Must Have(s) - Stripes

This ones for the basics guys. Keep a striped t/top on the corner of your wardrobe  for a day when you want an easy breezy casual look. 

For nothing says casual like stripes do, an instant lifter on short of new looks days and endless possibilities to pair it anything you can find in the closet.

A couple of things to keep in mind

If you are going horizontal,opt for a size bigger.
For stripes dress look - add one pop of color with accessories as emma griffith and Jessica Szohr.
Wear it as a single piece,very few can carry off a head to toe stripes look.And pair it with solid colors.
Pair with a well cut jacket for structure if you want a cleaner look.

Have Fun.

Spring looks - I Covet

While browsing through what could be Inspirational Spring looks,guess who stopped me on my tracks and made my eyes remain superglued to the screen? SIGH. Victoria Bekham.

Something for everyone (relatively speaking) the collection is a striking mix of smart dresses,day dresses and evening dresses done in tailored fit and a spectrum of  colors. LOVE the splash of bold yellow and mandarin orange hues.

I adore Zara for their contribution to the fashion - wallet conscious beings like us..just look at their evening collection if you are in any doubt - fabulous evening looks which are totally paparazzi worthy.

Whatever your style aesthetic is - rocker chic,feminine,diva, androgynous.....and i love that the pieces can be worn as great seperates..YUM.

As I said.. killing it, everytime..

Must Have(s) - Animal Print

So, enough with White and black, lets go and get a little wild, shall we?

Wardrobe essential No . 3 - Animal Print

Own one, any piece of animal print accessory in your wardrobe and see how you can have fun with your whole look. A Scarf,a pair of shoes,a hat, a bag or a clutch - This one addition can elevate your look to a young,fun and oh so chica in a flash. Just one warning though - want to blend in the crowd? then this one's for you.

An instant attention grabber that perks up any look, there is no accessory like animal print to spice up a look.Wear it with
all black, white, with denims, solids - so versatile,his one is a sure winner.

Word of caution - best when worn as an single accessory, you do not want multiple animal prints to clash.

And unless you are Kate Moss or have an attitude and Hot Bod to die for, stay away from this being your primary outfit, where animal print is seen,the eye follows.

Just remember, one last look in the mirror before you get out of that door..

Must Have(s) - Black Blazer/Jacket

Now that we are done with the first on the list, Its time for the mistress of cover ups,

Wardrobe essential NO.2 - Black Blazer(or Jacket)

Its official people, its ok to use a black blazer on any concievable outfit and what you get in return is instant chic. Check out the pics if you havent already seen celebs and fashionable babes across the globe(including you and I)knocking this look out of the park!

I mean how friendly can this genius item of clothing get? Wear it over your fav pair of jeans - skinny, distressed, straight cut,boyfriend with a simple t and flats/heels/boots.

an ultra feminine dress + killer boots + the blazer = edgy look.
a long flared skirt + flat boots + crossbody bag = bohemian look.

For the ultimate evening look, all you need a sequin top and tights or a short dress with heels. One last look in the mirror before you step out though..
