Christmas Beach Outing

Having a hard time in finding what to wear to the your next beach outing, not to worry we have got you covered.

Bikini might not always be the best wear to the beach after all, well that depends on where you are in the globe and how proud you are with your body.

There are other cool apparels that you can don to the beach and look really sexy.  And if you are spending your vacation in a beach house you gotta at least not fill up your box with bikini’s.

Denim Shorts (ripped & normal), Cropped tops, short romper, off shoulder flowing tops, stylish/ athletic top bra, bodycon dress, long slit skirt, scarfs, beach hat, Kimono  and even jumpsuits can all be styled for the beach.

When shopping for bikini alternative, consider going for chiffon, silk, knitted, or even spandex materials.  For the beach – No Cotton material, just any clothing that is light weighted.

Denim Shorts

Thankfully there are different ways to style the denim short for a beach outing;

Denim shorts can be worn with a bright colour fancy top bra as in this picture.  Sun glass is a must for the beach. Throw a kimono and complement your look with a tote bag.

Another way to style your Denim short is to wear it with and lacey fancy top, add accessory tote bag and a hat. A flat sandal is perfect for the beach.

Brazilian flip flops are okay but if you are a lady of style you may want to add flat sandal to complete your style.

If you have planned a vacation at the beach house, you might not have to wear your denim short all through your stay.

You can bring in your jumpsuit, depending on the material.

A long slit skirt worn with a nice athletic bra can give you a sexy look at the beach or try the little romper – light weighted.

Ultimately, your lip color is up to you. If you feel like you look best in a coral but that doesn’t align with the “guidelines,” that’s okay—just do you.

At the end of the day, we all feel the prettiest in whichever choice makes us the most confident.

6 Amazing Ways to Boost Your Office Dressing Game

In the fashion world today, mass market clothing is increasing rapidly; it is almost like the uniform days are back on the stage again!

Shopping for workplace wears these days has become kind of excruciating!  If you are a stylish lady and your office is freewheeling on dress code, you still have to be unique and stand out from the mass-market crowd.

I have rounded up 6 Amazing ways to boost your office dressing game.

  1. Play Match up – I kinda agree professional attire shouldn’t be stuffy! But if you are trying to uptight your game – consider mixing up eccentric with conservative. The cropped pant and the wrap-front blazer are a fresh update on the two-piece suit. It won’t feel too out-there for the corporate world.

    Doesn’t all have to be suit always – A midi skirt with a nice pussy bow top is also a go for the office girl wishing to slay stylishly!

    A3

    Bring your chiffon to your work .  Wear it above a wide leg pant to create a chicky but corporate style.

  2. Maintain a colour pattern – switch from your regular black, white and grey to burgundy, Marsala and Glaucous

    Marsala colour ruffled top above a brown to skin shade body fitting skirt.

3. Mindful of fabric – Well anything goes these days; sad enough! I still disagree that spandex materials are to be worn to the office. Even if your colleagues have taken some liberties, you wouldn’t want your choices to make you appear in a negative way in the eyes of those who understands workplace dress code.

4. Avoid Trend driven style – if you wake up and find out that ladies are wearing bodycon, crop top or whatever inappropriate number they are wearing to work, don’t follow them, a good tailored pencil skirt would give you an edge anytime any day. crop tops, or crop-top-inspired clothing this is a NO NO for the workplace.

5. Keep your Accessories simple – bold earrings, loud make up, flamboyant hair styles all belong to the club house and not the office, a simple conservative accessory can also reflect your individual style.

just a little of each.

6. Less Exposure – well not just body parts, if you have got tattoos, piercings and ankle chains should be put away or covered properly as the case may be.

 

 

Athleisure Style

Athleisure is a new style in fashion. It is the style in which athletic apparels are worn to other places like; the workplace, to school, or at other casual or social occasions.

How to get away with fashion crimes

Unless you have a better definition or your own definition of what fashion is – we better just stick to the global definition which is: a popular style of clothing, hair design or even behaviour. Fashion can be a manner of doing something which could mean a manner of dressing e.g. she dresses younger than her age. Fashion can also be to put something in a particular form e.g. keeping your natural hair is a fashion.

Well let me not bore you with definitions that we are all aware of.

So how can you get away with fashion crime? Oh Yes there are “fashion crimes” let’s say things you can NEVER be caught in or don in public whichever sounds okay with you. Like a granny wearing a crop top or 16yrs wearing a granny undy! Well it is indeed a crime a pardonable one depending on who is the judge…

Recently, I got called out for wearing a red lipstick to work I’m like wait a sec… This is 2017! But it didn’t matter I had to add a nude colour lip gloss to tone down the colour. That is how it is done, you improvise

You may not completely erase the crime, in the fashion world you don’t get the chance to testify, the verdict is passed immediately!

So to prevent a fashion crime, you must know what crime you are about to commit.

Make sure it fits.

If the gloves don’t fit… please don’t wear it! Understand your body type and go for clothing’s that work for you best. If you are chubby avoid wearing Lycra spandex fabrics. Avoid exposing your not so flattering area like the stomach region, make jackets your best friend and wear deep colour regularly.  If you are skinny well, wear more flares and patterns the create size illusion

Colour Festival

Avoid applying too much colour on your face, go for more natural colours but if you ever get caught using too many colour don’t panic, just tone the colours in other areas  make sure that your face will be the only place with multi-colour and stick to mono tone in the other areas like your cloth, shoe and bag should all be one shade to avoid a colour festival incident.

The Glasses Trend

Here is the thing; wearing a pair of glasses makes you look smart but having a brain actually makes you look smarter! How about that? Either there is a good medical reason why you have to wear a pair of glasses or you don’t include it as your fashion accessories. To avoid this go for contact lenses, you would look charming rather than trying to look smart.

Going Comando

I agree sometimes we wanna go free-buffing or say do more to look sexy.  Give whatever reason that justifies this style but do not go comando in transparent clothing.  Comando is not best in loose materials or if you have a heavy rear. Just keep it simple in jeans, closely fitted pants not skirts or dresses.

Colourful hairstyles

I can’t say that I hate colours because it is almost sounding like I do; colours are good best for summer you know but not well for hair.  Pink, blue green I don’t know these are not colours that should be anywhere near your hair.

  • Flashing – The way all sorts of things becomes fashionable is fascinating. So some ladies are actually okay with flashing a lot of  skin and well no problem because we can understand its 2017. However we cannot pardon unnecessary display of cleavage! Dress according to your size and wear appropriate bra for your jugs.

Fascinator hats

A fascinator is a type of headpiece. This fashion piece dates back to 19th century. it was  lightweight hood or scarf worn about the head and tied under the chin, typically knitted or crocheted.

Today, the word fascinator is a formal headwear worn as an alternative to the hat; it is usually a large decorative design attached to a band or clip, sometimes incorporating a base to resemble a miniature hat, in which case it may be called a hatinator source Wikipedia

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, was spotted wearing a red ‘hatinator’ during her visit to Canada in 2011. she is literally the Queen of Fascinator.
