Back to the basics
Every image consultant and personal stylist knows that to build a perfect wardrobe there are a few simple rules to follow. The first thing to do is to establish a strong foundation, made by basic and classic garments that allow endless possibilities of combination. These garments can be combined trendy pieces of the current season. The minimal style, a more androgynous look and an ultra-feminine classic one are the perfect starting point to create your own personal style.
The collections of designers such as Armani, MM6 Maison Margiela, Alexander Wang, Michael Kors, Miu Miu and Blumarine propose simple pieces, easy to wear, with a chromatic palette limited to a few basic colors like black and white, neutral and a slight hint of brilliant or sophisticated touches. The lines are clean, the most classic pieces and those stolen from male wardrobe come to the forefront.
Follow our guidelines to create the basis of your wardrobe with these three unfailing outfits that focus attention on the quality of fabrics and essential lines for a sophisticated and elegant allure
From Nordic minimalism to Japanese-style essentiality, the minimalist look is always a winner. It features straight shapes, clean and simple lines, attention to small details and quality fabrics. White, black and gray, a very “zen” matching, can be enlivened with a touch of bright colors, but it must be handled with care.

Since the Nineteenth century, women have been fascinated by man’s wardrobe and started to borrow not only ideas and inspiration but also garments, like jackets, trousers and coat. Today, the androgynous look is still fashionable and, if properly calibrated, can emphasize the femininity of the female body. For a dinner, a business meeting or a special evening, the jacket and trousers suit in black will be certainly stylish and will give you a slightly mysterious allure.

To add a touch of femininity to your style, there is nothing better than a look inspired to the 50s and 60s, when tweed jackets created a gentle and sure elegant effect, skirts had a line that emphasized the body, femininity was granted by heeled pumps and coordinated handbag. The classic pieces combined together will be sophisticated, but they can also be matched to jeans or a sports shoe to be more modern.
