As fresh as it looked, the White suit –which was in fashion for spring/summer- was a bit of a downer for those of us who were insecure about of figures. So thanks God! That black makes it comeback this season. As well as making us appears slimmer, black is chic, seductive and mysterious.
And the best news is that this year you do not have to settle just for the “little black dress”. It is hello to full Italian classy style with polo necks, one-shoulder tops, sheer shirts, tuxedo suits and fitted or wide-leg trousers. No matter which style of outfit you choose, black never fails to make a woman look elegant. What better reason to explore your dark side…
Angeline Jolie, Christina Ricci and Catherine Zeta Jones are very rarely seen out of black, be it for casual wear or special occasions, wear elegant dresses and fitted trousers suits.
The fashionable woman this season will be wearing clothes that are unmistakably feminine, but with a masculine touch. Think Cher, Marlene Dietrich or Carrie and Miranda from Sex and the City…trouser suits, wide trousers or shirts and ties teamed with vampy red lipstick, painted nails and well groomed hair.
Tweed, this season, must have fabric, herringbone and pinstripe will be seen in jackets with a feminine cut and wide trousers, and will be teamed with polo-neck jumpers or the classic shirt with double cuffs and cuff buttons. If a complete suit is too much for you, choose wide trousers and team with draped jersey, chiffon or crepe tops and blouses. As well as the glam make-up, do not forget to balance your macho look with womanly accessories of wide belts, the new, slightly larger handbags and heels. Madonna, Nicole Kidman and Charlize Theron have all modeled a masculine suit to showbiz events recently.
