Mix & match: playing with prints

Mix & match. Pairing lots of colours in one look isn’t easy (If you find this tricky, have a look at my guide on my blog for how to combine different colours!), let alone pairing lots of different coloured prints and patterns altogether. However, with a little bit of practice it’s actually not so difficult. The trick is to mix contrasting patterns but make sure they all have the same colour spectrum (in my case here, red and white), and to wear them with neutral accessories (in my case black, but white or grey would also work well).

Mix & match: my print-clashing look!

So I’ve gone for a long red and white coat, a leopard-print skirt (but one with red and white details to continue the colour palette), a black and white striped shirt and black accessories. What do you think of the result? I’m very curious to know what you think ;)

The oversized look: go for a size bigger!

The oversized look: go for a size bigger!

The oversized look. One of the biggest trends of recent seasons that was seen on both the catwalks and in streetstyle was that of wearing clothes in bigger sizes, while layering garments of different lengths on top of each other.

The oversized look: go for a size bigger!

The idea is certainly unique: wearing clothes that look too big for you is definitely not for every day! However I decided to try out this style during Milan Fashion Week… with a totally oversized look, including a long coat, a pair of palazzo pants, and a white shirt stolen from my man’s wardrobe. The result? Here it is!

Stella Jean. With today’s post I’d like to introduce you 3 items that will be perfect in your wordrobe this month :) Designed by the great Stella Jean, the amazing Italian designer with Haitian origins (if you don’t know here look up on-line to see her unique and cheerful style and her bold color combinations!), they’re part of the new capsule collection exclusive for Oxfam Italia, Coin Excelsior and Coin!

The purpose of this project is to create jobs and support local communities in Haiti. It’s one of the initiatives of the project “Women’s Circle For Change” by Oxfam Italia in partnership with Coin. But that’s more. Buying this pieces you can actively contribute to projects like “Right To Be Heard” active in the area on the border between Haiti and the Dominican Republic, one of the poorest areas of the country. This project is able to guarantee a sufficient income for 20.000 farmers, mostly women. And since I’ve been near this areas I’ve seen with my own eyes how important is this kind of contribute, this project is incredibly important for poor people here! They need all the help you can give them. With only 5.000 €, for example, Oxfam will be able to build a point for water distribution both for fields irrigation domestic use, fulfilling the needs of 5.000 inhabitants.

Mentre sono in viaggio tra Valdichiana Outlet Village e Vicenza (e quindi primi di farvi vedere la tonnellata di fotografie che abbiamo scattato in questi giorni!) vorrei parlarvi della seconda edizione della capsule collection delle stiliste di “The Fashion Circle” per COIN: una serie di felpe disegnate da famose stiliste ed il cui ricavato sarà devoluto grazie a Oxfam alle donne che vivono nelle aree più disagiate del mondo (QUI per vedere la prima edizione dell’iniziativa)
