The New Year’s DIY outfit

large (47)

As you’ve probably already figured  it out, DIY stands for Do It Yourself.

In this post I’ll show you some outfits that you can put together yourself for the New Year’s party, without much effort or money.

If you don’t want to spend a lot on the outfit or you want to re-wear something you already have, the ideal thing to do is to find a center piece of the outfit (it can be a dress, a pair of pants or an interesting top) and “construct” the rest of the outfit around that special item.

Don’t forget to add some details (a cute ribbon, a belt, a nice strap on the bag/shoes) and a contrasting color if you pick an all black/white/gold outfit. Don’t mix in the same outfit more than 3 colors (white and black do not count as colors in this case), choose tasteful jewelry (keep in mind : bigger is not always better) and you are ready to shine like a VIP at the New Year’s party without a personal stylist or expensive clothing.

Winter Fashion

1. A white simple top + a red A-line skirt + a beautiful head-band = a perfect outfit for going to the Christmas party or just going out/to a date/ to an informal meeting

Let’s dress for winter!

winter is coming

You know the drill : every year we have to give up the frilly skirts, the petite shorts and the beautiful dresses, because -brace yourselves- winter is coming! But do not panic, there is a way to look stunning in winter without freezing to death and without looking frumpy. That way is : elegant coats, over-sized knitted sweaters and gorgeous dresses. Lolita will show you how to pair them up to create the best outfits ever! Enjoy 🙂

Street-wear

The coat is a must-have this winter! It doesn’t matter what fashion style you have, you can always find that perfect coat to fit you and make you look and feel beautiful. If you want a little bit of femininity, choose a tighter coat to emphasize your waist and wear it with tights and a dress/skirt underneath (outfits 1 and 7 in the collage above). If you desire to feel cozy and comfortable, pick a looser coat and wear it with a pair of jeans, boots/comfortable shoes and an over-sized bag (outfits 3, 4 and 8 in the collage). And if your style is elegant and sophisticated, choose a coat with a simple straight cut and wear it with tights or skinny jeans, high-heeled shoes and a simple bag (outfits 2, 5 and 6 in the collage). So flaunt your personal style by wearing the perfect coat!

Even if you pick a shorter dress, if you wear it with tights, a longer coat and cozy boots, you won’t be cold and you will look absolutely amazing. So you can choose a bolder color like red (pictures number 4 and 8), whimsical white (pictures 1, 6 and 7) or go really elegant and pick a light gray (pictures 2, 3 and 9). Of course, the little black dress never gets old and you can make a big impression by wearing one (picture 5).

Pink skirts are in, as always. Pair them up with an over-sized sweater (pictures 13 and 19), a classy blouse/shirt (pictures 10 and 11) or a simple top (picture 12). You can also choose a black skirt and wear it with tight sweaters (picture 14), delicate blouses (picture 16) or knitted sweaters (picture 20). For a more retro style, pick a schoolgirl like outfit (picture 15) or go full vintage with a laced skirt, an over-sized sweater and retro accessories (picture 18). If you like the modern day-to-day look, pick a printed skirt and a neutral colored cardigan (picture 17). Don’t forget to accessorize your outfit for that extra wow-factor.
