Chic white

Schermata 2015-01-04 alle 23.26.22

The first week of the year has arrived, it’s time to get off those PJ’s, stop eating all the festive sweets, empty our baskets full of Christmas ribbons, papers, decorations and boxes and finally head back to work. I know it’s tough! But it’s also the moment of the year when we’re so thoughtful, motivated, relaxed and full of good purpose and hope.

The 2015 has started here with something warm, comfy, but chic.

I don’t know you, but I hate all those layers and layers of thick wintery clothes, under which I feel like a snowman. Yes, snowman. So, how to wear a white faux fur coat, without looking like a white-bear? First up, by adding a few touches of color here and there: such as a printed scarf, a hat, a colorful handbag.

And of course adding colors on both cheek and lips. Here I used a fucsia pink lipstick and my brand new Naked palette for a healthy flush on the cheekbones. I love this product! To complete the make up and frame the face a little better, I stressed the eye brows more than I usually do, with a dark brown pencil. My everyday color is a medium or soft brunette, but looking at the magazines covers, I’ve seen most of the models wear darker brows than their natural hair color, and you know the feeling…I started asking myself ‘how this could look like on me?’

The fashion experts recommendation (and it’s not rocket science, is very simple) is the more you add fluffy and thick outerwear, the more you should keep skinny or slim-fit your clothes underneath. Which means, for instance a black turtleneck and a pair of basic black leggings or jeans will be perfect. Or a little black dress, if you want to underline even more the ladylike effect. And don’t forget about the right attitude!
