Abercrombie Button-Up Satin Cami – Medicine & Manicures
Believe it or not, Abercrombie & Fitch is making a comeback and I’m officially a fan! Today I’m sharing a cute & casual outfit for summer and a few reasons why I’m a fan of this brand.
button-up satin cami (comes in 4 colors) // polka dot pull-on shorts // pearl hair clip // Tory Burch sandals // Gorjana necklace
Last summer I purchased a simple olive tank from A&F after hearing some positive things about their rebrand and was like okay… they do have some cute stuff. A few weeks ago I went shopping for my Greece trip and decided to order a few items online and I was SO impressed, y’all!! I used to wear this brand in high school (didn’t everyone?!) but they’re not about the provocative graphic tees anymore. They have so many cute and casual pieces for great prices and of course I love that they carry petite sizing. I am super impressed with their fabric- everything I’ve gotten so far has felt very high in quality. I recently got this v-neck drapey tee and it is literally SO soft and I’ve already worn it so many times. They run sales a lot so be on the lookout for those and they offer free shipping over $75.
In today’s outfit I’m wearing the button-up satin cami (on sale for under $20) and it also comes in a lace-trim version. These are great to wear now in the crazy summer heat and will carry you into fall to pair under sweaters and cardigans. These pull-on shorts are also super soft and comfy and are only $44… and have pockets! They also come in a linen blend version that are equally as cute.
Camis Under $35

Inslee signs police accountability legislative package | by WA Governor’s Office | Washington State Governor’s Office
The governor signed 12 bills in Pierce County Tuesday
Gov. Jay Inslee signed a dozen bills today that will improve accountability for law enforcement in Washington state, and will create the nation’s strongest police accountability system. The governor, joined by community members and families of those impacted, signed the bills at the Eastside Community Center in Tacoma.
The governor signed legislation that will create an Office of Independent Investigations that reports to the governor, prohibit certain uses of force and will require more thorough oversight requirements for hiring and for reporting misconduct.
“The crises of the past year have unmasked long-standing inequities in our society. The consciousness of our state and nation has been raised against inequity in many forms,” Inslee said. “Our moral mandate to acknowledge these hard truths crystallized in the fallout from the killing of George Floyd in Minnesota, and the killing of Manny Ellis in Tacoma. The bills I am signing today respect these truths and lay a solid foundation to halt inequity’s pernicious influence in our systems of government.”
Katrina Johnson — cousin of Charleena Lyles who was killed in Seattle in June of 2017 —praised the legislation being signed and thanked the governor and state for allowing impacted families to lead in policy discussions, as they are “experts of [their] experience.”
“To the impacted families, take a bow in knowing your loved ones death is not in vain,” Johnson said. “Today, we stand united in strength and bonded together in pain and blood. We celebrate on this bill signing day, and tomorrow it is back to work on implementation.”
House Bill 1267
Included in the package was HB 1267, sponsored by Rep. Debra Entenman, that will create a new office to conduct competent, unbiased investigations of police use of excessive force. These investigations will be required to be truly independent of the involved law enforcement agency. Releasing such investigations from any hint of conflicts of interest will improve accountability, transparency and the public’s confidence.
Last year, the governor convened a task force comprised of these individuals as well as representatives of law enforcement. HB 1267 reflects the recommendations of that task force.
The legislation was made possible due to tireless advocacy of families and communities hurt most by inequitable application of violence.
“This legislation will be complemented by legislation concerning state oversight and accountability of peace officers, requirements for tactics, permissible uses of force and other crucial legislation awaiting my signature today,” Inslee said.
Rep. Entenman thanked impacted families and communities for their continued advocacy.
“The new Office of Independent Investigation will increase transparency and trust in investigations of deadly uses of force by law enforcement. I want to thank the families of victims of police violence who courageously showed up again and again to change a system that provided them with no accountability and no justice,” Entenman said. “Their will to prevent other families from suffering as they have was a source of inspiration and motivation. I also want to thank the Governor’s Task Force, community members, and the Washington Coalition for Police Accountability for helping pass this first in the nation policy. Our premise is simple: police shouldn’t be investigating other police. This new office will help us build trust between the community and law enforcement by ensuring that there is accountability for unnecessary police violence.”
