Dress made to measure

Hello!

Thanks to the amazing connections and communities that you can build online, I came across the profile of this super inspirational woman, Betty, and her amazing business, named Betty Concept.

Betty’s idea is to create dresses, made to measure, for every occasions that also empower each woman to express her mood and personality. The idea behind is that the sizes should adapt to the real bodies of women not viceversa!

If you have a look at her dress collection, you can quickly understand that the style she proposes is unique, totally hand-made and sustainable so that you can keep the garment and wear it for long time. It is not a seasonable or some sort of standardized item, quite the opposite: every dress has its own personality!

How does it work? You select the dress you like and choose the color plus specify other things such as the type of sleeves or the lenght, then there is no need for you to pick a size, you place the order right away and when that’s done you’ll be contacted by Betty or her team to take some measurements (most of the time this process is done online via uploading pictures).

The website is in Italian only, but I have seen that Betty ships in many countries so I guess language should not be a barrier to choose the right dress for you and buy it , however if you live in Italy or have the chance to visit the country (when this pandemic will be over) you should definitely pop over to her atelier in Brescia to experience to try on more dresses and get also a personalized consultation.

Personally, I will give it a go with an online personalized consultation, hope you get inspired for your next dress purchase!

Hello! Feet in this season inevitably end up in the spotlight: a joy for many, an authentic tragedy for many others, myself included!

Did you get some inspiration for you next sandals shopping? I hope so πŸ™‚ Leave me your message!

How to wear shorts based on your body type!

Hello ladies! Let’s talk about how to wear shorts and share few tips that hopefully will guide you shopping the right pair for you based on your body type!

  1. High-waisted shorts

If you have a flat tummy and wide hips, high-waisted shorts are ideal. To maximize the effect, you can focus on the top and play with either an oversize tailored blazer or a top with puff sleeves (actually the shirt with puff sleeves is a variant if you want to look more elegant!).

In case your waist is not particularly small you can opt for shorts with floral patterns to help to reduce it.

2. Mini shorts

Mini shorts are ideal for women who are not very tall, that’s because the visual effect ideally lengthens the legs and to create a slim figure , you can wear the with a pair of high-knee boots to get even a slimmer effect.

3. Bermuda shorts

Typically a menswear item, bermuda shorts are actually rising in popularity among women’s too but honestly they fit well only to women with slim build.

If you pair the bermuda short with classic T-shirt you might end up compromising a bit on your feminine look so I would recommend to match bermuda shorts with a tight blouse instead.

Get inspired by the bermuda look Chloe Sevigny wore back in 2000 at the Oscar Nominees party!

4. Biker shorts

Biker shorts are more suitable for muscled and toned type of body, as they are conceived to emphasize your legs. If you want to try them anyway but fitness is not for you, you can match your shorts with a long jacket or an oversize t-shirt.

Get inspired by the bikers shorts look that Alexa Chung wore for the  Victoria Beckham‘s AW20 London Fashion Week presentation in Feb 2020!

Hope you enjoyed my tips for wearing shorts, did you get any inspiration?

Pencil skirts: a must-have in summer 2020!

Hello ladies!

One of the trends of summer 2020 is wearing simple and elegant pencil skirts.

Personally I find this item so classy, timeless and feminine, it actually reminds me of the cinema Divas famous in the 50s such as Audrey Hepburn e Marylin Monroe!

Before presenting you the items I have picked from the summer 2020 collection, I’d start by disputing the clichΓ© that curvy women cannot wear a pencil skirt.

Guess what?It is absolutely not true!

The pencil skirt is a garment that can fit well for women not necessarily skinny, the only trick is to avoid the “vacuum” effect by choosing a skirt which is too tight and completely wrapping. You would need a minimum of ease in movement, and then hinges or slits come in handy because they leave you enough room to walk. Wear your pencil skirt in a simple way, ideally combined with a bralette top or a shirt for the perfect outfit in these hot days!

If you want to slim the figure, you can also play with heels (preferably not too high) or you can opt for dark colors that streamline the lower body, and keep the brightest colors for the top. Now let me introduce you to the pencil skirts I have literally fell in love with! I have chosen 3 different styles to be worn for a wide range of occasions!

Midi skirt in rose print duchesse by Blumarine

SILK GABARDINE PENCIL SKIRT by miu miu

Pencil skirt with buttons by Elisabetta Franchi

Hope you enjoyed this reading! If you’d like more info on these products or more in general any advice on the next pencil skirt to buy, get in touch!
