    Dress Zimmermann
    Zimmermann has always been one of my favorite designers and I am always guaranteed to find something I love in each collection. So it was not a surprise when I fell in love with this mini leather dress. I mean where do I start? The soft pink leather is simply sublime and the silhouette is full of interesting contrasts, from the tight waist to the magyar sleeves. The full-length zipper gives it a modern twist, while the high collar and corset offer contrasting Victorian-inspired elements. I could see myself taking this to many events, including the upcoming holiday season.

    With a dress as striking as a backdrop, I had to keep my aerodynamic and minimalist accessories. My bag is actually a leather bag that I have turned into a clutch (one way to get the most out of your fashion money is to be able to use an item in several ways). I kept the classic black Alaia heels, unpretentious, and added a playful final touch with my round-frame Chloe sunglasses.

    Blouse Maticevski
    Earlier this week, I traveled to Melbourne with my family to see my mother join the Australian Sports Hall of Fame. Attending the 34th Annual Induction Gala Dinner and Sports Australia Awards Hall of Fame was a truly special occasion for all of us, especially for Mum. For such an event I wanted to use something a little different, something with a strong silhouette, and by the time I saw this Maticevski look I could not see myself wearing anything else.

    Usually, I tend to go for dresses for big events, so it was great to be able to venture out of my comfort zone. This upper part is spectacular: the one-shoulder neckline, the subtle architectural ruffle and the incredible train made it perfect for the occasion. The soft blush also worked perfectly with the white pants made to measure and had a very strong and yet feminine.

    The color palette of my outfit was quite soft, so I knew I needed to keep the theme for the rest of the look, since anything too bold would have been a bit shocking. This magnificent clutch of Farrah and Sloane had the right aesthetic. I loved the fringes and also the handle, and the style stood firm against my attire without taking anything away. A pair of neutral classical pumps by Christian Louboutin was the ideal shoe and it worked well with the rest of the colors of my set.

    It's always so fun to be able to dress up for events and wear beautiful things, but this aspect will remain especially special to me because of the time I wore it. What an honor it was to see the hard work and achievements of my mother celebrated on such a large scale, I can not think of a person who deserves it more.

    Ankle Boots Gianvito Rossi
    Look: Styles! - 19 September 2018
    There is always a garment that becomes the must-have of the season. That which goes beyond the trends and consolidates almost like a uniform to wear all season. It is in all the holiday suitcases, in the street style, on Instagram and in all the stores.

    This year the hype goes for dresses, which are already the viral look of the moment. The influencers look so stylish.

    It is a basic, but the dresses always have that modern and carefree point that manages to turn any look into bright. In addition, they are very simple to combine, so it is perfect for those days of extreme heat where you can not even think about what to wear.

    Heels, flat sandals, backpack, shoulder bag, sunglasses ... you'll change the whole look of that dress with just one punch of accessories.

    This we present is great to enjoy these days, a maxu of prints with shirt underneath. The booties are the touch!

    Tank Top Zimmermann
    There are pieces that I have in my closet that are definitely more appropriate for the night, but that does not mean that that is their sole purpose. Often, the looks that are for night events tend to be a bit more expensive due to their style and construction, so to make sure that every dollar of fashion is stretched even more, I have taken the task of adapting them again for day clothes. And it is not at all difficult or expensive to do.

    One of the ways that I have been doing the transformation of day to day is with the bottom of Zimmermann, which is too nice to be relegated only at night, so recently I have been combining it with jeans to make it more suitable for clothes casual. This is something that you can easily do with other pieces in your closet. Often, combining something that is a bit more elegant with something more relaxed like jeans can make it less suitable and appropriate for off-duty style. I combined this particular look with a pair of shoes with straps that are polished but not too long for the day and a mini shoulder bag. The final result was a relaxed look, but with the right amount of polishing.

    If I had to use the top at night, although it is a different story. In the afternoons, I tend to favor a more feminine and formal look. So in this case I changed the denim by a midi skirt in a color palette similar to the upper one. And it changed the casual cross bag for a structured clutch with a chain-strap handle that definitely adds to the night-time ambience. I would also go for elegant heels and leave the floors at home. In general, what I was looking for with this particular aspect was something a little more sophisticated and disguised, raised by elegant accessories that have a modern touch.

    I did the transformations below with just one of the top parts, but you can do this with almost anything you have designated as "night only". All that is needed are some key choices that diminish the sensation of elegance during the day, then change them for high pairings during the night and you will get double the wear of your wardrobe instantly.

    It may seem like a contradiction, but masculine style garments often contribute to highlighting your femininity. From the tuxedo to the boyfriend jeans, from the pinstriped jacket to the Oxford shoes, all these garments are able to achieve a new femininity that is subtle, and much more interesting, than that achieved by the most delicate garments.

    Achieving this style is not as complicated as it may seem, you just have to incorporate garments that have traditionally been in the male wardrobe but designed by the designers to adapt to the female anatomy. I'm talking about pants, blazers, shirts, vests, ties, suspenders ...

    Since the fashion pioneers Yves Saint Laurent and Coco Chanel incorporated masculine style garments in the women's wardrobe, many fashion houses and low cost stores have this type of garment in their collections.

