Womens Fashion Tips For Looking Great

FASHIONABLY CASUAL CHIC

Many young women are making the shift from working in an office to working at home, many of them are opting to be stay-at-home moms or to start a home business so they can be more flexible. And many offices are finally allowing women to dress more casually at work, not just on Fridays, but all week long.

While students have always been able to dress as they please, more and more young women are now finding it possible to do the same. And retailers are stepping up to meet the rising demand for chic clothes that are comfortable and easy to care for, but look fashionable and trendy too.

Even so, it can be challenging to put together a unique wardrobe that is functional and looks good, too. If you are new to the work-at-home scene or a new mom, you may find yourself with a closet full of business wear and insufficient sportswear. What was once enough for weekends does not go very far when it becomes a daily thing. So, besides going shopping, how do you assemble a wardrobe of casual, comfy but fashionable pieces you can quickly pull together in the morning and still look great all day?

Start with what you love. You are now free to wear whatever you want, so get clear about what that is, You should already have some idea of your favorite looks from a quick check of your play clothes. And here’s a list of basics that will give you style, comfort, options and versatility.

(1) An assortment of cute tees, tanks and tops. Buy only those you love. You are dressing to please yourself. So remember, if you don’t feel good in it, it’s probably not worth a second look

(2) Jeans, khakis, cropped and yoga pants in neutral colors that will mix well with your tops. Straight-leg pants are best but you can throw in a few flairs or baggies for diversion. Add a few short cotton or khaki a-line skirts for days you want to look more girlie. You can also add a longer print skirt, but make sure it’s easy care and looks good wrinkled. Indian print skirts are ideal for this purpose. Finally, find a few pairs of shorts with a comfortable fit.

(3) Assorted active wear for cooler weather. Add a few sweater dresses to wear with leggings or tights for a change of pace. Long knit tunic tops work well with skinny jeans and leggings, too. You’ll need a few cardigans in neutral or jewel tones. Wear the neutrals over colors and the jewel tones over black. For comfort and warmth, add some colorful leg warmers, like those featured in the Marc by Marc Jacobs fall collection.

(4) Sundresses that can be dressed up or down, one in basic black. Sundresses can also be covered with a light cardigan or shawl when the weather turns cool.

(5) One casual blazer to wear over a tee when you want to look businesslike. A basic black outerwear jacket with a fashionable cut to go with everything in cold climates, or a light suede or leather jacket for mild winters. In chilly locales, augment the jacket with a great knit hat, some colorful knit scarves, and one great pair of gloves.

(6) Cheap jewelry to amuse yourself when you grow bored with your outfits. A selection of inexpensive ballet flats in colors, a few pair of flip-flops and some Keds in a bright color. Don’t forget an all-purpose bag. You may want to recycle your college backpack (great for stashing while shopping and it doubles as a diaper bag). Add a quality shoulder bag that goes everywhere and a small black clutch for evenings out.

(7) Fashionable claw-clips to pull your hair up and assorted ponytail bands for quick hair fixes.

(8) A plaid flannel work shirt (steal one from your boyfriend, husband or dad) to substitute for a cardigan or jacket.

(9) A baseball cap for bad hair days and a great pair of sunglasses.

(10) Recycle any business wear that can go casual. Some tanks and tees may work as well with jeans as with business suits, and you will save yourself from feeling like they are going to waste.

Petite Women Fashion Tips

If you are a petite woman, it is important for you to make sure that you are dressing properly. Of course, this is something that is important for any woman, regardless of their shape or size but if you are petite, it becomes especially important because you want to give the appearance that you are either leaner or longer. This can often be done using the clothing styles that are available, as well as in the hairstyles that you may choose. Here are a few suggestions that can help you in choosing something that will be right for you.

The first thing that needs to be considered is the items of clothing that are actually worn under the clothing. It doesn’t matter if you are wearing a 32a bra or any other size A bra, you need to make sure that it fits properly. The reason why that is the case, is because most women tend to feel that they are too petite to be fitted properly for any type of an undergarment. They may put up with straps falling off of their shoulders or they may actually fall out of their bra from time to time because it is too loose. This does not mean that your body is too petite for those items, it means that you are not wearing the right size.

As far as your dress is concerned, there are several different things that you can do to help make it appear as if you are taller. One of the things that you should consider is the possibility of dressing in a single color. This can be done all the way from the shoulders down to your shoes. If you are trying to add some slimming as well as some increase in your height, try going with a darker color because that always provides a slimming effect.

The lines of the dress are also something that need to be considered very carefully. If you are petite, it is important for you to avoid any type of vertical lines because they can make you look rounder. A vertical line is going to make you appear taller and can also make you appear leaner. It is not always necessary for you to wear stripes in order to achieve this purpose. If the clothing you choose to wear has any type of vertical line, it is likely that it is going to achieve the look that you are desiring.

One other thing that you should consider doing is wearing higher heels than usual. This not only helps to add to the illusion that you are taller, and actually adds height to your body. If you’re going to be wearing high heels, you can wear slingbacks or pumps in order to achieve that purpose. One thing that you would want to avoid, however, is too many straps that go up the legs. Although these may look good, they can actually help to break up the vertical lines that you are using in order to increase your height and can make you look as if you are shorter.