Senate Bill 5051
The governor also signed SB 5051, sponsored by Sen. Jamie Pedersen, which will increase oversight and accountability requirements for the state’s law enforcement and corrections officers.
To increase transparency and accountability, the bill:
- Changes certification and background check requirements for police officers,
- Requires more thorough internal reviews if there is misconduct by an officer, and
- Requires more consistent reporting of such by law enforcement agencies.
Under this legislation, the public may now see the results of internal investigations and know whether an officer was previously held accountable for misconduct.
“The public outcry over a series of high-profile deaths of members of Black, Indigenous, and people of color communities has now led to the most significant new accountability measures in our state’s history,” said Pedersen, chair of the Senate Law & Justice Committee. “The killing of George Floyd, Manuel Ellis, Charleena Lyles, John T. Williams and many others compelled us to craft laws to protect our whole community by limiting police use of force, increasing transparency, and improving accountability.”
House Bill 1054
The killing of George Floyd in Minnesota last year brought a newfound attention to use-of-force tactics employed by law enforcement officers. HB 1054, sponsored by Rep. Jesse Johnson, responds to those valid concerns and establishes requirements for tactics and equipment used by officers.
The bill prohibits chokeholds and neck restraints, restricts vehicular pursuits, and limits the use of tear gas. It creates a consistent statewide standard for these tactics, and provides greater oversight when they are employed by officers.
“Because of the families that turned their unimaginable pain into purpose to provide a trajectory for these bills we would not be here today. But as Katrina Johnson said, we have to keep going. It’s not just a moment, it’s a movement,” Sen. Johnson said. “Meaning we have to remain in momentum, we have to remain vigilant to make sure these policies are enforced on the ground tomorrow. But today, we can celebrate the fact that we came together. Justice is just us coming together to transform the system.”
“Many of these tactics have been used disproportionately against people of color, and are seen as a means of suppression of lawful activities, including free speech,” Inslee said. “This is an important step toward ensuring that all people are treated equally by Washington law enforcement officers.”
Additional police accountability legislation
The governor signed nine additional bills aimed at improving accountability and confidence in law enforcement statewide. Those include:
- HB 1310 (J. Johnson) Concerning permissible uses of force
- SB 5066 (Dhingra) Concerning a peace officer’s duty to intervene
- SB 5259 (Nobles) Concerning law enforcement data collection
- SB 5263 (Frockt) Concerning defenses in personal injury and wrongful death actions
- SB 5353 (Conway) Creating a partnership model that facilitates community engagement with law enforcement
- HB 1088 (Lovick) Concerning potential impeachment disclosures
- HB 1140 (J. Johnson) Concerning juvenile access to attorneys when contacted by law enforcement
- HB 1223 (Peterson) Enacting the uniform electronic recordation of custodial interrogations act
- HB 1089 (Ramos) Concerning compliance audits of requirements relating to peace officers
Rep. Strom Peterson, sponsor of HB 1223, said that this legislation is a first step toward regaining public trust.
“At its most basic, recording interrogations will keep innocent people out of jail and prison. This is especially true when it comes to young individuals who might not fully understand their rights,” said Peterson. “This bill will bring more transparency and accountability to law enforcement, both of which are crucial right now to re-establish trust among the communities they serve.”
“We worked closely with communities who have been suffering violence at the hands of the police,” said Sen. Manka Dhingra, vice chair of the Senate Law & Justice Committee and bill sponsor. “These measures will help keep communities safe by holding officers to the high ethical standards that Washingtonians expect and deserve. They will provide more tools and support to the vast majority of officers who are already living up to these high standards.”
