How to Wear a Jumper This Season

There is a clothing piece that cannot be missed in your wardrobe this season. Do you know which one am I referring to? Yes, the jumper.

During the last couple of years, jumpers have become a fashion statement. They are classy, fashionable and easy to wear. And now with the sweaters dress trend, they are more IN than ever. This autumn we can see cozy sweaters, long jumpers, voluminous dresses, and sometimes everything at once. The palette of colors that predominate are navy blue, gray, violet, brown, orange, and black. And let’s not forget about prints! For those of you who are afraid to combine too many colors, prints are the solution. They allow you to wear several colors in one clothing piece.

Let’s see how to wear a jumper this season!

Since monochromatic and minimalist are a powerful trend today, I decided to keep it simple but still making a style impact. The principal clothing piece is made of wool and looks like an over-sized gray sweater that resulted in a jumper with two huge pockets on the front. It has a wide slit in the laterals, so I took a fashion risk and wore a lingerie bra underneath. I could have easily worn a white t-shirt or bodysuit, but since the jumper was so old-school, I decided to use something different in order to escape from that look and make it more trendy.

To match the lingerie bra, I wore a black lingerie choker. Chokers make us look slimmer, more stylized. That’s why I think is a great addition to this fall outfit.

For the final touch, I chose a type of black leather loafers. These shoes are avant-garde and really trendy right now. I believe they go perfect together because they have the same vintage vibe. I like to use this outfit to go to dinner with my friends, or to the mall, or even to have a couple of drinks during happy hour. It’s versatile, fashionable and comfy.

Wearing a jumper is pretty simple. They basically do all the job for us. But if you would like to make a fashion statement, then you need to think out of the box and add accessories, eccentric shoes, or belts. Wear them like you own them.

The Top Fall Fashion Trends You Need To Know About

When it comes to fall style, there aren’t off-limits trends. We all have our personal style and our comfort zone. However, this fall we should all go a little further and take some fashion risks! Trust me, it’s worth it.

During the fall runways, tons of metallic pieces, over-sized jackets, florals, velvet, and suits were presented. So many trends, so many propositions. Sometimes is difficult to know how to wear velvet jackets or how to incorporate menswear, AKA suits, into our lives.

This outfit is inspired in most of these trends. The protagonists here are the florals and the velvet jacket. Velvet is about elegance and comfort. Slim-fit velvet jackets are my favorite. However, you can wear this fabric in everything! Pants, skirts, shoes. The sky is the limit. Just remember to wear just one velvet piece per look. Otherwise, it would be too much.

To complement the jacket, I decided to wear a turtleneck basic in a cream tone. It’s neutral and gives the outfit a splendid touch. What I love the most about turtlenecks is that I can wear them with chokers or necklaces to enhance the neckline. A little tip: chokers and necklaces will make you look slimmer and taller. If you are not sure to go with a turtleneck, you can easily wear another basic.
The skirt is all about florals in navy blue and beige, which makes a great contrast with the top of the outfit. This fall, there are tons of layers and volume, and this skirt encompasses all! When wearing florals, make sure to avoid overwhelming pieces and complement the fabric with basics or neutrals.
Both florals and velvet have their own strength, and it’s important to keep it simple. Like I’ve said before, sometimes less is more.
And of course, the leather boots could not be missed. These boots make the outfit complete giving it that final fall touch.
What do you think? Would you take the risk and incorporate these fall trends?

Fall Means New Skincare Routine

Fall is around the corner, which means that soon we will see the trees changing their foliage resulting in warm tones that take over the city. Sudden, fall means new skincare routine. Why? Because the weather changes and the temperature drops. Now, our skin is more likely to get dry and peel.

This is why I wanted to share with you my new skincare routine. A few weeks ago, a skincare line called Lumion caught my attention. I researched the ingredients, checked the reviews and testimonials of people who have used it and finally decided to try it.

I have a combination of oily and dry type of skin, so for me it’s hard to find a product that hydrates my skin without leaving a greasy feeling on my face. But Lumion is capable of cleaning and hydrating my face at the same time. And the reason why is because of its components.

Lumion’s products only use three ingredients: electrolyzed oxygenated water, sodium chloride, and hypochlorous acid. You may be wondering how am I talking about hydration if Lumion’s main component is water? Well, there is a secret that the electrolyzed oxygenated water entails. It delivers oxygen to the skin  increasing hydration! And the remaining two ingredients are antibacterial, which means that they protect the skin against environmental contaminants.

My Fall Skincare Routine

First, we need to clean our face. I use a detoxifying cleanser from Boscia. This is a warm gel cleanser that dissolves impurities and refines the skin texture. The cleanser is like a mask: creamy and thick. It does not irritate nor dry the skin. I really recommend it.

Then, the next step is applying the Lumion Serum. I splash two pumps on my hand and apply it to my face and neck. This serum increases balance and moisture my skin. The final touch is the Lumion mist. I just close my eyes and splash the mist all over my face. I use this product several times during the day: after exercising, to seal my makeup and in the morning.

This to-go mist is also perfect for airplanes. We all know that when we are in an airplane it is not recommended to wear makeup because of the environmental conditions. But this Lumion product helps the skin to remain clean and sooth thanks to the hypochlorous acid. Definitely is a must in our purse!

The reason why I love these products is because they are really natural and don’t irritate my skin. When I apply a cream or serum on my skin, I am really careful with the ingredients. If you don’t know the ingredients or if you cannot even pronounce the word, it is worthwhile to do a little research.

These products are budget friendly and can be found online. I bought my cleanser in Sephora and the Lumion’s products in the brand’s website.

Let me know if you have any questions regarding the routine or the products. I would be more than happy to help you! This space is both yours and mine!
