Hi Giulia. For a Summer formal ceremony I suggest you wear a nice simple strapless dress, reaching the knees, with a black, blue or grey blazer on top (it depends on what colour is the dress). As for shoes, go either for ballet flats or simple pumps (but remember, don’t exaggerate!). So, you can have a sophisticated and professional look during the ceremony, and you are ready for the after- party!
Dear Stephanie, I’m a curvy girl. Can I wear a pair of shorts anyhow without looking like a whale!?
Yes! You don’t have to be super-skinny to wear a pair of shorts. You obviously can’t wear hot-pants, but you need to find the right length! If you are very curvy, it would be better to go for trousers reaching the knee, but the best thing to do is to try them on and look at yourself in the mirror. If you feel comfortable in them and you think they don’t make you look fatter or ugly… Bingo!
Hi Stephanie, I have some doubts! I am tall, 1m 76, and I love high heels, but I’m always quite hesitant in wearing them because sometimes I feel out of place and everyone watches me, so much so that my height seems to me almost a flaw. Do you think that a girl looks good with high heels or just ridiculous?
There are many sayings in Italy regarding height, the most famous says that “height is half of the beauty”. And that is true! A tall girl often looks more beautiful than a short one, even if she hasn’t got the sweetest face or the hottest body. I think your biggest problem is that you feel insecure and you don’t want to stand out because you think that everyone will watch you and judge you. That is absolutely not true! You have to be proud of your height and wear whatever you like. The only think I will say to you is: how lucky!
Hi everyone. I am a pair-shaped girl and I always have troubles in finding clothes that suit me. What kind of dresses would look good on me!?
Hi Dear. The best solution are the imperial-cut dresses, those that are tight on the waist and then float down softly on the hips, hitting just above the knees. Try not to draw the attention on your bottom-half, but enhance your top-half, with low necklines, necklaces and bright colours.
