As some of you have seen on my Facebook page, I was helping my friend Carolina Caruso in styling her fashion shoot (check out her blog for the full sneak peek!). The clothes and accessories were kindly provided by FinforWorld, a new fashion initiative aiming to support emerging designers around the globe.
One of the looks was a classic nautical look that you could wear to any day or night time event by the water: A crisp white top, statement pants with anchor print, silver wedges and a clutch (in snake print, just to say you are actually a city girl!).
While the look was just perfect for the shooting location, I was wondering what else you could do with those anchor print pants in every day life, assuming that most of us do not own a boat and are not members of a yacht club… unfortunately.
Admittedly, denim overalls are incredibly comfortable to wear and very practical. I used to live in one. However, that was back in the ’90s and I was in my early teenage years.
I tossed my old overall before going to college, but when I recently spotted this girl above sitting on the Polyterrasse in Zurich, I did have some second thoughts whether to get a new one or not. After some serious deliberation, I have decided that I will pass on this trend. But in case you want to give it a try, here are some styling tips on How To Wear A Denim Overall (and look as cool as Alexa).

It seems you really shouldn’t complain too much with Mother Nature. Or she’ll hit you right in your face with a nasty heat wave! I have to admit, I have been moaning for weeks or even months about the cold weather, making fun of global warming (…global WHAT?) and now I am sitting here at my desk thinking air-conditioning should become a standard in European homes as it already is for homes in Asia.
Despite the oven-like environment I did dare to go out and see what’s up on the streets of Zurich. Not surprised people are running around with lots of bare skin, but in particular I liked the outfit of this girl, wearing trendy tribal shorts, a plain top, a classic quilted bag (could it be Chanel?) and cute plastic shoes.
