You are what you wear

Silhouettes have changed through history, as well as the concept of beauty. The Little black dress is a garment that almost every woman if not all have one in their closets. I have two with different silhouettes. One is a wrap dress, with spaghetti straps and a ruffle that falls from one shoulder through my chest becoming part of the wrap, the other dress has puffed sleeves and is fitted, it has a high waist and a midi skirt more like a pencil skirt. I can wear this one with a slim belt. They both shape my body in a different way. I wear one or the other depending on what story I want to tell that day if I am feeling sexy, feminine and pretty or if I want to just be comfortable. I can wear them both with a biker jacket It´s both masculine and feminine, it´s genderless. You can put these two pieces together and you will have a powerful feminine look and a disruptive one, it’s a mix and match, you are communicating many things, softness, and disruption, that you are not bounded to cultural codes. With both pieces, you can fully express your identity.

Both the biker jacket and the LBD are timeless, contemporary garments that every woman should have in their closets. They are versatile and will never be understated.

Clothes and how we dress are a physical representation of our perceptions, dissatisfactions, and our desires. If the outside appears a certain way the inside must match.

What we wear can reveal more from our emotions than we could possibly think. Clothing is a form of self-expression, it tells the world who we are. It reveals more about our internal life than you realize.

Think about what you have in your closet, it is the window to our internal selves. When we go into someone´s closet what they have in there tells us a lot, if they are they hiding, if they want to stand out or simply they are trying to express who they really are. But you have to be careful, there has to be a connection between what you wear, your style and what you want to tell the world. We need to ask ourselves, ¿am I really communicating who I am? , ¿Am I hiding using clothes as a distraction?

Getting to know your body, what parts do you like and dislike will be helpful in order to choose the silhouette that best suits you, and the ones you need to discard because a shape can transform your body in any desired way. It depends on what you want to tell the world.
