Bedroom Fashions

Bedroom fashions for newly wedded couples take some major compromise unless one of the members of the couple could care less! And, that is not usually the case so couples must consider whether they want a full size captain bed or a captions bed or perhaps if adjustable linens would be something they are interested in. There are a lot of current styles for newly wedded couples to consider when it comes to bedroom fashions and there are some tips as well to help make the purchase go as smoothly as possible.

First of all, newly wedded couples are generally on a budget and that means that they should be extra careful about spending a lot of money on bedroom fashions. Trends change and if the couple will regret their purchase in five years then they should never have made it. So, the best thing to do is find a bedroom suite that is acceptable to both the man and woman in the relationship that they both feel they will like for at least 10 years down the road if not more. Beds made of dark wood and with simple lines are always a good and elegant choice. They match everything and will always be beautiful and stylish no matter what is in style. Keep this in mind when you enter a store and think how stylish one particular bedroom suite is. If you feel you can live with it for at least 10 years if not forever then go for it. If you aren’t quite sure find one that fits this criterion.

If you buy a bedroom suite, which will likely cost you upwards of a thousand dollars, then you can be a little more playful with your comforter and linens. That’s because these are easy to change when you are tired of a specific color or style. Buy sheets that are bright and bold colors and a duvet cover that matches. But, when you are tired of this trend buy some sheets that are patterned or in lighter colors. Whatever the trend it is a lot easier to play around with your sheets and other linens than it is with your actual bed!

If all newly wedded couples follow this advice they will find that they love their bedroom furniture and the versatility of changing sheets and comforter sets as they like new colors or choose to paint the walls. Make life easy and think ahead before you buy furniture and your marriage will be smooth sailing!

Business Fashions For Women

Business fashion is a totally different theme. Up-to-date formal attire is a subtle thing. Though some conventional fashion types are what everybody opts for but women can also research personally to learn the ways to dress in formals. Career clothing for the women is branched into two categories:

  • business clothing
  • business casual clothing

If the career clothing for the woman requires being a business casual, a few important tips must be followed. Business casual is a particular type of clothing. It isn’t as informal as meant to be in a lounge or party. But at the same time it is not as formal as regular office wear; business fashion is a standard clothing code for the career women.

For office casual, pants and skirts do not have to be like a hardcore formal wear. They can be rather casual. They should neither be tight, nor be baggy. Go for solid colors and choose loose-fitting skirts. Career dressing for women should comprise skirts that reach till the knee when standing upright; it would be better if it doesn’t go above the thigh when she is sitting.

Sweaters can be worn as career clothing. The ladies sweaters shouldn’t have bold patterns or a low-cut. The shades and patterns of blouses should match well with the solid color of the pants and skirts. In business fashion a woman can depict her personal style. As long as her dresses present a professional look, they all should be fine.

In many offices there’s a regular business fashion dress code and hence the rules are different. Suits are standard even for the women. Conservative but smart dresses can be worn in such places as career dressing for women. Where as some companies even prefer skirts for women and some do not just care whether a women wears skirt, suits or whatever as long as it is presentable.

Do some research to really find out about the various business options of business fashion. When getting into a new job, it’ll be just fine if you buy a few formal sets. Go to your office, notice your colleagues, gather ideas and then buy some more.

Mens Urban Clothing

The inner city is the original melting pot of all that is new, old fashioned, trendy, unequaled and downright weird. So it isn’t surprising that urban styles originated in perhaps the biggest, busiest and the most urban city on the planet, New York. This is where all the urban fads started.

However, men’s urban clothing developed differently as it went around the world. Every individual city incorporated their own culture and individual preferences into this free flowing fashion style. The characteristics of the overall urban fashion scene are that the fashions are unique, in vogue and practical. It’s also obvious that urban clothing for women needs to be hip and in style, really functional and can adapt to the continuously evolving environment of the city scene.

