Go for boho style when the days become brighter

How many times have you heard of the boho style and how many times about the gipsy style? So many foreign terms to identify what? The kind of look that often appears in Spring and Summer and that calls to mind the gypsy mood. If you only pronounce it, you can perceive even the colours and the joy of the 60ies. These two styles have something in common.

The boho  borrows from the gipsy long and colourful skirts, the love for nature that emerges from the floral prints and the paisley patterns, the desire of freedom suggested by soft fabrics, fringes and tassels that flutter in the wind. Everything seems so simple, but nothing is left to chance…

Does today’s post about the floral dress seem a little obvious? Not for me! The fact is that with better temperatures I can abandon my favourite denim trousers for a more feminine outfit, a dress!

And I’ve probably been influenced on the argument by fashion trends, which propose the floral dress in many styles. From the knee-lenght to the long dress, from the slip to mini dress. Lovely solutions for everybody! But how to understand which dress is more suitable for our body? Well, dear readers, follow me in this short guide!

The pink outfit makes the sun come out

… and how to wear the pink oufit after 40? Can you think of a total pink outfit from head to toe? Dear friends, absolutely not! To avoid the candy effect or the grown up doll, the pink look should be designed for the elegant lady. Around the web I’ve seen so many total pink looks on beautiful ladies over 40 and 50, but the result, in my opinion, was striking and cloying. Women don’t have to attract attention like the Queen of England who must always be recognizable by her guards. They must adopt a more sober attitude towards colours. Which, put into practice, means wearing the pink dress with accessories of contrasting colours, or matching the pink blouse or the small shirt with skirts and trousers in a decidedly darker colour. … Discover the best pink outfits for over 40 at the dedicated page of the blog.

I have to admit it. The denim shirt has never been one of my priorities, but recently I have changed my mind and I have discovered that it is really another must have to add to my endless list. I used to wear it when I was a teenager, like all my friends, then, growing up, I abandoned it. I found it difficult to match it with another of my dearest clothing items, the denim trousers, because they often did not have the same shade of blue. Now, however, after many experiments on possible and creative combinations and conversations on the subject with the friends of all time, I am ready to show you all my secrets and lead you to wear this versatile clothing item. And I promise you that I will find the right outfit for each of you, it doesn’t matter which body shape you are! …

How many times have you been told you should wear black because it makes you look slimmer! And how many times have you avoided white outfits believing they would give you some extra size! Surely more than once you should have had to choose between these two colours, guided by false clichés. White is not a real colour, it’s pure light, a real explosion of light that can only improve your look and your mood. First of all, to the people you relate with, because it communicates trust and good humor. And to you too: if you choose the right shade of white that flatters your complexion and enhances the colours of your eyes and hair, you feel at ease, you look healthier and younger, and the signs of time will be minimized. …

I have thought about suggesting 5 outfits, which are classic but not banal, to wear white with glam and personal style. Go on reading at the dedicated page.

How to find the most flattering jeans

What a great invention that of jeans! It was the year 1871 when Levi Strauss started producing five-pocket jeans for miners and gold diggers. In Europe, however, they arrived later with the American troops. During the following years they became the symbol of freedom and youth, thanks to James Dean and Marlon Brando, who influenced many generations, and in the 60ies they were adopted as the uniform of the student and political revolutions.

But my image of jeans is a bit less socially and politically involved and a much more related to a beautiful picture…..

There are a lot of different jeans’ types, right for any body shapes. I have chosen those that are more suitable for a woman over 40ies. Discover them at the dedicated page of the blog.
