#OOTD How to combine Spring Trends and look Flawless

March 13, 2016

Hi there!

I am especially excited about today’s #OOTD on Spring Trends because the pictures I made with Naelia Salas turned out so cool! What was supposed to be just a casual stroll around El Raval in Barcelona turned into Editorial-worthy photography, Go Team :) In case you are ever in Barcelona and you enjoy modern architecture, you should definitely check out the area around MACBA. It’s super central, right next to Las Ramblas!

So let’s get into my outfit! I challenged myself to combine two of the most popular upcoming Spring Trends : Romantic Lace and Sporty Deluxe. By layering two completely different styles and dresses you create an interesting contrast in your outfit: lenghts, materials, movements and ambients are clashing – but because of the neutral colors and minimalistic lines it works perfectly together.

Don’t you just love how the lace flows while walking?! It gives a sexy feminine touch to the ‘cool badass’ vibes from the sweaterdress and the booties.

Small tip: in case you want to try this look, you should definitely look for a sweaterdress which has an elastic in the bottom part of the dress… it just looks so much better! If you go for an A-line sweaterdress all the shapes become even more wide and it becomes unflattering. Oversized Comfy is cool, as long as the shapes are still structured. Lynn 5_phixr

Btw, did you notice that I am NOT wearing leggings and I actually felt the need to take my Sunglasses with me? There is actual SUNSHINE! As a Dutchie I am still trying to get used to the warmer climat advantages that Barcelona has to offer, and I am enjoying every minute of it! Every day when I wake up I look out of my window to find a bright blue sky wishing me a goodmorning… incredible! I am totally ready for this Spring/Summer Season :)

Also, let’s take a look at my accessories! They are a very important part of the look since they are giving the ‘final touch’ to my Spring Trends vibes. As you are already used from me by now, the Fedora Hat can’t be missed in this look, just as a minimalistic silver ring. I love how the Sunglasses give a touch of color with the blue/green reflections, and they are awesome because they are made from recycled wood! Other fun fact: the wide black chocker I am wearing is actually ‘handmade’! All I did was buying 30cm of wide black elastic ribbon and applying a little button on it in order to attach the ends to each other, which cost me like… 50 cents? Once again a proof that it’s not necessary to waste all of your money on the latest trends, all you need is some creativity :)

That was it! My Spring Trends Mix, I really enjoy this outfit and will be definitely wearing it a lot this Spring. I’m very curious what you guys think about the combination so leave a comment to let me know!

Lots of Love,

Lynn

#OOTD: The layered trend for those cold days

November 4, 2015

Brrrrr, it’s so cold outside! Thank god for this autumns layered trend which allows us to stay warm during the autumn & winter months. What is the layered trend you ask? It’s a mix of materials, it’s (often) oversized, it’s comfy, it’s warm, it’s creative! The cool part about this trend is the fact that even if you think that it might be too much, it could totally still work if you do it right. Here are a couple of examples from the previous fashion week streetstyles:

These ladies sure know how to look beautiful with all those layers! As you can see: any material, color, print, length, shape or accessory is possible! Popular for this look are tulle skirts, wide legged trousers or A-line dresses in combination with oversized sweaters. This trend is ideal for experimenting and finding out which materials or prints look good on you, and you will stay warm and comfy in the meanwhile!

The other day I went shopping in Mango and put together this simple yet stylish outfit, as you can see the wide legged trousers with the oversized sweater are an important part of my look! Under the sweater I am wearing a white blouse in order to create that layered effect which makes the look more interesting. To give the outfit a personal touch I am wearing my currently favorite black fedora hat with girly braids.

Regarding the print, I went for large chalkstripes in the trousers, something I had never tried before until now! I thought it was a cliché, but it looks so classy and it makes your legs look longer, definitely a print that’s going to stay in my closet! Furthermore I adore the cute laced detail on the back of my supersoft sweater! The heels give the outfit a more feminine feeling. Since you can see no shapes of the body at all, this is a great way to keep your look ladylike.

#OOTD Back to School! How to rock a Jumpsuit

October 29, 2015

Tomorrow it’s happening for me, I am going back to school! I will start my Master in Art Direction and Creative Advertising at the INSA Business School here in Barcelona, and I am looking forward to it like crazy! That is why I am dedicating today’s #OOTD to a school-proof outfit: simple but classy.

Earlier this week I was visiting the designer Loretta Piovano, who is known for her feminine designs and adding interesting details to the outfits in order to create unique pieces. One of the designs she gave me was this black jumpsuit, which has a gorgeous neckline and a perfect cut… I was immediately in love! The jumpsuit itself is a typical all-black-classic, which gives lots of space to varying styling options.

So for today guys… I NEED YOUR HELP! There are so many cool ways to wear this jumpsuit that I can’t decide which one to choose for my first day of school, let’s check them out:

The Classy Lady

For the first option I went for a feminine style with black heels, a turban and a draped scarf from S Oliver. As a color detail I am holding a bright blue clutch of Karl Lagerfeld, I got it in Paris last fashion week during the presentation of Karl’s new collection… I love it! While wearing this outfit I feel like a true lady who can go to class one moment (perhaps slightly overdressed, but definitely stylish!), and then go for a cocktail with a friend afterwards… who wouldn’t love this combination?!

Another idea is to just completely ditch the lady look and go for a streetstyle with my all-time favorite black Converse sneakers. With a comfy long navy-style cardigan I can comfortably walk around without getting cold and my big backpack can definitely hold any book I might need! Perhaps you might have noticed that the neckline of the jumpsuit changed… while being clumsy and putting it on wrong, I actually discovered that I like this straight neckline too, PLUS the back has a cool detail to it now! I’m not sure if Loretta Piovano had a reversible jumpsuit in mind when she designed this beauty, but it sure works! With the streetstyle look I feel confident and casual, which is also very important for a first day!

Girly Chic

Braids, black derby shoes and a fedora hat… how cute can it get?! To don’t look all too much like a naïve schoolgirl I edged up the look with a leather jacket and my little Moschino bag. I think it sends the message: I’m cute, but don’t mess with me! At least, that’s what I like to believe haha. Personally I love Fedora hats since they make an outfit instantly fashionable. The good ones are hard to find but once you got it… cherish it! In this girly chic outfit I feel stylish and ready to rock my day!
