fashion18

This winter has really seen some unique and chic styles hitting the catwalk, and it hasn’t taken shops long to stock every item they possibly can. As the cold and crisp months draw in, one item really making a statement this winter is the woman’s jumper. However they are not just plain boring styles, but an array of colourful patterns and beautiful knitting has really brought the jumper into its own world.

If you are looking to buy a jumper then a Christmas style jumper will definitely make a fashion statement as they are really in hot demand at the moment. Fairisle and snowflake patterns are really popular and they really aren’t that expensive. In fact there are many online retailers who are selling Christmas jumpers well under 20. An item that goes well with a winter jumper is a knitted hat, and they certainly look cute out in the cold weather, plus there are so many styles and designs out there available to buy that finding one which suits you is a very simple task. Many knitted hats come with matching gloves and scarves, so you really can wrap up warm this winter whilst looking cosy and fashionable.

Carrying on with the knitted theme this winter, cardigans seem to be out there in their droves and many celebrities have been wearing them out and about recently. When December settles in fully, layers really are the most important thing to consider and having a knitted jumper or cardigan will really make that difference whilst still making you the envy of fashionistas. Knitted clothing seems to be available in every colour under the sun, and there are many different styles out there to choose from. Even knitted skirts are making an appearance this winter and teamed up with leather brogues can look really stylish and elegant. These days’ people simply don’t have the time to make a trip down to the local shops and spend hours searching through clothing rails for something to wear. The internet can make the process of choosing out an outfit simple, and you might even be surprised just how much money you can save by a click of a mouse. Many online fashion retailers offer a -just in’ section, so you can see what the latest trends and styles out there are, this makes it easier to keep up with the trend setters out there and you can really impress your friends by wearing the latest item before everybody else.

For the latest Women’s Jumpers, look online as there are hundreds of deals on Cheap Womens Clothing for you to choose from.

Designers With Day Jobs, Marni, Etc.

Have you ever wondered how it is that haute couture fashion houses such as Marni, Dries Van Noten and Ann Demeulemeester make money? One possible answer: by being open to opportunities.

Designing uniforms

Earlier this week, the staff at Kensington Palace unveiled their new uniforms, which were designed by high-end British fashion label Jaeger. Won’t be long before Prince William and Kate Middleton can take up residence alongside the gold-trimmed staff.

Antwerp, Belgium-based designer Dries Van Noten may not produce uniforms, but he sure seems to have been inspired by them. Some of his most recent looks have been described as military.

Designing accessories

Dries Van Noten’s peplum pants may have been the talk of Paris during Fashion Week this spring, but one suspects that his shades, which have also been generating a lot of buzz, may outperform the peplum pants at the cash register.

Designing special lines for big-name retailers

Consuelo Castiglioni of Italian fashion house Marni recently designed a capsule wardrobe for Swedish clothing giant, H&M. A capsule collection is a small number of pieces that are meant to be mixed and matched.

In so doing, Marni is following in the footsteps of such designers as Walter Van Beirendonck (who, coincidentally, went to the same Antwerp fashion academy as Dries Van Noten and Ann Demeulemeester, another acclaimed Belgian designer. More about Demeulemeester below!)

Like Castiglioni of Marni, Dries Van Noten and Ann Demeulemeester’s co-alumnus, Walter Van Beirendonck designs a line of clothing for a retail chain, Belgium’s JBC.

Unlike Castiglioni of Marni, though, Van Beirendonck’s lower-end line is for children.

Designing special lines for& websites?

Ann Demeulemeester, along with Dries Van Noten, Walter Van Beirendonck and several other young co-alumnni of the same influential Antwerp fashion school, broke onto the fashion scene by driving a truck filled with samples to London Fashion Week. Leave it to her to find a new way to distinguish herself in the fashion world.

In November 2011, Ann Demeulemeester released a four-piece capsule collection for sale online only.

An all-black unisex collection for Christmas time? How very Ann Demeulemeester!

Having their own shop

Ann Demeulemeester has famously refused to work for any of the major fashion houses that have reportedly offered her a job. She has been running her own shop in Antwerp for well over a decade now.

