A Year In Style – Part 2

From the skyline view of Frankfurt up to the ancient stone-flagged road of my ancestors village in South Albania… . A year has passed since I am writing posts in this blog, trying to transmit my vision of style as a holistic approach to life. As Giorgio Armani has said it: “Lo stile è gusto e cultura.” (Style is taste and culture).

And with the last picture of the two-part blog post “A year in Style” here my very personal style advice to my female readers: We do not need pants to assert ourselves in a men’s world. If pants, then, when the whole world expects us to appear womanlike such as at a ball … .

PS: The next blog post will be dedicated to my male readers: a lot of street styles from Pitti Uomo Firenze and more.
