One of the great expectations in the ending of the year for us who love fashion is to discover which color Pantone is going to chose as the one for the new year that's coming. After Greenery, the grass green that represented, among other things, the respect and the care with forests and nature in general, this time is the turn of Ultraviolet.

I confess I have never overcomed the Rose Quartz since 2016 when it got chosen by Pantone as the color of the year - together with Serenity Blue -, but, I really liked Pantone's chose for ultraviolet. It even matches the rose that I love!

MEANING: According to the Pantone's website, the Ultraviolet means imagination, ingenuity, creativity and a greater world's vision about a better future. Sounds interesting for you? We can say it's pretty appropriate for the moment we're living around the world. Do you agree??

OTHERS YEAR'S COLORS: Just for the record, coincidently the Pantone's chosen in last years were, most of times, cold shades. In 2010 and 2011 they've chosen shades a little bit warmer, then came back to the cold ones from 2012.

So what about some inspiring ideas for you to dress the color of 2018?

Ultraviolet is really a highlighting color, which means it illuminates any other color that you choose to match with it, specially the neutral shades. A rocker outfit can hang this color very well, among bands prints and draws. A ladylike production also fits very well with the ultraviolet - you can try it with candy colors, for example!

But it's ok if you don't want to bet on outfits in this color. There are also the accessories that you can use it as a color point in the middle of your look. The ultraviolet brings modernity in a delicate way to your outfit, anytime of the day or night.

In the Beauty, ultraviolet means strong personality. Hair, eyes, lipstick and nails are exploding in style and authenticity in those lovely purple shades. It worths choosing the ultraviolet for the eyes, in a dramatic production; it worths matching it with black or brown; also, you can choose a lighter option for the eyes and apply an ultraviolet lipstick. Or even choosing the color for your hair and leave everything of the make up lighter and cleaner to balance.

Summertime is the season in which we usually choose to dress and to make up lighter. And what does this mean in terms of outfits? It means light/pastel colors, natural fibers, fluid fabrics - all this topics contribute for us to sweat less and feel more comfortable. Dresses, for example, are such a great option for this season, once you don't need to think about a second piece of clothing, besides it is fresh.
 
Taylor Swift is a referency when we speak about dresses: she's always clicked wearing one. Her girly-romantic style is imprinted on her foral dresses and delicated complements. Sometimes they're colorful, sometimes they're pastel, but either way they're inspiring and fashionable. Take a look at those selected outfits of the pop singer and choose your favorite one! ;)

 EVASÉ MODELING

Waisted dresses always values the female silhouette, specially, if they get the "A" line on the skirt - also called "evasé modeling". Besides she's skinny, Taylor always uses this kind of dresses.

If you dress something basic on your look, you should try matching it with some stylish accessories - they're wonderful! Taylor uses, for example, vintage sunglasses (that matches floral dresses perfectly) and flat sandals in neutral color (nude or brown). 

INTERESTING DETAILS

Metallized accessories are so trendy even for the Summer, so, give them a try (not only at night, but during the day). As they're not discreet, they give pastel tones and romantical moods an extra touch. Do as Taylor Swift and try metallized shoes or purses - or even nails!

Another way of giving an interesting touch to your romantic summer dress is by wearing vibrant colors - such as the third look in the image above, in which the singer wears a yellow-and-green floral dress. So cute and luminous! If you're in doubt about which accessory match with vibrant colors, it's simple: try the neutral ones, as I've told before (like nude, brown, black and white).

PASTEL X VIBRANT COLORS

And once we're talking about colors: here is the Greenery! Audacious and fashion, Taylor tried the 2017 tone to a red-and-yellow floral dress, far away from any monotony! The romantic mood of the dress gives a balance to the oufit. Besides this color 'explosion', it seems the pop diva loves a light color, once it appears in most of her looks. So if you share the same taste of wearing, this is the chance for you to get inspired! Delicacy might be her premise.

The color for 2017: Greenery

January 2, 2017


fashion | fashion tips | greenery | color of 2017 | the color for 2017 | greenery outfits | female fashion | autumn winter | summer | fashion 2017

You might know already that the color for the year of 2017 is the Greenery. Considered by Pantone a refreshing and revitalizing shade, it was chosen because it represents  redevelopment - well, considering everything negative that happened in 2016, this is completely acceptable and welcome, don't you think?!

NATURE GREEN

The greenery is also directly connected to the nature, so you might probably think about how to match this tipical color with others! I confess that, for a moment, I thought nothing would be possible to match with this shade except itself and its variations, but I was obviously wrong. You can match Greenery with lots of other tones - that go so beyond the neutrals we love, such as white, black, nude and grey. Let me show you!

fashion | fashion tips | greenery | color of 2017 | the color for 2017 | greenery outfits | female fashion | autumn winter | summer | fashion 2017

It was possible to see this color in some catwalks, on the latest fashion shows in 2016. Among some brands that made a bet on it, there are Lacoste - showing the Greenery in a sportwear mood with grey pants -, Emilio Pucci - matching the color with yellow shoes, which is a great option, once both are practically surtons (Brazilian mood!) - and Michael Kords created such an interesting mix and match between Greenery and Blue, with flower prints, so tropical.

