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 Originally made with jersey fabric to model well to the female body was then also made with other fabrics.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

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 …
