Styling highlights for the holiday season
THE FASHION TREND
The motto this holiday season:
November is coming to an end which means that the holidays are that much closer. There is a certain fashion trend that has designers all aflame and it is just right for this time of year. No matter where you turn â€“ it is all sparkles, gloss and glitz! Satin is the leading talent among the fabrics in hues anywhere from copper to gold or platinum to silver. If you like it a bit more subtle, you are going to love the new tops and dresses with interwoven glittering threads! For a lovely combination: wear shimmering pieces with neutral black.

America Ferrera Real Women Have Curves!
America, the Beautiful! America Ferrera brought a much-missed element back onto the TV screen: women with curves! In 2002, the US-American actress made her cinema debut as the lead in "Real Women Have Curves". Four years later, she took to the international stage in the title role of the series "Ugly Bettyâ€œ and became the first Latina to win a Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Comedy Series. That is just one reason among many as to why she looks so radiant on the red carpet. The newlywed America wins everyone over with her confidence and style-conscious outfits. She accentuates her hourglass figure with body-hugging dresses that are both playful and feminine. Ruffles, lace, flounces and puff sleeves define her wardrobe and inspire us to do the same!

BLACK Intense, elegant and mysterious
Okay, we know: technically, black is not a colour as it does not reflect any light. In fashion, however, the non-colour is omnipresent. Yves Saint Laurent once said that a black pullover is all a woman really needs, and ever since Coco Chanel, a wardrobe would be unthinkable without a little black dress. Still today, contemporary fashion designers prove time and again that the tone always looks elegant and flatters every figure. Depending on how black is fashioned, it can be classic, mysterious or seductive ...

Between the HIPS and KNEES
FLATTER YOUR FIGURE
... IS AN AREA THAT MANY WOMEN ARE NOT TOO PLEASED WITH. NOT TO WORRY, BECAUSE THE RIGHT OUTFITS CAN CLEVERLY HIDE STURDIER THIGHS! KEEP THE FOLLOWING TIPS IN MIND WHILE SHOPPING:
UNDERGARMENTS CUTS The proper fit is the most essential factor! This means that you should choose flowing garments that are not too figure-hugging. A-line skirts and dresses are ideal. Tops should drape loosely over the hips and bum.
During the summer, women with sturdy thighs often have a problem with their legs rubbing against each other. Contemporary panties do more than just remedy annoying friction, they also look ravishing!
TOPS Even if you tend to prefer longer jackets, shorter designs are a better choice. They accentuate your upper body and balance out the thighs. For blouses, go long and loosely draped! Wear a comfortable top underneath. MORE TIPS ON THE NEXT PAGE
FLATTER YOUR FIGURE
SKIRTS The famous A-line is fitted at the waist and gradually widens towards the hem. A great cut for flattering your thighs. Straight-cut, knee-long skirts also look great on you. Keep away from calf-length skirts – they make legs looks stumpy.
ACCESSORIES The golden rule for great-looking thighs: your belt, trousers and shoes should always be tone in tone. This visually elongates the silhouette. Dark tights – in contrast to lighter, shiny ones – make for slimmer legs!
TROUSERS Straight-cut, darker trousers with pressed creases are just right for you! For an especially flattering figure, let them lightly drape over your shoes. In contrast, avoid cuffed trousers – they make legs look shorter than they actually are!
DIVERSION Use accessories to guide all glances to your fav favourite areas! Scarves and shawls are a practical winter addition to any outfit. But also a necklace or brooch, an eye-catching blouse, or a fancy neckline are enough to turn heads and any less loved areas then are out of sight and out of mind!

BEHIND THE BRAND
Italian style for feminine curves
ophia Loren, Claudia Cardinale, Monica Bellucci. These are the woman one thinks of when looking at fashion by Elena Mirò. Which is no surprise, considering that the label finds its inspiration in the feminine figures of Mediterranean women. And for exactly these women, the company creates "Italian style".
What that means?
Vitality, intense colours and sweet allure. The most important ingredient for the exclusive fashion from Italy is an understanding of proportions and ultimate comfort. Details put the spotlight on the most feminine parts of the body without compromising comfort. After all, there is a good reason why Elena Mirò refers to the company as the "label for comfortable sizes". Clever cuts and premium materials gently hug curves and exude luxurious charm.

Renate emailed us a great compliment:
"At first, I thought that the magazine needed to be in print so I could actually have it in my hand, but in the meantime, I've gotten used to it. I like being able to click on certain items and order them directly. It is well thought-out."
Ingeborg let us know what she would like to be done differently:
"Many thanks for the informative magazine!!! It's fantastic to flip through and then to be able to go right to the shop to order. Super idea!! My small point of criticism: the texts are too long! By the third page, I don't have the energy / time to keep reading. I would rather have more pictures with short comments."
Jutta passed on a great idea:
"I like the magazine, but it could be more comprehensive. Items that can be purchased should be shown in different outfit ideas. Apart from that, a great idea, congratulations." SHARE YOUR FEEDBACK NOW
