Jackets and your body type

Hi again! I had a small absence caused by some technical problems with the blog, maybe you realized that, the thing is that sometimes I feel that technology exceeds me! But any way, I am back!!

Meanwhile I was struggling with my computer, we change season so for you on the north spring arrives and for us on the south autumn is here!! Thank God, honestly I prefer cold weather, although this summer was not as hot as last year, but is good to start using sweaters and coats.

Since, both climates are quite fresh, today I am going to talk about jackets or blazer, what ever you want to call them. I am going to tell you which jacket fits better with your body type, because, believe it or not all depend on the length, the shape but especially the number of buttons.

In general there are only three body types, and to make it easy I am going to explain it like this: people with full lower hips and bottom, people with shoulders wider than your hips, and people who has a balance between their hips and shoulders.
Do you recognize your group? Even if you put on weight or get thinner your body shape will prevail. But you know what is the good thing? That we can always find clothes that fit our body, it doesn’t matter the shape. So let’s talk about jackets.

For the body that is wider at the bottom (triangle):

• The length has to be at the hip, or not longer than half of your bottom, never longer. If you believe that something long will make you thinner, sorry to tell you, but it makes exactly the opposite effect! Unless you are using an “A” cut long jacket.
• Three buttons is ideal with short and wide lapel. Avoid using one buttons jackets.
• Since the point is to increase volume in the upper part, use pockets, flowers, shoulder pads, everything helps.

For the body that is wider at the top (inverted triangle):

• Avoid slim jackets.
• The ideal is 2 buttons, if you use 1 button it has to be just under the waist. Short and narrow lapel.
• Avoid wide and short jackets and sweaters, also everything Mao.
• Use belts under your bust; avoid anything on your waist.
• Since the objective is to make thinner your upper part, avoid shoulder pads, pockets, etc.

For those who has a well-proportioned body (sandglass):

• The coat must reinforce your bodyline.
• You can use 1, 2 or 3 buttons.
• The length has to be no longer than the hip.
• Belt has to be at your waist.
• Avoid square and oversized jackets; both will hide your silhouette.

So, this is all you have to know now, enjoy the change of season and use the perfect jacket for your body, I am sure you will notice the difference.

As always, if you have any doubt or comment please let me know.

See you soon!!


Change your look, get what you want!

We live in a world where the physical appearance is more important every day, in order to be “beautiful”, women have to be skinny, tan and look always young.

Honestly, I disagree with that, maybe I am against the flow but I am convinced that beauty is more than that. We don’t have try to be “perfect” and end up looking all alike. That is not pretty at all!

For me, one of the greatest miracles in life is that diversity exists! Thank God! We are different from each other, imagine how boring will be if we were all the same! … Especially if all of us conceived beauty in the same way … we will all fight for the same! As Sheldon will say … “The Horror!”

Individuality is our best gift, we all are different and we all have a special beauty that makes us unique. Everybody is different, even twins are different form each other, so … why everybody is trying to copy the beauty parameters of the others? It is much better to develop our attractiveness learning how to look beautiful in every situation.

Here in Manequi, I offer you the chance to find your own style based on your personality, your physical appearance and your life style. All those things will have an influence in the way you look, I can show you how to look gorgeous at anytime even if you are at work, if you go shopping or if you are taking care of your family.

“People treat you the way they see you”, sad … but true, people judge you by appearances, and sometimes, that could stress us and make us fall in the game of “being as everybody else”.
Relax there is no need to do that, you can be yourself, and be accepted because society also celebrate originality and authenticity. The only thing that you have to do, is to find the best way to be yourself and that could be done if you know which are the best clothes for your body, which colors are better for your face or even what haircut will make you look more beautiful.

So, today I am launching the Online Image Consulting service where I will give you a complete analysis of your style, the best clothes for your body and every single aspect that you need to know in order to be the best version of yourself.

If you buy the Online Image Consulting service, you will have a document that will be useful for all your life since remember, our body structure doesn’t change even if you put on, or if we loose weight. It will be a great investment and a chance to have that image that you want to project.

Here I show you some pictures of one of my clients. As you can see, she really changed just by using the proper clothes and the right haircut. As you can see, she even look thinner, well she is thinner but her other clothes made her look bigger.

Observe that her transformation was internal and external, her attitude is different she looks more happy and self-confidence.

Outfit to go to the movies (before and after the image consultancy)

Outfit to go out with friends at night

Outfit to stay at home

You see? There is nothing to loose, you just have to decide to make the change!!!

See you soon!


Oscar night

As every year, the Oscar night is the event where celebrities and designers join forces to create great looks. In fact, the awards ceremony is usually fun but the fashion looks can be observed at the beginning of the show at the red carpet that is usually as expected as the show itself.

From my point of view the best dresses were the following:

Natalie Portman, Oscar winner for best actress, she looked amazing, although she is 8 months pregnant. This is a great example of how even if you are pregnant you can look amazing! The purple color and the Swarovski crystals on the top create a very feminine dress. The designer is Rodarte and please check out the earrings from Tiffany, this model is something that you will see very often, so much that even the TNT presenter has a very similar pair.

Michelle Williams, nominated for best actress, had a dress by Channel, a very elegant and feminine design, and she looked amazing especially with that haircut, it looks better on her this length that the other that was longer.

Gwyneth Paltrow, was a performer, have you heard her signing? She has a nice voice! She had one of the best dresses of the night, the designer was Calvin Klein, it was a metallic dress that makes her look amazing and with that cleavage the dress looks very sexy. Look the belt with the brooch Louis Vuitton. Some people say, from what I’ve read today that her dress was horrible, I just loved it, I leave the final opinion to you …

Halle Berry, as she usually do, create a very special look for the night, perfect match with the color of her skin. The designer is Marchesa and the dress is all crystal-encrusted.

Jennifer Houdson, keeps surprising me since she lost so much weight! Look at her, in this amazing orange dress Atelier Versace. You have to agree with me that she look so much better like this than before no?

Mila Kunis, I am sure you remember her because the TV show named “That 70’s show”; she used an Elie Saab Haute Couture (dress made specially to her), in lavender. It was a very feminine look due to the details of laces. Little too feminine for me, but very sexy!

Cate Blanchett, she has a very different and original dress by Givency Haute Couture, the style is very similar to the style of and Argentinean designer named Trosman who use very similar material. I loved Cates’ dress, specially the back, because is just sexy and different, and well, she always look very sophisticated.

Nicole Kidman, I honestly hate this dress. I mention it here, because I was surprised about her election, the color, the design, nothing was good for her. The strange thing is that she usually dresses very elegant. Something that was not that bad in her look was her hair and the necklace.

Scarlett Johansson, was amazing in that dress, the color was great, her hairstyle, everything. I specially loved the back of the dress; as you can see it is very feminine, very Scarlett, don’t you think? The designer was Dolce Gabbana.

And last but not least, I leave you with the best dress that Anne Hathaway used during the night, the designer was Tom Ford and I think it is amazing the mix of the laces and the crystals, just great!

As you can see, it was a night full of fashion and of course movies, I hope your favorites won … although I think the award ceremony was quite predictable, don’t your think? Almost all the winners already won at he Golden Globe, so the real intrigue was gone, … don’t you think? Which dress do you like the most?

See you soon!
