#OOTD - Spring Is Here!

Spring Is Here!

I don't know about you but I'm SO happy it's officially Spring. We can finally store away those heavy, oversized (itchy) Knits and dark, depressing colour palettes to replace them with light, fresh, printed and colourful Spring wear.
For my first Spring outfit of the day I decided to wear dark denim MOM jeans from Mango, I rolled the bottoms up as they are a loose fit. I accessorised the jeans with a black, velvet belt with a gold buckle, from ZARA. 
Finding the perfect MOM jeans has been a mission in itself for me. For some reason brands seem to size MOM jeans in a strange way, meaning they make the sizes ridiculously SMALL! I am not even exaggerating when I say I have ordered or tried on in stores about 20 different MOM jeans in the last two years and none of them have fit me! I am usually a size EU 36/38 in jeans and every MOM jean I have tried on in this size, literally doesn't go past my thighs! The MOM jean originated from the Vintage high-waisted Levi 501 style from the 80s/90s and brands have all replicated this style of jean. The MOM jean look should be high-waisted and baggy not a skinny jean.
So after trying on all these different MOM jeans and returning all of them, I finally decided to order a Vintage style MOM jean in a dark denim from Mango, two sizes up from my usual size! For those that have struggled like me, to find that perfect MOM jean I would recommend you do what I did and order a size one or two above your usual size or search for a Vintage MOM jean as they are usually sized and fit correctly. I would have preferred a pair of original Vintage MOM jeans ideally but that wasn't an option for me as they lack in Vintage stores where I live in Switzerland.
Back to my #OOTD, I wore a basic, black vest top from ZARA and tucked it into the Mom Jeans and I wore a long, oversized, black blazer on top, also from ZARA. A black blazer can do wonders to an outfit! Not only does it dress up casual wear, it is also super flattering! In my case, body wise, I don't feel Spring/Summer ready and I feel a bit bottom heavy and so the blazer was a great tool to use to hide that factor. Blazers also look great with cute, spring dresses, bike shorts, anything really! The blazer materials are usually light which means they are great to keep warm in the Spring cooler temperatures and it doesn't make you profusely sweat when wearing it in the sun either.

Blogger Recommendation: Purchase a basic oversized blazer this Spring, get it on your shopping list!
I then accessorised the outfit with a straw hat with black ribbon detailing from H&M, (I LOVE a straw hat in the Spring). I wore this with round, black, 90s style sunglasses also from H&M, a gold multi-chain necklace, leopard printed sandals and a black netted bag, all from Topshop. I am a big fan of the Leopard print's colour palette of tan hues and I think the colours look great with dark denim, white and red. Also I think string and straw bags are going to be a huge street trend again this year, as it was last year.

Spring/Summer 2019 Trends: Part 1

Spring/Summer 2019 Trends : Part 1
With Spring fast approaching, (can you believe we are in March already?), we wanted to touch base on the key S/S19 trends, just so you can prep your new season wardrobe in advance. Who else is ready to store away large knitwear and puffer jackets? I know I am! We have broken down the TOP trends this S/S19 in a two part sequel which will list the top 5 trends in each post. 
So what should you expect this coming S/S19 season?
Get ready for some serious Hippy and 70's vibes with the Tie-dye trend. This trend is the one to watch this S/S19 as it was the most popular trend seen on the runway this season, seen at Prada, Dior, Prabal Gurung and MSGM. Who doesn't love a Tie-dye print on the beach?
Bike shorts are back with a vengeance! This trend was HUGE last Summer and was introduced onto the scene by street style influencers and I guess a handful of celebs. Designers obviously took note and brought it back this season with their own luxury twist. The bike short trend was seen on the runway at Chanel, Roberto Cavalli, Fendi, Prada, Mugler and Miu Miu.
Bows were a key significant statement feature on the S/S19 runway, mainly seen on formal wear dresses or neck-ties. The bigger the bow, the better with this trend, seen at Marc Jacobs, Erdem, Celine, Valentino, Miu Miu and Moschino.
Statement Headwear is another key trend to look out for this S/S19, from oversized hats to headbands and headscarfs, anything goes as long as your accessorising your head and its unmissable! I think you are either a hat person or not, I am and I'm excited to see what options we have in store for us with this trend! Seen at Rodarte, Gucci, Chanel, Armani, Max Mara and Valentino.
Get hypnotised by our next trend, Print On Print. This trend is based on clashing several prints together and making it work. Prints such as florals, polka dots, pinstripes and more. Think of it as a collage painting and dress head to toe in all prints combined, you'll be surprised it's actually a good look!

On the 15th February 2019, streetwear and mega-urban retailer, Kith launched their collaboration collection with the luxury, Italian powerhouse, Versace. And what a fabulous collab it is! 
The 100 piece capsule was solely designed by owner and designer of Kith, Ronnie Fieg and then fabricated and manufactured in Italy by the Versace team. The collaboration collection includes Menswear, Womenswear, accessories and footwear. The range features Versace's iconic prints and logos but with a twist! Ronnie Frieg has redesigned the iconic Versace Medusa logo for this collaboration and incorporated the Kith logo across Medusa's eyes. 

The new capsule also interlinks the 90's theme in its designs and styling, as this time period is still a favourite amongst consumers and fashion shoppers!
For the Kith X Versace Womenswear expect to see; printed puffer jackets, cycling shorts, bralette's, trainers, mule-sandals, chained gold belts, silk shirts, leather trousers, bodysuits, coordinated tracksuits, caps, bumbags and jewellery. The collections minimalist colour palette includes Gold, Black and White with lots of Versace statement prints against velvet, silk, nylon and velour materials.
This collab is a prime example of urban street style meets luxury, as sports-luxe remains a key trend favourite.
