The best Ecofriendly jeansbrands

Name somebody who does not like jeans, exactly we are all jeansheads, but jeans is so bad for our environment. To produce one pair of jeans most factories use 10 000 liters of water, one pair of jeans travels 23 000 km before being in your wardrobe. You already get the picture. Well I wanted to inform you on the best choices you can make. First of all it does not need to be expensive so here are the best budgetproof, ecofriendly jeans-brands!

Best ecofriendly jeans Nudie

Depending on your budget Nudie jeans is a great option. A pair of jeans is around €80 up to €150, that last one is the same as a Diesel-jeans but less bad for the world. Nudie jeans is the only brand that scores an A from Rank a Brand. Rank A Brand is a dutchwebsite that rates brands on their ecological footprint. Click here to open the website.

The dress of this season is called The Delphine Drape

Well, after wearing dresses more often and being invited to a special occassion I started to search for the perfect dress. My perfect dress needs be casual, yet chique, stylish, yet fashionable and if possible a bit sporty and a bit bohemian. The demands are high, the funfact I found the ideal dress actually in 2 weeks!

The Delphine Drape by French Connection

This pretty dress comes in 2 colors, rusty red and dark blue. And the rusty color might pop out more, I do think the blue one is a safer option. More easy to style and combine. The Delphine Drape is long, making it boho and chique. But thanks the options are endless. Wear this dress with heels or sneakers depending on your mood. I prefer sneakers, making the look less chique and more casual.

The Delphine dress as a shirt

The imagine that convinced me came from the instagrampage of French Connection. The dress was worn as a shirt. I loved it! This has not popped up in my head yet and I was already thinking about the options! I can wear my dress to more occassions " once as a dress, the other time as a shirt". Streetstyle credibility: check!

The following picture is from the french connection website. Here you can order the dress, and discover so much more pretty clothes!

Just click Here!

Why should you invest in the Delphine dress

This dress can be worn on 2 ways, making it an amazing investment piece. Next you can wear it for multiple occassions, go for streetlook with sneakers or work with heels and look amazing! If you are just as short as me, this dress has the perfect length. No need to make it shorter. The split makes it easy to move, ideal for a night out! This dress should be in your suitcase for every citytrip.

Not convinced about the long dress? This print is also available in an A-line dress that fits every bodytype. Honestly, I fell in love from the moment I saw it in stores. Can't wait to show it to you guys later this month🙈!

Heatwave – wear

Hi Guys, since a few days the weather hits over 30 degrees, sounds like real fun yes? Well actually it also means sleepless nights, mosquitoes and not feeling comfortable in anything you wear. Well I can not cure a sleepless night but I wanted to give you some details in how to be fashionable during the heatwave. In today’s post you will discover the best heatwave-wear.

Heatwave-wear for everyday

As a fan of shirt and maxi dresses you can immediately imagine what you will see pop up. I am a huge fan of both because they are so easy to wear. Maxi dresses are chique and you will just look more glamorous without trying. Combine the dress with flats. They are so much more pleasant to wear in hot weather. One of my favorite shirt dresses has to be this one from French Connection. They are really a brand that has a lot of awesome shirt dresses. And if in doubt, I always go for this one.

How I wear it

I combined it with a classic slip on. Ideal to go on a citytrip, or to a bar. I would even say this dress is office-proof.

Then you have the maxi dress. I have 2 a more casual one and a more chique one. The casual one is a striped dress from Co Couture. The more chique one is again from French Connection.  When you do think a maxi dress is too much, ignore that feeling. If you go for a neutral color or stripes it is never overdressed. A maxi dress is ideal to hide your legs. Yes this is the reason I love them so. Think you are too short? Skip that feeling immediately. I am only 162cm and I rock them each summer.

How I wear it

This Co Couture dress is ideal for a family visit, restaurant visit, day in the city. Easy to combine with slip ons, sneakers or a sandal. Oh yes you could go for heels, but you know that’s not my thing.

