Belted Coats

When talking about pros and cons of wearing one of this seasons biggest trend – the oversized coat – there’s always one con in particular that crosses my mind: loss of shape.
So when I first saw not the typical matching belt on an oversized coat but, instead, an actual belt I knew I had to take a look and try this trend.
Why I love it? It creates the perfect feminine figure either you add a belt on an oversized coat or a normal A line coat.
So if you want to be a bit more audacious and try on a separate coat and belt combo (like I do!) you have plenty of options and a few tips to keep in mind: the size of your belt does matter (you surely don’t want to end up ruining the amazing shape this trend can give you by choosing the wrong belt for your coat); the color and the material is also important (you may want to choose a contrasting color – like a burgundy belt for a grey coat – or a fantastic printed belt with a white coat. You can even try the metallic trend I told you about on a previous post by wearing a silver or golden belt with a black or dark blue coat).
Another interesting thing about this belt trend is how you can wear it with a blanket scarf or a cape. Since I elected winter oversized scarves my favorite accessory last fall/winter, I’m definitely going to apply this trend to it!

Paris Fashion Week – Designers

Maxime Simoens – I dare to say it was the Modern Futuristic Manifesto. Made me feel caught on a colorful explosion, and I must admit – even though i´m more of a monocrhoatic person, I really loved it. My favorite pieces were, once again, the straight structured dresses (I think I just elected one of my Spring Summer Favorites).

About Céline… It usually never disappoints me! This year wasn’t an exception. I don’t really like floral padrons, specially when it comes to dresses. But somehow, Celine managed it very well. In other words, I’m considering SOME floral padrons thanks to this collection…

Acne Studios and their coats… If I had the money, I would definitely buy them all. Great for first days of Spring, to pair with light above the knee dresses and high waisted shorts.

Dior did something I’m always dying to see: how to wear a good crop top, and how to kill in it. And frankly, pairing a crop top with that kind of skirts made me fall in love all over again with that trend. The pastel colored suits with the buttons were another object of desire for next SS.

Isabel Marant. Between the short dresses with black and white padrons, the leather details, the leather pieces mixed with fur and the amazing pallet, I got lost. I’m always very careful when it comes to wear leather. Sometimes, even a bit afraid of the way I might look.
