Cosetta Strega

This is going to be my personal Strega style base. Feel free to use it as inspiration or whatever, but keep in mind that it’s personal.

1. the limitations placed on it aren’t exactly something you have to follow and 2. the contents of this post are subject to change at random times as I or C. evolve it.

Patterns and Materials:

Look and Silhouette:
– Traditionally Femme / Feminine (skirts and dresses, no pants or shorts)
– Semi traditionalist- Knee Length hemline, or lower; not above the knee, even if it requires multiple bottom articles skirts to achieve a lowered hemline
– Tailored Waistlines
– Fitted, tailored, or otherwise tighter tops
– Mostly plain fabrics in neutral darks and / or lights, with statement color and pattern pops (as defined in “colors” and “Materials” sections)
– Illusion Layering where layering is done more with multiple fabric / layered individual pieces (such a s tiered peasant skirts) and through jewelry- instead of being done through an increased number of overall worn clothing items (such as layering multiple shirts or skirts).
