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 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 …

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 …

The secret to dressing well (spending little)

My style Not Only Twenty

There is no need to spend lot of money to dress well and be elegant: sometimes it’s enough to wait for the right opportunity (sales), or look for clothes similar to those that make us crazy, but at reasonable prices. Yeah, but it could mean waiting months for the right occasion, or scanning lot of shops looking for the right piece. I  adopt a strategy, over …

Why we should have a camel coat

Style at fifty Not Only Twenty

Each of us should have a camel coat in our closets for more than one reason. Because it is an evergreen, because it is the most chic of colors, because it matches everything, because it is good for everyone. I had already written that for a long time I thought that camel color was a color that didn’t match to my complexion, I have an olive …
