WEDDING GUEST STYLE GUIDE ♡

Hello my loves! How is your summer going so far? Mine has been crazy. Extremely busy, full of unexpected events and some amazing experiences that I can't wait to share with you. If you care for a glimpse, you can go check out my Instagram account (@helena_tsk). I really do hope that August will be good to us all. ♥

Anyway, as you may know, wedding season is still very much on. I mean, what better time to celebrate your love for your s.o. than now that the sun is shinning so bright? Being only 20 years old, wedding isn't currently in my short term bucket list. Nonetheless, I can still offer you my style advice.

In my previous post, we discussed the do's and don'ts of wedding gift giving and today we're going to talk about your clothes. Aka I'm trying to make you the best and most stylish wedding guest ever 😂 First, let me give you some tips that will help you survive a summer wedding. 

Choose lightweight fabrics

In my book, being Greek and all, summer equals some serious amounts of heat. Hence, you need to be dressed accordingly. Pick something airy and flowy and, preferably, stay away from anything too tight. The last thing you need is everyone staring at your sweat stains. You want to breathe properly and be comfortable for the long evening that awaits you. 

Be careful with the patterns

It is well known that summer wakes our inner flower child. Yes, bohemian vibes may be your ish, but for a wedding, you may want to consider toning it down a little bit. You don't want to look like a hippie or overdo it with crazy patterns. If you want your outfit to be more summer appropriate, you could opt for a monochromatic look with a nice color (not too bright).
If you are into color-blocking, stick with the pastels. Baby blue and rose quartz look a lot classier than hot pink and vivid turquoise.



Consider your poor feet

Some women can walk on stilettos with swag all day and others can't make a single step without tripping. Maybe you can practice or maybe that's just how things are. But, when it comes to a wedding, you need to be very thoughtful about the shoes that you pick. 
First of all, keep in mind that many summer weddings take place outdoors. While I want to think of myself as very skilled when it comes to walking (and dancing) on heels, I can't even stand the thought of doing that on grass, sand or anything other than solid ground. So you may want to keep that in mind before choosing sky high heels.
Luckily, fashion has evolved enough for us not to be required to wear heels to look formal or stylish and you can find amazing flats for any occasion.

Other than my tips, I highly suggest you take the following style guide into consideration:


And if you don't own a suit appropriate for the occasion? Worry not. You can always check out the tuxedo & suit rentals that The Black Tux has to offer! (hint: Christian Grey would approve)

Anyway, these are just some guest style suggestions. At the end of the day, keep in mind that you need to stay true to your personal style an aesthetic and simply adjust it to fit each event. Just be you boo ;)

DIAMOND CHOKER & BRA ♡

Hello my loves! Are you feeling excited for New Year's Eve? I know I am! I can't believe 2016 has finally come to an end. On the one hand, I had tons of fun and I achieved some amazing things. On the other hand, I went through some really bad things and I am so down to leave them behind tonight. 
I wish that the new year will bring health, happiness, love and success. I wish all the best to you and your families. May our future be as bright as our highlighter ♥ Happy NYE!
I don't know about you, but I have been planning my outfit for NYE for a while now. It's just the perfect opportunity to dress up and get all fancy with a full face of makeup. I'm really excited to be as extra as I can :P And I obviously encourage all of you to do the same. Glow baby glow, and blind the haters ;)
Anyway, today I wanted to tell about an accessory that I've been seeing literally everywhere-especially on Instagram. I'm talking about those gorgeous diamond chokers and bras. 2016 was the year when chokers really made a comeback. I mean, everyone and their mom had at least two.
 Diamond chokers though, are not for everyone. You have to be pretty brave to wear them since, it's guaranteed that they will make everyone's head turn. Especially if you pair them with a diamond bra. I feel that those two together make a very bold pair. I am absolutely in love and I think that they are perfect for NYE.
I am actually going to wear a diamond choker tonight, but I had to refrain from the bra cause I'm not quite sure how my D-cups would fit in a bra like that. And, since I'm gonna be dancing, I don't want to risk flashing everyone :P
Nonetheless, I am obsessed with this trend and I think it totally matches my personality. It's easy to pull it off, especially if you are comfortable with showing cleavage. It's the perfect touch to glam up any look and, if you wear those, you don't even have to try for the rest of your outfit. 
To me, it looks so effortlessly glam and I think that you could even pair it with casual clothes and makeup for a more everyday look. That, of course, depends on your personal style and preferences. I would wear it without a doubt!
What about you guys? What do you think of those lovely diamond pieces? Let me know in the comments below♥

