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…

How to wear a voluminous sweater
It happens that attempts to buy a fashionable bulky sweater end on the assumption (quite fair) that it will not fit even under a loose coat or parka. "Well, when…

How to wear a trench coat

Тhe subject of clothing for the cold spring weather, unfortunately, contributes. Yesterday I sat on Tverskaya Boulevard and watched the girls pass by. Half of them were wearing trench coats. And 90 percent of that half looked very, very depressing. The “secret” of the image of a poor simpleton is simple (I think if they were shooting a modern version of the story of Eliza Doolittle right now, the Professor would find the heroine in this form): ballet flats, a pencil skirt and a fitted, short, belted and buttoned trench coat on top. At the same time, the trench is shorter than the skirt by 15-20 centimeters. Unfortunately, I did not find such a photo in the network, and I do not think it is correct to take photos on the phone or withdraw them from social networks. Continue reading

What does it mean to mix styles (and how to do it correctly)

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).

The longer the better: outerwear that can’t be short

Well, it can’t. Maybe, of course. And it happens. And sadly, there are a lot of coats on the streets, stretched high on the chest, raincoats, which immediately under the belt are bulging diverging floors, and down jackets, combined with jeans on the hips, producing an unforgettable sausage effect. But now, at the change of season, I have a special hope that at least some of these lonely things will go on a well-deserved vacation without paying severance pay. Continue reading
