HOW TO WORK ATHLEISURE CLOTHING

HOW TO WORK ATHLEISURE CLOTHING

In collaboration with New Look / Anzeige –

If you haven’t heard of the term athleisure clothing let me quickly introduce you to probably the best clothing trend you will ever know of. Athleisure is a compound word formed of athletic and leisure. Which basically means that integrating your sportswear into your everyday wear is now considered to be highly fashionable. I always dreamed of the moment that staying in my joggers the whole day becomes accepted by the fashion industry. Luckily after the sneaker boom a couple of years ago and increasingly important fitness and healthy lifestyle trends – the day finally arrived. Big fashion houses jumped on that bandwagon and launched their own athleisure clothing lines such as IVY Park from Beyoncé – successfully.

Combining fashion and function can be a bit tricky. So in order to pull off that athleisure clothing trend properly there are some rules you can follow to look as chic and sporty as possible. Just always think about getting ready for the gym but also be prepared if the occurs a sudden coffee date prior to that ;)

  • Combine sneakers to suits or dresses.
  • Layer sports pieces under regular fashion items: Sports bra under a denim shirt or jacket,  leggings under a chic coat.
  • Combine joggers with some heels.
  • Make leggings more streetwear appropriate by pairing them with longer tops or tying a (checked) shirt around your waist.

PUT MONEY IN MY POCKET

PUT MONEY IN MY POCKET

Statement Shirts. We love them. We wear them. And as the name says, they transmit a massage. While everyone is wearing feminist shirts lately, I am just begging for some extra money. My ‚Put money in my Pocket Shirt‘ already got quite some attention on Instagram and people where asking where I got the shirt from. Funny thing: it was a total bargain. I grabbed it during SALE season at Zara for less than five euros!!! Yap – Gotta love SALE!

Like in my previous outfit posts Dr. Martens boots seem to be my only shoe choice at the moment. My white pair would also have been a good fit for this outfit, but we shot the look in Hamburg and I didn’t bring them with me. Luckily Melissa and I have the same taste in shoes. The camouflage jacket is also borrowed from her, but I am really tempted to buy one myself now. As I always try to pair edgy with classy/feminin pieces, I added a black skirt with some lace details to the look. Love the combo!

By the way what do you think of these nose accessories aka fake nose piercings? I had the feeling of going to sneeze all the time haha. Even though I think it looks really cool, I guess I couldn’t wear it for a long time.

I guess I have demonstrated my love for midi skirts a few times already. But I must admit that this length has become my favourite in terms of skirts as it always looks classic, regardless of how you style it. And it is proven that there are multiple ways to do so. As there a various forms of midi skirt, there are – of course – various ways to wear them. Like with high heels and a camisole, or with a band shirt, hat and boots or like in this outfit with a sweater, bomber jacket and Dr. Martens boots (which are currently attached to my feet!)

The latter version being my number one choice as I am obsessed with those edgy, rocker-chic looks. But by adding midi skirts to your outfit you set an extra highlight and who doesn’t love that?! This pleated silver skirt shines bright for sure, even during those dark winter days.

CASUAL WINTER ATTIRE

CASUAL WINTER ATTIRE

Let’s start by saying that this week was full of events. Most of which were pretty good ones – thanks for that! So here is what happened:

  • On Wednesday, 1st of February I started my new job as a booker. I am responsible for the dubbing process of various movies,tv series etc into German. Unfortunately I can’t tell you more because I signed a strict confidentiality clause in my contract as I am working with film/movie material which has not been released anywhere yet.
  • I had a commercial shooting for a big automobile brand on Saturday and it was sooo much fun. I always try to show you as much as possible on my IG stories so make sure to follow me there! Eventually I will show you the final clip as well.
  • My dad came by to visit after we haven’t seen each other in a pretty long time. So we spent a nice Sunday in Berlin talking, talking and talking :)

This outfit I am showing you here just represents my current casual winter attire! At this point I must admit that this is what I look like 80% of the time. I always tend to wear simple, casual and sporty clothes. Then I ’style‘ my hair into a messy bun and there you go. Okey, okey I did some highlighting with the obligatory fishnet tights that shine through my distressed jeans. And no winter passes without my most worn piece: the shearling jacket.

BERLIN FASHION WEEK AND THREE MAJOR TRENDS

BERLIN FASHION WEEK AND THREE MAJOR TRENDS

Berlin Fashion Week 2017 is over and I was recovering from all the trouble in Hamburg. On my Instagram stories I have already shown you some impressions of last weeks fashion circus. In this post I like to introduce you to the three major trends, which you could observe on all shows and street styles: fishnet tights, ruffles and checked patterns.

FISHNET TIGHTS

Lately, they have become omnipresent and there are multiple ways to show them off. They have become a great statement accessory. I decided to go for the ‚plain version‘ – if you can say so. Even though there is a slightly wicked image about it and I for sure caught some views I think they are simply great. I loved this look way more with these fishnet tights than without and since fashion is always some kind of statement I went for this ‚provocative look‘.

RUFFLES

Well, ruffles can be found everywhere. On the arm like in my outfit, on the shoulders, on the front of a shirt oder skirt – even on shoes. You see. I think this detail is really cute and a bit girly and makes and even boring jumper unique.

CHECKED PATTERNS

They are back! Once again, you’ll see checked patterns not , but skirts, dresses, coats – and so on. I love the 90’s vibe that comes with it and if you use them dezent, than it is for sure a great.
