OUTFIT


IT’S TIME TO GET YOUR LAYERS ONE

Chanel Cruise Cuba collection Charlotte Groeneveld Thefashionguitar

On days like these, when the outside temperature feels like what my iPhone tells me -20 degrees Celsius, there’s nothing else we can do than stay inside, and imagine ourselves in more favorable temperatures. If it were only a few degrees above zero, I would imagine myself going out in this sunny Chanel Cruise Cuba collection outfit for brunch. Of course with an appropriate coat one top – I’m still eyeing the Balenciaga puffer and waiting anxiously for it to go on sale… which probably won’t happen anywhere near where I live. I’m drifting off, what I really wanted to say is that when it is cold…

THESE YOU WANT IN YOUR WARDROBE, RIGHT NOW

ASKA boots Charlotte Groeneveld Thefashionguitar

What once started as a 60s inspired glitter ankle boot, followed by Courreges in the digital-era, the reinvented metallic Gucci loafer – with block heel – we all wanted in our wardrobes, now has formed a cult of fashion forward women who are not afraid to make a statement. A statement with their shoes. These women are easy to identify: They love to wear the ultimate casual outfit – think; a pair of jeans, a navy cashmere sweater, or the good old white shirt – but then turn everything around by the pair of shoes they are wearing with it. It makes them unique, and one of a kind – something we all should try in an era where digital media often tells us what we should be wearing…

HOLIDAY FEELINGS

Dolce & Gabbana Christmas Charlotte Groeneveld Thefashionguitar

What I love most about the Holidays is spending time with my family, eating all the food I love, drinking my favorite Champagne, and watch every single Christmas movie, until I fall asleep on the couch. Luckily I found a man who loves to do the same, so every year our planning is pretty straight forward. We do the above mentioned, we both do our part – he does the grocery shopping, I do the gift shopping – and then we start. For the first couple of years in our relationship, when we lived in The Netherlands – where we both grew up – we spend these days with our families on both sides. However, this changed when we moved abroad. For the better – for a while – and the worse…

WINTER SHEER

Valentino FW 16/17 Thefashionguitar Charlotte Groeneveld

Recently a major print publication asked me to shoot a street-style look wearing something sheer… First thoughts were excitement, second a little less happy… How was I going to wear “sheer in winter?” Winters here are ice-cold, and even without those being in full swing yet, it simply felt impossible to go outside wearing sheer, or lace, or anything that falls into that category. So question remained, how was I going to make this work without risking being frozen?

CHANEL CRUISE VIBES

Chanel Cruise Cuba Charlotte Groeneveld Thefashionguitar

With loving the Chanel Cruise Cuba collection, two little problems arise. First one is “How to wear the Cuba Cruise collection in winter”? The solution is easy though, just replace a few of the thinner pieces – like the beautiful silk shirt that came with the look – for a simple cotton turtleneck, add some “invisible” layers underneath, and you are ready to go. Truly, this look worked fine on a “relatively” warm winter day, as I managed to not freeze anywhere, but my nose. But there’s another problem…
