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


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


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 Morobé. This is a Belgian shoe label, based in Antwerp. It is a luxury brand created by designer Virginie Morobé 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.
