Here are Cristina Cordula’s star looks!
The shopping queen of M6, Cristina Cordula is often described as elegant, refined and feminine. She focuses on clothes with classic cuts and subtle details, but she also doesn’t hesitate to add a touch of originality to her outfits with colourful accessories or bold prints. Here are the must-haves that every woman over 50 should have in her wardrobe:
Black dress: For a business meeting or a family dinner, the black dress is the first thing to buy. Depending on your figure, you can choose an airy cut and a fluid material (if you have a small belly, a bouncy butt or wide hips). Or bet on a dress with a V-neck or rounded neckline (if you have wide shoulders).
Denim: You can look elegant and chic even in jeans. Pair your favourite style with a high-quality white shirt and a brown belt.
“Chanel” style outfit: Who doesn’t love the Chanel style? There are no words that can describe how exceptional it is. You need it! You really do! And the great thing is that you can buy affordable outfits because so many stores are inspired by their curly jackets, pearls and classic cuts. H&M and Zara are just a few examples.
Wide leg pants: this loose fit is very comfortable and will make you look more stylish. Choose a black or white colour, so you can pair it with business or party outfits.
Must-have accessories: As you can see from the photos here, Cristina Cordula prefers monochromatic looks. This gives you the opportunity to wear all the accessories you want. The pearl necklace, XXL earrings or colourful belts bring the touch of pep you need. Don’t be afraid to experiment. Be bold! Be yourself!
