Fall / Winter 2018 fashion preview

Although the summer has not yet arrived, the autumn winter 2018 fashion shows have already ended and this allows us to see what the next season‘s trends will be. This also allows us to make informed purchases during the summer sales. The must-have of the next season is the metallic: a lot of silver, but also gold and black. Fabulous the metal leggings by Tom Ford: …

Summer 2018 shines with sequins

style Not Only Twenty

Summer 2018 will make us shine with dresses embroidered with sequins. We women tend to be very sensitive to everything that shines, so this is an opportunity to buy a particular piece of clothing. No longer embroidered only on evening dresses, the sequins are beautiful even on suits and trouser suits, as well as tops and skirts. To wear less formally even during the day …

Sunglasses: summer trend 2018

I don’t know about you, but I cannot do without a pair of sunglasses in my bag, to be used as soon as possible. And, like clothes, I like to change glasses too. I had made a rundown of those I had chosen to take pictures in the post The charm of sunglasses (which I recommend you read because there is also a the history: …

What to add in our closet for the Summer

Fashion Not Only Twenty

We are close to summer and, in addition to the jeans, the white shirt, the pencil skirt we had put in the wardrobe for spring (What to have in the closet for  spring), there are garments that are essential for summer. The only piece of clothing that we have to remove from the wardrobe among all the pieces we had chosen for spring, is the …

Camera bag: the perfect bag

my style Not Only Twenty

The camera bag, more or less the same size of the camera case (hence the name), is considered the ideal bag just for its size. Small to not weigh and clutter, but large enough to hold the basic items, with a zip on top and long shoulder strap to carry on the shoulder or cross-body, has had a great success. There are many brands that …

The patchwork of summer 2018

Style Not Only Twenty

Do you know patchwork? It is the technique used by combining different fabrics to create a single garment. Cheerful, imaginative and unpredictable, the patchwork combines tulle with cotton, silk, linen without limits imposed by fabric and patterns to create beautiful and certainly very special clothes. I remember in the seventies patchwork was the symbol of protest, of feminist struggle and of hippies. It was very …

If you want to be trendy, put something on your head …

Style Not Only Twenty

Summer 2018 wants all of us with an accessory on the head. If you love hats like me, you will be delighted that one of the must-have of the spring / summer 2018 is an accessory for the head, not necessarily a hat. To be fashionable, it is enough to wear a handkerchief tied around the neck like the beautiful Grace of Monaco (see proposal …

Which swimsuit to choose if …

 Dear friends, have you already booked your holidays? I did, happy to return to the Amalfi coast, which in addition to the unsurpassed beauty also offers a succulent cuisine (Amalfi: where to eat for a romantic dinner). This year I want to buy a new bikini, but which model to choose? For long-limbed friends there are no problems, you can choose everything you like, for …

The female denim: not only jeans

We often associate the word denim not only with the type of fabric, but also with certain items of clothing:  usually blue jeans (quilted trousers in denim fabric) and the denim jacket, also stitched with metal buttons. Denim is not just that and is not only used for informal clothing. This year denim is the protagonist of spring, we had already talked about it in …

Boots for the summer

stile Not Only Twenty

Now we have to adapt to the extravagance of fashion, not having much to invent, designers propose pieces purely winter for summer collections. This is the case of the boots presented in all spring / summer collections. Seeing that this year the spring (and with it the mild temperature) doesn’t want to arrive is not completely out of place to wear boots, for sure it will …

Lingerie: the invisible panties

style Not Only Twenty

Have you ever had troubles with panties that tighten too much leaving on the buttocks and hips those unsightly “furrows”? We hadn’t this problem in our twenty because the firm skin and the lack of fat allowed us to wear any type of panties without incurring the odious inconveniences. Having had this problem several times I have tried some briefs that don’t tighten and don’t …

Pantsuit: 2018 trend

style Not Only Twenty

I always loved the pantsuit because men’s clothing worn with feminine grace intrigues me a lot and as I wrote I find it very sensual, so I’m happy that for spring/summer 2018 the pantsuit is one of the trends of the season. The pantsuit of the season is not the usual pantsuit, but it is something special that can express the personality of the wearer. …
