WRAP SKIRTS

Last season was all about the skort. Basically a pair of shorts that looks like a skirt. Comfy and stylish. This fall, straight from the runway, has emerged a new trend. The wrap skirt. It looks very much like the skort, to be honest, but it is a skirt. But, this one you can also wear at work and choose from mini, to midi, to maxi. There are many textures and prints to choose from, so you can achieve a more edgy, sophisticated, boho or romantic look.
I would be terrible if I just showed you the Isabel Marant ones(header). But, since I'm always proposing alternative inexpensive options, I couldn't bail on you this time. Plus, did anyone else notice that the khaki skirt from Mango looks surprisingly like the leather Isabel?
There are really limitless options to style these. With or without tights, with heels, sneakers, ankle or biker boots. With cropped tops, button-downs, chunky sweaters, leather jackets, cocoon coats and so many more! It's a piece you can wear from day to night, in several occasions and styled in different ways. Definitely the multitasker of the season(woohoo!) ^*
If you can't afford Burberry, I'm here for you. We will always have H&M, Zara, Mango and Topshop with options just as cute.
I don't know about you guys, but I for sure am excited to try this new trend. What about you?

LIVE LIFE TO THE MAXI(MUM)

Without you I got nothing to lose♥
Who's excited for finally being able to wear maxis without being afraid of mud, rain or cold? I know I am! Usually people link maxi skirts and dresses with formal occasions, but they couldn't be more wrong. You can wear them from day to night and create casual or more polished looks, if you style them properly. They are great transitional pieces so, if your legs are snow white or you haven't been doing those squads or you're just still cold, then this is your solution. They may be a little more dramatic, compared to ex.a skater skirt, but I would prefer a hundred times to see someone wearing a maxi piece than someone with a mini and shiny nude tights. Honestly ladies, if you have a pair of nude tights, in the trash, now. I'll look away! And don't say stuff like "I'm cold" because I know they really don't make that big of a difference. Trash! Now!
Anyways, back to the maxis. I chose the three most recent sets I created on Polyvore with maxis and they are exactly what I needed to show you. The first one(top) is something you can totally wear this season. The color of the dress is to die for and you can take or toss the jacket and the hat depending on the weather, the time of day and the place. The straw hat is a do-do if you visit an island. I just love the sea salt spray btw and the sandals are a must-have staple.

The second look(above), resembles the first one in terms of when to wear it etc. but it's slightly more bohemian. Again, take or toss the sweater(love love love) and the sunnies. I love the ethnic vibe of the cropped top and the Marc Jacobs ring-oh so cute!
Make me your Aphrodite Make me your one and only But don't make me your enemy Your enemy Your enemy So you wanna play with magic Boy you should know what you're fallin' for Baby do you dare to do this 'Cause I'm comin' at you like a dark horse

The last one is obviously a night look. I was inspired by the song "Dark Horse" of Katy Perry, which I love♥. But I did it before the video clip came out, so you can see how off my idea was. All the pieces here are to-die-for, maybe apart from the necklace. I simply can't choose my favorite! This is for a night out and it's more polished and sexy. The side-cut is perfect to show the shoes!

Do you guys like my sets? Are you a fan of maxi skirts and dresses? Please leave a comment to let me know what you think!
