It is crazy how fashion and our lifestyles change. New trends are coming out and going away. Ten years ago we would consider sneakers as more sporty wear, only matching it with casual, ‘relaxed’ outfits. Today, a pair of trainers, combined with a floral, romantic dress is totally ok in our society. There are so many magazines and blogs, sharing some good tips on how to wear a classic pair of sneakers with unusual pieces. In fact, I believe that you will never fail by thinking outside the box in these days. Sneakers with most unmatchable outfit, can really make a statement and became the biggest trend. It is hard to say who brought these trends into the streets, but when Chanel put sneakers into haute couture collection, it became 100% acceptable to wear trainers with evening pieces.
If you want to mix and match your sneakers with any outfit, I would advice you to invest into basic sneakers, with very classic a neutral colours, like black or white. In that case you do not need to think about the colours, it will match perfectly with any of your outfits, like for example a classic red nail polish. With good basics you will have endless options for creating different looks for different occasions.

We are all different, with unique lifestyles and personalities. We grew up in different countries, cultures or religions… However, we all know what is behind that logo of a little guy Mickey Mouse. More or less, this iconic figure influenced our childhood, leaving us with warm and nostalgic feelings. Maybe that is one of the reasons why this character continuously staying on the adult fashion pieces for years. Perhaps it indicates our obsession with Mickey. Well, I am a little bit in love too, with this trend. However, I would not go for brand new pieces available at Disney store, since Mickey Mouse is a retro character. I want to keep it vintage in order to create the cool old-school style. I found my pants in the local vintage store, reminding me of 90’s, childhood, and neighbourhood kids.. If you are a bit childish like me, try to search for vintage items on Etsy.com, where you can find a lot of options and styles with Disney motives.
Everybody noticed that gingham trend has been on top this spring and summer, and it seems like it is not ready to leave us yet. I love this kind of print because it is super easy to style. However, there are many women out there who would not dare to mix this pattern into their wardrobe. And I know why, because for many it associates with classic picnic blanket. Well, that is why I love it so much, cause it brings good emotions, and can make you look refreshingly chic. Go for black and white gingham instead of traditional red, blue or green. It will give a more neutral but still playful look. You can find so many different styles in the fashion stores, from classy masculine, to very feminine pieces at the moment. Gingham items don’t have to feel rustic and old fashion, since it got some trendy touches of ruffles or appliqués. For a feminine and modern look, team your gingham look with white sneakers.
The summer is still here and the whole August is ahead. However going back into office mood might be hard for most of us, while beach, sand and summer sunsets are still dancing in our heads. Yes, post vacation situation can be hard sometimes. So, how to jump into work outfit, after few weeks in relaxed atmosphere, where the only things you needed was a bikini and a small evening dress? You might want to wear something relaxed and sporty but without overdoing it. We all know that high heels is a way to express our feminine spirit and at the same time a statement piece for an elegant and sophisticated look. If you are afraid of wearing too sporty clothes, neutralise it with your elegant pair of high heels. It is all about balance, and what I mean is that you simply mix elegant with sporty, feminine with masculine or classy with extravagant. Office wear should not be put into frames (well it used to be), and we should still be able express ourselves in a way of who we are..
