Since then retro has remained an inspiration in today’s trends including fashion, furniture, house designs, packaging, art, interior design and much more. Due to its history, the retro style became iconic throughout the years, and it has never really gone out of style.

Fashion history

Best Tips for Buying Camisoles

Camisoles are an essential wardrobe staple that should have a place in every wardrobe. Camisoles can be used for everyday clothing, formal clothing and even nightwear or pyjamas. Historically, the world camisole was once used to describe an over shirt worn by men and women over everyday outfits. Today, “camisole” is a catch-all term used to describe under-shirts which range in style, material and price. Modern camisoles have multiple uses. They can be used for modesty, such as under shirts with sheer material that would otherwise show skin or undergarments. They can be used for aesthetics, such as ensembles with layered garments or with the addition of accents like lace, beading, jewelled accents, etc. They can also be used to add additional warmth, which is especially important in colder climates.

Many people believe the impression that there is only one type of camisole—a sleeveless tank top, usually with spaghetti straps, with plain or no details at all. But there are actually different types of camisoles and different aesthetic and practical features that can be used to suit just about any wardrobe or necessity. The following are some helpful and useful tips for buying camisoles, whether you are buying them for everyday use, a formal occasion, or to supplement your nightwear wardrobe.

Tip: Know what type of camisole you need

Why are you buying a camisole? When you know what type of camisole you need, it will make it much easier to narrow down the selection before you make a purchase. When you consider the type of camisole you might need, think about the following factors:

What clothing you will be wearing over the camisole (e.g. a sleeveless dress, a cardigan, a short-sleeved tank top with a plunging neckline, etc).

Why you need the camisole (ex: sheer shirt or dress fabric, for decoration/aesthetics, for warmth, etc).

What colour of clothing you will be wearing over the camisole (dark colours, light colours, sheer fabric/not sheer fabric, etc?).


For example: If you are buying the camisole to wear underneath a light pink summer tank-top that is slightly sheer, you should look for a camisole with straps that will not show underneath the tank top (such as spaghetti-style straps) and one with a colour that will not contrast too sharply with the tank top. Tip: Look for camisoles that will last—even if they cost a little extra.

There are plenty of camisoles to choose from if you are on a budget. However, resist the temptation to buy camisoles that are not only low in price but low in quality as well. Camisoles of a poor quality will need to be replaced more often than a camisole of better quality that is only a few dollars extra, and they often offer less warmth, are made with more sheer fabric, and tear or rip easily. For the best deals, look for quality camisoles on sale or on clearance – you can often find good camisoles on sale during the fall and winter seasons.

Review of the Oscars

Once more, the event of the year makes the headlines of every paper, magazine and website. The news not only talks about the “big winners” and “big losers”, for only this ONE time, they also gossip about the outfits and jewellery. That is the moment when STYLE receives the importance it deserves. We’ll take a look at the protagonists of the night and give our very own awards to best and worst dressed. I have been listening to and reading LOADS of info about everything on the Oscars, so now I’m MORE than informed to get to it.

To start this review of the Oscars, I would like to “undo” things a little. This is absolutely out of protocol, but I’m going have to start with men. There’s not really much to say about them, but I feel the need to stand up in behalf of all men and tell the world that we GUYS know how to dress and can look as good —or sometimes better than the girls. But this year was no different, and tuxedos were all over the place —perhaps a homage to Happy Feet. These four guys below were the only ones that actually looked elegant to me on their ever-lasting blazers. They are the living proof of man elegance.


Leonardo DiCaprio looks always GREAT in his Armani tuxedo, but this time Clive Owen and Ryan Gosling joined him. I have no idea —yet— of what the two of them are wearing, but I don’t think we’ll be surprised anyway. This said, we can proceed to women’s wear. This time the ladies have kept it kind of simple —no big bows or huge flares. And, well, I really missed Angelina Jolie and Charlize Theron who always look über-stunning. But this has been, by far, the most elegant Oscars gala ever, like in the OLD times! Here we go with THE dresses. Of course, the Queen of the night, Helen Mirren, looked SO sexy at 70. She wore a gorgeous and very elegant Lacroix in champagne and glimpses of silver and Chopard jewels. This lady has pure elegance running through her veins; she would have even looked stunning with in a tracksuit “à-la-Paris-Hilton”.

Apart from the last-moment problems with her Galliano —which has created a whole new level of pointless gossip in Spain, Penélope Cruz really pulled it off with an amazing pale pink Versace culminated on the bottom with feathers in the same colour and ALSO Chopard on her ears and wrist. But we could notice her last-minute change in her make-up and hair, which obviously were not meant for that dress. One way or another, she looked gorgeous. Lady-in-red Nicole Kidman decided to keep a confusing low-profile this time and wear a red-Valentino dress with a bow on the neck which was actually Balenciaga. I have to admit that even when I don’t really like her, she does look great in that gown. Red is THE colour for this coming season and looks très bien on her. Vera Wang was responsible for Rachel Weisz’s SUPERB dress, the diamond lace looked just amazing both with the rest of the jewels and the dress, which also matched her skin tone perfectly. You can also notice a mixture of fabrics and shines in the bottom back. It really came as a surprise to me that the dress was Wang, but it was a great surprise.


Beyoncé Knowles wore a gorgeous Armani Privé with marine inspiration and a hUUUge split. That’s too bad for Armani that it looked like all three Destiny’s Child had squeezed into the gown. Poor Giorgio —I’m sure he fainted backstage. Pregnancy has left Maggie Gyllenhall in very good shape and so, she looked really stylish in the black & blue Proenza Schouler that she chose. The colour was VERY S/S 2007 and the style kind of make me think of Armani, don’t know why though. Chanel dressed up Babel’s Rinko Kikuchi in a fantasy of glitter and black and provided her with fantastic jewellery too. There’s no need to explain Chanel; it’s just CHA-NEL. Blonde over the blondes, Gwyneth Paltrow premièred her even longer hair and wore a Zac Posen gown which looked just unbelievably GREAT on her! Looks like the Greek vibe once brought in by Gisele Bünchen when she was still with Leo DiCap is always a good choice and creases are never demodé.

Last year’s winner for Best Actress, Reese Witherspoon, kicked-off her new bachelorhood turning from angel to goddess with the Nina Ricci dream-dress she picked up. Her beauty speaks for itself.And last, and probably LEAST too, Jada Pinkett Smith, who was apparently very CONFUSED, thought it was Halloween, so she went for a Carolina-Herrera “Oscar costume”. Is she going to start giving away the “black-Oscars”?, that would be fun. In the meantime, we can enjoy her indescribable look. Stay tuned for our very own awards list!
