I admit that Zara is one of my favorite places to buy blazers. I love the fit, it's the perfect length. I love how it's structured and feminine, but still a little boxy and oversized. They make it so perfect. I have this blazer in beige, black and khaki too, so this one has nice padded shoulders, is double-breasted and has the little black button details. It's lightweight, so good for summer but not too light that you can wear it in the colder months until fall winter. If you just layer it it's really versatile which is what I always look for in pieces that I can wear not just in the summer but all year round, ideally you really get the most out of your clothes and the cost per wear ends up being super low also what I often do in the summer with blazers is I roll them up here and obviously when you do that they will come down so I have a little trick for you so I don't know if you can see here but I have a little elastic band for the hair and what I do is I put it on my sleeve and then I pull the sleeve up and then it stays like that, it doesn't cut off circulation because it's a pretty stretchy band. and then you end up having this look down here, we have this t-shirt, this one is nude and there are two t-shirts that I would really recommend for everyday basics, these are nude, they are a little bit thicker material, these nude i 'I really highly recommend it.
I also love Arquette's sturdy oversized t-shirts. I think they're called um. I'll link them below, but they're another good one that washes well, looks expensive, and isn't visible. -through or something I also love the dropped shoulders on these nude tops. I always say this. I think there's something about off-the-shoulder t-shirts that look a little more elevated and expensive compared to everyday tea and where I dress very basic and simple. Little things like the cut of the t-shirts or the construction of the garments seem very important to me because it makes the difference between wearing a very basic outfit to something a little more elevated and moving on to shorts.
These shorts are also from Naked. I really love its color. They are dark blue wash, which I think looks a little more mature. Sometimes denim shorts can look a little younger while for some reason in this wash I feel like I really work again, I love the cut of these, they are long but not too long and also have a frayed edge and always I love a little texture in an outfit, especially one that's pretty simple like this one, and then tying the look together. Together I paired this with my YSL sneakers. I think I've done about three or four capsule wardrobe videos and these have definitely been in all of them, but I love them because they're so
easyto clean, you won't clean them.
I feel comfortable saying that you have to put them to bed after you put them to bed. They are very comfortable. If you've been watching me for a while, you'll know that I really like to balance my outfits with little details like the black button here and then. The black on the YSL sneaker really brings the whole thing together and accentuates it and says little details for me that I love. I think in this outfit, I would probably re-match a black bag to tie these little black details and something like that. turn it down a little bit because it's pretty light on the top half.
Okay, now we have this little monochrome number. If you like Zara pants, the ones I always talk about Zara high waisted pants, that's what they call me on the website, you'll love them, so they're a new look and I prefer them to the pants from Zara because they have belt loops and the only thing that really bothers me about Zara pants is that they don't have them and I just love wearing a belt with an outfit sometimes or at least I like having the option to because sometimes Sometimes it really brings the outfit together, it brings you closer to the waist and yes, for example this outfit without the belt would be very simple, they fit the same as the Zara pants and they also have that nice seam that goes down the front, which really It gives it that slightly more elegant look and then I just combined them with this top from Zara, it's like a very nice thin fabric and it's also short.
So you have a little bit of room here, but if you're not comfortable with that, you can always pair it with a bodysuit or something. This is a very simple set. This is something I would wear in and around. going to lunch in London, yes, very everyday things. I pair it with a black bag for sure and some of them definitely have gold details to tie with the belt and then for shoes you can even pair them with some nice chunky white sneakers. balance the top or if you go for something much smarter like just throwing them on the floor Kate don't worry yes you can also style something much smarter like these these are Monona Blanique and I love them they are gorgeous.
A pair of shoes and this style of shoe enhances the outfit, makes it look so elegant, so expensive and a little more mature looking. It's actually a big dupe for these so I've linked them below, but they are incredibly comfortable. wear them all day, it doesn't feel like you're wearing heels, obviously it's a very small heel, but still, today I paired this outfit with these slides, these are from Amazon Fashion, I really like the way they are black and brown I feel like the brown softens the outfit a little makes it feel a little more casual and these sandals really remind me of the ones from ysl so they are a fantastic little tube fresh off Amazon.
