One of the most important clothing items a girl needs to have in her closet is the Plain White T-shirt. Its versatility and comfort proves how useful it is to own at least one! There are different neck-lines and fabrics to choose from and you can find them everywhere. From a supermarket to a high end store, there will always be a white T waiting for you!
Now that spring is arriving (hopefully soon since I’m freezing in Rome right now!), I decided to show you 20 ways to spice up your outfits while wearing a plain white T. With this post I wanted to show how versatile the white shirt is since you can wear it from day to night, to a business meeting or just to grab a cup of coffee. You will also see the importance of accessories and how they can bring life to an every day outfit.
If you’re interested on watching these 20 outfits then keep on scrolling down! I hope you enjoy this post and let me know in the comments section below if you found it useful! Have a great sunday everyone :)

One of my must-have pieces for this winter has to be the ankle booties. Ankle booties have been trending since last year but now they’re seen everywhere. You can find them from the most luxurious brands to your local boutique. What’s best is that they come in different colors, textures, heights and prints, adapting to each and everyones personal style.
The options are endless when it comes to styling and choosing the perfect pair of ankle booties because they’ll look good with everything; from flowy dresses and skirts to boyfriend jeans, cropped pants and skirts. They will elongate your legs if you chose a pair with heels, give you comfort if you choose a flat pair and they’ll give a touch of style to an everyday outfit.
Now that I conviced you (hopefully!) that a pair of ankle booties will definitelly help to improve your winter closet, keep scrolling down so you can check out some street style inspiration and outfits I created on my Polyvore account on how to style them. Also, I made a table showing you several types of ankle booties proving that it doesn’t matter if you’re on a budget or want to splurge on a good pair of boots!
I hope you enjoy this post, have a great beggining of week everyone :)

Outfit ideas with ankle booties:
Hello everyone! I’ve realized that one of my favorite posts I’ve created so far has to be the one of Steal the Style. I love analyzing a celebrity’s style from head to toe and showing you how to achieve their looks and style using more affordable pieces. With that being said, for my second post of – Steal the Style -, I decided to chose actress Lily Collins.
Lily is a 24 year old English American actress known for her roles in The Blind Side, Abduction, and the fantasy film adaptation The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones. Even though she has just started to take part in mayor film roles, her style can’t be unnoticed. Now that she’s appearing in more red carpets, we’ve seen her daring but still refined looks. You can tell in her style that she mixes perfectly her English rose roots with the fresh airs of California, the city that she’s been living since she was 5.
Her street style is relaxed and casual. She keeps her accessories minimal, wears basic items but knows how to mix them to make her outfit put together. She uses comfortable clothes and adds a boho chic and laid back rocker girl air to her looks. Check out some of my favorite ones:
Her red carpet style instead is very high fashion, she takes risks and wears the latest fashion trends. Lily looks more mature on the red carpet because of her red carpet outfit choices and bold makeup. Cut-outs, crop tops and backless dresses are a few of her risky fashion choices which she manages to make them look elegant and fancy. Check out some of my favorite ones:
If you love her style as much as I did and want to copy it, I created two outfits inspired by her. The pieces are similar to what she wore and they’re also more affordable. (I’ll also post the links of them below).
Street Style Look:
T shirt: MANGO
Blazer: Sold out :(
Riding Boots: Unisa
Sunglasses: Vera Bradley
Red Carpet Look:
Blouse: Atelier 61
Skirt: Sophie Hulme
Chain Necklace: River Island
Hope you enjoyed this post and let me know in the comments below if you find these Steal the Style posts useful. Happy friday everyone!! xx, Rita.
Rainy days might be a synonym of puffy hair, possible wet clothes and shoes, and we can’t forget about the horrible colds. Whenever it rains we just want to stay home, but if you have to go out, any outfit might turn out to be a mess since we just throw on layers of clothes to make sure we don’t get wet.
Thankfully, there are lots of items we now can pick to make a blah rainy outfit into an amazing one regardless of the strong rains. I chose 4 essential items that I believe can help you survive the rain with style: an umbrella (obviously!), raining boots, a raincoat, and a hat. The options are endless when it comes to wearing them so I gathered some of my favorite looks with these 4 items so you can get some inspiration for giving a boost to your rainy day outfit.
And since New York Fashion Week is happening right now, I created four looks inspired by the street style outfits we’ve been seen outside the runways adding the 4 go-to raining items in a fashionable way. I hope you enjoy the post and let me know in the comments below which outfit is your favorite! Happy beginning of week everyone!

