I Wish

Since this week was a little bit busy so far and I haven’t got the opportunity to take some actual outfit pictures, today I decided to share with you the six items that made it into my wishlist for the following month(s). It’s not a fancy list, but actually made out of items that I would use a lot during fall and winter and that have been on my mind for a while now.

Celebrity Summer Style – Kate Bosworth

When it comes to fashion and styling, you may already know that after many years, I still love to get my fix of new ideas and inspiration, from the celebrity “world”. Of course, over these same years, I’ve developed certain preferences, I fell in love with a number of stars, I have found my favorite designers and came across a series of inspiring ladies, that soon became true fashion icons.

Kate Bosworth is amongst the celebrities that I hold dear to my heart due to her uncomplicated, chic, effortless and always feminine aesthetics. Her street style feels fresh, natural and above all, easy to pull off.

Mixing Asos and Topshop, with Isabel Marant and Mulberry key pieces for example, Kate is an on-going inspiration, especially during summer. How do you feel about miss Bosworth?

Celebrity Fashion Crush – The Black Blazer

I personally have learned a lot about style from celebrities, how could I have not, when one of my favorite activities growing up implied tons of celebrity pictures, cropped out from magazines and then masterfully placed into what I loved to call – my fashion journals?

Now, I somehow try to carry on the tradition, as Oteea Land and Photoshop have replaced my old fashion journals, the glue, the glitter and the colored pencils. The joy of what I’m doing remained the same, though.

For some of the special events that require a more elevated look, we can finally give the LBD a well deserved break and switch for the androgynous style. As celebrity love it, the black blazer, paired with black pants, it’s now the chic way to go.

Celebrity-Fashion-Crush---The-Black-BlazerEmma Roberts opted for a relaxed but tailored look by pairing a black blazer, with black skinny pants and a simple white t-shirt. Alexandre Birman Spring 2012 Strappy sandals completed her outfit.

Jessica Alba looked flawless in Tokyo, wearing a black Tommy Hilfiger pantsuit, that she paired with a classic white shirt and complementary black pumps. Stylish!

Lily Collins worked the masculine trend by pairing a black Dolce & Gabbana blazer with a high-waist pair of Paule Ka pants. The delicate ivory ruffle blouse added a Victorian touch, as the look was finished with black pumps and a red box clutch.

Due to the endless styling possibilities – the Black Blazer is a wardrobe essential.

Celebrity Fashion Crush – The Givenchy Oversized Iris-Print Tee

Perfect for Spring and easy to style due to its versatility, the Givenchy Oversized Iris-Print Tee is already a celebrity favorite, being first spotted on trendsetter Rihanna, as she arrived at the JFK Airport in NYC on March 18. Today, actress Liv Tyler gave the Givenchy tee a spin, as she was seen leaving her hotel in Paris, France.

What I love most in this cases, is how the different styling and the personal touches, make both looks equally unique and inspiring.

Rihanna’s edgier approach teamed the black/purple Givenchy Oversized Iris-Print Tee with a casual pair of ripped blue jeans and the Alexander Wang Daria Suede Combat boots.

A JOYRICH Bone Collection Boston Bag, a gold collar necklace, black sunglasses and a selection of rings accessorized the cool look.

Rihanna's LookLiv Tyler’s more feminine styling, paired the hi-low hem Givenchy Oversized Iris-Print Tee with a classic black blazer and a textured black pencil skirt. Effortless chic!

The Givenchy Leather Strappy Sandals and a pair of oversized sunglasses complemented the elegant approach.

Neon Pink Delight

Good thing Spring of 2012 goes Neon, the world looks like a happier place when colored in bright hues, even more so in the warm seasons.

If the neon pink secured its place in almost every fashionista’s wardrobe by now, it seems like celebrities are falling hard for this trend as well, as both stars Jennifer Lopez and Beyonce Knowles, gave it a try this past week. And guess what ? They both looked amazing.

