WHAT TO WEAR TO A WEDDING – CLEAN AND SOPHISTICATED

What to wear to a spring wedding is the theme of today’s post in which I share my point of view of how female guests should dress, starting with some of the best plain dresses I came across while web browsing.
Colors are crucial and picking out the right shade is trickier than you think. A dress can never be too pale for a wedding but it can definitely be too bold or flashy. The quality of the fabric plays the biggest role in making you look cheap or sophisticated, so the first thing to do is to pay attention that the fabric is pretty.
In addition, if you go for plain and simple dresses, you can allow yourself to go for unusual shapes and details that will attract attention but in the good way. Forget the mini tight dress that reveals everything and makes everybody stare at you, keep that for Ibiza this summer.

Wish you all a beautiful weekend folks,

Xo, G.

MINIMALIST FREAK

I know that many of you were impatient to welcome spring and its sunny, warm days to wear some of your favorite floral printed pieces (I know I was!), but there are still so many of you who won’t let go of their precious minimalist clothes, ignoring the whole flowery trend that is going on right now. So for all of you ‘minimalist freaks’ who want to keep their style plain and toned down no matter the season, here are five minimalist yet ultra stylish and trendy outfits to go for this spring.

Thanks for visiting guys,

THE SLEEVELESS VEST

I vaguely remember mentioning not so long ago, the importance of having a sleeveless vest in your wardrobe, and today I am repeating myself simply because YOU REALLY NEED TO HAVE ONE (or two, or three…). It can be short, long, tailored or loose, it really depends on how you are going to style it and wear it. I love wearing mine both with heels and sneakers, which in my case means dressing up or dressing down some of my favorite pieces, mixing different styles to keep it all cool and fashionable. If you are looking for some ideas on how to pull off this trend, here are five looks that might give you some inspiration.

Have a beautiful Tuesday folks,

Xo, G.

IT’S ALL ABOUT THE JACKET

There are many reasons why I love spring, but I will only mention one of them today to make it short = jackets. Yes, jackets. This is the best time of the year to play with patterns, different styles and fabrics, and simply let your imagination flow.
Over the years, my collection of jackets has grown considerably as I have understood very quickly how important their role is. However, mine are all plain, going from red to cobalt blue to black, nothing like the jackets I used below. But for my defense, I must specify that they all differentiate from which other in terms of shape, fabric and details. I admit that I am playing it safe when it comes to jackets, but it is simply because I need to tone down my very much colorful and patterned spring wardrobe.

Enjoy and thanks for visiting my blog,

Xo, G.
