 Matching Stripes

Matching Stripes.  What pops up in your mind when you think of stripes? I always imagine a beach outfit to wear while eating an ice-cream on the marina, during summer holidays. Ah that’s wonderful!! Black and white stripes, a pair of sandals, Panama hat, shorts and a shoulder bag. Ready to go!! But, why not, also in town stripes can be OK: extremely elegant e super cool this summer (Take a look at the designers’ proposals on the catwalk…).Have you got any idea for a striped city outfit?

Matching Stripes. From the City To the Seaside… and Back!

HORIZONTAL OR VERTICAL? you’ve probably heard it a thousand time, but, it’s worth repeating: horizontal stripes make you look broader while vertical stripes had a slimming effect. This a visual effect. So stripes can help us with our shapes: pick horizontal striped t-shirt and shirts if your torso is smaller than hips and legs and vice versa. The effect is guaranteed!
STRIPES WITH.. STRIPES, POLKA DOTS OR FLORAL PRINT. Is a Trend! Match stripes with stripes (with different thickness and color) or with polka dots or floral print. Try it yourself! (or just copy & Gabbana!)

ONLY ONE DETAIL.. SHOES!: What about just one striped accessory? Pick striped shoes: surprising and fun!

Folk and Boho Chic style: summer looks inspired by Coachella!

The Folk and Boho Chic style is kind of hippie, but in a modern way, and is a big trend for street style for this summer 2015! So Coachella, the big musical festival dedicated to indie music that takes place every year in California since 1999, is a great source of inspiration for our looks, to be replicated both at the sea and in the city;)

Folk and Boho Chic style: summer looks inspired by Coachella!

Here are the key points to create your own Folk Boho Chic style:

– High-waisted shorts, possibly in denim
– Lace or embroidered shorts
– White lace top
– Panama hats
– Turbans, headbands and clips (HERE I have told you how to wear them!)
– Long floral dresses
– Fringing (on bags, jackets or waistcoats) (HERE I have told you how to wear them!)
– Sandals with wedges, possibly leather and wood
– Boots (only if worn with shorts)
– Giant sunglasses
– Lots of necklaces

H&M has also created an ad hoc line dedicated to Coachella in stores now ;) Here’s your inspirational gallery of looks that I liked the most, and which perfectly embody the Boho Chic and Folk style that I love. What about you you? What do you think?

P.S. Do you want to BROWSE MY LOOKS? Be inspired by my new search engine! Don’t know how to match a certain item? Or you simply want to browse through my closet? Select an item or accessory and then select a colour. You’ll find all the looks in which I wore that kind of garment, or that particular colour. Try it here: http://www.ireneccloset.com/looks

Palazzo trousers and culottes, a super trend for 2015: leg-lengthening and they look great on everybody!

Palazzo trousers and culottes, a super trend for 2015: leg-lengthening and they look great on everybody!

Palazzo trousers and culottes. Palazzo trousers, those broad, straight legged and possibly high waisted trousers, are back with a bang. And I have to tell you, I’m super happy! They are truly elegant, minimal, feminine and look good on everyone, just choose the right length;)

– CLASSIC PALAZZO TROUSERS: High waisted, straight leg length that covers the shoes. For smaller girls, try with heels or wedges: they will make your legs look endless! For taller girls they work even with flat shoes, loafers, oxfords and sneakers.

– CULOTTES: they are those which are wide and come down to mid-calf or above the ankle. They are super trendy and the most fashionable at the moment but shorter girls must be careful and wear them with heels. For taller girls, try with sneakers or slipons, nice!

 – IDEAS FOR OUTFITS: mannish shirts with heels or classic t-shirt, belt and leather jacket or even patterned shirt or tartan and leather belt, for a 70s style look.
