Hottest colour of the year

Of course we’re talking about RED. The colour you just can’t miss.

Everything looks a little bit better if it’s red. Jackets, dresses, shoes, lips. It’s without doubt the colour of the year.

Soon december is coming up and christmas is on the calendar. Get into the christmas spirit and wear red. Christmas never looked so trendy!

Red. The colour of love. And we love it.

#metoo

Raise your voice!

We, at Reve, stand for women’s rights and will always encourage the empowerment of women.

We think the message of #metoo is of high importance and that’s something that should be noticed and spread across the board. Sexual harassment and assault is not acceptable and there should be no tolerance for it in this world. We hope that #metoo will be a step in the right direction against preventing any sexual harassment! From Reve, we will support and defend the cause as its own. No step backward shall be allowed!

Halloween is here!

What do you want to be for Halloween?

Spooky? Sexy? Hilarious?

How about trendy?

When you think of Halloween, trendy isn’t what comes to mind. Think again! Dress yourself in velvet, lace and leather; materials that never go wrong. Use ruffles or sparkle up in a glittery suit; two of the hottest trends of the season. A pair of high knee boots will make every outfit trendy and work whether you dress up as a cat, a vampire or a witch. And if you are one of those last minute kind of people, top your simple outfit with a pair of ears and fierce make-up and you are ready to go!

I’m Rosanna! This is what you should wear this fall

Hi everyone!

I am Rosanna Singh, Reve’s newest addition. I am a passionate fashion student who is basically always studying the subject, both behind the school bench and out in real life. Fashion never sleeps, it is everywhere and anywhere. My heart beats a little extra for faux fur coats and designer handbags and if I could dream I would have a walk-in closet full of them.

At Reve I will work with Content Marketing and give you all the fashion inspiration you need. You will never miss the latest trend or the new collection that eventually will hang in everybody’s closet. With my help you will be the first in the group to know about it!

To be the center of attention this fall you should be bold in your fashion choices. Don’t hold back on the colours! Red, yellow, pink and a lot of glitter. And of course, like every fall, the cozy knitwear never gets old, preferably with balloon sleeves. Add a faux fur coat and you are ready to go!

Less Is More

If everything goes according to plan, I’ll be approaching the quarter mark of my life pretty soon. I’ve always believed that “less is more”, and simplifying your wardrobe can really help you to save time without compromising on style.

THE GUIDELINES TO MINIMAL STYLE

FIT:

The fit has to be perfect, or near perfect. As a rule of thumb, if you have to keep tugging at your clothes, don’t buy them.

QUALITY:

When a material is sheer when it shouldn’t be, or creases easily, it shows. Materials that make an outfit look luxe include silk, linen, cotton and leather. Natural fabrics like these also tend to get softer with age, unlike manmade ones like jersey or polyester.

VERSATILITY:

When shopping, If you can’t put an outfit together in your head under 5 seconds with pieces you already own in your wardrobe, put the item back on the shelf. Shopping for an extra piece to help that oh-so-trendy skirt does not make sense and is a waste of time and money.

With these three tips in mind, let’s look at the five pieces that make a trend-proof wardrobe.

#1 The Long Vest

Shop the look

Minimal style doesn’t have to be 2D. You can add depth and details to your outfit by layering a long vest on top. For shorter girls, a long vest can elongate your silhouette and make you look taller. Plus, talk about the endless layering possibilities — wear it over literally any outfit for instant style points. Or, cinch the waist with a belt and voila, a structured dress that flatters every figure.


#2 The Black Dress

Shop the look

For a fail-safe, the simple shift dress will always create a sophisticated silhouette. Experiment with different materials and textures; a heavy cotton material constructs movement when you walk and gives you that ‘fresh off the runway’ vibe.

The 90’s silk slip is also in vogue, but be careful to choose quality-made pieces that have a thicker, more luxurious feel — you wanna channel high-fashion Kate Moss in the 90’s, not a nightie.


#3 The Straight-Cut Trouser

Shop the look

Every self-respecting woman needs a sharp pair of pants. I mean, that’s just like, the rules of feminism. (If you didn’t get that Mean Girls Reference, we can’t be friends) A slim, fitted leg that’s slightly cropped will focus the attention on the slimmest part of your leg. To get the most out of your trousers, you want a pair that’s buttonless at the front and tabless at the waist. The trouser’s flat front and slim fit will allow you to layer pieces on top without adding bulk.


#4 The Black Ankle Boot

Shop the look

A low, block-heeled boot is an essential for your everyday wear. It’s semi-formal and can go the distance. To add texture to your wardrobe, go for embossed leather rather than typical flat, matte leather. Also opt for a boot with an elongated toe shape to add length to your legs and make up for the shorter heel.


