Meet my new companion

New companion

New companion auf polyvore

I have bought this biker jacket from H&M a few weeks ago but never had the chance to wear it because of the still cold weather in Graz. But today there was warm wind and nicer temperatures and I took out my new companion.

Despite that this jacket is not made of leather it has the typical biker cut with the asymmetrical front, zippers and snaps. I like its textured white fabric a lot, because it is more feminine than leather but is more appropriate for spring/summer than winter. Biker jackets can be worn both in a rock and a super chic variant. But I would never ride a bike with it! However, this jacket is easy to combine with jeans but also a cocktail dress. 

I took the more elegant road in black and white with a touch of gold from the scarf. More outfit combinations are yet to come. This biker style jacket will become one of my major wardrobe staples.

Wide pants love sneakers

Wide pants

Wide pants auf polyvore
As could have been clearly seen on the streets of New York, London, Milano and Paris during fashion month a trend erupted: many more wide pants than skinny jeans.

I also love my Marlene pants! Since I am tall, I like to wear mine with white sneakers. This way, the elegant pants get a cool note, which I love. But also petite women and female figures can perfectly wear wide pants. They only should combine high heels with them. The pants should by all means reach over the ankles. And it is vital to put a tighter top into the pants. Otherwise they might appear a little bit bulky.

Favorite spring trends - how I wear flower prints

Flower prints for spring/summer 2015 were present on the runways in all the big Fashion cities. I like this trend a lot, because you can style it very differently: romantic, casual or elegant.
Since it is still cold outside, I already like to get some spring clothes for my wardrobe. Inspiration Comes from Hollywood actress Emma Stone. In her beautiful flower Dress from Dolce & Gabbana she looks stunning.

Flower Power auf polyvore
Dresses with flower prints will also fit you. With cold temperatures outside I would wear it with a casual Cardigan and boots. In full spring you could wear it with heels or sandals with small heel. You won't need a lot of jewelry, maybe small earrings. With gentle Makeup and soft wavy hear, you will get a romantic look
When searching for beautiful summer Dresses I came across the online shop Alba Moda.  For instance, the maxi dress from Zucchero is very much my taste. With its flower print in pastel, another trend for spring 2015, and the loose fit it is perfect for a Hippie inspired outfit. Tan boots, a belt and fringe bag will complete these look. Can you see yourself in this Dress with a straw hat in summer walking along the beach?

Who joins me on the flower print trend? How would you wear this dress?

With Fendi culottes stay on trend and I am a big fan of these shorter wide trousers (like hereoder hereoder here). Max Mara is known for it's elegant looks and gets extra points from me for the beautiful set.

Black & White Looks with a little bit of color I think are very wearable. Also grey culottes are found with Les Copains and a sportive little black dress form und Sportmax I also like a lot.

Giorgio Armani uses purple a lot and I like it. The look from Ermanno Scervino I would wear today, tough I normally don't like over the knee boots. But this whole outfit only gets real coolness with this style of boots. There is a lot going on at Roberto Cavalli, but I think it's beautiful.

Marni presents turtle necks under button downs which ist very 70ies, Salvatore Ferragamo prints of the 70ies. And culottes or midi skirts at  Jil Sander

Particularly great I think are the wonderful flower print Dresses at Dolce & Gabbana. But also the black suit is perfectly tailored. The brocade Cocktail Dress is also amazingly beautiful.

Belt it!

Belt it

Belt it auf polyvore

Belts are still trend accessory this spring 2015. The focus is on the waist with various forms of belts from small to wide - choose as you like. 

Today, I wore a normal thick belt over a long blouse, which I unbuttoned. Open long blouses I wear a lot, for instance made of denim, but normally not with a belt. But I like this look and will it wear more often in the future. This outfit in black and white furthermore makes me look slimmer because of the strong contrast - I like! Then with the red fringe scarf I added more interest to this outfit and some jewelry in black, white and gold. I particularly love the bracelet from  H&M
