Often we have a garment that can be worn and styled in many different ways, but have you ever thought about how to wear a shirt and style it differently?
A shirt is such a basic and so classic piece that almost everyone has at least one in the wardrobe, and did you know that it can actually be worn in several different ways? You can even make it look like almost a new blouse!
So I filmed a video with 7 different ways on how to wear and style a button up shirt, showing the same piece worn in different ways, not only in different looks, but also showing you how to style, tie or twist it to create a new way of wearing a shirt. In the number 7, it almost looks like another piece!
• 7 Ways to Wear & Style a Shirt:
I created this video for my Instagram (@manuluize), if you still do not follow me there, I publish several videos of outfit tips and how to combine style your clothes, as well as videos of skin care and makeup.Click here and follow my profile @manuluize, so I had done this video on how to style a shirt for my Instagram and now I decided to share it here too showing in video how to use the same shirt on 7 different ways.
Often we have a piece of clothing in our closet and we do not know that it can actually look like several different looks.
Now you know how to wear a single button-up shirt in 7 different ways! And that’s great to notice how many of the clothes we already own, can be worn in many different ways, creating new outfits without new pieces.
I love a sequin dress, specially when the Holidays are here and a sequin dress can be a must-have for this season! Christmas and New Year’s Eve are just around the corner and to celebrate the holidays’ season in style, nothing better than a stunning sequin dress, right?
So thinking about all the parties for this season, one of the dresses I’ve picked is this stunning champagne and rose gold sequin dress, it’s a short dress and I’m loving it:
Dress: Goddiva | Jewellery: Les Georgettes by Altesse
This dress is in champagne and it has sequins in rose gold, if you’ve been following me here or on Instagram (if not, just click @manuluize and follow me ;) ), you already know I’m loving everything rose gold, so I just fell in love when I saw this gorgeous dress. And that is perfect for the parties!
Being a short dress, I find it so versatile that you can wear to many different kind of parties where you need a beautiful short dress and with one like this, you’re ready to shine.
This dress is from a limited collection designed by Stephanie Pratt for Goddiva, the celebrity got famous for The Hills on the American television and she has been collaborating with the brand and I’m really enjoying this collection that is full of sequin dresses and jumpsuits, aka, perfect for this season!
While I stopped to photograph my outfit, this cute dog at a friend’s house wanted to pose for the photos with me, isn’t she lovely?
And here are some details of my look, accessories also in rose gold to match my sequin dress and a party makeup with a red lipstick (that I love):
Dress: Goddiva | Ring and Bracelet: Les Georgettes by Altesse
I love brown eyeshadows for everything! For my daily makeup or in stronger shades for a party makeup, like I did in this look with a red lipstick (that I love for a glam-party look).
Sequin dress + party makeup and I’m ready for the Holidays! 😍

Elegance, tailoring and sophistication were all on the Maryling runway for Fall / Winter 2018.19 collection, as well as a highlight for monochromatic looks, especially in red and for the elegant plaid patterns.
I went to check out the Maryling fashion show during the Milan Fashion Week here in Milan and here are the main looks and trends chosen by Maryling for the next winter.
• Maryling Fall/Winter 2018.19 at MFW:
Matching the same pattern it’s still a hot trend and it’s also represented by this plaid print for Maryling 2019’2 Fall/Winter season, with the elegance made in Italy.

The college inspiration gains a much more sophisticated look, with a plaid print and 3/4 stockings, in a very adult and elegant look.
Dresses in fine fabrics create a movement and sensuality for the brand’s winter:

A beautiful print to make this winter happier:

Two of my favorite outfits from the Maryling fashion show from the winter 2019 collection, one in red with a beautiful plaid print and one in ton sur ton red outfit. Lately I’m so into the red vibe, and it’s a color that was super present on the Fall/ Winter 2018.19 runways here during the Milan Fashion Week.

The dark and sober tones that can not be missed during the Italian winter, always with overlays, even on the monochromatic outfits:

The new Chiara Ferragni Collection Spring/Summer 2018 collection was one of the collections that I checked during the Milan Fashion Week (S/S 2018), as it’s just as we expected: full of joy, glitter and cool pieces!
• Chiara Ferragni S/S 2018 – MFW:
The new collection of Chiara Ferragni Collection for Spring / Summer 2018 was called Chiara’s Suite and it brings accessories and some casual clothes with glitter, a lot of shine that is already a trademark of the brand, and details with palm trees that bring that summer and vacation feeling to this collection.
Sweatshirts and bomber jackets are part of the new collection of the Chiara Ferragni Collection together with casual accessories like the many different sneakers on the new collection:
Here in a photo with Valentina Ferragni at the presentation of the Chiara Ferragni Collection Spring / Summer 2018 collection during the last Milan Fashion Week:
On the more feminine styles for shoes: models of mules, boots and slippers that bring the logo of the brand stamped and shining. But it’s not only on the shoes but also on some pieces of clothing and on some backpacks:
Do you know that super cool and different kind of item? I’ve got a watch that changes color according to the time and I’m loving it! It’s an Amuda Watch, check out my review on the coolest watch I’ve ever got and understand how it changes its colors.
So how does this watch change color?
It even looks like a normal and super cute watch with a colorful background, but in fact it’s even cooler, because as the minutes and hours go by, the clock background changes color.
Look how it was in some different times:
By the way, this photo I took at the top of San Marino, a micro European state that is in the middle of Italy and it is a super charming place, so this was one of the sights of the city.
And another picture of Amuda Watch’s watch in San Marino at another time, showing some new colors in the background:
Besides being a beautiful minimalist and stylish watch, it is the most fun watch I’d ever had and I LOVED it because it changes color and every time it’s a little different. I can not resist to cool and fun accessories.
Every time I wear it, someone wants to know more about it and loves to see the new background colors from time to time.
But besides being cool accessory, something that I think is even cooler is that from every watch sold, U$ 2 will be donated to the Happy Hippie Foundation, which is an NGO founded by singer Miley Cyrus and whose mission is to fight injustices against homeless young, young people from the LGBTQ community and other vulnerable populations.
And the watch costs U$ 15, with free shipping worldwide, and it’s available like mine with the caramel bracelet or black bracelet, you can buy it here:
For the Spring 2018, the collection of Atsushi Nakashima presented at this last Milan Fashion Week brought us a deconstruction of classic pieces with customizations of zipers that make them super modern and very contemporary pieces.

• Atsushi Nakashima: Spring 2018 MFW
My Spring 2018 season at Milan Fashion Week started with the Atsushi Nakashima fashion show here in Milan, bringing an air of modernity to fashion.
One of the classics of fashion, the trench coat got deconstructed and it gains up to three fabrics and colors in the above look.
Different fabrics and colors in one piece bring asymmetry back to fashion, playing with deconstructed fashion and customizing colors and accessories in a modern way is totally in for the Atsushi Nakashima Spring 2018 collection.
Denim garments are paired with tailored pieces and even the sweatshirt gets an air as a more fashionable and stylish look.
And speaking of denim, it also became the fabric for dresses like this stylish one for the next summer.
Blue, which turned out to be a trendy color already for this Fall/Winter season, especially when in combination with black, it’s probably going to continue here for the next summer:
The play between more sportive pieces and the more sophisticated air creates an elegant collection for the brand’s next summer. Like in this look that makes this sportive combination almost looks like a piece of tailoring.

A lot of shine and glitter in cute combinations while others are more sportive, blogger Chiara Ferragni’s style translates into her collection for her brand in this Fall 2017, which brings shoes, accessories and a few pieces of clothing.
The new collection of the brand brings the cool style of Italian blogger to this collection, the accessories have a cool style and she played a lot with glitter and shiny pieces!
The presentation of the collection took place in a pop-up store here in Milan with the brand’s new collection and a candy store just in front of it.
The photographer David Bruce accompanied me at the presentation here in Milan and he was a bit of a paparazzi to photograph my look at the entrance of this presentation.
Chiara Ferragni stopped at the presentation of her brand to tell a little about her new collection and her inspirations and to give some interviews:
• Chiara Ferragni – Fall 2017.18:
The shoes of the brand bring a lot of shine and glitter in slippers, pointy shoes and boots, either as a pair of shoes covered in glitter or in other pairs with just some jewelry details like the court shoes pair that was at the begging of this blog post.
For the presentation of her new Fall 2017 collection, Chiara Ferragni was wearing a pair of jeans and an embroidered knit, which was completed by a fur and, of course, a pair of shoes from her new collection.
The brand of Chiara Ferragni had started with accessories and now it also includes some items of clothing that were presented during the last Milan Fashion Week, such as jackets, pants and tops:
Look who I met there, the brazilian fashion journalist Lilian Pacce who was also checking out the Chiara Ferragni Fall 2017 Collection:
More glitter on the slippers with the famous eye and mouth designs that are already registered trademarks of Chiara Ferragni:
Fashion editor Anna Dello Russo also stopped by to check out the new Chiara Ferragni collection:
Another collection I checked at Milan Fashion Week was from the italian brand Hanita, which has created a a Fall/Winter collection punctuated by black, red and pink millennial as the main colors of this season. A brand that seeks to keep alive the made in Italy, creating a 100% Italian product.
A young and modern winter was created for this new season of Hanita, the Italian brand was created in 2008 and they always care about having great quality materials and the final garments.
With a presentation at the Grand Hotel et Milan in the Fashion Quadrangle here in Milan, Hanita showed pieces for day and night in this edition of MFW.
Attention to the detail that the fur used in this collection is ecological fur, (as in the leopard coat that opened this post) which is not very common to see at the Milan Fashion Week collections.
This leather jacket was one of Hanita’s Fall 2017 highlights at MFW.
Velvet also showed that the fabric that was in fashion since the previous winter, continues to be trendy another season.
Light tones like millennial pink make this collection elegant and super modern:
One of my favorite pieces of the collection, this beautiful pink skirt:
