A revised version of bingo helps you plan your outfits!

Transitioning to a new season is always tough, especially for people who live and breathe fashion. New seasons mean new trends to keep up with, new items of clothing to invest in, and new outfits to plan; It can get pretty overwhelming. Luckily, BooHoo.com has come up with a little game of Wardrobe Bingo to help with all that hard work.

It might seem like bingo has no place in the fashion world, being the drab, boring game that senior citizens play in stuffy bingo halls, but the game seems to have sprouted a sense of fashion in recent years. Not only have the most fashionable people of the world started to take up the game (case in point Kate Moss and Catherine Zeta-Jones, unashamed lovers of bingo), but the game itself has started blooming into a colorful experience.

No longer confined to calling out numbers in boxes, bingo has also seen powerups in the form of Greek, Roman and Egyptian gods in Bingogodz, and wild bingo competitions in Rebel Bingo. BooHoo.com has taken bingo further into the fashion world by creating a simple game that allows the stylish to make full use of their bursting wardrobes.

The principles of Wardrobe Bingo are simple: gather five items that fall under the following categories: tops, bottoms, shoes, and accessories, and label each item with a number from 1-5. Participants then pick a random number for each category, put on all the corresponding clothing items, and take a photo of the final outfit.

As spring approaches, now is the perfect time to start looking for some of the key pieces that will make up your wardrobe. A quick edit through BooHoo.com’s Wardrobe Bingo can help you plan what items of clothing to invest in next, especially when working on a budget. To play, grab a bingo card template off the internet (or create one yourself — just a 5×5 grid on a piece of cardboard), and mark each row as Tops, Bottoms, Shoes and Accessories, and each column with a number from 1-5. In each box, take down a key Spring 2014 trend that corresponds to the clothing group.

Here are some of our favorite trends to rock this season, courtesy of Elle.com:

For tops, off the shoulder shirts and dresses are all the rage this coming season.

Color: Orange is the new black, and pinks are perfect for spring.

Mules (that’s right, the mules are making a serious comeback this spring), and for comfort look to skater shoes, as seen on uber fashionista Jourdan Dunn.

For accessories, our favorites of the spring collections were the big, bold, colorful, and DIY-inspired pieces.

Now before you go out on a shopping spree, roll the dice for each clothing group, and take note of the corresponding trend. For example, rolling a 3 for bottoms means you’re going out on a quest to find the perfect board shorts, and a 5 for accessories will send you on a lookout for bright gems. When you roll a 6, pick out your trend of choice from the list.

Hello fellow fashionistas!

Us modern women are always busy – whether we juggle family, studies, work, supporting our men, a million errands and running a household and of course try to leave a little time for shopping. We don’t always have time to plan our outfits and really think about what to wear on certain occasions. What’s easier than wearing a matched set?! Minimum thought is required, 100% fabulousness achieved.

The return of 80’s and 90’s fashion brought back the perfectly matched sets. The modern take on this trend is much more exciting though: sets that are made effortlessly by putting together similar prints, colors, fabrics, etc. This goes hand in hand with the current fashion attitude of making the outfit all your own and letting your confidence and creativity shine.

Rony wore a sheer owl print chiffon blouse with sheer chiffon overlay shorts, gray fedora, gray peep toe booties, and leather satchel.

The matching fabrics and similar patterns and colors of the pieces Rony wore made this a perfect set and the masculine hat together with the ultra trendy booties made Rony’s outfit uber cool.

Vera wore a flannel button down shirt, turquoise denim skirt and green blazer with checkered All Stars.

Vera’s layered outfit is perfect for the in between seasons. While the jacket and skirt are all modern business woman, Vera’s slap-on-and-go shoes will make this outfit comfortable for any girl’s hectic day.

So when choosing what to wear for the busy day ahead of you we suggest using your creativity to put together your perfect set. One way you could always change it up and keep the matching interesting is with your makeup and nailpolish.

Hey guys!

Summer nights are getting hotter and so are our going out outfits! Sleeveless, strapless, basically less! We chose summer dresses made out of breathable, gentle, flowy fabrics. These dresses are sexy and stylish for a night out yet chic and classy to suit a day or dinner party. While the lengths of the dresses can be kept demure, bold colors are a great way to bring out your wild side, especially in summer to show off your tan! We decided to keep to the superhero color palette: superwoman bright red and royal blue.

Rony wore a red chiffon leopard print strapless dress  with chunky heeled strappy sandals. She wore the outfit with blue and white striped bag, thin brown belt, and animal pendant necklaces.

The flowiness of her dress is perfect for any season and flattering on all body types and the cut of the dress shows off a small waist like Rony’s.

I wore a 50’s style red and blue print dress with a denim vest, beige cutout wedges and a camel handbag.