WINTER AND SUMMER

Well, you might also think if we're talking about a "nature color", it's probably more coherent to use it on Summer. If you think like that, you're wrong. The Greenery is neutral and appropriate for any time of the year. The secret is to remember that: when Pantone stipulates a color, we musn't forget about its variatons. So dark green, for example, is perfect for mid season and winter. Take a look at those pretty outfits and get inspired by them!

ACCESSORIES AND COMPLEMENTS

Of course we should agree about something: green is a remarkable color. So if you're thinking about using it differently, try to begin with one or another accessory in the color, between other neutral shades. Then, you create the famous styling trick called "color points".

Summer 2017’s shoes: flatform sandals

December 2, 2016


 

fashion | trends | flatforms | flatform sandals | shoes | fashion 2016 | fashion 2017 | 2017 trends | style | flatform shoes

Despite slides and sneakers are so high trendy from now until the next season, I've been falling in love for flatforms.

The reason is that high heels (those very big) are making me feel so uncomfortable and so painfull by using them that I've just got angry and stopped wearing it (don't care I'm short!).

fashion | trends | flatforms | flatform sandals | shoes | fashion 2016 | fashion 2017 | 2017 trends | style | flatform shoes

The solution to stay a little bit taller plus feeling comfortable?  This one: FLATFORMS! If you feel the same way as me with high heels and wants to dress a little more elegant sometimes without feeling pain, this is the way. Take a look at some models and outfits that are very pretty and trendy for this next season and get yourself inspired!

  • NEUTRAL COLORS 

Black, off white, nude and similars are the best option to maitain a basic outfit (to go to work, for example) without losing elegance. Nobody deserves wearing scarpin shoes during 9 hours a day and feeling pain, right? So this is a great choice. 

fashion | trends | flatforms | flatform sandals | shoes | fashion 2016 | fashion 2017 | 2017 trends | style | flatform shoes

  • METALLICS 

They're currently trendy and loved by all fashion girls and boys. But, depending on the area you work, it might be "forbidden". If you work in a more liberal field, that allows more modern kind of wearing, take a chance! Look at how many cute possibilities you can wear with those shoes...

fashion | trends | flatforms | flatform sandals | shoes | fashion 2016 | fashion 2017 | 2017 trends | style | flatform shoes

  • PRINTED/TEXTURED 

Prints and textures are not so restrictive as the mettalics - they call less the attention. And the bright side (as mettalics, too) is that they can lel up a neutral or very simple outfit. If you have to wear something very sober or serius and wants to give your outfit an extra charm, this might be the way.

  • EXTRA TIPS

1- Short heights: make use of colors that are similar to your skin and use those flatforms with minilenghts to make your legs look longer.

2- Long heights: do the opposite as the short girls - because you don't need to look taller. So try some pieces of clothes that may be shorten your silhouette, such as pantacourts, midi lenghts, horizontal stripes and color blocking.

3- Fat silhouette: enjoy the flatforms to look taller and make use of lengthener effects in the clothes! Dark colors, vertical stripes, evasé modellings, two pieces in the same color or same print are styling tricks that will make you look even more pretty! ;)

Harry Potter and The Cursed Child: the eighth book’s review

November 16, 2016


 

harry potter | harry potter movies | harry potter and the cursed child | harry potter the eighth story | harry potter books

I'm not going to spoiler this post, in consideration to all the fans who still hasn't read the most recently book of the one of the most lovely fiction stories in the world: yes, I am a huge fan of Harry Potter. If you are, too, come with me!

ORIGIN 

The eighth story, originally created to be presented in a play, in London - something that happened early in January this year, if my memory is good - and became a book later, according to a deal made between the first author of the story, J. K. Rowling and the scriptwriter and the director, respectively, John Tiffany and Jack Thorne. So myself, as a great "Harry Potter-maniac", bought my book soon its pre-sale launched. It arrived at home on Harry Potter's bday - October 31st. I've read it in two days (couldn't do it faster, because I haven't more free time to do it).

THE STORY

So I decided to do this review in order to tell a little bit about the story for those who couldn't read it yet, something as an introduction. I think doing it in topics makes it more dinamic. So: 

1- If you're curious and intrigued about the tittle, you'd better be, really. However, I would say the tittle of this book works like a joke. Read it and you'll understand!

2- This isn't a conventional book, written in the same narrative-descriptive way as the others. It is a a script about the play that is made, most of time, in dialogues. By the way, if you like more simple texts, in dialogue formats, you will love it!

3- Do not subestimate this format, however! I confess I thought it would be boring, at the beginning, but I just loved it so much. You "suffer" and "celebrate" with parts of it the same way you've done in the other books of the saga. I assure you is the same emotion!

4- I'll take a risk to say that, the way this eighth book ends, it makes a space for continuation. A nineth book, or maybe a tenth! I would love it, what do you say??

5- This eighth story, that is the script of the play, shows us an unexpected side of Harry Potter, that has never been showed before. I found that really interesting, once it makes Harry more real. Afterall, heroes are great, but if they're made of flash and blood like us, they'll probably have weaknesses and flaws, like everyone.

So if you've already read this book and has something to say - something that I didn't say here -, just leave a comment and let's exchange information about this lovery story!
