Hi! I'm a 23-year-old blogger living in Ljubljana. Stylist and video maker, currently running


// I have a challenge for you. //

I'm challenging you to take a role of a student, who is living on a budget, trying to always look as stylish as possible. That's not easy for anyone, because students can't always afford new clothes in order to follow the trends magazines and designers are feeding us, so I'll be really happy, if you will join their lifestyle for the next 30 days.
I challenge you not to buy anything for the next month and really try to dig deep into your closet and gradually re-discover the items you have already purchased and maybe wore only a few times before. I prepared 8 tips, which I hope will help you survive this challenge:  looking stylish, when you are on a budget, meaning absolutely broke. When you don't have the means to do so, you start being more inventive with your style, which is always a good thing. 

So here they are! Let's do this.

Pop of colour


What better way to incorporate something stylish into your day to day outfit than with a nice pop of colour. In autumn I especially love to wear burgundy, blue, green and of course this burnt orange/brown shade - these are all the perfect autumnal colours anyone could introduce to their wardrobe. Pop of colour is probably the easiest way to change the day you normally dress and people really positively react to that. So don't be afraid of some colour!

Follow the rule of 3


A fashion rule of three is something that you should always keep in mind while picking your looks for that day. When choosing an outfit, you naturally opt for a combination of a bottom (jeans, trousers, skirts) and a simple top; even though there's absolutely nothing wrong with following this simple routine, you can always mix it up by simply adding a third item, which can instantly transform an otherwise simple outfit. Be it a statement belt, earrings, or a pop of colour in your bag or shoes - adding a third element will instantly elevate your outfit and definitely make you look stylish, even when you're on a tight budget.

The leather jacket


I'll be very quick with this one, because you're all probably already sick of hearing the same exact thing in every single post of mine. So yes, you probably guessed it from the beginning of this post - it's my beloved leather jacket, which is in my opinion the best fashion investment you can ever opt for. So let your jacket fall of your shoulders or to make it more effortless, keep it more subtle and just do one shoulder.

Voila, another easy way to elevate your look in just a few short seconds.

Shop for / Invest in the classics


Always buy clothes that will never go out of fashion - basics will represent the core of your wardrobe, so don't be hesitant to invest in some classic white (silk) shirts, blazers, sweaters, pencil skirts and trousers. These are the pieces everyone should own in their closet because they will represent the majority of your outfit. If they look good, you will look good as well.

Matching sets


This is currently my favourite trend, a matching set of a pencil skirt and a simple top. If you really think about it, it's a simple combo, but the colour and the pattern make it so much more fashionable and appealing. You will look like you put a lot of effort into your outfit, even though you didn't. Awesome, huh. 
If you don't have a matching set, don't panic, we can makes this work. You most likely own a top and a bottom piece of clothing in the same material or colour and you maybe haven't worn it together before. Don't be hesitant and try them on - all one colour outfits are really on trend, especially if we are talking about neutrals, pastels or a pop of red. 

Follow the rule of 2


Besides the rule of three, there's another rule you should be following, when trying to look a but more stylish than usual. This is a trick that I frequently follow, because it's super easy and I'm honestly way too lazy to put a lot of effort into the way I look most times. So when you chose a dress or a jumpsuit (so a one-piece item of clothing) don't just leave it at that - put a top, shirt or a cami underneath, to add another element to a simple outfit. You can also introduce some colour back into your look or another interesting texture (velvet, sequins), pattern, etc.
Choices are endless with this one! You just have to find out what works best for you. 

Wearing a blazer as a top


You may haven't thought of this next tip before, but it's such an easy one, you will quickly introduce it into your style. It's wearing blazer as a top in combination with jeans and a pair of awesome statement boots. Wear a nice bra or bralette underneath, tie it around your waist and rock you favourite blazer as a top. I love to wear my blue and black stripped blazer from Zara in combination with light wash boyfriend jeans from Mango and a pair or sock boots with a statement silver block heel.

All black outfit


Last but not least - my favourite style tip of all time. When in doubt, always opt for an all black look. You can never go wrong with this one, because you will look put-together and classy no matter what the circumstances are. You can wear an all black outfit to a important event, work, school or on your next shopping trip. It's undoubtedly the easiest way into tricking people you have your sh** together. It's what I do most of the days.

So that's it. These are some of my tips to help you style yourself!
