“Fashion is what you’re offered four times a year, style is what you pick out of that fashion…It’s what you make of it once you’ve learned what to accept and what to ignore based on what looks good on you.”
Style is a way to say who you are without having to speak – Rachel Zoe
“Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.” – Coco Chanel
I really like those type of outfits that look so funky and are in fact super easy to pull off. Tally Weijl is one of those brands that has been getting more popular in my fashion rankings due to those super easy, funky, and trendy looks they put together. I will demonstrate a few looks to give you some insight, but keep in mind, Tally Weijl is just an example, these looks can be pulled off using pieces you probably already have in your closet!
It really only takes some inspiration / tips / visual aid to be able to put together something you have been looking at either at your favorite mall, pinterest followers, co worker (you get my point) and wishing you could pull off. Well good news is, YOU ABSOLUTELY CAN!
This outfit is cute, fresh, and features pieces that are all very trendy. Take a look at what this look features.
The skirt’s layers and lace details makes it a must have this season, and I think we all have at least ONE printed T-shirt and a look alike bag that we could grab out of our closets. The pumps could vary according to style, and the socks are a funky add to this look.
This is a casual chic look with a funky fresh pastel inserts. What I like about this look is that you could customize the colors to go with whatever it is you have in your closet. The blazer could be just about any color (If you decide to go with brights you might need to tone down the bag). You could even switch the white and nude between the pants and the blazer as you like best.
This outfit ticks all the right boxes for me. I absolutely love the short skirt topped with a printed shirt, gives it a sexy yet classy feel. I would actually wear this for a girls night out! The short skirt gives a night time vibe but, the colors give a fresh and young touch, and the topped printed shirt inserts some sporty elegance, while the Nude bag keeps the look toned down. Again, we all have at least ONE mini skirt that we like to flaunt every now and then (waxing, here i come), throw on a printed shirt (we all know how trendy prints are at the moment), and a must have is a nude bag that you can add to this look (well you can add nudes to just about any look – magic!).
The reason I like this is 1) I love the tribal prints’ trend at the moment 2) It really can work for many body shapes and also different ages. I can see myself loving this and I can also see my Mom (also a big fashion freak) looking great in it as well. The pants, have been a must have for more than a season and continue being just as trendy, the nude bag is something we all have somewhere in our closet (take it out!), I personally was not too fond of the wedges in this look but would definitely put on color-block wedges or even plain ones for this outfit.
Below are the pieces used in all these looks, in case you want details of each look. Lets keep it fresh and funky this spring / summer. Dressing yourself new can really make or break your day sometimes.

“Maybe we should develop a Crayola bomb as our next secret weapon. A happiness weapon. A beauty bomb. And every time a crisis developed, we would launch one. It would explode high in the air – explode softly – and send thousands, millions, of little parachutes into the air. Floating down to earth – boxes of Crayolas. And we wouldn’t go cheap, either – not little boxes of eight. Boxes of sixty-four, with the sharpener built right in. With silver and gold and copper, magenta and peach and lime, amber and umber and all the rest. And people would smile and get a little funny look on their faces and cover the world with their imagination.”
