No Rules Within Rules

No Rules Within Rules

A season that asks for creativity. As intriguing as it is, this is the season where we really need to work on not making it boring. We need to play with colors and textures that gives all the light our clothes need. 

In fashion, despite too many people thinking there are no rules, there are. Specially at the time to combine the clothes for seasons, type of skins and colors that works for you, etc. but we can try to "break" those rules and follow them in the path at the same time. 

One of too many ways to forget the rules, is having fun by giving colors and life to what is established as the colorless season. Winter can be a little dark at the time to choose garments, but we have to get out of the conventional and start building our own ways. 

Is a fact that we need to be very covered for the weather, but we cannot forget those pieces that along the year have been with us and can be adapted to the season. Of course you can't bring your beach items to winter, but you can get your skirt/shorts with a great pair of boots, cozy thigh high socks and you're set. Is all about creativity, turn your cold days into a warm summer on the inside. 

I created a warm, chic outfit for this week to welcome winter. 
A printed flower skirt which is in trend for this season, gives a complete turn to the outfit, very chic, colorful and full of life. The wool blend burgundy coat and boots are vital for winter. I think the Balmain blouse works perfect with the french beret and the scarf, same style, they defined the look. 

Hopefully this is going to be one of my biggest and best winters of my life, look forward to it! Don't forget white is a must and continue loving Style Accents! Any feedbacks below!;)

Strike a Pose

An old fashion way to give sparkle and life to the outfits is handmade jewerly. 

I found this Amsterdan's fashion glam brand of handmade jewerly that look exotic, unique and essential to what we are calling new era of fashion. MAUKE V , I could say is in my top jewel brands, a vintage inspirational pieces, with exclusive materials and rare gemstones from Africa that complete a total master piece. I chose pieces that anyone can wear to everything and give an edgy vibe to your style. 

Two kind of styles, two outfits, one set of accesories that pass from the ordinary to oustanding just by adding a special style on this jewel pieces. 

When you want to distinguish a garment on your outfit, either a bag, print or whatever, you need to look for pieces that made a contrast without being too striking. I'm not saying that you cannot highlight more than one piece, but it's very important that you can recognize which piece is the one. In fact, you can have a printed sweater and still get this particular jewerly to stand out both. 

The mix of silver and gold is a classic, more easy to combine it with; that's one of the reasons that I chose this choker.  Besides, found it impressive, elegant, a complement for any piece of garment that you choose for your style. It's very versatile. Small earrings that balance the size of the choker and the bracelet.

Winter is almost here, so give vibrant touches to sparkle up your wardrobe. Always pick unique pieces and materials that set your style. Treasure handmade items for life! 

'Till next time, have a blast!!

Dark Garden

Dark Garden

As I said before, this season haves it all. I guess this year, fashion has been giving a great hand on fall trends. 

Printed flower garments have been basically it the entire year. We saw a lot of it on spring and now they show us their darker side. Colorful flower printed with a strong color on the background are the most popular ones. 

I totally agree on combine it with plain colorful pieces, just to give leadership to the garment. Designers have shown us total floral outfits which in my personal style, don't agree too much; I think having a printed floral skirt and a jacket all in the same outfit can make you look overloaded. I am more of a classy person, I can be too edgy but never look like a trend victim. 

On this style guide, I chose one piece to be the center of the outfit, this piece will mark our theme. Floral can be very versatile in terms of color options, the printed piece is the base of hues and from these you can have a whole gamma of colors that will set your outfit. 

Bring your spring life to fun fall. Try to choose the color that fits you best. When matching, the color that you almost don't see on the print, is the color that you will choose for your other garments.

New Lady

New Lady

The lady look make its come back from the runways to the street style. A mix of 50's minimalism vibe with all the 80's waves on huge accessories and jewerly. 

This lady look is characterized by discrete volume touches for garments, wide skirts that maintain a girlie silohuette. On this new lady look, designers have include prints on their pieces and contrasts of colours to make it more creative and chic; we've seen airs of modern items.

I made a complete renovated and tough lady look on this week style guide. I add a feline printed sweater, as you all know are the trend this season, mixing it with the classic wide strong colour skirt. Make a balance with a pastel colour and subtle clutch. Keep the idea of the outfit with an ankle boot stilettos. Accessorize it with inspirational, bright colour jewerly. 

You can be a total lady without leaving strong trends behind. You can be both in just one outfit. Don't dismiss any trend of the season, in fact, take what you most like about each and create your own. 

I always try to combine different trends just to not be qualified as one style woman. I tend to be very versatile in terms of making my own personal style. It's very amusing to play with pieces and put it all together. Find your way to fashion games!
