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…

How to dress women with shapes
A huge number of articles have been written about how to dress women with shapes. I do not have any philosopher's stone, thanks to which I can authoritatively state that…