The A-lined cut of my dress is especially flattering for a very feminine look, the shape and the print give the illusion of curviness.

I accessorized with a natural coral beads necklace.

Don’t forget that if you chose to reveal on top with a strapless cut, keep it classy and understated with the length of the dress.

We think fabulous dresses are a great excuse to throw a party! best accessory of the day/night? our multicolored balloons 🙂

Whether during the day or at night, keep on party rockin’!!!

Hello fashionistas!

As we’ve told you before, Vera and I have a tendency to wear matching outfits without ever planning to or discussing it; we like to call it style telepathy. It just so happens that we both bought the same layered H&M skirt in different colors.

Skirt Chronicles: One skirt worn two different ways, different body types and different personal styles, and lots of color!

Vera wore her maroon version with an antique looking sea green button down crinkled shirt, large beaded bangles, silver hoops necklace, and gray suede pumps.

I wore my pink and orange version with a bright blue zip front top, print silk scarf, gold and formica necklace, navy and cream satchel, waist belt, and peep toe heels.

The great thing about this skirt is it can go so many ways, casual, summery and day chic as I wore it, or posh, office or dinner date ready as Vera wore it.

Isn’t it awesome how the same skirt can look so different when worn in different colors and when put together with different tops, accessories and shoes?!
The lesson this time is mix your colors boldly; don’t be bashful, show off a little!

We truly hope that spring has arrived to your home town because it surely hit ours!

The lovely warm weather and all the flowers that are blooming right now make us crave flowy dresses, hats and of course our favorite accessory- vests. So of course we decided to go boho chic on this post and show you how the look can be achieved.

Rony wore an  A-lined collar navy and white checkered dress. The layers of the dress along with the striped brownish gray vest looked fabulous on Rony and really flattered her shape. She wore nomad-like suede flat booties and a men’s straw panama hat. Sometimes it’s fun to steal from the boys, masculine accessories give feminine dresses a cool twist.

I wore a long floral dress sewn by none other than my mother and moi! The short puffy sleeves of the dress flatter my arms and the high waisted shape combined with the long length would give anyone a beautifully long silhouette. My strappy camel wedges probably helped with the long silhouette 🙂 But flats will look fabulous as well!

Oh the bohemian life… flowy dresses, cool jewelry, awesome music and art and a chilled lifestyle.. sound good? Sounds amazing to us!

So take a walk on the beach, enjoy the sand and the breeze and the sun! But don’t forget to stop for some refreshments in the hot weather!

We may call ourselves “fashionistas” but that doesn’t mean we like to take ourselves too seriously. We love fooling around and even acting immature sometimes; age is but a number!

Since we were pretty much style obsessed as soon as we came out the womb, for this photoshoot we decided to revisit our little girl selves. The wooden playground we visited happens to also be an absolutely gorgeous backdrop for our fabulous outfits.

A true girl’s girl, Vera always loved tutus and lots of pink. The pink tutu miniskirt she wore here is cute and girly, but also has romantic and antique qualities. With it she wore a knit net blouse over a button down shirt. She put her hair up in little buns just as she did when she was little. To complete the look she wore a pearl and flowers necklace and black and cream patent flats.

The print knit vest I wore looks exactly like the one I had in preschool, fashion does repeat itself! I wore the vest over a striped button down shirt with peach shorts and leopard print booties. I completed the look with a large pastel stones drop necklace, big rings and of course my oversized bow hair tie.

A styling tip we borrowed from our kid selves is wearing lots of pastels. They don’t even have to “match”, but lots of light candy colors are eye catching and flattering, and totally right for summer.

An interesting way of layering clothes is wearing long over short, like Vera did with her cropped vest over a long button down shirt over her short skirt. This creates beautiful volume in the outfit and makes it unexpected.

So when life gets a little too serious, we recommend making a play date with your friends and having lots of childish fun! We played so nice we even got a lollipop treat!

We like to keep our outfits interesting and unexpected; wearing bold prints is a great way to put together a creative outfit. Sometimes even mixing different prints can be a visual fete, as long as it’s done wisely.

Vera channeled Jackie O in a houndstooth shift dress which she wore with her skyscraper-high platform booties, a beautiful ornamental gold necklace, gold adorned bangle and a black leather jacket.

I was all about the romance in a pale pink leopard print puff-sleeved dress, heart print tights, camel pumps, silk hair tie, and lots of big jewelry. Sometime the best place to shop is your friends’ closets; my brown leather jacket is from my best friend (it wasn’t Vera’s closet I raided this time!)

One thing’s for sure about prints, you will definitely not go unnoticed while wearing them! So go put on some fabulous prints and get ready to stop traffic!
