Denim

Denim is back and we couldn’t be happier! Not only is it fashionable, it’s so easy to wear. A pair of jeans, a denim shirt and a choker is the casual look of choice for 2017. With celebrities like Khloe Kardashian releasing their own denim brands, our love for denim couldn’t be hotter right now. Take a look at online boutiques for more ideas.

Slogan T-Shirts

Whatever your life’s mantra, there’s a t-shirt to go with it. It’s the carefree way of showing off your personality via clothing. You’ll come across slogans such as YOLO, Give A Damn and I Am Limited Edition. The great thing about these t-shirts is that you can dress them up or dress them down. Tie them at the waist and pair them with a skirt and heels for a night out or slip on your favorite jeans and flip flops for a casual lunch date.

Skirt Suits

Ladies are taking over when it comes to the work place. We can do everything! If you’re good at your job and you know it, show it with a professional looking skirt suit. Not only are they easy to wear with a pair of low heels, there’s something about a skirt suit that gives you more confidence. When you look good and feel good, you can take the world by storm.

Active Wear

There would have been a time when going for lunch in your active wear would have been frowned upon. These days women are putting their active wear on for anything and everything, and completely avoiding the gym. It’s become part of fashion and you’ll probably find some items that look like active wear but are actually meant for everyday activities.

Tartan

It’s everywhere. It’s on our bodies, on our sofas, in our rugs. A smart tartan jacket will never do you wrong. The fabric is so versatile that you could wear it to an interview, as part of a wedding outfit or you may even see it on bikini’s on the beach.

Wide Leg Trousers

Another item you can dress up or dress down, wide leg trousers are another must have for your wardrobe. They’re great for wearing to work or going on a date and making an impression. Of course, they’re also ideal for wearing with a sweater and curling up on the sofa for a night in.

Accessories

It’s all about the bigger, the better this year. Go for big belts and big sunglasses. You may also want to invest in some costume jewellery for when a big event comes along. Happy shopping!

Among the many and inspiring fashions for the spring/summer season, it is impossible not to have spotted the super bright trends that are taking over the catwalks like a rainbow on a dull day. Color is everywhere, and everything can become a bold and bright accessory to mark your love for colors. Because, if we are honest, it is difficult not to love colors. Of course, a full-on bright fashion trend is not for everyone – it’s tricky to feel confident enough to pull out some of the catwalk’s looks – but it doesn’t mean that you should be happy in a world of neutrals and dull colors. After all, 50 Shades of Gray was never a reference for the fashion that women love to wear every day. We, ladies, are not boring, and therefore we should totally embrace this bright wave of positivity that is spreading through the fashion world. Thankfully, fashion is a wonderful thing: You can use smart accents, accessories and beauty styles as well as clothes to create your own sense of fashion. In short, if you’re not one to wear a bright yellow dress, that’s fine. Maybe a bright belt will do the trick just as nicely. Let’s have a look at how you can best let the colors into your world.

So Much Choice

For a start, they are more colors that we have words for them. In truth, there is even such a thing as a shade of paint called dead salmon, so you can imagine that designers have come up with more colors than we can name. Therefore, it can be a little overwhelming at first to pick the most suitable color for your personality – unless you already have favorite colors, of course. As silly as it might sound, sometimes all you need is to identify with the energy of a color scheme to know what’s right for you. Sounds complicated? Imagine that each color is associated with a personality trait, such as vermilion for people who are warm, helpful and welcoming, for example. Your choice of colors often says something about you, even if it only unconsciously. So it can be helpful to find out what people think of different color schemes so that you’re not sending the wrong message.

Colorful Accessory That Goes With Nothing And Everything

The easiest and quirkiest way to embrace the bright fashion is to pick a fashion accessory that is out of the ordinary. For example, you can have a look at colorful jewelry, such as the custom-made bracelet from the Kendra Scott color bar. This could be your bright fashion accent. When you pick a colorful accessory, it’s likely that it will not always be fully coordinated with the rest of your clothes. But it is exactly what the bold, colorful fashion trend is about. So be brave and don’t be afraid of clashing. If you are naturally shy, pick a small accessory, such as a bracelet, a pair of earrings, or a belt. If you are feeling more confident, go bold and look for a bright and joyful handbag or a pair of bright pink or green shoes.

Simple Colorful Everyday Item

Not everyone likes the idea of changing their style to embrace a new fashion trend, however appealing it might be. But you don’t need to change your wardrobe to go bright. If you are a gadget lover, you can find plenty of brightly colored high-tech gear online – check first for discounted prices online via DontPayFull.com, though – from a step-counter to an activity-tracker for fitness enthusiasts, or maybe the latest smartphone model in blue, red, or gold if you’re not into fitness. You can bring colors to your world without breaking the bank with bright and playful covers for your IT gadgets. In short, just because you want to roll on with the color fashion, it doesn’t mean that you should be buying a brand new wardrobe. You can use colorful everyday items that are not part of your outfit too. After all, fashion is what you make of it.

That One Piece Of Clothing You Need

It may seem tricky to bring bright fashion into the workplace if you want to introduce colorful clothes, but you can be playful while staying decent. The easiest way to add a touch of color without going against the dress code is to pick one colorful item, let’s say a skirt, and to combine it with a formal blouse. Or if you want to brighten up your wardrobe in a simple and effective way, you can have a look for one colorful cardigan or a bright pair of shoes. Thus you can stick to a formal business outfit, such as the classic little black dress, and avoid any negative comment from the management or the HR department.

A Bold Hairstyle To Brighten Up The Day

If you are lucky enough to add a bright pop of color to your everyday lifestyle without fearing from being reprimanded by your boss, do seize the opportunity to dye your hair. Current trends are varying from a playful dip and dye hairstyle in delightful green, blue, pink and purple tones, to a full-on rainbow head, such as seen on TheRightHairstyles.com. The effect goes from edgy to funky, and it’s up to you – and your hairdresser – what you pick. Although there are a few things to remember: Purple shades are better suited for dark hair, while pink, mermaid, and orange are better for blondes. However, with a bit of magic and a lot of careful treatment, you can get away with almost any color on your head.

Why Do You Need Colors?

Finally, it’s worth asking ourselves why colors are so important in the current fashion trend. In reality, colors have always been important, because they affect the brain and the mind in different ways.  For example, blue is naturally associated with space and calm, while red is a passionate color that indicates love and affection. People react emotionally to colors, and their presence can lift your mood significantly. In short, while you may not need to ditch the classic black dress, but you should add a touch of sentiment to it.

Fashion is more than just the clothes you wear and before you even go out shopping for a night out, you need to remember that. It’s important that you know that your day to day wardrobe doesn’t need to be constantly replaced to be different. Every outfit deserves to be complemented with accessories. Think about it: when you go to work, you wear simple and stylish jewellery. When you’re on a night out, that bling clutch bag is by your side all night. Accessories give an outfit some life, some pizzazz. Your accessory choices also say a lot about you as the wearer!

With a few simple accessories, even the outfits that can be boring are totally transformed. Swap the accessories around for each outfit, and you create even more looks. Check out our list of outfit-changing accessories that every gal needs in her wardrobe.

Scarves: Scarves add texture, patterns and layers to outfits that don’t have any. The classic plain white tee with skinny jeans immediately has life breathed into it with a brightly coloured scarf. Tie around the collar, thread through the belt loops or even use them to decorate your handbag. Scarves add a touch of class to even the most casual outfit.

Diamonds: Every girl loves a little sparkle. When you check out the frosting on the hands and ears of the models in the magazines, you cannot help but check out the 2 carat diamond price from Diamond Registry before you buy. Diamonds never go out of fashion, and while jewellery is always an exciting addition to an outfit, diamonds have that little something more that makes you look chic, however you wear them.

Belts: Not just for holding your trousers up, belts can bring your whole look together while also slimming out your waistline. They don’t always have to go through the belt loops, either, with so many larger belts being made to break up play-suits and sit at waist height instead of hip height. By gathering the middle of your outfit in with a belt, you’ve transformed your outfit and fashioned yourself a shape!

Shoes: Every girl loves a stunning pair of heels, whether high or low. Shoes make an outfit look wonderful and you can go from casual to sophisticated and sexy in about five seconds flat. Always match your shoes to your outfit – baggy boyfriend jeans won’t look so good with the latest Louboutin’s, but your power suit at the office will!

Handbags: Big and small, handbags come in many shapes and sizes. Don’t be afraid to go bold with handbag colors, as your plainer outfits can really shine with a beautiful colored bag. Be bold, be brave and let your handbag be a statement that you carry around with you. Check out this website for handbag ideas for your outfits.

Working your accessories into your outfit can make your whole wardrobe change, so don’t be afraid to experiment with what you have. Jazz it up or tone it down – your outfits need some life!

There’s very little about a wedding that’s easy and stress-free. Trying to pick out the right attire for the day is certainly not going to be one example! Most weddings are, to a great extent, about putting on a show and feeling glamorous for a day, so this really puts the pressure on when it comes to choosing the right dresses and accessories.

Fortunately for you, this here is an epic guide to making sure you pick the wedding attire that’s right for you on your big day! It’s something that’s worth reading well in advance to ensure you have the time to follow it and achieve the best results.

Vintage 1950s wedding dress

Begin with the dress

Don’t try to go avant-garde on us. There are a lot of good reasons why most people will pick the actual dress before anything else, and it’s not a trend you should try to buck. After all, the dress is the “main attraction” of your attire, and pretty much everything else has to be picked so as not to clash with it.

With that in mind, you also need to remember that the dress itself shouldn’t clash with you or the venue! A contemporary venue should have a contemporary dress. A more casual or outdoors-y type wedding will call for a different kind of dress. There are people out there who think that choosing the dress first of all turns it into some kind of template, instead of giving it the emotional weight that it deserves. This is nonsense. Pick the dress first, because it’s the best way to choose everything else and avoid some kind of vestiary disaster down the road!

The silhouette

There’s an overwhelming amount of choice when it comes to wedding dresses. You’re going to walk into a store and find about a million different dresses you’d love to wear, even after narrowing the range by budgeting beforehand. (Which, yes, is something you definitely need to do! Otherwise, the costs of this process may end up getting a little bit out of hand.) So you need to find more ways of narrowing your desired range so that you don’t get too overwhelmed. One of the best ways to do this is to narrow things down based on the dress silhouette.

The dress silhouette refers to the specific shapes that constitute a given dress. The lines, cuts and curves will determine what kind of shape you would take on if the lights cut out and you were simply a silhouette in that wedding dress. Put very simply, it can help determine how curvy, slender, or ‘poofy’ you look in that dress! It’s worth finding out precisely what kind of dress ‘shape’ you want – the most popular types are A-lines, ball gowns, mermaids, and trumpets. Make sure you know the differences when it comes to dress silhouettes!

Be an early bird

You should take this to mean two things. The first is that you should start looking for a dress fairly early on. Unless you plan on becoming pregnant, the chances of your body shape changing in any significant way from the time you choose the dress to the day of your wedding is fairly minimal, even if you gain or lose a little weight. So it’s best to do this as early as possible. It’s not simply a case of “getting it out of the way” – although there certainly is an element of it to that, considering how stressful choosing a dress can be! – but it’s also about allowing you more freedom when it comes to time and choice.

So what else does “be an early bird” mean? Basically, when you’re going to visit a wedding dress shop, you should go as early as possible. Think about it: the assistants who work in that store have to deal with several budding brides a day. Just like the vast majority of us, they get a little more weary as the day progresses. I’m not saying that you’re going to get some apathetic and insulting assistant if you go in the late afternoon, but you’re certainly more likely to get someone more energetic and attentive if you go in the morning!

The danger of trends

Anyone who follows fashion knows that there are trends in pretty much every type of clothing – and that includes wedding attire. There are trends in gowns, suits, jewelry, hairstyles… everything. And the problem with trends? Many of them don’t tend to look that great when you look back on them in the future. You may think that you want a modern and trendy wedding, but this doesn’t mean you should take this so far that you end up copying and pasting your wedding attire style from whatever magazine you happened to be reading at the time, or whatever celebrities recently got married.

The best kinds of dresses are truly timeless. They’re the kind that look beautiful forever and don’t immediately scream “I got this idea from someone else!”. It is, of course, worth remembering that your choice of wedding dress should reflect your own desires, and make you look and feel great. And maybe that perfect dress for you does happen to be exactly what’s trendy at the moment. Basically, be careful about choosing wedding attire just because it’s trendy – but take care not to shun something you really like just because it’s trendy!

Accessorizing

When we talk about accessorizing for a wedding, we’re generally talking about jewelry. Here’s something that’s important to remember: it’s possible to get more than one use of out the jewelry you choose, which is something you probably can’t say about your wedding dress! So this shouldn’t just be a case of making sure you find something that matches with your dress perfectly. You should consider picking out jewelry that you’d actually want to use for other occasions!

To some, this may imply that you should be willing to spend an awful lot of money to ensure you get something that’s beautiful, flexible, and long-lasting. Yes, you should aim for jewelry that is all three of those things, but they needn’t be too expensive. You can, for example, find wholesale diamonds for sale that will do the trick. Otherwise, you may want to consider simply renting jewelry for your wedding day. Heck, even a high-quality replica will probably do! At the end of the day, just ensure that your choice doesn’t clash with your dress and that you’re happy with it.

Avoid audiences

Think about all the wedding movies you’ve seen, and all the television shows that have featured weddings. In most of these there will have been a scene in which the bride-to-be is picking her wedding dress – and has brought approximately a bajillion friends with her. There are a lot of reasons why someone may do this: they don’t want any of their friends being left out, and they also want to get as many opinions as possible.

Here’s the problem with that: you’re just going to end up in the middle of a cross-fire of opinions! The more people you have with you, the more pressure you’re going to feel. It may ultimately be harder to pick out a dress. You should really only have one or two friends with you, at most. Don’t follow the example Hollywood sets – those scenes are there to create dramatic dialogue, which isn’t necessarily helpful in real life!

When your attire has been decided, it’s worth giving some thought to how you’re going to wear your hair on the day. Fortunately for you, there’s already an in-depth guide to wedding day hairdos on this very blog!

You can’t pinpoint a stylist’s style. They may follow a fashion trend every so often, but most of the time, they come up with their own unique outfits and look ideas. One thing is for sure though; they always look amazing! Here’s your guide to dressing like a stylist so you can make sure all of your outfits are on point!

Women’s Hinge Texture Stitch Open Cardigan

Experiment With Textures

One thing you’ll notice about pretty much every stylist, is that their outfits are full of amazing textures. This stops them from looking samey and boring, especially if they are wearing an outfit predominantly of one color. For example, an all black outfit could look boring if no texture is used. Experiment with all kinds of different materials and textures in your outfits to keep them looking interesting and full of style.

Women’s Caslon Layer Look Drawstring Neck Tunic

Practice Layering Your Outfits

Layering your outfits is another key to keeping it interesting. The great thing about layering, is that it’s great for transitional weather when you’re not sure what you should be wearing. You can easily add layers or take them away as the weather changes. It can take a little practice to get this right, but you will get the hang of it in no time. When layering, it’s a good idea to experiment with hem lengths and things like that too.

Always Accessorize

You should never dress without considering what accessories you’re going to wear. Accessories help to enhance your outfit. Make sure you have a selection of accessories to choose from, from evening bags to necklaces. You can then choose accessories that make your outfit pop.

The Trick To Making Any Outfit Look Great

Did you know that there’s a little trick to making any outfit look great? You could be wearing jeans and a t-shirt, or a plain dress, but this trick will always work. Choose a smart pair of shoes, a luxurious looking bag, and a pair of nice sunglasses. They can be any style and color of course, but black will go with anything. Try it and you won’t believe what a difference it can make to your outfits!

Moschino Heart Leather Belt

Belt Up

The right belt can make an outfit look more pulled together. It can make even the plainest of outfits look amazing, and give you a bit of shape to boot. Skinny belts and thick belts work; it’s all down to what you prefer and suits your shape best.

Tan Leopard & Plaid Contrast Button-Up

Never Mix More Than 2 Prints Or 2 Clashing Colors

Stylists seem to be amazing at mixing prints and clashing colors. But there’s a rule if you want to start doing this. You shouldn’t mix more than 2 prints at once, or more than 2 clashing colors. By sticking to the rule of 2, you’ll be able to rock just about any look with ease!
Dressing like a stylist might take some practice, and you might even need to reassess your wardrobe to incorporate some better pieces, and get rid of those you don’t wear. However, it shouldn’t be long before your outfits are worthy of their own Instagram account!
