The coloring and flavor
Each person's appearance has its own color: skin color, eyes and hair. The colorist takes them as a basis and finds a palette that is suitable for the individual color…

Magazines: read correctly (and train on autumn trends)
I thought: it can't be that only fashion magazines are to blame for the fact that, following their advice, it is impossible to learn how to dress well and modernly.…

Good — this is new
I will succumb to the magic of simple headlines. "Orange is the new black", "pants are the new dress", "Zara is the new Dior". The latter is ridiculous, but you…

How to wear socks and tights: advanced level

While the weather is nice and cool and dry, it’s time to get sweaters and coats. And shoes on the contrary, do not remove. And in order not to freeze in shoes, you can wear tight tights, and you can — the same tight socks. Last time I showed the simplest combinations, now it’s time to go to a higher level.
Socks can be simple white sports, black, with a bright print, lurex or wool. The main thing is that they look new (it is clear that the hole on the finger of your internal fashion censor and so will not miss, but every time you check the heel for scuffs and pellets will not be superfluous).

Today’s article again risks being the shortest, just like the one about underwear. The topic is extensive, I touch on it in every second article (if not with words, then with examples-pictures for sure) and I’m not going to stop. But we need to be clear.

Things of different styles-this means that each of these things completely belongs to the same style. One-to-one. And the second-to the second. And other things can be neutral-minimalistic. Or belong to one of the first two. Here I am not sure that it is possible to deduce the exact formula: how much and what style to mix with what. (But I’m sure that over time you can learn to see it).

Like a lightning strike

There are many ways to sew ugly clothes: you can take in 2018 patterns from the magazine “Worker” for some 1960 and advertise the result as products of the “author’s Studio”; you can save so much on materials that quite modern models will look like a dull warehouse of humanitarian aid; you can decorate all available surfaces with rhinestones, bows and knitted bouquets. And you can add more lightning.

“We’re getting a dull dress…and let’s add a couple of zippers! And better three-four!”. Continue reading

Socks: instructions for dummies
Thank heaven, socks, unlike tights and boots, are not a fashion staple that you try to touch. No one claims that "every self-respecting woman, if she is already more than…

Recently, someone's column came across the phrase: the boundaries of good and bad taste are determined by everyone individually for themselves and in no other way. It's an obvious idea,…