“In some situations, civil liability is a vital avenue for those seeking justice to have their day in court,” said Sen. David Frockt, a bill sponsor. “Changes to standards signed into law today will make our law more rational and fair so that the search for truth can be fully realized, wherever its outcomes lead.”
“Most law enforcement officers are doing a great job and this bill will highlight when deadly use of force incidents are investigated well and procedures are followed through in a professional manner. But it will also show where we are falling short and how we can do better,” said Rep. Bill Ramos, prime sponsor of House Bill 1089. “I was proud to partner with multiple stakeholders including the State Auditor’s Office, law enforcement organizations and advocates, to craft a bill that both, increases accountability and showcases when good work is done. ”
“By collecting and reporting data, we have a critical opportunity to build community trust through transparency,” said Sen. T’wina Nobles, sponsor of SB 5259. “The data captured by Senate Bill 5259 will enable better allocation of resources, and more effective assessment of current police reform strategies.”
“I would remind people where all of this effort has brought us. It has brought us not to the end of something, but to a new beginning,” Inslee said. “All of our work remains ahead of us. Today we celebrate the blueprint this legislation codifies for the people of justice, and now it’s up to us to effectuate it.”

Don’t forget to choose a flat-bottomed foot for the sewing machine. Walking foot is a great alternative to help keep the silk from sliding around while sewing.
- Cutting Tips: Cutting charmeuse requires slightly different method to make the lines smooth and straight. Placing old tissue paper in-between the fabric does help to stabilize the material to achieve accurate shape and measurements when cutting.
- Sewing Needle: For sewing machine, go with 90/12 or 90/14 size for delicate and lightweight material. The fine and sharp needle will leave small holes in the fabric. For any hand sewing, the ideal size is 60/8 Microtex or universal needle.
- Ironing Method: If you are using 100% silk, be careful not to damage the surface. Always iron on the wrong side or use a pressing cloth to assist and prevent the silk from losing the shiny look.
- Puckering Issue: Lightweight satin or charmeuse tends to easily pucker when not sewn correctly. In order to prevent puckering, adjust the stitch length by shorten the setting to size 2.5 length.

90,000 15 style mistakes that most men make
The most common dressing mistakes that most men make.
Unlike socks with sandals, formal and semi-formal mistakes in style can be less obvious, especially if you are a beginner. This article provides a list of the 15 most common mistakes. This knowledge will help you dress better, look smarter, and feel like a million dollars.
Think you don’t make mistakes? Read on to understand this topic.
1. White sports socks
This situation is like a nightmare when we open a sock drawer and find nothing but an endless supply of old sports socks. Why do we hate them? They look cheap, get messy easily, and let’s face it, they don’t go a bit with the suit.
Here’s the takeaway: If you’re not going to play sports, don’t wear white sports socks.
Wear black or brown classic socks under your pants, or better yet, choose a multicolored, colorful pair of socks that show off your personality.
2. Pants too long
Baggy trousers with a leg that are too long are good for two things: they make you look shorter and make you look sloppy.While this option may be acceptable to some, it is already a bit outdated.
So how long should the pants be?
We suggest choosing pants of such length that the bottom of the leg barely slides over the top of the shoe. Alternatively, the pants can be raised even higher, especially if you want to display your stunning socks.
3. Square toe shoes
It remains a mystery to us how these square monsters still end up on store shelves.They are guaranteed to make you look like a 1986 time traveler.
Instead of the ugly square toe, opt for a classic, rounded or moderately pointed toe. Both of these styles have a classic, timeless appeal. When we talk about shoes, it is advisable to buy models made of black or brown leather.
4. Jacket sleeves too long
Jacket sleeve length is an important part of your look.It is very rare to find a jacket that will fit you perfectly without a tailor tinkering. It is even more difficult to find someone who will take the time to adjust the jacket to their shape.
Jacket sleeves should end just above the wrist and leave 1 to 2 centimeters of shirt cuff visible. Any normal tailor can handle such a task with their eyes closed, and it is not at all as expensive as you might think.