#5 The Structured Handbag

Shop the look

An everyday handbag needs to have both form and function, so opt for a bag with minimal hardware and structural integrity. A medium size with multiple compartments also saves you precious minutes digging in an abyss for your things.

As mentioned, the key to minimalist styling is to invest in QUALITY pieces. Neutral tones such as white and black also help to accentuate one’s overall silhoutte. Do bear these tips in mind when shopping for your next outfit! Have a great week ahead 🙂

Turn your life around in 2017

Every year we set new year’s resolutions that we never seem to keep and buy beautiful planners (which we only use diligently for about 6 weeks, tops) in a bid to stay organised and goal-oriented. We all know at least one or two people who always seem to have their lives together and manage to stay on top of everything seemingly with little effort. Those who always manage to finish up their work and leave the office on time, have time to hit the gym and still maintain a super active social life. Yeah, those people. We hate ‘em because we wish we were more like them.

Well, if you’re serious about getting down to business and totally kicking ass in your professional and personal life this year, follow our lead….

These are the 4 habits of productive people that you definitely should develop if you want to reach your goals.

 

Don’t Just Set Goals, Set Deadlines Too

Setting realistic goals is the first step. The second step is to give yourself a timeline (which should also be realistic) to achieve your goals and check in on your progress once in a while to make sure you’re on the right track. Wanna lose 5kg? Push yourself to do it within 3 months. Wanna start “giving back”? Sign up at your local charity foundations and tell yourself to volunteer at least once a month, example, every first Sunday of each month.

 

When you’ve assigned a timeline for your various goals, each goal will seem much more achievable once you’ve reached certain milestones. There’s an added sense of urgency attached to it too, so you’ll hopefully be much more driven to work hard to achieve your goals.

Don’t Let Technology Hold You Back

There is always something new and exciting in the world of social media and the great abyss we call the Internet. We often find ourselves spending an extra 15 minutes lying in bed after our morning alarm has gone off just mindlessly scrolling through Instagram or Facebook, and of course, sleeping way too late every night because we just had to finish up the latest season of [insert TV series] on Netflix. When you look at all these pockets of time you spend on your laptops and phones and add them all up, you realize just how much time you’ve wasted each week.

 

Give yourself X amount of time each day or week that you can devote to the Internet and social media. For example, I take the time when I’m commuting back and forth from work to catch up on my various social media platforms and I’ve also made it a point not to use my laptop on weeknights. Instead of getting sucked into a YouTube or Netflix binge upon reaching home from work, how about dedicate a few hours to read books or bake? In turn, dedicate Saturday evenings for lazing around in bed with your partner, binge-watching shows and snacking for hours (after doing something fun, like hiking or visiting a museum). Balance is key. Don’t ever let technology steal your precious time!

 

Avoid Multitasking

In this day and age, it’s hard to ever focus on just one task when there are distractions everywhere. Sure, people brag about being able to multitask, insisting that it increases productivity. We’ve got news for you! Wanna do things well, and do them quick? Focus your energy on one thing instead alternating between two or three things. When you try to juggle various tasks at once, your brain is never fully focused on any one of them. The consequence is that the chance of you making a mistake is higher and you’ll end up wasting more time than saving it. If what you need to do is important, give it the respect it deserves, which is your undivided attention.

 

Get Sufficient Rest

Being productive doesn’t mean cramming as many activities as you possibly can into 24 hours. Sleep is vital to being productive every single day. You may think that you can function totally fine on little sleep, but in reality, you are completely overestimating your capabilities. Getting a minimum of 6 to 7 hours of sleep every night is not an option if you want to lead a productive and healthy life, it is downright a necessity. To have your body functioning at it’s best daily, plan your days out well in order for you to have sufficient rest every night. Your mind and body will thank you for it.

New Year New You: 4 Ways To Look Younger Without Botox

We all wanna stay #ForeverYoung, but cosmetic procedures like botox and facelifts can be costly and painful. If you’re looking for painless and affordable ways to hold on to your youthful looks, you’ve come to the right place! Here are needle-free ways to achieve a firmer and plumper-looking complexion!

Eat Fresh

Avoid consuming too much sugar daily. A slice of cake every now and then won’t kill you but when you have too much sugar in your diet, glycation will occur. Glycation weakens the collagen and elastic in your skin (meaning you’ll lose that youthful plump appearance).

 

Ditch processed foods and consume fresh foods. Eat more fish that are high in omega-3 fatty acids which promotes healthy and glowing skin! Spinach is an excellent vegetable that you should be eating more of, as it’s rich in beta-carotene (which converts into the anti-aging Vitamin A). It’ll allow for proper moisture retention in your skin, which prevents the formation of wrinkles!

