Types Of Clutch Purses

Large clutch purses are usually made of very sturdy and strong fabrics like patent leather, denim, canvas etc. They might have a handle to hold them or a flap on top to keep everything inside in place. One can clutch these by the handle or just by the flap with their hand. Some of them come with zippered pockets on the inside, but depends on how large the purse is. If the purse isn’t too big, there is usually not any additional pocket inside.

Smaller clutch purses have more choice in fabrics in general. They can be made of satin, patent leather, polyester, chiffon, even cotton. They are mostly embellished with rhinestones, beads and sequins or crystals of some kind. The closure on small clutch purses is a very important part of the whole piece, because they are usually made very artistically and are decorated with rhinestones and beads. The … Read the rest

Style Cardigans Differently

Solid colored sweaters are the easiest to style as they can be paired with any other color or pattern. Try a muted grey worn over a multi-colored printed tank top and white shorts for a summery look. Accessorize with espadrilles and a casual leather clutch purse to finish it off! If you want a brighter palette, try a teal or mustard knit over a fitted black top, short denim skirt and funky wedges. Carry a tote and some funky crystal earrings for some extra bling. Or try a bright red cardy over a black and white striped dress and yellow heels for an unexpected extra pop of color!

Mixing prints and textures may be intimidating but the great thing about cardigans is if you feel intimidated or insecure about it, you can always take it off. Try pairing a teal lace dress with a fitted bodice under a loose black … Read the rest

Combine and Wear Spots and Stripes in the One Outfit

When designers put these two together, the bottom half is predominantly the spotted skirt. Spots are more slimming than stripes and that is why designers do this. In a Westfield Trend Report catalogue I noticed a model wearing a spotted skirt teamed with a white blazer and a striped top. A white blazer was chosen because her skirt had more white than black in it as the spots were small and in an irregular pattern. Her simple top had an equal amount of black & white narrow stripes. The secret is in only seeing a small amount of the stripes so that the combinations are in unequal proportions. With no matching colour in-between, spots and stripes together can look clownish. To keep it modern, add some colour in your accessories. Coloured shoes or coloured bangles work well. To look super-stylish, I would add either matching coloured shoes and bangle and … Read the rest

Choose Women’s Jackets and Coats

Women’s jackets and coats are very useful items of clothing; they are versatile and are definitely an incredible fashion statement. There are many fashionable coats on the market which can be described as both stylish and trendy. So where can you find these attractive pieces?

Of course, you need to know what size you want, but you also have to decide on the brand. Online shops offer very attractive deals and prices. While a savvy shopper can browse online and therefore come across the best deals, first-timers should always visit a retail store to check which size fits them best. Or, if they want, they can order online immediately, but should do so only from stores that offer a 100% refund.

Branded goods are always better (according to most people), but they are definitely more expensive than ones which are not branded. Does this mean that non-branded ones are of … Read the rest

Original Trench Coats By Aquascutum and Burberry

During 1879 Thomas Burberry invented gabardine fabrics to be applied to trench coat designs and productions. In 1901 Thomas Burberry submitted his designs to the United Kingdom War Office. Which was then used for militant wear and in the Second World War he revamped the design to a shorter length and making the coat more practical to enable the soldiers with more mobility. When re-designing the trench coat, Thomas Burberry had to ensure that he applied the features demanded by the regulations of the Greatcoat,leisure wear and the features of the military waterproof cape. The British Army but only those with the ranking of Officers and Warrant Officers Class 1 wore these. The trench coats had shoulder straps for epaulettes, large pockets to store their maps and flaps and vents for odor prevention. Burberry like Aquascutum then also designed trench coats for public use and it was suggested that Thomas … Read the rest
