Fashion Picks: Layers in December

Fashion Picks: Layers in December

Cold autumn in Europe, even snowing here in the UK, where there has been quite a drop-down of temperature, so we need to layer up!

A Sweater/Jumper is a staple piece, and forgive me, but nothing was more fun than an 80s jumper! But now, everything is doable to use, and the ‘gram’ is the best way to show it.

While (not) travelling these past weeks, I had the opportunity to try out a couple of different pieces from Femme Luxe, as I have been working as an ambassador for them for a few months.

The clothing quality is very good, the prices are good, and they have a wide range that fits any type of body, any pocket, and any occasion. Check online for their flash sales or download their App to buy from your mobile.

 

Keep Layers comfortable.

Turtlenecks are on trend. Either a shirt/jumper or as a dress. Best of all,  pair up these High Neck Bodycon with the below jumpers, and you will look and feel comfortable and cosy, whilst still having the flawless look.

 

 

 

Show that Jumper!

Show the figure in that Jumper! Jumpers are everywhere. I chose (as obviously) a neutral tone such as Nude/Tan, but a black one if always THE choice.  You choose.

Play with jumpers details, with the colours and accessories and also why not try using them differently. Try Split Jumpers and give them a knot in the front, or use them with faux leather trousers. Comfortable is the new chic.

The Loungewear

Thank goodness someone remembered that Loungewear can actually be taken outside as long as it is well made and fitting well.

I brought back to the fashion posts these 2 pieces that are my absolute favourites and can be paired up, not only with the jumpers above (layering) as well as that wonderful coat below (layering).

 

Soooo comfortable and looks so nice!

 

This is a chi pattern to be used and fits any type and shape of body.

 

 

Long Coats

Here we are! To finish the payers this week, here is my fave coat of the moment. My love for coats goes through time and I think I have a coat of every colour once in my wardrobe. But nothing beat the Camel colour in coats, and on-trend this season.

Can be matched for any occasion as well as with most of the colours you have in the wardrobe.

For me this coat is a statement coat and no one, bless them, should be without one!

 

Don’t you DARE not have one of these in your wardrobe this season!

Fashion Picks for November: Cosy and Warm

Fashion Picks for November: Cosy and Warm

Can you believe it’s November and can you believe in 1 month till the end of this year??

What about this cold? Well, one thing I am sure of: I am keeping up with cosy now, working from home and grabbing a cuppa.

While (not) travelling these past weeks, I had the opportunity to try out a couple of different pieces from Femme Luxe, as I have been working as an ambassador for them for a few months.

The clothing quality is very good, the prices are good, and they have a wide range that fits any type of body, any pocket, and any occasion. Check online for their flash sales or download their App to buy from your mobile.

 

First of all: Be safe

(yes, this is a sticky paragraph, since masks can really protect you and your loved ones!)

We need them, our kids need them (especially for school!).

As many brands started to do masks, Femme Luxe was one of the first brands to introduce it in their sale platform: making masks affordable, reusable, and nice to wear!

Here are some of the types of masks you can find:

 

T-shirt Selection

Because even on cold days we need good and cute Tshirts to use with Jeans, under a coat, or why not make a front knot and with a long Skirt and a pair of Trainers? This Black ‘Couture’ Lip Print Oversized T-Shirt is just what you need for a bit of sass. Is oversized and made with excellent cotton touch.

Loungewear is Life

By now you know it! Loungewear is our daily life for those who still work at home, not meaning that we can’t still look glam our cute even if practical.

You cannot go wrong with the Black Joggers Loungewear Set: The top is cropped but with a nice length, and the joggers are cuffed which are great and practical wear, for either home, or the gym, and a nice walk with friends.

 

Black Boxy Cropped Hoodie Cuffed Joggers Loungewear Set

 

If you like bold joggers like me, to pair up with anything that you like, I have to share my new Lilac or baby Blue Cuffed Joggers. They are oversized but look so good and feel so warm.

 

For those Colder Nights

You can’t go wrong with a high neck knitted dress! You have it in several colours but this white one caught my eye. Size is a little big (oversized) so my “ML” is actually a 16/18. Lovely with a pair of high knee boots!… and oh so comfy!

 

 

The range of loungewear is excellent for those cold days and nights chilling out. From jumpsuits to cardigans, the loungewear selection is really life. Warm, practical and on-trend.

Fashion Picks for October: The Jacket Edit

Fashion Picks for October: The Jacket Edit

October is here and us getting back to Jackets is a must have because days are now shorter and colder. Best of all, we can now return partially to life, going out, watch a play, go dancing and having fun after work, so let’s make it classy shall we?

The good news is that Femme Luxe has a huge sale of 75% on their end of season collection and you can use the following coded to have an extra 15% off, making it an 90% reduction (use this code on checkout: GET15) and also have free delivery! Excellent to take a look at this.

First of all: Be safe

(yes this is a sticky paragraph since masks can really protect you and your loved ones!)

I still use it when around many people or at shops (your decision in the end).

As many brands started to do masks, Femme Luxe was one of the first brands to introduce it in their sale platform: making masks affordable, reusable, and nice to wear!

Here are some of the types of masks you can find:

 

 

Get the Jacket out

Yes, it is time to take those jackets out or for work or leisure to have at least a warm flannel shirt. Use it on its own or as a warm cover op. A warning: is seriously warm.

 

 

 

Jackets for Work

I like to have several pairs of classic blazers in my wardrobe, but this year the tendency is for soft colours. Even if you wear all black like me, nothing beats a bright pink or a baby blue blazer.

