What’s Hot: All White Trend

Summer is just around the corner (if you’re in the Southern hemisphere) and everyone is excitedly packing away their winter wardrobes and bringing out their summer gear to play. We’re pretty over the gloomy days, cold winds and wet weather. Bring on summer!

One of the hottest trend this summer that is wearing all white head to toe. Some color advocate fashionistas may believe all white outfits are rather conservative and plain, wearing white is brave. Contrary to belief, wearing all white will make you stand out. Amongst the sea of blacks, monochromes, prints and colors, the all white outfit is simple a block of chic and sophistication. The all white look is also fabulous to wear all season round and as trends come and goes, white will remain effortlessly sophisticated, sassy and ultra polished.

All Over White: HOT

White also accentuates your curves and flaws more evidently, so it’s not a pick for those with uncertainties about unfavored body parts. Further, food and drink sources are the enemies for the day.

Celebs Are Loving All White

While wearing all white is pretty fail-proof there are certain ways in which you can style wearing all white to looking ultra chic and refreshing. Here are five top tips for nailing the all white look.

1. White + lace

The combination of white and lace merely speaks timeless feminine and sophistication style. Lace channels that ladylike sexiness like no other fabric whilst making a chic statement. Lace comes in many varieties of sheerness so experiment up with the lace transparencies.

2. White + transparency

You’re probably not going to go all out sheer like that on the catwalk but do embrace the sheer side of all white transparency for the season. While this look is runway worthy, it isn’t practical for or is a pick for everyday outfit pick. It would be a sensible choice to opt for oueces that show just the right amount of transparency that you are comfortable with. Accessorize with minimalist silver jewellery and accessories to keep the look chic and flawless.

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.

The Four Universally Flattering Clothing Colours

Have you ever noticed some women are always so impeccably styled? From the fashion trends they rock, to their chic and million dollar style? Everything seems so perfectly coordinated.

Have you perhaps noticed their choices of colors of their clothing pieces?

Some colors tend to suit some people better than others as a result of their skin tone and hair color. By choosing the right color to enhance your skin and hair shade, you will naturally and effortlessly compliment the rest of your look.

Some colors work for all skin and hair tones because they lay in the middle of the color spectrum, meaning they have the perfect balance of the warm and cool shades.

Here are four clothing colours that are universally flattering on any skin colour or hair shade.

Flattering color 1:  Eggplant purple

There are many shades of purple and all beautiful in their own rights. The “perfect purple” is the eggplant purple. It is a very versatile shade like black and navy but is a more exciting . It makes a great alternative to the conventional blacks and should also form as a wardrobe staple color.

Flattering color 2: Red

Whilst being one of the most universally flattering clothing colors, it is not always the color of choice.  Red is a bold color and demands attention, and gets it. The color red being associated with confidence, sexiness and attention is considered a flattering colour because it the central color of the color spectrum. A very bright and bold colour it compliments every skin tone and hair color, therefore making it a great color to have in your wardrobe to dress up or down, day or night.

Flattering color 3: Teal

On the color spectrum teal sits directly opposite pink. What this means is that opposite colors compliment each other beautifully. When you wear a teal colored clothing item, it will naturally enhance the healthy pink flush of your cheeks for a beautiful and natural feminine look. Besides being a stunning color that suits everyone it is a color that can be worn all year around. Unlike it’s sister counterpart, turquoise – is usually more worn and preferred as a summer look and color to relect the fun factor.

Flattering color 4: Blush rose

Blush rose is a shade between light pink and peach as the name rightfully describes. And yes, grown women can still wear pink without looking like they hadn’t stepped out of their childhood years. You can wear this beautiful color and still look sophisticated. Blush rose is more of a neutral color than it is a pastel which is versatile to go with any other clothing color combination.
