During the recent fashion weeks, I have noticed that a lot of fashionistas are using their jackets as a cape, and it looks amazing. Looking through different streetstyle pics from the recent fashion weeks, women are skipping the sleeves of their jacket and letting the jacket drape on their shoulders. But notice that this trend can be a bit risky and in some cases not practical. Why? Well, it´s a challenge to made sure that the jacket stays on your shoulders. Any minute, you can drop the jacket on the ground.But don´it worry, here is some tips on how you can pull this trend of.
Shoulder Span: To make sure that the jacket stays on you shoulder, buy a jacket with a wide and well structured shoulder span. The shoulder span will make the jacket easier to stay on you shoulder.
Clutch it: if you want to pull this trend of, leave your tote bag at home and instead, bring your clutch. Remember that you´re not wearing the sleeves of your jacket, the strap of the tote bag will become a huge problem. For this trend, the accessories becomes very important!
Proportions: When wearing jacket as a cape, it can overwhelm your shape. To avoid this, wear a slim fitted style on the bottom and it will give you a clean line and proportion. The second layer (underneath the jacket) should be thick to avoid being cold, nobody looks cool when they´re cold.
So now, you have all the tolls and knowledge to pull this trend of
Lately I have started to appreciate hats and notice how chic hats really are. During Copenhagen Fashion Week, I had some time to kill and ofcourse I stroll around Copenhagen´s shopping streets. I manage to find a brown hat and from that on, I started to realize hats magic force! Hats looks great with almost all off my outfits, specially during this time of year when the sunshine sometimes peeking out from winter’s gray sky. My advice is to buy a hat asap and combine it with a minimalist and clean jacket.
Anna Dello Russo (ADR) describes herself as a “passionate fashionista” and that is the best way to describe one of worlds biggest and most well known woman in the fashion industry.

I´m a huge of Do- It- Yourself project and I found this great and easy tutorial at Honestly…WTF. What do you guys think? Cute right?
1. Cut the waxed linen cord into a 26″ and 19″ piece. Fold the longer strand in half. Align one end of the shorter strand with both ends of the longer strand. Fold the excess over the top of the folded piece creating two parallel loops.
2. Tie a knot about half an inch down from the loops. Snip off the extra fourth strand, leaving 3 equal strands of equal length.
3. Start braiding the strands. After about an inch or so, braid in the beads. Thread a bead onto the outer left strand.
4. Push the bead against the base of the braid, and cross the left strand over the middle. Now thread another bead onto the outer right strand. Push it to the base of the braid and crossover.
5. Keep a finger at the base of the braid, holding the beads in their place and keeping the braid tight. Continue threading on beads before each strand is crossed over.
6. Finish the bracelet with another inch of braided cord, measuring it against the wrist. Tie a knot.
7. Thread on a two hole button – two strands through one hole and one strand through another. Secure it with another knot.
8. Trim the end.
STEP 9- FINISH
9. Your bracelet is finished! Try using different colored waxed linen and beads.