 


 

Drink Up

Not drinking enough water is one of the most common bad habits that dry out your skinIf your system is dehydrated, that means your skin is too. Dehydrated skin = wrinkles! Stay hydrated throughout the day with any of these delicious detox waters that are super easy and cheap to DIY. They’re not as boring as plain old water and are chock-full of vitamins!

 


 

Follow The Rules

You can slather on pricey creams and pay for expensive facial treatments but none of that will matter if you don’t take care of your skin every single day. You’ll start to see the difference within a month!

 


 

Change Your Makeup Routine

If you’ve got dry skin, dump any powder products as they dry out your skin even more and can accentuate lines.

That’s a wrap, folks! Hope you enjoyed the brief breakdown. Stay beautiful and lit throughout 2017 😌

Why We Love Ankle Boots & So Should You

By the end of this article, you’re definitely going to be convinced to get yourself a pair.

#1: It’s comfortable as hell.

If you’re all about comfort, the booties are your best bet. You can wear them all day and then to party at night!

 

#2: It goes well with anything and everything.

Anything – literally anything will look good with ankle boots. Scroll on for proof.

 

#3: Your casual wear is instantly elevated with the boots.

Elevate the simplest of outfits with a pair of sleek booties.

 

#4: It toughens up your feminine outfit.

On some days, you’re feeling more like a rock star and want to wear a particular (feminine) dress. Try pairing your dresses with an edgy (possibly studded) pair of boots to toughen up your look.

 

#5: Wear it with shorts/skirt and you’ll appear to have longer legs.

Something about how ankle booties cut above your ankle gives the illusion that your legs are longer than they really are.

 

#6: People might mistake you for a model-off-duty.

Booties are most commonly noticed on models that are off-duty, either after a fashion show or just on the streets. Pair it with a casual band-tee for an effortless look.

 

#7: Put on a blazer and it’s good for meetings.

The ankle boots can also be worn to meetings, ideally with a blazer. Best of both worlds they say!

 

Convinced that ankle boots are all that you need now? Don’t forget to share your #OOTD with your booties on reve app. If you need a pair, get yours in reve today!

(P.S. Always strut in your boots with confidence)

The only way you can make sure that you don’t turn up in the exact same outfit as someone else is to make your own costume!

Mad Max

We love Mad Max for its strong feminist message and of course, the amaaaazing costumes in the movie. To recreate the badass, biker meets tribal warrior looks, you will need a little makeup and a great imagination.

Dig out any old clothes from your wardrobe that you don’t wear anymore (preferably in neutral colors like cream, brown, black and grey), rip them up in strategic spots and layer on leather and metal accessories. Bonus points if you can be bothered to use a little makeup or paint to stain your outfit to make it look like you’ve really been down and dirty. Finish off your looks with messy hair and combat boots.

Here are some tips on how to distress and stain your unwanted apparel to make it look super legit.

Hands down one of the most stylish outlawed couples in history, Bonnie & Clyde are the perfect inspiration for any couple looking for last minute costume ideas. You can create any of their iconic looks by mixing and matching items from your own closets! Bonnie, don’t forget the silk scarf and beret, and for Clyde, all you need is a sharp suit and a fedora. If you can score toy guns to complete your outfits, that would be the cherry on top!

The Great Gatsby

Relive the roaring 20’s and all that jazz by channeling F. Scott Fitzgerald’s beautiful debutante Daisy Buchanan and the mysterious millionaire Jay Gatsby.

This is an incredibly chic costume option for a big group of girls too. Imagine all that glitz! Pick a party dress (anything that has sequins, lace or fringe) and accessorize with elbow-length satin or lace gloves, pearl necklaces and a beaded headband. Wanna go all out? Add a feather boa or faux fur shawl to really turn heads.

Your makeup and hair can make or break your look. Check out one of the best Gatsby hair tutorials(the costumes are beyond gorgeous too!) and this super easy hairdo!

Mary Poppins & Bert

“Anything can happen if you let it.” is a lesson both adults and kids can learn from Mary Poppins. It’s not at all difficult to dress up as Mary and Bert. For Mary, you’ll need a crisp white shirt, midi black skirt. Accessorize with her signature black hat (don’t forget the little white and red flowers on the sides!), red bow tie and white gloves. As for Bert, just throw on a grey suit (if you’re not wearing a blazer, a vest or suspenders will do), a thin red scarf and a beret.

If any of the ideas we’ve mentioned above seem too dull for you, give this a go. Reinterpret the club kids of the 90’s however you want! Go full fledge retro. The key to nailing this look is to be as bold as possible.

Clash different prints and super bright colors and most importantly, don’t hold back. Don’t forget to do your hair! Are you a real club kid if you don’t have glitter in your hair? We think not. Follow this tutorial for the sparkliest hairdo ever.
