4 Fashion Items you need to own

Top 4 fashion items you need to own

We’ve all had moments when we look into our wardrobes despairingly and can’t find anything to wear, despite having piles of t-shirts and reams of hangers draped with clothes.

Many of us make the mistake of buying items on a whim without bearing in mind their wear ability, or how they slot into the rest of our wardrobe – which is why it’s so important to invest in staple pieces that you can wear time and again. With that in mind, here are four capsule wardrobe essentials that you need to own:

1. A little black jacket
A little black dress can certainly come in handy, but a little black jacket is a more versatile way to give yourself instant style. Team it with jeans, biker boots and a t-shirt for a grown-up grungy look. Tone down an evening dress a little by slinging it over the top, or add some instant office credibility to a casual dress for those unexpected meetings.

  2. A statement necklace
Accessories can instantly change an outfit from ordinary to outstanding. Shoes and bags help, but there’s nothing like a big, statement necklace to really make a difference to your look. You can give even the simplest combination of jeans and top an edge with some bling, or a big splash of chunky coloured beads.

3. Knee-length boots
Whether you prefer heeled or flat, chunky or pointy, a pair of knee-length boots is a must. They go perfectly with skinny jeans, or skirts and tights, and can even look great with floaty summer dresses. They tend to make the legs look slimmer and add some sophistication to your outfit.

4. A bright, bold dress
You can blow away the cobwebs instantly with a bright, bold dress that will get people looking and talking. Big, block colours are perfect if you want to combine the dress with different accessories to create different looks. Red dresses make for an especially vibrant statement: check out these gorgeous red dresses at for some inspiration.

Ph. Me 

Two weeks ago me and fellow blogger friend Nadine were invited to be a part of the Berlin Press Days which is organized for journalists, buyers and bloggers in order to visit the showrooms.

My first stop was the Nike Brunch, where we were spoiled with some delicious food, macaroons and
the latest Nike pieces. We made it through the stormy rain to Häberlein & Mason where we spotted
the Topshop Unique collection which I am a huge fan of.
Our next stop was the Bold Communications Agency where the very talented Monja draw a portrait of me. A new designer which I had to keep in mind is Bobby Kolade

BERLIN: An idea from me...

A question I get ask a lot is, "Is it ok for you that other people are copying the way you are
dressing... ?!"
Kay, who isn't only an incredible woman but also a close friend of mine, recently showed me a
quote which is one of the best I've heard in a while when it comes to that specific question.
Quoting these phrases is the best way to answer it...!

"Someone doesn't take anything from you when he copies the way you dress -
though he might seems weird if he does it every day...
Instead, as Thomas Jefferson said (and this is especially true when someone copies the way
someone dresses),
"He who receives an idea from me, receives instruction himself without lessening mine;
as he who lights his taper at mine, receives light without darkening me." "
- From the book: What the Dog Saw: And Other Adventures

3Do you think being that you’re an attractive and stylish female that you appear to be more appealing to people? Do people sometimes have the wrong intentions when working with you?
"Beauty lies in the eye of the beholder. There are people who are calling me extremely beautiful and others don’t even look at me in a certain way. I am not dressing the way I do to appear more appealing, it’s just the way I am." -Julia

My little shopping trip to Nike Town in Berlin was quite successful. I went home with three new
babies. Number one is the Sport Bra which I was wearing yesterday. Number two is this bad ass
waist pack. If you're following me on Instagram (@geeksndfashion) then you might have already
seen Number three. What's your favorite piece out of my selection? xx

Today, it was finally time for the Swedish label MONKI to open its first store in the capital at
Hackescher Markt. Fans of the H&M lable come fully on their expense on 300m ². The two floors are
used to shine in the individual style of the fashion brand. Berlin to Hamburg, Essen and Leipzig, the
fourth city in Germany, in the expanding company opened a shop. Not only the store surprised with
delicious little cupcakes, drinks and cool music but also the after party was a full success. Thumbs up!

BERLIN: On my Kobe Ish

Basketball is definitely the most attractive sport to me when it comes to athletic men.
No surprise that I love to hang out in a nice jersey every now and then. But sometimes it's just way
too sporty to pull it off in the original way. Therefore I decided to only show a tiny part of it by
covering it under one of my favorite dresses created by the wonderful Elin Kling.
Lots of Love and Kisses from Berlin xxx