Another purely Ann Demeulemeester specialty?

This designer prefers not to advertise, relying on word of mouth alone.

It seems that in today’s economy even haute couture designers must be creative about how it is that they make money. Because man, it would seem, can not live by peplum pants alone. Marni and Dries Van Noten, Ann Demeulemeester and Walter Van Beirendonck, are all examples of labels and designers with an eye to new opportunities in a tough market.

Tips On How To Find The Right Wedding Dress

fashion17

It is very crucial for you to identify the most flattering shape for your figure when it comes to selecting a wedding dress for your big day. This will not only ensure that your looks on your wedding day turns out to be stunning but also that you feel more comfortable. This page briefly outlines the descriptions that will act as a guide to assess your body type before choosing your perfect wedding dressing. This outline provides you with the dos and donts for each body type.

Hourglass
If you are one of those ladies with big hips, big chests, as well as thin waists then consider the following recommendations:

Wedding Dress Dos: the best wedding dress that will show off your figure perfectly is an A-line wedding dress that comes with a dropped waist. You can wear it with a sweetheart neckline to display your chest in an ideal manner. Alternatively, you can consider something that is a bit curvaceous such as a fit-and-flare gown(trumpet or mermaid style can do better)
Wedding Dress Don’ts: never even think of put on a ball gown or Empire-waist silhouette; it may mess your figure up and make you appear disproportioned.

Short Waist
In case you have a naturally proportioned body then you have an advantage of maintaining your body shape and figure even if your weight fluctuates between the time of purchasing the wedding dress and the wedding day. This simplifies things for you because you can purchase the dress anytime and keep until the wedding day without any issues arising.

Wedding Dress Dos: try a Princess-line silhouette with a portrait or halter neckline, this will help in elongating your figure.
Wedding Dress Don’ts: you can try any other dress apart from a sheath; it might exaggerate your short waist.

Thick Waist
Your figure is almost same as the one described above but with an undefined waist and with a straight line from your shoulders to your hips.

Wedding Dress Dos: the ideal dress for you is the Empire-waist wedding dress; this dress is good at giving a long and lean appearance to figures like yours.
Wedding Dress Don’ts: the worst is for you to put on a Princess-line or Basque waist-it will draw a lot of attention to your middle.

Pear Shape
If your figure is heavy at the bottom and small at the top just like a pear, then consider the following:

Wedding Dress Dos: A strapless ball gown or a Basque waist will be more suitable for your figure.
Wedding Dress Don’ts: consider avoiding a sheath, frankly, mermaid, and trumpet sty gowns.

Wedding dress budgets are hardly ever exact

images1

There are so many wedding details that you need to care, but it is equally important that you take the time to find the perfect flower girl dresses for you. To help, we’ve come up with a list of wedding dress tips for how you can look your best on your wedding day.

Tip 1: Is constantly going to your groom for tips laying down? Find a friend or relative who will gladly accompany you on your trips to the bridal shop.

Unless your groom is female fashion expert, is not going to be helpful when asked about the wedding dress collar or neckline perfect for you. Find a partner or co-confident enough for second and third opinions.

Tip 2: Set a budget, and try to follow.

Wedding dress budgets are hardly ever exact. You may need to spend more or you might end up spending less than expected. The point is to have a budget in mind can help you control the urge to splurge on your very special dress. Try your hardest to follow your dress budget, and pray that you find a great wedding dress bargain that will make your groom proud.

Tip 3: Consider the color of your dress.

You can stick with tradition and go for white, but if you want to add some color to your gown, then by all means, find the perfect color for you. Today, a number of modern brides are choosing colored wedding dresses instead of plain white. Stand out in the sea of white-clad brides by going for a color eye-popping.

You may want to take the season into consideration when choosing the color of your wedding dress, or just go for what flatters your complexion best. Also be prepared for possible adverse reactions from your traditional guests. Console yourself with the thought that it’s your wedding, and you can wear blue or even black if you want.

Tip 4: Find the length of the right wedding dress.

Yes, wedding gowns can be short or long, depending on the type of ceremony you’re having and where you’re planning to have it. There is a very basic rule when it comes to choosing the perfect wedding dress length, and is based on the length of your dress at the ceremony officially.

A Look At Prom Dress Hire

fashion3

Going to prom can be a big event and often times, women look into getting prom dresses that they can rent, rather than purchasing one. Prom dress hire companies provide a prom dress that can be rented, so that you don’t have to spend all of the money that it takes to buy one. Purchasing a prom dress can cost a lot of money and that is why so many girls are looking into prom dress hire services. Rather than spending all the money that it takes to get a prom dress, they can rent one and save hundreds of dollars. Prom dresses today are incredibly expensive. In fact, if you were to buy one for your daughter, you would have to spend hundreds of dollars on the dress. It’s highly likely that you will never where the stress again, so why should you spend this kind of cash? As an alternative, you can use a prom dress hire business. This is just like how a man rent a tux. Instead, it can be used by women to rent a dress.

Finding a prom dress hire company where you live can sometimes be difficult. As an alternative to shopping for one locally, why not check online? There are lots of prom dress manufacturers that have online websites where you can rent the dress and ship it back to them after you are done with the event. While you won’t be able to try on the dress beforehand, as long as you provide all of the correct measurements for your body, the dress should that you without issues. If it does not fit or you do not like the style or color of the dress, you can send it back and get a different one. Online websites that offer prom dress hire services have very flexible terms and conditions. They allow you to send back your items because they know how frustrating it can be to purchase clothing online and not have it match what you are thinking it was going to look like. This can be especially frustrating when you are just renting the dress and not actually buying it.

Breastfeeding Tops You Can Take To The Catwalk

images13

Who says you can’t wear anything stylish while you’re pregnant or nursing? The modern woman knows that pregnancy or nursing a child does not mean that she has to wear sacks or shapeless clothing. Wearing sacks while pregnant can only be pulled off by gorgeous celebrity mums such as Angelina Jolie or Halle Berry, but not if you’re the average type of woman who juggles a job and the family life.

So, if you want to look good during pregnancy or while you are nursing, check out these fashion tips on how you can mix and match those maternity clothes and breastfeeding tops.

1.The most basic breastfeeding and maternity tops can be paired with stylish crocheted cardigans or a print scarf. If your shirt has prints on them, however, make sure that you choose a plain scarf or coat so you would not have that “busy” look. Cropped and open weave cardigans can look good on a pregnant or nursing mum.

2.Mix and match colours wisely. No, that blue vest and orange shirt do not match, so you better put it back inside your closet. A pink shirt and green pants do not look good on a woman also, whether she is pregnant or otherwise. A combination of pink and green only works on the catwalk, not on the crib or dinner table. Match colours that are near each other in the colour wheel.

3.Neutral colours, such as white, gray, black, and brown, would look good on any woman. Black breastfeeding tops and maternity clothes are especially helpful in camouflaging the shape of a swollen belly or accumulated weight post-pregnancy. White maternity tops can cool you down during hot summer months, while gray will match shirts of any colour. Just don’t wear brown trousers with green shirts or black shoes.

4.Maternity and nursing dresses are great during spring and summer. Stay away from sheaths that will emphasize your protruding tummy and go for empire cut dresses with enough space on the tummy area that will accommodate your expanding waistline.

5.You can wear these maternity or nursing clothes even in different occasions. Out on a date with your husband? Then try a V neck red shirt that you can pair with stretchy trousers. Wear a knitted tunic or a turtleneck shirt on your next get-together with friends. Picnics and outings on the beach can be comfortable with dresses or tunics designed especially for pregnancy or nursing.

6.Go for details, but don’t overdo them. One of the best details for mums is the broderie Anglaise which can be seen on skirts and paired with chic breastfeeding tops. Go easy on the ruffles and laces. If you’re a minimalist, look for clothes with classic designs but those that will enhance your femininity.

Keep in mind that you don’t have a responsibility to look frumpy just because you’re pregnant or you’ve just given birth. You can mix and match maternity tops and other maternity clothes to suit your own style.
