The vest: the glamorous item to have in the closet

Today, friends, I want to talk to you about a particular item: the vest. The vest is one of the pieces that each of us should have in the closet, when I speak of vest I’m not just referring to the waistcoat that men wore under the jacket, but to all possible variations both in size and fabrics. Don’t think of the vest as an …

What to wear with jeans: the top with scarves

Dear friends, the outfit that I propose today is a look a bit unusual for me. In fact, as you may have guessed from the proposed looks, I don’t particularly like too large clothing. I’m not very tall and I’m not thin, when I wear something “shapeless” I seem even more fleshy, so I prefer things more adherent. (Do you remember the white one?) This time …

The dress with ruffles: my passion

I have always had a great passion for dresses with ruffles, in a vaguely gypsy style. I told you about it when I showed you the dress that had started sewing my mother and then finished my friend Luigina, do you remember (A dress I love)? If then the dress is long then it becomes love at first sight. This is what happened with the …

The sarong skirt not only at the beach

We are used to thinking about the sarong like a swimsuit cover when we are at the beach. The Belgian designer Dries Van Noten, whose creations I’m in love with, proposed a long skirt in sarong style to wear in town. When I saw it at Dolci Trame shop in Siena, I immediately fell in love with it, the emotion of distant destinations and transparent …

Summer is full of colors

We are at the height of Summer, which is also the explosion of the colors of nature. To celebrate the August holidays I chose a colorful dress that for me reflects the Summer with all its colors. The yellow of ripe wheat, the blue of the sky in the nights of falling stars, the red of ripe peaches, the green water of the limpid sea …

The long dress is my summer must-have

My Style Not Only Twenty

For some years I have discovered the long dress and, I guarantee you, now I cannot do without it. Despite being a lover of little black dresses and tight-fitting dresses, I’m appreciating the practicality and versatility of the long dress. Practical because it can be worn from morning to night: during the day it is casual and the evening is super feminine and versatile because …

How to be fashionable

Il mio stile Not Only Twenty

Being fashionable for me means feeling good with what I wear, the harmony we create when we build outfits is the mirror of who we are. And because our outfits are a part of us, I don’t like throwing away my clothes just because “old”. It’s nice to change clothes when we want, but it’s also nice to wear pieces that have been in our …

Choice of shirt for a glamorous look

Stile Not Only Twenty

Can a simple shirt be enough to give a glamorous note to a pair of jeans? Yes, certainly if the choice of shirt is prudent. Without raising doubts about the beauty and simplicity of the white cotton shirt worn with blue jeans, the choice of shirt to make the outfit important is essential. Choose a precious fabric like silk and a beautiful and evocative print …

The beauty of total black

My style Not Only Twenty

Although I am a great lover of colors in all seasons, I have to surrender to the beauty of total black. Refined, elegant, feminine and even a little bit “aggressive“, the total-black outfit cannot go unnoticed. When my friend Anna invited me to try on the dress by Ann Demeulemeester (queen of the total black) I immediately liked it. The possibility of wearing it tightening …

The comfort of the wrap dress

The wrap dress was invented in the ’70s by Diane Fon Furstenberg and since then has been a growing success. Comfortable, practical and sexy, the wrap dress has neither zippers nor buttons. Originally made with jersey fabric to model well to the female body was then also made with other fabrics. Adherent in the bust, it overlaps and closes with a belt of the same …

How to wear a jacket in summer

My style Not Only Twenty

The men’s jacket is not just about winter and Vittoria Beckham demonstrates it with her forest pantsuit that has become the must-have of summer 2018. Do you remember that we had already talked about it in the post What to add in our closet for the summer? In addition to light clothes it is important to have a summer jacket in the closet. Wear the jacket …

Pajama style: what combinations

I like very much pajama style because it’s easy and elegant at the same time. An important aspect is to make the right combinations. If you wear a suit in this style the risk is appearing as you get out of bed (and this must be avoided), but if you use the appropriate combinations you will be refined. I had already proposed pajama style, once …
