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 – the designers

I’m definitely in love with Paris fashion week and everything related. The Balmain spring summer 2015 ready to wear collection. It has the perfect pallet, reminded me constantly of Piet Mondrian (one of my favorite inspirations) and the Yves Saint Laurent day dress, back in 1965′ fall.
Being a person who is crazy about every combination that evolves black, this collection was a delightful surprise. Once again, the A line skirts and dresses and the wide high waisted trousers are a constant.

Carven, another favorite. Once again, I find myself amazed with the colors! The snake padron is something that goes very well with sober colors and planarity gives the look the needed simplicity.

Lanvin never disappoints. Going through the collection reminded me of special creations, capable of making any woman feel powerful. Lanvin always shows us that kind of pieces. The baroque trend shows up here, once again – just never though it would appear with Lanvin.
