CHURCH, WORK & DINNER OUTFITS IDEAS

OUTFITS IDEAS FOR MEN AND WOMEN

Its official. Suspenders are back in fashion!

Fashion trends for the fall of 2012 push menswear for women beyond the confines of the office. Wide-legged trousers, vests, suit jackets, oxfords and loafers are all making their way along the runways, and the new season's most exciting accessory is suspenders.

Suspenders add attitude to an outfit, the modern suspender, invented in the early 19th century, has since swayed in and out of popularity, thanks to the belt. Sure, the functionality of suspenders has become obsolete, but who said fashion has anything to do with practicality. Before jumping on the suspenders bandwagon, assess your body type. “People sometimes have the biggest trouble with trends because they don’t know how their shape fits into the style of clothes they are trying to wear.Suspenders are really flattering on slim, boyish or athletic body types.

If wearing suspenders remains an option for you, here are a few looks to put the accessory to work.

Wide-leg trousers, a crisp white button-up and pumps are the essential menswear look: simple, classic and professional. While you have a lot of choices with the pants — wide-leg, skinny, slouchy or straight — don’t divert on the fit of your button-up. You don’t want the shirt to bulge or bunch underneath the suspenders. Tuck your shirt in and avoid long necklaces, as they will distract and overwhelm the outfit. If you're wearing suspenders, they should be the main accessory, unless you are wearing with tank tops.

Pairing suspenders with jeans, a vintage tee and flats is a simple, casual way to wear the trend. It looks effortless with confidence. Whether you wear boyfriend, skinny, wide-legged or high-waisted jeans, it is crucial to wear a fitted shirt to avoid bunching. You can even customize this look by substituting a cropped T-shirt for a full one and shorts or cargo pants instead of jeans.

“I’ve even seen suspenders with jean shorts, a vintage tee and cowboy boots, which I thought was really, really cute.

Heels might distract from the casual T-shirt-and-jeans vibe, so if you must add height, try wedges or rustic-style platforms with this look.




Fashion was always the focus of their daily topic. Not only these movie stars, but also every woman wants to be the best and fashionable one. Parties, gatherings and social get together are the places where you will find women in their best attires. At all of those events, the evening party is the most important one, so the latest 2012 evening dresses are very popular among women who like to be the party queen.

 

If you need to attend a party or dinner, evening dresses are the best selection. Are you worried about what color you should choose? Black is the great choice of every season. If you want to be creative, you may like to try out different colors, such as gold, red or purple. Different people have their different cognitive style and you must follow your physical structure to find your dream wear. Generally speaking, evening dresses that a slim and slender woman can wear may not look good on a plump woman.

 

Sometimes, you can find many fashion and latest styles of evening dresses on the red carpet easily. Let me show few different kinds of dress styles for you. For example, women who with pretty legs can choose a short evening gown. An elegant long evening dress is also popular with them. Some women like to be conservative with little in the way of cleavage showing while others may prefer to dazzle having a long slit up the front, or back, of the dress to display their legs more prominently.

 

Broadly speaking, the important thing is to be clear that what you can choose in designs, colors and patterns which you can dip into to find the one alternative that best fits your features and style you want to achieve. However, you could also experiment with different styles and to watch more fashion events. I think it can help to be more fashion.

How To Wear All Black And Look Chic.

UPDATE: Learn how to wear all black, the right way.
Like a trusted friend, the most reliable color in our wardrobe never lets us down. Our little black anythings are always there for us, ready to make us look amazing, seeing us through any party, date, or professional schmooze-fest. The danger, though, is that when it comes to ultra-dark outfits, you can have too much of a good thing and end up giving off a scary impression.

If you're craving new, never-tried ways to wear this standby shade, you'll want to take notes. Haitian Fashion Icons assembled a few all-black outfits that show off your mad style skills, instead of hiding them in goth shadows. If you pay attention to details (and fabrics, and silhouettes), you can pull of a monochromatic look (even in the dead of summer!) that's all about confidence, creativity, and sartorial smarts. 

How to Dress for a First Date

Dressing for a first date demands a drop-dead gorgeous ensemble that will impress a potential love match and keep your confidence soaring all night long.