Urban lifestyle is different. It is fast moving and one needs to be prepared for every eventuality. This is one reason why mainstream fashion, or the clothing one sees on the catwalk in Paris are not very well suitable for urban women. The rigid styling and the cloth used are going to be a hassle in the fast paced city streets. The urban woman should ideally wear fashions that are chic and edgy, and at the same time something bold yet practical, with undertones of ethnic influences. These are only some general guidelines of urban fashion for ladies.

Living life on the leading edge of fashion is not as hard as you might think. If you have a set of comfortable clothes, but overall may look boring, you just need to spice it up a little by mixing them with hip shoes such as boots with raised heels, or some terrific accessories like belts. It is best to make your clothing stand out some to make it urban style.

Other fashion extras that are considered as urban culture include large earrings, necklaces (wearing a couple with varying lengths can give you that urban appearance), cardigans and big belts. Certain items of clothing give hints of ethnic elements, whether in their shades, prints or patterns. Blending these kinds of clothes with simple accessories will give you the urban fashion statement you are looking for.

Urban wear is more than just fashion and clothes, over time it has become a personal statement. The person who is wearing it is stating their individuality. Before urban wear was only associated to hip hop artists. Now, not only hip hop artists are donning the colorful styles, and it has become a worldwide fashion trend.

Fashion for Women

A Mature woman exudes confidence, strength and knowledge. You have a wealth of life experience and best of all you know your body.Let us then look at Fashion for Women over 50.

“What do I wear in bed? Why, Chanel No 5 of course” – Marilyn Munroe

Now that’s decadence with a HINT of luxury!

Coco Chanel: was renowned for her immaculate style, two piece suits, quilted handbags, pearls and chic dresses. Karl Lagerfeld stated “. Coco always borrowed from the boys. She took their jackets, and made them into uniforms for women.” The House of Chanel is still as successful today. Why is that? Coco Chanel left a legacy, her designs were classic pieces that stood the test of time.

She was a true style icon of her time. Other iconic women amongst others would be: Audrey Hepburn, we associate her with the ultimate little black dress and elbow length evening gloves. Jackie (Kennedy) Onassis, she adopted the sophisticated style of Chanel, with her suits, slim fitting dresses and pillar box hats.

My point being here is about elegance, dressing well and looking chic. Just because we maybe 50 plus does not mean to say we are ‘over the hill’. Sack cloth and ashes should be reserved for biblical characters.

So ladies, rise up! Let us now go to our closets and be ruthless! Give to charity anything that you have not worn for 2 years. Then, let’s go shopping. Are you ready for this?

But first: A little research.

What are your best features?

We are going to make the best of them all.

What is your lifestyle like? Do you socialize much? Are you going on vacation soon? Is there a special occasion coming up?

Do you have a budget? If so (most of us do) what is it and how are we going to make the best of your budget?

Who do you admire in the fashion industry? Who’s style do you want to emulate? Better still create your own style.

What are the things you would like to change? For Example Hair – color and cut.

A professional stylist can work wonders and take years off you. Go to a stylist such as Vidal Sassoon/ Toni & Guy or a recommended top stylist for advice.

Next; Spa Treatment

As a minimum invest in a regular manicure and pedicure. Treat yourself every so often to a facial or massage. You could ask your family to buy vouchers for you for your birthday or special occasions. Money well spent.

Healthy living.

It is really essential that we all look at our diet and eat healthier. There is an obesity problem worldwide, it is so important that we look after ourselves. It is not just the mortality aspects, but morbidity too. Look at the consequences – diabetes, heart disease, circulatory problems.

A healthy diet, high in anti-oxidants, regular daily amounts of fruit, vegetables and protein. Minimize carbohydrates and fats. Drink more water. Take some exercise, walking even a little everyday doesn’t cost anything and you will certainly feel the benefits to your body and your skin.

Look after your skin, avoid the sun especially on your face or make sure you have a moderate SPF lotion. Moisturise day and night. Our bodies will inevitably change over time, we cannot stop the aging process, but we can make the best of it.