5.Too many buttons on the shirt not buttoned
It is up to you to decide how many buttons you need to fasten on your shirt. Of course, it may look strange if you button up your shirt without wearing a tie, but you should not rush to the other extreme.
Never undo more than two buttons. It looks unprofessional at best and downright sloppy at worst.
6. Too baggy shirt
This is a common newbie mistake. A shirt that’s too big will make you look thicker, chunky, and old-fashioned. Simply put, this is not very good.
To get the right size for your shirt, make sure you have no more than two fingers between your neck and collar, that the shoulder seams are flush with the edge of your shoulder, and that excess fabric does not bulge around your waist.
Nowadays, there are many shirt options available to suit the needs of any body type, so you no longer have an excuse for wearing a poorly fitting shirt.
7. There are too many buttons on the jacket
How many buttons to fasten on a jacket?
The answer is simple. Never button the bottom button on a jacket with two or three buttons. This will provide you with increased comfort and natural movement.
You may be wondering why a bottom button is needed at all, if it cannot be buttoned, but some secrets are better left unanswered.
8. Straightened shirt
Yes, we’re not your mom, but please tuck your shirt in. Shirts are designed to be never left unchecked.
Do any shirt need to be tucked in?
This is not necessary at all. If you don’t like the formality of your look, choose a different shirt style that is shorter. But if you are wearing pants or a suit, you should always tuck your shirt in.
9. Visible T-shirt
Like your underwear, the undershirt under your shirt should never be visible. If you like leaving the top buttons of your shirt open, wear a V-neck to keep it hidden.
Previously, a T-shirt was a must-have item of clothing, but nowadays it is better not to wear it at all than to leave it peeking out from under the shirt.
10. Roll-up shirt collar
If you rarely wear shirts, you may not know that each collar has special slots for the so-called collar bones.Regular, inexpensive metal strips are inserted directly into your collar and allow it to hold its shape.
We also recommend that you dry clean your shirts rather than machine wash them. This significantly prolongs the life of the shirt and keeps it fresh.
11. Tie too long (or too short)
This rule for determining the length of a tie gives very little wiggle room: the tip of your tie should lie between the top and bottom of the belt buckle (or in the area where the belt should be if you are not wearing it).
Feel free to take the time to bandage your tie if the desired length was not achieved on the first try. After a short workout, you will get the ideal length almost immediately.
Here are our favorite tie knots from smallest to largest: four in hand, half windsor and windsor. Try each one to see which one works best for you.
12. Tie too wide
If you haven’t updated your wardrobe since 1992, chances are your closet is filled with obscenely wide ties.If so, it’s time for the long-awaited update.
The generally accepted range for tie widths is 2.25 “to 3.25” (5.7 – 8.2 cm). However, each person should choose the size for themselves individually. Consider your body type and lapel width.
13. Incorrect use of a tie clip
We love tie clips. This is a great example of the combination of beauty and functionality.They look elegant and hold the tie in place. However, wearing a tie clip incorrectly can do more harm than good.
First, make sure the clip does not extend beyond the width of the tie. The 1.5-inch clip will look good on almost any tie. Skinny ties can work well with half-inch ties as well as wider ties – 1.5-2.5 inches.
Now that you’ve decided on the width of the clip, place it between the third and fourth buttons on your shirt.If placed higher, it will not be able to hold your tie in the gusts of wind; if taller, it can be uncomfortable when the jacket is buttoned, and besides, the tie will bend forward when you bend over.
14. Belt and braces at the same time
Although suspenders are going out of style, they are still used by many people as an attention-grabbing accessory. Although they are an accessory, they still have a formal purpose. When you wear suspenders and a belt at the same time, your image becomes rather ridiculous, duplication of functions occurs. Avoid this mistake and stay happy.
15. Too many accessories
We love bold accessories and accents, but it’s important not to go overboard. How many accessories can be worn in combination with a classic style? We recommend counting all your accessories – patterned shirt, colorful tie, cufflinks, bracelets, rings, multicolored socks, etc.- and limit their number to 3-4 units. The more discreet your style is, the more accessories will stand out.
