How to Wear a Tulle Skirt?

Friday, May 1, 2015

This week I read a very interesting article about Google's research on fashion trends for Spring 2015. According to the research, the most searched article of clothing online during the first four months of 2015 was a tulle skirt. To be completely honest, I was a bit surprised by this discovery but also I quickly reminded myself about my adventures with tulle skirt. Three years ago, at my birthday party, I was wearing a black 50's inspired sleeveless dress with full skirt with a light pink tulle lining. It was fun night and I fell great. This Christmas I purchased a black silver tulle skirt from Asos which I wore for holiday celebrations. I almost started thinking that a tulle skirt is not an easy piece of clothing to wear during the day without looking too much like characters of Sex in the City or just too dramatic.

I started looking for inspiration online of how to incorporate tulle skirt into your daily wardrobe and I came up with a few simple rules. The skirt itself draws a lot of attention so in order to tone it down, the outfit should be matched with simple well-fitted tops (white, black t-shirts, turtlenecks, solid color blouses). Avoid patterns, ruffles, to many details on your upper body to avoid the disco effect. For the evening occasions, you can try to experiment with long tulle skirts and to make it look modern wear them with jeans shirts or white men style shirts. (Although I recommend it to super tall ladies.) Simple accessories like bag or very feminine shoes in contrasting colors add a lot of chic to an every day outfit with a key element of a tulle skirt. I would recommend knee-length skirts with accentuated waist as those really elongate the silhouette. 

Spring and Summer is a great time to try to experiment with this trend, even if you do not usually play with risky fashion ideas! Have fun and enjoy the Spring weekend!

Recently I have seen two great fashion documentaries The Director, an intimate portrait of former Gucci creative director Frida Giannini and Viktor and Rolf: We're Worth It!. Those two movies, so different in their approach to who really stands behind the beautiful creations shown on the cat-walks and behind the store windows of luxurious boutiques, show in great details how much effort and creative process goes into making and marketing high fashion. 

Watching Gucci's and Viktor and Rolf's shoes, bags, perfume and clothing in those documentaries makes  you dream how great it would be to be in possession of such objects despite budget limitations. Yes! It is possible, especially if you treat that kind of a purchase as an investment into a classic piece that will  bring fast return thanks to cost per wear and the quality of those garments and  accessories. I researched some of my favorite places online where you can find one of the most amazing deals and very unique used or very gently used pieces from great fashion brands. With luxury consignment hunt, there are few rules to follow. You have to be patient, as you can find the best things when and where you least expect them. You will probably make some mistakes at the beginning, especially when you buy online. However, rest assure, those websites are very careful about checking the originality of their goods. Finally, you have to enjoy the process as it is a fun and exciting journey through the history of fashion.

I hope you will enjoy my recommendations above, which in my opinion are timeless, fun, beautiful and very feminine.

Please share what are your favorite fashion pieces and brands to buy from luxury consignment websites and your experiences with them.
Have a great week!

3 Fashionable Playlists You Need to Listen to this Spring

Wednesday, April 15, 2015

Fashion makes us happy in many ways, as this blog is trying to prove. However, apart from showcasing clothing and designers behind them, fashion is a serious cultural promoter. As many of you know, fashion brands are making serious efforts nowadays to be perceived as originator of trends and music is a big part of that process. 

As I wrote few months ago, Burberry has been promoting emerging musicians on their website. Check Acoustic. DJs and musician are fully involved in creation of catchy and surprising music soundtracks for each fashion week. 
This time, I decided to share with you 3 fashion oriented playlists that I really have been enjoying this Spring. First one is from Whistles and it offers quite a collage of tunes from new tracks to classics. Second playlist from Juniper Ridge, wilderness fragrance distillery, is a real treat for those who feel nostalgic about the seventies California music and, although I am not a surfer, I am totally addicted to those songs. Last but not least, for those of us who could not be a part of Coachella this year, Refinery 29 made sure to choose best songs from the listed artists.

Let me know what is on your Spring playlist! Stay fashionable and let music improve our moods every day!