Here's another outfit you can wear with this little one. knitted vest I paired it with the high waisted pants from Zara that I have talked about millions of times, they need no introduction and then for the shoes I chose my umez so it's very light and
easylike a new outfit too and then As for a bag or one of my Lady Dior TVs, everything is very neutral. Another way to style these pants is with an oversized black t-shirt. This is again from Naked. In fact, I just realized, I think the white one I showed you.
At first it shrank in the wash because this one is the same size and feels much bigger, but you can really see the dropped shoulder on this top like I love it, I love how it goes to the elbow. outfit which you may have seen me in in many different color combinations, in fact I put them all on the screen so I have maybe three or four different colors in the pants and then black and white t-shirts and I just mix and match them all. It's one of my favorite looks because it's something I feel very comfortable in, but I also feel very good in it, so yes, this is definitely one of my favorite looks.
The other day a girl sent me a message on Instagram saying how are you messing around. on all the excess fabric on these tops and the easiest way I can describe it is that I lay it flat under the pants to make it as fluffy as possible and then I lift it up and over the top and really flatten it out and straighten it out everything and that It really works and again I have paired this outfit with my flip flops from Amazon but this would also look great with manolos again or with some sneakers or you can even wear it as a casual converse or something yeah , it just depends on where. you want to wear this too, I guess I think what I'm wearing now is perfect as everyday clothes, a little smarter, so maybe I would wear this to meetings and stuff.
In fact, I think it's a great option. small office number too, I have already shown this next set several times on my Instagram and tick tock, but it is one that I have really loved and I have put a little white lace bralette underneath, I always say that, I think adding The little lace bra that peeks out slightly from under clothing can sometimes be a nice little detail and I love the boxy, slightly stiff look it has. The fabric is quite stiff, which is really nice. These jeans have a new look. These are the conservative jeans.
I've had these for a few years and really love one for the shape and fit and two for the wash. I think it's a really nice neutral looking wash and then to balance everything out I've paired it with my white email sliders. I also wear this with some white sneakers or I've also styled it before with these shoes, these Zara ones here, I think they're so beautiful, they're slightly different whites, but I don't really think that matters too much. I don't mind, but yeah, if you want to wear this, maybe to dinner or something a little dressier, just add a pair of heels and I think it looks great most of the time when I'm out to dinner or maybe going out at night or I have more occasions to go to and I haven't chosen a new dress or a new outfit.
One of my favorite things to do is just wear a very casual outfit, but completely elevated with some high heels, that's just a little trick I like to do to maximize my wardrobe. The next outfit we have the same new jeans and then this black top from Zara, this is the same as the white one I showed you before, I love it. These basic little vests like razor back vests, I think my favorite is actually one from Amazon Fashion, but I wear it so much that it's in the wash right now, but this one is very similar, it gives you a similar look.
What I really like about these. They're like, um, almost sculpting because they're pretty tight, they really like to draw you in and I never feel the need to wear bras with these because they give you so much support, this outfit is definitely a lot more casual. I would probably use this to run errands if I had a picnic in the park for friends. Yeah, it's definitely a lot more like everyday vibes off duty and then just for accessories. I know I haven't talked much about accessories, but I opted for these YSL sunglasses. I feel like Haley Bieber made them famous.
I don't know if she actually has this exact hair, but it's something very similar anyway. I love them so much, they are so elegant, simple and similar. bags I feel like if you have a pair in black and a pair in a kind of brownie color then you can wear all the outfits so yeah this is my little black hair and I've had them for about two and three years. maybe and I have used them a ridiculous amount and they are still in excellent condition. I also have some really good dupes for these linked below, but if I'm completely honest, most of the time I wear sunglasses is simply to get my hair out of my face rather than wearing them on my eyes.