* The way you dress for a first date says a lot about who you are and provides some important visual clues to your partner. A word of caution however. When it comes to a first date you may not really want to divulge the closet hippy or femme fatale lurking within. Don’t wear clothes that are very revealing or expose too much of your body.
If you do wear a skirt it should reach your knees at least (not too long not too short) and tops or shirts should never reveal a bra-line or too much cleavage. (Leave that for when you get to know each other a little better).
* How you choose to dress should show your date you respect him enough to make a good impression. It can also make you feel a lot more confident and relaxed on your first day or night out with the object of your affection.
* The outfit, shoes and accessories you choose to wear should be chosen with care and attention to detail and should indicate that you have made a special effort for your date. Don’t overdress in an effort to make an impression. A little black number isn’t famous for its over-the-top detail after all!
Keep it simple and if you absolutely must be daring go for a halter neck top or TINY slit in your skirt.
* Don’t dress too casually or too formally. Go for a smart-casual look that is not too understated or too bold and daring. Add a touch or two that says “I am unique’.
Colors you may consider wearing when you dress for a first date include blues, black (don’t overdo it) and earthy tones like brown or beige. You could also go with the latest fashion colors like pink or orange, but keep it understated. This is not the time to be sporting that really short, really red, backless mini-dress.

Remember, a  first date is a time to get to know the object of your affection and to establish a solid relationship based on mutual respect so don’t get too tied up in what you are wearing but do make sure you create a lasting impression!
Good luck!


70s and 80s Fashion: Stayin’ Alive

Everything old is new again – especially when we’re talking style. The current revival of 70s / 80s fashion are in this stylista’s opinion, a refreshing blast from the past. Acid wash jeans, boyfriend jackets, big jewelry, and neon hues have found their way back into the stores and our closets. 

   

           Over-sized tops (especially off the shoulder) with a belt.

This look has totally withstood the test of time, because nothing shows off a curvy figure better than creating a feminine silhouette with a cinched in waist. Sure, many of us occasionally feel insecure about our bodies, but don’t use that as an excuse to hide yourself under a big shapeless outfit. Instead, sport a loose, wide-necked, over-sized T-shirt with an adorable belt to create that coveted hour-glass figure. You can pair this look with jeans, leggings, shorts, or even a knee-length skirt! Now that’s a rockin’ look straight from the 80s!

              Big, bold jewelry.

 Surprise! This style is just as popular and trendy now as it was 30 years ago. Just look around. You’ll see that super-sizing your accessories can elevate an outfit from so-so to stunning. Madonna rocked this style in the 80s and now, you can too. Bring this look into the 21st century by pairing simple clothes with the boldest earring or biggest necklace you can find. Here’s a hint – pick either earrings OR a necklace OR bracelet and rings to wear to keep your outfit from going overboard.

              Leggings, Leggings, Leggings!

You can take this look straight from fall to summer by pairing leggings with a cute summer dress. Experiment with different combinations (printed dress – solid leggings, solid dress-striped leggings, solid dress-solid leggings + a belt) to find the look that works best on you. We especially love this 80s-inspired fashion because you can wear it all year round! 



Blast from the past? Crop tops and mini swing skirts are back!

Fun and festive, look totally sassy and a little sexy, the circle shaped Crop Top works well with a swing skirt and cutoff denim.

I love the way pairing a crop top with a swing skirt looks because you can still show some skin without feeling self-conscious. I love how fashion makes you want to take risks and leave your comfort zone!

THE HAREM PANTS ARE BACK AND HERE TO STAY!! FROM THE RUNWAYS TO THE STREETS.

THE HAREM PANTS ARE BACK!! FROM THE RUNWAYS TO THE STREET.

 Two decades after their heyday, the baggy, parachute-style pants made by famous MC Hammer are again hanging off the legs of celebrities and fashionistas.

The most flattering shape, keep it tight on top, a camisole top or tailored jacket is perfect. Because of the volume, its important to balance out the top half with a fitted top. If you prefer one that's soft and slouchy then tuck it into the waist, and add a waist-cinching belt. Throw over a fitted blazer and you have "Easy Chic" look.

Harem pants were seen in past seasons, especially in Spring/Summer 2012 which they made a real grand entrance. Harem pants were all over 2009- 2012 runways from New York to London and Paris to Milan. Click the link for more fashion tips

SUMMER MAKEUP TIPS

 

This summer, bring on the glamorous look and keep your makeup looking great with fun tips this new makeup tips.

 Summer makeup is all about bright, fun color options, so be bold. Try new colors on your lips like coral and poppy pink.

 Your first summer tip: less is more during the summer, sometimes too much makeup during the summer months can make a woman look older.

 Next, think lightweight. In hot humid temperatures, heavy makeup is a no go. Try using oil free creams and serums. Sun protection will be mandatory so choose primers with SPF or a matte powder with SPF.

 Lastly, as your traveling on your business and vacation trips this summer, stay moisturized. To keep skin hydrated while flying I always apply a moisturizing mask and spray rose water on my face throughout the flight. If you find yourself in the sun, be sure to carry a face powder with a high SPF to apply over makeup. They are quick, easy to apply and convenient to carry about.
