The Personal Style of Costanza Pascolato

5 Jan

I aspire to be half as stylish and elegant as Italian born, Vogue contributor, Costanza Pascolato, when I’m 80.

There’s a lot we can take for inspiration, from observing how Costanza dresses and styles herself.

She keeps her canvas very simple – generally in slim black pants and top, but then decorates them with a great jacket, lovely shoes, statement jewellery (Did you notice her skull ring?) and over-sized sunglasses.   And then of course, there’s her signature coiffed hair.  (I’ve also noticed she always wears the same shade of lipstick.)

About aging, on Garance Dore’s site, Costanza was quoted as saying..

“I am a lucky person. All women in my family were strong and positive. They taught me to accept aging. But of course, they were intelligent, elegant, and my mother was very beautiful. The new generation follows their examples: my daughter Consuelo is 50 and looks great. And Alessandra is 48 and looks much younger than her age. We all have a sense that life is a privilege. So we treat our bodies (and souls) gracefully. I do a lot of exercise, eat well etc., but I do not try to look much younger than I am. I only want to look the best for my age, and that, happily, makes me stay away from anxiety.”

It’s Not What You Wear, It’s How You Wear It

I might take two girlfriends shopping – both of them could try on the same dress and decide to buy it.

One would wear it to work with a blazer and pumps, in her classic style and the other would wear it casually to meet her friends at a cafe, in a pair of flat sandals and her denim jacket.

It’s not what you wear, it’s how you wear it.

A simple shirt can be worn many different ways. (Demonstrated beautifully by Carolyn Bessette Kennedy above) As can a pair of chinos or a trench coat.  A scrunch here, a fold or a button up there.  Even a little tweak, can make an impact.

It’s up to you to interpret each piece of clothing from your wardrobe in your own way.

Style At Any Age

14 Oct

I took some time off last Friday to spend the afternoon with my Mum and Dad in the country. It was my Mum’s birthday. I bought her a pair of white boyfriend jeans and after we’d been to lunch we went home and played around with some ways she could wear them.

She didn’t have any white bottoms in her wardrobe so they added something fresh and different and gave her quite a few new outfits. This was one of the combos we put together.

(While she will wear the jeans cuffed they’re a little bit long and need taking up – but you get the gist)

For anyone wondering whether they are too old to wear…

1. A leather jacket
2. White jeans
3. Boyfriend jeans
4. Sneakers

Mum’s 75!

Mum’s wearing..

You’re Never Too Old To Wear…

..leather.

Just like anything, it’s not what you wear, it’s how you wear it.

When you’re clear about your personal style and the image you want to portray, you’ll be able to wear a piece (a leather jacket, boyfriend jeans, ankle boots, etc) your own way, to work for you – according to how you want to look.
