3 skirt outfits you’re gonna want to wear this spring

The beginning of spring is the perfect time to reinvent your wardrobe. After a long, cold winter, it’s time to shed the layers and bring out the colors! We believe these three outfits are not only chic and wearable, but they also show off your personality. We hope you find them inspiring!

Black and roll
This is not your regular “office” outfit, thought it may look like it at first. The white crop shirt is paired with a polka dot pencil skirt and Isabella Blue heels. The outfit gets an edge from the biker jacket combined with the statement coral necklace and exaggerated cat eye sunglasses. The shoes add a necessary pop of color and they do their job of making you feel fabulous.

This look is all about comfort and femininity. The 1960s mod combination of mini skirt, trench coat, loafers and crossbody bag becomes a little more sophisticated with the romantic embellished top. The color palette stays neutral, with just a couple of shades of pink that remind us of spring blooms. And isn’t the bee brooch the perfect accessory?

 

Slightly layered

An unexpected combination of casual and chic, this outfit pairs a printed pencil skirt with a silk tank top and a denim jacket. The Indian Summer sandals bring elegance to the look, as does the pink Chanel bag. Accessorized with a chunky bangle and cat eye sunglasses, this outfit is the definition of spring.

Which one would you wear?

Stylish Folks at Johannesburg Fashion Week

South Africa Fashion Week

A great edition of Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Johannesburg just wrapped up, and we were curious to get a glimpse behind the scenes. Obviously, that doesn’t only mean backstage of the shows, but also out there on the streets. We found some fabulous street style snaps on The Expressionist and some amazing backstage details on Elle South Africa, both of which managed to satisfy our curiosity. We think they might satisfy yours as well! With the weather is just starting to warm in Europe, these outfits are really inspiring for the upcoming season!

Dream scarves by Mansi Shah

Mansi Shah scarves | Mo-saiqueThe thing with scarves is that they have so many uses. One moment they’re protecting your updo against the wind, the next they’re wrapped around your hips as a cover-up, and then there they are again on your shoulders, like a cape. But besides obvious functionality, scarves are what we’d call pure beauty.

Mansi Shah scarves are the perfect example of utility meets aesthetic. The New York-based studio creates signature prints inspired by the alchemy of image-making, and they digitally print them on scarves (as well as caps or phone cases). We love how the pieces are showcased in the pictures, with the gorgeous model dressed minimally, and the golden crescent moon mani and scarves as the only pops of color.

The wonderful illustrations of Katie Rodgers

The wonderful illustrations of Katie Rodgers  | Mo-saique
Katie Rodgers (aka Paper Fashion) started out small: in a country town in America, with a set of watercolors she received from her aunt. She started blogging in 2009, and she’s quickly become everyone’s favorite fashion illustrator. She’s worked with all the major brands: Valentino, Cartier, Kate Spade, Coach, Stuart Weitzman, as well as with important publications such as Elle and Glamour. But enough about her resume – have you seen these illustrations?

Her watercolors are princess-worthy, depicting some of the most beautiful gowns and shoes that ever existed. She often mixes up media to spectacular results, with bobby pins, sequins and rhinestones being no strangers to her sketchbook. Her Instagram account is a dream, a fairy tale filled with dancer-shaped pancakes (!), illustrations in the making and unexpected canvases. We have to say, we wouldn’t mind her painting some Mo-Saique shoes!

10 best shoes from Fashion Week

With Fashion Month coming to an end, it’s time to look back through all the collections, from New York to Paris, and see what we can take from the whole experience. Obviously, we kept our eyes open for the shoes, and these are our favorite designs from the season:

Jason Wu Shoes FW15

1. Jason Wu. We love the increased stability of the V-shaped metallic heel, but also the clean, geometric cuts of the pump.

Rochas Shoes FW15

2. Rochas. The chunky heel of this gray pump is absolutely spectacular, in the same way that mine flowers are spectacular.

Dolce&Gabbana Shoes FW15

3. Dolce&Gabbana. These look as if Marie Antoinette herself traveled through time to design a pair of shoes for the Italian label.

Oscar de la Renta Shoes FW15

4. Oscar de la Renta. We’ve all seen embellished shoes before, but Oscar de la Renta managed to make them look fresh all over again.

Derek Lam Shoes FW15

5. Derek Lam. A bit of 1970s, a bit of contemporary aesthetic. A bit of a loafer, a bit of a mule. These patent shoes are it.

Proenza Schouler Shoes FW15

6. Proenza Schouler. A peep toe with twist after twist, starting with the unfinished fabric and ending with the rounded metallic heel.

Dries van Noten Shoes FW15

7. Dries van Noten. A great use of brocade and fringe, featuring cross straps and what looks like a really comfortable high heel.

Balmain Shoes FW15

8. Balmain. The classic stiletto is even more chic in soft pink and gold, with a tassel and thin ankle strap.

Donna Karan Shoes FW15

9. Donna Karan. We love the curved heel and platform, the straps crossing on the side of the foot, and the easy color combination of these sandals.

Balenciaga shoes FW 2015

10. Balenciaga. If you ever had trouble believing the Cinderella fairy tale… these pumps might change your mind.

Mo-saique shoes in Dreamingless Magazine

Dreamingless Magazine February 2015 Issue

This February, Dreamingless Magazine celebrated love with an entire issue dedicated to it. We were pleased to provide them with the perfect shoes to complement an all-pink photo shoot. Included were the Henri heels and Hakuun sandals, both in the romantic flamingo-pink shade. Our favorite look has to be the one on the cover, featuring a fabulous dusty pink coat over a silky blouse and lace-applique skirt, and pairing the Henri shoes with sheer pink socks. Don’t they look fantastic?

The London-based magazine is un-retouched, taking a stand against the shallow standards of the general fashion industry. That means no beauty or body Photoshop on any of the models. We were happy to contribute to their raw, realistic aesthetics and celebrate body positivity.

The February issue is still available for purchase here, and is currently on sale.
