What does the classical wardrobe consist of?

Female toilet in the classical style requires a good suit (jacket / trousers or jacket / skirt), several trousers, blouses, shirts, dresses.
  • A jacket is a shortened or fitted jacket, favorably emphasizing the figure. Length and style should be chosen based on the characteristics of the figure. The shoulder line is underlined. The sleeve should not be too narrow, but not wide.
  • Trousers straight or slightly narrower down, with arrows. Do not tighten your hips.
  • The skirt is straight or narrower down, of medium length (just above or just below the knee). A shallow incision is allowed.
  • Blouse or shirt can be both tight fitting and free style. The main thing is to avoid the gross elements: deep decollete, transparent fabrics, magnificent flounces.
  • The dress should perfectly follow the contours of the figure. The length depends on the time of day. In the morning, you should prefer the dress midi (to the knee), and in the evening an excellent image will create a model of the maxi length.
Indeed, today the classic style of clothing is worn by crowned persons, high-ranking officials, politicians and diplomats - people performing representative functions. Their appearance is necessarily conservative and extremely strict. This is necessary to avoid any contradictions and international conflicts.
