What To Wear With Black Jeans

By Ildi Pop | Fashion , How to...

Jeans are a must-have in any woman’s wardrobe. They come in every shape and colour,  from skinny to flare, boyfriend, bootcut, distressed, coated to washed-out, light, blue, grey, black – you name it, they have it.

I am a fan of denim, always looking for the latest trends and at the end of the day, I stick to the black ones.

The great thing about wearing black jeans, is that they go basically with everything. Black is a basic colour and it can be mixed in several ways and worn to many occasions, outings.

Here are a few ideas on how I wear my black jeans:

5 tips on how to wear black jeans for different occasions

Casual, laid-back Look

For a fun, relaxed day, wear the jeans with something basic, simple. This way you will be comfy and relaxed.

What is basic and simple? It can be either a plaid t-shirt ( white, grey, pastel, blue….) or shirt ( chambray, oversized, boyfriend, nothing formal ) paired with a pair of sneakers or ballet flats. Finish the look by wearing either a denim / biker or parka jacket.

Another great option is wearing it with a camel coat. I always loved the idea of wearing a wool coat with sneakers, and I’ve incorporated it in one of my looks. You can find this look here.

Chic Look with Black Jeans

Whenever I opt for a chicer look, I add a touch of femininity to it. This means mixing the black jeans with a white (silky ) blouse and a pair of either high heels or ballet flats. Even if they are flats that doesn’t mean it’s not feminine.

Accessorize it with a statement necklace or something sparkly ( bracelet, bangles, or even a sparkly blazer).

Finish your great look with either a leather biker jacket or tailored blazer!

Office Look

There are companies, where the dress code policy says you can wear your jeans only on Friday. The great thing about black jeans is that you can wear them not only on Fridays, but on other days as well. It’s only a matter of how you need to wear them, not to look just like a pair of jeans.

Tip: Mix the jeans with a tailored shirt, which is already official and choose a pair of heels.

Night Out In The Town

Try an all-black ensemble for a night out in the town. Wear the jeans with a silky tank-top and black heels or heeled sandals.

Add some edge by mixing it up with a black leather biker jacket.

Add Some Colour to your Black Jeans

Add a bright colour to an all black look. This means wear it with either a pair of bright coloured heels, a fuchsia blazer or a bright clutch.

5 Ways To Wear A White T-Shirt

By Ildi Pop | How to...

One of the most essential piece of clothing which can be found in a wardrobe is the white t-shirt. It’s not only a classic, extremely comfortable piece, but it is versatile and you can wear it every season. The white t-shirt can be implemented in every look from a day one to an evening one. Whenever I’m in doubt on what to wear, I always choose the good ‘old’ white t-shirt.

If  you are looking for a white t-shirt, look for a more relaxed, V-neck one, this way it will be easier to build cohesive looks.

So, here are 5 tips how to wear a white t-shirt.

Casual – perfect for weekdays & weekends while running errands or headed to the Saturday grocery / market shopping.

I love this look: it’s relaxed, comfy and with a nice accessory such as a necklace and/or a scarf, the look is effortless and chic.

casual

WorkWear – the white t-shirt can be worn to the office, and not only on casual Fridays.

Paired with a skirt, heels and blazer, the T is upgraded to a whole new level of elegance.

All White – mixing white, gold & brown always works: it gives you a clean, polished & stylish look.

This particular look works mostly on a hot summer day. Wear it to a date, going out or to a Sunday brunch.

Going Out – spice it up a little: add some leather, maybe a statement necklace and you’ll be the chicest girl at the party. The monochrome look works very good with bold colours, add a little bit of red and you’ll definitely turn some heads.

Layered – one of my favourite seasons is Fall because you can make great combinations effortlessly. Fall is just perfect for layering.

Wearing a t-shirt under your sweater, cardigan, blazer or biker jacket is ideal for Fall. This look can be worn for a casual outing, shopping, meeting for coffee with your friends or going to a movie.

How To Wear Sneakers

By Ildi Pop | How to...

Sneakers can be incorporated in your wardrobe for feminine looks as well and not only for sporty ones. Nowadays sneakers became a must have for Spring/Summer & Fall.

I think the sneakers ‘mania’ begun with the famous Isabel Marant wedge sneakers,  first seen on Beyoncé in ‘Love On Top’ music video. Starting from celebrities to fashionistas from all around the world, the wedge sneakers became very popular. With its hidden wedge it can be very feminine and chic, perfect for those days when you don’t wanna wear your normal heel.

But, let’s not forget the great Converse Chucks either, which are much more affordable and comfy in the same time, my favorite ones are the low top.

Wear the low tops with dresses, skirts, cropped trousers and  jeans, the high tops go perfectly with leather pants or skinny jeans.

Here are a few tips how to mix up the sneakers for your everyday look.

How To Wear – Tuxedo Jacket

By Ildi Pop | How to...

I love a great tuxedo jacket.

Influenced by menswear there is no doubt that it’s super feminine. If you wanna indulge in a tuxedo jacket, look for a fitted one only.

For a chicer look wear it with a basic tee accessorize it with a dangling necklace.

The satin trim is very sophisticated, polished – wear it with a silk blouse, crisp white classic shirt, skinny black jeans and heels.

For a more casual look, wear it with a printed dress and flats.

Chic Office Dress Code

By Ildi Pop | Fashion , How to...

4 + 1 important tip to look professional and be stylish!

IMPORTANT: Be sure to read and follow the DON’T DO Category at the end of the post!

Dress codes vary from office to office but they still have something in common. 

Here’s the truth: If you want to look professional, you have got to dress well. It’s just simple as that. People, both women and men, like to be surrounded by well dressed people. 

Most offices demand business casual, which means: dress professionally, in a neat, relaxed way. You don’t need to overcompensate, just make sure that every detail is in its place.

But let me start with something that bothers us all. If you are like me, and you love your body and your looks, you are prepared to do something about it too! I found my way, which is a combination of good nutrition and exercise. But mostly Exercise because, well, who can resist a good cupcake, right?

So I do A LOT of exercise, and I will talk about it more later. But recently I have tried out this system called The Venus Factor. And I really love it. If you want to check it out click on this link below (and no, I won’t be mad if you think you don’t need this 🙂 ).

>> Click to Check The Venus Factor <<<   

Now that we got that killer body, let’s go to the next step. Here you will find several cool tips on Chic Office Dress Code, i.e. how to “dress for success” and remain stylish:

Keep it Simple: Black and White

  • This is the classic combo: black pants-white shirt-black blazer; you can upgrade it a bit by replacing the black pants with a pencil skirt or a peplum one paired with feminine blouses. Check similar pencil skirt on Amazon.

  • Most offices have a day when you can relax a little bit more. Usually this day is “Casual Friday”. On such day wear something more comfy, but watch it: don’t be too casual (avoid flip-flops, crocs, short shorts). Going to deep into “beach style” never helped anyone! Wear a basic tee or a cute shirt paired with jeans.

These below are very important tips. If you don’t want to be sent away, keep this in mind for Office Dress Code:

  • Don’t wear flip-flops, crocs, sandals with socks – you will look sloppy and unprofessional.
  • Don’t wear cutoff shorts – swap them to skirts or jeans.
  • Don’t wear distressed, ripped jeans, leather pants – they are too edgy for an office look.
  • Don’t wear excessive make-up – it’s not a runway show.
  • Don’t show too much cleavage – it’s not appropriate, you can look stylish without showing it, first impression counts.

There you go. Simple, stylish and very practical both for Office and even an after-work casual event.

You really don’t need to dig deep into your pocket to have great outfit and fit in the Chic Office Dress CodeJust pay a little attention and grab that killer look!
