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

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.

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.

First, keep in mind that it will be a bit chilly during the evening. Even those who live in warmer climates experience a bit of a chill during the winter months, especially after sundown. A blazer, pashmina wrap, faux fur coat, or soft sequined scarf will cover you up without cramping your style. Closed toe shoes are the best choice to keep your feet from freezing. If you are wearing a floor length gown, consider thick tights or leggings in a flesh tone. For additional warmth, you can wear a pair of satin gloves.

Dresses of any length and color are acceptable for this dance. Because it is winter, colors of the season do seem to lean towards the jewel tones.

This being the holiday season there’s a particular interest in and attention to dressing. Whether you’re a social butterfly with a full calendar of events to attend or you have limited your activity to some small intimate gatherings, what you wear will be important to you. The little black dress, also known as LBD, is a perennial wardrobe staple, the epitome of elegance, the term finding its origin in 1920s [its history stemming from the incomparable Coco C.

Custom Dress Shirt

In addition selection of fabric, customers can select nearly every aspect of a dress shirt as they go through the design process. Different types of pockets are a simple choice, but some people believe that a true dress shirt in the style of those found in Jermyn Street should never have a pocket while others are more pragmatic. The type of buttons that are used indicates a lot about the quality of a dress shirt with plastic buttons used on everyday shirts while real shell buttons such as Rivershell and Troca used on good quality shirts and Mother of Pearl are reserved for the best shirts. Button holes and threads can be in a contrasting colour to add a little flair to a shirt while the choice collars and cuffs is a key element of the style. A collar can vary from a simple tradional point design through to the … Read the rest
