How To: Leather Cuffs

I really love leather accessories. Consider leather bracelets the next time you are shopping for cutting-edge jewelry. Leather has always been popular in fashion accessories, but now it is easier than ever to add bold leather pieces into your current look.

My primary source of inspiration has been a collection designed by Eniana Velcani, I absolutely love her gloves-cuffs.

Holiday Gloves and Socks

Nothing gets me in the holiday mood faster than a cute pair of gloves or/and a cozy pair of socks.

Stylish gloves will make your outfits instantly interesting this winter. Plus, they’re a necessity when it comes to protecting your hands from the elements: wind and cold are great enemies! Get your paws on a pair of stylish winter gloves!

Socks are to winter what ice-cream is to summer: a bright, personal touch – especially when paired with the right shoes. I love the fun socks that peek from beneath your pants or that are the perfect match for your sneakers, or those who are not visible but are your own inside joke. Nevertheless, your socks can be a styling statement.

As there are a lot of DIY mittens ideas for this season, I found this picture that gave me a great idea. Why not make a pair of mittens from an old sweater and then reuse the sweater with a lace blouse underneath or just with a colored t-shirt! Have to give this idea a try! Keep you posted on the outcome!

How to: Capes

A cape can be the superhero of your fall wardrobe, working without any effort to save your office, weekend, and after-hours looks from anonymity. The most recognizable cape has to be Burberry’s customizable poncho. After the models closed the Fall 2014 Burberry Prorsum show, all wrapped in their very own versions, it-girls Cara Delevingne and Suki Waterhouse took the trend right off the catwalk into their own outfits — and they aren’t the only ones who can’t get enough of the silhouette! Sarah Jessica Parker and Olivia Palermo have also sported the hot item.

Knowing what to wear with the cape coat style can be tricky. Cape coats can be a bit restrictive, but if you pay a little attention to your outfit choices you can easily make them one of the most versatile pieces in your wardrobe. Not to mention that they are also a fashionable alternative to your normal winter coat or jacket. Here are a few ideas for what to wear with cape coats.

Team them with some wide legged jeans for a ’70s inspired feel.

The turtleneck top is a must-have piece for creating the layered look, so popular, this season. Wearing it with capes is a great idea.

Or go directly to the next level by wearing a knitted turtleneck cape. Keep the rest of your look streamlined with slim fitting pants.

How to accessorize a cape: I would say that long gloves are an essential.

Cape coats and knee high boots are a match made in fashion heaven – a perfect way for creating a glamorous look. Wear your knee high boots and capes with tights, shorts and dresses.

And wide-brimmed hats
