How to Style Metallic Shoe Trend in 2018

How-to-Nail-Metallic-Shoe-Trend-in-2018

Metallic shoes have started to gain massive attentions last year and I could say it has eventually become a fashion staple of the modern girl’s wardrobe. Today, you could easily spot them on the streets, red carpet such as Oscars 2018 and even runways of fall 2018! In short, metallic shoe trend is definitely in full swing!

However, if you are shiny-shoe beginners, a pair of silver knee-high boots or golden loafers might scare you away. No worries, you could easily add a pair of metallic flats to your daytime rotation. Not only they are comfy to live in, they also add a subtle glam to your look.

How to Style: 1 Floral Print Top 2 Ways

how-to-style-1-floral-print-top-2-ways

Floral print has become one of the timeless print that you could literally cruise from Spring to Winter! I love how floral print is so versatile and gives you plenty of opportunities to mix and match with other fashion pieces.

  1. For a more feminine aesthetic you could wear in Spring or Summer, team them with white pieces (such as a white skirt or any bright colours pieces). Or you may opt for bouquets in bold and bright colors, or in watercolor pastels.
  2. If you want something edgier you could cruise into Fall and Winter, tone it down. Even thought floral prints can be bright and bold, you can easily tone down your floral pattern by wearing them with black pieces. Or the easiest way is to throw them on with a classic denim jacket, a slick, leather jacket, and sporty footwear or your badass combat boots.

How I Style Black Statement Hoodie

black-statement-hoodie-outfit-girl

You probably already knew that I’m a girl who live in sweaters and sneakers. If you don’t, now you know (lol). Usually I tend to style hoodie with a pair of distressed skinnies, or a pair of shorts for that comfy and chic look. However, this is not the look I go for today.

How-I-Style-Black-Statement-Hoodie

The hoodie itself is pretty thin, tbh it is more like a sweatshirt, but I’m totally fine with it as Malaysia is hot and humid throughout the year. And I get to layer it with jackets or a shirt underneath when the temperature drops. Hence, if you’re looking for thick hoodie, you might just skip this.

I got drawn to this hoodie the moment I spot the full moon graphic on the center and the ribbon drawstring with letters on it. I absolutely love how they instantly spice up this black hoodie and add that edgy vibe. If you don’t favor black, this hoodie comes with several colours! P.S remember to size up as the hoodie runs in a smaller size. The one I’m wearing is in size XL.

For this look, I wanted something minimal, edgy and feminine at the same time. Hence, I teamed the hoodie with a black denim short skirt, and a pair of white adidas superstar sneakers.