Details, details, details
While trends change, many of the style tips in this article are timeless, and the rest will be relevant for years to come. All of these errors are easy to fix with a little attention to detail. After that, you are guaranteed to feel more comfortable and confident.

How to decorate a T-shirt with your own hands: a master class step by step, photo ideas
In the summer wardrobe of any woman there is always a pair, three, or even a dozen cute tops and T-shirts. A crop top or T-shirt made from natural fibers is the perfect garment for the hot season. If you want something new and original, then you can try to decorate the T-shirt with your own hands in an original master class.
How to decorate a T-shirt with your own hands? Master class with step-by-step photo
Method 1 – embroidery
Method 2 – thermo rhinestones, sequins, beads
Method 3 – sew on applique
Method 4 – buttons
How to decorate a T-shirt with your own hands, idea photo
This can be done quite quickly with several ways.
How to decorate a T-shirt with your own hands? Master class with step by step photo
Method 1 – embroidery
If you know how to embroider a little, then this method is for you.We buy a plain T-shirt or topic. We find a suitable pattern for embroidery – small, original, bright. We translate the drawing onto a piece of starched gauze and sew it onto the place of the T-shirt that we are going to embroider. We carefully embroider so as not to pierce the threads of gauze, then pull them out with tweezers. Use a hoop to avoid puckering and skewing of the pattern.
Method 2 – thermo rhinestones, sequins, beads
You can buy thermo rhinestones, solders or beads at a handicraft store.Coming up with some small inscription or a simple drawing. We put the thermo-rhinestones with the glue side down on the T-shirt according to the drawing or inscription, we put cotton fabric or paper on top. We set the heating mode of the iron, which is suitable for the fabric of the T-shirt. Then we press each thermostat with slight force for a few seconds. Repeat the procedure if necessary. Let the fabric cool. That’s it, your inscription is ready! If you want to complicate the work, then use embroidery, sequins, rhinestones and beads together.
For those who are especially impatient, the handicraft shop sells ready-made drawings and inscriptions made of thermostases.
Method 3 – Sew on the applique
This will require small pieces of multi-colored fabric, an adhesive double-sided gasket, tracing paper, a needle, threads. We translate the drawing into tracing paper. Then we transfer it to the paper side of the glue pad. We cut out the motives, slightly stepping back from the contour inward. We heat the iron, put the pad with the paper side up on the wrong side of the selected fabric.Cover with a piece of paper and put on a heated iron, wait a few seconds. As a result, the pad is bonded to the fabric. Now we cut the motif exactly along the contour. Carefully remove the paper layer from the gasket and apply the applique to the T-shirt. We heat the iron, cover the drawing with a cloth and glue the applique, let the fabric cool.
The outline can now be sewn with a buttonhole or zigzag stitch on the sewing machine. The inner lines can be sewn with a stem stitch.
For this you need a dye for cotton fabric, a cotton T-shirt, preferably white, threads.
We buy paint in a store, carefully read the instructions for its use. We take a T-shirt, grab and twist a piece of it with a flagellum. Then we tightly tie the flagellum with threads. As a result of staining, you will get a circle. If you tie it with threads twice, then a double circle. We make several of these flagella in different places of the T-shirt. We dilute the paint and paint the T-shirt according to the instructions. As soon as it is colored, we take it out of the coloring solution, untie the threads and rinse it thoroughly.It is best to wash such a T-shirt separately, it can shed.
Method 4 – buttons
Quite an original T-shirt can be made using the most common buttons. We take a plain T-shirt, buy a lot of small, bright, flat buttons in the store. We sew them on a T-shirt in the form of a picture or an inscription. This is a method for the very patient – after all, you will have to sew several dozen buttons.
As you can see, decorating a T-shirt with your own hands is not so difficult.It only takes a little time and, most importantly, a little more imagination to end up with a bright, unusual thing.

