100 years of fashion trends – how fashion has changed over time

We all know: Fashion trends come and go. One year is the latest craze, which will fly back into the garment bag next year. It is interesting to note that this is not a new phenomenon, because fashion has been reinvented time and again for over 100 years. Fashion was a kind of mirror of contemporary society, since the looks of men and women were always shaped by the circumstances of the time. If you take a look at the looks of the last century, you can also get an idea of what it was like back then.

The constant change in fashion

The video from Glam.com got to the point, don’t you think? It perfectly shows the different looks of the last 100 years, from the twenties flapper dress to the colourful hippie outfits of the seventies and boyfriend jeans from 2015. Whether on the street, at work, in sports or when going out, people’s outfits have undergone immense changes over the years.

If you look at the working world of the past, you will find nothing in the offices but suits, hats and fine shoes. Today things look different. What started with casual Friday has since been introduced by all employers every day of the week. Even in sport, fashion went through changes. Remember how short those soccer shorts were in the’80s? Those who are still stuck in the same trend of the past – but who knows how long – are the snooker players who still have to show up in their suits. The professional poker players are fashionably seen in a completely different league, they have nevertheless all liberties with the choice of the clothes. From suits to cowboy hat to football jerseys there was almost everything to see at the poker table.

Even here you can see how the trend of fashion over the years has turned into casual, less strict and chic, but comfortable and practical is now the motto. But until people came to today’s look, fashion went through many a social change. We’ve been looking a little closer for the last 100 years.

1920s – The Golden Twenties

Almost 100 years ago, the Golden Twenties, the Roaring Twenties. Not for nothing they were so called, as they were marked of a newly found zest for life, which was really celebrated in this time. Gold and glitter, sequins and feather boas, flapper dresses, headbands and for men dandy suits, suspenders and felt hats were the characteristics of current fashion. The woman’s waist was hidden under short, straight flap dresses, the hair was cut off. The androgynous look experienced its heyday here, after all the woman got a completely new position in society at that time – she even smoked now, but only with a cigarette holder, of course.
1930s – Traditional thirties

Unfortunately, the party mood of the twenties said goodbye to the economic crisis as quickly as it arose. In the 1930s, the style of women changed from glittering party outfits to elegant women’s fashion. The hip experienced a renaissance, which now came to light again with long, tight dresses. Costumes and blouses with large sleeves shaped the street scene. The style icon of this period was undoubtedly Marlene Dietrich, who at that time also made the long, wide trousers, which later became cult Marlene trousers, socially acceptable. Also hats were missing neither with woman nor with man. The latter largely retained their twenties style with suits and suspenders.

1940 – Circumstances make you inventive

For obvious reasons, fashion was radically changed in the forties. There was no material available for dazzling and elaborate dresses, so women had to become inventive and usually made their own dresses. New things were made from the old and to save material, the clothes were especially figure-accentuated. What you could see at that time were red lips. An accessory that should be bursting with sadness.

1950s – Rockabilly is alive

The society of the fifties finally came a bit closer to that of the twenties. There was again reason for joy, reason to enjoy life and to devote oneself to fashion again. Christian Dior laid the foundations for the typical rockabilly of the fifties as early as the late forties, when he placed wide-cut skirts with large petticoats in the shop windows, plus tight blouses that created the “new look”. A new style was also the order of the day for men. The suit gave way to casual jeans in the younger generations. White T-shirts and leather jackets formed the image of the men on the streets – James Dean and Elvis Presley say hello!

1960s – The Swinging Sixties

The sixties, also known as the Swinging Sixties, were marked by protest movements. Instead of bowing to old standards, people began to inform themselves and to stand up for their own cause. The rather romantic fashion of the fifties was disposed of without further ado; instead, they took to the streets in dresses with an A-line and miniskirts. Jackie Kennedy was the fashion icon at that time with her unconventional and rather simple look. For men, jeans and leather jackets continued to be the trendy outfit par excellence.
1970s – flower power of the hippies

Hardly any other fashionable era is as notorious as that of the 1970s, when the hippie movement conquered society. Striking colours, patterns and accessories reflect the feeling of freedom and individualism of that time. Men and women crammed into tight tops and tight jeans at this time, but extremely worn out at the bottom. Hair was now worn long by men and women, the upper lips of men were covered with beards, clothing was tailored and dyed in a colourful batik look, and flowers adorned hair and outfits alike.

1980s – The age of fashion sins

In the eighties one can say, stylistically it went quite downhill. Flat skirts and fine crocheted jackets gave way to shoulder pads, carrot pants, puff sleeves, perms and neon-colored XL sweaters with leggings – combination at will allowed. It was the time when the most diverse musical styles were celebrated, whether rock or hip hop. With her song “Material Girl” Madonna is probably the soundtrack of the eighties. The economy was on the upswing again, so we went to the department stores in search of the flashiest leggings and the bluest eye shadow.

1990er – A mix of styles

In the nineties, the world is changing, the Wall is gone, the world is reorganizing itself, travelling is becoming easier. There is a mix of styles that has been influenced by music and American influences. With Kurt Cobain, the grunge style with torn jeans and colorful dyed hair cannot be overlooked, Britney Spears gives with her school uniform look a new standard for the young female generation. There was not really a uniform look in the nineties, one simply dressed according to one’s own example. But there was a lot to see: huge sweaters and jewellery, jewellery, jewellery – at that time the motto was: More is more!

Today – Everyone does what they want

What does it look like today? People today enjoy their freedom, and that applies to both life and fashion. Individuality is the order of the day, trends come and go faster than you can see, from one trendy summer look to the next lie miles, who wants to wear the same outfit from last summer? In addition, male and female fashion are converging more and more. Skinny jeans are now also available for men, shirts for women, androgynous look. Life and fashion have become fast-moving, in constant motion. It’s no wonder that some of the fashion styles of the last century like to repeat themselves, after all retro and vintage looks could hardly be more trendy.

People’s fashion has always reflected social circumstances. The clothing style was chosen according to the current mood of the people. While in the decades between the Golden Twenties and the shrill Eighties there was always a very clear style of clothing, this has been broken up since the nineties, so that there are now many different styles of clothing. Our fashion is as individual as we are. What’s your favorite fashion epoch?

IVA NIKOLINA X NA-KD Store Opening + Interview and Styling Tips

NA-KD is known for a wide range of fashion and well-known brands. The great popularity of NA-KD is mainly among younger audiences, which is also due to the various collaborations with influencers. This time the online shop inspires with a collection in cooperation with the well-known fashion blogger Iva Nikolina. The beautiful Croatian, who lives in Germany, inspires almost 900,000 people every day at Instagram with her elegant style. With this collection she takes another step in her career and proves that she has what it takes to become a fashion designer.

+ AD + Do you know?

The collection – flowing fabrics, summer & great colors

In an interview Iva tells us that she wanted to create a collection that was perfect for the summer. She implemented this by not only integrating many dresses, but also using flowing and elegant fabrics. Her collection is characterized by a dark green tone and a magenta red. She combined these colours with some parts in white and rose. She designed a total of 25 pieces together with NA-KD, not only giving her followers the opportunity to shop their own style directly after, but also inspiring many to great own combinations with their clothes. The collection is probably just like Iva, distinguished by elegance and lightness.

The Event – Drinks, Talk & Shopping

For the launch of its collection NA-KD organized an event which took place in Breuninger in the city centre of Düsseldorf. There you could not only shop exclusively for the collection, but also meet Iva Nikolina personally. NA-KD organized a great afternoon with DJ, snacks, drinks and of course shopping.

IVA NIKOLINA x NA-KD – how to style the collection

At the event I was allowed to choose some pieces and now show you how you can combine and style the pieces from the collection. Among the styling tips you will find photos from the store opening in Dusseldorf!

Chiffon Short Dress – cute & with cool details

This white summer dress is very cute the outer fabric has small applications and is cut on one side. The cut makes it move very smoothly and the belt for tying is also a nice detail. I combined the very cute dress a little cooler with black boots, a black lace ballet and an elegant black bag. This gives the outfit a cooler overall look and still looks very elegant. The dress is very uncomplicated and fits simply super. The perfect summer dress to not be dressed too warm on hot days and still look great.

Short Flounce Short elegantly combined as a highlight

These great satin pants from the collection can be combined in many ways. It is perfect both for a walk to the beach and to wear in everyday life. I combine it with a tight black body with a lace adornment, which makes the trousers look even more elegant. Gold jewellery goes perfectly with the dark green of the trousers. I combine two gold chains with coin pendants and a watch with bracelet. The pants are perfect for summer days because they fit perfectly. It does not slip and adapts to all occasions.

Halterneck Off Shoulder Dress – the elegant all arounder

This Bordeaux colored dress is a real all arounder, because you can wear it very elegant for a special occasion with high shoes as well as in everyday life with boots or espadrilles. I combine the airy dress with boots and a belly bag. When worn like this, the dress looks fashionable and modern. This dress is also perfect for the summer and especially for warm summer evenings. Personally, I particularly like the flowing material. This not only feels incredibly good on the skin, but is also very high-quality and elegant.

Your holiday can start while packing your suitcase: So everything fits and remains wrinkle-free

The beginning of the annual holiday is approaching. Just the right time to deal with travel preparations such as packing a suitcase. Two questions are in the foreground: What belongs in the suitcase? How do I store the luggage as effectively as gently? We want to give you tips and suggestions on the most important aspects and reveal a trick on how textiles with light wrinkles become smooth again even without an iron.

+ AD + Do you know?

Basically, the luggage can be divided into five categories:

  • Documents / Key
  • first aid kit
  • Personal Care and Cosmetics
  • Clothing
  • Accessories / Technology

It is important to make copies of all documents and place them in different pieces of luggage. Thus, in case of loss, an emergency replacement is always available. In addition, important medicines should be in hand luggage when traveling by air. Otherwise, all jars, tubes and vials above the 100 milliliter limit are in the suitcase.

So much clothes should be there

The choice of clothing depends largely on individual factors such as personal needs, travel needs and local circumstances. A few basic structures have also proven themselves in very different situations:

  • On underwear and socks / stockings, at least one set should be included per day of travel.
  • Also the stock of t-shirts, polo shirts and shirts for men respectively Tops and blouses for the women should allow a daily change.
  • Trousers, skirts and dresses can usually be worn multiple times with a break of one day for airing. Does not mind, is sufficient for short trips every two days and for longer stays every three days a part.
  • Blazers, jackets and other jackets are packed according to personal needs. This also applies to headgear.
  • Depending on the nature of your trip, shoes for beach, city strolls, Outdoor activities, party, special occasions and of course needed for the room.
  • There are also sports and swimwear. Again, make sure that there is always at least one spare set in your luggage.
  • In addition to sleepwear, washcloths and towels round off the travel range of textiles.

By the way: Especially with connecting flights, it can happen that the suitcase arrives with a slight delay. So that the stay then does not have to start with an emergency shopping, it makes sense to pack at least a complete clothing set in the on-board case.

Pack the suitcase properly

So that everything fits into the suitcase, you can use some tricks when packing . All clothing that is not susceptible to creases will be rolled up. Socks and / or stockings can be stuffed into the mirrored opposite shoes. The lower portion of the case is filled with these heavier or insensitive parts. A strong pressure to compress is quite allowed. In addition, gaps can be filled with small parts. On top come pants, skirts, dresses, jackets, blazers and similar textiles. They are placed in the suitcase so that they protrude alternately right and left beyond its limits. After that, they are placed one inside the other from top to bottom. At the top, best in a separate area come the neatly folded blouses and shirts. Here are the best non-iron or easy to iron models chosen to be placed between the tissue paper or fine towels. It is important to unpack the suitcase immediately upon arrival and to hang delicate textiles on a stirrup.

Conclusion: With a little preparation and the right packing technology, everything arrives safely

So it is not that difficult to get everything you need in your suitcase and to bring it to the destination with care. If there are a few wrinkles, that’s no problem. Tip: A shower after the exhausting journey not only refreshes. It can also help to eliminate slight wrinkles in the jacket, blazer and the like when they are briefly suspended in the bathroom.

Selling self made products: How to start a new career

Selfmade products are in demand on the market like never before. Because fashion that is not mass produced gives its wearer a touch of uniqueness. A pinch of nostalgia at the time when everything was still handmade, also resonates. If you like to make your own clothes and accessories, the sale of your good pieces could give you an interesting future perspective. But how can homemade be sold?

+ AD + Do you know?

Get feedback for your handmade things

For a professional business, it is not enough, if you make the stylish tunic once. You must be able to produce the product in appropriate quantities – and also spend the necessary time. The materials cost money and need space. Therefore, not only should you have enough storage space, but also be able to shop for your required fabrics and other materials in such a way that you still have a profit margin at the end. Unfortunately, it is not enough if the best friend likes the homemade garment. Before you professionally raise your business, you need unbiased feedback. Praise can inspire, but does not help you if there are still things to improve. It’s best to make a selection of the clothes or accessories you plan to sell and give them to selected test subjects. Ask for honest feedback on the materials used, workmanship, design and overall look. Then you have a first impression of how your creations could arrive on the market.

Calculate the profit margin

Many have slipped into the sale of homemade things, step by step. Over the months and years, but sometimes over night, the hobby became a profession. However, if you do not want to bake small rolls right from the start, you can not get around a business plan. Not only do you need materials and tools, you also have to pay for packing material and shipping costs. Keep in mind that the production of your good pieces consumes electricity, water and heating in your workspace. Also remember that you need to invest in labels that comply with the EU Textile Labeling Regulation, homepage, logo, printed matter and advertising. All expenses on your list should be allocated to the single handmade piece. Calculate the sales prices so that you have something left after deduction of all costs. Now you can count how much self-made things you need to sell each month to earn a profit or even live off the sale of your products.

Use online portals for home-made

As good as your products may be, they do not sell themselves by themselves. Of course, you can go the classic way and offer your home-made things at city festivals. However, this only reaches a very small number of customers. On the Internet, on the other hand, there are customers worldwide for your products. There are now several national and international platforms that specialize in the sale of home-made things. DaWanda is the most popular marketplace in Germany for Do it yourself. You can quickly open your own shop and get started. DaWanda earns on the registration fee and sales commissions. Etsy works similarly. Other online marketplaces for handmade are muckout, vondir, palundu and ezebee. Under certain circumstances, there is a niche for home-made even on Ebay. Still relatively unknown is the option “Handmade by Amazon”. To be accepted, your products must comply with Amazon requirements and successfully complete the application process. Alternatively, you can open an online shop on your homepage.

It does not work without advertising

However, it is not enough to open a shop on a do it yourself portal and wait for the customers. Because to attract potential buyers, it now needs marketing and advertising. The social media help you reach as many people as possible. You can use Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, and Twitter to drum up your creations. When you advertise on Google, you reach your targeted audience. There will be no cost to you until your ad is clicked. Always make sure that you are legally on the safe side. For example, find out about copyright and get tax advice so there are no nasty surprises. Thanks to the Internet, it is now easier than ever to start a successful business with handmade products. However, if you do not want to stay on a sideline, you will need to spend a lot of time, energy, and financial resources to make a living selling your home-made creations.

Trend Piece – Baker Boy Hats

Hello my love!

After a long break, I’ll get back to you. Unfortunately, the University has taken the last weeks of my life, because exams are unfortunately not written by itself. In spite of all that, I am here for you again and report on the latest trends and fashion must-haves.

+ AD + Do you know?

Baker Boy Beanies – the new trend in spring

The Baker Boy caps can now be seen not only everywhere on Instagram and social networks, but also in the city and in everyday life. The caps were worn as early as the 19th and 20th centuries, but then exclusively by men, traditionally by workers and artisans in Paris. In the 1920s, this stylish accessory was discovered by golf and tennis and is now celebrating its revival.

Styling Tips & Insider Knowledge

You will not only find them classic in black with a band over the cap, but now in many colors, patterns and designs. The cool accessory directly enhances the outfit in its very own way. This is especially evident in bloggers and influencers at Fashion Weeks in Berlin, Paris, London etc.

The best thing about this trend? With a bad hair day we do not have to despair now. Cap on and style the hair undone look underneath. Your look is finished à la Parisienne. However, this trend is not entirely new either, because true style icons, such as Kate Moss or Christy Turlington, have long appreciated this stylish accessory.

In conclusion, I can only say that I simply love the trend. The beanies go with everything and just look perfect. I hope I could inspire you a little and encourage you to the new accessory. If you have any suggestions, questions, wishes or criticism, feel free to write me in the comments! Until then, I wish you a great week.

Your Iva ❤

Krystalclearmakeup: Mother, Wife and Instagram Star

Krystal is a 30 year old Canadian stay-at-home mum and a Instagram Star. Over 474K people are following her daily makeup post on Instagram and Youtube. We asked her how her career get started, all about her beauty secrets and how she is managing her social media career while being a full-time mum. Read the exclusive interview with the ‘Beauty Chameleon’ now.

Fiv: You are very popular under the name @krystalclearmakeup on Instagram. Before we start would you introduce yourself really quick.

Absolutely! My name is Krystal and I am a stay at home mom of two boys and have been married to my husband for 5 years. I’ve lived in the same area my whole life and was raised in the country. I’ve always had a passion for being creative and am one to push the boundaries and take risks. I love and welcome change!

+ AD + Do you know?

“push the boundaries and take risks”

Love and welcome change

Fiv: You as a ‘Beauty Chameleon’ would you tell us: what are your top 5 beauty essentials that you cannot travel without?

I can’t travel without my Dove Bar soap, it’s the only thing that doesn’t break me out. A good perfume, I’m currently loving the YSL Black Opium (it’s heaven in a bottle). A pair of black dress shoes, whether it’s plain black pumps or black strappy heels, they are a must! Long wearing Foundation, right now I’m completely hooked on the Urban Decay All Nighter Foundation. It’s long wearing and has beautiful coverage. And last but not least, nude lipstick. I always have a nude lipstick in my purse!

Fiv: For all the people who are not as experienced as you, what are your styling-tips?

Take a risk and try new things, You won’t know what works for you until you try it out. I have made plenty of makeup/style mistakes over the last 10 years, but it’s those mistakes that helped me discover the styles I love and the techniques that work.

the way music & makeup work together

Fiv: Where do you got all you Make-Up looks from, who inspires you in your look?

A lot of looks come to my mind when I’m listening to music, as weird as that sounds! I spent a lot of my childhood watching music videos with Jennifer Lopez wearing all sorts of different makeup looks and have always felt inspired by the way music & makeup work together.

Fiv: You show yourself with and without Makeup on Instagram. What would you say: when do you feel most beautiful?

Good question! It honestly depends on the day and my mood. I have to be in the mood to wear makeup and feel inspired to do it, it doesn’t turn out right if I’m not and in those cases I feel better without it. I haven’t always been confident without makeup and now that I am, I like to embrace it.

Fiv: Mother, Wife and Instagram Star! How does a normal day in your life look like?

CHAOS! Lol! It’s absolute insanity and it’s a constant struggle to find balance. My boys are at an age where they are constantly busy and our house requires a lot of upkeep to keep things clean. I have felt it was all too much to manage at times and questioned my ability to do it all. However, I’m extremely fortunate to have a husband that supports and helps me any way he can and that had made a world of difference!

Discover me again

Fiv: Do your children know that their mother is popular on instagram? discover me again

They know that I do makeup for a living and that it’s mommy’s job, but I don’t think they quite grasp the scope of what it is I do. Owen (my oldest) loves being on camera and asks all the time if he can help with my makeup.

Fiv: When and how did you start your career? What inspired you to choose your profession?

I had been waitressing for 5 years when I had my first son (Owen) and became a full time stay at home mom. I was so immersed in being a hands on mom that I didn’t take any time for myself and became really lost in who I was. My husband asked what I was passionate about and what made me feel like me and I said “makeup”. My husband enrolled me into an online makeup artistry course the next day. I graduated after 6 weeks and started freelancing that summer. I freelanced for 2 years when I realized it wasn’t fulfilling my need for creativity and I needed more. So I started my Instagram. I would create looks while my boys napped or in the middle of the night and although very challenging at times, it helped me discover me again and I found my passion.
The rest is history.

Fiv: What has been your biggest success so far?

Raising my children. There have been many times I didn’t think I was doing a very good job or that I was dropping the ball and failing them as a mother. But then I’d have these moments where I would have a stranger tell me “you have really kind and well mannered boys” or they would say something so profound and smart that I would sit back and think to myself “Wow, my children are wonderful little people.” Sure they are crazy people most days, but when it’s all said and done, they’re kind, thoughtful, loving and smart and I couldn’t be more proud of the people they are becoming.

+ AD + Do you know?

Everything can change in an instant

Fiv: What are your plans/goals for your professional future? Any upcoming events?

I don’t have any upcoming events to attend that I know of but that could change in a split second. I think that’s the fun of this business, everything can change in an instant & it keeps you on your toes. My future plans/goals are to have more opportunities to collaborate with companies and create amazing products that I can pour my heart & creativity into. I am just finalizing my first collaboration with a well known cosmetic company and am so excited to share it, It’s unlike anything I’ve seen on the cosmetic market!

Fiv: You as an ‘Influencer’ and ‘Make-Up Artist’ meet a lot of interesting people e.g Ruby Rose. Would you tell us who of all the stars and influencers you met on events impressed you the most and why?

Out of everyone I have met this far, I’d say Alex Faction and Samantha Ravndahl stand out in my mind. I have been a huge fan of their work for years and so the moment we were at the same events, I knew I had to walk up and say hello! I was crazy nervous because let’s be honest, you never know how you’ll be met with. But both Alex and Sam were AH-MAZING! Alex was beaming of positive energy and kindness and Sam was so chill and down to earth. Both left a lasting impression on me and inspire me even more now.

Personal growth

Fiv: Has fashion and beauty been present in your childhood?

Absolutely! I use to take my mom’s old sewing scraps and make outfits for my barbies and continued making my own fashion well into high school (not my proudest fashion moments I must admit). I received my first mini lipsticks from my cousin when I was 7 and was immediately obsessed! I use to be the “go to girl” for makeup before high school dances or any special events.

.

Fiv: If you had to choose between burger or pizza what would you take?

Pizza! I love me a good piece of pizza.

Fiv: My last question is : What makes you happy?

Personal growth. I think it’s important to focus on self improvement and always strive to be the best possible you. Where I am right now in my life is a place I could have never imagined being. I have two happy children, a strong marriage, a place to call home and a successful career doing what I love. I literally couldn’t ask for more! Some people think that it’s luck that others have the lives they have, But it’s all just hard work. I have struggled with depression and anxiety and use to be a very negative person to be around. So in turn my life and the people I attracted were negative. I have spent the last 16 years working on myself daily and it’s paid off in a huge way! I will forever be a work in progress, But it’s not if you fall that matters, it’s how you pick yourself up. Looking at all I have accomplished thus far makes me really happy.

Thank you Krystal for the nice Interview. If you want to know more about Krystal:

  • a bag – that can be a shoulder bag as well as a shopping bag or a shoulder bag
  • A silk handkerchief (if you do not own one, just ask the mother or grandma, formerly his belonged in any good wardrobe)
  • I tied the silk scarf to my shoulder bag’s chain, but you can also wrap it around a handle, for example, or attach it in the form of a bow. The silk scarf is such an effective but unfortunately forgotten accessory. It is also incredibly good as a hair band or as a scarf. If you do not have one in your closet, I recommend you buy one because they are all-rounder. You can usually find such cloths in vintage stores or in your grandma’s wardrobe.

Lookbook – Basic + Basic = It-Piece

After I spiced up my bag with my silk scarf, I wanted to keep the rest of the outfit simple. So of course I chose a gray oversize knit sweater matching the season, which in my opinion is the absolute basic of the fall season. Under my sweater I wear a leather-look leggings. I think leggings go only with a wide top or sweater over it but especially for cozy autumn days combined with a sweater they are particularly suitable. My sockboots are just incredibly comfortable and give the outfit a little more elegance. So simple Stylt her a basic outfit for the autumn days with a very special DIY It-Piece.

I hope you liked my column and my DIY and I was able to inspire you a bit. Of course you will learn more from me about fashion, style and outfits next week. Until then, I wish you a great week!

Fall Lookbook – The perfect fall outfit

Hello my love! It’s already November and this year is just too fast handled again! Autumn is slowly turning into winter and temperatures are falling and falling. But as long as leaves are still on the trees, I refuse to recognize that it is already winter. Therefore, today I show you my absolute favorite case look!

Autumn outfit – warm, practical and stylish

As soon as the temperatures drop we start to rummage the sweaters back out of the closet. This has, of course, something nice, because sweaters are just great, but on the other hand, it also means, of course, that it is cold and you want to crawl in the warmth of his beds. To make the cold seasons as stylish as possible, I’ve put together my favorite Fall Look! If you are looking for more fall outfit ideas, have a look!

Cuddly sweaters – the best for the fall!

Of course, my choice falls on a cuddly, warm sweater, this time in white with trumpet sleeves. These sweaters are just perfect for this season. It makes you feel a little bit like having your bed taken outside and are we honestly – is there anything nicer?

Culotte – also in the fall a good idea

For my sweater I wear a culotte. Actually, these pants are more intended for the summer or the spring, since they usually consist of a rather thin fabric. But I also think it’s a great idea for the fall, especially in darker colors, as I have chosen, it can be combined and styled great. Another plus? They are very comfortable, as they are cut so far. If the airy pants are still too cold, I recommend a pantyhose underneath. She hardly falls on and still keeps super warm!

Sockboots – the all-rounder in every season

Also in my last column I already mentioned the sockboots. I think you realize that I’ve become a real fan of these shoes! My pair has a golden heel that makes them special. They’re just so comfortable and that’s why I wear them almost every day. They pep up every outfit and are perfect for everyday wear.I hope I could inspire you with my Fall Lookbook and sweeten the cold days a little bit. If you have suggestions or tips, feel free to write me in the comments. Until the next column I wish you a nice week and enjoy the pre-Christmas mood!

Outfit Inspiration – Trueprodigy for the perfect summer look

The sun is shining again, the temperatures are high, the air is warm and once again the question of the perfect outfit arises. Especially if you want to go out in the evening. Is it too warm for a pair of pants? Do I take a jacket or not? Also, I ask myself these questions too often and to give some of you a little inspiration on what to combine perfectly and wear on warm days and nights, I’ve put together some outfits from the new Trueprodigy collection for you.

Outfit # 1 – fresh summer night

This outfit is perfect for a cozy evening on a fresh summer night. Whether sitting in the park, go for a walk or just end the evening on the balcony. The leggings are nice and comfortable and the leather jacket keeps you warm enough not to freeze. The perfect combination!

Outfit # 2 – work / school in summer

This outfit is a true classic and perfect for everyday wear. The leggings have great highlights on the knees, which does not make them look boring. Still she is still super comfortable and not too warm. The top is simply casual and perfect for warm temperatures thanks to the short arms. Together we create a great basic look for every occasion, which can be enhanced by great accessories.

Outfit # 3 – Elegant and versatile

This Outift is super versatile but still very simple. The pants are very simple and can therefore be perfectly combined with everything. She also has great details on the knee and a cozy waistband. The top is a basic with elegance. If it gets too cold, just put the coat over it and the look is perfect.

Outfit # 4 – Beachlook

The last outfit is perfect for a day at the beach. Under the casual and comfortable pants you can pull the bikini super and the top is by the print not only an eye-catcher, but by the short arms and the cozy fabric perfect for warm days.
