The best thing about basic types lies in their variability. With these outfits that match with everything, we always become lost in the wide options to choose. Luckily, we have got Inès, who has gone through all phases of fashion by being a supermodel, a designer and a Roger Vivier spokesperson over 30 years. Classic and trend can never escape her sharp eyes and therefore she creates her own philosophy of fashion. And this lady who ruled the fashion industry when she was young is not afraid of admitting getting old now and she claims that being old is a fact but the most important is the harmony of a person from the inside out. Now let’s check out the dressing tips this fabulous lady offer to us in her daughter’s demonstration and you will understand fashion is really not about age.
Inès suggests that trench coat, jeans and casual womens shoes are the basic types in a woman’s closet and they are so simple and convenient that fit everyone. But to wear a trench coat in elegance, you should aim for your own rocking style instead of dressing them covering over a long dress, which may make you look like a dull tower.
According to Inès, boyish look can never go wrong with girls who are pursuing their own unique styles in a casual, chic and comfortable way. You can look as handsome as a boy while retaining the feminine elegance.
In Inès’ eyes, if she can only keep one piece of garment, she will choose white jeans because all fashion roads lead to them and they go with everything with perfect elegance and style, showing your best side and best figure whether you are 16 or 60.
