2020 will probably go down in history as the year of comfortable outfits, of home looks and of the few times we quickly left the house to mark the daily routine.
Luckily, however, this has not extinguished the desire to give prestige to the wardrobe, and the sales that have just started represent an opportunity to invest your time in leisure and ideas for the upcoming occasions to go out or for the time you spend at home and at work with a look that does not admit uncertainties.

5) Oversized bags. Recommended by the etiquette only during the day. But for evenings and nightlife you still have to wait. So the problem does not arise, while the opportunity is tempting to invest in a bag that is capable of containing everything that is indispensable. Choose them with fringes, with studs: there is always time for minimalism.