Polo shirt features – types of collars, buttons, necklines, sleeves, pockets and logos
Polos differ in the type of neckline, collar, sleeves, buttons.In addition, the T-shirt can have a pocket and a logo.
Table of contents:
There are two types of collars – hard and soft.
Soft, single-layer collars hold their shape worse, wrap at the ends and wear out faster.They are easy to distinguish by their appearance – they have a ribbed surface, they are soft to the touch. Most of the T-shirts that come from well-known stores are of this type. Some manufacturers produce polo shirts with a glued collar to save money. Needless to say, after several washes, such a collar will simply fall off.
Solid collars are made of two layers of fabric and have a stitching along the edge. They have a spacer inside for greater rigidity.Such a collar resembles a shirt collar. It looks neat and is a sign of a high quality polo shirt. Helps the collar to keep its shape material with a high non-woven content. At the same time, the polo itself is sewn from the same fabric as the collar, but without the addition of non-woven fabric. Despite the presence of a solid collar, polo is not worn with a tie.
The polo can have either one button or 5-6 buttons. 2-3 buttons are considered classics, but there is no strict standard here. Buttons can be pearl and plastic.
Plastic with four holes look simple and concise, mother-of-pearl – expensive and festive. Pearlescent iridescent buttons have 2 sewing holes. Usually they are sewn onto branded products. By and large, it doesn’t matter what buttons on the polo, because they can be altered at any time. Although sometimes it is the brand name on such a seemingly insignificant detail as a button that is important for the buyer.

It doesn’t matter which brand is in front of you – it can be either an inexpensive polo or a luxury shirt. All products should have evenly overlaid loops and should not have any threads sticking out of the seams.
Polo has 3 types of cutouts: external, internal and Salt.
Budget T-shirts usually have a Salt neckline (after its inventor, Allen Salt). Such a cut usually has only one seam, so production costs are low.For more expensive options, the neckline is either closed (with serrated edges and loops) or open. The last option is the most expensive, since more fabric is used for sewing. The open cut is cut out separately and sewn after the polo is cut.

Most polo shirts have short sleeves, although there are some polo lovers with long sleeves. According to the cutting method, these two types do not differ.The most common design is raglan. Thanks to this cut, you can move freely in the polo, which makes the shirt so comfortable for everyday life and sports. It is not only the cut that matters, but also the material of the product. In polo with knitted sleeves, the freedom of action is wider.
The shoulder seam of a polo shirt, like a classic men’s shirt, should fall exactly on the humerus. The sleeves shouldn’t be too tight on the biceps, but too loose a cut is not an option. It is important to stick to the golden mean here.Ideally, you should try on the shirt before buying to gauge the fit and comfort.

Before purchasing a polo, pay attention to such a small detail as the gusset. This is a piece of knitted fabric, usually white, sewn into the inner shoulder seam. This is done to increase wear resistance. With the help of the gusset, not only the shoulder, but also the side seams are strengthened. From the sides, the gusset is sewn not on the inner, but on the outer seam.This is done for aesthetic reasons. Sometimes, instead of the gusset, they resort to careful processing of the seams.

Manufacturers of inexpensive clothing often sin by not keeping track of the pattern at the seams. Often, customers do not notice when they first look at a T-shirt that the stripes and ornament on the side seams do not match. But this is an important detail. Manufacturers of expensive clothes always carefully monitor the coincidence of the pattern on the sides.
The polo pocket performs basically one function – an aesthetic one. Carrying heavy objects in your pocket will still not work, because in this case it will bulge and sag. Small items like a card or business card can still fit in your breast pocket, though. A polo shirt, like a shirt, has a pocket for a formal look.
Polo shirt pockets
The presence of a small emblem on a polo is not forbidden, but you should not overdo it and buy a polo with a logo on the entire width of the product.It looks rather tasteless than stylish. If you want to look elegant, opt for polo without a logo or with a small print. A large logo on clothes is a characteristic feature of a uniform, not casual wear.
