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.

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!

In terms of everyday annoyances, is there anything worse than a bad hair day? We all suffer them from time to time, and they seem to come at the worst times imaginable – such as when we have a formal job interview or a hot date lined up for the evening. However, seeing as most of us know we can’t stop them, it can be worth knowing how to deal with them quickly and efficiently instead. It can be really easy to stress out about your bad hair day and become frustrated – but in doing so, you can often just make the situation worse. Here are a few hints and tips so you can avert an impending hair disaster and feel ready for the day.

Don’t overuse products

When your hair is simply not behaving as you want it to, the temptation to reach for multiple products can be overwhelming. Hair products such as mousses and sprays exist so that we can manipulate our hair into doing things that are not natural to it. But, like with any synthetic material, you have to be careful about how you use such products. Many of them can be extremely damaging to our hair, and laying them on heavily can often just make our hair look worse. Matted hair and a flaky scalp are just two of the common side effects we can face from overusing products, which obviously don’t look good! Even though you may think that more product = more control over your hair, you may just end up with heavy, slightly damp locks that are even harder to manipulate. Wean yourself off your product dependency by using a little less each time, and be mindful of the amount that you put on your hair.

Fake it

Sometimes, when we are having a bad hair day, we simply don’t have time to spend ages sorting it out. For these instances, wigs and hairpieces can be a lifesaver. Many people still consider wigs part of ‘costume makeup’ or something reserved solely for Halloween. But just look at all the celebrities we now see these days sporting wigs on the red carpet. Websites such as PureWigs.com/ladies-wigs/ offer a range of styles, whether you fancy a pixie crop or something long and flowing. Simply gather your own hair into the cap provided, attach the hairpiece to your head and you have a beautiful, effortless look in a matter of seconds.

Learn some easy styles

It can be very useful to have a backlog of failsafe hairstyles that you know can rescue you from any bad hair day. You don’t need to be a hair master to pull any of these off, and most will only take a few minutes at best. The classic high ponytail can work well for people with mid-length to long hair, and for anyone with a shorter crop, why not try braiding the front section so that it’s out of your face?

Our hair. It’s the first thing everyone sees. It can make, or break our appearance. You can do everything you want to your makeup and outfit, but if your hair’s wrong, it won’t make a difference. There’s a reason bad hair days are evil. When your hair is wrong, everything else will be too. Equally, you can get away with a lot when your hair is at its best. Your whole appearance will come together. But, why does hair make such a difference? For the most part, it’s because of the way hair shape changes the appearance of our faces. We all aim for a haircut that best compliments our features. Sharp angles, or long curls, can enhance what nature gave us. If those angles are wrong, or the curls are flat, they will cease to compliment the way we expect. It may well be important to love your body, but it’s equally important to love your hair.

So, how can you make your hair work for you- like I’ve done with my favorite hair products above? Finding the best haircut should be your first port of call. Remember what we said about the way the right cut can compliment you? The wrong cut can do the opposite. If you’ve been feeling bad about the way you look, it may be time for a change in hair style. Visit sites like www.marieclaire.com to gain ideas about popular hairstyles. Bear in mind that you need to think carefully before making a decision. A haircut that looks fantastic on someone else may not work for you. A pixie cut will look amazing on someone with sharp features, but wouldn’t be flattering for a round face. To help you make the right choice, look out for people with a similar face shape to you. If a cut looks good on them, it’s a pretty safe bet that it will suit you, too.

When you consider how important your hair is, it makes sense you should do everything to keep it in the best condition. Yet, it’s a task few of us turn our hands to. We spend hours perfecting skin routines to keep our skin supple and fresh while neglecting our hair. Worse, we dry and straighten it like there’s no tomorrow. Is it any wonder, then, that many of us are suffering from less than perfect hair condition? But, if you abuse it, you’ll lose it. In an age where unstraightened hair is something from the dark ages, it may not be possible to cut these habits. But, there are steps we can take to reduce their damage. Heat protection serum could be a life saver to you if you straighten often. It’s also worth trying to cut down on the amount you do turn to heat. You may find that you can turn to straightening only after washing. This will be a lot better for your hair than a daily session. Think, too, about buying shampoo and conditioner designed for your hair type. Decide whether you have dry, curly, or thin hair. Then, buy products that suit. They’ll make all the difference.

It’s also worth mentioning the effects aging has on our hair. We all know about wrinkles, and do everything possible to prevent them. But, are we so well informed about what can happen to our hair? No. And, if we are, we often ignore the warnings. The most obvious point to mention is gray hairs. While some people go gray sooner than others, none of us are immune. That’s why it’s important to fight the problem. You may want to go gray gracefully, and there’s nothing wrong with that. Grey can look beautiful and is becoming more and more popular, even among young people. If you’re not keen, it’s time to get the hair dye out. You could stick to your natural color, or go for something more adventurous.

A less common, but equally devastating consequence of aging is hair loss. Before it happens to you, turn to a company like nutrafol.com who can help to prevent the problem. If hair loss runs in your family, it’s worth preventing it as soon as you spot weakening. Hair loss isn’t an easy problem to cover, and it’s sure to have an adverse impact on how you feel. If you’re not convinced you need turn your attention to your hair, give it a go and see how much of a difference it makes.

There are so many things to think about when it comes to planning a wedding. You want the perfect venue, with the perfect number of guests. You have to find the perfect dress, one that complements your figure, and is in just the right shade of white for your skin tone. You can worry yourself about entertaining, writing your own vows – and the list does truly go on and on.

In the midst of all this, you have to make a decision about something you do every single day – something that, given this is meant to be the happiest day of your life, is going to take on a whole new level of importance. Making the choice for how you wear your hair for your wedding is not one of the biggest ones in the grand scheme of things – but what bride doesn’t want to look back on her photos and feel everything was perfect?

Stripped bare, this tends to come down to one of two options: up, or down?

Rhinestone Bridal Hair Comb

The Classic Bride: The Updo

There’s no doubt that if there is a ‘classic’ hairstyle for brides, then it’s the updo like the one featured at  www.youtube.com. Usually complete with a few braids and twists for interest, it’s a simple style that allows the gown you choose to take center stage.

While it looks effortless and chic, what goes into to making this style work is anything but effortless. For one thing, you’re going to have to be prepared to be on the receiving end of (what feels like) several liters of hairspray. What’s more, your hair might not play ball. Most of the photos you see of this style tend to be done on models with thick, long hair – which is fairly rare in the average populace. You may need to grab a brush for an arm-exercising session of backcombing or add in a few pieces from www.celebwigs.com to get the high, voluminous style that characterizes this look. A few pins can definitely add interest, but insert them incorrectly and they will pull on your scalp – so advance with care.

On the upside (pun not intended, but appreciated): it’s the classic for a reason. It looks great and, done correctly, will see you through to the end of the wedding.

Bridal Silk Flower Crown

The Fairy tale: Long, Loose, Flowing Curls

If you prefer a more ethereal look, then long curls flowing over your shoulders can give you a fairy tale effect with minimal effort. The problem with this style is that it relies a lot more on your own hair to create the effect. Extensions are an option, of course, but they’ll need to be good quality to give that flowing water feeling.
On the plus side, it’s relatively simple to maintain this style throughout the day – especially if you have curly hair to begin with. You can accessorize the look as you please, with sparkly hair slides or even flowers if you fancy a little 1960s flower-power inspiration. It’s worth considering a deep-conditioning treatment before the day itself; your hair is going to be on show, so it needs to look its best.
