Urban Nomads Lala Berlin

I liked the idea of taking the wonders of the desert in an urban context. This is what Berlin located brand Lala Berlin did. Organic forms and prints, light and silky materials paired with irregularities, inserts of lace or asymmetrical cuts define a modern, yet romantic feminine collection.

I especially loved a certain jumpsuit with wide legs and ruffles at the front. The delicate straps provide a beautiful décolletage and don’t steal the show of statement sunglasses and bag. I chose the Fendi bag which is the perfect accessory for a look that is based on prints and flowing materials as it doesn’t take away the lightness but sure gives a vibe of fashionable statement thanks to its own organic form.

Lala Berlin’s collection was all about a mix of contemporary modernism with traditional habits. That’s the reason why I mixed my very modern printed jumpsuit with heavier mule-boots in a statement color: yellow.

How to wear: A Statement Dress

A statement dress can be the perfect look for summertime. You don’t have to wear a thousand layers (or can’t), so your look is defined by a few pieces and it might be not the easiest thing to stand out the colorful crowd in the city. A statement dress is a great alternative to shorts and a top if you like to achieve a certain level of daintiness and comfort.

The Dorothee Schumacher dress is a true eye catcher thanks to its material and very extravagant color. The orange harness and ruffles details may be an obstacle when deciding to wear it or not. But once you’ll wear it you’ll immediately feel the runway vibe. It’s a very warm and lobster colored orange which works fine with tanned skin.

I know, sometimes we feel a little bit shy or self conscious when it comes to fashion and we prefer to keep it low key. But don’t take the fashion circus too serious! Play around with colors and styles! And wearing a beautiful classic cut with popping color details is a first step in the right direction.

The secret behind wearing a statement piece like this dress is to keep the accessories simple and less colorful. You see? It’s really easy to dress up colorful. This long sleeve dress by Dorothee Schumacher with orange harness and ruffle detail is the perfect statement piece for a nice cocktail night out! So put your pumps on and have fun!

Riani brings back the colourful style of the 70s and combines light materials with wild leather and ethnic look. The company booked many well-known faces from “GNTM” for its runway: From Rebecca Mir to Luisa Hartema and the top three finalists from the previous season Vanessa Fuchs, Anuthida Ploypetch and Ajsa Selimovic. Lovely!

Spring – Full Midi Skirt Look

A full midi skirt is a beautiful and fun alternative to regular midi or mini skirts. It’s volume and cut is very feminine and emphasizes the female silhouette. The 50’s charm can be a bit too fancy for a day-to-day look and I would like to show you a great combination that works!

The skirt by Dorothee Schumacher features a delicate flower print and a broad belt with silver hardware around the waist. Clearly, this skirt is the eyecatcher of the look and we don’t want to take the spotlight away from it… So I combined a plain white basic baseball top and tucked it in. The delicate silver necklace by Lilou compliments the silver hardware of the skirt and adds a bit of girly attitude to the grown-up look.

To make it even more playful and keep the 50’s atmosphere I combined the look with fun leo pumps which also feature a red bow.

This full midi skirt look is playful, flattering and suitable for daily use at the same time! Would you try it?