Are you ready to go shopping?

Look at your underwear. Thongs are out! Go for well-fitting knickers, Spanx, or full pants are so sexy and comfortable. It is important that you have the right underwear to give your shape definition, this is essential to make your clothes hang properly. Our breast shape and density changes after childbirth and after menopause, so get measured professionally.. Try on a shirt over the bra before you purchase it. You will see then the overall shape it gives you. Move around a little. Make sure you are not spilling over the top of the bra cup.

NEXT:

Keep in mind what you want to buy. For example: day wear, holiday wear, evening wear, or essential pieces for your wardrobe?

Don’t be tempted by sale or closeout items if it is not what you went out to shop for. Just because this evening dress was $500 and is it now $90! What a bargain? Not so if it becomes a ‘wardrobe filler’ and is never worn. Believe me we have all made that mistake.

Stores have personal shoppers, so use them to assist you. However, have the confidence to say no, if you are not happy with the style of the clothes chosen.

Don’t be afraid though, to come out of your comfort zone. The tendency is; if you wear ‘baggy’ casual or colorless clothes you will go for the same. Think out of the box. Think chic, think stylish, think flattering. Think of your style icon. What is it you want to achieve?

Fashion for Full-Figured Women

Plus size is the fashion term used for the sizes that fit full-figured women. It is the recourse for women who were apparently not born with slender or slim body types. This way, full-figured women can also stay fashionable and look good even if they don’t share the same size with supermodels Kate Moss, Heidi Klum or Claudia Schiffer.

One fashion tip that all full-figured women must know, and probably already know, is the efficacy of seeking refuge from the color black. If there is one fashion cliché that will eternally be in style, it is wearing black for plus-size women. Black creates an optical illusion that a body is smaller than it actually is. Therefore, a woman who is a size five can look at least a size four or even three if she will wear black.

Another advice for plus size women is to avoid horizontal prints. In fashion, not everything you see is what you get. Most things can be faked, or at least manipulated by optical illusions. Patterns and prints can make a woman’s body look fatter or skinnier. In this case, horizontal lines make you fat.

To avoid body-size discrimination and to cater to a particular target market, many fashion lines are now offering clothes in plus size. Some fashion brands even specifically tailor clothes for plus size women alone. This is good news for many women who find it hard to go between the racks of clothes that simply do not fit. Imagine the stress and mental torture of trying to squeeze in your body to an impossible size. With plus size clothes, voluptuous woman can be fashionable by choice. Now, buying clothes for them is also for fashion’s sake and not just for the sake of purchasing clothes just because these are the only ones that fit.

Fashion has evolves in a way that it is giving more choices to women regardless of their size and by considering what they really want to wear at a style that will suit them. Look at Queen Latifah and Oprah Winfrey. These two women are fashionable in their own right and in their own way. It just proves that being fashionable is not affected by your body type alone, but by simply knowing your body type, accepting it just the way it is and knowing the pieces that will work harmoniously with it.

Another great inspiration is top model Whitney Thompson. She is the winner of America’s Next Top Model Cycle 10. Believe it or not, she is the only plus size model among the brood yet she stood out because of her confidence and her taste for what is truly fashionable. For women who are brought down by their plus size body structure, stop hiding under sheets and layers of fabric and start showing the whole world that fashion is about exuding confidence and not by being a waiflike woman alone.

Fashion For the Full Size Woman

It is an open secret that most women are not size two and they are not six feet tall. And yet, the tiny percentage of the population who conforms to those dimensions seems to be the target of the fashion industry. Rarely do you see fashion that is targeted at the full size woman.

For years the full size woman has been treated as a minority while in fact they have been the majority. Full size women are not only mothers and housewives they are also business women. Trends are shifting and one even sees full size woman models here and there.

It is as if the fashion industry is slowly starting to wake up to the fact that there is a lucrative market for the taking. Not only are they also fashion conscious and sometimes dedicated fashion divas, but the full size woman can look absolutely spectacular in clothing designed for her posture.