 

 

 

The Teddy Coat

A favourite since last year, the Teddy Coat is warm and comfortable to use. Can be worn to work or to everywhere to be honest.

 

 

 

The Puffer Jacket

Very popular in the 90’s, the puffer jacket is very particular in terms of shape. The warmest jacket ever and versatile as they exist in several colours or materials.

 

The Denim Jacket

Another big time favourite in the ’80s and ’90s but this time with a bit of a fluff. The Denim Jacket exists in many sizes, colours and shapes, also in several lengths, from crop to long.

 

Candy of the month:

Boots with a long coat are a statement that everyone should have in their wardrobe. I like it classy and knee high like the Delia Boots:

How To Get Your Man To Dress Better

How To Get Your Man To Dress Better

Are you interested in fashion? Have you put love, time, and effort into learning how to dress to flatter your figure, and building your perfect wardrobe? But when you go out in your gorgeous clothes with your husband or your boyfriend, does his attire not quite match up with yours and your level of effort?

Maybe he hasn’t figured out his own style rules yet, or maybe he’s just not into fashion in the same way that you are. If the man in your life doesn’t have much interest or care in his appearance, and it’s starting to bother you, there are some easy ways to encourage more interest without offending him. Here’s how you can do it.

 

Plan A Date For Shopping

Next time you’re planning a date, instead of heading to the movies or out for dinner, go shopping together for a few hours instead. Tell your partner how happy this would make you to do together, and promise to treat them to something nice for lunch while you’re out, and they’re more likely to agree to do this with you.

This tactic can work even better if you head out on your own for a bit of a scouting missing. If you know exactly where the clothes are that you think would suit him, you can make the trip more efficient and much faster, meaning he won’t get bored as fast. Use your time as efficiently as you can. 

 

Buy Clothes For Him

Buy clothes for him, either as gifts, or just because you were out shipping anyway and saw something you thought would be perfect for him. Just because he doesn’t want to go shopping, it doesn’t mean that you can’t. If you can, get your tape measure out and take your husband’s measurements so you know what size he is, so you can buy pieces that will fit properly.

When you do go out shopping for him, only buy clothes from shops that allow returns, so you don’t end up wasting your money if you get it wrong. Wait until he’s in a good mood to ask him to try on what you bought for him. 

When you go shopping for clothes for your husband, keep a few things in mind. Try to buy things that match his style and personality. This might be less on-trend than the clothes that you would choose for him in an ideal world, but there’s no point in spending your money on pieces that you love, but that he hates, and won’t wear or feel comfortable about wearing.

If you know he has some favorite pieces of clothing, replace those with good alternatives when they start to get old. Concentrate on quality rather than quantity. Men look better in good quality clothes. For example, a beautiful sweater from Balenciaga for Men will look a lot better than lots of cheap jumpers. 

 

Give Lots Of Compliments

When you notice him wearing something you like, make sure to give him plenty of compliments on it. If he feels good, he’s more likely to buy more, similar pieces, especially if he knows you fancy him dressed that way. 

 

Tell Them When Clothes Don’t Fit

If his clothes don’t fit well, he’s never going to look good. Find a polite way to let him know if something is ill-fitting, and suggest the changes that a tailor could make to make the garment fit properly. 

 

Make Sure He Owns Good Basics

Basics are the building blocks of a good wardrobe. Encourage him to buy:

  • Good quality polo shirts in his best colors
  • High-quality cotton pants
  • Some well-fitting shirts
  • Cashmere sweaters
  • A nice casual jacket
  • Good quality leather shoes
  • Socks that match his pants and shoes

 

Lead By Example

If you make an effort, he might want to do the same. If you want him to clear out his closest, do yours first and tell him you’re making a Goodwill run if he wants to sort his clothes too. 

 

Lay Out His Clothes For Him

This option isn’t for everyone, as it’s time-consuming and runs the risk of you feeling like his mother, but some women do lay out their partner’s clothes to make sure he looks good. 

 

Educate Him

Maybe he wants to look good but doesn’t where to start. If that’s the case, you can help him and direct him to men’s fashion websites or men’s style bloggers, and other places to find good style advice to help him learn. 

 

Fashion Picks for September: Back to Work Edit

Fashion Picks for September: Back to Work Edit

September is bringing back the Autumn time and while some and going back to school, grown-ups are going back to work and back to the gym (in my case I have been going regularly to both).

Good news is that Femme Luxe has a huge sale of 75% on their end of season collection and you can use the following coded to have an extra 10% off, making it an 85% reduction (use this code on checkout: GET10) and also have free delivery! Excellent to take a look at this.

Dresses

I don’t wear dresses too often, but when I do it’s because it looks good on me and there is a special event or place to go to.

I love a racer neckline, flatters my swimmer’s shoulders and makes it elegant, just like the Chantal mini Dress. This kind of dress is very minimalist. I opt to wear long earrings and rings.

 

 

 

 

Loungewear or gym wear

We have been living in loungewear for more than a year now, but since the weather is starting to cool down, we might need these a bit longer.

For the Gym, I opted out for something nice like loungewear with a crop top and matching bottoms.

 

You cannot go wrong with the Tracksuit Set: The top is cropped but with a nice length, and the joggers are cuffed which are great and practical wear, for either home, or the gym, and a nice walk with friends.

 

 

Candy of the month:

Boots. But make it classy in Black Faux Croc like the Gabrielle Boots:
