Curvy is in – Fashion trends for women with curves

The times when curvy women hide in bulky garments are long gone. Rather, they can now play with their charms and skillfully put them in scene. You no longer have to bother with annoying diets or exhausting bodyshaping. Models like Angelina Kirsch make it happen – curves can be sexy. This trend is also followed by the clothing industry. It used to be difficult to get fashion in big sizes, which was hip at the same time, so today there are numerous suppliers such as MIAMODA , the trendy clothing for curvy ladies. However, it is important to emphasize his charms with the right garments and skillfully conceal problem areas. This succeeds with the latest fashion trends for 2018. Let yourself be inspired by our styling tips:

The trend color 2018: Ultra-Violet

Each year, the Pantone Institute selects a new trend color. This year the decision was made on Ultra-Violet. It is a dark, strong purple tone with a high blue content. This exudes expressiveness and inspiration and thus promotes creativity. Ultra-Violet is best combined with the following tones:

  • White
  • Gray
  • Black
  • Gold
  • Copper
  • Bronze
  • Yellow

However, it is important to choose the second color in a weaker shade. So the styling does not seem overloaded. If the purple tone is too strong for a complete outfit, you can slowly get used to this color. For example, a black trouser suit that flatters the silhouette can be combined with a white blouse and a handbag in ultra-violet. This accessory will be a nice eye-catcher. By contrast, the look is a little more daring when the white blouse is replaced by a purple model.

Skirts are a must have

Totally hip this season are skirts. These set the curves skilfully in scene. However, it is important for curvy ladies to grab a midi length model that ends at the narrowest point of the legs just below the knee. This hides a broad hip and strong thighs and covers the stomach. The slenderest part of the legs as well as the waist are emphasized. Recommended for curvy women are skirts with pleats. These additionally stretch the silhouette due to the vertical folds. The skirt can be combined with an airy falling T-shirt, which is knotted at the waist. This plays around the belly and makes it appear slimmer. If you want, you can grab a top with a deep v-neckline. This stretches the neck and shoulder area and emphasizes the chest. Ballerinas and a necklace complete the outfit.

Playful flower patterns are in

This trend is playful, girlish and romantic: Floral patterns are totally hip. Curvy ladies can show their feminine side with these floral prints. The combination of a Carmen blouse with a colorful floral pattern and a black skirt is particularly romantic. Ankle boots with heels and a color-matching handbag complete the look. A flowered dress also emphasizes femininity. No matter which garment with floral print a curvy lady decides – it is important that the pattern is not too small. Large patterns, however, flatter the figure. This creates a coherent outfit.

Stripes flatter the figure

Geometric shapes are very trendy this season. Here, chubby women can use strips to stretch their silhouette. If you want to look slimmer, you should choose garments with vertical stripes. These are perfect to hide legs, stomach, breasts and Co. A striped off-shoulder V-neck blouse sets the charms in place and also extends the shoulders and neck area. A model with trumpet sleeves makes the arms look slimmer. This blouse can be combined with a black high waist trouser, which conceals the thighs and the hips. Ankle Boots with heel lengthen visually and stretch the silhouette. A loud handbag gives the outfit the finishing touch.

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?

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

Handbags – These are the Trends 2018: Bucket Bag, Micro Bag & XXL Shoppers

A coherent and modern outfit needs the right handbag. Whether chic mini bags, practical XXL shoppers or casual fringed bags – the handbag trends in 2018 are very varied. In addition to some old acquaintances in a new design, there are also many stylish novelties.

Which handbags are trendy in 2018?

The current handbag trends are characterized by variations and variety. Small, tall, colorful, simple, chic or casual, this handbag guide lets you easily decide which model suits you best. You are definitely up-to-date with the following bags:

Bucket bag

Thanks to their round shape, bucket bags (or pouches) offer plenty of storage space and are therefore a very stylish everyday accessory. For example, fabric bag bags are great for casual casual outfits and city outings. Leather variants even fit into the office. You can even wear mini-size models – as an alternative to the classic clutch – to send events. Because they are an elegant it-piece, with which you are guaranteed to draw the attention to you.

XXL Shopper

These maxi bags are much more than just spacious shopping bags! They offer a lot of space: inside for important everyday objects, outside for patterns, colors and logos. Bags made of raffia or cotton are casual and suitable for leisure. With them you are perfectly equipped for the next shopping trip. But there are also very elegant variants made of high quality leather, with which you can complement a festive evening dress.

Micro-Bags

This year it’s going to be extreme: in addition to XXL bags, mini-models are also very popular. The small accessories with great effect only provide space for the most important utensils such as lipstick, credit card or smartphone. Practical: Often you can attach micro bags to other handbags or clip several models together. So the little bags become an eye-catcher and you can take them with you at every opportunity.

Fringe bags

Bags with fringes radiate happiness and pure zest for life. The difference to the previous year, in which these hippiesken models already conquered the catwalks: The fringes are no longer just at the hem, but cover the entire bag. These bags are a perfect match for retro looks, rock outfits and boho style.

Old familiar reinterpreted

For a long time, it is indispensable for chic events, parties and elegant evening events: the clutch. This also applies to the year 2018, but the trend bag is now bigger. The clutch is now just as elegant, but with much more storage space.

There is also a revival of the fifties bags known from the 90s. Since her appearance on the catwalks of many star designers this year, her bad name is gone. They are now mostly made of leather or imitation leather. These bags are extremely practical, because you have your hands free and at the same time everything at hand – perfect for dancing in the club or in the cold winter. Fanny packs are so popular among other things because they are very variable. You can wear them in different ways (you can find more ideas here):

  • At the hip or waist height
  • Under or over the jacket
  • Crossbody

These are the trend designs 2018

Red, red and red again

Small, big, round or square – handbags in red are definitely in fashion. This signal color dominates this year’s season. It peps up any of your outfits, expresses power and brings the vibrancy of the summer already in your wardrobe. They come into their own when you wear red handbags to dark outfits or looks in plain colors. Because then they immediately jump in the eye and act as a stylish eye-catcher.

Transparency is in

Whether clutch, shopper or bucket bag – transparency is announced! This has several advantages: The clear plastic that makes up most models is super easy to clean. Water rolls off and stains you can just wipe off. In addition, the translucent or translucent trendy bags have a lightness that fits perfectly with summery outfits. In 2018, the secret of the content of a women’s handbag will finally be revealed – of course only if you want! Because the stars are doing it and sometimes carry an opaque bag in the bag.

Large logo imprints

In 2018, there are large, present-day logos on the handbags. True to the motto: Show what you have. The brand names are usually strikingly placed on the front or on the shoulder straps – a trend with which you definitely make a fashion statement! In order to preserve the high-quality look of such models for a long time, you should maintain the bags regularly.

Varied wearing variants

By the way: in 2018, fashionistas will be wearing their handbags in very different ways

  • You can throw shoulder bags over your shoulders in a classic way. This season, the focus is more and more on the handles, which are often decorated very conspicuously.
  • Small bags are often provided with a short handle, for example with a metal-look ring. These you carry directly in the hand and thus have everything important at hand.
  • If you no longer just want to carry your handbag by the handle, just take it in your hand. This looks extremely cool and modern – no matter how big the bag is. Long straps are allowed to hang down. Many designers therefore provide the straps of shoulder bags with eye-catching patterns or bright colors. In addition to a practical, they also have a style function.

Bonjour Paris! Fashion Week Paris – the latest trends of the new season

The fashion month is almost over and finds its conclusion and climax in the capital of France. The cream of the fashion industry is gathering this week to see the trends of the new season A / W 2018/19. Of course FIV Magazine is right in the middle and reports on the trends for the coming season!

Fashion Week Paris – my personal experiences

My journey started early Wednesday morning when I boarded the train from Cologne to Paris. With full anticipation in the luggage, I arrived in Paris and checked in first in my hotel. At the reception the first invitation to the show on Friday awaited me, which was deposited there for me. After unpacking and sorting after a small suitcase, we went straight to the city of love.

For my short trip, I was allowed to make a little stopover on Reservations before the departure on Tuesday and equip myself with some parts for the Fashion Week, because especially at a fashion event, the matching outfit is of course crucial. The new collection from Reserved is very trendy and characterized by eye-catching color accents, elegant fabrics and modern influences. Which parts I have chosen and how I combined them for the special event you can see in the videos + photos in this article.

In the following days a wild mix of typical Touri sightseeing, Fashion Week feeling, and great insider spots awaited me – you’ll learn more about that at the end of the article. Of course it is very important to have the right footwear for such an eventful trip. Personally, I am a human being, I wear almost always high shoes in everyday life, but I can not recommend this even for high-heels lover in a city trip, because you are running but more than you think and of course thank the feet the flat shoes. My luck – at Reserved I found quite a few super comfortable sneakers that proved to be perfect travel companions. Because they are not only comfortable, but also visually a highlight and something very special.

Paris is so much variety and variety that you would probably need weeks to look at all the highlights there. But my absolute favorite spots in the city have a special wow factor. The small island in the Seine, on which Notre Dame and Sainte-Chapelle are located, because especially in summer this small patch of earth is surrounded by so much magic. Small markets with an incredible selection of flowers and food, stroll along the banks of the Seine and just let your mind wander. This peace in a city that is still so big radiates from the Eifel tower. Strolling through the park or sitting in a small café and enjoying the sun on your skin makes Paris something special.

Last but not least, I still have some restaurant recommendations, as they have me so excited, of course, it is not difficult to find great restaurants in Paris, because they are there like sand on the sea, but these three I can for personal tests only recommend. Very close to the hotel I found by chance the pizzeria Lucky Luciano. The pizzas are a dream come true. I tasted the pizza with buffalo mozzarella and rucula – just great (and not overcrowded).
In a completely different corner, it was me for lunch. Directly at the Sacre Coeur is a great and above all local restaurant with traditional French food. There you get a menu (3 courses) already for 16 euros – and that is really a bargain for Parisian prices. I tasted French onion soup, traditional potato casserole and – how could it be otherwise – Crepe.

Fashion Week Paris – shows & the trends of the new season

Of course, the shows were the highlight of the trip, because in Paris means Fashion Week again something different, as in Berlin. Fancy outfits, special celebrities everywhere cameras and everything according to the motto: ‘See and be seen’. Not only the so-called “Buyers” visited the special events, but also a lot of press, special personalities, like Blogger and of course the fashionistas and real Parisienne of the city. With lots of kisses, old well-known people were greeted before the show and then, of course, the main topic of conversation was first of all the designer and guesses about the new collection. The collections were especially staged and thus presented the trends of the new season.

Uma Wang Show A / W 2018/19 – Warm Colors, Oversized & Unisex

The Uma Wang Show took place on the 1st of March in an impressive presentation. An old library in a still active school. The parts of the Asian designer were very unusual. Particularly eye-catching, the warm colors stung. Many red, beige and brown tones. Many parts were oversized, such as giant bags, coats, blazers and dresses. The women’s fashion was characterized by many masculine influences. Jackets, trousers and thick wool coats. The designer interprets the trends of the new season in a very own and creative way, thus keeping to her style.

Andrew Gn Fashion Show AW 2018/19 – Velvet Boots, Ruffles & Timeless Elegance

The Andrew Gn Fashion Show took place on the 2nd of March in a beautiful ballroom of a classic Parisian hotel. The pink catwalk matched the elegant parts of the collection as well as the beatiful music. The designer’s collection was reflected in the versatility and influence of different cultures. Concise stitched out embroidery, which emphasized both garments tone on tone and in contrasting colors. From the special collection, the designer sets trends for the next season. Velvet Boots both over – and Underknee in colors such as dark green or magenta, but also ruffles, which the designer put oversized scene.

Travel Tips & Tricks in Paris – Restaurants, Attractions & The Best Photo Spots

A weekend in Paris can quickly get stressful. There is a lot to see in the city of love and of course you want to take as much as you can. But what are the Places To Be and which sights can one also save?

Restaurants Paris – something for every taste

Paris is teeming with cafés and restaurants. My personal recommendation (after careful consideration) is definitely the ‘Le Comptoir de Pantheon’, where you can enjoy not only delicious coffee and desserts, but also the traditional French Croque Madame – a crusty bread topped with ham, cheese and an egg French fries and salad – and of course Mamma Primi, an Italian restaurant that offers incredibly tasty buffalo mozzarella pizza and the ‘Gnocchi Gnocchi on Heaven’s Door’ (gnocchi with tomato sauce baked with cheese). Two real insider tips for the Schlemmer among us.

Sights & Photo Spots – the most beautiful places Paris

Nobody can deny that Paris is one of the most beautiful cities in the world, but as a tourist it is important to plan well and be prepared. To save you some work here are the tips for the best sights and photo spots:

Arc de Triumph – Champs Elysee – Pont Alexandre III – Grand Palais – Tour Eifel

You can plan these sights for a day, because once you have reached the rest on foot. Starting at the Grand Palais (where, among others, the Chanel + Louis Vuitton Show took place) a beautiful palace, which is also great for photos, you walk only about 100-200m until you are in the middle of the Pont Alexandre III. A stunning bridge with golden ornaments, from which you can also take a look at the Eifel tower – this is also a popular spot for beautiful photos. From there, it’s a 5-minute walk to Avenue Montaigne. Nothing for Shoppaholics, because there are the most luxurious fashion houses housed. From Chanel to Dior, Prada and Yves Saint Laurent you will find everything your luxury heart desires. If you run this to the end, you are already in the middle of the Champs Elysee with the Arc de Triumphe, which drifts at the end of the road. Also, this one is great for pictures but watch out – goes to the opposite side of the Arc de Triumph (not where he goes to the Champs Elysee) because there is much less bustle and your pictures are all the more beautiful! Not to forget, of course, the Eiffel tower, the spot of spots in Paris for great pictures!

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.

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.

Trend Guide – Red Bags and how to combine them

If you want to be trendy, wear red. The bright color you see this year everywhere, whether the celebrities, bloggers or on the street. The striking color has become suitable for everyday use and integrated in our wardrobes. But how do you style such a bright color and what really fits?

Red, red, red, – the trend color of the year

The color red has reached its peak this year and it is still very big at the end of the year. Whether bags, shoes, pullovers, coats or pants. The color is everywhere and everyone wears it. Such a bright color is daring and not everyone dares to wear them, because combining them is not always easy. I show you now 2 different styles with bags in trend color!

Look 1 – Elegant with eyecatcher

The design of the bag is rather elegant and simple (apart from the color). I think to a bright color you should combine rather subtle tones and not dress from head to toe as a colorful canary. My choice is therefore beige, white and black.

Due to the cold season, I style my first red bag with a warm sweater and a coat. Sweaters are basic in winter and can be worn to just about anything. The beige color and the turtleneck make it look elegant. For this I combine a white coat which complements perfectly with his sweater.

A simple black pants and boots complete the look. Despite the bright color, the outfit is suitable for everyday use even for the office or the university.

 

Look 2 – à la Parisienne

The black and white horizontal stripes are a classic trademark of Parisian women. I wear this as a sweater with trumpet sleeves. My red bag is more sporty, complements the otherwise elegant look but perfect as an it-piece.

Again, I have chosen only subtle colors to make the outfit does not seem too cluttered. In addition, I combine black trousers and elegant boots to round off the outfit.

This outfit is also perfect for everyday wear and can be supplemented with a coat in wind and weather.

 

I hope you liked my two looks and I was able to inspire you to own great looks with the trend color red. If you have questions or comments, feel free to write in the comments!

DIY tip! – Accessories are trumps

Hello my love! It’s that time again, a new week has started and it’s time for a little style update! Personally, I’m a huge fan of Basic parts, because you can easily combine them into anything and they just look elegant and extraordinary along with special it-pieces. I have put together a complete basic outfit for you, but the special thing is that I have created a very special statement accessory out of 2 Basics. To show you how quickly you can spice things up with little time, I have a little DIY for you!

DIY – Silk cloth binding

This little DIY you can do with 2 very simple utensils that most will probably find in their closet. You need:

  • 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!

Your Iva ❤

Winter Lookbook – Christmas Outfit 

Hello my love!

It’s time for a new column, and now that Christmas is barely a month away, I’ll show you what to wear for the holidays. Everyone celebrates different Christmas of course and in our family we have already tried everything, from comfortable in pajamas to festive in evening dress and high heels. In my opinion, everything has something for itself, but this year it will probably be something elegant again. I have put together a little casual but still chices and especially family-friendly outfit and hope that I can inspire you with it a little.

X-MAS feeling – the perfect Christmas outfit

It is not always easy what you should wear on the holidays. It should be appropriate but not too high closed and especially with the family you want to make a good impression of course. The outfit I’ve chosen is stylish but still appropriate.

Trend look – sweater over a dress

At the moment the trend is to wear a fluffy pullover over a dress. It not only keeps you warm, it also looks very elegant. I’m wearing a black knit sweater with ruching details on the sleeves. The dress has a floral print and looks just a piece under the sweater. It goes to the middle of the thigh and is thus long enough for an event, such as Christmas.

Overknee Boots – Trend Piece

Overknee Boots came back in trend last year. To date, they are very stylish and wonderfully combinable. I combined the overknees with my very conservative outfit, which spice things up a bit and make the outfit exciting. You do not see too much leg and yet it is still elegant. I chose black, tight overknees with a shiny heel.

That was my Christmas outfit for you. I hope I could inspire you and give you ideas for your Christmas look. I would be glad about your opinion in the comments and wish you a wonderful day!

Your Iva ❤

These 5 garments must be added to your shopping list next time

“Let’s go shopping!” – We can not say this sentence twice and we think about what we need this season necessarily in the wardrobe. There’s always a reason to go shopping, whether it’s for your next birthday, a Christmas party, or just because it makes you happy! Sometimes you surf haphazardly in the online shop world or you walk through the shopping streets without actually knowing what we want. That changes now! Keep your eyes open, because next time you know exactly what you should look for.

Your shopping list with the trends of the autumn / winter season: oversize, velvet and kitten heels!

We are happy, because with the fall comes the time of warm sweaters and cuddly scarves. But also the Christmas season is within reach and lets us ask what we should wear over the holidays so that it will not be the same dress from last year. What should be in your closet this season? Lots of oversized knitwear, lots of velvet clothes and the comeback shoes of the year for chic occasions: kitten heels. What else should be on your next shopping list, you will find out here.

1. The fabrics that can do anything: relax with velvet and silk during the holidays

Velvet is great! A fabric that is very comfortable to wear and shimmers beautifully depending on the light. What more suitable at Christmas time, there is probably not. You can see dresses, skirts, pants and tops, which are processed in this fabric. There is almost no garment that would not be conceivable in this fabric. Favorite example is the well-known Instagram blogger Marina the Moss from Berlin. In the picture she wears a two-piece suit, which consists of a suit suit and matching blazer. It not only looks incredibly comfortable, but also extremely chic. What a great combo, after Christmas dinner still literally “nice” to relax! Together with a silk coat like Ivana wears in a delicate rose, nothing really can go wrong during the holidays.

2. Convenient on any occasion: The Kitten Heels are the comeback of the year!

Instead of high, we stay down to earth this season. The kitten heels or mini heels do not let us down and our feet thank us for that! The eye-catching colors, wild prints and bows make the comeback shoes anything but stuffy. Magdalena, one of the most famous fashion bloggers from Belin, wears her kitten heels from luxury designer Valentino, as shown in the picture below. In burgundy, many straps and rivets, the allegedly small, delicate shoes look much more rocking! Also Marina the Moss shows together with a velvet blouse and clean white kitten heels equal to 2 trends of the season. Which variant do you put on your shopping list? We definitely want both.

3. Fall / Winter season means oversized season: oversized pullovers

What is not missing in the wardrobe is oversize! So keep your eyes open for oversized sweaters, and best with a turtleneck like Xenia Van Der Woodsen in a delicate blue. It shows, no matter how simple your look is, with an oversized sweater looks all the same cooler. Depending on your taste, you can decide on the next shopping trip either for coarse knit or fine knit. Also the color knows no bounds, because these sweaters fall on no matter in which color. If you still have a small bag to hang around, so much the better! The combination of a big sweater and small details is great. The two fashion bloggers at the bottom of the picture also show how great a simple pair of jeans can look in this combo. Well, are you also oversize fans now?

4. Striking through the autumn / winter: stripes and patterns where the eye reaches

María Valdés shows a combination of the trend oversize and pants in the trendy Stripes look. Many dare not at patterned pants, because they think it could be “too much” look. But as María Valdés shows, when everything is combined in tone, the pants seem to be in the focus. Together with a small bag and a chain the outfit is rounded and ready for a cozy autumn day. But not only stripes, check patterns are more and more visible on trousers! High time to say goodbye to the boring jeans out of the closet, to buy a new, cooler pants. Below are two examples of what your future trousers might look like.

Elegant and comfortable on the couch and also in the office

Small addendum to the last picture: The pants are reminiscent of an elegenate suit trousers and shows that we women can wear something in everyday life without acting stuffy. But they are also particularly suitable for the office, because they not only look chic, but are also incredibly comfortable. Incidentally, it pays to look at the fashion blogger Ruta from New York here in the picture, because it is known for chic but still comfortable fashion. Let yourself be inspired!

5. Vetements awakens the sock ankle boots and we want to have them right away!

Socks – what? At the latest when you see the shoe, you know why the shoe is so. The shape is reminiscent of a sock and is usually similar when worn. The upper part of the shoe is usually made of soft fabric, so they fit very pleasantly on the foot. Also, moving the foot is much more pleasant! The sock ankle boots are available in a wide variety of colors and heel shapes. For example, Burberry has provided his ankle boots with an artistic round heel. Fashion blogger Janina from Hamburg has chosen a simple model which looks much more exciting with a yellow heel. So there are a lot of variants and which ones do you choose?