There are several stores and boutiques that now specialize in full size clothing. They carry everything from intimate wear to business and evening wear. These stores not only know but they celebrate that real women do have curves, and they also aim to make plus size women looking and feeling beautiful and keeping pace with the latest fashion trends.

Just because a woman is not a size two does not mean that she is not active or even athletic. Plus size clothing, whilst long overdue, is quickly catching up with the fashion world. As the designers prepare for their spring and fall fashion shows many are also creating plus size fashion lines that will focus solely on the woman with curves. This is wonderful news for the full size women, because more and more they can look just as fashionable as that size two six foot tall model on the runway.

Designer plus size clothing must have quality, fashion and functionality in order for the plus size woman to buy their products.

Being a size two is not the norm in everyday life and while fashion designers have not entirely caught up with the real woman, they are getting there one stitch at a time and winning over consumers. Fashion for the full size woman is fun, flirty, fashionable, exciting and beautiful. Just like the women who wear the clothing.

Fashions For Ladies

I just love fashion for ladies. Dressing up for any occasion makes you feel happy and for women having an exclusive wardrobe is their dream come true. The market is flooded with stylish dresses for women and you can find a number of deals that are appealing. Fashions are changing every day,but the trends are coming around for the classy ladies who like to show off just a little.

Buying wholesale fashions is the best way in which retailers can get a range of women clothing at discounted prices. The same dresses when bought at an exclusive showroom might cost a lot. A good shopper can not only save money,and also have a wider range to choose from.

Apart from the wholesaling being made available through retail outlets, consumers can directly shop for these dresses online. The bulk quantity consumers also look out for are the right quality of fabric and the colors.

Getting designer dresses online is the best way in which women can choose the right wholesale products. They adorn the latest designs and fashions from the comforts of home. The consumer can be assured they are getting the best deal on the market.

The good news is designer dresses for ladies have become available to people of all incomes. Renowned shops and brands are offering discount prices on the dresses. Women love to adorn themselves in the most beautiful and remarkable manner. Dresses can bring out the beauty in women by highlighting her best features.

Buying from boutiques can pinch your pocket moreover the cost of purses and accessories can cost dearly in this recession. A few years ago designer dresses were completely out of the reach of most women. The prices sky- rocketed and only the wealthy could afford to purchase the dresses.

Fashion For Winter

Winter fashions are not the most appealing clothes for the majority for women. However, it’s really about planning how you put together the whole outfit that counts. I have been asked many times this season are wool coats in fashion for winter and the answer is very definitely yes!! But, you have to know which style to select so that you look fashionable. This article explains how to get the most out of your winter wardrobe and how to accessorize your winter clothing with a long woollen coat so you look great this season.

Lets face it, as temperatures begin to fall as we approach the winter months, most women are looking for a mixture of practical and fashionable clothing to see them through the winter. The colder weather makes it more of a challenge to be glamorous and fashionable at the same time. Quite often it takes quite a bit of searching in the shops to find suitable clothing to avoid looking frumpy and dowdy. My personal advice is to make use of the Internet search engines in addition to your local high street. Competition from the World Wide Web has resulted an abundance of great new styles and as a result the Internet is a great place to pick up new clothing trends for winter.

My tip for the warmest winter clothing is choose some fashionable women’s winter dresses that are both trendy and practical and dress these up with wool coats in fashion for winter. This combination of clothing will ensure you still look womanly. You could consider accessorizing with scarves if you want have a more dressy look. When you buy your winter coat you should make sure it is at least knee length as this is the fashion for this season. If you want to buy something longer, there is nothing stopping you doing so as this will only add to your overall comfort once those icy winds start to blow!

Conclusion

Layering clothing for winter cold is a common way to use wool coats that are currently in in fashion to make winter dresses a lot warmer and more comfortable. In fact, if you do it properly and plan your outfits you can give your winter outfits a very sophisticated look, especially if you add a wrap or shawl for an extra special effect.

