One of the brands that I wore a lot this year is Porto. It is a brand I discovered through GetDressed2 who felt it would be perfect for my style.

They were right!

The comfortable fabrics (often with stretch) combined with their unique asymmetrical designs are right up my alley. It’s perfect for 40+ women as the brand combines comfort with superbly designed pieces that are easy to mix and match.

I have fallen in love with the newest additions to my wardrobe.

I love the asymmetrical lines of the blouse and the fabric is a lovely mix of cotton and elastane. The design complements the asymmetrical lines of the equally comfortable black skirt. Also a bland of 75% cotton and 25% elastane which makes it so easy to wear because of its stretchy fabric which eliminates the need for any buttons or zippers.

This is one of the outfits I wore to Singapore Fashion Week recently so I could not resist adding my fashionista shoes from United Nude.

The bulky blue necklace from Cos finishes the look.

Another skirt I’m going to love is this blue draped skirt from Porto. Again, really comfortable and made from stretch fabric. I like that the fabric is stretchy but still quite firm, which tucks in the belly area (cannot find this skirt on the site currently). The blouse is from In Good Company and previously feature here.

Inizio works a lot with linen fabrics for summer, which makes them ideal pieces for lazy summer days. This linen dress is ideal for summer. My only regret is that I did not pick one of the many fabulous colors that this dress comes in. Instead I added color by adding my Cigno Nero (a brand GetDressed2 also carries) leather jacket. Necklace is by Suzanne Carillo.

This multi fabric layered top is great for getting a fake-layer effect in summer.

Another great layering piece is this sheer layered top. See how I wore it in my article on how to wear sheer.

Then there is this gray draped dress from Porto I showed you here. Super comfortable and does not wrinkle so ideal for holidays. It combines really well with the linen / cotton moto jacket from Inizio.

I also wore the jacket with my white pants. Full article here.



This burgundy dress was part of my winter capsule, but I wear it a lot in summer too. Using a thicker stretchy material, this is a super flattering dress that has proven to be a wardrobe favorite.

If you are looking for original design, while still feeling really comfortable in your clothes, I encourage you to have a look at the Porto and Inizio brands available at Getdressed2.

All the above clothes were handpicked by me and provided to me for editorial consideration c/o Getdressed2.

What do you think of these 2 brands? Does their style aesthetic appeal to you?
