Splashes of colour, Animal Prints and Neo-Gothic

Summer Looks 2019

Looking at the trends for this summer feels like a walk on memory lane. Don’t get me wrong, I love them, but I can’t hide the fact that they remember me of all the fashion magazines I was stealing from my mother. Those are my favourites so far:

Wild Prints

First of all, I was never a fan of animal prints, I just recently came to accept them and actually buy a piece. But be aware, animal print can easily fall in the bad fashion category, you can end up pulling a look even worse than the ones from Coachella. What made me change my mind is actually the Versace Collection from 2018, it was like a new innovation for me, it opened my eyes and gave me enough courage to experiment. Those are my favourite looks so far:

Coloured tartan

2019 was the year of changes for me, and my personal style and wardrobe were no exception. I slightly moved from black and white from head to toe and I added bits of colours at first through accessories, purses and bags. It was the perfect timing considering that I can easily move to punk rock with a pair of coloured tartan trousers or skirt and a white shirt. I used to wear this a lot a while ago and I’m really glad it’s back again.

Favourite looks so far:

Neo-Gothic

My personal favourite so far because you can easily get creative with it and personalise it as you wish, making your own edgy style. All black with an animal print skirt? Yes please! Even though it is not something I would wear during summer, I melt in a white dress, I really don’t want to know what happens all in black, it is a look that I always adopt as soon as September and replace it around May. Neo-Gothic will always be a first choice for me, I feel I can express myself, therefore I feel more confident.

Have you tried any of these so far?

Summer Looks 2019

Uitandu-ma la trendurile din aceasta vara am impresia ca pasesc inapoi in trecut. Nu ma intelegeti gresit, majoritatea imi plac, dar nu pot ascunde faptul ca imi amintesc de toate revistele de moda furate de la mama mea cu ani in urma. Am reusit sa fac o selectie din tot ce avem la dispozitie iar acestea sunt preferatele mele pana acum:

Wild Prints

In primul rand as vrea sa va spun ca nu am fost niciodata fana a animal printului. Abia de curand ce am ajuns sa il accept si chiar sa imi cumpar o piesa vestimentara. Dar fiti atente, animal print-ul poate cadea cu usurinta in categoria ‘prost gust’. Tinuta trebuie aleasa cu grija, altfel puteti sfarsi cu un look mult mai rau decat cele de la Coachella. Ce m-a facut pe mine sa imi schimb parerea a fost colectia Versace din primavara anului 2018, a fost ca o noua inovatie pentru mine, parca mi-a deschis ochii dandu-mi suficient curaj sa experimentez.

Coloured tartan

2019 a fost anul schimbarilor pentru mine iar garderoba si stilul meu personal nu au facut exceptie. Am facut trecerea de la alb negru din cap pana-n picioare prin intermediul accesoriilor, al posetelor sau al gentilor, pana cand incet, incet am ajuns de la pete de culoare la tinute compuse in intregime. A fost sincronizarea perfecta avand in vedere ca acum pot trece cu usurinta la un still punk rock cu ajutorul unei perechi de pantaloni tartan sau al unei fuste cu un tricou alb. In trecut obisnuiam sa port asta foarte des si ma bucur ca a revenit inapoi moda.

Neo-Gothic

Neo-Gothic este preferatul meu de pana acum si asta deoarece poti fi creativa cu usurinta, adaptand-ul dupa bunul tau plac. Toata in negru si o fusta cu animal print? Yes, please! Desi nu este ceva ce as purta pe durata verii, este un look ce il adopt mereu incepand cu luna septembrie si este inlocuit undeva prin mai. Neo-Gothic-ul o sa fie intotdeauna o prima alegere pentru mine, simt ca ma pot exprima mult mai usor, facandu-ma astfel sa ma simt mult mai increzatoare.
