The beanie is still one of the coolest thing you can wear this winter; it combines great with everything from casual outfits to more formal looks. Another major advantage is that you don't have to worry that much about your hair.
This season I found myself a really nice black mohair rib beanie from Filippa K to keep me warm!
If there's one piece of clothing worth investing in it's definitely the sweater. The humble sweatshirt has become a high fashion hero and it all began Fall 2011 when Givenchy set the trend with their Rottweiler print sweater. Not to mention the Kenzo Tiger sweater in Fall 2012 and this fall the sweater is still popping up in several collections. The best thing about wearing a sweater is that they're chic as they are comfortable. It's not just a trend, it's actually now a wardrobe staple.
Black is black and nothing can compare to it. Black is always on trend, classy and timeless. Black is sophisticated without trying too hard. And another great thing about black is that it doesn't matter what your personal style is. It's perfect in its simplicity. I love wearing all-black outfits and I practically live in my black jeans. And as long as the French Voguettes are still wearing their all black casual chic look I'm safe.
If there's one Fall trend worth trying it's a cosy turtleneck sweater. A trend that is both practical and adorable and you can skip the scarf as your neck will be already warm enough. Make sure you chose a chunky version though.
A classic blouse is always a relevant basic for your wardrobe (and an item you can probably recycle from your own closet..). Although I spotted a different way to wear this ultimate classic, being combined with a white or vintage Tee. Innovative? Not really. Cool? Yes!

Still more than six weeks to go, but a part of the Isabel Marant for H&M lookbook leaked yesterday already. As was to be expected. The collection is undeniably Marant, with oversized outerwear, skinny pants, ankle boots with fringes, fishermans sweaters and (my favorite) thin tees. In selected H&M stores November 14. We have to be patient. Have a look at the rest of the looks here.
London Fashion Week is in full swing and the London streetstyle seems to be less about showing off designer labels and more about an individual style. And...jeans is still the fashion pack's favourite. That's reassuring.
Have you been waiting for the Garance Doré X Marc O'Polo items to come in? Great news...the collection of Tees and sweatshirts with Garance's lovely drawings is online available as we speak. You can buy them here.
Pietrasanta is known as the 'little Athens' of the Versilia region because of its high concentration of artists. Walking through town you find marble workshops, art galleries, fashionable boutiques and jewelry shops. It's absolutely one of my favorite Italian holiday destinations. Of course (as you can see on the second photo) I brought a visit (again) to the store and workshop of Marco Balderi, a local artist who designs and crafts exclusive hand-made jewelry. Love his work.
Apparently we can thank Katie Holmes for first championing the boyfriend jeans trend back in 2008 and yes, there's something elegant about looser jeans. This lady knows all about it...what a great way to wear a boyfriend jeans! Seems she's wearing the perfect blouse as well. Sigh.
This is what happened today...my youngest son needed a pair of new sneakers, we went shopping and quite surprising I came back home with a pair as well. Naturally I'm aware that this Nike Air Max 1 with leopard print is not their latest design but somehow this version was still inside my head. As I regretted not buying them when first spotted in NY last February, I just could not resist them in Utrecht today.
Just when you thought your dungarees days where over, this 90's trend makes its reappearance. They can be difficult to wear and in terms of styling it's important to make them look as modern as possible. To sport this trend as a grown-up opt for chic blouses, striped tees and crisp white shirts. Don't forget your heels!
Shop your gently priced denim dungaree at Zara or get a more posh one from J Brand.
The worlds fashion community have come together in Milan for the spring/summer 2014 menswear shows and Tommy Ton is back in action on the Italian streets again. Most striking? Ladies wearing men's shirts. Certainly my cup of tea as well...
