Fashion sistsers: One Look, Two Styles: Chic Socks and Sandals

Accessoires/ Rebel Alexa/ Romantique/ Shoes/ Wardrobe

Fashion sisters socks and sandals

Can Socks and sandals even be chic, I hear some of you say. Of course! We are not talking about thick cotton wool socks in Birkenstocks! We have plateau sandals and colourful socks in mind as weel as sequinned wool knee-highs paired with strappy sandals.  Go for a monochrome look, teaming socks and shoe colour,  for a more subtle take on the look.

Rebel chose to go for bright blue socks and plateau open sandals, matching the colour of her jumper. A bright, fun look. The coordination of the jumper and socks calms the whole outfit, making it look pulled together.

  • Rebel is wearing: Blue socks from Falke, Jeans from Tribeca, coat by Gianfranco Ferre.

I chose to wear black thick socks and strappy, bronze sandals. The playful bubble skirt and quirky macaroon necklace are the cherry on top of this whimsical look.

  • Romantique is wearing: Navy and pink striped bubble skirt and sandals  from Max & Co. Macaron necklace from N2 Les Nereides. Purple and pink patterned coat from Max & co.

Meow – Leopard Print Forever

Dresses/ Romantique/ Wardrobe

I love leopard print! It never goes out of fashion and is wearable in summer just like in winter. Don’t be afraid to wear it, just follow a few rules and you’re good to dazzle in this gorgeous animal print!

  • Very important to not look tacky in leopard print: When wearing a leopard dress, stick with classic, structured shapes and make sure not to show too much boobs or legs.
  • Keep accessories (jewellery, studs, makeup) to a minimum and let the leopard print take centre stage. Structured handbags and classic pumps will look best with leopard print
  • Chose natural and luxurious materials for leopard print like silk, cotton and other natural fibres. Avoid artificial fabrics that can scream cheap
  • Don’t try pattern clash: I love flower print clash but never repeat this with animal prints!
  • Still not sure about animal print? Try accessories like shoes, belts, handbags, scarves.

Above and below: I’m wearing a knee length leopard print summer dress with a belt and flared skirt from Max & Co, combined  with a pastel pink cashmere cardigan and nude flat Pretty Ballerinas. Small cross body bag from Moschino (Oliva).

Thanks Kim Kardashian for showing us how not to wear leopard print: This clingy, tight dress shows waay too much cleavage and makes her look cheap.
