As Christmas is coming in a few days, I love to go shopping to buy some great Christmas gifts for my family. It’s quite easy to get some lovely presents for my children and husband. For me, it’s more difficult to choose from all those fancy stuff. I always give some hints to my family 🙂

Prince-de-galles: an Eighties trend is back!

prince-de-galles

What is prince-de-galles?

To many fashionpeople, the Eighties were a time of overkill. Big shoulders created by shoulder pads were a big hit as well as crop tops and power suits.

In this blogpost, I want to talk about that other trend of the Eighties, namely the prince-de-galles pattern that is coming back in almost all collections of the big designers.

Trendy statement look with white boots

Morobé

White boots

White boots are a real upcoming trend this season.  I already spotted them on street style stars this summer like Gigi Hadid, Selena Gomez  and many other A-listers in different fashion magazines or pinterest pictures.

With white boots, you show that you are aware of the latest cool and they give your look that it factor.

Of course, there are so many different types of white boots. You have the elegant boots with small heels which you can find in high street shops like Zara.

My favourite’s are the cool hiking boots of MorobĂ©. This is a Belgian shoe label, based in Antwerp. It is a luxury brand created by designer Virginie MorobĂ© in 2015 for women who are attracted to street culture and elegance at the same time.

You can buy the shoes online but also in many selected stores like Noirboetiek. Check out the instagram account of Noirboetiek.

How to style white boots?

There are so many ways to style them, but it’s better to keep the rest of your outfit a bit simple, to draw the attention to your boots.

You can wear a colorful outfit but I prefer the black and white version as you can see right below. Combining black and white creates a very powerful look. Isn’t that what we all want?

When you want to create that urban streetstyle look, you can add a pair of black ripped jeans and a soft cashmere sweater.

Wearing them with a pencil skirt and chic blouse, or a long dress, you create a very sophisticated but still cool look.

So, it is time to make space for one more shoe in your closet: the white boots.

How to wear the oversized trend this Fall

oversized

Where did we pic up this trend?

The oversided trend is already a few years really into fashion.

Launched by high end fashion designer brands like Chloe, Gucci and of course Balenciaga, it has become one of every day streetlooks.

But the key is to wear it right, to keep a stylish look and not to create an outfit that makes you look bigger than you are.

How to wear the oversized trend?

When you go big on the top, you just need to go slim at the bottom and also the other way around. When you do both, you look massive and that is just the point you want to avoid.

As you can see right below, I’m wearing an oversized coat as a cover-up. But underneath it, I combine it with a smaller t-shirt and trousers to avoid that massive look.

Adding a belt is an other way to add a little shape and structure to your look.

As seen on this picture I took on the latest fashionshow of asuivre. They combine an oversized coat with belt and skinny jeans. Then you still add that feminine touch to your look.

What about the accessories?

With oversized clothes, less is more. As you draw the attention to the volume, keeping simple the accessories like your shoes, bag and jewelry, is the best way not to look overdressed.

I’m combining my oversized sweater with a shoulder bag, which I wear as a clutch, and simple clean sneakers. My sweater is from Acne studios and I’m wearing it with my skinny trousers from Zara.

The bag is from Stella McCartney, it is the famous Falabella bag which gives my outfit a touch of grunge. I can wear the bag as a shoulder bag or as a clutch.

The sneakers are from CLOSED, a great German brand, known for its pure quality and understated look.

I’m curious on how you wear this trend.
