World Wednesday – Streets of Tokyo

This November, we are bringing our fans to the streets of Tokyo where the styling philosophy is all about the fun and the creative.  At the same time, we will reveal tips on how to mix some versatile accessories from Le Chic in these looks.

Street Styles in Tokyo has a very unique language about embracing individuality. Tokyo girls love to match new clothes with vintage hunts and there are always loads of expressive details in their outfits with one-of-a-kind accessories like the asymmetric leggings and the platform mules.

Below are a couple snapshots in which the girls mix poppy red with beige. We found it quite impressive how they blend all the bold prints together. To get the look,  you can try putting on a bright colored scarf with a neutral one-piece and finish off with a pair of statement leggings. Or, you can indulge your love for vintage prints on both your dress and your cape! Our beaded tribal necklace would be an ideal touch-up here that you can wear with the beige dresses.

Tip Tuesday – Cozy Knitwears

In November, as the temperature gets crisper and the season merges from fall to winter, an array of cardigans, ponchos, turtlenecks, and more is in order. At Le Chic, it is easy for our fans to find these items featured in Nathalie Kraynina’s Fall/Winter 2013 Collection. This Tip Tuesday we are going to share hints about how to show off your style against the cold.

Below is an effortlessly chic style inspired by Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. To get this look, we would suggest wearing Nathalie’s Chan Chan Sweater with a pair of black leather leggings and nude Gia ballet flats that speak to the tone of the sweater. You can keep the jewelries simple with our Everlasting Love necklace and White Crystal Stretch Bracelet while putting on a well-crafted felt hat to make the statement.

Another item that we have spotted in so many street styles is the long sleeve black sweater which you can also find in Nathalie’s Fall/Winter 2013 Collection. The Mystical Nazca Sweater with detachable hood allows you to wear it alone with the hood on or to move the hood and layer it on a shirt like the street style demonstrates below.  To add a little accent, we would finish this look with a pair of pointy toe booties and our Dainty Butterfly necklace.

World Wednesday – Streets of London

This World Wednesday we are taking you back to London as one of the origins of Punk subculture.  Advocated for its independent spirit, Punk has always been the source of inspiration for fashion designers like Vivienne Westwood who seeks to make a statement. Today we are going to show you some of the contemporary interpretations on the streets of London with a twist of Punk characters into everyday outfits.

Below is an example of a girl who translated the feminine side of Punk by combining an elegant black dress with a rock stud motorcycle jacket. Our black bronzed earrings and Terry ankle boots are ideal to complete this statement.

The key for the style here is really to express yourself and dare to mix it up.

To revitalize your versatile ripped jean shorts and basic tees from summer this fall, you can investigate a jacket with bold prints which would add that extra edge. Besides, you can never go wrong with a pair of black drench boots for this outfit. Last but not least, try on our black geometric bangle or our pewter mesh bracelet – it’s all about the detail.

Media Monday – Sandra Bullock’s New Film Gravity

If you had ever made a trip to the theater in the past few weeks you’d notice Gravity at the box office. With $31 million in ticket sales at North American theaters, Gravity had held the top spot for the third consecutive weekend as of Oct 21.

Audiences will be captivated by the fascinating recreation of outer-space environment as they get drawn into the theater for the reveal in the trailer. Yet the film doubles as a mediation on loss and is in fact so deeply emotional as indicated by the director Alfonso Cuarón, who succinctly describes Gravity as a film about “rebirth.”

The starring actress – Sandra Bullock – is again riding high with Oscar Buzz for her performance. But her powerful appeal resides in that quality so rare in Hollywood: ‘relatability’ – you see her like one of your old friends from school, or a cool girl you would meet in the café.

We appreciate her styles for the person she is. Nevertheless, once she steps in the gown, she turns up the heat on the red carpet with distinctive glamour. Take a look at our periodical of Sandra Bullock’s best red carpet looks below and inspirational Le Chic accessories by her characteristic.
