Cheryl Cole Get Her Look…For Less

This backless bodycon black dress is perfect for a cocktail occasion, a night out on the town or even a hot date with your man.

To ensure your knock this look out of the park, ensure to invest in a bit of prep time. Follow these tips below on how to wear a backless black dress and look amazing.

  1. Slough away the dead skin with a gentle loofah and bodywash or scrub. Be aware to not be too vigorous or do this too often if you have sensitive skin as too much or harsh scrubbing may irritate those with sensitive. Apply a light moisturizer or lotion to your back to keep your skin in tip top condition. If desired, apply a self tanner to your body and back. Tanned skin accentuates the muscles in your back, so bring on sexy back!
  2. Avoid any unsightly bra straps. If you have a small bust you can probably get away with not wearing a bra. However, you should still aim to smooth out the look to prevent any visibility through the dress with nude colored nipple covers.
  3. Keep accessories to a minimal with a backless dress as the dress in itself makes a very bold statement. Too many accessories with this backless black bodycon dress makes the look a bit over the top and draws the attention away of the dress. A simple pair of earrings or delicate bracelet or a cocktail ring will add just the perfect touch to complete your look.
  4. Try to avoid any accessories that will cover your back such as necklaces with long or bulky clasps that can take the attention away from your sexy back and dress!
  5. Wear your hair up to full show your accentuated feature, your back. The best hairstyle when wearing a backless dress is some updo that is styled up and away from your neck and back. Yes, sure you have luxurious tresses but there’s no point in wearing a stunning sexy backless dress and it covers your back.
  6. Lastly, proper posture will make or break a backless dress. Ensure you wear your sexy backless black bodycon dress with confidence! Hold your head high, shoulders back and chest out. Good posture as opposed to hunched over will make your back look better and translate over to making your overall look sexier. Confidence is sexy so wear your dress to match your attitude!

Still Trending Strong: Peplums

When the peplum trend first hit the fashion scene a few seasons ago, there was mixed reactions to this style trend.

Some women embraced the peplum trend while some women shook their heads to this style.

It was one of those love it or hate it trend.

For the women who embraced the style. the saw the peplum’s power of creating multiple different looks, in different apparel pieces and for different occasions.

On the other hand, it is also understandable to those women who weren’t that keen on the peplum trend. Many women flinch at the idea of adding extra bulk around their torso.

That is a realistic thought but rather than see the peplum as contemptuous to your figure, learn to love the peplum style that will enhance, highlight and flatter your curves.

The first and foremost thing to do is determine what your body shape is.

Is it….

  • An hourglass shape?
  • Inverted triangle shape?
  • Triangle shape?
  • Square shape?

body-shapesHere’s how to pick the best peplum style for your body shape:

Hourglass:

Curvy girls need not to be afraid of the peplum! In fact, it looks feminine and accentuate your curves beautifully. Being an hourglass shape means that you are already well proportioned and do not need to add any extra curves to your hip area. To best accentuate your curves, steer clear from picking pepulms with bold patterns and stripes around the hips area as this will make you appear unecessarily fuller.

Celebs with an hourglass shape includes:

  • Jennifer Lopez
  • Kim Kardashian
  • Kate Winslet
  • Beyonce
  • Scarlett Johansson

Wedge/Inverted Triangle:

This type of body shape defines women with broader upper body than the lower body. The peplum works wonderfully to balance out your shape. You can afford to pick details and pattern with your peplum dress.

Celebs with a wedge/inverted triangle shape includes:

  • Jessica Alba
  • Jessica Biel
  • Megan Fox
  • Angelina Jolie
  • Britney Spears

Triangle:

Women with a triangular body shape is the reverse of the wedge/ inverted triangle. You will have narrower shoulders and waist than your hips. You may have a small bust and large hips. To best choose a peplum for the triangle body shape, opt for an interesting neckline pepulm dress and minimal frills around the hip area to avoid making your lower half look bulk.

Celebs with a triangle shape includes:

  • Rihanna
  • Naomi Campbell
  • Teri Hatcher
  • Giselle Bundchen
  • Reneé Zellweger

Rectangle Body Shape:

The rectangular body shape is characterized by the same shape being carried from the top to the lower body, meaning, the proportions are very similar with the shoulders and hips.

The peplum can add extra definition to wear it is needed, being around the hips and butt. Pick a peplum dress that is fitted up top and bottom and a full peplum to show off your curves. You can also incorporate bright colors, prints or color block for an amazing look.

Celebs with a rectangular shape includes:

  • Cameron Diaz
  • Gwyneth Paltrow
  • Anne Hathaway
  • Jennifer Garner
  • Naomi Watts

Golden Girl: How To Wear A Gold Dress

Gold used to be a color that the younger women would turn their backs on because it was often perceived as an “old lady” color.

That perception has certainly changed of late with the mad craze for all things gold, gold and more gold!

Gold is now considered one of the hottest fashion colors and a must have color for every fashionista out there; both in clothing and fashion accessories.

Gold adds a dazzling touch to your outfit and it can be styled so many different ways that is glam and possesses unmatched style statement.

Gold is super versatile and you can go for a  statement bold outfit or more subtle with jewellery and accessories.

How To Wear A Gold Dress

Doning a gold dress will ensure all eyes are on you as you step into the room. And you want all eyes on you for the right reason.

How?

  • Choose a dress that really compliments your body shape. Pick a style of dress that you love and one that makes you feel and look totally fabulous. The easy way to do this is pick a body feature of yours that you really like. Your cleavage? Your legs? Your booty? Go ahead and pick a dress that will highlight the feature you want to show off.
  • Wear the gold dress  according to the occasion. For a fancier occasion, you can go all out glam with the gold dress with darker eye makeup. Go for a bronze tone eyeshadow and experiment with a smokey bronze with a gold eyeshadow or glitter for that extra pizzaz. Add sparkly gold jewellery to compliment the occasion and a pair of killer heels with gold tone accents. Gold does not have to be all for a dressier occasion and you can dress it down by the choice of accessories and other clothing pieces you pair with gold. Wear a denim jacket and a pair of boots to carry a casual yet still uber chic look.
  • Confidence. Yes. Wearing gold requires confidence. Who would’ve thought? When you wear the gold dress, you will stand out. The goal here is to look effortlessly chic and ooze confidence. The point here is that you are making a bold statement, featuring the dress. You want to turn heads and wow people, not only with the gold dress but also with the way you carry yourself. The key is, you should feel good about what you’re wearing. This will really shine through and project the confidence. This is the reason for pointer #1 when we say to choose a dress you really love, highlights your best feature/s and makes you look stunning. When you feel good, you look fabulous.

Style Trend: Monochromatic Color

Move over color blocking, monochromatic color is the new the new hot trend.

So what exactly does dressing monochromatic involve? It is simply wearing one color from head to toe. This trend is currently trending on the fashion scene and being worn in various shades.

One of the best thing about this trend is you can really pick your favorite color, stick with it and create your entire outfit from it. Pretty great right?  Maybe.

If done correctly, you’d look like you were styled straight from the catwalk. Styled wrongly, the look may resemble something of a member from the Power Rangers.

Check out these celebs who nailed the look.

These celebs totally nailed the look and here’s how to wear the monochrome color trend and look uber chic.

  1. Play with proportions and textures: Wear with high waist pants for interest and a sheer blouse for a subtle shading contrast.
  1. Show some leg: Try a single hue in a textured ensemble and make it fun and flirty in a shorts cut.
  1. Break it up with neutrals: For the more conservative, add a basic, neutral colored top underneath.
