How To Wear the Fall-Winter 17-18 Trends? That Seventies Show Edition

The 70s.  Charlie’s Angels.  The original.  I’ve grown up watching these gorgeous ladies.  Hence, I’ve been super duper influenced by that show.  So I am more than disposed to rock that trend this season.

It was seen on Marc Jacobs, Prada, Chloé and Gucci to name a few.

The London Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2017-2018 Report

Hello,

After the NYFW, let’s have a look at what happened during its London counterpart.  I think that London Fashion Week (LFW) is probably the least popular of the four.  I’m not sure why though…

LONDON FASHION WEEK #LFW (February 16th – 21st)

It took place in… London, right after (with a day overlap) NYFW.

How To Wear The Oversized Sweater?

Hello girls,

If you live in Belgium (and I think it’s the same in Europe), you know that lately it’s been freezing!!! You’ve experienced temperatures that make you want to stay in bed (granted, I personally don’t need low temperatures for that.  But I’m sure there are some reasonable people out there – you know like adults – who feel that way). It is so cold that you’re even afraid to step foot outside. You’d rather stay at home, wrap yourself in warm blankets, and drink hot chocolate in front of a Gossip Girl or Pretty Little Liars marathon. And that, all day long… Isn’t it how you feel? Because it is how I feel (probably too often). And I can’t believe it’s just me. It cannot be just me, right?

Anyway, even if we wish we could stay home, well it’s not really within the realm of possibility! We have to be a grown-up and take our responsibility (yuck!). We have to get out of bed. And get dressed. And brave the cold. But do we need to be cold and look like crap? Oh hell to the no! One may think that it’s kind of hard to stay stylish with temperatures below the 0°C, but one would be wrong. When it’s crazy cold like that, I like to bundle up in huge knitted sweaters. And it’s not such a bad thing fashion-wise. Oversized sweaters (and sweater dress) are fashionable, so you can totally look super stylish when rocking one of these and still brave the cold.

Russian Baroque: AW16-17 Trend

Hello girls,

How are you doing?

Since it’s getting pretty cold right now, I thought it was time to see where we can shop some pieces that could keep us warm.  What do we want?  Faux fur.  Velvet.  Striking jackets or capes.  Statement jewels.  That’s the Russian Baroque trend, ladies!

Let’s see what we can find 🙂

Essentiel-Antwerp: a faux fur coat (available in different prints), a faux fur scarf, a bead encrusted necklace, a brooch, and a faux fur backpack.

How To Wear The Holiday Sweater?

Hello girls,

The holiday sweater.  No piece of clothing has ever sparked so much love and horror at the same time.  At least, between November and January.  If you type these two magic words into Google, you get a variety of images; ranging from cute to fugly, and including dorky and funny ones.  (Seriously, you have to try it!)

Why so much interest?  One of my favorite things in the fall, and I think it’s the same for a lot of you girls, is that I get to wear all my cosy, comfy, warm knitted sweaters.  Pure happiness.  The holiday sweater is all that and more!  It’s the same, but during the holidays.  In other words, it’s happiness²… ❤
