Standout With Zebra Stripes / The One Print That Makes Any Look Eye-Catching

WILD ABOUT ANIMAL PRINTS.

The graphic zebra print is the fashion statement of the moment

Did you know that animal prints are forever in style? They’re always on point, and they’ve never gone out of style. A classic leopard print is already considered as “neutral”. But there’s more to be experienced in the fashion jungle – if you already feel comfortable wearing leopard print, I guess you would love zebra print too.

My favorite print for fall has surprisingly become a zebra print. After wearing almost only floral dresses all summer, as the new season arrived, I have found myself gravitating towards wild animal prints, and especially graphic zebra prints. In particular, I have been wearing this statement jumper over and over again. The silhouette is fun, featuring sleeves with a unique, boxy cut, and I love how it can be dressed up and down. I have paired it  already with classic trousers, high waisted denim and knitted skirts and I’m already dreaming of 100 different ways to style it.

While zebra print is one of the most fashionable prints at the moment, it can be considered as a timeless print that you can wear season after season. If you’re looking for something that can be easily styled with multiple looks, I suggest you to choose a monochromatic black and white zebra pattern, as it can be paired with any color. For a classic look, pair it with black or white, for more casual look, add denim to create a relaxed finish. And if you’re ready to make a real statement look, pair your zebra printed piece with a pop of some bold color, pink, green, yellow, blue… any color will go, just be sure to pick a color that makes you feel beautiful and empowered.

Are you already happily wearing animal prints?

5 Fresh Styling Tricks to Help You Style Your Chunky Sweater

THE SWEATER WEATHER IS HERE.
In collaboration with Chicwish.

Stay warm while remaining stylish with a chunky sweater

One of the first things I always look for in autumn is knitwear. They pair perfectly with chilly autumn days and crisp leaves, and obviously, they’re meant to keep us warm and cozy during the colder months.

I love oversized, chunky sweaters for a few reasons:

  1. They have enough room for layering when you need some extra warmth.
  2. They’re easy to style in multiple ways, and can be worn with jeans for casual look, skirts for a statement look or if the sweater is long enough, with nothing underneath styled with knee-high boots.
  3. A chunky sweater is very photogenic, the heavier material and the texture just looks good when being photographed.
  4. They’re timeless, a chunky sweater trend is here to stay, so you can surely make the most of your sweater season after season.

If you have a chunky sweater somewhere in your wardrobe or consider investing in one, but are not used to wearing oversized styles, styling a chunky sweater can feel a little challenging. Let’s be honest, there’s a lot of extra material in this knitted number. To avoid finding yourself looking shapeless, and instead, looking fabulous and polished, there are a few tricks to help you:

5 Styling tricks to help you style your chunky sweater

1. Tuck it in

Try a half-tuck, that means slightly tuck your chunky knit halfway into your bottom of choice (see my pictures). This works specially if the sweater features a long and wide fit.

2. Look for balance

Pair your chunky knit with sleek pieces, like slim skirt or trousers for balanced and figure-flattering finish. Pair with heels or sleek boots for extra stylish and polished look.

3. Go all-oversized

If oversized looks are your thing, you can just forget all the rules, and make it a statement look! Go all-oversized, add wide-legged pants or loose maxi skirt, and finish the look with chunky boots or sneakers.

4. Glam it up

For a more glamorous finish, pair your chunky sweater with something shiny, a satin slip dress would go perfectly with it or maybe even a sequin trousers… Metallic accessories work well too!

5. Be confident

Wear your chunky sweater with confidence and smile (that works for your all looks). When you feel happy inside your happiness will shine on everyone you meet.

I hope these styling tricks will help you to feel confident and happy in all your chunky sweater looks.
