9 Summer Wardrobe tips.

Posted by Petra Orrenius on

Get Ready for Summer.

Some great pieces to have this summer. Mix and Match them all. 

The deconstructed shirt

The deconstructed shirt isn’t going anywhere soon. It is getting trendier and even more interesting. Great to pair with your old denim jeans or shorts.

Graphic stripes

There is no summer without stripes. This year combine stripes in all different shapes. And with the right combination it’s a winner for any summer party.

Flared denims/denim shorts

When fashion icons and artists starting to wear something, its soon to become a fashion trend. Honestly, flared denims are fun, comfy and a good staple items for colder summer nights.

and of course a pair of denim shorts (ripped or plain) 

Bare shoulder

Show some skin in a fashionable way during summer. Off shoulder top or dress is still a winner this summer due to its feminine but still classic look. Not too much, not too little.

White Denim/Jeans

When you dont want to show your legs but dont feel for cover up in a kaftan or wear a summer skirt the white denim pants will save your summer nights. Dress them up with an off the shoulder top or a deconstructed shirt or why not a silk singlet 

Layering

Layering my favorite thing to do and recommend since it  easily changes any outfit, make you ready ifthe temperature changes during the day. For summer just keep your layering fabric lights, sheer and use cotton, silk and viscous.

Go oversized

Comfy and still looking great and being on trend- why not try oversized shirts, caps, and tees. And why not the old but still in fashion kaftan – it not only hides your extra party kilos it is  a great addition to any summer wardrobe since it def takes you from beach to bar in a second.

Kimono

A summer must have. Use it to dress anything up in your wardrobe: a plain slip dress, jeans, shorts, silk singlet. 

Slip in/Sandals

When you want something on your feet as comfy as a pair of Havaianas but a bit nicer looking this new trendy sandals is great for warm summer days.

Female Famous Fashion Designers - Who Are They What Do We Like About Them

When you think about fashion, you might not realize, but you will find out that the first famous fashion designer brand that comes to peoples mind is a brand which is started, created or having their main designer being a man. Crazy consider for most of this brands their main target and customer is female.   But does that mean there are no female fashion designers? In fact, there are plenty of very cool, talented and inspirational female designers that own their own brand or having top creative fashion jobs. From labels to new names, here are some top female famous fashion designers that have or still are making an impact on the fashion industry  

Stella McCartney- Always having an opinion and not afraid to let you know.

If you are a fashion enthusiast, you must have heard about Stella McCartney. Stella first entered the fashion world by becoming an intern for Christian Lacrox before becoming a fashion director for Chloe. She later debuted with her own brand which is revered for its colorful, boisterous designs. Her designs are something you can experiment with and truly express your own personality within. And Stella herself is not late to express her own opinion (using her fame from the catwalk to create a debate and make a difference…)  

Rachel Comey-Cult Coming.

Comey began her fashion career with menswear before turning to Womenswear, by 2004 Comey had built her following and expanded her library to include both footwear and Womenswear. Comey’s brand is defined by the cult's favorite: Legion jeans and mars Boot.

Ashley Olsen and Mary-Kate- Double the Fun.

The twin sisters began their fashion career in 2006. By 2012 they took home the coveted top prize at the CFDA Awards. Before the awards, the twins established the Elizabeth and James brands that are their version of  ready-to-wear clothing line with more affordable pricing. 

Diane von Furstenberg- Be the women you wanna be!

The fashion icon and the creator of the wrap dress that symbolize independence and power for an entire generation of women. DVF have had an extraordinary life raised by her mother a  concentration camp survivor in Brussel, married a prince became a jet-set princess, getting divorced, facing bankruptcy but came back by never ever giving up, overcoming cancer, bought a publishing house, building a global brand, and still going strong devoting herself to empowering other women: "I want every woman to know that she can be the woman she wants to be” and secure you get independent in her words, the kind of woman who is independent and who doesn't rely on a man to pay her bills."

 

Coco Chanel- Luxury but not over comfort!

Coco Chanel Is Fashion. She is THE women in fashion and was and still are very influential within the fashion industry. The house she founded is still the most coveted and respected label. Fighting stereotypes, borrowing elements of men’s wear and emphasizing comfort over the constraints of then-popular fashions. She helped women say goodbye to the days of corsets and other confining garments.

 

 

In honor of female famous fashion designer, there are lots of other established female designers like, Madeleine Cheruit, Jeanne Lanvin Miuccia Prada, Sonia Rykiel, Isabel Marant, Tory Burch, Donatella Versace, Anya Hindmarch, Alice Temperley, Vivienne  Westwood, Phoebe Philo, Amanda Wakeley and others that changed the fashion industry to what it is today.

They all deserve to be mentioned.

Tips Today for a Smoother Tomorrow

Posted by Petra Orrenius on

Weird things happens to your body when it’s cold outside and warm inside.

Some tips to stay smooth as silk when the weather turns from warm to cold. 

The combination of temperature drop, cold winds, central heating and low humidity makes your skin dry out and your former smoothness is long gone and exchanged to flaky, itchy skin, vulnerable to eczema and dermatitis. Ouchh. 
Make sure you’re well hydrated from the inside and outside with plenty of water to drink and eat essential fatty acids like omega-6 and omega-3 (nuts, whole seeds, avocado, oily fish like salmon).
Try to cut down on coffee (nightmare, we know..) and use nice skincare products without too highly active ingredients. Exfoliate every week to keep those dead cells away and try an overnight hydrating mask every night (Clinique got a lifesaver).
You can also try to avoid laundry products with perfume, stop overloading your washer to let the detergent dissolve correctly and use soft fabrics like silk and linen.
And remember: it’s only 7 weeks to springtime! ;)

Su·per·sti·tious SURE But only when Suits

Posted by Petra Orrenius on

Please tell us you’re wearing your clothes inside out.
Because you DO know that if you put on a piece of clothes inside out by accident, it might be your lucky day!
But whatever you do - ignore those who tells you to fix your” new look”. Your good look might be long gone if you do..
Confused?

Most people are superstitious in some way, and not only when it comes to Friday the 13th, walking under a ladder or breaking a mirror.
There are some funny clothing superstitions but unlike the ladder and the mirror, most of them will give you GOOD luck.
Thank god, since we love our clothes and don’t want it to make us unhappy in any way…

Did you know that having an odd number of buttons on your garments is believed to give you special luck?
If not - go ahead and sew an extra button on!
And always pick up a button if you find one!
To give and receive buttons also symbolizes a long and strong friendship.
Your friend might look surprised when she opens up the present, but remember - you do it because you love her.

Coins and clothes can also bring you good luck. Put a coin in the pocket of your new clothes before wearing them for the first time and don’t spend it - ever.

Polka dots on clothes is said to attract wealth, blue gives you huge success, a belt wrapped around your body will protect you from sorcery and if you wear a sock or stockings with a hole you can count yourself lucky!
Unless you wear it a second day. That will bring bad luck. And probably some bad smell as well.

Another thing that might be extra good to know on the Northern beaches is to pull your arms through the sleeves of the sweater before pulling it over your head. That way you’ll be protected from drowning... Not sure how though?

Last but not least never ever put your shoes on a table or on a bed or on a map unless you want to get involved in a bad quarrel, don't let your lover give you a pair of shoes unless you're tired of him and DON’T give your old clothes to old people. That will only bring you trouble.



Well. Maybe you shouldn’t be too superstitious.
