Womens Fashion Tips For Spring Fashion

When it comes to womens fashion in order to stay in fashion you have to watch each season’s runway designs so that you can make sure that you are current and up-to-date. With that in mind, now that we are getting close to the end of snowstorms and close to warmer weather it is time to update your spring wardrobe so that you are prepared from the first time you step out your door into the breezy fresh air of spring. In order to get to this point however you may want to take a look at the following trends and tips for dressing right this spring.

First of all, this spring the military designs of winter will carry over, only this time they will worked into lighter materials. You cannot go wrong with any spring jacket or raincoat that has a military barred style down the front or buttons across the breast. Although you can still get away with short hipster raincoats, the style is slowly switching towards longer below the butt length and even down to the knee if you pair the coat with a nice pair of suede or leather boots to lengthen your legs.

Next up in spring designs is the abstract trend, which is also sometimes referred to as the architectural design, and is lighting up the catwalks across the globe. The essence of this womens fashion trend is sharp cuts and accents that really make a shirt, dress, or skirt look sharp, edgy and modern. Traditionally if you stick to soft hues with sharp black edging or accents you will be ok, but if you want to push the fashion envelope you may want to create your own abstract clothing by pairing solids with sharp jewelry that stands out across the clothing.

Speaking of dresses, this season in womens fashion length is very important as very short and very long is way out. Although last autumn may have been filled with tights and short sweaters creating the mini look, minis are still very much out and you need to be careful to choose a more modest length if you want to be in fashion. While mid thigh lengths are ok, the best cut for most dresses and skirts during spring will be gently above the knee although there is room for a little variation. Extremely long is also back out so try to avoid the flowing look.

Finally, if you the last thing that you will need in your closet this spring are some floral prints, but not the large floral prints that make you look like drapes. Instead, choose floral prints that are small and detailed and appear more like prints then flowers. Pair this look with a military jacket or tunic shirt and you will have a look that will easily make you pop out to anyone walking by on the street. Toss in some boots and you will be just about as close to the runway as you can get while strolling through your daily routine.

 

 

Fashion Tips All Men Should Know

Here are a few fashion essentials all modern men should be aware of. Many of them are not even about fashion but help you look the part. This will be good news for the army of men out there not wanting to follow fashion but still wanting to impress.

Improve your posture

Perhaps the biggest fashion tip of all has nothing to do with fashion itself. It’s about improving your posture when you walk, when you stand and when you sit. An army of office workers today slouch at their desk and walk like their grandparents.

Stand straight, pull back your shoulders, push that ribcage out and look straight ahead, not down to the ground. You will exude confidence and for a man, this is worth much more than what the most expensive suit can achieve and is what makes you manly in the eyes of women: confidence to tackle all of life’s difficulty, confidence in your ability to overcome adversity.

Look after your clothes and they will look after you

To store your shirts and suits in better conditions and for longer, use wide and stout coat-hangers. Thin metal hangers leave creases and sometimes stain the fabric. With heavy suits, they even get bent. Wide and rounded plastic hangers are cheap and do the job just fine, no need to go for the more expensive wooden hanger.

Learn how to repair a button. Man is in the 21st century and many live alone. There is no point in relying on a woman to do something as simple as that. In fact, it makes you look manlier in that you do not shy away from manipulating something as insignificant and small as a needle and helps you ascertain your independence.

And the unavoidable fashion tips

It is OK to have a few mismatched items of menswear. Men are men, they do not have handbags that need to match shoes, gloves that need to match scarfs and hats, matching earring and necklace sets and so on. So if you wear a brown belt and dark brown shoes with black trousers, it’s not the end of the world as long as your clothes look smart and clean. Don’t stress unduly about colour coordination.

Since when was a denim shirt a proper shirt? Leave them alone or if you really love denim, at least don’t wear them together will denim jeans. Denim shirts are best worn over a t-shirt or vest when the weather is neither warm nor cold enough to warrant a sweater or jacket.

Wear your clothes with pride and care. No more hanging trousers (since when was that fashionable?), no ties askew, shirts-sleeves buttoned up, shoes well-polished.

To carry on the topic of hanging trousers, underwear is just that – best kept under clothes so please, no trousers hanging half-way down the bum, no designer-branded underwear elastic band showing above the trouser belt. No guy wants to know what underwear brand you favour.

Use these fashion essentials in your everyday life without becoming a fashion slave. Improve your posture and watch your physical and psychological well-being improve, not to mention your success with women. Focus not on colour coordination but watch that what you wear is smart and wear proudly.

Fashion Tips for Plus Sized Women

It is not a sin to be curvy, healthy or plus sized. A fit and healthy body is much better than a skinny one. It is wrong to repent if you are a plus sized woman and is not able to select the right dress for yourself. Hence, instead of lamenting over your body size, knowing some fashion tips can really help you to wear your dress in a comfortable and stylish manner.

Avoid wearing Tight clothes

Skin hugging clothes are an absolute disaster for plus sized women. Such clothes accentuate the body parts and make you look odd. Always keep a measuring tape handy whenever you plan to shop for clothes and know your exact measurements. Do not buy such dresses which are less in size than your actual one. Choose those clothes which are dark colored as they hide your weight to a considerable extent.

Choose the right accessories

Accessories can really spruce up your look if worn in the right way. Many fashion outlets which sell plus sized dresses for women offer accessories that complement those clothes. You can either purchase those clothes or can also try something creative. For instance: adding a scarf around your neck along with the dress will really make you look beautiful. Remember, you can replace a belt and use a scarf instead when you are wearing a jeans to create a fashionable look.

Wear the proper footwear

You can select the footwear according to your choice, but resist from wearing high heals or stilettos as it might be heavier for them to carry off your weight. Moreover, you might also face difficulty to walk comfortably by wearing them. Online shopping stores are the best place to find the right foot wears.

Hairdo

When it comes to hairstyle, you really have to manage way in such a manner that it looks stylish. Do you know that a right hairstyle can make you look much slimmer than your look? Yes, keeping the right mane really work wonders. Do not keep long hair, rather wear a short style instead. Do not keep it too short like a bob cut. Keep your curls around your neck so that it looks beautiful. Ponytail does not look good as they tend to highlight the chubby cheeks and the round portions of the face. Hence, do not try them. If you still have difficulty finding out the right hairstyle, seek the advice of a good hairstylist.
