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 Originally made with jersey fabric to model well to the female body was then also made with other fabrics.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 …

Change pairings to create new outfits

I love changing the combinations of clothing to create different outfits, even in style. The ability to mix the pieces we have in the closet helps us to have more outfits and is also fun. Do you remember my duster coat combined with trousers with the same pattern? In the post Duster coat and matching trousers I wore the suit under the velvet coat. Despite …

How to wear an oversized coat (if we are not tall and thin)

Style Not Only Twenty

I really like oversized outerwear, but with my body that is not longilineal, but shapely and not very tall, the risk of looking squared is very high. I often want to try on a piece, but usually I’m disappointed by how it fits on me. Browsing LaMari Creative Shopping boutique in Milan, I fell in love with the brand Otra Vez and Mariarosa (the owner) advised …

The cape: elegant also with trousers

my style Not Only Twenty

By now, my great passion for capes is well established, after the first one I bought, I had two more stitches sewed by my friend Luigina and I think that for the next autumn I will choose another one by making the appropriate modifications to make it different from the others. Easy to wear on clothes with large volumes (What to wear over the full-flared skirt) …

The low-cost trench coat

Style Not Only twenty

Do you remember that we had talked about the trench coat as the trend of spring 2018 (The trench coat, a great return for spring 2018)? One of the features of the trench coat is that, being a classic,  it doesn’t provide for many variations and this can be very useful, especially if we already have one in our closet. What I have in my …

Dress up easy for Easter

My style Not Only Twenty

In the last two proposals of My Style, the chosen outfits were suggestions for clothing to wear at Easter, two fairly elegant choices. Today I want to show you an outfit that is easier, but no less effective. If you spend Easter with your family or in a not too formal environment, an easier outfit is more suitable for the day, but we don’t have …

Duster coat and matching trousers

Fashion Not Only Twenty

Today I would like to talk about the duster coat, which the dictionary of La Repubblica defines as: “light fabric overcoat, for men or women, that between the end of the century XIX and the beginning of the XX was worn during the travels in diligence, and then in the car, to repair the clothes from the dust “. Now our travels are no longer …

What to wear over the full-flared skirt

My style Not Only Twenty

Have you ever had a dress or a very wide skirt, maybe made with a rather stiff fabric chosen just to highlight the breadth and don’t know what to wear on? The coat makes you look obese because it remains opened by the volume of the skirt (or dress), a jacket even worse. A very short jacket might be indicated, but the whole is not …