    A very chic option of the masculine style are the tuxedos for females. They are elegant, sophisticated and create ideal looks for the most special evenings. In addition, a sober tuxedo is an easy to wear garment and with which the most elegant outfits are achieved. You just have to take into account the size, there is the key. If you really want to wear this piece with class, make as many adjustments as you need to make your tuxedo fit your figure like a glove.

    Blouse Seven Seven
    The satin reigned in the nineties, but that does not mean that two decades later it will not succeed again. The truth is that it is a texture that offers a touch of glamor to the most casual outfits. We have seen it be part of the looks of instagramers, celebrities and fashionistas. So encourage yourself to include a bit of brightness in your outfits.

    If it is a question of combining a satin garment, your best bet is to wear it next to denim. The strong difference between the fabrics of a set like this makes this look one of the most versatile and cools of summer. You can also take it both on casual occasions, as semi formal appointments.

    What are the satin garments that you can not stop wearing? Of course the blouse and dress, which inspired by past trends, were reinvented with an incredible style. The important thing is to dare and wear blouses or dresses in strong and vibrant tones, which together with the shine of the satin, will give you a touch of measured glamor.

    Jacket Camilla And Marc
    The word tracksuit does not immediately conjure up images of an elegant ensemble suitable for your next event, but it's time to change that idea in your head. Enter this beautiful green forest created by Camilla & Marc. Both the trousers and the jacket have a distinctive athletic vibe, but both have a refined aesthetic that makes them seem appropriate for a more elegant occasion.

    The key to dressing something that is quite sporty and making it work for a function are its accessories. In this case, this sweatsuit definitely requires a declaration slip to elevate it. I have rediscovered these Aquazzura heels recently and I could not resist combining them with this outfit. Snake skin adds a nervous touch while the straps give them a strong focal point and provide the ideal contrast to the simplicity of the jacket and pants.

    A simple pair of classic sunglasses seemed to be the perfect choice not to dazzle the look, while I kept my jewelry to a minimum, sticking to a solitaire gold bracelet to add an elegant final touch.

    Since entering the scene in 1954 with the help of Coco Chanel, tweed has become the most sophisticated and timeless fabric in women's clothing. The famous material imported directly from Scotland - characterized by its peculiar textured texture and that unmistakable mixture of threads - would remain forever associated with the figure of the French designer and her classic jacket with straight and flowing lines.

    The most representative garment is the tweed jacket. Far from straitjackets, this epitome of sophistication and sobriety has managed to adapt to new trends and associate with items as relaxed as jeans.

    Do you have an unavoidable label appointment? A meeting for which you want to pull sophistication and originality? Then you'll find your perfect ally in the tweed skirt.

    Who said tweed was not sexy? That a material is classic, sober and warm, does not imply that it lacks sensuality and attractiveness. It is only know how to combine it with garments that accompany and complement according to your style and needs.

    Jacket Chanel
    Independientemente de modas y tendencias hay dos básicos que nunca deberían faltar en el armario de cualquier mujer, y más ahora en entretiempo: un bolso de piel acolchado y una chaqueta tipo Chanel.

    Y ya que hablamos de estas dos prendas tan emblemáticas de la casa Chanel, no viene mal un poquito de cultura de moda:

    – El bolso acolchado del que hablamos es el modelo Timeless, una reinterpretación que hizo Karl Lagerfeld en los años 80 del bolso más icónico de Chanel: el mítico 2.55 (debe su nombre a que fue creado en febrero del año 1955). Lagerfeld le añadió la doble CC en el cierre y la tira de cuero entrelazada a la cadena, y así surgió el Timeless tal y como lo conocemos hoy en día. Es considerado por muchos como uno de los bolsos más bonitos, elegantes y prácticos de la historia de la moda

    – La chaqueta Chanel es otro de los emblemas de la Maison francesa. Creada en 1954 está confeccionada en tejido de tweed; consta de cuatro bolsillos y un ribete con una fina cadenita que le proporciona una caída perfecta. Una apuesta de Coco Chanel por prendas más fluidas, de líneas rectas y minimalistas.

    Y ambos, por sorprendente que nos parezca hoy en día, fueron creados con intención liberadora: el bolso para liberar a la mujer del engorro del bolso de mano, y la chaqueta para proporcionar mayor libertad de movimiento.

    Son prendas eternas y atemporales, símbolo de clase y elegancia. Tener alguna de ellas sería como tener un gran tesoro para toda la vida

    To think of tweed is to think of a classic: jacket suits. This fabric takes you to the mythical moment when Coco Chanel made this piece a legend of fashion and an icon of the liberation of the feminine wardrobe since the jacket was, originally, a masculine garment. The best of the classics? They are a safe bet and the suit jacket is always an infallible option if it is about elegance.

    Tones vary, and go through all ranges, this piece is ideal for spring or autumn, when temperatures are generally more pleasant. Chanelita, as it is known in the world of fashion, brings the most glamorous touch to the simplest looks, such as a blouse and jeans.

    You can bet on the total look and we have heels to look sophisticated. But dare more and change the traditional concept of this garment wearing a jacket and shorts set with white sneakers.