The next one has to be the best piece in my dressing it’s the French Connection dress. It was a more expensive purchase but the best one ever. I do wear it for weddings, dinners, just strolling around. When my body-image needs a boost…. this one saves the day.

What about jumpsuits?

I actually own one. I wear it sometimes, but it’s not my favorite thing. It’s not easy to wear. Honestly when it’s hot and you have to go to the bathroom you have to undress completely. You know what it’s ideal for, bikeriding. Or when you have to go somewhere you know you will not pee. Ok, point taken.  The short version? Always difficult, it’s about how confident you are in your skin. I am not a fan of shorts, I do believe they only look good on Gigi or Moss. Just my point of view guys! Don’t take it too hard :).

Heatwave-wear office proof

For this part I had to go search on “pinterest” for pictures. I always go for loose pants whenever the weather is over 25°C. Skinny jeans is not your friend on hot days. If you wan to go for a dress make sure your not overdoing it. It’s work, not a restaurant visit or a day in the city.  A dress too short might not be appreciated.

A loose pants combined with a tucked in shirt is ideal. It really looks amazing. Look at these pictures. Go for light colors like white, grey, beige. Or pastels, now is the moment to wear them.

You really have to search for the best fabrics that breath. Think cotton, tencel blend, linen and light wool. Go for a loose fit, ideal is that you even have room underneath your arms.  I have a few linen shirts from Zoe Karssen and they are a blessing on days like this. I am still looking for the perfect heatwave proof pants.

If the office has an airco, wear a scarf or cardigan that you can take off when you leave. Drink a hot beverage as it will cool down your body after. Wash your wrists with cold water on the toilets.

And what do you think of these heatwave-wear options? Like them? Have fun searching for your perfect wear guys!

Skirt and shirt
I love love love long skirts! I do not wear skirts often but I do love how a long skirt looks on every woman! Yes because no matter your bodytype a long skirt is always a big yes.

Vans are back and here to stay! Combine them with skinny jeans and band shirt and you are ready to rock a festival. An all black outfit is so amazing and simple at the same time.

Suits you
This twinset stole my heart. It looks boho chique. Yes this beats most MK Olsen looks! I think you can never have enough of these pants for summer. Loose, not too warm, office proof. Easy to combine with a simple white shirt or black (depending on the color of the pants). Combine the 2 pieces together for a nice event like a wedding and wear seperately for a dressed down look! Investing in a 2 piece is the best thing you can do! I bought it years ago from french connection and I still wear the pieces seperately.

Chanel Cruise 2018

Oh spring, time to look at Vogue and dream. Yes May is the time for the springcollections aka “cruise collection”. Just like each year I end up dreaming about Chanel on the Vogue website. Honestly I loved this years show and this is why…

Back to the past

The Cruise Collection from this year was presented in La Grand Palais in Paris. Normally the cruise collecions are always presented around the world. Remember the fuzz about Cuba last year. This year Chanel stays in Paris. For this collection Karl Lagerfeld went back to ancient Greece. Titled “The Modernity of Antiquity,” .

Goddesses

Gold accents, gladiator shoes, draping, off shoulder looks and a headband. These are the most important items of the looks. Back in these periods in history women were instroduced as godesses! What a great homage to us!

img_7244

My favorite look
I completely fell in love with the complete blue look. The golden chanel logo is so pretty, yet subtile. It looks amazing, is wearable and so pretty!

img_7242

That jacket
And altough the setting might change some items will always be classic. Like the signature tweed jacket. Also represent in this Cruise Collection.

img_7244-1

Facts: the entire grand palais was redecorated to look real ancient and Green.
None of his muses, lilly-rose, Gigi and others made it to the show… still recovering from the Met Gala. Shame on you muses!

So if you love to watch pictures of fashion shows, head over to the vogue website! You can watch all looks presented by each designer!

What was your favorite look of this show? Do you remember the iconic tshirt from last year from Cuba? I still adore it. It has “lifegoals” written all over it! Cruise collections are often more wearable and somewhat more “young” 💖.
