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 female denim: not only jeans

We often associate the word denim not only with the type of fabric, but also with certain items of clothing:  usually blue jeans (quilted trousers in denim fabric) and the denim jacket, also stitched with metal buttons. Denim is not just that and is not only used for informal clothing. This year denim is the protagonist of spring, we had already talked about it in …

The cape: elegant also with trousers

Easy to wear on clothes with large volumes (What to wear over the full-flared skirt) …

Boots for the summer

stile Not Only Twenty

Now we have to adapt to the extravagance of fashion, not having much to invent, designers propose pieces purely winter for summer collections. This is the case of the boots presented in all spring / summer collections. Seeing that this year the spring (and with it the mild temperature) doesn’t want to arrive is not completely out of place to wear boots, for sure it will …

Lingerie: the invisible panties

style Not Only Twenty

Have you ever had troubles with panties that tighten too much leaving on the buttocks and hips those unsightly “furrows”? We hadn’t this problem in our twenty because the firm skin and the lack of fat allowed us to wear any type of panties without incurring the odious inconveniences. Having had this problem several times I have tried some briefs that don’t tighten and don’t …

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.
