Striped Dress

For some time now I’ve been using striped pieces, particularly shirts and blouses, and today I will tell you a bit as appeared this trend that never goes out of style. garments with the stripes were abhorred for a time, and only from the modern age had a different concept. With this new concept, the stripes began to have the rise from the XVI to the XVII century, gaining space among the nobles, and soon began to appear among the costumes of the great film actors. The strips are quickly assimilated into the uniform of sailors, and it was Coco Chanel who made it famous when she brought the model for women’s clothing, so from this day the pattern is a reference to a classic and democratic style. For today’s look, I chose the strips that is my must-have in my wardrobe. The dress has a straight cut, thinner strips,…

Animal print + T-shirt

Hello, Brazil in da house !! For the outfit I propose today, I decided to make a mix, wearing one piece with an animal print pattern and a more stripped one to give a “cool” touch to the production, but at the same time let it balanced. The animal print is a classic already, and it has gone through some color variations, shades and sizes on your print. Some people do not like it and some people really love it, it is a pattern that requires some care and attention at the time of use, but here’s a golden tip: mix any part or accessory sportier, as the animal print recalls a bit of attention, requires something more simple and light to complement the rest of the look.
