CASUAL CHIC

THE PERFECT SHAPED BLAZER I think I've told you enough times how much I love those casual chic looks, right? In my opinion they're just the best from the best. Nothing is more daytime wearable. Having an outfit on point looking chic yet feeling super comfortable is the key. As I'm always saying, fashion is a game and you can change the rules every day but some simple things are just facts that can't be changed. I'm not saying that this is always the case but most of the time, less is definitely more. Especially if we are talking about daywear. Who doesn't want to stay comfortable during a long day but still having an chic outfit which looks like a lot effort? I really do believe that sometimes, we are thinking way too much about an look.

Most of the time on a daily bases it's better to just stick to the good old basics because you can never go wrong with them. I don't know how many times I've talking about basics and key pieces but that's such an important topic in the fashion world. Every good outfit is based on at least one basic. This outfit I'm wearing today is one fully based on basics, lol. Skinny jeans, simple plain white shirt and a perfect shaped blazer - which brings me to my next point: The blazer. Besides a perfect pair of skinny jeans (I was talking about that in my last article HERE) a black blazer with a perfect shape for your figure is also very important. It's a perfect piece to built up an outfit and makes every oh-so-casual look a little bit more chic looking. With a blazer it's kind of similar to skinny jeans - they are so many different shapes and textures so everyone is able to find their perfect one. I really like it when a blazer has this structured kind of look and a little bit of shoulder pads with a casual yet sophisticated look to it.

SKINNY JEANS

HOW TO FIND YOUR PAIR OF... Skinny Jeans. Since some years now they've become THE key piece in every woman's closet. Or let's say it that way: No closet is completed without a perfect pair of skinny jeans. But how to find the perfect one for you? For your body and for your silhouette? Well, it's actually quite easy but you do have to look for some things. A few days ago I realized that I don't have a perfect pair of skinny jeans (only some old ones that don't fit me anymore or I've worn to death) so I decided to give it a try again and search for my perfect skinny jeans. I knew that I didn't want a plain one so I looked for slightly destroyed ones in particular. Since I absolutely hate buying jeans in stores, having to try them one is always such a struggle... I think you know what I mean. Exhausting as hell if you're running from one store to another and trying one several jeans.

This time it went pretty fast though and I just had to go to one store until I found her. When searching for skinny jeans you have to keep in mind that they are three different ones: Super skinny, skinny and straight (I know some people might say straight is not skinny, but for me personally, these jeans that are called ''straight'' are looking skinny as well). I prefer the super skinny ones just because I like it when it's really tight and fitting down on the ankle. Next thing would be the color, or better said the washing. I think if you're searching for THE perfect skinny jeans it has to be a typical blue jean one just because every woman should have at least one in her closet and you can combine it with basically everything. Casual or elegant - both works. Another thing you have to keep in mind is the waist. Low rise, medium rise, high rise? That totally depends on your body type and figure. Especially those low rise jeans are not really flattering for most of us so I always prefer medium or high rise. This one is a medium rise which makes it perfect for everyday wear and you don't have to worry that much about eating too much, because we all know the struggle when wearing high rise jeans and eating too much, right? Medium rise is much better then.

THE JACQUARD DRESS

ALL BLACK EVERYDAY Autumn? I'm definitely ready for you. I think I've told you this at least one time before but I actually wasn't a dress person years back, at all. I was always wearing jeans and pants in general... maybe sometimes a skirt but dresses? No, not really. These last couple of months or even years I got more and more into a dresses lover and even have a little collection now. I'm always on the hunt for new daytime wearable casual yet chic dresses and especially now with autumn waiting right around the corner I really wanted to have a perfect autumn dress which you can wear on a daily bases. This jacquard dress is perfect and immediately caught my eye whole browsing around online. 

I think the jacquard fabric is going to be a huge trend this season and I absolutely love the look of it, especially for dresses. This dress has the perfect shape because it's so simple and almost like a shirt dress. It's short sleeve which is perfect for wearing a blazer or leather jacket on top of it when layering. Jacquard is a fabric with an intricately woven pattern which always reminds me a little bit of the baroque style. Also, the pattern is not printed or dyed on like most of the clothing, it's incorporated into the weave which makes it look very high-quality. You can find the jacquard fabric basically on everything - dresses, pants, shirts, jackets... and there's something for every budget. What I really like about the jacquard fabric is that it's kind of thicker which makes it even more perfect for autumn and winter season. For this look I wanted to go for a more casual but still chic look so I decided to go with black tights and flat elegant shoes. It's super easy to change up the look tho... just throw on a pair of pumps and maybe a blazer.

FLOWING WAISTCOAT

NEW FOR FALL With fall waiting for us right around the corner we have to check out the newest fall trends now. Being up-to-date in fashion is not always easy, but if you start early enough, you'll be alright. Right now the weather over here in Berlin is still crazy hot but I already planned and wanted to show you some fall inspired looks. Probably one of the biggest trends for this upcoming fall season is the waistcoat. Inspired by our beloved men it's THE new it-piece in so many variations. I have to admit that it wasn't love at first sight for me... but after some time always seeing it online while browsing around I kind of got into it. I gave it a try, ordered it and fell in love. This little thing is so versatile and can be worn in so many different ways and it's perfect for layering.

And let's be honest: Fall is all about layering, isn't it? It's by far my favorite season when it comes to fashion and I know I'm saying this all the time but it's just the truth. You can get the most out of the newest trends for fall because the weather allows you to do it. It's not too hot and not too cold so you can really play around with all different materials and textures. For this look I decided to wear the waistcoat on top of a white blouse so you can see the contrast. But that's just one way to combine this piece. You can also wear it just on top of a simple top or underneath a leather jacket for that extra silhouette. You can wear it open like I did for a more casual look or knotted for a more business kind of look. The range is huge and goes from short to long, from oversized to fitted and from casual to elegant. I love how one piece can be designed in so many different ways and for every style suitable.