Casual Fashion For Women

Casual fashion for women is quickly becoming a popular trend. Though some still choose to look their best every time they leave their home, many others are choosing to dress down a bit to be comfortable. However, it is important to know that fashion has to be sacrificed for comfort. Casual fashion can still allow a woman to look her best while not being so uncomfortable in heels and overly done dresses.

Purchase casual clothing the same way you would other styles. Build up a wardrobe of casual fashion that has a variety of basics in a few different colors. Denim and khaki work well for pants. Red, white, and black tops can complement most bottoms. The shoes should be casual as well, and most prefer to completely their outfits with a pair of comfy running shoes. Boots and sandals are also a staple of casual fashion for women.

Accessorize using sporty, casual items. You do not want to have a casual outfit paired with an expensive gold watch or sophisticated Prada bag. Instead, opt for less extravagant jewelry and watches to go with your casual fashion. Most people who dress in this style forego belts, as they are a sign of trying to be too dressy. Choose handbags with lots of color that look more like weekend carriers rather than something you would take to a job interview.

Just because you are dressing casual does not mean you should be sloppy. Iron your wardrobe before each wear. Avoid wearing articles of clothing with tears or holes, unless they were made that way. Ripped jeans are in style, but the tears should be in the right places and the pants should not look too worn. While rips are cool, wearing jeans that are 10 years old will probably not be. Also, avoid wearing clothes that fit too loose and are baggy on you. This will make you look lazy rather than casual.

If you are looking for more business casual fashion for women, khakis are generally the way to go. Most work places do not allow jeans, but if they do, these would be acceptable in a casual sense as well. Just be sure that the jeans are well taken care of, ironed before wear, and fit properly. Tops should not be too revealing, so tank tops and spaghetti straps would be too casual for your place of employment. Instead, wearing polos or button down shirts over a basic t-shirt are much better options.

For business casual shoes, you want to stay away from high heels. These are too formal and will not go well with casual fashion. Instead, pair your outfits with simple flats or sandals. Accessories can be a bit dressier than going completely casual, but even for work they should not be overdone. A simple belt and handbag that doesn’t offer too much of a dressy appearance will suffice.

Tips on Fashion for Women

It just goes without saying that many women are fashion queens. Of course, there are more men than women out there that care about their looks. Most women will not walk out of their house without having makeup on and there is nothing wrong with this. Just like the many women out there that own more than five pairs of shoes. It seems they have to have a pair of shoes to go with every dress and suit they have. If you are a woman and you are looking for some fashion tips, then you have come to the right article. Below, we are going to give you some fashion tips that every woman needs.

Tip number 1 – When you dye your hair, do not overdo it. There is nothing wrong with a daring woman. However, you need to at least make sure the color of your hair looks good with the color of your skin. For example, if you have really dark skin, then red may not look so good on you. If you have really light skin, then red, on the other hand, would look great on you.

Tip number 2 – Make your eyes stand out. How would you make your eyes stand out without wearing contact lenses? Believe it or not, the color of your hair will make those eyes stand out. If you have green eyes and you have dark red hair, then those eyes will be standing out. Blue eyes stand out when you have black or brown hair. You can also put makeup on in order to make them standout. However, don’t overdo it on the makeup part.

Tip number 3 – If you play up your eyes, then play down your lips. What do we mean by this? For example, if you put a lot of eye shadow on your eyes, then go for a clear lip gloss with a little hint of color. If you put on dark lipstick, then go with light eye shadow. When these two collide, it is not a pretty sight.

Tip number 4 – Don’t wear clothing that is too tight for you. The clothing you wear should fit snug, but it should not fit too snug. If you have a little extra weight on your body, then you can easily find clothes that will help the shape of your body.

These are four tips on fashion for women that you should take to heart. Who knows, if you pay attention to the tips we provided, you may be the talk of the crowd at the next party.
