Outdoor #OOTD + A/W 14 trends

Beauty&Fashion

Hi!

I hope all of you are having a great Sunday! For this week’s fashion post, I decided to show you my favorite (recently) piece of clothing in action – my new parka. I have already done a post about it. (Click here). But now, I want to show you some photos of it in a normal light and how does it look when I put it on. I paired it with simple rolled up blue jeans and high top Converse All Stars sneakers. On my neck, you can see a mustard (orang-y brown) color knitted snood which I made myself. (DIY!!!). (Sorry for the weird color in the close-up photo – snood is much brighter in real life, like in the full outfit photo).

I am in love with this parka and I can’t wait for the weather to get cold so that I could wear it all the time. Moreover, according to GLAMOUR UK magazine’ September issue’s article by Lucy Walker, military details, edgy street-wear, faux-fur and hoods are trending big time and this parka nails all of these trends! 1 parka – 4 trends. What is more, I like the fact that high fashion isn’t taking itself as seriously as it did before. Ironic bags, T-shirts and dresses at MOSCHINO look cool and brighten my mood every time I see them. (Video from the runway show by ELLE.) I have full wardrobe of colorful slogan T-shirts which I am going to pair with neutral black or grey skirts, jeans or trousers so as not to upstage the main piece – fun T-shirt. In addition, knits are in fashion once again and a few shelves of sweaters and cardigans definitely won’t stay in my wardrobe unloved and unworn. Space elements are also hot this season and as a huge Star Wars and Guardians of the Galaxy (movie review) fan, I will finally be able to wear merchandise and looks stylish.

I hope you liked this short post about A/W 14 trends and how I will wear them. What are your staple pieces for A/W and are there any trends you fancy this season? Have a great week!

Haul: Autumn/Winter wardrobe UPDATE

Beauty&Fashion

Hello!

Recently, I have been shopping and picked a few really great pieces for my wardrobe. I want to share them with you and talk a bit about how I am going to style them.

The first piece is simple – my high top Chuck Taylor’s finally arrived. I’ve got classical all-stars Converse shoes made from white canvas.  They practically look good with everything: circle skirts, jeans, skater dresses, shorts and etc.  And who doesn’t have Converse shoes? Everybody needs at least one pair of them.

Price: 44 euros (I bought mine on Amazon)

The second thing I bought is this chiffon oversized sleeveless see-through top from NewYorker (My every haul has to have at least one item of clothing from NewYorker). It’s shorter at the front and longer in the back. It’s black with red lip stain print. I can see myself wearing it with skinny jeans and heels or boots and a black wool jacket, with body con skirt or even black body con dress underneath. I am also going to try it with a circle skirt and belt it at the waist.

Price: 3 euros – bought it on sale at NewYorker

The third thing is this TOPSHOP jumper. It really thick, a bit oversized and has pink/blue flowery print. I have been wearing it a lot, although, I’ve just bought it like 3 weeks ago. It’s really comfortable and looks nice with jeans and converse shoes.

Price: about 1 euro – found it at a second hand store.

P.S. I wore it today with skinny jeans and white converse. As an accessory, I put on three bracelets to complement each part of my outfit – white bracelet for white converse; pink and blue bracelets for the jumper!

The last piece I’ve bought is the piece I am most happy about. I have been looking for a good winter coat and couldn’t find one. But store BERSHKA was my savior. This parka style coat is super versatile. It’s in this dark brown mustardy color; has huge pockets and can be cinched in at the waist. It is also fur lined, so it’s super cozy and warm. The fur can be removed and I even think I can wear it separately! Parka without the fur is also great when the weather hasn’t gotten super cold yet. It’s like 3 coats in 1.

Price : 100 euros (Get it here)