She is wise with this outfit. I have opted for some low Converse. These are the black and white ones. Yeah, every time I wear them, they definitely feel very casual. I have lost my javancy. horizon, they don't sell this anymore, however the white cell sac du jour is very similar and what I like about this one is that it adds a little bit of structure to a very casual outfit, so I feel like it balances out really well and also goes al angular t is that a word angularity oh my gosh my english um yeah it goes pretty well with the sunglasses so I think it goes really well and this has silver hardware and I'm weird because I love mixing silver and gold jewelry, but I can't mix silver and gold accessories with Converse, they have little silver eyelets and there is no way I can wear a gold bag, I don't know why, so this is my only silver bag, so this is what I want.
For this one, I love the color of the next top. I think it's so beautiful and perfect for summer. This one is from Pretty Lavish and I love all of their knitwear and they have dresses, tops, jumpers, all the same. It is a very good quality material and, although it is knitted, it does not feel too heavy for summer. I'm wearing this sage green color, they also have it in other colors and yes, I think it's very flattering, really. I like the way it falls slightly off the shoulders and I've paired it with white wide leg pants again.
These are the new look. This video makes me realize that I have an incredible amount of new look clothes, but I work. I've worked with them for three four years so naturally I have a lot of stuff from them but yeah I love thesepants. They weighed about 20 pounds and are such good quality that they are not see-through. It doesn't really wrinkle. I love its shape. I feel like they won't fit many sizes so I'll link some similar ones below, but the great thing about capsule wardrobes is that everything is pretty timeless, so there will be hundreds of versions of these on the internet and as always I'll link lots of similar ones. below, but yeah, these are really nice wide leg pants. belt loops and they are great because they are versatile, you can wear them quite casually like I did today or you can dress it up with heels as if it were an evening outfit for going out too.
I decided not to go with a belt with This I just feel like the really clean transition between the top and the pants looks really good and I think a black belt would be too heavy and a brown belt just wouldn't go with the green so I kept it simple and then the shoes. As for the good, you could even go for white sneakers or some white sandals and I chose the white sandals, but you can't see them anyway so I don't think it matters too much, okay, now we're on to the last pair. for shorts and pants I have opted for these white ones from Zara I love these you have the pockets on the side when I don't have pockets I feel lost like I don't know what to do in my hands something happens, I feel uncomfortable so I'm glad it has pockets , it also has a very subtle dart down here, which I really like, it makes them look a little bit more elegant and fitted and again, they're just a They're a really nice length, they're a little bit longer, which definitely suits me better since I always felt a little uncomfortable when I wear shorts that are a little short and I just paired them with a new looking belt.
I've honestly had this belt, maybe I want it for about four years and it's in perfect condition, I think it's from their premium range and I mean I think it weighs about 10 pounds, it's still super cheap but yeah I love this belt , they still do it. Sell it too and then, as you can see, the same Zara top as before. I just paired it with my Gucci loafers. I love my Gucci loafers because I can wear them in spring, summer and fall, which I don't like as much. The thing about these shorts is that they wrinkle very easily as soon as you sit down and the fabric folds, they wrinkle.
It's a little frustrating, but I actually think it's pretty hard to find white shorts that aren't made of this material. These are like thick cotton. A piece of advice that I have on days like today when I don't have all the time in the world because I am aware that the light goes out and I want to show you all the looks. A good trick is this. great little formula in a bottle this is a Lenore wrinkle releaser and what I do is I literally spray it on. I just do this every now and then it smoothes it out and removes the wrinkles.
It's magic, I use this. on my sheets normally, if I'm ever in a hurry and need to remove wrinkles like shirts or pants, this is the answer. Funny story, also, I was out wearing them the other day and I had a long day ahead of me and I knew that if they wrinkled too much as the day went on I would get upset, so I put some of this in a mini spray bottle that I he removed it spraying as he went. I know that's not ideal and it's probably quite extra but it works for me this next outfit is another one that I've been wearing a lot, I just love it, it really gives me a sort of slightly preppy old school vibes, it's very Ralph Lauren, That's what it is, it's a very strong brand, I used this. suit to start in the spring, but I actually chose long pants instead of shorts and now that we are in the warmer months I have transferred to shorts, I think this one is nude but I think it's sold out, but um The new look has one exactly the same, um, how you like it, I'll stick with it, so I'll link a lot of different options at different prices below again.
