The accessory we all Envy….

While Keeping up with Kendall Jenner…we noticed she has been wearing this amazing MUST HAVE ITEM……okay maybe its more of a want than a need,but do you blame us???

B-Low-Belt-Bri-Bri-Belt-148

That black double buckle belt  just adds something extra, to give your outfit that statement it needs. Dating back to Coachella when Kendall first wore it. She has been rocking the monochrome trend & the gold detail on the belt just makes it look even more chic.

But shes not the only one….

Who wore it better? Kendall or Selena?

MinimalismforBreakfast is obsessed with this accessory, quite frankly we will be running to the shop right after this post.

 

We thought we’d share some of our favorite “belt” moments to give you that bit of styling inspiration when purchasing your own.

The “Power” Suit…

The power suit is a vital component of any man or woman’s wardrobe regardless of his/her profession. When i get dressed in my beautiful structured office wear i feel more at ease with myself….like i’ll be able to handle anything thrown my way. It gives you that extra boost of confidence.

It all started in 1920’s with a beautiful woman called Coco Chanel. Back in those days she kept it simple but so very chic…by pairing her power suit with a long string of pearls.

original_simplicity-coco-chanel-quote (1)

The rules around the Power Suit has changed quite a lot throughout the years. It’s not primarily about matching anymore.Bring in some colors or patterns, but essential to that is not overdressing.Its always important to know your audience,whether you will be appearing in court or a meeting at a well known fashion house.

When I think Power Suit, my mind immediately wonders off to that matching structured black blazer & Tailored Trouser. These days you get the pencil skirt,midi knee length & floor length.Blazers in different colors & those amazing heels to bring the entire look together.

I say experiment with your power suit , bring in different textures,keep it simple & elegant but  always make a statement.

That POLO Neck…..

I remember when i was little my wardrobe consisted out of 10 different color Polo Neck Sweaters…..looking at that photos i ask myself & my mother why oh why….( luckily i can use my age as an excuse )

Today the POLO Neck,Turtle Neck or Skivvy whatever you would like to call it…is a definite go to style item.

1fbb07c6aff747e01e805d5419066dbb1. Style it with that perfect pair of high rise jeans add a classic black or tan belt to give it that edge.

2. Add that perfect coat or trench to pull off that super chic winter look.

3. Throw it back to that vintage Polo Neck style, by adding a suede mini skirt to the mix.

4. Luckily for us the over sized knit is quite on trend at the moment, style it with a basic leggings, jeans or midi skirt. So comfortable & easy to pull off & that basic black boots makes an powerful statement.

5. All one Color:  #allblackeverything #allwhiteeverything the list goes on ,  I’m obsessed. This is the ultimate definition of simplicity.

6. I’ve heard people say , they feel the Polo Neck makes them look quite “MANLY”… we say just  add that beautiful minimalist jewelry , simple as that.

7. This one is on top of my to do list.Wear that Boyfriend collar shirt over the Polo Neck.

Even better when that polo neck is adding a pop of color .

No more nightmares about that childhood memories I have about the Polo Neck. Keeping it stylish is the aim of the game.

10 facts

about

Janmaré Groenewald

10009815_10203611237264573_3189013055966502826_n

She is an aspiring journalist for fashion, lifestyle and beauty magazines.

She is also an aspiring writer. Looking to find the perfect genre. That’s a mission in itself.

She has an addiction to nail polish.” I just can’t live with naked nails and need that splash of color in my life.”

She would become a professional shopper if she could. Shopping is life. Melodramatic. But true.

“If I can go and live in New York, then I have actually lived.” Goals since she was a little girl.

Her fashion and beauty role models are Chelsea le Roux and Ruby Tuesday Matthews.

She has an obsession with perfume.

“I’m in love with the half bun style.”

She can’t decide whether she wants to be blonde or brunette. Or both. ” I’m always playing with my hair color.”

Lipstick always make her feel better. About anything. And everything

go “ALL” out….

Our latest obsession has to be that one color look….

White, Black , Tan & Grey in head to toe. These looks are super chic and quite easy to pull off.Where different textures to give your outfit that edge that all of us ladies seek.

Add a touch of color by adding gold jewelry,that red lipstick or a bright color heel/sneaker.
