#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,

Get your Sexy on! Hunkemöller Glam Collection

December 28, 2015

Hello there Lovelies!

This week I was lucky enough to be invited by Hunkemöller to check out their newest Glam Collection, it’s so beautiful! To get started, they measured me and helped me to find the perfect fit for my bodytype, and then… the shopping started! The Glam Collection has lots of variations with mainly black & red colors, lace, diamonds and strappy details for the perfect sexy holidays. Curious about which two sets I selected? Keep reading and let me know what you think about them :)   Hunkemöller Glam 8 Hunkemöller Glam 9

For this look I’m going for sexy black lace with garters and hold-ups! The bra has a subtle Push-up for a better shape and I love the cute little rose as a detail on both the bra and the panty. Personally, I have to admit that I am not a huge fan of garters because I am too darn clumsy to get them on, but I have to be honest… once I got them on it felt pretty awesome! Lingerie really does make women feel beautiful! Hunkemöller Glam 8 Hunkemöller Glam 7 Hunkemöller Glam 6

For the second look I went for a romantic touch with a Kimono and lots of lace! I’m wearing a short top and matching panties with diamond details on the back. The reason I went for this lingerie set is because of the many ways I can wear it: cute and romantic with the kimono, sexy lady with the full transparant look, or adding an extra glam detail to your holiday outfits with an open back.

Hunkemöller Glam 5 Up here you see the cute look and in the pictures down below you see the ‘party in the back‘ sexy glam! Don’t you love the beautiful little detail on the panties with matching diamonds? I am going to wear this top during NYE because my dress has an open back and the diamond chains will be an awesome detail, I’m excited already! Hunkemöller Glam 1Hunkemöller Glam 2

Sooo… I am super curious about what you guys think about my choices of the Hunkemöller Glam Collection! Which one is  your favorite? Would you go for another set? Let me know!

PFW Streetstyle: Romantic in White

October 7, 2015

For the last day of Paris Fashion Week I am in a romantic mood with this beautiful white lace dress by Michelangelo Winklaar. I spotted this designer during Salonè della Moda and immediately fell in love with this designs: they arecompletely made by hand with oldskool craftsmanship and exquisite detailing… simply amazing!

IMG_2127_phixrTo complement the romantic look I braided my hair, added some small silver Swarovski jewelry and put on a pair of matching white lace heels. However, this dress is not all ‘angel innocence’ as you might have noticed… most part of the dress is transparent! Winklaar likes to turn heads with his outfits, just like me. A match made in heaven I would say! To don’t be too shocking I put on skin colored tights and nipple covers, but the great part about this dress is that it could actually still look classy without them: it’s simply too cute! The outfit reminds me of a quote I found on Instagram the other day: 

Always Classy

Never Trashy

And a little bit Sassy

I couldn’t agree more, thank you Instagram! I do have to say that I almost felt like a celebrity while wearing this dress since it definitely attracted some attention! Everyone wanted to take pictures, do interviews, make selfies and get my contact information, awesome and crazy at the same time! I even missed one show because I got slowed down by everyone I met, but it was a very interesting experience indeed!

Anyhow, I will have to be patient to wear more of these kind of amazing designs till the next fashion week, let the preperations begin and see you next season!

Lots of love,

Lynn

SS16 John Galliano – Back to British

October 5, 2015

After being out for a while, it is finally time for the return of John Galliano to the worlds fashion capital, Paris! The SS16 Collection is inspired by his roots in Great Britain, as we can see several references to British history, as well as to modern London. John Galliano portrays a unique mixture of statuesque uniforms with British rock and intimate lace work.

As the models walk down the runway we see lots of blazers and trousers with strong lines, creating a powerful and edgy feel. The cuts are perfectly tailored to the female body and the materials follow flawlessly. On the other hand, we also see a lot of delicate transparent lace with subtle embellishments. These inherently feminine designs are edged up with Brit-inspired caps, flat shoes and a badass attitude. Other notable designs are romantic cocktail dresses with a deep V-neck, several Brit-inspired checkered suits, and long organza dresses which flow beautifully over the catwalk. A returning motive is the use of polka dots, which can be found in most of the outfits.

The use of color is mainly black & white. However, there are several color accents such as beige, blue, army green and bright orange. John Galliano manages to create a coherent overall style by playing with these color accents throughout the presentation. The make-up and the hair are very neutral with an emphasizes on brushy brows, probably in order to don’t make the looks too feminine. After all: John Galliano is going for subtle Brit Rock.

While John Galliano is commonly known for his over-the-top carnavalesque flamboyantly eccentric style, this SS16 collection was more subtle and can immediately be taken to the streets. A piece of London was present in Paris today, and the lovers of British fashion will be standing in line for this unique collection. Welcome back John Galliano!
