I finally jumped onto the Leo print bandwagon because animal prints are trendy right now. Maybe, you have seen insta girls and fashionistas wearing dresses, skirts (mini – maxi), blouses and swimwear in that particular print.
When I was younger, I think 13 or something like that. I really disliked the Leopard print because I found it tacky and ugly. Also, the print was associated with sex in the 90s – 00s. Even underwear in that print was considered indecent in that time. The bad thing was, that I was conditioned by society to think the same damn way. Which is very stupid, because at the end of a day it is a piece of clothing that has animal prints. Also, isn’t it crazy that people think they know about people’s sexual habits/sexuality due to a certain print?
Sure, some will say that you are what you wear. But I am convinced that people just enjoy the print and can wear whatever the fuck they want to wear. If you wear band tees, that doesn’t mean you are a rock chick. Maybe you enjoy the band or you simply like the style of the T-shirt. And, there is nothing bad about it. So, I hope that we stop judging people unconsciously for the choice of their clothing. Okay – enough with the rambling. 😉
How to style the Leo print trend
Since the Leo print is a statement piece, I would always go with colors like white, grey, black and beige. A Leo skirt can be paired with a white or a black T-shirt or top of any sleeve length. The tops can be plain or have minimalistic prints. A top or a blouse with prints looks good with a button down midi skirt in beige or in light brown. Furthermore, you can wear any shoe you love, I would opt for white sneakers like Allstars Converse chucks or black sandals.
Since summer is right at the corner. I wanted to share with you the look I had on a while ago. I thought, why not make an editorial style lookbook that features the love I currently have for yellow.
In a psychological way, it’s crazy how certain colors can lift or reduce your mood instantly. Like how the sun and its ‘yellow’ are known for lightening the mood.
Yellow comes in different undertones, that means everyone will find a yellow tone that fits any undertone and skin color. Due to my neutral, olive undertone, I can easily pull off yellows in a neutral and sometimes warmer tone. Therefore colder yellow doesn’t look good on my skin color. You can find your undertone if you look at your wrists vein. That means:
blue veins – cold undertone
blue/green or purple veins – neutral undertone
green – warm undertone
I paired my fav pants with a yellow polka dot blouse and comfortable bow tie sandals. By the way, I bought my sandals last year and the tone of the shoes are more on the golden site.
But If you are a person who doesn’t like to work with colors. And, you prefer to just grab neutral or monochromatic colors. Then opt for accessories like sandals or slippers in yellow or gold tones. If you like dainty pieces go with gold jewelry.
Let’s move on to the technical site. We used the good old Sony A6000 as always. We shot with the 50 mm lens which gives a beautiful blurry background and it’s the perfect lens for portraits/fashion shots. In addition, I used Lightroom to play with the color of the images.
I hope you enjoyed the different editing style of the pictures. Read my latest blog post here.
This is the floral green midi skirt you need in your wardrobe. Ever since I’ve discovered this green daisy skirt by Rouje, I immediately fell in love with it. But what held me back ordering it, was the price and the availability. After that, I started looking for alternatives and found this affordable skirt on the H&M page which looks even better in my opinion. The delivery of my skirt took a week to arrive. As soon as it came I wore it for the first time to the zoo.
What I like about the skirt are the prints, the lightweight fabric (crepe) and the 5 buttons on the side, that allow me to show a leg.
Unfortunately, the skirt is sold out but I linked you some similar ones.
Ths particular skirt can be easily dressed up or down.
As you can see in my pictures this is a very casual outfit. Because I wore the green skirt with a white basic T-shirt by COS followed by black Birkenstock sandals.
Furthermore, you can pair the midi skirt with simple t-shirts, tank tops in the color: white, beige and black. Opt for shoes like espadrilles, white sneakers, and sandals in white, black, beige. For a dressier look, I would wear nude or gold stilettos.
Finally, accessorize your outfit with a brown cross bag, a trendy Bali bag or a black bucket bag like me. Oh, don’t forget to put your favorite necklace(s) on.
Boyfriend shorts are the best piece of clothing if you want to show your legs and feel at the same time comfortable. Due to the length and shape, the shorts tend to look more masculine and therefore allow you a more casual look.
I ordered my Misguided shorts from the Asos website but it is no longer available that is why I linked you a similar one. Also, I choose the shorts in black because I don’t have any in my wardrobe in that color. The pants are versatile and I knew I could get good use out of them.Furthermore, I like how the shorts are cut at the end to provide a used look.
How to style boyfriend shorts
In addition, you can pair the shorts wonderfully with sneakers, flats and heeled sandals if you want to spice your outfit. Personally, I wouldn’t wear boots to the boyfriend shorts because it can give the appearance of ‘short’ legs.
For the top clothes, you can go with anything that your heart desires. You can wear a wrap top that is trendy right now. A plain T-shirt, ribbed top or even a cozy pullover for the colder days. I kept it basic with a white tee, shoes and a beige cardigan. They also have a good contrast to the black shorts.
I hope you like my outfit and see you in the next post!
We’ve taken so many pictures on our trip to Vienna. And we shot a few fashion pictures which I wanted to share with you. Oh and, if you haven’t read my little Vienna Guide already – you should do it now!
Luckily, most of the time the weather allowed me to wear airy and cute spring clothes.
On Look no. 1 I was posing in front of the Donner Brunnen that is in the heart of Vienna. I wore my H&M wrap top and paired it with my beige pants which you have seen many times. The wrap top can be paired with blue ankle jeans or with a jeans skirt. I then threw on white Converse All-Star shoes. In addition, these are the best shoes for long city walks and they give the outfit an effortless touch.
Moving on to spring outfit no. 2: I was relaxing on the wall wearing a green-stripped blouse that was tucked in my blue jeans skirt. Also, I paired this outfit with my beloved cognac-colored bag and the Reebok Classics. By the way, this is the perfect attire to put on when it is 20 degrees outside.
Which one is your favorite look?
See you in the next post! <3
