How many times have we asked ourselves what was the right dress for that occasion or for the other, perhaps thousands of times.

It is not always easy to be refined and well dressed without being inadequate …

Today I want to talk to you about a particular item: the vest. Men’s clothing, which is now in disuse, is most often offered in a female version.

Long shirt, the garment for every size

fashion at 50 Not Only Twenty

I love the long shirt, an evergreen garment, which is good at every age and size. It doesn’t matter if it has side slits or buttons at the front, the length is the decisive aspect, because it tends to slim even the more shapely women. From the white cotton shirt to the silk shirt, the choice depends on the match we want to make. How …

How to wear a poncho to be chic

The poncho is not a usual garment. It usually is worn in winter, but there are also some models in silk to wear all year round. Colors, shape and material determine the style of this garment. I remember, at the end of the 1970s, those knitted with alpaca wool, Andean designs, and fringed in the bottom were fashionable. I had fallen in love so much that …
