The T-Shirt message

Very "trending" this year, the T-shirt or sweat-shirt message is the ideal piece for adding a little twist to a boring basic. And No it is not for "teenagers-only" and Yes you can wear it even if you are up to 40 something old... How? Play it chic, not too sporty.  For instance: tuxedo jacket + slim or boot-cut jeans, very nice and cool with a pencil skirt as well. One last thing: the message, choose one you really like and fits your personalty!

"Made in Italy": the sunglasses.

It's very "cliché" but yes indeed, Italians truly are sunglasses lovers! They wear them all the time, I mean even if: the weather is not sunny, indoor or late evening. The "spectacles and sunglasses question" is something to take seriously and the Milanese really pay attention to design. We are sometimes  attracted by a style or a shape of sunglasses that might not be the best choice to embellish our face...  So here are some tips on how to choose the right pair.

  1. Oval: most shapes and styles will suit you, except extreme geometric designs. 
  2. Square or rectangle: look for lightweight oval or rounded styles. Avoid square or rectangle shapes wich will emphasize the angles of your face.
  3. Round: frames that are slightly wider then your face will make it seem smaller. Square or rectangular frames balance a round face but avoid round shapes and full,  frameless lenses.
  4. Inverted triangle: the frames should not extend beyond your temple.
Actually there are more visage shapes than 4 but this is enough to understand the main rules. Now that you know them check out my selection "made in Italy" from the most cutting edge sunglasses designers: IllestevaretroSuperfuture , Spektre and pick your favorite one!



Tomorrow, Jane Birkin is in Milan for her concert. I am, needless to say,  quite excited to attend this event!
