. Itx27s a fun way to alternate the usual focus that most people tend to put on their shirt/top/or dress when going out, instead bring attention to your legs! A sure way to stick out. These sequined pants are from IRO. A good leather pant, like with the leather jacket, invest in real leather! Every wardrobe needs a little rock & roll! Richard Nicoll. A pair of jeans- of course- If youx27re gonna invest in one good pair- choose a light washed distressed jean. Always stylish and laid back. You can dress them up, just as easily as they dress you down. These ones are from Roy Rogers. A black skinny pant- be it jeans or a cigarette pant. I wear mine from Cheap Monday way to often. I prefer a high waisted jean (keeps that belly in place!) and itx27s easier to match with crop tops. From Preen Flare jeans. Think Jane Birkin, the 70x27s and pair with cork wedges, or a chunky heel. The think with flared jeans, is that they always come back in fashion year after year. Have a look secondhand or on E-bay. Levix27s have a great model called x27Marissax27 which have the perfect wash. The ones above are from True Religion. A colored pair of jeans- be it pink, red or yellow. A fun way to mix up your usual jeans. If youx27re not much for bright colors, try a pastel. J. Brand have plenty in different shades. J. Brand. White dress pants - When i got my white suit from Zara a couple of weeks back, it suddenly felt as if Ix27d filled an aching gap in my closet. White is always wearble, despite what they may say about not wearing it after Labor day! Crisp, fresh, and minimalistic. These dress pants are from Theory. Tumnagel

closet essentials coats & jackets

So you guys wanted me to write more about style essentials, how to style your own wardrobe and what I think are the essentials for the ultimate closet. So Ix27ve started a new theme on the blog x27closet essentials- how to style your wardrobex27. Ix27m gonna do this in steps and first of lets start with jackets and coats. A classic coat in black or navy blue is a must (assuming you live in a cool climate). If you work in an office where you have to be x27dressedx27 at all times, say for meetings or interviews, this is your lifesaver during office hours. The one above is from Preen. I love army jackets! Perfect for dressing down any outfit, long walks, & weekend escapes to the countryside. The army jacket is the ultimate jacket when you just need to through on a jacket and are in a hurry, say to the store or for an informal drink. This one is a real bargain from Victoriax27s Secret. They always say everyone needs a good trench coat in their wardrobe. It took me until about a year ago until I got myself one. And I love it. In my opinion the trench gives off a proper, neat and respectable look, although some may associate it with something else (peeping tom anyone?). The one above is from Modekungen. The leather jacket. I prefer them in a biker model, where there are more details. If you havenx27t invested in a real leather jacket, do so! The leather will only get softer and a nicer worn look with the years. E-bay is a good place to hunt, thatx27s where I got mine! Or check out this one from Lot78. Fur. Whether you want faux or the real deal. Itx27ll keep you warmer than anything else, and its nice on the eyes. If youx27re daring enough go for one in leopard print, I love mine, and it dresses up any old outfit! Paired with jeans and a tee you can suddenly look like a million bucks! This one is from Burberry Prorsum. And my last style commandment when it comes to outerwear, is a fun jacket! Something completely crazy, the kind of jacket you through on for a night on the town with the girls. Be it metallic, neon, print, or fringed like this one from DAY. Tumnagel
