trend alert: wide leg cropped jeans

de absolute trend voor deze lente en zomer zijn de ‘wide cropped jeans’. maar hoe draag je die het best? persoonlijk vind ik het altijd leuk als je contrasten combineert in je outfit: trashy jeans met een elegante pump of sandaal, stoer leder gecombineerd met een zachte stof zoals zijde of mohair, … draag bvb de cropped jeans die uitgerafeld is met een elegante witte (zijden) blouse en sneakers, of met een gekleed blazerjasje.

kijk trouwens eens in je kast of je nog een oude boyfriend jeans hebt. je kan de broekspijpen een paar keer omdraaien oftewel knip je ze gewoon af, zodat ze vanzelf beginnen te rafelen. moeilijk is dat niet!

hier vind je nog wat inspiratie.

trend alert: over the knee boots. 5 tips on how to wear them.

over the knee boots definitely are the new trend for this winter. but how do you wear them? here are 5 tips on wearing them:

  1. if you wear over them with tights in the same color of your boots, you will lengthen your legs.
  2. automatically this means that if you wear them with pants or tights in a different color or bare legs, you will shorten them and ultimately you’ll look smaller.
  3. make sure the boots don’t end at the thickest part of your leg. that way, you’ll look thicker and i’m not sure that is what you’ll want 🙂
  4. don’t limit your boots just to one kind of outfit. wear them in a casual way and in a more formal way as well.
  5. don’t blindly follow this trend just because it’s hot in fashion. if you’re not comfortable with them, just wear the boots YOU like. don’t forget what coco chanel used to say: ‘fashion changes, style endures’! and style is what makes you fashionable!

meet ‘simple comme bonjour’

a few years ago i discovered the delicate jewels of simple comme bonjour and ever since i have followed the facebook page. lately i was looking for someone who could make a unique and personal jewel for a very special person. and automatically i thought of simple comme bonjour to take care of it. as i have not had the chance yet to give the jewel to that person i cannot show you the photograph. believe me, it’s a magnificent one of a kind piece!

the other day i went to pick up the jewel and it was nice to meet with inneke goyvaerts, the designer behind simple comme bonjour in her studio/shop. november last year, she moved into a house in mechelen that was big enough to combine her studio with a shop where she meets her clients in person.
