Scarves & foulards

Accessories are another major favorite in fashion.
Whether is jewelry, bags, belts etc, accessories can be fun and practical as well!
This winter however, will be the ideal season to play with scarves and foulards.
Many ideas and ways of how to wear them in order to give another vibe to our outfits but most importantly to boost our creativity and have fun!

On wrist like bracelet 

On waist like belt

Around neck for a classic or modern vibe

 On top of clothes and belted

Wrap around even on top of coats, or hooded and turbans to add warmth and style

Top on Top: master the layers

One thing i enjoy a lot in style is layering. 
Combining many pieces together, one top of the other makes me feel comfortable, creative and me!
The "art" of layering i feel that it reveals a person's aesthetics and cannot be so easily "coppied". It can either flatter or unflatter a silhouette if not combined appropriately as the proportions must be in such a way and according to a person's natural physics in order to seem effortless and chic. 
Perfect examples: Christine Centenera and Maja Wyh!
Admire and get inspired by their unique sense of style.

The winter's must haves!

My theory of the winter’s must haves!
The theory is based on the practicality of the everyday style with pieces that are easily combined, comfortable while at the same time cool and fashionable, giving various style effects.

#1        Shoes: the sneakers
Adidas Stan Smith! Definitely the best choice I believe. After their great comeback the past spring season I remembered why I liked those shoes so much many years back when I was in school (!) Either in their characteristic green classic back color or customized, I think it’s worthwhile to like them once again this much and maybe even more. 

#2        Trousers: the leather pants
Preferable in black color another passé partout, all day / night long item. Casual in the day and chic rock whatever in the night! Goes perfectly with sneakers, boots, high heels, oversized sweaters, t-shirts and cardigans, white shirts and black sequined tops.
Either in the skinny version or in the edgier wide version.

#3        Bag: the back pack
After a loooong time I will go back to school voluntarily with the back pack bag choice. Apart from being the lately fashion-statement-it bag, this bag is surely a refreshing design, after the too large bags, which is also very chic and convenient at the same time. From the legendary Chanel to Zara, several designers have created their own back pack! 

Fringed or not from Topshop

Quilted or printed from Zara

#4        Coat: the faux fur coat
The favorite choice for winter! Rock-chic, as seen on favorite fashion icon Kate Moss, or messy, grunge, chic as seen on Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, but strictly faux for me. Day to night, casual, sport, evening etc, gives different effects and it completes an outfit by giving it this extra something.
