StyledByLydia #02 : Late Summer/Pre-fall Outfit Ideas

 

 

 

Hello,

How are you doing? Good I hope!
I have bad news and good news for you today.
Here is the bad news;
My phone is currently faulty; it fell into water and has refused to come on back.
Now the most painful part is that, they said I can’t restore any of my data; my contacts, my pictures and videos, documents and files, my notes and so much more, everything is on the phone and I can’t get them back even if I repair the phone.
All I can say right now is All Is Well, God knows the best.

The good news is;

OOTD ; The Vintage Chic

Hello ,
How has the half of the year been for you?
Great I hope.

So here is another outfit post for you.
Over here is a dress I’ve always had in my wardrobe but never wore. Why? Because it was retro,not in vogue.
Back then, I never had the confidence to wear what I wanted. Self confidence is the best outfit you can ever acquire trust me.
And that’s one of the best lessons blogging has taught me so far (alongside my hangout with Ijenna), been comfortable with who I am and with my personal style.
I can’t believe I was this close to either giving out or disposing this dress, well I’m glad I didn’t.

Not only do I love the florals of this dress but also the front slit. It gives this classy feel.

Paired with a nude pair of heels and a white purse, very few accessories did justice to this vintage dress.

What is your take on vintage? Would you rather rock Vintage or Vogue?
And do you think you you have the confidence to rock your personal style (what you want to rock, how you want to rock it, when you want to rock it) ?

Your thoughts are very important….

Style trends to look out for in 2016(1)

Hi everyone, how’s your week been so far?
Mine has been great,except for the sun…😂😂
So we are in the third month of the year and the trends are starting to play out.
I decided to share some of the trends I think you should look out for. I divided this topic into two,so it wouldn’t be too long a post(yeah). Here goes the first section;

 

•Off the shoulder;
2016 or no 2016 I love the off shoulder,it accentuates of a woman depending on your shape though and how you style it. It happens to suit my shape, so it’s a YES for me.

•Billowy and flare sleeves;
This one will make you stand right out of the crowd and make you look different. There are different forms of billowy sleeves,so you should get one that suits you.

•Shoulder cut-outs;
Last year it was midriff cut-outs and now we we are here with the shoulder cut-outs. They are quite similar to the off shoulder but this time there is something holding on to the shoulders. We keeping seeing different varieties of shoulder cut-outs.

•Bomber jackets;
I reeally love this one. The bomber jacket  is quite versatile and chic.
They are all lovely, its quite difficult for me to choose the one i love most.

Looking at what designers like Valentino, Balmain,a lot others and even down to our very own ISIGO by Bubu Ogisi are giving us for 2016. I’m excepting more of it and looking forward to experiment with it.

•White sneaks;
There seem to be a general style crush on white sneakers. White sneakers or footwear on normal day should be a basic in your wardrobe.
They are very versatile when it comes to styling.

Looking at the collage above,we can see it’s not just the women,even the men are into bomber jackets and white sneaks.

In the second part I’ll be talking more on the shoes,prints and trends for men too,so wait on it.

What do you think of them?
I really love the bomber jackets,fringes and tassels, and the off shoulder trend.
Which is/are your favorite(s)?

PS; I don’t have an app to put numbers and names on the pictures. Which was why I arranged their Instagram handles in accordance with the pictures,from top most left down to the bottom right.
