Be a D&G Girl: Confident Femininity

As today, on 28th of February Italian high-end fashion designers Domenico Dolce and his partner Stefano Gabbana present their Fall/Winter 2016 collection in Milan, it is worth having a sneak peak into what the D&G girl will look like this year.

The couples recent collection Fall Winter 2016 has been named to be a “Fairytale collection” – standout pieces creating ladylike silhouettes, stitched with chandelier and golden clocks, teacups and mirrors. Dresses featured fairytale-like embellishments and beads as well as light, nearly transparent and airy laces. The fairytale theme was not kept under wraps – the runway set included a number of references to Cinderella, Snow White and Sleeping Beauty. Flowers, feminine laces and pleats, tasteful glossy embellishments and fruity colors – that’s what the “2016 D&G girl” will look after, when revising her wardrobe for the next big fairytale show.

Summer

During the Summer 2016 fashion show Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana presented a number of Ready-to-Wear feminine pieces inspired by contemporary pop culture. Contrary to fall/winter looks, summer D&G girl will choose comfortable, simple pieces that will lead her to new adventures. Fruity colours, flirty bright pleats and brave combinations are the right choices for summer for a busy, life-loving, energetic woman who chooses clothing to reflect her personality.

For the summer 2016, Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana suggest to stick to romantic looks. To support the natural and fresh looks designers suggest choosing slightly winged eyeliner, fresh, nourished and glowing skin and pinkish lip tones. The hairstyles, such as ballerina style buns with flyaway strands around the face, can be accessorized with scarves, flowers and jeweled accessories. Comparing summer and fall looks, it is apparent that D&G girl in summer will choose slightly simplier looks and will put more effort in makeup and hair compared to the fall/winter looks.

Fall/Winter

The garments created by the couple usually portray wildly feminine look and reflect the natural, poetic beauty of couples native Italy, where both designers live and work. During this Fall/Winter fashion show designers seem to have reflected the elegant, slightly unrealistic feminine beauty that a number of women dream of since the childhood by portraying fairytale accents in Ready-to-Wear garments. The essence of D&G girl in fall 2016 will summon a spirit of confident, powerful, strong and feminine female – sun-kissed, feminine and confident (is it surprising yet that Sia’s stong “Unstoppable” was played during the show?).

Contrary to the summer looks, hair and makeup of the fall/winter D&G girl will be centered on simplicity. Fresh-faced feminine looks with little to no make up at all matched with simplistic hairstyles, such as romantic messy buns decorated with headbands and embellished hair accessories. The main accent of the D&G girl during the fall and winter will be fresh, nourished, dazzling and healthy skin and tasteful glossy accessories.

Sweet & Sour Autumn in Aarhus

Autumn might be recognized by whole scale of different features including sunny afternoons that highlight all those warm and cheerful colors on trees, but also melancholic dark-shaded grey skies and uncomfortable rainy days.   In either case, ladies and gentlemen on the streets do not hesitate to use their imagination on the maximum and put some of art into their autumn street fashion. Walking through the city of Aarhus during a common busy sunny day provides many examples of how much variety there is in individuals´ minds that they all use to stand out of the crowd.

  • A must-have for this time of the year is undoubtedly scarves. Be careful with the choice thought, because now it might be relevant to say: the bigger the better.

Scarve for autumn

  • Put some color on! Or in other words, switching those same-old faded tights for colorful ones might be a fresh and comfortable change which at least adds up some color to your day.

Blue tights

Animal lovers versus fur lovers. This conflict might occur when it comes to the never ending story of the fur. Coats, hoodies, jackets… it does not get old, fashion dictates clearly what is in and what is not.

Speak up! It may be an universal rule or just a reflection of human insecurity that each individual wants to stand out and be somehow different from the rest.. fantasy and imagination have no boundaries in this case and season not only changes colors on the trees, but also brings new ideas about color styles of hair – put orange to match the autumn atmosphere, choose blue if you prefer rebellion or bring it up with strong red to stay classy and grown-up, in case of a pure soul of course blonde always counts.

Fiery colors

Hats, caps, veils, kerchiefs, new-eras, and any head covers are allowed for season and no matter if girls or boys, ladies or gentlemen because everyone can find a perfect one to match any outfit.

Danes like simplicity and comfort. This season, as we can see from the people around us, the situation doesn’t change radically – comfy shoes and sneakers are still preferred by the great majority. Danes definitely like footwear that they could wear every day, no matter what the weather is.

Oversized fashion is said to have become popular around ’20ies, and styles have varied from century to century. The end of fall in Scandinavia definitely has lots to offer, and it seems that Danish girls (and boys) like modern oversized, a little bit masculine pieces.

Get a Unique Style While Helping The Ones In Need!

I met Melissa this Sunday at Aarhus Sustainability Festival, in Godsbanen. Her simple, clean-cut clothes were perfectly matching with her quite classy attitude. Melissa is 20, comes from France and prefers to shop in second-hand and charity shops. “I used to shop in such clothing stores as H&M and Zara, but now I mostly shop at second-hand stores. This way, you can be sure you will not meet other people with the same clothes as you on the street”.

A Colourful Dress For A Sunny Day!

Line (34) is a Danish artist whom I met at Kunsthal Aarhus at the opening of the new Spring Exhibition. As she was very happy for a new sunny day at her favourite museum in town, she decided to wear this very colourful dress that, I can say, was perfectly matching her hair (that, by the way, is cut and dyed by herself).  Line is quite courageous in the way she dresses, and she prefers finding cheap treasures at second-hand stores. She actually seems talented at finding good clothes anywhere, even in supermarkets, or just regular stores like H&M, Vero Moda or Fransa.

Nordic Style At Its Best: Casual Style With Elegant Elements

Kristina is a 24 year-old beautiful Danish girl, whom I met the day before yesterday just in front of Magasin. She dresses from a variety of brands, but she mainly prefers Topshop, H&M and Weekday. She seemed to me a perfect example of mixing a simple, casual style with elegant elements. Nevertheless, her natural and feminine attitude made her look complete.