B&J---Neon-Pink

Jennifer Lopez was first spotted wearing this Super Pink (as she sweetly named it) Michael Kors Resort 2012 Long-sleeve High Slit gown, on the American Idol’s last Thursday show. She paired it with Gucci Leight T-Strap sandals and styled the gown with hoop earrings, various rings and a Hermes Collier de Chien Cuff bracelet, that she seems to be wearing a lot lately.

Beyonce Knowles was spotted in New York City this Thursday (March 29), wearing another colorful and relaxed ensemble. Her outfit, mixed a Michael Kors neon pink number, in the form of a featherweight cashmere long-sleeve sweater, with an Etro abstract print maxi silk skirt. A black Alexander Wang Devere Side-Zip satchel, circular sunglasses and a black hat completed the look.

Will you be wearing neon colors during Spring & Summer? Or they are too much for your taste?

Celebrity Fashion Crush – Denim On Denim

The fact that denim is so in (whether it was ever out of style) right now is no longer a surprise . It’s actually a quite refreshing, wearable and smart trend, for those who care to wear it, of course ! But lately, celebrities have been pushing this style one step further, as they are now casually pairing denim… with denim.

Even if it looks quite simple to wear, to actually wear denim on denim right, it’s not such an easy task, especially if you want to avoid walking around in the so called Canadian tuxedo.

Denim-On-Denim

Sporting a relaxed fashion on her free time, many might say way too relaxed, Charlize Theron was recently spotted wearing denim on denim, and she wore it right. In order to avoid the look from becoming to mathcy-matchy, one must always mix denims of different hues, in this case the lighter denim of the shirt, was paired with dark skinny jeans.

Even style icon Kate Bosworth seems to enjoy this emerging trend, throwing a simple white tank in the mix and being careful to balance the look – she teamed an ombre loose buttoned shirt, with fitted skinny jeans. Cause not everybody enjoys a baggy outfit.

Rihanna must do everything her way, and we love that about the successful singer. Her particular look mixes a lightweight denim shirt, with bleached denim spike-studded rhinestone cutoff shorts, layering another denim shirt, tied around the waist and tucked into the shorts. Too much ?

As for the accessories, you cannot go wrong with sunglasses and boots, either ankle boots, knee-length or as seen on Rihanna, the Christian Louboutin Sea.nn Girl thigh-high leather boots.

Finishing touches: Charlize styled her look with a Christian Dior Cannage Medium tote, Kate added JewelMint accessories, whilst Rihanna opted for a cool Trapstar Dream Team cap.

How do you feel about this trend ? Would you wear it ? Let me know, XO

The Statement Necklace

I’m talking about one of my newest fashion crushes here, as I somehow managed to neglect this category over the past two months. I know that this statement piece gained her first fans quite a few years back, but for me – the subtle jewelry loving type – the transition was a little bit slower.

I started by liking this trend as worn by celebrities on the Red Carpet, when suddenly the statement necklace became a key piece for any respectable fashionista, as the street fashion took a new spin. And as it is easier to admire trends on others, rather than actually giving them a try, another while past between me acknowledging the trend, and me actually feeling comfortable wearing it.

Below you can find a short selection of beautiful necklaces that I would love to wear during Spring or Summer this year, and also my favorite ways of centering an outfit around the jewelry piece.

Fashion-Crush---Statement-Necklaces

1. Piperlime – Beaded Statement Necklace in Aqua Green – $24

2. stella & dot – Birds Of Paradise Necklace – $ 133.50 (on sale)

3. Threadsence – Tahitian Goddess Necklace – $22

4. ASOS – Silk Cord and Looped Statement Collar – $32.23

5. stella & dot – Cortez Bib Necklace$49 (on sale)

Although styling an outfit with a chunky necklace should be fairly simple, considering the infinite options we are given, paying extra attention to details won’t hurt. The right necklace should fall right into place either you are trying to achieve a super casual look, or an extra sophisticated one.