I've gone for that kind of unbuttoned look that I love with the little lace mark underneath. The lace front is nude and I love these bralettes so much that I just gave them up in fact, I love them because they're obviously not padded but somehow they give you so much lift that I don't know what it is about them, I love them. belt, this is from the new look again, just like our pants and with this look I chose a tan accessory, so the belt is then attached to the sliders which are from Hermes. I think this would also look great with white sneakers.
I also opted for the little elastic band cut again to keep the sleeves rolled up nicely and then the accessories. I opted for my Celine sunglasses in this one just because she has a brown color that really matches the accessories and what. The really cool thing about these Celine sunglasses is that they are black and brown, so they basically go with any outfit. I love them, in fact, they are very dirty. I need to clean them, but yeah, I can't get enough of this set. I love it now, let's move on to the last part of the video, which is dresses.
This next dress is one of my favorite purchases this summer. I think it's impressive. I already featured this on my Instagram, Tik Tok, and YouTube channel, but I had to do it. Include it in this video and again this is from a new look and it's just this beautiful lemon print and I rarely wear prints or colors so the fact that I like this says a lot it has all this beautiful kind of gathering and ruching . the bust then you have like this central panel here that hugs you at the waist so it's very flattering and it also has a little bit of stretch in the back so it's very comfortable and it's so light and airy that it's perfect for the heat wave this he will definitely come to Italy with me too.
I think this would look perfect in capri. I just had visions of this basically, the dream would be a new look to highlight this in white and nude and even black because I love wearing things like this even when I work from home because they are so light it doesn't feel like you're wearing anything, but it still looks so pretty that it also has a small opening towards the top. I actually ripped it down the side and then sewed it to make it look a little longer. She is wise. I paired it with my Casterner wedges.
I bought them from Netapate. These are very comfortable heels and really lovely for summer. And I think the shape. that you may like to cross the tie on the leg it is very flattering you don't want to wear wedges and you want to go a little more casual you can easily wear it with sandals or sneakers the next dress is very old Hm, I've had this for about four or five years , but I take it out every summer because I find it very flattering, it's very easy to wear. The best thing about dresses is that you only have to think about one thing and I don't have to think about matching the blouse with the pants, so whenever I'm feeling lazy I usually wear a dress like this, although it will definitely no longer be in stock , there are many similar ones.
I actually have one that is quite similar to the Amazon fashion in white, which is another really good option for summer, but yeah, I love this one because it's very figure hugging, it's very flattering and I think with an all black dress You can't go wrong, it's very classic. I actually just ordered one like this in that pretty sage green color so once it arrives I'm sure I'll show it to you on my YouTube and this bag is the ysl lulu. I think I introduced it a lot in the video. but I didn't actually feature it, this is one of my favorites, it's a great everyday bag and then the last dress and the last outfit that I have to show you is this really pretty Zara lace mini dress.
I bought it right at the beginning of summer and I love it, I think it's so pretty that you have all this, like details and lace on the front, it's also double lined so nothing shows through and I love the sleeves and the seams. slightly sheer and has this elastic here so you can pull them up or down as you like and we can't pull them up so you can see all the pretty details like I love it so much I definitely think it's a The little white mini dress is essential for the summer wardrobe. Zara always got this right, they have so many pretty ones, I guess the only thing with Zara dresses is that everyone has them and you can tell when a dress is from Zara which sometimes puts me off but I love Zara dresses so I can't speak the same way.
I think a black mini dress is another really cool wardrobe essential for me. I've paired it with my white Gucci Princeton loafers but I actually also love the look of cute mini dresses with sneakers so I think YSL sneakers would also look really cute with this and then as for the bag, I chose my vintage chanel, the outfit felt very white and I wanted to separate it a little. a little bit without being too harsh and using black and beige seemed pretty appropriate to me, so guys, that brings me to the end of this video. I really enjoyed filming this.