For some, school or college is starting so I thought it would be a good idea to show some outfit ideas to start your school year with the right foot ;) A new school year always got me exited; seeing my friends again, having new classes and teachers, and also knowing that I was a year closer to graduation hahaha. Even though I had to wear a uniform, I always got happy for a new school year.
Now that I’m in college, I get to have the freedom to dress the way I want to which I didn’t had in school. Above everything, my college style is comfy but still trendy. Im aware of the fact that I go to a fashion school, but that doesn’t mean I have to wear a ball gown to my 8:45 am art history class! Sometimes, I put more effort on my outfits because I love trying new things when it comes to fashion.
I completely understand that not every day we have the time/desire to think about clothes because we have a lot on our mind (exam season, anyone?), but wearing something put together definitely makes me feel more confident and it gives me an extra boost to hold a 3 hour class. Plus, if you want to grab a coffee with you friends after classes, you won’t have to change or even saying no because you’re almost wearing your pajamas ;)
So wether you’re starting school or you’re still in it, keep scrolling down to check out some of my School/College outfits to take some inspiration from! I also posted the links of all of the items I used to create the outfits so be sure to check them out if you like anything ;)

A very special accessory that was shown in pretty much all of the fall winter 2013 runways was the nail art. For this season, nails became a huge attention grabber. The hand-painted designs and different mixtures of color, shape and texture were living proof that not only jewelry can decorate your hands.
The color palette was infinite but the ones that were seen the most were burgundy, cream, black, green (since it was named the color of the year by Pantone), grey and gold. Designers played with the textures by using matte colors or intricate details like studs, lace and pearls. So if you want an easy way to improve your winter style, grab your favorite nail polish and copy one of the outfits I created with similar nail polishes I found on the web that match some nail styles of the fw 13 runways! Let me know in the comments below which style was your favorite :)
Nail Polish: Cuppa by Butter London
Nail Polishes: Gris Angora by Lancome & Golden Goddess by Elf
Nail Polish: Dress Up by TOPSHOP Matte Nails
Nail Polish: For The Twill of It by ESSIE
Nail Polish: Caught With my Khakis Down by Sephora by O.P.I

Black and white are the two colors that will always be in our closets no matter if you are 18 or 40. From the never out-of-style little black dress to the classic white trousers, black and white have been and will always be THE colors to an ageless fashionista. Knowing that the two-toned trend will never fade (believe me, it wont!), sometimes we begin to think that there’s just that much we can do with them until we get bored.
Don’t get me wrong, I love the trend. You can never go wrong with these two colors, they make you look chic and you can wear them from day to night. So if you feel like you have some trouble when it comes to wearing black and white, keep scrolling down because I gathered several black and white outfits worn by fashionistas with different styles so each and every one of you can find outfits that will suit you best! I also created an inspired outfit that I thought these five different fashionistas would wear. I put a lot of effort to this post since I wanted to show how to wear this trend to not just 1, but 5 different girls.
Hope you enjoy this post and I hope you have a great beginning of week!

Hello everyone :) Hope you’re having a great weekend! Today, I decided to talk about one of my favorite fashion icons: Diane Kruger. She’s a German actress and former fashion model know for her roles in Troy, National Treasure and Inglorious Bastards. She’s also known in the fashion world because of her amazing style; she’s a personal friend of Karl Lagerfeld, Alexa Chung and other fashion celebrities.
Her style is bold but classic at the same time, she has no fear when it comes to fashion. She mixes prints and wears bold pieces but she does it in such a confident way that everything looks good on her. Wether she’s on the red carpet or going shopping, her fashion choices will never stop to impress me.
Her street style is casual and comfy. She mixes everyday pieces with some high brand accessories to polish the whole outfit. Here are some of my favorite:
Her red carpet style is where she really makes fierce fashion choices. She’s not afraid of wearing bold pieces, mixing prints and colors, sheer dresses, cropped tops, leather, etc. She also knows which clothes adapt the best to her body. Here are some of my favorite:
If you want to steal her style, I created two outfits inspired by her. The pieces are similar to what she wore and they’re also more affordable. (I’ll also post the links of them below).
Street style look:
Boyfriend jeans: Newlook
Bag: out of stock :(
Flats: Nasty Gal
Red Carpet Look:
Hope you enjoyed this post and let me know what you think of her style in the comments below! Have a great day everyone. xx Rita.
