Playground for sexiness: the back décolleté

Display your back!

I remember reading that when dressing to kill, you should always accentuate your strong points – be it legs, cleavage, your arms. I think the back is something where basically any woman can score points. A smart back décolleté is at least as sexy as showing a lot of cleavage, because it leaves wiggle room for the imagination. Cut out, sheer lace, back slit or completely open back – the options are endless!

The days are warm and you have a business meeting?

A casual business outfit for summer in white!

You have business to attend to, the temperatures are up and you don’t know what to wear? For a casual business outfit in summer, I opted for white cropped trousers, a classic white shirt and taupe heeled sandals. It makes for a smart, clean look that is airy and easy-to-wear. As much as I love skinny pants, I think it’s time to go for other cuts for my trousers. I have missed the slight flare  that was trendy a good 10 years ago. The taupe sandals add length to my little stature (1,60 m).

Slightly, oh so slightly…

As you can tell I am not the very frilly girly type and prefer simplicity in my outfits. I do have to be careful not to go too masculine at times, when I look at pics from a couple of years ago, I realize that feminity was not my priority! As I hit 45, I  realized it’s taking more work to look good and feminine. I went through my closet and tossed out all clothes that I had been hoarding for years. As much as I love expensive brands and clothes, the harder it is for me to let go of it and the longer I wear it. So I turn to trendier afforable brands, of which there is an abundancy. I especially love all that is french! I try to take new trends and adjust them slightly to my style.

 

Shopping info:

Trousers: Zara

Shirt: Benetton

Sandals: Unisa

The perfect dress when you have no waist!

 

The oh-so apple shaped woman!

Finding the perfect dress that suits your shape is a toughy! The cutest skater dresses, flary waisted skirts, roman goddess dresses – all so beautiful! But when you don’t have a waist, like me – the outcome is frumpy, shapeless.  Also they really call attention to your non-existent waist.

I love flowy designs, but since in addition to having no waist I’m also short, so I prefer wearing short dresses. (Not to mention that long dresses have to go straight to my new best friend, the turkish neighborhood tailor because I live in giant land).

Therefore you can see why this is my new favorite dress, thanks to the broad elastic waist it sits nicely giving the illusion of having a waist. The abundant top part of the dress does not cling in the wrong places.  The flowy material and light print make it easy to combine for different looks. I can imagine a fringy jacket, or ankle boots with this baby.

If there is one brand out there that has my name on it, it would have to be ba&sh. Their clothes are effortless chic, easy to wear and style with just a touch of bohemia. And the best part: their dresses and skirts accomodate basically every figure. Ba&sh has wonderful prints and uses very unusual fabrics to enfance their cool elegant style.

Here is the link to my dress:

Unusual, electro-tune with an interesting rythm. The 80’s come to mind, but it’s more layered than the flat synthesizer sounds we know from then.  When I listen to this, my strides get that little more self-confident!

Denim, basics and white belong in every wardrobe! Gone are the days where comfort was the only prerequisite for a weekend outfit. White jeans, the concession to comfort here is that they are not skinny, combined with just about anything makes for a clean sporty look. Combined with my mao-collar denim shirt and a white tank top, it makes me want to run around all day with my kids! Oh, and as always, where I go, my Ornitsuka Tigers go.

Off-the-shoulder is a super feminine trend, and so many variations are out there. If you’re like me and don’t like it too girly then combining off-the-shoulders with straight trousers and runners takes out some of the “girliness”!  The shoulders are a body part that anyone can show off! As always I prefer toning it down and keeping it casual. The blouse (Zara) combines the off-the-shoulders and blue and white stripes which always makes for a clean look. The slim trousers  (H&M) and are a nice alternative to the ever-lasting skinny look.  Actually I am very glad there are finally cool alternatives to sausagey legs and butts! And my runners (Adidas) are just like old pals!

At first there is only the anticipation of how good it will feel. The right music is on and the running app started. After the first couple 100 of meters, my mind and body decide if this will be a good run. Am I fit today? Am I relaxed?  Any muscles tightening unnecessarily? After the fresh energetic start, the body says “slow the hell down!” and my true bodily fitness sets the pace. Always remembering to look up and ahead, keeping a relaxed face and half smile, with some luck the ease sets in. That’s when I let my mind wander.

Style blogging is a retrospective exercise for me. I certainly do have a style of my own, but it varies with how I feel and how I want to be seen by others. I love mixing nuance soft tones of different colors and textures. Denim and silk, leather and wool, grey with beige, gold and soft brown. The grey wool coat has a nice stiffness to it to contrast the flowy silk blouse. My style goal is to blend into the background, – latently, intrinsically. I have always hated sticking out, always worried about what others think. After 40, all that goes right out the window! But I am saving my post-40 tirade for future articles.

Burgundy – subtle sophistication http://theslightstyle.com/2017/05/burgundy/ http://theslightstyle.com/2017/05/burgundy/#respond Sun, 07 May 2017 06:05:18 +0000 http://theslightstyle.com/?p=44 Burgundy is deep and warm, easy to couple with many different colors.  Though these pictures are taken in the Munich Spring, you would think “Fall”. Hopefully I’ll be showing some burgundy with summer floral prints and definitely chinos. Trousers (The Kooples), leather jacket (Caramelo), ankle boots (& other stories), handbag (Strenesse) and pashmeena (Accessorize).
