Mirror Mirror

Mirror mirror on the wall, who's the prettiest of them all? Thanks to Balenciaga, high shine shoe are huge at the moment. Ever since they introduced their thigh high liquid metallic silver boots, I've been desperately looking for a pair of silver boots.Nothing makes a statement quite like a splash of reflective gold or silver on your tootsies.

Looking at them you might think: How or where would I wear these?

As scary as they look, these badass beauties are actually not so difficult to style. Incorporating liquid shine metallic booties to street style outfits kind of tones down their high impact and makes them slightly more subtle. Balance the look with another neutral such as black, gray or denim. (yes, denim is a neutral!). These boots are a fun addition to any wardrobe. Don't save these boots for the evening! Rock them during the day as well! Just go for a more subtle look and definitely don't overload on silver accessories.

Grey Checked Blazers | A Major Trend For Fall

As temperatures take a downturn this fall, a new fashion trend has emerged. The grey checkered blazer is taking the fashion world by storm; on runways, on the streets and even at work. Instagram has also seen a buzz with fashion influencers posing in this classic attire matched with different styles. From what I've have seen so far, I can safely conclude that the grey checkered blazer will be the biggest fashion highlight long even after Fall has passed.

Runways

At the Tibi runway, the checkered blazer brought the 80s back when models matched it with a mini skirt and black tights. The checkered blazer can also serve as an official wear. This was evident at Elle and Calvin Klein where models achieved the workwear look by pairing the blazer together with a similarly checkered mini skirt, white blouse, and heels.

The street

The street look with the grey checkered blazer is much funkier. People have been spotted in this classic wear with athletic bottoms or draping it over hoodies and black boots. The most appealing look is achieved when the checkered blazer is paired with skinny jeans of any shade and even with leather trousers.

Online

We have seen Instagram pictures of celebrities playing around with the grey checkered jacket to achieve different looks. The patterns and the material of the coat can help to transform a simple outfit into a sophisticated ensemble. If Instagram pictures are anything to go by, denim and leather jackets have been thrown out of the wardrobe this fall.

Be it the office, errands or street hang out, the grey checkered jacket is a comfortable and classy outfit to complement your look.

Here's how I styled mine.

Travel With Style And Comfort

Celebrities seem to make it so easy with everything, including travel. They always look so stylish so what are their secrets?

Here are some tips on how to dress for travel combining comfort and style:

Simplicity:

To ease the pain of traveling, keep your look simple and smart. Less is more in this case.

Comfortable footwear

This is a 'must' so do not decide on your travel footwear as you run out of the door, you may pick something that you'll regret choosing later. I would advise flats for travel ( ballet flats are the most ideal for this as they come in a range of styles, they do not leave toes exposed, are comfortable and look stylish). Pick a pair that works for you! Sneakers, flat booties, loafers are all excellent choices. Just say no to heels!

Comfortable clothing and layers

Opt for comfy clothing. Consider a pair of comfortable jeans or leggings. You can then layer your look with a cardi, cosy sweater or jacket should you need it and you will be ready for any weather condition without ending up with heavy and uncomfortable items.

Accessories

Keep your accessories at a minimum. A pair of sunglasses and maybe a watch are enough so don't be tempted to wear decorative belts or lots of jewelry, which will just be annoying and are unnecessary.

Makeup

Keep it simple and light. Tinted moisturizer, mascara, lipgloss, blush (and concealer if required) should keep you looking fresh and if you can get away with less do so - makeup doesn't feel good on your skin after hours of traveling. Include these items in your hand luggage, along with some breath mints for emergencies and a bottle of water to keep you hydrated.

When Technology Meets Style

I know, Iknow! I have been a terrible blogger lately. I haven't posted here in ages. I was more active on Instagram though ( @chic_glam_style ). Does that count? I do apologize however for disappearing on ya guys. I promise to try be more consistent ( pinky promise ).

Summer is officially over and fall has just begun. The numero uno problem here is : what the heck are you supposed to wear during this transitional period? Well basically this the timeto bring out your light jackets and cardis, sweatshirts and ankle booties. Mix n match them with summer staples such as tee's and shorts and skirts ( sans stockings if it isn't below 18-20 C yet ). Sneakers, mules, loafers, rain boots, oxfords are the type of shoes you should go for.

I opted for this cute vinyl mini skirt ( take note : vinyl and metallics will be everywhere this season. ), a simple logo tee and hightop sneakers. The outfit itself is simple yet effortless, but I would say the "centerpiece" of this look are my heaphones. Yeah, you heard right! My uber stylish headphones complete my city chic look and bring sweet music to my ears. Ever heard of Sudio Sweden?