STYLE FILE: HOODIES & FUR ♡

hoodie and fur
Hello my loves? How is life treating you? I'm a bit terrible, since I got sick again, but imma fight it ;) I'm definitely not ready for the holidays, that's for sure!
Thus, I decided to skip the xmas posts and talk about real street style. It's been my favorite lately and I've been really loving all the trends. Basically, think cool girl meets lazy girl. Like Kendall and Gigi. 
The new hot trend, that I'm really digging is wearing a fur (faux obvi) over your hoodie. All the icons (and Kanye XD) are pairing them with skinny pants and they're mixing and matching different colors and patterns.
Why I think this is awesome? First of all, it's so incredibly comfortable. If you sleep in hoodies, like I do, then you basically go out in your pj's. Hoodie plus fur equals warm and cozy. I also wear skinny jeans on the daily and then the sneaks or boots that go with my look. Lastly, this look combines casual badass girl with glam and sophisticated lady. Think of it as the adult way to wear a hoodie. 
Extra points if the hoodie is long and you wear it like a dress with otk boots! Simply cool and amazing.

SYLE FILE: FISHNET STOCKINGS♡

Hello my loves! How are you all this cold cloudy day? Or is it just here in Athens? Who knows... As for me, it's that time of the month (TMI I know) and we all know how that goes. I've been in bed all day working and dying :P
On the bright side, I'm finally posting on my blog♥ Today, we're talking about a mojor trend, fishnet stockings! 
Do you remember the days when those were so trendy and then they so weren't? And now, much like the other 90's trends, they're back. But, they got a makeover and I am totally obsessed with them. We used to refer to them as tacky and provocative but this is another example of how the person's style can affect the way an item looks. I mean...those trashy girls were wearing them in red and hot pink with belt-like-skirts and stripper heels...can you blame me?
Anyways, atm the icons like Kylie and Kendall and some of my favorite style youtubers like Maddi Bragg are giving this grungy trend a new twist. The street-style cool-girl ways to wear them are endless!
You can wear them with oversized hoodies/t-shirts and boots (thigh-high too), with party dresses, with shorts, skirts, sneakers and (probably my favorite way) jeans. Imagine seeing black fishnets inside the rips of denim pants, over the jeans if you're wearing a croptop and under them if you roll them and pair them with ankle booties or sneaks. 
Also, I adore the version with the tiny pearls and gems on the fishnet. It's so edgy and glam! As you probably guessed, I've already purchased a pair and I can't wait to  wear them *_*

STYLE FILE: STATEMENT JACKET♡

Hello my loves! How are you all? Personally, I am beyond exhausted. I've been so busy with work and college that I barely have enough time to breath. But, I always have a little time for you ;) Today, I wanted to talk about one of my favorite trends of the season. Statement jackets!
You all know that I am an avid jacket lover and I just can't stop wearing my black biker one. It was love at first sight♥ It's so versatile and easy to style but, let's face it, also a little basic. If you are ready to stop wearing just black overcoats and experiment a little with your style, this is the time to do so.
Statement jackets are a must and, honestly, so easy to to wear. If you are a style mogul and you like to mix prints, by all means, go ahead! But, if you are an ordinary girl, who wants to get just a little bit crazy with her style, a statement coat is your new best friend.
You can keep everything else simple so it won't get too loud. Think monochromes and dark colors. What I love about these, is that you can totally experiment and add your own personal touch to the look. Plus, you can think of it as a reverse statement outfit. Normally, you would wear ex. a bold dress and style it with a minimal black coat. But, why hide your creative side? 
I am totally obsessed with this trend and I think that so many different types of girls can pull it off. It's so hot and very 2k16. As for my personal favorite...I simply must say the Gucci leather jacket. It's divine♥
What about you guys? How do you feel about this trend? Let me know in the comments below