Polo logos: Lacoste, Rafle Lauren and Marco Polo

Fashion would be boring if designers did not come up with various options and elements for decorating clothes.There are quite a few ways to decorate various wardrobe items. However, in this article we would like to focus on such an interesting version of vintage decor as buttons. For more than a dozen years, buttons not only fulfill their practical function, but also serve as a kind of original decoration on clothes. Beautiful buttons do not have to be fastened, sometimes they should simply surprise and delight with their shape and design. What’s more, the original vintage buttons will transform your outfit into something special that sets you apart from the crowd …
Without a doubt, buttons are primarily used to fasten clothes.These goals, one way or another, correspond to their form, method of fastening, material and size. Buttons have their own long history, which began in antiquity.
However, for quite a long time they were not an important element in clothing. Fashion historians believe that until the 12th century, buttons were not used at all as a type of fastener. In Greece and Rome, clothes were fastened with special pins or simply belted.
And only with the change in the silhouette in clothes, their role became important.So in the Gothic era, when clothes were rather narrow, without a convenient fastener it would be simply impossible to put on them. Sometimes clothes without buttons were unstitched to take off, and then sewn again. It was monstrously inconvenient and time-consuming. Some simply did not undress for a long time and wore dirty clothes for weeks.
In such conditions, buttons have become a simply necessary and useful invention. By the way, the Japanese, before the Europeans, came up with the idea of using buttons on clothes.However, how did they use them! Not at all for buttoning up a kimono. Buttons served as a substitute for pockets. On the buttons sewn to the kimono, the courtiers hung various objects, for example, wallets.
Buttons have become incredibly popular since about the 15th century. It is believed that an English priest was the first to manufacture buttons at the factory. And soon other businessmen supported his initiative. The women were delighted with the new decorative elements.Some sewed up to fifty buttons on their outfits. Noble ladies used gemstone buttons as luxurious jewelry.
It is noteworthy that the French king Henry III even issued a special decree, which precisely determined the color of the buttons and their location for the nobility.
Buttons, like other decorative elements, are influenced by fashion. Therefore, buttons appeared and disappeared on fashionable costumes.So in the era of Baroque and Rococo, the nobility almost stopped using buttons. After the fashion for buttons again experienced its rise.
What buttons could be? Absolutely different: from pearls, precious stones, ivory, coral, enamel, wood, silver, gold, crystal, copper, pewter, etc. The material and decoration of the buttons determined and determines their value.
It is noteworthy that there is still an ancient custom of buttoning up clothes in different ways for men and women.The “male clasp”, from left to right, was dictated by the convenience of handling weapons, which the men wielded with their right hand. And such a fastener made it easy to stick your right hand into the bosom to warm it.
“Women’s clasp”, from right to left, was due to the fact that noble ladies almost never dressed on their own, and it was easier for their maids to cope with such a clasp. For the men, this was not a problem, since they dressed without the help of servants.
Modern methods of production and new materials have significantly simplified the production of buttons and expanded the palette of their decoration. Buttons began to be created in completely different shapes and sizes, all kinds of colors.
Fashion designers have now and then turned to the theme of buttons to distinguish their original designs from many other clothes. Famous design houses stamped their name on the buttons of their outfits.As you know, the genius Coco Chanel herself created buttons for her legendary outfits.
After the 80s – 90s of the 20th century, it would seem that everyone began to forget about buttons as a decorative element. And only recently, this vintage decor has begun to gain popularity again.
You can either embroider various elements of the costume with buttons, or use large buttons as a central decorative detail.At the same time, it is relevant to use real vintage buttons that add additional flavor to the clothes.
Variants of the arrangement of buttons, their colors, the option of sewing them on depends on the richness of your imagination and stylistic preferences. There is an opinion that the method of sewing on buttons can contribute to good luck in life.
It should be noted that sometimes just a couple of gorgeous buttons are enough to completely transform your outfit, add mood, chic and unique style to it.
