It seems like 2016 has started off faster than the speed of light! It’s already February, which means that spring is coming in only one month! Just thinking about the cherry blossoms coming out in Japan in a few months brings a flash of happiness to my heart. So my dear fashionistas, spring is almost here and with spring we have a new wave of style and inspiring colors and fabrics.
This new and exciting monkey year has already inspired me to reach deep into my closet and bring out the fabulous maxi dresses! Ever since I was at the Tbilisi Fashion Week last year and saw the amazing Asian-inspired creations, I have been in love with the long and flowing cuts. It’s the ageless face of the super feminine look!
Yet since we are actually in February, the question that comes to mind is, what do we wear on top of these long and flowing maxi dresses? It’s still bloody cold outside, yet we want to look and feel like a spring blossom! I have always had a passion for rock chic, so for me, what I love most is combining the ultra feminine with a bold leather statement! And that means, topping off the dresses with beautiful tight leather jacket that fits the body like a second skin! And who is better at leather jackets than Belstaff?
As I was trying on the jackets for our photo shoot, the lovely Belstaff store manager informed me that they are having a #LOVEBELSTAFF special offer from the 8 – 14th of February. This offer is for lovers and especially Belstaff lovers! There are sweet presents and gifts for your lover during this special week. So of course I had to share this sweet information with you dear readers! This special offer is available this week in Frankfurt, Munich and Milan.
The cool thing about Belstaff is that their products are very versatile. Not only can you wear your favorite jacket when riding your bike, but you can also combine it with your glamorous maxi dresses – for that Laissez-faire kind of look! In the photos below, you can see how I combined my favorite Religion dress with two different Belstaff jackets. The Sidney jacket gives the dress a more sleek and sophisticated look, while the Bellamy jacket with the integrated belt buckle gives it a more “Hippy-chic-Ibiza-on-a-motorcycle” kind of feeling! Both looks are adaptable enough to wear for a nice lunch during a spring day, as a cocktail party look or even to a fancy evening event.
In the photo shooting, you see how I combined both looks with the Belstaff Avaline bag, which is big enough to carry our thousand things inside, which we women love to carry so much!
I always enjoy going into the Belstaff store and looking around at everything they have, especially the nice accessories that they offer in their collection. Let’s not forget that Valentine’s Day is coming soon – which happens to be one of my favorite times of the year. The perfect way to say I love you with a nice Belstaff cashmere scarf, wallet, handbag or a sexy leather jacket!
So my dears, feel bold and daring to combine your beautiful flowing dresses with tight leather jackets to make that unforgettable appearance!
I wish you all a happy, loving and healthy Valentine’s Day!
