white shoes change everything.
If your total wardrobe is made up of black, white and grey ( hint: it should be) then you need white shoes. They could be sandals, white converse or heels. They might be ballet flats. They could be pointy. There is not a quicker zap for instant groove to update your wardrobe. Not one. Whatever your age. If you can’t do white shoes then go for blush, nude or caramel. No more black shoes if you can help it ( except pointy heels).
Layer a sweater over shirt.
Let it all hang out man! You want to toss a sweater over your shirt. Let the tails hang out . Pull out the collar. Make sure your pants are not baggy but your sweater is. You can see here it’s not about going crazy with colours it’s HOW you wear it and the different, new shapes that count. Note short pants to show off heels.
It’s a half tuck.
Please explain. Well, who knows why this is cool?. Just is. But mark my words these girls did not just accidently style their tops half tucked in that way. Oh no! This is a deliberate styling trick. I think it’s saying I am very laid back , I work for French Vogue and just because my tee is getting bigger and sloppy does not mean I can’t show off a little bit of my waist. That’s what it is saying.
Oversized is the new silhouette.
Just look at the new Celine, Balenciaga or Givenchy shows. The biggest trend in fashion quietly taking over before your very eyes? Baggy and loose clothes. Sorry. Get used to it. It’s very 80’s. ( FYI: Models born in 1996 have never worn it before: it looks new to them) . Let me explain: Every 6 or so years the whole silhouette changes. This season it’s starting. Loose tops, loose jeans, big oversized coats for winter. Baggy pants and sloppy tops. Show some skin and it works really well for summer. So does all white, head to toe. Somehow tight tees are now sooo wrong. Wrong! If you buy anything invest in a baggy stripe tee. Then half tuck it in under your sweater and toss on some white shoes! Voila ..You are da bomb. Welcome to the new look.
